Application Procedures for 3MTM ScotchkoteTM
Epoxy Coating 162PW

Surface Preparation
Steel Surfaces – Steel surfaces should be abrasive blasted in accordance with NACE No 2/SSPC-SP10 Near White Metal, ISO 8501-1 grade Sa21?2 or equivalent. The blast profile is generally specified by the client, a typical profile is 75-100 microns. Where blast cleaning cannot be carried out the surface should be mechanically abraded to remove all loose scale and produce a surface which is clean, dry and free from rust or dust and provide a coarse surface profile.

Product Mixing
Scotchkote Epoxy Coating 162PW is a two component material comprising Part A (Base) and Part B (Activator) components which must be mixed together prior to use. Stir the contents of the Part A (Base) component, continue stirring and gradually add the total contents of the Part B (Activator) container, stir the combined mix until completely homogeneous.
The mixed materials should be used within 45 minutes of mixing at 20°C. This time will be reduced at higher temperatures and extended at lower temperatures.

Application Procedures
a) Multi Coat/Stripe Coat Applications.
Do not apply when the Relative Humidity exceeds 70% or when the surface to be coated is less than 3°C above the dew point. Minimum temperature for application and subsequent curing is 10°C.
b) Single Coat Application. Do not apply when the Relative Humidity exceeds 85% or when the surface to be coated is less than 3°C above the dew point. Minimum temperature for application is 7°C.
Scotchkote Epoxy Coating 162PW is primarily designed for application by brush or roller. Good quality brushes or short to medium pile rollers should be used for these methods of application The product should be applied to give a uniform even coating thickness and optimum results are achieved when both material and substrate temperatures above 15°C.
Clean all equipment immediately after use with 3MTM ScotchkoteTM Thinners SA65.

Tank Reline completed a project for us recently. They were very professional, organised and most importantly in today’s climate very competitively priced. From start to finish the project ran perfectly and they always recommend relining tanks over a full replacement, I would use Tank Reline every time. Also we and our client were very impressed with the photographic reports produced and thought this was a good touch to a great job.
