Since its inception, numerous industrial, automotive, and electrical engineers have developed new ideas for applications of VHT flameproof paint. These include aerospace hardware, smoke stacks, jet engines, heat exchangers, boilers, heaters, exhaust manifolds, mufflers, steam pipes, barbecues, electrical hardware, and countless other applications where resistance to high temperatures and/or weathering is required.
Flame Proof Paint Application: Apply a THIN, even coat of VHT FlameProof Paint - just enough to thoroughly COLOR. Excessive build-up is not necessary or recommended. In applications requiring heavy coating, build-up should be done in stages, each successive coat being cured as recommended below. Nominal coating wet thickness .0015'' - .002''.
VHT FlameProof paint coatings require no primer. For most economical use of VHT FlameProof colors on ''hard to hide'' surfaces, apply a thin coat of VHT FlameProof White or VHT FlameProof Silver base coating.
Curing: VHT FlameProof coatings will air dry in 15 to 30 minutes and if handled with reasonable care, may be put to immediate use. Heat curing method for maximum resistance to solvents, salt spray, humidity, thermal shock and heat:
On non-traffic surfaces and where solvent resistance is not required, VHT FlameProof coatings may be used as air-dried. Curing may be accomplished by the inherent heat of operation such as encountered in engine manifolds and exhausts, boilers, heaters, etc. or by following the curing instructions below.
