Description

M-CHEM 300 - Acid Resistant Epoxy Novolac Coating

Is a high-build solvent free Epoxy Novolac Coating and provided excellent resistance to a wide range of concentrated Acids and industrial chemicals.

The material is suitable for a variety of applications including as a lining for bunding & Secondary containment or as an internal lining for process equipment such as pressure vessels operating below 60°C.

M-CHEM 300 – Acid Resistant Epoxy Novolac Coating is proven to protect against Sulfuric Acid 98%, Hydrochloric Acid 36% Phosphoric Acid 75% and Hydrobromic Acid 40%

Typical Uses

  • Acid Resistant lining for Process Columns
  • As a Chemical Storage Tank Lining
  • To protect Bunds & Containments from chemical attack

Please contact us to discuss your project before purchasing this material to confirm suitability.

Application Guide

  • All oil and grease must be removed from the surface using an appropriate cleaner such 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.

Existing Concrete

  • If the concrete surface is contaminated, pressure wash using clean water.
  • Once the concrete is dry, lightly abrasive blast or scarify taking care not to expose the aggregate.
  • Clean all dust and debris from the surface and take several moisture readings and prime with M-PRIME 100 – Low Viscosity Epoxy Concrete Primer or M-PRIME 104 – Damp Tolerant Concrete Primer depentant on moisture readings obtained.
  • Apply M-PRIME 100 or M-PRIME 104 at a target wet film of 150 microns, allow to cure before overcoating.
  • For very porous surfaces a second coat of primer may be required.

New Concrete

  • Allow new concrete to cure for a minimum of 21 days lightly abrasive blast or scarify to remove any surface laitance.
  • Clean all dust and debris from the surface and take several moisture readings and prime with M-PRIME 100 – Low Viscosity Epoxy Concrete Primer or M-PRIME 104 – Damp Tolerant Concrete Primer depentant on moisture readings obtained.
  • Apply M-PRIME 100 or M-PRIME 104 at a target wet film of 150 microns, allow to cure before overcoating.
  • For very porous surfaces a second coat of primer may be required.

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 10°C or less than 3°C above dew point.
  • Transfer the contents of the Activator unit into the Base container.
  • Using a low speed electric paddle mixer, mix the 2 components until a uniform material free of any streaks is achieved.
  • Once mixing is complete, use the mixed paste as soon possible after mixing.

Use all mixed material within 20-25 minutes at 20°C.

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.
  • Once the stripe coat has cured and is capable of being overcoated, apply a basecoat at a target wet film thickness of 400-500 microns.
  • Once the basecoat has cured sufficiently, approximately 4 hours at 20°C, apply a topcoat at a target wet film thickness of 400-500 microns.

Airless Spray

Spray application should be carried out by airless spray using a 45:1 ratio pump with an attached hot water pump to heat the spray lines.

  • The temperature around the spray lines should be kept around 25-35°C
  • Spray pressure of 3600psi and a tip size of 19-23 thou should be used.
  • Use as short a line as possible to maintain product temperature (maximum 8meters).
  • Circulate the product for a short time to achieve temperature equilibrium.
  • Stripe coat all edges, joints & corners.
  • Once the stripe coat has cured and is capable of being overcoated, apply a basecoat at a target wet film thickness of 400-500 microns.
  • Once the basecoat has cured sufficiently, approximately 4 hours at 20°C, apply a topcoat at a target wet film thickness of 400-500 microns.

 

To enhance the properties of this material, post curing will be required.

  • Allow the product to cure of at least 4 hours at 20°C.
  • Raise the coating and substrate temperature progressively to 60 – 100°C for up to 8 hours.

Post curing will result in improved mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance properties.
