Epimastic 3000HS

A high solids, high build, self-priming surface tolerant epoxy coating with excellent hardness and abrasion resistance.

Berger Epimastic 3000HS is a tough maintenance primer for steel in situations where blasting is impractical and only power or hand tool surface preparation is possible. It is suitable for hydro-blasted surfaces and concrete substrates. It is an anti-corrosive primer/ sealer/ finish coating for blasted steel substrates intended for immersion applications. It is suitable to use for anti-slip performance by sprinkling coarse aggregates on wet paint. It has an excellent anti-corrosive performance with outstanding fresh and seawater resistance and are able to cure under adverse conditions, underwater and at temperatures down to 5º C. An ideal, tar-free replacement for coal tar epoxies. PSPC type approval coating for sea water ballast tanks.

Surface preparation

• Remove all wax, oil and grease by solvent cleaning in accordance with the guidelines given by SSPC-SP1. Soluble salts, dirt and dust must be removed by dry brushing and freshwater washing. Remove scale by chipping, needle gun or spot blasting. Any loose or flaking coatings should be taken back to a firm edge.
• For atmospheric exposure applications, mechanically clean the surface using hand or power tools to a minimum standard of St 2 (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP2 taking care to avoid polishing the surface.
• Where necessary remove weld spatter and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to smooth surface.
• For immersion applications, abrasive blast clean to a minimum surface preparation standard of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP10, with an average surface profile of 75 – 100 microns. Apply Epimastic 3000HS immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. In case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.

• New concrete should be left for at least 21 days to cure before coating.
• The moisture content of the concrete surface should be checked and ensured to be below 6% when measured with a reliable moisture meter, such as the Sovereign Moisture Meter.
• The surface should be dry, free from surface contaminants, sound and undamaged.

Application procedure

Stir contents of the can thoroughly before use. Thinning is not usually required. However, if thinning is desired, do not exceed the recommended thinning ratio.
