Anticora EZP 500 : Epoxy Zinc Phosphate Primer  


Product Description :


Anticora EZP 500 is a two-component high solid primer with lead free rust inhibitive pigmentation.

Features and Benefits :

Easy to apply and can be applied via airless spray, conventional spray, brush or roller.

Ideal for use as a field primer on interior and exterior steel as part of a system to be topcoated with chlorinated rubber, epoxy and polyurethane topcoats.

A rust inhibitive primer over iron and steel and protects steel from atmospheric corrosion.

Provides much higher degree of protection than conventional primers in severe corrosive conditions.

Excellent resistance to acids, alkalis, water, salts, oils, petroleum solvents.

Has very low water and water vapour permeability.

Has excellent adhesion, toughness, abrasion resistance and overall chemical and solvent resistance.

While inferior surface preparation can never be recommended, Anticora EZP 500 can tolerate, though with shorter life, power tool and hand cleaned steel surfaces.

Ideal for high humidity, moisture, marine atmospheres, heavy rains, high temperatures, damp conditions, very low dusty and fungus prone conditions.

Durable and economical.

  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. Apply one coat of Anticora EZP 500. It can be overcoated with Durapoxy 200 Epoxy Enamel, Anuthane Enamel Polyurethane or Monocoat Enamel Polyurethane, Anuchlor 555 LB Chlorinated Rubber Enamel.

Non-ferrous Metals - Remove dirt, dust, oil, old paint etc. Degrease the surface with degreasing solvents like xylene or tri-chloroethylene. Apply one coat of Anuprime - 291 Wash Primer for obtaining maximum adhesion. Apply one or two coats of Anticora EZP 500.

Notes :-  
Brushes and spray equipments should be cleaned with Anusol - ETP Epoxy Thinner.
The contents should be stirred thoroughly prior to use.

After mixing Base and Hardener in recommended proportions, allow for 30 minutes induction period or sweat-in-time (maturing) before application.

When overcoating the weathered or aged Anticora EZP 500, ensure that the coating is fully free from all contamination such as oil, dust, grease, stains etc.

This coating should always be thinned with Anusol - ETP Epoxy Thinner. The use of alternative thinners can severely inhibit the curing mechanism of the coating.
