When it comes to ITC ceramic coatings, there are five different types. They include ITC 148, ITC 100 HT ceramic coating, ITC 213 ceramic coating for metals, ITC 296A ceramic top coating, and ITC 200 EZ ceramic repair.
ITC 100 HT Ceramic Coating is a versatile high temperature ceramic coating that is proven to achieve outstanding energy savings and refractory protection. It can be used by itself or as a base coat for other ITC products. It's typically used as a covering for ceramic fiber insulation or castable refractory.
In order to apply your ITC 100 HT ceramic coating, you're going to need the following:
- A 30-gallon or larger rubber container to mix the ITC material.
- A half-inch drill motor or larger with long mixing attachment.
- Rubber gloves.
- Graco Tex Spray RTX 1500 spray gun or equivalent.
- Clean rags.
Follow these installation steps so you can apply your ITC 100 HT ceramic coating:
- ITC 100 can be used as a final coat over ITC ITC 213, ITC 148 and ITC
200EZ. ITC 100HTcan be used as a stand-alone product if you apply it over hard refractory, brick, or ceramic fiber.
- Remove and repair all loose and weaken brick and hard refractory.
- Remove all dust from previously coated ITC and dried surfaces. Clean off all debris, dust, and grease from interior walls, doors, crown, floor, and grooves.
- Prepare the ITC 100 HT for spraying according to the micing instructions by adding a half-inch container of water to one full container of ITC 100 HT.
- Spray the entire surface with ITC 100 HT using a minimum of 80 psi air pressure. Don't rush, and don't leave any areas uncoated. The thickness of the spray coating should be around one-sixteenth of an inch to one-eighth of an inch thick. The distance of the spray nozzle to the fiber surface should be around 16 inches.
- Don't overspray either. Too thick of an application will cause the material to fail prematurely.
- Allow the coating to dry overnight.
After you apply your coating, don't use excessive heat to dry the coating during the first 24 hours after application. You can either use fans to move the air, or simply leave it to dry overnight. The first during should be started with a lower heat to start for roughly six hours.
