Surface preparation

Steel

  • This product should be applied to a surface that has been blast cleaned. It can be applied either directly to steel or to a suitably primed surface (e.g. with Epilux 610 or Zincanode 685).
  • Remove all wax, oil and grease in accordance with the guidelines given by SSPC-SP1.
  • Where necessary, remove weld spatter and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to create a smooth surface.
  • Abrasive blast clean to a minimum standard of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP10.
  • Any surface defects revealed by blast cleaning should be rectified in a suitable manner.
  • An average surface profile of 50 - 75 microns is acceptable.
  • Apply Epilux 18HS immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. In case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.

Concrete

Ensure that the surface is sound. Remove laitence by thorough wire-brushing, acid etching or sweep blasting. Blowholes and other defects should be filled with Solventless Epoxy Filler. The first coat must be thinned by 20% for direct application to concrete.

Application procedure

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