Thermic Coating 140

UPS 554 TC Thermic Coating 140

UPS 554 TC THERMIC COATING 140 is a high build solvent-free, low emissivity coating, designed to reduce heat transfer from underlaying metal surfaces thereby reducing heat loss and the risk of burns through personal contact.

In addition, the coating provides long-term protection of steel structures against corrosion and reduces the potential for condensation on cold pipework. The coating has been designed to be applied to surfaces ranging from 4°C to 50°C. once cured the material will be able to operate at temperatures ranging from -20°C to 140°C (-4°F to 284°F) and make hot surfaces safe to touch in line with
ASTM Standard C-155.
