epoxy based paints

epocoat – sf

EPOCOAT SF is a two component solvent-free epoxy coating system consisting of an epoxy resin and amine hardener that gives a glossy finish with anti-bacterial component.

EPOCOAT SF is specially formulated to give superior adhesion, abrasion resistant and excellent heavy-duty coating both on steel and concrete such as breweries, textile mills, distilleries, tanks (non-potable water) and other food processing and manufacturing industries.

Solvent free-low odour.

High chemical resistance.

Hard wearing.

Easy to clean-seamless.

Flexible and waterproof.

Available in wide range of colour.

Steel should be degreased with suitable degreasing solvent and then grit blasted to SS Sa 2½ grit blasting is much preferred to wire brushing or other methods of abrasion. Immediately after blasting the surface should be coated with EPOCOAT SF.

New concrete should be cured for at least 28 days. Apply one (1) coat of multi etch solution, rinse and let it dry. Remove all loose debris prior to the application of EPOCOAT SF.

Remove all traces of oil, grease and other contaminants with suitable degreaser and detergent. Remove all rust and loose materials by power tool cleaning or by wire brushing. Application of wash primer to damaged or rusted surface is recommended prior to the application of EPOCOAT SF.

Mixing and Application:
Stir well each container particularly resin base using a flat paddle.
Mix thoroughly 3 parts of Resin A to 1 part of Hardener until homogenous. Do not add solvents of thinner.
Mechanical mixing using power drill with low RPM is much preferred to ensure a homogenous solution.
EPOCOAT SF can be suitably applied by brush or roller at a minimum thickness of 150 – 200 microns. The first coat should be firmly applied and scrubbed well into the surface, ensuring that a continuous film results of uniform thickness.
The second coat will cover more readily than the first and should be applied within the over coating intervals mentioned.
Faster rate of application can be achieved by using airless spray gun.

Coverage above-mentioned are theoretical, and based upon plain application to a properly prepared surface. Since application conditions vary greatly on the substrate porosity, quality of surface preparation, thickness and wastage factors.
