Product Info

A high performance two pack epoxy primer with added Micaceous iron oxide metal pigments for added protection and abrasion resistance in severe environments. 
It is heavy duty providing a protective, high film thickness in one coat.

It is an ideal coating for the protection of structural steel, plant and machinery used in difficult conditions. Excellent for protection of substrates in marine environments above and below the water line.
Provides very good chemical resistance.
The added Micaceous Iron Oxide (MIO) gives optimum protection of the substrate.

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.

Galvanised steel
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.

Phosphate Steel 
Degrease with Cleaner Degreaser (Product Reference H30 or ND14) and manually abrade prior to application of the Primer Coat

Stainless Steel
Degrease with Cleaner Degreaser (Product Reference H30 or ND14) and manually abrade. 

Aluminium and Alloys
Degrease with Cleaner Degreaser (Product Reference H30 or ND14) and manually abrade. 

The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below 5ºC during application or drying.

Application Conditions
Relative humidity should not exceed 80%. 
The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3ºC above the dew point.
Cold damp conditions will impair drying times and the final finish.
