Description

Carboline Carboguard 690 GF is a high performance, glass-flake filled, cold cure epoxy having excellent film strength and resistance to water, salt water and wastewater exposures. This coating exhibits outstanding moisture tolerance during application, low temperature cure capability, and fast cure response for quick return to service. Glass flake reinforcement enhances film strength, impact resistance and barrier properties.

Can be used on a variety of surfaces including structural steel, piping, pilings, ships, offshore structures, and other equipment exposed to industrial or marine environments. It can also be used in immersion service for salt water, process water (non-potable) and waste water treatment projects.

This product can be applied over damp or even wet substrates. Remove excess water by blowing down the surface and apply in multiple coats to achieve desired film thickness.
Brush or roller, and multiple coats are preferred over wet substrates.

Drying Times


Curing Schedule
Surface Temp Dry to Handle Minimum Recoat Time Maximum Recoat Time
20°F (-7°C) 72 Hours 72 Hours 60 Days
35°F (2°C) 17 Hours 17 Hours 45 Days
60°F (16°C) 6 Hours 6 Hours 30 Days

90°F (32°C) 1 Hour 2 Hours 7 Days



Schedule above based on 50% relative humidity and 10-15 mil (250-375 micron) dry film thickness per coat.

  • 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.
  • If the maximum recoat times have been exceeded, the surface must be abraded by sweep blasting or sanding prior to the application of additional coats.
  • For force curing, contact Rawlins on Tech - 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] Sales - 0113 2455450 or [email protected] for specific requirements.
  • For application and cure conditions below 35°F, dehumidify before, during, and after application to prevent ice formation on the surface.



Surface Preparation


General

  • Remove any oil or grease from surface to be coated with clean rags soaked in Carboline Thinner 2, or toluol.

Steel

  • Immersion: SSPC-SP10; Surface Profile: 2.0-4.0 mils (50-100 microns) (See Limitations).
  • Non-immersion: SSPC-SP6; Surface Profile: 1.5-3.0 mils (38-75 microns). In certain situations, SSPC-SP3 is acceptable for thicknesses up to 10 mils (250 microns).

Concrete or CMU

  • Do not apply coating unless concrete has cured at least 28 days @ 70°F (21°C) and 50% Relative humidity or equivalent.
  • Clean and dry; remove all loose, unsound concrete.



Application Methods


Product Information
Mixing: This is a 3-component kit. Mix liquid components separately, then combine and mix in the following proportions (4:1 ratio). Slowly add Glass Flake additive while mixing.
1 Gal. Kit: Part A: .8 gallon - Part B: .2 gallon, Glass Flake Additive: 1.8 lbs, Yield: 1.1 Gallons
5 Gal. Kit: Part A: 4 gallon - Part B: 1 gallon, Glass Flake Additive: 9 lbs, Yield: 5.5 Gallons. Thin up to 12.5% by volume with Carboline Thinner 2 for non-immersion applications and Thinner 10 for immersion projects.
Pot Life: 1.5 hours at 75°F (24°C) and less at higher temperatures. Pot life ends when coating becomes too viscous to use.
Conventional Spray Pressure pot equipped with dual regulators, 3/8” I.D. minimum material hose, 0.110” I.D. fluid tip and appropriate air cap.
Airless Spray: Pump Ratio: 45:1 (min)
Volume Output: 11.5 l/min minimum (2.5 gpm min)
Material Hose: 12.5mm min. (3/8” I.D. recommended)
Tip Size: 0.87-1.0 mm (0.035-0.041”)
Output: 140-175kg/cm²
Pressure: (2000-2500 psi)
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 75°F (24°C). Thin up to 12.5% by volume per gallon with Carboline Thinner 2. Use a short-nap synthetic roller cover with phenolic core.

  • Industry standards are for substrate temperatures to be above the dew point.
  • For immersion conditions it is recommended to follow this procedure.
  • For non-immersion conditions this product can tolerate damp substrates.
  • See Brush or Roller above
  • Special thinning and application techniques may be required above or below normal conditions.



Health and Safety


Clean Up

  • Use 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 SDS for this product.
  • Employ normal workmanlike safety precautions.
  • Hypersensitive persons should wear protective clothing, gloves and use protective cream on face, hands, and all exposed areas.

Ventilation

  • When used as a tank lining or 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 supplied air respirator.

Caution

  • This product contains flammable solvents
  • Keep away from sparks and open flames
  • All electrical equipment and installations should be made and grounded in accordance with applicable regulations.
  • In areas where explosion hazards exist, workmen should be required to use nonferrous tools and wear conductive and non-sparking shoes.
  • Refer to the product and safety data sheet in the attachments section above for further details.
