ALUCOAT is a single component bituminous reflective paint. The film of ALUCOAT that is formed after the evaporation of the solvent reflects sun radiation which as a result leads to a reduction of the substrate temperature. The surface exhibits good resistance to thin acids, alkalis solutions and to various corrosive chemicals. It does not resist to oils.
It is used as the final coating not only to all types of bituminous membranes but also to all bituminous coatings (solvent based as well as water based). It can also protect various type of substrates such as concrete, stone, metal, wood or polyurethane with its anti-corrosive capacity It is not compatible with polystyrene.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The surface must be smooth, clean and dry, free from dust, oils grease and other debris.
ALUCOAT is applied greatly as the final coating on many new and old waterproofing systems.
-In the case of bituminous membranes it carries its reflective capacity, retains the mineral slates to their place, contributes to the products resistance against ageing and reduces the temperature transmitted onto the surface.
-In the case of waterproofing coatings, it contributes to their protection against ageing and with its reflective capacity it reduces the temperature transmitted onto the surface.
-It is also used for the protection of metal surfaces against corrosion.
ALUCOAT is cold applied by brush, roller or spray gun.
Before use, good agitation of the material is required.
The application of at least two coats is recommended provided that the previous layer is completely dry.
The application of one thick layer of ALUCOAT must be avoided.
In the case of corroded metallic surfaces, after thorough cleaning, the surface must be primed with EXTRALAC PRIMER before the application of ALUCOAT.
An estimated consumption is 0.25- 0.3 kgr/m² depending on the surface.
It can be achieved by means of gasoline, oil, or other appropriate solvent.
ALUCOAT is flammable therefore it should be kept away from any sources of ignition. For more information, please consult the relevant Material Safety Data Sheet.
The product should be kept in firmly closed cans, in a cool and well ventilated environment. The properties of the product remain unchangeable for at least one year in normal storage conditions.
The product is supplied in cans of 5 kg and 18 kg.
