Description

Carboline Carboguard 60 is a high solids, versatile, abrasion resistant, chemical resistant, and corrosion resistant coating. It can be used as a primer, intermediate coat, or self-priming finish over steel or inorganic zinc primers. May be topcoated with itself, or a broad variety of high-performance finish coats.

Carboguard 60 has excellent wetting properties giving it the capability of going over marginally prepared substrates. It is ideal for maintenance and fabrication shop applications. An optional glass flake (GF) additive or micaceous iron oxide (MiO) additive can be purchased separately and may be used to enhance film strength for more abusive applications for severe marine or heavy industrial uses.  Contact out technical team on Tech - 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] Sales - 0113 2455450 or [email protected] for further information.

Drying Times


Curing Schedule
Surface Temp Dry to Touch Dry to Handle/Recoat with Itself Dry to Topcoat with Other Finishes Maximum Recoat Time
4°C 3 Hours 30 Hours 48 Hours 1 Year
10°C 2 Hours 20 Hours 24 Hours 1 Year
16°C 1 Hour 8 Hours 10 Hours 1 Year
24°C 45 Minutes 5 Hours 7 Hours 1 Year
32°C 30 Minutes 3 Hours 4 Hours 1 Year



  • These times are based on a 125 micron dry film thickness and 50% RH. Higher film thickness, insufficient ventilation or cooler temperatures will require longer cure times and could result in solvent entrapment and premature failure.
  • Excessive humidity or condensation on the surface during curing can interfere with the cure, can cause discoloration, and may result in a surface haze. Any haze or blush must be removed by water washing before recoating.
  • Recoat intervals may vary from those listed above when using under intumescent fireproofing products.
  • Contact Rawlins on Tech - 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] Sales - 0113 2455450 or [email protected] for recommended cure times before applying Carboline intumescent products
  • NOTE: If the maximum recoat times have been exceeded, the surface must be abraded by brush-off blast cleaning or mechanical methods prior to the application of additional coats.
  • For force curing, contact Rawlins for specific requirements.
  • Carboline Additive 8505 can be used to aid the film forming process in the product for temperatures down to 1.7°C.
  • Carboline Additive 8505 is added at a rate of 4 oz per mixed two-gallon kit or 20 oz per mixed ten gallon kit.
  • Allow mixed product 15-minute sweat in time before thinning, if material is under 21°C, and 24 hrs cure prior to topcoating for surface temperatures down to 4°C. At this addition rate, Additive 8505 will accelerate the cure rate of the epoxy product and reduce the pot life of the product.



Surface Preparation


General

  • Surfaces must be clean and dry. Employ adequate methods to remove dirt, dust, oil and all other contaminants that could interfere with adhesion of the coating.

Steel

  • For most applications: SSPC-SP6 - 38-75 microns
  • When using under fireproofing products, defer to the primer surface preparation requirements in the product data sheet of the fireproofing product.

Galvanised Steel

  • SSPC-SP16
  • When using under fireproofing products, defer to the primer surface preparation requirements in the product data sheet of the fireproofing product.

Concrete or CMU

  • Concrete must be cured 28 days at 24°C and 50% relative humidity or equivalent.
  • Prepare surfaces in accordance with ASTM D4258 Surface Cleaning of Concrete and ASTM D4259 Abrading Concrete. Voids in concrete may require surfacing.

Previously Painted Surfaces

  • SSPC-SP2 or SP3

Stainless Steel

  • SSPC-SP 16: for heavy industrial and marine service conditions create 38 to 75 microns anchor profile.

Application Methods


Product Information
Mixing: Power mix separately, then combine and power mix
Allow mixed product 15-minute sweat in time before thinning if material is under 21 °C
No sweat in needed above 21 °C

Use of thinners other than those supplied or recommended by Carboline may adversely affect product performance and void product warranty, whether expressed or implied.
Pot Life: 4 hours at 24°C
Pot life ends when coating loses body and begins to sag. Pot life times will be less at higher temperatures.
Conventional Spray: Pressure pot equipped with dual regulators, 3/8” I.D. minimum material hose, 0.070” I.D. fluid tip and appropriate air cap. For filler additives use a 0.110" I.D. fluid tip.

Output PSI: 2100-2500
Filter size: 60 mesh (remove mesh for filler additives)
Brush and Roller (General): Multiple coats may be required to obtain desired appearance, recommended dry film thickness and adequate hiding. Avoid excessive re-brushing or re-rolling. For best results, tie-in within 10 minutes at 24°C. The addition of GF or MiO fillers is best applied by spray application.
Brush: Use a medium bristle brush.
Roller: Use 3/8” nap roller with a solvent resistant core.

  • This product simply requires the substrate temperature to be above the dew point.
  • Condensation due to substrate temperatures below the dew point can cause flash rusting on prepared steel and interfere with proper adhesion to the substrate.
  • Special application techniques may be required above or below normal application conditions.



Health and Safety


Clean Up

  • Use Carboline Thinner 2 or Acetone.
  • In case of spillage, absorb and dispose of in accordance with local applicable regulations.

Safety

  • Read and follow all caution statements on this product data sheet and on the MSDS for this product.
  • Employ normal workmanlike safety precautions.
  • Use adequate ventilation.
  • Keep container closed when not in use.

Ventilation

  • When used in enclosed areas, thorough air circulation must be used during and after application until the coating is cured.
  • The ventilation system should be capable of preventing the solvent vapor concentration from reaching the lower explosion limit for the solvents used.
  • User should test and monitor exposure levels to ensure all personnel are below guidelines.
  • If not sure or if not able to monitor levels, use MSHA/NIOSH approved respirator.
  • Refer to the product data sheet and safety data sheets in the attachments section above for further details.
