EMAPUR P is a two-pack, gloss polyurethane top coat. The hardener is an aliphatic isocyanate resin.

Intended for final painting of areas of ships above the waterline, construction operating in industrial and heavy duty environment, bridges constructions. It is also suitable for anticorrosive systems for road and rail transport vehicles. High decorative, gloss coating, good adhesive to substrate, tough and flexible. Resistant to weathering, sun radiation, sanitary, fresh and sea water, salt and alkali solutions, diluted acid solutions, oil, fuel oil, diesel and some thinners (gasoline, xylene). Coating in white colors shows a reflectivity of solar radiation above 70%.

Surface preparation

Remove from the surfaces any contaminants that might be detrimental to surface preparation and application. Remove also water-soluble salts by using appropriate methods. The surfaces are prepared according to the different materials as follows: OLD PAINTED SURFACES SUITABLE FOR OVERCOATING: Any impurities that might be detrimental to the application of paint (e.g. grease and salts) are removed. The surfaces must be dry and clean. Old, painted surfaces that have exceeded the maximum overcoating time are to be roughened as well. Damaged parts are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the substrate and the maintenance coating. The place and time of the preparation are to be chosen so that the prepared surface will not get dirty or damp before the subsequent treatment. Additional instructive information for surface preparation can be found in standards EN ISO 12944-4 and ISO 8501-2.


Take into consideration the pot life of the mixture when estimating the amount to be mixed at a time. Before application the base and hardener are mixed in right proportion. Stir thoroughly down to the bottom of the vessel. Inadequate stirring or incorrect mixing ratio results in imperfect curing and impaired film properties. Stir thoroughly before use. Apply by airless spray, brush, roller or conventional spray. Suitable airless nozzle size 0.011 - 0.013". For air spray application it is recommended to thin the paint to 18-23 seconds according to Ford cup Ø4. Before use clean the spray gun and mixing vessels with a thinner TEKNOSOLV 9521 or TEKNOSOLV 433. If a coating with better scratch resistance is needed, instead of the standard hardener EMAPUR UTWARDZACZ, use TEKNODUR HARDENER 7332-01 in the same mixing ratio. Using this hardener will not change the pot life and the drying properties of the coating. Do not use universal thinners, since they may contain alcohol which will react with the hardener.

Application conditions

The surface to be treated must be dry and the relative air humidity below 80%. Minimum surface temperature -5°C (surface frost- and ice-free) and at least 3°C higher than dew point during the application and drying period. Adequate ventilation during application and drying period is recommended.


The storage stability is shown on the label. Store indoors in a cool and dry place and in a tightly closed can. The hardener reacts with air humidity and therefore the can is to be kept carefully closed. Use opened hardener within two weeks.

Safety markings See safety data sheet. The hardener of the product and the ready mixture contain isocyanates. In poorly ventilated areas and especially when using spray application we recommend the use of a fresh air mask. In short or temporary work, a mask with combined filter A2-P2 can be used. In this case eyes and face are to be protected. The hardener can must be opened with caution, as pressure may develop in the can during storage.
