SurfaPaint ThermoDry Metals coating has the ability to prevent heat transfer due to low thermal conductivity, reflects infrared radiation, re-emits heat and prevents moisture penetration, resulting in significant energy savings. SurfaPaint ThermoDry Metals is a water-repellent paint that results in resistance to adverse conditions. In addition, it provides anti-corrosion protection, excellent elasticity, adhesion, covering and can withstand temperatures up to 150oC. Available in white and can be used for coloring in light shades. SurfaPaint ThermoDry Metals is a cool colour, certified by the European Cool Roofs Council (ECRC).
Ferrous metal surfaces, industrial buildings, tubular heat exchangers, metal tanks, freight containers, metal pipelines.
Applicability: SurfaPaint ThermoDry Metals can be used directly on all types of ferrous metals. On non-ferrous metals such as aluminium and on freshly galvanised steel, a
primer should be used.
Preparation: Ensure all surfaces are clean, without dust, dirt or grease and dry prior to application. Remove any loose rust or flaking paint with abrasive paper or a wire brush. Painted surfaces should be sanded prior to application. No primer is required.
Application note: Stir well before application. If thinning is required add up to 5% water by volume. Apply 2 to 3 even coats using a good quality brush, roller or by spraying with a tip of a diameter 1,4mm or more. Do not over-brush. Ensure corners and edges are adequately covered. Additional coats should be applied 3 hours after the previous application.
Spreading rate: 10-12 m²/L.
Drying time: Typically 1 hour depending upon coat thickness. Low temperatures and high humidity will lengthen drying times.
Cleaning of tools: All tools and equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with water.
