Anuchlor - MIO : Chlorinated Rubber Micaceous Iron Oxide
Product Description :
Anuchlor - MIO is a high performance high build chlorinated rubber based coating pigmented with micaceous iron oxide (MIO) pigment. MIO is a lamellar plate-like pigment that forms a thick lustrous layer after application. As the coating dries, the very thin platelet shaped pigment particles orient themselves parallel to the substrate to give an armoured effect to the film and also act as an impediment to the diffusion of oxygen and moisture through the film. It is ideal for use in marine and chemical environments.
Features and Benefits:
Easy to apply and can be applied via airless spray, conventional spray and brush.
Can be used as primer, intermediate or finish coat.
Renders hard, inert film showing excellent resistance towards dilute acids, alkalis, certain salts, oxidizing agents, aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, mineral oils, greases etc.
Has very high resistance to permeability of water, moisture, oxygen and other atmospheric pollutants.
Suitable for varied end applications i.e. ideal for high humidity, moisture, marine atmospheres, heavy rains, high temperatures, damp conditions, very dusty and fungus prone conditions.
Impart excellent inter-coat adhesion properties.
Extremely durable and weather resistant.
Non-toxic and cost-effective.
Recommended uses :
Concrete Storage Tanks
Water Treatment Plants
Bleacheries and laundries
Pulp and Paper Mills
Marine and shore installations
Food Processing Plants
Areas of excessive moisture
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. It means that at least 95% of any given square inch has the appearance of white metal and the remainder is limited to slight discolourations. Blast cleaning to SSPC-SP 5-63 or NACE No. 1 is recommended where heavy corrosive conditions exist. 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 or two coats of Anuchlor CZP 500 primer. Then apply a coat of Anuchlor - MIO followed by 2-3 coats of Anuchlor 555 LB Chlorinated Rubber Enamel.
Flammable. Keep away from heat and open flame. Maintain good ventilation and avoid breathing vapours.
Product Limitation :
Anuchlor - MIOis not resistant to most solvents, animal and vegetable oils and fats common in dairies, packinghouses and sewage treatment facilities.
Do not use on floors.
Epoxy and polyurethane topcoats are not suitable.
Brushes and spray equipments should be cleaned with Anusol - CRT Thinner.
The contents should be stirred thoroughly prior to use.
When overcoating the weathered or aged Anuchlor - MIO, 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 - CRT Thinner. The use of alternative thinners can severely inhibit the curing mechanism of the coating.
