Heat and Frost Insulators are on mechanical, insulation, and fire stopping jobs for industrial, commercial, residential, and government users. The work involves energy efficient, state-of-the art fire safety and pollutant-free environments which are vital to where we live and work.

Members of Heat and Frost Insulators Local 18 have been on the job at the Elanco Clinton Labs, Indiana State University School of Nursing Science, and various projects at Indiana University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and Clay Community Schools. Members are also on the
job at the Martinsville Power Plant, the Harding Street Indianapolis
Powerhouse and the Sugar Creek Generating Station.

The 275 members of the Heat and Frost Insulators 18 serve 32
counties in central Indiana, and five counties in central Illinois from
Danville to Champaign.
Membership benefits include
competitive benefits and wages,
equal opportunity, overtime pay,
union representation and security.

The national association is the
International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers. The insulators use a salamander in their logo because of its unique ability to live in fire.
