UPS 555 TC

Thermic Coating 140 X

UPS 555 TC Thermic Coating 140 X

UPS 555 TC THERMIC COATING 140 X is a high build solvent-free low emissivity coating deigned to reduce heat transfer from underlying metal surfaces thereby reducing heat loss and the risk of burns through personal contact.

The coating has been designed to be applied to hot operating surfaces ranging from 80°C to 140°C (176 °F - 248°F) and make hot surfaces safe to touch in line with ASTMStandard C-155.
