Surface preparation

  • 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.
  • After blasting, remove dust from the surface.
  • The surface to be coated must be clean and dry.
  • Apply Epilux 825 immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. In case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.

Application procedure

Mix both components together until a uniform grey colour is achieved. The coating may be applied by hand smearing to a thickness of 3-6mm. The preferred application technique is to apply a 'ring' or 'doughnut' to the structural members above the water line and then smearing it down uniformly to and below the water line, remembering to ensure the “feather edge” the top and bottom of the coating to the member.
