Luxatherm 5600

A single component, heat resistant finish formulated based on a modified silicone binder and pigmented with aluminium flakes.

Luxatherm 5600 is a heat resistant finish coating for use on primed 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 suitable for both new construction as well as a maintenance coating. It has excellent weathering properties and overall durability. It air dries tack-free at room temperature and achieves fully cured state on subsequent baking, normally achieved when coated component is brought into service.

Surface preparation

  • This product should be applied to an abrasive blast cleaned surface that has been suitably primed, e.g. with Luxatherm 1600 or Zincanode 330. Please follow surface preparation requirements of the specific primer being used. After priming proceed as follows:
  • Ensure that the surface to be coated is clean and dry.
  • Remove all wax, oil and grease in accordance to guidelines given by SSPC-SP1.
  • Dry brushing to remove soluble salts, dirt and dust.
