Luminescent version of Balloxy HB Light - for repair and maintenance of ballast tanks

IMO PSPC Approved
Type approved for use at newbuilding as well as for repair situations for both medium and long term protection.  Type approval certificates from several class societies – please see Certificates for details.

Compatible with ballast water treatment systems (BWTS)
When the approved BWTS systems are operated correctly and the active species’ concentration is not above 10 ppm, we see no detrimental effect on correctly applied and cured Balloxy HB Lumi.  

Visual DFT control
In order to obtain correct dry film thickness (DFT), Balloxy HB Lumi has built-in a visual DFT – you will obtain proper hiding of the substrate when the minimum wet film thickness is applied.
Visual mixing control
Two components with different colours make it easy to see when you have obtained proper mixing.

Visual inspection – Luminescent paint
Balloxy HB Lumi aids inspection with the help of a UV lamp. 

First coat inspection:
  • Areas of under thickness show up as ‘black’ spots
  • Areas of high dry film thickness appear much brighter than low thickness areas
Second coat inspection:
  • Holidays will show the first coat only, and any other defects will be seen

Second coat of Balloxy HB Light under UV light. Shows low dry film thickness on the edge as a bright line, proving the need for a stripe coat.

Balloxy HB Lumi also has a winter grade curing agent for application down to -5˚C .
