Temacoat GPL-S Primer
|DESCRIPTION||A two-component, polyamide-cured high-build epoxy primer containing zinc phosphate.|
Used as a primer
or an intermediate coat in epoxy and polyurethane systems exposed to abrasion
and/or chemical stress. Can be used as an
intermediate coat on zinc-rich epoxy and zinc silicate paints.
|Recommended uses||Recommended for bridges, haulage equipment, cranes, steel masts, conveyors and other steelwork, machinery and equipment.|
|Features||Excellent adhesion to steel, zinc and aluminium surfaces. Rapidly recoatable.
The product has MED (Marine Equipment Directive) certificate no
VTT-C-11166-15-14 and is thus accepted for painting surfaces inside the ships.
Hardener 008 5610 enables curing even at temperatures down to -10°C.
|Colour Cards||Temaspeed Primers colour card. TEMASPEED tinting. With hardener 008 5610 colours might slightly differ from colour standards when tinted.|
Practical coverage depends on the application method, painting conditions and the shape and roughness of the surface to be coated.

|Application conditions||With hardener 008 5600 or 008 5605:
All surfaces must be clean and dry and free from contamination. During application and drying the temperature of the substrate should be minimum 0°C and relative humidity of the air should not exceed 80%. The surface temperature of the steel should be at least 3°C above the dew point.
The product should not be applied at temperatures below 0°C where there is a possibility of ice formation on the substrate. The temperature of paint itself should be above +15°C for proper application. Good ventilation is required in confined areas during application and drying.
With hardener 008 5610:
All surfaces must be clean and dry and free from contamination. The temperature of the substrate should not fall below -10°C during application and drying. The surface temperature of steel should remain at least 3°C above the dew point. Care has to be taken that there is no ice on the substrate.
The temperature of paint itself should be above +15°C for proper application.
Good ventilation is required in confined areas during application and drying.
Note! There is a natural tendency of epoxy coatings to chalk and discolor on exterior exposure
|Preparation||Oil, grease, salts and dirt are removed by appropriate means. (ISO 12944-4)
Steel surfaces: Blast clean to grade Sa2½. (ISO 8501-1) If blast cleaning is not possible, phosphating is recommended for cold rolled steel to improve adhesion.
Zinc surfaces: Sweep blast clean with mineral abrasives, e.g. quartz sand, to an even roughness. (SaS, SFS 5873) If sweep blasting is not possible, the surface should be roughened by hand abrading or washed with PANSSARIPESU detergent.
See Pretreatment of hot dip galvanized surfaces.
Aluminium surfaces: Sweep blast clean with non-metallic abrasives to an even roughness. (SaS, SFS 5873) If sweep blasting is not possible, the surface should be roughened by hand abrading or washed with MAALIPESU detergent.
Stainless steel: Roughen the surface by grinding or sweep blasting using non-metallic abrasives.
Primed surfaces: Oil, grease, salt and dirt are removed from the surface by appropriate means. Repair any damage to the primer coat. Note the overcoating time of primer. (ISO 12944-4)
Note! Hardener 008 5610 is to be used only in steel or primed surfaces.
|Priming||Temacoat GPL-S Primer, Temabond, Temazinc 77, Temazinc 99 and Temasil 90.|
|Finishing||Temacoat GPL, Temacoat GS 50, Temacoat RM 40, Temacoat SPA 50, Temadur, Temathane, Fontecoat EP 50 and Fontecoat EP 80.|
|Painting||By airless spray or by brush. At airless spray application the paint should be thinned
0–15% by volume. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011"–0.017" and nozzle pressure
120–160 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.
Use brush application only for stripe coating. At brush application the paint should be thinned according to the circumstances.
|Mixing of components||First stir base and hardener separately. The correct proportions of base and hardener must be mixed thoroughly before use. Use power mixer for mixing.|
|Cleaning of tools||Thinner 1031.|
|EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value||The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 425 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 15% by volume) is 485 g/l.
