Temabond ST 300

A two-component high-solids, modified epoxy tintable paint. As a surface-tolerant epoxy, Temabond ST 300 is the first choice especially for surfaces where the complete removal of rust by blast cleaning is impracticable (St2).

The paint is solvent-borneTool: sprayTool: brush
The coverage of the paint on rough surfaces
The coverage of the paint on smooth surfaces

Surface-tolerant high-solids epoxy paint

An ideal solution for maintenance painting due to very good adhesion to blast cleaned or hand prepared steel. Mastic paint with high film-build properties, also by brush.
Low solvent emission compare to traditional epoxy paints.

Good chemical and abrasion resistance

Temabond ST 300 forms a very tight coat with good chemical and abrasion resistance. Paint is used as a primer for steel surfaces difficult to clean in process and chemical industry. Also suitable for water immersion.

Functional mechanism of Temabond ST 300

Temabond ST 300 mastic paint has the ability to penetrate rust and adhere to the underlying steel surface, effectively preventing further corrosion.

Temabond ST 300 is widely used for

Paint and coating systems for metal industries


Temabond ST 300 - High-solids epoxy paint

Temabond ST300
DESCRIPTION A two-component high-solids, 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. Recommended for repairing of damages caused by transport or installation. Can also be applied on old alkyd paint surfaces. Can be used as a single coat paint.
Recommended uses Steel surfaces.

Features Forms a 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 TEMASPEED tinting.
Gloss groups 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.

Painting By airless spray or brush. Depending on the temperature of the components the paint can be thinned 0 - 10 %. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.013" - 0.019" 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 1031.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 195 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 10 % by volume) is 260 g/l.
