PRODUCT DATA SHEET
Temacoat RM 40 - Epoxy paint
|DESCRIPTION||A two-component, resin-modified epoxy paint.|
|PRODUCT FEATURES||Used as a primer or finish for interior and exterior steel, aluminium and zinc surfaces exposed to mechanical and/or chemical stress - also for underground and underwater structures. Also suitable to be used as a single-coat system.
|Recommended uses||Recommended for building frameworks, tubular bridges, conveyors, ship hulls and other steelwork and equipment. Due to CE marking also suitable for concrete surfaces.|
|Features||Excellent resistance to abrasion, chemicals and water immersion.|
|Colour Cards||RAL, NCS, SSG, BS, MONICOLOR NOVA and SYMPHONY colour cards. Temaspeed tinting.|
Practical coverage depends on the application method, painting conditions and the shape and roughness of the surface to be coated.
|Mixing ratio||Base 4 parts by volume 161-series
Hardener 1 part by volume 008 5600 or 008 5605 (fast)
|Application method||By airless spray or brush.|
|Pot-life (+23°C)||8 hours with Hardener 008 5600
4 hours with Hardener 008 5605
Drying and recoating times are related to the film thickness, temperature, the relative humidity of the air and ventilation.
|Solids volume||65 ± 2 volume % (ISO 3233)
77 ± 2 weight %
|Density||1.2 - 1.3 kg / l (mixed).|
|Application conditions||All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air and surface should not fall below +5ºC during application and drying. Relative humidity should not exceed
80%. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3ºC above the dew point.
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.
Hot dip galvanized surfaces are recommended to be painted with a mist coat (paint thinned 25 - 30 %) before the actual priming.
Aluminium surfaces: Sweep blast clean with none-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.
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)
Concrete surfaces: The surface must dry and at least 4 weeks old. The relative humidity of the concrete should not exceed 97%. Remove any splashes and unevennesses by grinding. Remove laitance and form oil from concrete castings by sanding or blast cleaning. Any cracks, crevices and voids must be repaired with a mixture of Temafloor 200 and fine dry quartz sand.
Application: 2–3 x Temacoat RM 40
|Priming||Temacoat RM 40, Temacoat GPL-S Primer, Temacoat GPL-S MIO, Temacoat SPA, Temabond, Temasil 90, Temazinc 77 and Temazinc 99.|
|Finishing||Temacoat RM 40, Temadur and Temathane.|
|Painting||By airless spray or brush (small areas). At spray application the paint can be thinned
0–20%. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.015"–0.021" and nozzle pressure 120–180 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.
At brush application the paint should be thinned according to the circumstancies.
|Cleaning of tools||Thinner 006 1031.|
|EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value||The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 330 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 20 % by) volume is 430 g/l.
Only for industrial and professional use.
