Bumi Coat is a two-component, solvent based, glass-ceramic composite coating. It is resistant to low temperature of -20⁰C and high temperature resistance up to 1000⁰C continuously, if the substrates permit. The coating can be used as both primer and finish coat. Suitable for steel surfaces such as carbon steel and stainless steel, in addition to ceramic substrates. All applications are advised to adhere to the Application Guide. Application can be performed on hot substrates up to 70⁰C
The product is designed to prevent corrosion on insulated and non-insulated substrates. Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) can be prevented. The ability of the coating to withstand high temperature makes it suitable for Chimney & Ducting (external), Boilers, High Temperature Induced Draft (ID) Fans, Thermal Power Plant, Petrochemical Industries, High Temperature Reactors, Heat Exchangers etc. With heat induced curing, the coating will become abrasion resistant, making it appropriate for Chimney & ducting (internal), Ash Conveyors, Boiler Drums, External Steam Valves and Fittings. Cured Bumi Coat can be applied in a continuously submerged environment such as water and oil tanks to prevent corrosion and substrate erosion.

BUMI COAT can be applied using 2 methods
Spray : Use Airless spray or Air Paint Sprayer / High Volume – Low Pressure (HVLP).
Brush : Recommended for smaller areas. Care must be taken to achieve required Dry Film Thickness (DFT)

|Surface touch dry||: The state of drying when slight pressure with a finger does not leave an imprint of reveal tackiness.|
|Walk-on-dry||: Minimum time before the coating can tolerate normal foot traffic without permanent marks, imprints or other physical damage.|
|Dry to over coat||: The recommended shortest time before the next coat can be applied.|
|Dried / cured for service||: Minimum time before the coating can be permanently exposed to the intended environment.|
Abrasion resistance of the product can be realized with heat induced (direct or indirect) curing. Curing is an additional non-compulsory process.

Curing is resulted by substrates’ natural operating temperature or by other heating element such as heating torch, burner and oven.
Drying and curing times are determined under controlled temperatures and relative humidity below 85% and at average DFT of the product.
Pot Life at ambient temperature : 12 hours
|Carbon Steel / Stainless Steel||700⁰C||800⁰C|
The temperature stated reflects the retention of protective properties. Aesthetic properties may suffer at these temperatures.
