FERREX AQUA

Anticorrosive paint

  • Corrosion protective
  • Special adhesion
  • Water-borne

FERREX AQUA is a water-borne anticorrosive pigmented and corrosion inhibiting anticorrosive paint and adhesion primer. Finish: semimatt. The product has been classified to Group M1 in Emission Classification of building materials.

Anticorrosive paint and adhesion primer for iron and steel surfaces as well as aluminium outdoors and indoors. The adhesion of FERREX AQUA on zinc-coated (galvanized) surfaces as well as on prefabrication primers is also excellent.

The pigmentation of FERREX AQUA effectively prevents underfilm corrosion. FERREX AQUA can be overcoated with nearly all Teknos water- and solvent-borne paints for sheet-iron roofs, furniture and houses. FERREX AQUA has moderate weather resistance and it can also be left without a top coat.

Technical data sheet

Surface preparation

Surfaces to be painted are cleaned from dirt, grease, oil and other impurities. RENSA STEEL washing agent, solvent wiping etc. is used for cleaning. Rust and corrosion are removed from the surfaces using scraping, wire-brushing, sanding, blast-cleaning or other suitable method. Old, glossy surfaces are roughened using sanding, blast-cleaning or other suitable method. Loose and poorly adherent old paint or coating is removed. Aluminium surfaces are roughened using sanding, blast-cleaning ot other suitable method.

Application

Before use stir the paint thoroughly. Apply by brush or spray. Recommended nozzle size for airless spray is 0.011 - 0.015''. Suitable top coats: Water-borne outdoor paints, e.g. KIRJO AQUA paint for sheet-iron roofs, NORDICA EKO house paint, VISA opaque wood stain, SILOKSAN FACADE silicone emulsion paint, SILOKSAN ANTI-CARB protective paint. Solvent-borne outdoor paints, e.g. KIRJO paint for sheet-iron roofs, WINTOL oil paint. Furniture paints: paints from FUTURA AQUA and FUTURA series. Water-borne interior paints, e.g. paints from EKORA, TEKNOSPRO and TIMANTTI series and TEKNOFLOOR AQUA floor paint. Solvent-borne interior paints, e.g. TEKNOFLOOR floor paint.

Application conditions

The surface to be painted must be dry. During the application and drying period (note also the temperature of the night following the painting) the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +10°C and the relative air humidity below 80%. If the temperature of the surface to be painted exceeds +40°C, the application properties and the adhesion of the paint may deteriorate.
