The article deals with heat-insulating coatings used in power industry. Special attention is paid to syntactic foams manufactured with the use of microspheres and various binding agents. Raw materials used in syntactic foams are analysed. Use of microspheres in syntactic foam structures defines their heat-insulating properties, ensures material density and heat conductivity reduction, whereas binding agents ensure mechanical strength and thermal stability of heat-insulating coating.
