Duracoat - 6000 is a two-component high solid epoxy coating designed to provide excellent protection in demanding environments and is especially suited as a tank coating in petroleum products industry.
Features and Benefits:
Easy to apply and can be applied via airless spray, conventional spray, brush or roller.
Excellent resistance to corrosion, erosion, abrasion, chemical attack and other destructive conditions.
High build coating that provides desired film build up to 100 microns in a single coat without sagging for economical application.
Serves as single protective coat that results in fewer labour stops, less down time and lower application costs. (Topcoats are recommended for maximum protection.)
Provides excellent resistance to dilute acids, alkalis, crude oil, diesel fuel, kerosene, gasoline, jet fuel, salt water, and water.
Can be applied over metal and concrete surfaces.
Noted for its excellent adhesion, toughness, abrasion resistance and overall chemical and solvent resistance.
Has very low water and water vapour permeability.
Suitable for varied end applications i.e. ideal for heavy industrial, chemical, marine, splash and spillage, fresh water, sea water and chemical immersion.
Can tolerate high humidity or surface dampness during application.
Resists bacterial attack.
Exhibit long-term protection and is cost-effective.

** Specific exposure environments may affect some colours.
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 Epoxy Zinc Phosphate Primer. Then apply one or two coats Duracoat 6000. It can be overcoated with Durapoxy 200 Epoxy Enamel, Anuthane Enamel Polyurethane or Monocoat Enamel Polyurethane.
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 Primerfor obtaining maximum adhesion. Apply one coat of Anticora EZP 500 followed by one or two coats of Duracoat 6000.
Concrete:Concrete surfaces should be grey or grey-white color and free from pits, pockets and holes. Prepare the surface with abrasive blasting or power tools. Surface imperfections should be filled in with DURAPATCH. No cement dust or sand should be dislodged. In absence of blasting, etch the surface with 10-15% muriatic acid diluted in water. Allow this acid solution to remain on the surface for 10-15 minutes or until the bubbling stops. Thoroughly rinse the floor with water to remove all traces of acid. Allow the floor to dry completely before painting.
Concrete surface requiring a primer should be primed with this coating reduced 33% with Anusol - ETP Epoxy Thinner for assuring maximum penetration of the coating into the concrete and a better bond of coating system to the substrate. After the initial coat has dried for 24 hours, apply 2-3 full coats of the same unreduced coating.

Flammable. Keep away from heat and open flame. Maintain good ventilation and avoid breathing vapours.
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 Duracoat - 6000, 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.
