Description

Carboline Carboguard 890 is a highly chemical resistant epoxy mastic coating with exceptionally versatile uses in all industrial markets. Self-priming and suitable for application over most existing coatings, and tightly adherent rust. Serves as stand-alone system for a variety of chemical environments and is also designed for various immersion conditions.

An optional micaceous iron oxide additive (MIO Filler) can be purchased separately and may be used per the Product Data Sheet to enhance corrosion protection and film strength for more aggressive service such as severe marine or heavy industrial uses.

Please Note: The colour shades available are an approximation only. Due to the nature of this Carboline product, it is not possible to show an exact shade match, as each batch is made different.

Drying Times


Curing Schedule
Surface Temp Dry to Recoat Dry to Topcoat w/ Other Finishes Final Cure General Final Cure Immersion
50°F (10°C) 12 Hours 24 Hours 3 Days NR
60°F (16°C) 8 Hours 16 Hours 2 Days 10 Days
75°F (24°C) 4 Hours 8 Hours 1 Day 5 Days
90°F (32°C) 2 Hours 4 Hours 16 Hours 3 Days



  • 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 discolouration, and may result in a surface haze. Any haze or blush must be removed by water washing before recoating.
  • During high humidity conditions, it is recommended that the application be done while temperatures are increasing.
  • 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.
  • For application and cure conditions below 35°F, dehumidify before, during, and after application to prevent ice formation on the surface.
  • Maximum recoat/topcoat times are 30 days for epoxies and 90 days for polyurethanes at 75°F (24°C). 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.



Surface Preparation


General

  • Surfaces must be clean and dry. Remove all dirt, dust, oil and all other contaminant.

Steel

  • Immersion: SSPC-SP10
  • Non-immersion: SSPC-SP6
  • 1.5-3.0 mils (38-75 microns) SSPC-SP2 or SP3 are suitable cleaning methods for mild environments.

Galvanised Steel

  • SSPC-SP 16: for immersion service create 1.5 to 3 mils, (37.5-75 microns), anchor profile.

Concrete or CMU

  • Concrete shall be designed, placed, cured, and prepared per NACE No. 6/SSPC-SP 13, latest edition. This includes abrading to remove all laitance, loose concrete, etc. and to create the surface profile required for the coating system to be used. The concrete shall be considered cured sufficiently for coating when it passes the moisture tests.

Drywall and Plaster

  • Joint compound and plaster should be fully cured prior to coating application.

Previously Painted Surfaces

  • Lightly sand or abrade to roughen surface and de-gloss the surface. Existing paint must attain a minimum 3A rating in accordance with ASTM D3359 “X-Cut” adhesion test.

Stainless Steel

  • SSPC-SP 16: for immersion service create 1.5 to 3 mils, (37.5 to 75) microns, anchor profile.



Application Methods


Product Information
Mixing: Power mix separately, then combine and power mix. DO NOT MIX PARTIAL KITS
Thinning: Spray: Up to 13 oz/gal (10%) with Thinner 2
Brush: Up to 16 oz/gal (12%) with Thinner 33
Roller: Up to 16 oz/gal (12%) with Thinner 33
Thinner 33 can be used for spray in hot/windy conditions. Use of thinners other than those supplied or recommended by Carboline may adversely affect product performance and void product warranty, whether expressed or implied.
Ratio: 1:1 Ratio (A to B)
Pot Life: 3 Hours at 75°F (24°C). Pot life ends when coating loses body and begins to sag. Pot life times will be less at higher temperatures.
Spray Application (General): This is a high solids coating and may require adjustments in spray techniques. Wet film thickness is easily and quickly achieved.
Conventional Spray: Pressure pot equipped with dual regulators, 3/8” (0.95 cm) I.D. minimum material hose, 0.070” (0.18 cm) I.D. fluid tip and appropriate air cap.
Airless Spray: Pump Ratio: 30:1 (min)
GPM Output: 3.0 (min)
Material Hose: 3/8” I.D. (0.95 cm) (min)
Tip Size: 0.017-0.021” (0.04-0.05 cm)
Output PSI: 2100-2300 Filter Size: 60 mesh
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 rerolling. For best results, tie-in within 10 minutes at 75°F (24°C).
Brush: Use a medium bristle brush.
Roller: Use a short-nap solvent resistant roller cover.



Application Conditions


Product Conditions
Condition Material Surface Ambient Humidity
Minimum 50°F (10°C) 50°F (10°C) 50°F (10°C) 0%
Maximum 90°F (32°C) 125°F (52°C) 110°F (43°C) 95%



  • 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 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.
  • Keep container closed when not in use.
  • Employ normal workmanlike safety precautions.

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.
  • User should test and monitor exposure levels to ensure all personnel are below guidelines.
  • Refer to the product and safety data sheet in the attachments section above for further details.
