SURFACE PREPARATION: Steel surfaces are to be abrasive blasted with chloride free abrasive. Exterior applications to SSPC SP-6 Commercial gray metal finish. Immersion applications to SSPC SP-5 White metal. Grind flat all burrs, weld seams, radius sharp edges. Fresh blasted surfaces to be primed with ARCOR™ EE-10.
Concrete surfaces should be degreased if oil and grease contamination is present. Degreased surface shall be high pres- sure washed, acid etched and high pressure washed again so surface is clean and free of all grease, oils and surface laitance. Existing coatings should be abrasive blasted to clean concrete.
MIXING: Thoroughly mix Activator into Base with mixing stick or drill with low speed mixing blade. Mix by Volume 2 parts Base to 1 part Activator. Or by weight 100 grams base to 50 grams activator. Mix thoroughly to produce and even colored, streak- free material.
THINNING: Never thin.
APPLICATION: All spray equipment should employ traps to prevent water and oil from contaminating coating and screens to prevent particulate contamination.
By brush use medium to stiff bristle of sufficient quality that bristles do not pull out and stick in coating. Trim or tape to <1” nap.
Roller use good quality 1/8” nap, 1/4” on concrete.
Plural Spray use .017-.019 tip, 2,000-2,500 PSI, Heat to 120ºF Base, 100ºF Activator. Airless Spray use .017-.021 tip, 2,000-2,500 PSI(Caution: Short Pot-Life) Conventional Spray: Not Recommended
APPLICATION TEMPERATURE: Material: Keep between 55 to 95ºF (13 to 35ºC). Substrate : Keep between 45 to 105ºF (7 to 40ºC). The difference in temperature of the substrate and the coating should never exceed 10ºF (5ºC).
OVERCOAT/CURE TIME: Brush or Roller re-coat between 6 and 14 hours at 77ºF (25ºC).
Spraying re-coat between 3 and 14 hours. Full cure before immersion 7 Days at 77ºF.
Force Cure: 12 hours at 150ºF (66ºC); 6 hours at 200ºF (93ºC).
CLEAN UP: M.E.K. or similar
WARNING: Base contains epoxy resin. Activator contains alkaline amines, a strong sensitizer. May cause skin irritation, sensitization or other allergic responses. Use with good ventilation, particularly if heated or sprayed. Prevent all contact with skin or eyes. Wear protective clothing, goggles, gloves or barrier creams. Keep containers closed when not in use. Wash thoroughly after handling. In case of skin contact immediately wash with soap and water. In case of eye contact, flush with water for 15 minutes.
