Temaprime EUR - Alkyd primer

Temaprime EUR
DESCRIPTION A fast-drying, one-component anti-corrosive alkyd primer.
PRODUCT FEATURES Primer in alkyd systems for steel surfaces exposed to weathering. Ideal for use in assembling plants and painting stations with rapid production cycles. Can also be used without any topcoat for steel surfaces in dry indoor areas.
The product has MED (Marine Equipment Directive) certificate no VTT-C-11500-15-16 and is thus accepted for painting surfaces inside the ships.
Recommended uses Recommended for steel structures, agricultural, construction and other machinery.

Colour Range Reddish brown (TVT 4000) and grey (TVT 4001). Temaspeed Premium tinting.
Gloss groups Matt
Building material emission class MED

Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below +5 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 at least to grade Sa2. Clean small damages by tool cleaning to St2. (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)
Painting By airless spray or by brush. Mix the paint thoroughly before use. The paint can be thinned 0 - 15 % at airless spray application. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011" - 0.015" and nozzle pressure 120 - 180 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1006.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 440 g/litre of paint.
Maximum VOC content in ready to use paint (thinned 15 % by volume) is 495 g/l.
