An Excellent Thermal Insulator
Unlike traditional coatings such as wet paints, polyester or PVC based products, the coating chemical make-up is such that it is an excellent thermal insulator making it Warm to Touch, even in winter. In fact, the colder the ambient temperature, the more noticeable the warmth of the coating is.
In single coat applications, thickness of 170 to 300 microns (0.17 – 0.3mm) can be achieved and flock-spraying or fluidized bed dipping, up to 750 microns (0.75mm) can be attained, thus preventing the heat from the hand transferring to the metal surface.
Another key feature of the coating in the light of the new regulations is that although extremely smooth and glossy, the surface is also slip-resistant. It is available in a wide range of colours and more recently, in various finishes ensuring that the aesthetic appeal of the coating can be considered as well as compliance with the UK’s new regulations.
No constituents feature on the Environmental Health 2000 list as the formulation contains no solvents, no VOC’s, no heavy metals, no TGIC’s, no phosphates and no halogens.
