Epoxy Tank Coating
- Corrosion protective
- Special adhesion
- Water resistant
- DTM (direct-to-metal)
Modified epoxy paint, thixotropic, low solvent content, cured with amines.
For protection of inside linings of potable and industrial water tanks. High gloss, hard coating with good adhesion to surfaces and resistant to mechanical factors. Coatings resistant to water, wine, beer, fruit juices, must, fat and edible oils. Coating resistant to methyl isobutyl ketone, xylene, citric acid, diluted and concentrated alkali solutions, demi water and vegetable oil.
Technical data sheet
Before cleaning of surface, it is recommended to wash it with water with addition of OLICLEAN 123 and then rinse with fresh water. STEEL SURFACES: The surface to be treated must be dry, salt-, grease- and dust-free, cleaned to the degree of cleanliness according to ISO 8501-1 at least Sa 3. Prepared surface roughness should be Rz at 60-100 microns. 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. Apply by airless spray or brush (only for small surfaces). When using a brush it may be necessary to dilute paint (3% of TEKNOSOLV 6060) and apply several layers to achieve recommended coating thickness. Airless spray parameter: Nozzle size 0.53 - 0.68 mm Nozzle pressure 20 - 30 MPa Depending on application and type of construction, other thickness of a single layer can be assumed instead of recommended. Typical dry film thickness range using airless spray is from 200 to 300 µm. Changing the thickness of the coating changes the theoretical consumption, thickness, weight of dry coating, drying time, time of recoating and finishing work. Before usage for edible products, tank should be cleaned according to sanitary certificate.
During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the product shall be above +10°C and the relative air humidity below 80%. Additionally, the temperature of the surface to be treated and the product must be at least +3°C above the dew point of the ambient air. Adequate ventilation during application and drying period is recommended.
The storage stability is shown on the label. Store in a cool place and in tightly closed containers.
