EPOXY ZINC RICH PRIMER Paints

A two pack epoxy-polyamide zinc dust, high performance primer coating containing 75% metal in the dry film. Contains sufficient metallic zinc to afford effective cathodic protection to steel.

Design Usage

  • Excellent resistance to fresh and salt water
  • Good solvent and chemical resistance
  • As a prefabrication primer, can be applied by automatic paint application equipment or by normal airless spray
  • Designed to give adequate protection for blast cleaned steel during fabrication, site storage and erection
  • Provides a hard wearing base coat for a variety of single pack and two pack products
  • Particularly recommended for steel pipelines, harbor and shore installations
  • Relative humidity should not exceed 85% and substrate temperature should be more than 3oC above Dew Point

  • Surface Preparation

    The life-span and performance of this coating is directly related to the degree of surface preparation

    •This product should be applied to steel surface that has been blast cleaned

    •Abrasive blast cleaning to a minimum standard of Sa 2.5 ‘Swedish Standard’ SIS 05 59 00,ISO 8501-1:1988, or second quality BS-4232: 1967

    •For high corrosive conditions, abrasive blast cleaning standard “Sa 3” or ‘First Quality’, should be achieved

    •Abrasive number not higher than S240 or G24 is recommended

    •Surface should be dry and free from contaminants

    •Steel which has been weathered for several months may retain significant amount of corrosion-

    stimulating salts after blasting and special care must be required for preparing such type of surfaces

    •Where necessary, remove weld spatter and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to a smooth surface

  • Product Use Restriction

    This product withstands continues dry heat up to 200oC (392F).

    This product will not be cured at a temperature below 5C.

    Curing will resume normally as the temperature rises above 5-10C (41-50F).
