High build acrylic vinyl/micaceous iron oxide

High-build coating for protection of steel and galvanised steel in aggressive environments. Typical applications include lighting columns and general industrial plant.

Colours available: Full range to special order
Appearance Of Dried Film: Matt specular finish
Volume Solids: 40%
Dry Film Thickness: Typical: 75 microns
Theoretical Coverage: 5.3m² per litre at 75 microns
Drying Time At 20°C:
Touch Dry: 1 hour
Film Dry: 3 hours
Overcoat: 3 hours
(will vary with temperature, air movements, etc.)
Packaging: 5 litre containers
Shelf Life: 12 months in unopened containers when stored under cover in good storage conditions.
Storage: Under cover with temperature range of 5°C to 32°C.
Surface Preparation: Mild steel, clean and free of millscale: Thoroughly degrease using Dacrylate Thinner R5. Normally applied over Dacrylate range of Epidac 2 Zinc Phosphate primers.
Mild steel, corroded and/or millscale present: Abrasive blasting to ISO 8501-1 SA 2.5 is the preferred method.
Manual clean: Chip, scrape and power wire brush to remove all loose rust, millscale, etc. to ISO 8501-1, ST3. Degrease with Dacrylate Thinner R5. Normally applied over Dacrylate range of Epidac 2 Zinc Phosphate primers.
Galvanising (new): Ensure surface is cleaned and dry.
Note: Adhesion may be further improved on certain types of bright galvanising by the use of Mordant Solution.
Galvanising (weathered): Use stiff brush to remove any deposits of white zinc salts. Wash down with detergent water to remove road salts, etc., rinse and dry off. Degrease with Dacrylate Thinner R5 to remove any remaining oils, grease or other contaminants.
Application Conditions: Temperature: Minimum 5°C
Humidity: Less than 90% RH
Application: Brush: Apply using a 'full' wet brush. Avoid excessive 'brushing out. Do not 'lay-iff'. A wet film thickness of 190 microns will give a dry film thickness of 75 microns.
Roller: As for brush application, taking care to apply specified wet film thickness.
Spray: SB Acrylic Vinyl MIO can be applied using conventional, airless and HVLP spray methods. 5-10% of Dacrylate Thinner R5 may be required to give optimum spray characteristics.
N.B.: Certain products retain solvents for longer periods, which will affect plasticizers within the plastic packaging causing damage to the finish. It is therefore not recommended that finished painted products be wrapped in bubble wrap, plastic sleeves, etc., until coatings are fully cured as this can cause damage to the finish especially when stacked or stored in sunlight/elevated temperatures.
Damage can also occur from condensation caused by fluctuations in temperature consequently causing a 'greenhouse' effect within the packaging.
Clean-up: Dacrylate Thinner R5.
