ALLCOAT Chemical Resistant Coating Acid Strength is a rapid curing, two pack Epoxy coating with outstanding resistance to aggressive acids, solvents, petrochemicals and alcohols e.g. 96% Sulphuric acid, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Skydrol and Methanol.
Features & Benefits
- Outstanding chemical resistance
- Very rapid cure, even at low temperatures
- Excellent adhesion to steel and concrete
- Tough, durable and abrasion resistant
- Hygienic and easily cleaned
- Slip resistant options
As an internal lining for concrete or steel storage tanks; Chemical bunds; Chemical resistant floor coating for chemical and printing works, aircraft hangers, bottling and canning factories,
pharmaceutical production, etc.
Concrete shall be a minimum of 21 days old and/ or the residual moisture content shall be below 6%. Ensure that the concrete is clean and free from dust, laitance, oil, curing compound, existing paint finishes, etc. Blow holes and defective concrete shall be made good using a proprietary repair compound e.g. ALLCOAT Epoxy Repair Mortar. Suitable mechanical treatment, such as vacuum grit-blasting, is the preferred treatment prior to application, as this ensures a mechanical key for the coating.
Steel surfaces shall be shot blasted or grit blasted to a nominal Sa 2.5 Swedish standard. All dust and grease shall be removed prior to coating application. If a delay is likely to occur between blasting and application then it is recommended that a coat of ALLCOAT QD Primer be applied as holding primer to obviate flash rusting.
Apply onto the properly prepared surface a coat of ALLCOAT WB Primer for porous surfaces.
Mixing & Application
Pour the contents of the CURING AGENT tin into the BASE container and thoroughly mix, preferably by mechanical means until a uniform colour is achieved.
Apply by brush, short piled roller or airless spray at a nominal rate of 0.3 – 0.5 kg/m²/coat, depending on overall dry film thickness required. After a minimum of 14 hours @ 20°C, but within a maximum of 48 hours, apply a second coat at the same nominal rate. If the maximum over-coating limit is exceeded, the first coat must be abraded and solvent wiped prior to application of the second coat. Should a slip resistant finish be required, then a broadcast of graded Silica Sand, or Silicon Carbide shall be made immediately after the first coat. Brush off excess aggregate prior to application of the second coat.
