Duasolid 50

A two-component oxirane ester paint containing active anti-corrosive pigments. Good solution for earth moving machines, haulage and lifting equipment, forklifts, agricultural machinery, etc.

The paint is solvent-borne
The coverage of the paint on rough surfaces
The coverage of the paint on smooth surfaces

High solids single-coat product

Can be used as a single-coat or a topcoat on steel surfaces exposed to abrasion and chemicals in severe climatic conditions. Paint has high film build properties up to 100 µm/one coat.

Good corrosion resistance

Durable surfaces painted with Duasolid 50 have good corrosion resistance due to anti-corrosive pigments.

Duasolid 50 is mostly used for

Paint and coating systems for metal industries

Duasolid 50 - Oxirane-ester paint

Duasolid 50
DESCRIPTION A two-component oxirane-ester paint containing active anti-corrosive pigments.
PRODUCT FEATURES Used as a single coat or as a topcoat in oxirane ester based systems on steel surfaces exposed to abrasion and chemicals in severe climatic conditions.
Recommended uses Suitable for earth moving machines, haulage and lifting equipment, forklifts, agricultural machinery, electric appliances, pumps and other steel structures, equipment and machinery.

Features Excellent durability. Environmentally more friendly and for users more safe alternative than epoxy and polyurethane paints. High volume solids. High film build properties, up to 100 µm / one coat.
Colour Cards RAL, NCS, SSG, BS, MONICOLOR NOVA and SYMPHONY colour cards. TEMASPEED tinting. Gloss varies depending on the used hardener. See application.

Product code 527-series

Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint itself should not fall below +10 ºC during application or drying. Relative humidity should not exceed 80 %. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3 ºC above the dew point.
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.

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)
Priming Duasolid Primer and Duasolid 50.
Finishing Duasolid 50.
Painting By airless, conventional or electrostatic spray. At airless spray application the paint can be thinned if necessary to a viscosity of 30–60 s DIN 4. Airless spray nozzle tip
"0.011–0.015", pressure ratio at least 30:1 and nozzle pressure 120–180 bar.
At conventional spray application the viscosity should be 20–40 s DIN 4 and at electrostatic spraying 20–40 s DIN 4.

Properties and gloss of DUASOLID 50 will vary according to the used hardener:

Hardener 008 7675 gloss abt. > 70 mixing ratio 2:1
Hardener 008 7665 gloss abt. 60 mixing ratio 2:1
Hardener 008 7667 gloss abt. 10 mixing ratio 2:1
Hardener 008 7672 gloss abt. 40 mixing ratio 2:1
Hardener 008 7668 gloss abt. < 10 mixing ratio 2:1

Avoid hot spray!
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. The correct proportions of base and hardener must be mixed thoroughly before use. Use Temaspeed Squirrel Mixer for mixing.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1048 or Thinner 1112.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 320 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 15 % by volume) is 399 g/l.
