APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions All surfaces must be clean and dry. The relative humidity of the air should not exceed 80% during application and drying.

When using hardener 008 5611: the temperature of the ambient air and the substrate should be minimum +0°C and at least 3°C above the dew point of the air during application and drying.

When using hardener 008 5613: the temperature of the ambient air and the substrate should be minimum -5⁰C and at least 3°C above the dew point of the air during application and drying.

The temperature of the paint itself should be above +15°C during mixing and application.
Good ventilation and sufficient air movement 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.

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.

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 Temacoat Primer, Temazinc 77 and Temazinc 99.
Finishing Temacoat GPL, Temacoat GS 50, Temacoat GPL-S MIO,
Temadur and Temathane.
Painting By airless spray or brush. At spray application the paint may be thinned 0–10% by volume when needed. 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.
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 280 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 10% by volume) is 325 g/l.
Only for industrial and professional use.
