Description

Carboline Carbomastic 615 AL is a two-component, high performance aluminium-filled epoxy for steel and concrete that has excellent resistance to water exposures. This coating exhibits outstanding moisture and surface tolerance during application, low temperature cure capability, and very fast cure response for quick return to service.

Carbomastic 615 is ideal for industrial or heavy-duty marine environments for the protection of steel against salt-laden environments.

Suitable for immersion service in fresh or salt water after 60-minute cure @24°C.

Drying Times


Curing Schedule
Surface Temp. Dry to Topcoat Minimum Maximum Recoat Time Minimum Cure for Immersion Service
-7°C 72 Hours 45 Days 7 Days
2°C 2 Days 30 Days 5 Days
16°C 8 Hours 15 Days 3 Hours
24°C 2 Hours 7 Days 1 Hour
32°C 90 Minutes 3 Days 1 Hour



  • These times are based on a 5.0 mil (125 micron) dry film thickness. 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
  • Recoat intervals may vary from those listed above when using under intumescent fireproofing products
  • Consult Rawlins on Tech - 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] for recommended cure times before applying Carboline intumescent products
  • 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 for specific requirements



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 in accordance with SSPC-SP 1 and follow the guidelines below

Steel

  • Immersion: NACE No. 2/SSPC-SP 10 with a 2.0-3.0 mil (50-75 microns) surface profile
  • Non-Immersion: NACE No. 3/SSPC-SP 6 with a 2.0-3.0 mil (50-75 microns) surface profile for maximum protection. SSPC-SP 2, SSPC-SP 3, NACE No. 4/SSPC-SP 7, NACE/SSPC WJ-1 to WJ-4, or SSPC-SP 14 are also acceptable methods. For alternate methods contact Rawlins
  • When using under fireproofing products, defer to the primer surface preparation requirements in the product data sheet of the fireproofing product.

Concrete

  • Concrete shall be designed, placed, cured, and prepared in accordance with NACE No. 6/SSPCSP 13, latest edition.
  • Abrade to remove all laitance, loose concrete, etc. and to create surface profile in accordance with ICRI CSP standards for the coating system

Stainless Steel

  • SSPC-SP 16: for immersion service create 1.5 to 3 mils (38 to 75 microns) anchor profile



Application Methods


Product Information
Mixing: Mix separately, then combine and mix in the following proportions:
1 Gallon Kit = Part A: 0.8 Gallon; Part B: 0.2 Gallons
5 Gallon Kit = Part A: 4 Gallons: Part B: 1 Gallon
Thinning: Thin up to 12% by volume with Carboline Thinner 2
Ratio: 4:1 (Part A to Part B)
Pot Life: 1½ hours at 24°C and less at higher temperatures
Pot life ends when coating becomes too viscous to use
Spray Application (General) Hold gun 12-14 inches from the surface and at a right angle to the surface
Conventional Spray Pressure pot equipped with dual regulators, 3/8” I.D. minimum material hose, .070” I.D. fluid tip and appropriate air cap
Airless Spray: Pump Ratio: 30:1 min
Volume Output: 2.5 gpm min.
Material Hose: 3/8” I.D. min
Tip Size: 0.017-0.021”
Output PSI: 2000-2500 psi
1/2" minimum I.D. material hose recommended
Brush and Roller: Not recommended for tank lining applications except when striping welds.
For non-immersion applications over damp surfaces, brush and roller is the preferred method
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
Thin up to 11% by volume per gallon with Carboline Thinner 2. Use a short-nap synthetic roller cover with phenolic core



Application Conditions


Product Conditions
Condition Material Surface Ambient Humidity
Minimum 7°C -7°C -7°C 0%
Maximum 32°C 49°C 38°C 95%



  • 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 Carbomastic 615 can tolerate damp substrates
  • Special thinning and application techniques may be required above or below normal conditions
  • Do not apply to substrates with ice or ice crystal formation
  • Dehumidify or raise the temperature to eliminate ice on the substrate



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 safety data sheet for this product
  • 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.
  • The ventilation system should be capable of preventing the solvent vapor concentration from reaching the lower explosion limit for the solvents used
  • In addition to ensuring proper ventilation, appropriate respirators must be used by all application personnel
  • 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
  • Refer to the product and safety data sheet in the attachments section above for further details
