A single pack, high temperature coating formulated with a leafing aluminum pigment and silicone vehicle that withstands temperatures up to 220°C. Widely used on steelwork which requires paint with good heat resistance; un-insulated chimney stacks, retorts, exhausts, jet engines, boiler fronts, kilns, high pressure steam lines, furnaces, boilers, kilns, metal fireplaces, grills and other hot metal surfaces requiring a heat resistant protective coating. It forms a super durable porcelain-like bond on surfaces at high temperatures and offers excellent resistance to gasoline, rust, salt spray, oil, grease and humidity. The heat resistant properties of this material only develop after heating to 200°C.
Characteristics: Leafing aluminium pigment in a special synthetic medium.
Advantages: Durable. Dries to a brilliant, glossy, silver finish. Tough cured finish resists oil, gas, grease, rust, salt, humidity and solvents. Good adhesion, flexibility and reflectivity.
