Mictel Epoxy- S is a solvent base bi-component epoxy resin. It combines a reasonable ease of handling with high chemical and mechanical resistance after curing.
It is used as a metal primer and as a finished coat on all kinds of metal substrates. The film structure has a greater protection durability for metal bridges, metal pipe lines, steel beams, galvanized steel and chemical storage tanks from environmental hazards such as heat, light, wind, salt spray.
It finds its way on interior and exterior floor and wall surfaces of beverage, fish and meat processing plants, hospitals, pharmaceutical areas, operation theatre, foot and vehicular trafficable areas, car parks, oil and grease warehouses, generators rooms, water purification plants, very humid rooms etc.
Also used as an excellent anti-graffiti coating that could be easily cleaned with detergent to remove marker or spray paint writing and staining substances.
Surfaces to be coated must be solid, clean and free from oils, greases, salt, dirt, efflorescence and other contaminants. Mictel Epoxy- S could be top coated after 48 hours.
Best results on metal and concrete are obtained by sand blasting to remove laitance, grout and dust contaminants, then vacuum cleaned. If sand blasting is not required, pre-treatment with 5%-10% acid solution (acid etching) brushed out on the top of old substrates and after about 5 minutes when the solution ceases to effervesce, rinse the surface with clean water.
Pre-treatment by mechanical means could also be useful.
Highly alkaline or acidic surfaces should be neutralized then properly cleaned.
If oxidation occurs between blasting time and priming, the surface should be re-blasted and cleaned to the specified standard.
Non-disintegrated paints should be roughened properly to insure good primer adhesion .
Flaking, blistered, cracking or heavily chalking paint should be removed by sand blasting, flame spraying, paint removers or mechanical tools and rebounded by a priming coat.
