An easy clean, one pack, high solids silicone alkyd finish, with low solar absorption (LSA) pigmentation. The active pigment package minimises rust staining and highlights corroded areas that need repair. Provides superior performance and lower heat absorption in comparison to typical silicone alkyd finishes.
- Excellent color and gloss retention.
- Easy to apply and recoat.
- Low VOC.
Interlac®1 is qualified according to the specification:
- US NAVY MIL –PRF-24635, Tipo II,Class 2, LSA anti-stain
- Italian Navy according to S.T.Q. 7/001/C.

Features and benefits
Features Benefits Excellent durability Excellent operational yield
Reduced maintenance costs
Ease of cleaning With sponge, without abrasives or with a pressure washer in case of large surfaces. One component Ease of application and reduction
Packaging with active pigment
Minimization of stagnation of rust and
maintenance of the original aesthetic appearance
Low solar absorption Reduction of energy required for air conditioning systems by limiting operating costs.
Provides a more comfortable working environment for crew and sensitive electronic equipment.
Strong resistance qualities Reduced maintenance costs
Low solar absorption technology
In relation to the type of boat, the external bridges have the capacity to absorb infrared rays generated by the sun (heat) which generate an increase in the temperature of the sheet bridges and a consequent increase in temperature in the internal areas of the boat.
This effect can put a strain on the units responsible for the production of air conditioning used to maintain the internal operating temperatures at tolerable values.
The low solar absorption bridge (LSA) finishes can therefore reduce the energy used for air conditioning systems (and therefore operating costs) while providing a better working environment for the crew and for sensitive electronic devices. to temperature variations.
Temperature Vs Exposure time
In order to evaluate the temperature variation as a function of the solar exposure time, two panels were taken into consideration, both in steel. Also in this case the first one was treated with Interlac®1 paint (LSA) while the second one with traditional alkyd-silicone paint.
Differences measured in the temperature of the steel as a direct result of solar exposure, show the advantages in using LSA technology.
In fact, already after about 14 minutes of sun exposure you can appreciate a temperature difference for the 2 panels evaluable in about:
55 ° C – 47 ° C = 8 ° C
