Hempel 56914 Silicone Aluminium is a heat resistant aluminium pigmented polysiloxane paint which is formulated for the protection of hot pipelines up to 600°C.
Hempel 56914 Silicone Aluminium is formulated for the long term protection of hot pipelines, exhaust pipes, smoke stacks and other hot surfaces. In corrosive environment, Hempel 56914 is suitable for use alongside Hempel Galvosil 15780, Hempel Galvosil 15700, or Hempel Galvosil Fibre 15750.
Steel: Remove oil and grease etc. thoroughly with suitable detergent. Remove salts and other contaminants by high pressure fresh water cleaning. Abrasive blasting to Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007).
Stainless steel: Remove oil and grease etc. thoroughly with suitable detergent. Remove salts and other contaminants by high pressure fresh water cleaning. To be abrasive blasted to a uniform, sharp, dense profile, ISO Comparator Medium (G), corresponding to Rz minimum 50 micron.
Apply only on a dry and clean surface with a temperature above the dew point to avoid condensation. Minimum relative humidity: 50% . At relative humidity below 70%, curing is retarded. Use only where application and curing can proceed at temperatures above: 5°C/41°F. In confined spaces provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
The coating will be fully cured after: 7 days , 20°C/68°F. When the paint is applied on zinc silicate coatings, popping may occur after application or after first heating up. To avoid popping it is recommended to follow the procedure: A thin, undiluted coat is applied (the mist coat) and after a few minutes, a second coat is applied in the full specified film thickness as per the data sheet.
