Remove all dirt, oil grease, soil, chemical contaminants, and any other foreign matter before abrasive blast cleaning. Prepare and paint only clean, dry surfaces in accordance with Steel Structures Painting Council (SSPC) or National Association of Corrosion Engineers (N.A.C.E.) specifications.
Steel- (Non-Immersion) Corrosive Service – Sand blast to a “Near-White” blast finish as outlined in SSPC-SP10- 63T or N.A.C.E. No. 2 specification. Prime all blasted steel within 4 hours to prevent rust back. Apply 1 or 2 coats of CM-15, PC-500 or PC-517.
Steel – (Immersion): Sand blast to a “White Metal” blast finish as outlined in SSPC-SP5-63 or N.A.C.E. No. 1 specification. A 1-2 mil profile is required when blasting. Prime all blasted steel within 4 hours to prevent rust from reoccurring. Apply 2 coats of PC-500 or PC-517 depending on service.
Gulf Coast Paint Mfg., Inc. recommends four types of surface preparation. Any one of the four surface reparations may be sufficient or a combination of the four may be required depending on the condition of the concrete Surface.
High pressure water blast with sand injection all surfaces to remove ail laitance, contaminants, and other foreign deposits to provide a sound, clean surface. Use clean dry air to blow down these areas to remove excessive moisture.
2. Acid Etch
Work the solution into the concrete with a stiff broom or fiber brush. Allow solution to remain on the concrete surface for approximately 10 minutes or until the effervescing and bubbling ceases. Then flush floor thoroughly with clean, fresh water to remove all laitance, dirt, and other foreign materials.
Random pH readings using distilled water should be made to insure all contaminants have been removed. A final pH between 7.0 and 8.5 is acceptable. Also, at the same time, it is recommended that a “Water Dissipation Test” be made on random areas of the floor to determine the proper degree of porosity has been achieved.
NOTE: Do not allow the Clean & Etch solution to dry on the floor before flushing off because dirt, etc., can be redeposited in the pores of the concrete.
3. Vacuum Blast
4. Dry Abrasive Blast
In all cases of surface preparation, the pH should be checked. Also, a “Water Dissipation Test” should be made on random areas of the floor. A “Vapor Barrier Test” should also be run on the concrete. Consult Gulf Coast Paint Mfg. for specifics on testing. Do not apply to slabs on grade unless a heavy unruptured vapor barrier has been installed on the slab. New concrete must be cured at least a minimum of 28 days at 75 F before applying a coating. All laitance, efflorescence, chemical contaminants, grease, oil, and other foreign material must be removed. The prepared surface must be clean, dry and structurally sound. Apply appropriate concrete Primer (eg PC-155 or PC-1702)
|Mixing Instructions, Application Procedure & Recoat Time|
Stir each component to a uniform consistency using an explosion proof variable speed drill with a Jiffy mixer. Then mix 4 parts Base A with 1 part Hardener B for 3 minutes using the powered Jiffy mixer. PC-555 may be reduced up to 20% with S-74 per mixed gallon. Do not substitute reducers.
2. Conventional Spray
3. Brush – use pure bristle brush
4. Roller – medium nap solvent resistant phenolic core
When spraying, use a 50% overlapping Crosshatch pattern to minimize the occurrence of pinholes. Do not apply to surfaces below 45 F. Or above 120 F. Do not apply over dew or frost. Do not apply if the temperature is within 5 of the Dew Point.
|PC-555 is Flammable. Keep away from all sources of ignition during mixing, application and cure. The Hardener and Base can cause eye and skin burns as well as allergic reactions. Use goggles, fresh air masks or NIOSH approved respirators, protective skin cream and protective clothing. This product is sold without warranty as to performance expressed or implied. Users are urged to make their own tests to determine the suitability for their particular conditions.
For Professional and Industrial use only.
PC-555 Novolac Coating
A high solids modified cycloaliphatic cured multifunctional epoxy Novolac coating. The filler is ceramic which maximizes chemical, abrasion and thermal shock resistance. Has exceptional chemical and solvent resistance for an air cured system. Designed for use in splash and spillage of 98% Sulfuric Acid and 37% HCL. This product is used as a Finish Coat on steel, concrete and polymer materials.
