Code: 5G1145

High-build epoxy satin coating for all types of surfaces. The advantage to build up a thickness of 100-150 dry microns per coat allows sensible reduction of labour costs. Overcoatable with chlorinated rubber, epoxy or polyurethane coatings for high quality long lasting anticorrosive coating systems. Provides outstanding chemical resistance in the marine environment, both in atmosphere or immersion conditions. Excellent as anti-osmosis pre-treatment on fibreglass boats.

SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION PROCEDURE

Steel. Sandblasting according to SA 2,5 is recommended. If sandblasting is not possible, the substrate should be cleaned perfectly, degreased, free from traces of corrosion and mechanically sanded. In case of pre-existing epoxy, polyurethane or zinc-based undercoats in good conditions overcoat with 1 coat of EPOFOND HB followed by 1-2 coats of POLIFOND Primer, allowing the required waiting time between coats. Overcoat then with the recommended topcoat.

Bare Galvanized Steel. The surface should be clean, dry and well degreased. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND HB as suggested.

Previously Painted Galvanized Steel. Remove any trace of corrosion by sanding. The surface should be clean, dry and well degreased. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND HB as suggested

Fibreglass. The surface should be dry, degreased and slightly sanded with fine abrasive paper. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND HB as suggested.

Cement. The surface should be clean, dry, well seasoned and free from loosing particles. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND HB as suggested.
