OPACI-COAT-300® Silicone Paint

Introduction

OPACI-COAT-300® silicone paint is a water-based, elastomeric coating that provides optimal glass opacification. Applied without heat during the final stage of the spandrel fabrication process, OPACI-COAT-300® can be used with equal effectiveness on annealed glass (interior only) or heat-treated glass. OPACI-COAT-300® creates a rubberlike film when applied to glass, and, when specified, may satisfy criteria for fallout protection without the need for taping or the application of scrim films.

    Applications

    OPACI-COAT-300® Silicone Paint Applications

    • Spandrel glass can be installed monolithically, using insulated metal backpans, but is more often found as a component of an insulating glass unit. Reflective spandrel glass units are widely used when a uniform all-glass look is desired for the building exterior. Typical applications include commercial fixed windows, curtain walls, storefronts and wall cladding. Spandrel glass is traditionally an opaque material not intended for use in vision areas.

    Capabilities

    OPACI-COAT-300® Silicone Paint Capabilities

    • Maximum size on 1/4" glass(1): 72" x 144"
      Minimum size on 1/4" glass: 12" x 12"
      (1) Represents typical standard size limitations; please review larger and smaller size requirements with Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope®.
      Designed for nonvision areas, spandrel glass should be glazed against a dark uniform background, void of light. Spandrel glass is normally heat-strengthened or fully tempered to withstand higher temperatures.

    Characteristics

    OPACI-COAT-300® Silicone Paint Characteristics

    • Spandrel glass is designed to be glazed against a dark background and should not be used in transoms, partitions, or other areas where it can be viewed in transmission. If it is used where light may be seen through the glass, a consultation with the glass fabricator is mandatory.
