Description

M-CERAMIC 403 – Epoxy Ceramic Wear Compound – High Abrasion & High Temperature

Is a two-component solvent free Epoxy Novolac Ceramic Wear Compound containing graded 1.5mm ceramic beads for extreme wear environments from fine particles & wet slurries.

Once cured the repair materials can withstand immersion temperatures up to 130°C & dry temperatures up to 240°C 

Making M-CERMAC 403 – ideal for applications where high temperature and abrasion are present or possible chemical contact.

The material can be applied up to 10mm in a single application without shrinking. Normal application method is by plastic applicator tool, trowel, and spatula.

Typical Uses

  • Internal Protecting for Pneumatic Pipework
  • Wear Resistant lining for Glass Processing Equipment.
  • Wear Resistant Lining for Dryers, Cyclones & Silos 
  • Create Wear Plates
  • Protect Pipe Elbows
  • As a filler for lost Ceramic Wear Tiles

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.
  • 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.

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.

Mixing full units or by part-mixing.

  • If mixing the whole unit, please ensure as much of the base and activator is dispensed from the plastic container onto a clean plastic mixing surface.
  • Mix using the spatula provided until a uniform material free of any streakiness is achieved while ensuring no unmixed material is left on the spatula or the mixing surface.
  • For part mixing, using a spatula place 2 equal measures from the base unit onto a clean plastic mixing surface. Clean the spatula thoroughly and then take 1 equal measure from the Activator unit and place alongside the base measures. Mix as above.
  •  

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

  • The mixed material should be applied directly to the prepared metal surface at a minimum thickness of 3mm using a spatula or applicator tool.
