Epoxy A/1 is a two-component, non-toxic solvent-free epoxy coating. It should be applied at a thickness of 200-250 microns per coat on steel, cement and fibreglass surfaces after previous adequate preparation of the substrate. Epoxy A/1 is recommended for the coating of tanks contining foodstuff ( e.g. drinking water, wine, milk, alcoohol, bier, animal and vegetal oils) or containing oil products, gasoline etc. The paint film obtained with EPOXY A/1 is sterilized after complete drying and curing for 4 hours at 120°
SURFACE PREPARATION AND RECOMMENDED COATING SYSTEM
Steel, Cement / New substrate. It is recommended the application of a suitable primer e.g. EPOFOND AM-9. Overcoat then with 1-2 coats of EPOXY A1.
Steel, Cement / Previously coated substrate. Remove all loose and flaking old paint from the substrate. Degrease with solvent. It is recommended the application of a suitable primer e.g. EPOFOND AM-9. Overcoat then with 1-2 coats of EPOXY A1.
