Temaprime EE

A fast-drying, one-component anti-corrosive special primer for e.g. storage tank exteriors, agricultural machinery and etc.

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

Excellent adhesion to various surfaces

Temaprime EE has an excellent adhesion to various subsrates as steel, aluminium and zinc surfaces. The paint dries fast and can be used during assemble.

Very good anti-corrosive properties

Temaprime EE contains anti-corrosive pigments and can be apply without topcoat in dry indoor areas.

Good primer for galvanized roofs 

Temaprime EE is used for galvanized roofs as a primer of system with alkyd topcoat.

Temaprimer EE is mostly used for

Paint and coating systems for metal industries


Temaprime EE - Special primer

Temaprime EE
DESCRIPTION A fast-drying, one-component anti-corrosive special primer.
PRODUCT FEATURES Primer for steel, aluminium and zinc surfaces. Can also be used without any topcoat for steel surfaces in dry indoor areas.
Recommended uses Recommended uses: interior and exterior surfaces of ships above waterline, storage tank exteriors, agricultural machinery and other surfaces where especially good adhesion and anticorrosive properties are required.

Features Minimum damage from burning, welding and flame cutting. Burnt paint can be easily removed by e.g. brushing. Excellent anti-corrosive properties.
Colour Range Reddish brown (TVT 4000) and grey (TVT 4001). TEMASPEED tinting.

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 temperature of the substrate 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.

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 FONTECLEAN ZN detergent.

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 FONTECLEAN AL 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)
