Surface preparation

  • This product should be applied to a surface that has been blast cleaned. It can be applied either directly to steel or suitably primed surface (e.g. Epilux 610 or Zincanode 685).
  • Remove all wax, oil and grease by solvent cleaning in accordance with the guidelines given by SSPC-SP1.
  • Wherever necessary remove weld spatter and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to a smooth surface.
  • Abrasive blast clean to a minimum standard of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP6.
  • Any surface defects revealed by blast cleaning should be ground, filled or treated in a suitable manner.
  • An average surface profile of 100 microns is acceptable but this average should not exceed 125 microns.
  • After blasting, remove dust from the surface.
  • The surface to be coated must be clean and dry.
  • Apply Epilux 86 or suitable primer immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. In case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.
