Description

Carboline Carboguard 890 GF is a glass reinforced chemically resistant epoxy coating with wide versatility in all industrial markets. This self-priming coating uses the glass reinforcement to improve internal film strength, hardness, impact, and abrasion resistance. It is often used in severe service (above or below the waterline) in marine applications where these resistance qualities are desired.

Drying Times


Curing Schedule
Surface Temp Dry to Recoat Dry to Topcoat with Other Finishes Final Cure General
10°C 12 Hours 24 Hours 3 Days
16°C 8 Hours 16 Hours 2 Days
24°C 4 Hours 8 Hours 1 Day
32°C 2 Hours 4 Hours 16 Hours



  • 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 24°C. If the maximum recoat times have been exceeded, the surface must be abraded by sweep blasting or sanding to create mechanical anchor profile prior to the application of additional coats.



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

  • Immersion: NACE No. 2/SSPC-SP10
  • Profile: 3.0-4.0 mils (75-100 microns)
  • Non-Immersion: NACE No. 3/SSPC-SP6
  • Profile: 2.0-3.0 mils (50-75 microns)
  • SSPC-SP2, SP3 or SP15 are suitable cleaning methods for mild (non-immersion) environments and touch up.

Galvanised Steel

  • Abrasive blast as per SSPC-SP16 to achieve a minimum 50-75 microns profile.

Concrete or CMU

  • NACE No. 6/SSPC-SP13 and create surface profile of ICRI CSP 3 to 4.

Previously Painted Surfaces

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



Application Methods


Product Information
Mixing:

Power mix A & B separately, then combine and power mix

Then slowly add the Glass Flake Additive and power mix for 3-5 minutes

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
Vertical Surfaces: Up to 13 oz/gal (10%) with Thinner 213, Thinner 2, or 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) plus 1 bag (3.62 lbs/2 gal mix)
Pot Life:

890 GF 3 hours at 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” I.D. minimum material hose, .110” 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. (min)
Tip Size: .025”-.035”
Output PSI: 2200-2500
Brush and Roller (General): Multiple coats may be required to obtain desired appearance, recommended dry film thickness and adequate hiding
Brush: Use a medium bristle brush for touch up and striping of welds only
Roller: Not recommended

Maximum 32°C 52°C 43°C 90%



  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Refer to the product and safety data sheet in the attachments section above for further details.
