Surface preparation

  • Epilux 518 should be applied to a surface that has been blast cleaned. It may be applied directly to blast cleaned steel or over a suitable primer e.g. Epilux 610.
  • 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-SP10. An average surface profile of 75 – 100 microns is required.
  • Ensure that all surface defects detected after blast cleaning is ground, filled or treated in a suitable manner.
  • After blasting, remove dust from the surface. Ensure that the surface to be coated is clean, dry and free from any contaminants.
  • Apply Epilux 518 immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. The use of a dehumidification system and/or the use of a suitable blast/holding primer, such as Epilux 610, is recommended to prevent oxidation of the blasted steel surface. In case of oxidation/ recontamination, re-blast to the required standard. 

Application procedure

Mix the two components of this product only when ready to apply. Once mixed apply immediately. As this product has a very short potlife, delays in application may adversely affect self-levelling properties and may jam up airless spray equipment.
