Fontecryl SC 50

A water-borne, one-component fast-drying alkyd modified acrylic paint which contains active anti-corrosive pigments. It is mainly developed for painting of machinery and equipment.

The paint is water-borneTool: spray
The coverage of the paint on rough surfaces
The coverage of the paint on smooth surfaces

Tough semi-gloss surface

Fontecryl SC 50 forms a very tough surface with good anti-corrosive properties. The wide range of colors is a big advantage for machinery and equipment producers.

High film-building properties

Especially used as a single-coat paint system for different steel structures. Can be applied up to 200µm wet film thickness.

Fontecryl SC 50 is mostly used for

Paint and coating systems for metal industries


Fontecryl SC 50 - Water-borne acrylic paint

Fontecryl SC50
DESCRIPTION A water-borne, one-component fast-drying alkyd modified acrylic paint which contains active anti-corrosive pigments.

Suitable for product painting in metal industry and painting stations. Recommended especially as a single coat paint system for steel structures indoors and outdoors. Drying times can be shortened by using higher temperatures.

Recommended uses Typical uses are e.g. steel frameworks, machinery and equipment.

Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below +15ºC during application or drying. Relative humidity should be between
20 - 70%. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3ºC above the dew point.
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.

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)
