Recommended Topcoats

Macropoxy g280 can be overcoated with a wide variety of materials, the choice of system being dependent on exposure conditions. 

Application Conditions & Overcoating

The material should preferably be applied at temperatures in excess of 10oC. In conditions of high relative humidity, ie 80-85% good ventilation conditions are essential. Substrate temperature shall be at least 3oC above the dew point and always above 0°C.

At application temperatures below 10°C, drying and curing times will be significantly extended, and spraying characteristics may be impaired.

Application at ambient air temperatures below 5°C is not recommended.

In order to achieve optimum water and chemical resistance, temperature needs to be maintained above 10oC during curing.

This material should be overcoated before any breakdown, such as peak rusting occurs. If such breakdown occurs as a result of extended exposure, re-preparation of the substrate by flash blasting or mechanical methods will be necessary. 

Additional Notes

Drying times, curing times and pot life should be considered as a guide only.

The curing reaction of epoxies commences immediately the two components are mixed, and since the reaction is dependent on temperature, the curing time and pot life will be approximately halved by a 10°C increase in temperature and doubled by a 10°C decrease in temperature.

Preparation and Build-Up: This material is not intended to replace a coat of primer in the main paint specification, it is designed to provide temporary protection until the specified paint scheme can be applied. However, in practice the use of this material does make a substantial contribution to the performance of the complete paint specification in terms of ultimate durability and resistance to corrosion.

Where this material has been subject to exposure prior to overcoating, thorough cleaning down will be required to ensure that all traces on contamination (e.g. dust, oil, grease, salts, etc.) are removed before application of the full paint system.

The applied dry film thickness of prefabrication primers is normally below 30 microns. At this level of dry film thickness, factors such as blast profile, unevenness of application and severity of exposure conditions may significantly affect the performance, especially immersion or water pooling.

Fabrication: While this material is classed and approved as a welding primer, under certain types of welding operations e.g. high speed twin-fillet welding, fabricators are advised to satisfy themselves that the product is suitable for their particular welding process.

Stability: Highly pigmented, low solids materials are prone to settling in the can. This will in no way affect the product performance provided the material is thoroughly stirred prior to use.

Numerical values quoted for physical data may vary slightly from batch to batch.
