For the base component, charge the aluminum paste and Syloid AL-1 to a suitable container with a mixer and let down slowly with the solvents, the epoxy resin solution and finally, the flow control agent, Beetle 216-8. Charge the ingredients of the curing agent component to a separate suitable container and mix thoroughly. Package the base component and the curing agent component separately to be mixed just prior to use.

 

Typical Handling Properties

This formulation is designed for spray application only, although other application methods may be considered. A film thickness of 1.5-2.0 mils per coat is recommended, with an interval of one day between coats.

 

Slowly add the curing agent component to the base component with good agitation. Continue mixing until the curing agent component is thoroughly dispersed. Allow the mixed formulation to stand for 30 to 60 minutes before application. Because of the limited pot life of the mixed formulation, do not mix more material than can be consumed during a working day. For spray application, reduce the formulation to the desired viscosity with a solvent blend of MIBK/ PGME/Toluene, 45/5/50% by weight.

 

Surfaces to be coated should be cleaned thoroughly. The preferred method for cleaning steel surfaces is sand- or grit-blasting. For application of this system in confined or poorly ventilated areas, we recommend the use of a fresh air-supplied hood and other protective clothing sufficient to cover the applicator’s entire body.

 

The application methods for an EPON Resin 1001F/EPI-CURE Curing Agent 3115 Aluminum Paint can involve the use of air or airless spray equipment. This system is normally air dried but can be force cured by baking if desired. This operation requires the use of well ventilated facilities (fresh air supply and adequate exhaust) along with the use of OSHA/NIOSH approved respiratory equipment for worker protection. In addition, the worker must wear appropriate protective clothing to avoid skin contact.

Cure Schedules

Table 2 / Cure Schedules

 

At ambient temperatures of 70°F to 80°F, this coating will dry to handle in about six hours. Physical properties will be fully developed in about two days. Chemical and solvent resistance will be fully developed in seven days. At ambient temperatures of 55°F, several weeks may be required to produce full cure, as the adduct curing agent used in the formulation has low volatility and will remain in the film to react with the epoxy resin.
