THIXON® 423 Clear Features & Benefits

Product Highlights

Good one-coat system for Thermoplastic Urethane to metal bonding with better heat resistance that THIXON® 405.

Applications & Uses

Use Recommendations
Mix Instructions

Diluent - PM acetate, or THIXON® 917 solvent blend should be mixed into THIXON® 423 Blue to ensure consistent and uniform coating color.

Application Technique
  • Brushing: for brush applications use undiluted. Brush on a heavy wet film of THIXON® 423 without brushing excessively. To obtain the required film thickness, brush on two coats. Dip - For dip applications, dilute 3 parts THIXON® 423 with 1 part diluent. To obtain a film thickness of 1 mil, dip twice.
Drying the Film

Dry the film of THIXON® 423 before continuing. At normal room temperature, dry for 30 to 45 minutes. At lower temperatures, dry longer. The drying time can be shortened by force drying approximately 5 to 10 minutes at 120 to 160°F. Do not dry at temperatures above 180°F.

Molding and Curing

Most molding and curing methods. Use a cure temperature between 190 to 350°F.

Pre-Bake Resistance

For the best results, prebake the coated metals for ½ to 3 hours at 200 to 300°F, depending on the weight of the metal. This product can withstand prebaking in forced air convection ovens, with proper ventilation, for up to 16 hours at 250°F.

Dry Film Stability

Excellent dry film stability. Inserts which have been coated can be stored for several weeks before use, if they are protected from airborne contaminants.

Clean-up

Equipment clean up should be done using recommended dilution solvents.
