Aliflex MX40
passes the
following tests:-

Continuous Hot Salt Spray (40 C) 1000 hours (Test further extended to 2000 hours and subsequently removed from test at nearly 4000 hours)

(As a comparison a ‘best’ quality gloss paint lasts a maximum 200 hours in this test)

Reflectance (After test)

For your benefit, we operate a continuous test and evaluation programme to ensure that Aliflex MX40 remains the best in its class.
Aliflex MX40 gives exceptionally good results in marine environments on all substrates; including protection of steel from corrosion. (see 2000 hour hot salt spray test data)

Support pillars, pipelines, pumping equipment, storage tanks, farm machinery, steel building cladding, etc.


Aliflex MX40 has been used in the following areas:-

Railway Carriage roofs, Ships cabin roofs, 20 foot and 40 foot sea container sealing, undersealing sea containers, general vehicle underseal and protective, chassis and subframe protection on commercial vehicles, cars and caravans.

It should be remembered that Aliflex MX40 contains bitumen and it will soften or be destroyed in contact with solvents and oils.

General Specification
Flash point Above 39C
Specific gravity 1.1 - 1.2
Solids (Volume) 50 - 52%
Coverage rate up to 2m2 per litre subject to surface profile, porosity and texture.
Unit sizes 25 and 200 litre drums (smaller sizes subject to quantity)
Light Reflectivity and Heat Dispersion

Aliflex MX40 uses very high quality Aluminium in the formulation, and light reflectance figures of 70 - 80% can be expected.

Recent tests using surface mounted thermometers on the rear of exposed test panels, showed a reduction of 25% in transmitted 'Through Heat' from the panel protected with Aliflex MX40.

When this figure is applied to a reduction in general roof temperatures and heat transmission rates, it can be expected that a reduction of 15 - 20% may be expected in the internal airspace temperature, although this can not be guaranteed due to variations in roof profiles and specifications. However, there will be a positive reduction in temperature, which reduces running times of air conditioning units, saving electricity costs.
