Coverage


  • 0.25-0.30kg/m²/coat
  • A 5kg pack is sufficient to treat 8.3m2 of surface with the recommended two coat treatment, providing an overall d.f.t. of 500 microns



Surface Preparation


Concrete:

  • 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, grease, oil, curing compound and existing paint finishes etc



Steel:

  • 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



Priming:

  • A coat of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer is recommended on absorbent concrete surfaces
  • Apply in accordance with 401 Epoxy Floor Primer data sheet
  • For steel substrates 310 Chemical Resistant Coating may be applied directly, or if a delay is likely to occur between blasting and application then it is recommended that a coat of 404 Epoxy Metal Primer is applied as a holding primer to obviate flash rusting



Mixing:

  • Pour the contents of the curing agent container into the base container and thoroughly mix, preferably by mechanical means, until a uniform colour is achieved



Mixing Ratio:

  • By Volume = 2.46 Base : 1 Curing Agent
  • By Weight = 100 Base : 35.1 Curing Agent



Application


  • Apply by brush or roller at a nominal rate of 0.3kg/m² per coat, with a minimum of 12 hours between coats
  • After a minimum of 6 hours @ 20°C but within a maximum of 24 hours, apply a second coat at the same nominal rate
  • If the maximum overcoating limit is exceeded, the first coat must be abraded and solvent wiped prior to application of the second coat
  • Should a non-slip finish be required, then a broadcast of 504 Standard Anti-Slip Aggregate shall be made immediately after the first coat
  • Brush off excess aggregate prior to application of the second coat



Cleaning




Curing


  • Allow to cure for a minimum of 6 hours @ 20°C prior to light foot traffic access and 24 hours @ 20° prior to vehicular trafficking
  • Allow a minimum of 5 days cure @ 20°C for optimum chemical resistance



Limitations


  • Do not apply to wet or uncured concrete surfaces
  • Do not apply at temperatures of 2°C or less
  • Discoloration/bleaching of the coating can occur on contact with certain aggressive chemicals, thus leading to contamination/discolouration of the chemical itself
  • Discoloration is purely a surface effect that does not detract from the efficacy of the coating in service



Storage & Shelf Life


  • Store in dry conditions, out of direct sunlight, at temperatures between 10°C and 25°C
  • Do not expose to freezing conditions
  • 310 Chemical Resistant Coating has a minimum shelf life of 12 months when stored in original, unopened containers in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions



Health & Safety


  • Avoid contact of the material with skin and eyes
  • Wear gloves and goggles
  • Wash off splashes immediately with soap and water

questions Kevin Quinn on 2019-12-27 12:39:15
Question: 

Would this be the best product to paint the internal structure of our canning filler? Would we need to strip existing paint or could we paint over it. Also is it resistant to caustic soda 3% solution & 70oC

Answer: 

310 Chemical Resistant Coating wouldn't be suitable for this application due to the raised temperatures and we wouldn't have anything else we could recommend at this time I'm afraid.

questions Steve Szaflicki  on 2019-06-20 10:05:07
Question: 

we have steel powered coated roof sheets that are being exposed to hydrogen peroxide, via a roof vent. the gas has stripped the powder coating and the sheets are rusting. i was looking at the 310 chemical resistant coating to offer protection of the roof but reading some of your comments this product may be too rigid? would you have a recommendation? thanks Steve.

Answer: 

Given the set of circumstances described, we would suggest trialling Rust-Oleum 9169 Epoxy Rust Primer followed by 2 coats of Rust-Oleum 5500 Solvent Free Epoxy

But if the current atmosphere is so aggressively attacking a powder coating, then early attack of a wet applied system should be expected also.

questions Gareth Higgs on 2019-06-17 09:53:50
Question: 

Hi, Is this paint Skydrol resistant? Cheers

Answer: 

Yes, it is rated as having 'EXCELLENT' chemical resistance on long term immersion basis to Skydrol (typically 5-10 years).

questions Joe Dattilo on 2018-12-03 22:04:13
Question: 

Looking for coating that resists exposure to 99% sulfuric acid. Product 310 states 96-99% sulfuric acid resistance. Can you confirm 99% please. Most Novalac Epoxies only resist to 98%. This will be used as concrete coating with 99% sulfuric acid exposure.

Answer: 

We quote 96 – 99%, which is the range that commercial grade Sulphuric Acid is available in. We confirm that the 310 Chemical Resistant Coating will provide resistance against 99% Sulphuric Acid, although some discoloration of the coating is possible on exposure (purely an aesthetic defect). We would not recommend the coating for primary containment (i.e. lining tanks) in this environment, however concrete floors or bund lining applications with spillage is fine.

Question: 

Hello, Can this be applied to Hot Dipped Galvanised Cable Tray?

Answer: 

We have no experience of 310 Chemical Resistant Coating being applied to cable trays and there may be a concern regarding how much movement/flex these may have under a rigid coating. 310 Chemical Resistant Coating can however be applied to galvanised steel if you wish to carry out a trial by using 404S Epoxy Metal Primer.

questions M Sims on 2018-09-03 12:55:23
Question: 

Hi, is this floor system fully anti slip?

Answer: 

310 Chemical Resistant Coating is a smooth coating on its own - should a non-slip finish be required, then a broadcast of 504 Standard Anti-Slip Aggregate shall be made immediately after the first coat. Brush off excess aggregate prior to application of the second coat.

questions DAVID JONES on 2018-07-19 13:10:36
Question: 

Hi, how many coats of this paint will new concrete need. Thanks Dave

Answer: 

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, grease, oil, curing compound and existing paint finishes etc. Blow holes and defective concrete shall be made good using 201 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.

A coat of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer is recommended on absorbent concrete surfaces. Apply in accordance with 401 Epoxy Floor Primer data sheet.

Apply 310 Chemical Resistant Coating by brush, short pile roller or airless spray at a nominal rate of 0.3 to 0.5kg/m² per coat, depending on overall dry film thickness required. After a minimum of 6 hours @ 20°C but within a maximum of 24 hours, apply a second coat at the same nominal rate.

Should a non-slip finish be required, then a broadcast of 504 Standard Anti-Slip Aggregate shall be made immediately after the first coat. Brush off excess aggregate prior to application of the second coat.

Allow to cure for a minimum of 6 hours @ 20°C prior to light foot traffic access and 24 hours @ 20° prior to vehicular trafficking. Allow a minimum of 5 days cure @ 20°C for optimum chemical resistance.

questions James Walsh on 2018-07-18 00:20:26
Question: 

Hi Will this be suitable for external use and withstand FAM30 with a contact time of 1 hour, along with pressure washer cleaning? Thanks James

Answer: 

We come across FAM® 30 quite often, 310 Chemical Resistant Coating is highly resistant to the components of the product. It is suitable for outdoor use but it is not UV stable so the colour may fade (this will not affect the performance of the product however). We would stress the importance of mechanical preparation of the surface (as per the product data sheet) otherwise a pressure washer could remove the coating.

questions tony winchester on 2018-07-09 13:55:24
Question: 

310 Chemical Resistant Coating - are you able to supply this in Green Ral 6037 ?

Answer: 

Unfortunately not, we can however offer most other RAL and BS colours as long as they are not fluorescent or metallic shades.

questions Pieter Chalke on 2018-04-18 02:57:07
Question: 

Could you please advise if the 310 coating system is suitable for application to valves and pipework?

Answer: 

No, instead we would recommend something like Rust-Oleum 5500 Solvent Free Epoxy or Rust-Oleum 9100 High Performance Epoxy to be better suited to that type of application. A copy of their chemical resistance charts can be provided upon request.

questions Ian Lynch on 2017-03-06 21:08:45
Question: We have a concrete bund which from time to time requires protection from 6-8% nitric acid. Would you recommend direct application of the product, or use of a primer onto the concrete first?
Answer: 

In the 310 Chemical Resistant Coating Chemical Resistance Guide available to download from the 'DATASHEETS' tab on the product page it denotes 'GOOD' chemical resistance on a continuous immersion basis (typically 1-2 years) for Nitric Acid at a concentration of 10%.

In the Technical Data Sheet also available for download it states that a coat of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer is recommended on absorbent concrete surfaces prior to the application of 310 Chemical Resistant Coating.

questions dene on 2017-01-09 11:02:07
Question:  can 310 Chemical Resistant Coating be applied to a plasterboard surface? We have a 1hr fire resistance (two layers of plasterboard taped and skimmed) on jumbo stud wall. can 310 Chemical Resistant Coating be applied the that?
Answer: 

Adhesion to plaster with these sorts of industrial products is never great, due to the very smooth nature of the surface. The use of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer will help, but the 310 Chemical Resistant Coating is a very hard and rigid coating, so any movement may cause cracking and loss of adhesion. Therefore, we could not guarantee the system on plaster.

However, if you can provide some more information about your project, the chemicals you are trying to protect against, etc. we may have a more suitable alternative.
