Epo-chem RL 500PF
Two pack, wet, rust and oil tolerant, VOC compliant epoxy primer/finish.
Chemco's Epo-chem™ RL 500PF is a wet & rust tolerant, two pack, high solids MIO - Zinc epoxy which can be utilized either as a one coat primer/finish with good UV resistance or as a high performance coating which can be overcoated with colour topcoats.
Furthermore, tests have shown that it is compatible with many aged paint systems, including epoxies, acrylics and other single pack materials. However, it is always advisable when over-coating existing paints to undertake small trial areas before progressing to full scale application.
Epo-chem™ RL 500PF on a sweating, rusty surface
- High solids, two pack epoxy, single coat primer/finish
- Wet, rust and oil tolerant
- Applicable to hand prepared, blasted or water blasted steel
- Apply and operate at temperatures up to 150°C
- Extensively used for thermally insulated pipes and tanks; exceptional resistance to C.U.I.
- Can be applied to steam pipes whilst they are in operation
- Manufactured to meet the maintenance needs of:
- Electricity transmission operators for pylons
- Rail track maintenance for bridges, gantries, etc. where possession times are minimal
- Chemical industry, structural coating with very good chemical resistance
- Petrochemical and Offshore. Especially suited to floating tank roofs and tank externals and structural coatings offshore (not weather dependant)
- Water and sewerage, pipe and tank externals
- Good edge coverage, reducing the need for stripe coating
