Water Based Temperature Indicating Paints

A new range of temperature indicating paints are now available.

This range uses only non-hazardous pigments in a modern water-based acrylic & silicone binder. Ideal for process control to demonstrate parts have been through a heating process, or as a warning signal for overheating. These paints have no shipping restrictions, reducing transport costs & environmental impact significantly, whilst improving safe handling. The standard range of paints are designed to be applied by brush, however they can be supplied at reduced viscosity for spraying.

Smarttags-Thermal Indicating paints

Super versatile for many applications:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • LowVOCs
  • Non-hazardous
  • No shipping restrictions
  • Ease of application
  • Rapid drying
  • Various temperatures available *
  • Distinct colour changes *
  • Good scratch resistance**
  • Some oil, water resistance**

* These paints are time & temperature dependent. Detailed Technical Data Sheets available on request. ** Paints should be cured at 175° C for 60 minutes for increased oil, water and abrasion resistance.

Single Change Paints

Specification: Ref. SC paint; Accuracy: +/- 5%

Single Change Thermal Paints are now colour fast in direct sunlight, resistant to chemical abuse and provide a clearline colour change, proving to be an extremely useful aid to the industrial, chemical and petrochemical markets. An ideal tool for monitoring lined vessel plant, detecting rise in surface temperature where the refractory linings have broken down, acting as an invaluable tool for this type of industry.

Range: 135°C/275°F to 630°C/1166° F

Quasi reversible single change paints are also available at 48°C/118° F and 80°C/176° F

 Supplied in the following containers: 250ml, 500ml, 1 litre & 2.5 litres.

Multi Change Paints

Specification: Ref MC paint; Accuracy: +/- 5%

Multi Change Thermal Paints withstand hostile environments and prove a valuable asset, particularly when used in conjunction with gas turbines and jet engines·. Being the only paint of its type known to retain its surface adhesion at these temperatures, thus offering a high degree of protection from erosion. Used extensively in rocketry and high speed flight technology, these paints prove to be an invaluable tool in thermal measurement.

Range: 104°C/219° F to 1270°C/2318° F

Supplied in the following containers: 250ml, 500ml, 1 litre & 2.5 litres.
