Luxatherm 1600

A two component, heat resistant primer formulated based on a modified silicone binder and pigmented with zinc dust.

Luxatherm 1600 is a heat resistant primer coating for use on steel substrates subjected to temperatures of up to 600ºC in a wide range of industrial environments, e.g. petrochemical plants, power stations, offshore structures etc. It is designed to be overcoated with Luxatherm 5200, Luxatherm 5600 or Luxatherm 6200 heat resistant finishes. It air dries to tack-free at room temperature and achieves fully cured state on subsequent baking. Has excellent adhesion to steel with outstanding anti-corrosive performance.

Surface preparation

  • This product should be applied to an abrasive blast cleaned steel surface. If this is not carried out effectively, contaminants present on the steel surface can cause loss of adhesion of the coating system when the temperature is raised when the coating is brought into service.
  • Remove all wax, oil and grease by solvent cleaning in accordance to guidelines given by SSPC-SP1.
  • Where necessary remove weld spatter and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to a smooth surface.
  • Abrasive blast clean to a minimum standard of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP10.
  • Any surface defects revealed by blast cleaning should be ground, filled or treated in a suitable manner.
  • An average surface profile of 50 microns is acceptable but this average should not exceed 75 microns.
  • After blasting, remove dust from the surface.
  • The surface to be coated must be clean and dry.
  • Apply Luxatherm 1600 immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. In case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.

Application procedure

Mix the pigment component slowly into the binder component while stirring using a mechanical stirrer/ agitator to ensure a homogenous mix, free from lumps.
