Drying Times


Curing Schedule
Surface Temp Dry to Recoat Maximum Recoat Time Final Cure Immersion
10°C (50°F) 36 Hours 30 Days 14 Days
16°C (60°F) 20 Hours 21 Days 10 Days
24°C (75°F) 10 Hours 14 Days 7 Days
32°C (90°F) 5 Hours 7 Days 5 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
  • 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

Food-grade exposures require force curing at 107°C for four hours. Raise temperature 1°C for every 30 minutes until temperature is reached. (Other curing temperatures in table below)

Metal Curing Time
66°C (150°F) 12 hours
79°C (175°F) 10 hours
93°C (200°F) 6 hours
107°C (225°F) 4 hours



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: SSPC-SP10
  • Surface Profile: 50-88 microns

Concrete or CMU

  • Immersion: 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



Application Methods


Product Information
Mixing:

Power mix separately, then combine and power mix. Requires short 15-minute sweat-in time

Do not mix partial kits

Thinning:

Thinning will be required to properly atomize the mixed material. Thin up to 20% (25 oz/gal) with Thinner 2 or Thinner 76 (cooler conditions)

Use of thinners other than those supplied by Carboline may adversely affect product performance and void product warranty, whether expressed or implied

Ratio: 2:1 Ratio (A to B)
Pot Life:

1¼ Hours at 24°C (75°F)

2 Hours at 15.5°C (60°F)

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

Adjust air pressure to approximately 50 psi at the gun and provide 10-20 lbs. of pot pressure

Airless Spray:

Pump Ratio: 30:1 (min.)

GPM Output: 2.5 (min.)

Material Hose: 3/8” I.D. (min.)

Tip Size: 0.017”-0.021”

Output PSI: 1500-2300

Filter Size: 60 mesh

Apply a 'mist' bonding pass:

Allow to dry approximately one minute but not long enough to allow film to completely dry. Apply crisscross multi-passes, moving gun at fairly rapid rate, maintaining a wet appearing film.

Fast multi-passes may be applied until you have a film thickness of approximately 4-6 mil/100-150 microns (approximately 5-7 wet mil/125-175 microns). Repeat this procedure for the second coat to obtain an 8-12 mil/200-300 microns DFT. Call Rawlins on Tech - 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] for Q and A

Brush and Roller: Recommended for small areas and repairs only. Use a high quality brush and apply a very light crisscross brush coat. Allow to dry for approximately 5 minutes. Then apply a heavy coat using a crisscross brush pattern. “Flow” the coating on rather than try to “brush out.” Allow to dry tackfree. Repeat until sufficient film thickness is obtained. Normally, a film thickness of 62-75 microns can be obtained per coat by this method
Brush: Use a medium bristle brush
Roller: Not recommended



Application Conditions


Product Conditions
Condition Material Surface Ambient Humidity
Minimum 10°C 10°C 10°C 0%
Maximum 32°C 52°C 43°C 80%



  • 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
  • Note: Prior to spray application, stripe brush all weld attachments and surface irregularities using Phenoline 385 thinned a minimum of 50% by volume with Thinner 2



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 and use personal protective equipment as directed
  • Employ normal workmanlike safety precautions

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