Silicone paint

  • Corrosion protective
  • Heat resistant
  • 1-component
  • Solvent-borne
  • DTM (direct-to-metal)
  • Topcoat

OLITERM 60 is a silicone paint pigmented with aluminium. The coating has a good adhesion to steel surfaces; resistant to high temperature exposure up to +650°C.

The paint can be used as a single layer protection of steel construction exposed in temperature up to +650°C or as a topcoat for steel construction primed with ethyl zinc silicate paint GALWASOL 19 or silicone paint OLITERM 52 exposed in temperature up to +500°C. OLITERM 60 forms a silvery coating withstanding heating up to +650 °C .

Surface preparation

Before cleaning of surface, it is recommended to wash it with water with addition of OLICLEAN 123 and then rinse with fresh water. Steel surface must be dry, grease- and dust-free, cleaned to the cleanliness degree at least Sa 2½ according to ISO 8501-1. Coat of zinc ethyl silicate paint type GALWASOL 19 or OLITERM 52 dry, without visible corrosion, free of salt, grease and dust. In case of amendment after assembly or to correct small defects of layer it is allowed to repaint it with OLITERM 60 but the surface must be cleaned to P St3 degree. In that cases, well adhered paint surface should be intact. The surface prepared for repainting must be free of oil, grease, dust, mill scale and purely adhered rust. Old paint surface and other contamination or impurities, should be cleaned carefully until it gets metallic sheen due to metallic substrate underneath. Additional instructive information for surface preparation can be found in standards EN ISO 12944-4 and ISO 8501-2.


Stir thoroughly before use. Apply by airless spray or brush. Suitable airless nozzle size 0.013 - 0.017"

Application conditions

The surface to be treated must be dry. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the product shall be above +5°C and the relative air humidity below 80%. Additionally, the temperature of the surface to be treated and the product must be at least +3°C above the dew point of the ambient air. Adequate ventilation during application and drying period is recommended.


The storage stability is shown on the label. Store in a cool place and in tightly closed containers.
