Berger Apcotherm EPN 200

A two component, self-priming heat resisting epoxy phenolic paint developed for excellent chemical and corrosion resistance when used in high temperature service.

Apocptherm EPN 200 is recommended as a corrosion resistant barrier to protect for steelwork under thermal insulation subject to wet and dry cycles. It is self-priming with excellent adhesion on blast cleaned steel, un-insulated steel pipeline, process equipments, vessels, etc., operating continuously upto 200ºC and intermittently at 250ºC. It has excellent resistance to “Thermal Shock” experienced during rapid heating and cooling conditions.

Surface preparation

  • Berger Apcotherm EPN 200 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 50 – 75 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 Berger Apcotherm EPN 200 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.
