Temacoat GPL - Epoxy finish

Temacoat GPL
DESCRIPTION A two-component, amine-adduct cured epoxy finish.

Used especially as a finishing coat in epoxy systems exposed to heavy abrasion and/or chemical stress. Due to CE marking also suitable for concrete surfaces.

Recommended uses Recommended for bridges, tanks and different types of steelwork and equipment in the wood processing and chemical industries, such as tubular bridges, conveyors, paper machines etc.

Features Withstands +150 ºC dry heat and +60 ºC in immersion. Withstands immersion in dilute solutions of non-oxidizing acids, alkalis and salts. Resists only temporary splashes of oxidizing acids and bleaching solutions. Withstands chemically active gases and dust. Withstands immersion in mineral/vegetable/animal fats and oils.

Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint 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 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 be 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.
Priming Temacoat GPL-S Primer, Temacoat GPL-S MIO, Temacoat SPA and Temabond.
Finishing Temacoat GPL.
Painting By airless spray or brush. If necessary can be thinned 0–10 % for spray application. 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.
At brush application the paint can 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 mechanical mixer for mixing.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 006 1031.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 455 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 10 % by volume) is 495 g/l.
