VHT FlameProof is a proprietary blend of ceramic and silicone chips originally engineered for NASA's use on space bound and atmospheric re-entry spacecraft. When applied to metallic or other heat-stable surfaces, this sophisticated coating remains impervious to extreme temperatures (up to 1500°F), which other silicone and ceramic coatings cannot withstand on a continuous basis. This extremely unique coating is a matte finish that is capable of withstanding very high temperatures. Used extensively in the automotive and aerospace fields to coat exhaust systems, turbo housings, piston domes and exhaust valves. In use today on the B-2 Bomber, Space Shuttle, satellites, aircraft and all forms of motorsports. Approved for use by many leading companies such as: B.F. Goodrich Aerospace, Raytheon, Northrup, Honeywell, Ford Motor Company, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Hughes, Rockwell International, Toyota and Daimler Chrysler.
FlameProof is available in the
following colors:

SP-101 FLAT WHITE
SP-102 FLAT BLACK
SP-104 FLAT GRAY
SP-105 GLAT GOLD
SP-106 FLAT SILVER
SP-108 FLAT YELLOW
SP-109 FLAT RED
SP-110 FLAT BLUE
SP-117 FLAT ALUMINUM
SP-118 FLAT WHITE PRIMER

How To Apply:

Surfaces must be dry and free from oil, grease, dirt, rust, scale, paint, etc. For best results, metal surfaces should be prepared by sandblasting. Use only high-grade cleaners that leave no residue, such as VHT's Brake Cleaner (product #SP-11) to cleanse all foreign substances from surface. VHT FlameProof White Primer (Product #SP-118) is recommended for maximum adhesion prior to applying color coat. Shake can for one minute after marble is heard. Hold can upright 12-16 inches from surface during application. Apply a thin, even coat while moving can in a crosshatch pattern. Do not try to achieve full coverage during the first coat. Apply coats in 15-20 minute intervals. For best results, it is recommended that each coat be cured completely before applying the next layer of coverage. Excessive coating will result in running of paint and lead to blistering.

Curing:

VHT Flameproof Coatings will dry in 15 to 30 minutes. Baking ( a Bar-B-Que works great) at 250° F for 30 minutes, then 30 minutes at 400° F, then 30 minutes at 650° F, improves finish and provides a durable surface for solvent resistance. The inherent heat of operation as encountered in exhaust manifolds, boilers, heaters, ovens, etc. may also accomplish curing. Run heat source until hot then cool for 30 minutes, run heat source again until hot and allow to cool for 30 minutes. ALL CURING MUST BE DONE SLOWLY. Until coating is cured finish is not solvent resistant. It is recommended that each individual coat must be cured completely before applying the next layer of coverage.
