Product reference: 3/62

Product title: Flarestack Nanopaint

Valid from: 10th November 2009

Last reviewed: May 2019

Type: A single pack, aluminium flake-filled silicon coating for high temperature substrates in non-immersed service.

Suggested use

Flarestack Nanopaint provides good corrosion protection to non-immersed metal surfaces from ambient temperature up to 1110°F (600°C) and in thermal cycling conditions. Suggested use primarily as a corrosion protection for Flare Stacks and other high temperature atmospheric serviceapplications. It is also used as an under-insulation corrosion barrier to prevent problems associated with CUI.


Flarestack Nanopaint should be applied at substrate temperatures below 122°F (50°C) and temperaturesabove 46°F (8°C). Flarestack Nanopaint must not be applied to surfaces at elevated temperatures. Do notapply to damp or wet surfaces.

Health & safety

When using this product, safety precautions should be observed. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin. Suitable protective clothing should be worn. Ensure good ventilation and wear a vapor mask recommended for hydrocarbon solvent vapors. Read the Health and Safety Sheets before using the product.

Surface preparation

Wherever possible abrasive grit blast cleaning to SSPCSP10 (ISO Standard 8501-1 Sa) or equivalent shouldbe used (for full details, refer to Corrocoat data sheetSP1). UHP water blasting may be used to NACE No 5 / SSPC – SP12WJ-2/L standard, the substrate must be dry before application of the material. Flarestack Nanopaint can be applied over a mechanically prepared substrate but this will lead to a deterioration in performance. Remove any surface grease, oil or other contamination using a suitable solvent or degreasing agent. Remove any loose material from the surface by mechanical means and complete using suitable equipment to a standard not lower than ST2

82°F (28°C).

Specific gravity

80°F (27°C) (Closed Cup method).


Brush or roller application, or by airless spray apparatus using a 45:1 pump ratio and a gun fitted with a 13 thou reversiblespray tip. Wet film applications of over 5 mils (120 microns) are to be avoided.


Not normally required. If required, only Xylene should be added, up to a maximum of 5% by volume.


Up to 12 months minimum in original unopened tins


Metallic Aluminium finish.

Recommended DFT

Generally 2 or 3 coats of approximately 1-2 mils (30-50 microns) DFT per coat are required. Edges and othercorrosion-susceptible areas may benefit from a stripe coat before or in between main coats. WFT’s of more than 5 mils (120 microns) must not be applied, as excessive WFT’s will affect the cure of the product.

Temperature resistance

Up to 1110°F (600°C) in service.

Touch dry time

Variable, approximately 30 minutes from application at 68°F (20°C).

Overcoat time

As soon as the first coat is dry, after approximately 30 minutes at 68°F (20°C).
