Product Info

ViterLac C12 Primer/Finish is a single pack pack, phenolic-modified alkyd eggshell primer/finish specially developed for the transport container market.

It is a  high build, fast drying one-coat system with an eggshell finish which helps disguise typical dents and welds and with good colour stability. A high content of zinc phosphate anticorrosive pigment gives high levels of protection in aggressive environments.

Tested for resistance to BS148 transformer oil and is available in a very wide colour range. 

It is applied to dry cargo transport containers, ISO tank containers, anti-vandal accommodation units, waste containers and other industrial steel fabrications.

Preparation
Surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry and free from any material such as oil, grease, salts and dirt that might affect adhesion.
Remove loose flaking or friable material. 
Where necessary, remove weld spatter and grind smooth all rough,sharp edges and weld seams.

Thoroughly degrease with Cleaner Degreaser (Product Reference H30 or ND14) and lightly abrade any very shiny areas. 

Mild Steel 
Degrease with a Cleaner Degreaser (Product Reference H30 or ND14) and either manually abrade or blast clean to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007)
If blast cleaning is not possible, phosphating is recommended for cold rolled steel to improve adhesion.
