Pyrocote Z1 is a cream colored, thixotropic, water-based zircon coating, formulated to meet the needs of molten steel and molten aluminium contact. Its thixotropic properties become liquid and easy to apply when shear forces are encountered, such as when the coating is stirred, brushed, sprayed, rolled or similarly applied. After a short period of time, undisturbed material in the container will revert to its original thixotropic gel properties. Inherent thixotropic properties also provide protection against the problems of cracking or spalling during subsequent rapid drying of thick applications.
WARNING: Never contact wet coatings with molten metal.
