Temanyl PVB

A one-component, polyvinyl-butyral adhesion primer for various surfaces.

The paint is solvent-borne

Very fast-drying primer

Temanyl PVB is an adhesion fast-drying primer for steel, zinc, stainless steel and aluminium surfaces. A primer can be applied with a "wet-on-wet" painting technique.

Overcoatable with wide range of topcoats

Temanyl PVB can be overcoated with different types of topcoat, can be also used under powder coating.

Drying and recoating times are related to the film thickness, temperature, the relative humidity of the air and ventilation.

Solids volume 23 ± 2 %
Density 1.1 - 1.2 kg / l depending on the colour.
Product code 007 4485, 007 4486 and 007 4488.

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 to grade Sa2½. (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 PANSSARIPESU detergent.

Stainless steel: Roughen the surface by grinding or sweep blasting using mineral abrasives.

Aluminium surfaces: Sweep blast clean with non-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 MAALIPESU detergent.
Painting By airless or conventional spray or dip. The application viscosity should be 20 s DIN 4. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011"- 0.013 " and nozzle pressure 120 - 160 bar.

Note! When stoving Temanyl PVB before overcoating the temperature must not exceed 160 ºC because the intercoat adhesion may then deteriorate.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1031.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 690 g/litre of paint.
VOC content of the paint (thinned 30 % by volume) is 740 g/l.
