Epilux 815

A two component, high solids, high build, chemically resistant epoxy phenolic tank lining.

An internal tank lining suitable for use with a wide range of chemicals. It has excellent chemical resistance to chemicals such as crude oil, unleaded gasoline, jet fuel, MTBE, acidic and caustic solutions, etc. It also has outstanding adhesion to blasted steel along with good anti-corrosive performance properties. Epilux 815 is a coating that is able to withstand operational temperature ranges between –5 to 80ºC.

Surface preparation

  • Epilux 815 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 815 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.
