In addition we have (2) 45-lb bags of CalCoat-127 and (3) 45-lb bags of Ramcote 1200. CalCoat-127 is a mixture of Portland cement, calcium silicate, and reinforcing fiber for use as a weather barrier and decorative finish for calcium silicate, perlite, and mineral wool thermal insulation products. Applications: Due to its composition and low thermal conductivity, Cal-Coat (Smooth Kote) is recommended for finishing use with calcium silicate or perlite insulation in high-temperature piping and equipment applications. Because of its corrosion inhibiting properties, it is especially recommended for industrial processing and power generating facility applications using stainless steel piping and operating at temperatures up to 1200°F (649°C).

Ramcote 1200 is a "one coat" insulating and finishing product composed of mineral fiber, binders and corrosion inhibiting agents. It dries to a white monolithic finish over applied surfaces. It is blended to produce excellent adhesion and a smooth finish. This cement can be poured, palmed, troweled or air-gunned into place. It has exceptionally good adhesive qualities and may be applied directly to the metal surfaces or over insulated and refractory surfaces.

We also have several pieces of Fiberglass pipe insulation of various diameter.
