Temabond ST 200 - High-solids epoxy paint

Temabond ST200
DESCRIPTION A two-component high-solids, aluminium pigmented modified epoxy paint.
PRODUCT FEATURES Especially used as a primer for steel surfaces difficult to clean in process and chemical industry and in water immersion. Can also be applied on old alkyd paint surfaces. Can be used as a single coat paint.
Winter grade version Temabond WG 200 can be cured at lower temperatures.

Recommended uses Recommended for repainting and touch-up painting of bridges, cisterns and different types of steelwork and equipment in wood-processing and chemical industry, such as paper machines, conveyors, tubular bridges etc. Also recommended for repairing of damages caused by transport or installation.

Features Due to the aluminium pigmentation forms a very tight coat with good chemical and abrasion resistance.
High film build properties, also by brush.
Very good adhesion to blast cleaned or hand prepared steel.
Low solvent content, lower solvent emissions than with traditional epoxy paints.
Colour Range Aluminium (Temaspeed tinting for reddish aluminium). The colour will change in outdoor use.
Gloss groups Semi-gloss

Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below +10 ºC during application and 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: Remove rust by tool cleaning to minimum St2 or blast clean to Sa2 or Sa2½. Blast clean to grade Sa2½ for immersion. (ISO 8501-1)

Earlier painted surfaces: Roughen old paint surfaces using e.g. abrasive wheel, sand paper or blast cleaning.

Finishing Temacoat GPL, Temacoat GPL-S MIO, Temacoat GPL-S Primer, Temacoat GS 50, Temacoat RM 40, Temabond ST 300, Temadur, Temathane and Temacryl EA.
Painting For airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 0–10%. Recommended nozzle tip is 0.013"–0.019" and pressure 140–180 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

For brush application the product 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 power mixer for mixing. Insufficient mixing or incorrect mixing ratio will result in uneven drying of the surface and weaken the properties of the coating.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 006 1031.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 200 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of paint mixture (thinned 10 % by volume) is 260 g/l.
