EP – 1 & EP - 1: Solvent free epoxy coating 

 
Solvent-Free Epoxy Coating System

 

Product Description :

 

EP-1 & EP-2 coating system is 100% solids, two-component high build, heavy-duty epoxy protective coating designed to combat corrosion, erosion, abrasion, chemical attacks, and other destructive conditions.

 
Features and Benefits :
   
Eliminates solvent hazards and ventilation problems.
High build coatings that result in fewer labour stops, less down time and lower application costs.
Produce thick non-porous and highly resistant film as compared to conventional solvent-borne coatings that produce thin films with inherent porosity.
Excellent resistant to dilute acids, alkalis and certain solvents.
Have excellent adhesion, toughness, abrasion resistance and overall chemical resistance.

Excellent impact and mar resistant.

High adhesive strength and mechanical properties.

Excellent adhesive characteristics ensure a tight bond to most cleaned sound surfaces.

Excellent long-term protection with longer maintenance-free life.

  Surface Preparation :  
     
 

Steel - The surface should be blast cleaned to SSPC-SP 10-63T or NACE No. 2 i.e. loose rust and scales, dirt, grease, oil, paint, wax, weak oxide films and other contaminants should be removed. Blast cleaning to SSPC-SP 5-63 or NACE No. 1 is recommended where heavy corrosive conditions exist or coating is required to be immersed. That means a surface with a grey metallic colour, slightly roughened to form a suitable anchor pattern for coatings. This surface is free of all oil, grease, dirt, mill scale, rust, corrosion products, oxides, paint and other foreign matter. In absence of blast cleaning, prepare the metal surface by wire brushing, sanding, grinding, scrapping or chipping with hand or power tools. Remove all the contaminants.

Clean - Up :

 
     
 

Clean-up hands, tools, gloves etc. immediately with ANUSOL - ETP Epoxy Thinner.

 
     
  Caution :  
     
 

The job sites should be ventilated. The liquids may cause skin or eye irritation. Avoid direct contact with skin. Rub hands and face with a protective skin ointment. Before longer break periods and after completion of work, give the body careful washing. Rinse splashes from the eyes with plenty of water and borax solution. Wear protective clothing such as gloves, safety goggles and apron when mixing and applying Chemoguard. Keep away from reach of children and persons not trained in its use and not aware of the potential hazards involved. All components of this system are intended for use by professionals only.

 
     
  Product Limitations :  
     
 

EP-1 & EP-2 coatings tend to change colour after few days if exposed to direct sunlight, certain gases and vapours and certain chemicals. It should be noted, however, chemical resistance and other properties of the coatings are not affected at all by discolouration.

 
     
 
Notes :-  
 
     
 
Brushes and spray equipments should be cleaned with Anusol - ETP Epoxy Thinner.
The contents should be stirred thoroughly prior to use.
When overcoating the weathered or aged Chemoguard, ensure that the coating is fully free from all contamination such as oil, dust, grease, stains etc. The coating should be made dull with kitchen knife etc.
