A two-component acrylic PU coating with exceptional long-term resistance to chemicals and moisture. It is the preferred choice for industrial and marine applications.

Luxathane 5160 is the ideal choice for mild steel or galvanized iron surfaces that require exceptional protection, especially when combined with an epoxy undercoat. Luxathane 5160 is a two-component acrylic PU coating that finds a wide application in industries and marine environments – particularly offshore and onshore pipelines, tanks, chemical storage tanks, and more. Its long term endurance and resistance to a range of chemicals and moisture is matched by its neat and glossy finish.

Surface preparation Blast clean and make sure that the underlying surface is sound and undamaged. Remove all wax, oil and grease with a solvent. Clean thoroughly to remove soluble salts, dirt and dust and wash with fresh water. Pre-treat with one coat of Luxaprime 1500 and prime with a primer from the Epilux, Zincanode or Epimastic range of products.

Application procedure A build coat of Epilux or Epimastic range of intermediate coats can be applied. Luxathane 5160 comes in two packs, which must be mixed and allowed to stand for at least 10 minutes before application, to allow aeration (circulation of air through the mixture) to settle. An airless spray or conventional spray may be used. Use a brush or roller only for difficult shapes or touching up.

Solve Potential Paint Problems

1Why does the paint on my wall look wrinkled?

Wrinkling is when a painted surface looks rough and crinkled, which usually occurs when uncured paint forms a skin.

What are the possible causes?

  • Applying paint, especially if it is oil-based, too thickly
  • Uneven paint drying – paint film dries faster on top if you paint when it’s either very hot, or cold and damp
  • Uncured paint is exposed to high humidity
  • Exposing uncured paint to rain, dew
  • Top coat is applied in conditions of high humidity
  • Applying the top coat of paint to an insufficiently dried first coat
  • Painting over dirty or waxy surfaces

How can I fix the problem?

  • Repaint in the right conditions, avoiding high temperatures and extreme humidity
  • Remove wrinkled coating before repainting by scraping or sanding substrate. Apply primer and allow it to dry completely before applying the top coat.
  • Use a high quality top coat and apply it evenly and in the right concentration.
  • In exterior situations, scrape or sand substrate to remove wrinkled paint and repaint with a high quality exterior finish.
  • Apply at manufacturer’s recommended spread rate. Do remember that two coats at the right spread rate are better than one thick coat.
  • If you’re painting during very hot, cold or damp conditions, give the paint extra drying time between coats.

We recommend you use this painting system to avoid this problem the next time around:
