Epofond AM/9


Code: 5GA0000

Satin epoxy paint for steel, aluminium, light alloys, fibreglass, cement and wood surfaces. Recommended as a primer or undercoat in the marine industry but also widely applied on floors, tanks and industrial plants containing or in contact with oils,naphta,kerosene and soda solutions, performing a non toxic durable film. Used as a primer can be overcoated with chlorinated, acrilyc or polyurethane coatings, providing strong adhesion base and long effective anticorrosive barrier.


Steel. Sandblasted 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 or polyurethane undercoats in good condition overcoat with 1 coat of EPOFOND AM-9 followed by 1-2 coats of POLIFOND primer allowing the required waiting time between coats. Overcoat then with the desired topcoat. 

New Galvanized Steel. The surface should be clean, dry and well degreased. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND AM-9 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 AM-9 as suggested. 

Fibreglass. The surface should be dry, degreased with suitable detergent material, rinsed and slightly sanded with fine abrasive paper. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND AM-9 as suggested. 

Cement. The surface should be clean, dry, and well seasoned free from loosing particles. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND AM-9 (dilution dependent on the absorption of the cement surface). Let dry and overcoat with 2 coats of EPOFOND AM-9 (this can be left as a finish on floors or internal walls). For other finishing purposes overcoat with 2 coats of polyurethane enamel.
