|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.
|Light Reflectivity and Heat
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.
