M-CORR 700 - Heat Activated Corrosion Under Insulation Coating
Is high performance, single pack epoxy novolac coating. The product once cured provides excellent chemical and corrosion resistance at elevated service temperatures.
To enable full material cure M-CORR 700 must be applied to hot metal surfaces at temperatures ranging between (100°C – 150°C). Once cured the material is suitable for dry heat applications up to 220°C or immersed conditions up to 60°C
Due to the application requirements of M-CORR 700 the material is suited for applications to live pipework and process equipment running above the minimum 100°C. The material is particularly effective as a coating system to combat the negative effects of corrosion under insulation (CUI).
- External pipe protection
- Reactor protection
- Vessel protection
Please contact us to discuss your project before purchasing this material to confirm suitability.
- All oil and grease must be removed from the surface using an appropriate cleaner such as MEK or similar type solvent.
- All surfaces must be abrasive blasted to ISO 8501/4 Standard SA2.5 (SSPC SP10/ NACE 2) minimum blast profile of 75 microns using an angular.
- Once blast cleaned the surface must be degreased and cleaned using MEK or similar type solvent.
- All surfaces must be coated before gingering or oxidation.
- All surfaces must be hydro-blasted using clean water at 12,000 psi (850bar) to NACE 5 (SSPC SP13 WJ3-WJ1).
- All surfaces must be coated before gingering or oxidation occurs.
- All oil and grease must be removed from the surface using an appropriate cleaner such as MEK.
- All surfaces must be mechanically abraded using handheld grinders to ISO 8501/4 ST3 (SSPC SP3 ST3).
- Once abraded, the surface must be degreased and cleaned using MEK or similar type material.
- All surfaces must be repaired before gingering or oxidation occurs.
PLEASE NOTE: The coating can be applied to cold surfaces, however after application the coated surface must be heated to 100˚C+ for the coating to cure. Heat must be applied until the coating has cured hard.
Prior to mixing please ensure the following:
- The base component is at a temperature between 15-25°C.
- Do not apply the material when the ambient or substrate temperature is below 5°C.
- Single component material.
Brush & Roller
- Pour the mixed material into a paint kettle or paint tray (this will maximise the usable life).
- Stripe coat all edges, joints & corners at approximately 100mm wide, at 200-300microns wet film thickness.
- Once the stripe coat has cured and is capable of being overcoated, apply a basecoat at a minimum wet film thickness 400 microns.
- Once the basecoat has cured sufficiently, apply a topcoat at a minimum wet film thickness of 400 microns.
