Aremco introduces Quartz-Coat 845-Green high temperature coating for halogens

January 17, 2011

Quartz-Coat 845-Green, a new high temperature, opaque, green-top coating developed by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to reduce glare in halogen lamps used in the automotive, dental, aircraft, stadium and fire safety industries, for applications to 1500°F (816°C). Quartz-Coat 845-Green is a new, high temperature, green-pigmented formulation that bonds well to glass and quartz halogen lamps. This formulation is a single part, water-based, odorless, inorganic system that is green in appearance and enables the coating to absorb and evenly diffuse light at high temperatures. Quartz-Coat 845-Green is formulated to a viscosity range of 500-1000 cP (centipoises) and solids content by volume of 60 percent. It is applied by dipping or using conventional pneumatic spray equipment, and the typical dry film thickness is less than 1.0 mils (0.001”). Curing can be accomplished rapidly in high-speed production systems by ramping the coating to 900-1000°F for five minutes. After curing, the finish is tough and moisture resistant, and no outgassing will occur, even at high temperatures. It is available in pint, quart and gallon containers.
