Why is it important to treat and maintain heating pipes?
It is important that heating pipes are treated. Just think of the different temperatures, high humidity, wear caused by pipe rail trolleys and rust formation to which heating pipes are exposed. Painted heating pipes provide a 30% higher heat output and 50% higher light output than unpainted (rusted) pipes.
LASSEX pipe paint
HBV Coatings carries the well-known LASSEX pipe paint under exclusive label. This high-quality product, which has proven it’s excellent quality for a long time, is constantly being developed. We supply LASSEX in the colors light gray (RAL 9002) and white (RAL 9010), both in satin and high gloss, in 20 liter cans. LASSEX is composed on the basis of linseed oil, zinc phosphate, alkyd resin and anticorrosive pigments, giving the product a greasy character. Because of this composition, the paint has a high corrosion resistance and does not break through where the pipe rail trolley makes its traces. LASSEX is suitable for both the treatment of new heating pipes and for maintenance work. LASSEX combines the hardness of a top coat with the anti-corrosion properties of a single. This guarantees years of protection and rust protection in every layer of paint!
Safe for crops
LASSEX is not harmful to the crops when the processing and scoring advices is carefully followed.
- Provide a dry, clean, dust and grease-free surface;
- Preferably paint on hand-warm pipes. Any moisture will then be expelled;
- If the pipe is a few degrees warmer than the surrounding area, LASSEX is even easier to process; the paint flows better and there is a perfectly closed layer;
- Ventilate during processing and drying of the paint;
- Heat the pipes for at least 24 hours at 80° C.
LASSEX can be processed perfectly with a brush or washcloth. If you want to paint yourself, HBV Coatings will start the project, instruct your employees and supervise the process. It is then of course important that you follow the above guidelines and processing advice. On request, HBV Coatings provides the execution of paintwork of heating pipes with the help of a professional paintteam.
