Quartz-Coat™ 845-Silver

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. - Quartz-Coat™ 845-Silver, a new high temperature, opaque, silvertop 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.


Quartz-Coat™ 845-Silver is a new, low expansion, ceramic-metallic formulation that bonds exceptionally well to glass and quartz halogen lamps. This formulation is a single part, water-based, inorganic system that is silver in appearance and enables the coating to absorb and evenly diffuse light at high temperatures. Quartz-Coat™ 845-Silver is stable in applications to 2000°F (1093°C).

Quartz-Coat™ 845-Silver is a direct replacement for more conventional aluminum filled, silicone based, solvent-rich coatings. Because 845-Silver is water-based and odorless, it is an ideal replacement for silicone coatings that are flammable and toxic.

Quartz-Coat™ 845-Silver is formulated to a viscosity range of 400-700 cps and solids content by volume of 42.0%. It is applied easily using conventional pneumatic spray equipment, and the typical dry film thickness is less than 1.0 mils. Curing can be accomplished rapidly in high-speed production systems by ramping the coating to 900-1000°F for 5 minutes. After curing, the finish is tough and moisture resistant, and no outgassing will occur, even at high temperatures.

Quartz-Coat™ 845-Silver is available in pint, quart and gallon containers.
