ARCOR S-20 RC

GENERIC TYPE: AMINE CURED 100% SOLIDS NOVOLAC, TOPCOAT

DESCRIPTION AND RECOMMENDED USES: ARCOR® S-20 Rapid Cure is a 10 min set version of our S-20, but offers Rapid Cure for quick repairs and return to service. Like our S-20, ARCOR S-20 RC is a solvent free, high functionality epoxy Novolac designed particularly as a protective coating for metals in highly aggressive environments especially high chemical, high abrasion and elevated temperature. Excellent in a wide array of caustics and acids. The ARCOR® S-20 multi-functional chemistry produces an excellent coating suited for aggressive service and is suitable for immersion in a wide array of chemicals. ARCOR® S-20 RC can be applied up to 40 mils without slump.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Steel surfaces are to be abrasive blasted with chloride free abrasive. Exterior applications to SSPC SP-10 Near White metal finish. Immersion applications to SSPC SP-5 White metal 4+ mil profile. Grind flat all burrs, weld seams, radius sharp edges. Fresh blasted ferrous surfaces to be primed with S-20 immediately to prevent oxidation of surface. Concrete surfaces should be degreased if oil and grease contamination is present. Degreased surface shall be high pressure 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. Prime with EE-10.

MIXING: Thoroughly mix Activator into Base with mixing stick or drill with low speed mixing blade scraping sides and bottom of container or mixing board. Mix by Volume 2-parts Base to 1-part Activator. Or by weight 100 grams Base to 50 grams Activator. Mix thoroughly to produce an even colored and streak-free material.

APPLICATION: Brush: medium to stiff bristle of sufficient quality that bristles do not pull out and stick in coating. Trim or tape to <1” nap. Roller: good quality 1/8” nap.

ARCOR Cartridge Sprayer: Heat to 140F(60C). Piston ‘3’; Tip Air ‘3’.

Plural Spray: .029-.035 RAC tip, 3,000-4,500 PSI, Heat to 160ºF Base, 120ºF Activator. Ambient Temperature and Humidity will affect temperature and pressure setting. Consult ARCOR.

Airless Spray: 029-.035 RAC tip, 4,500-5,500 PSI(60:1+). Recommended in-line heater at 120º to 135ºF (Caution: Short Pot-Life). Ambient Temperature and Humidity will affect temperature and pressure setting. Contact ARCOR.

All spray equipment should employ traps to prevent water and oil from contaminating coating and screens to prevent particulate contamination.

APPLICATION TEMPERATURE: Material: Keep between 55 to 95ºF(17 to 35ºC). Substrate: Keep between 45 to 105ºF(7 to 40ºC). The difference in temperature of the substrate and the material should never exceed 10ºF(5ºC). Substrate shall be a minimum of 5ºF(3ºC) above dew point. Do not apply if relative humidity exceeds 90%. If necessary heat metal prior to surface preparation using electric heater or heat lamp. Never use gas, oil or kerosene heaters as they will leave a greasy residue on metal surface. For best results keep all material in warm area overnight(75ºF+, 24ºC) for ease of mixing. If necessary base component of material can be heated by microwave for 30-45 seconds for a 1 KG Base unit.. If necessary let material cool before application to allow for more pot life during application.

THINNING: Never thin.

OVERCOAT / CURE TIME: By brush, roller or squeegee recoat while material is still soft, but tack-free, between 10 min- 2 hours at 77ºF(25ºC). IMPORTANT: If overcoat window is exceeded abrade surface with course sandpaper, grinder or brush blast and wipe with MEK or Acetone. By spray application recoat between 10 min-2 hours at 77ºF(25ºC). Full cure before immersion recommended 20 minutes at 77ºF(25ºC). Add 20 minute’s additional cure time for each 10ºF(-12.2ºC) below 77ºF(25ºC). For highly aggressive environments Force Cure with heat for best performance for 1 hours at 150ºF (66ºC), 20 minutes at 250ºF  (121ºC).

CLEAN UP: Clean tools immediately after use with M.E.K., Acetone, 98+% Isopropyl Alcohol 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. If irritation persists seek medical attention. Consult the Product Safety Data Sheets (SDS) BEFORE USE!
