Both epoxy systems 4210/4907 and 4220/4908 are suitable. The surface should be prepared carefully by sand blasting and the application of a primer layer and at least two top layers, allowing an interval of 24 hours between the application of the primer and top layers.
Allow the surfaces to polymerize for 14 days before use.
There are many types of plastic, each of which reacts differently to contact with the solvents of STEEL IT; therefore, a general answer is not possible. The customer must in each case test the degree to which the solvents present in STEEL IT paints are suitable for the type of plastic. The surfaces must usually be well cleaned of oils, grease and forming material or rubbed smooth with sandpaper. It is recommended that a system with a low VOC value should be used if possible; in addition, primer may not be required in all cases.
STEEL IT cannot be colored because of its matrix structure of resin and stainless steel micro lamellae. If pigment were added, it would adhere between the micro lamellae, thus reducing the connection strength.
This is due to the special type of resin mix; however, it does not influence the protective characteristics of the paint. This effect disappears after a few cleaning processes of this type; the epoxy system becomes less sensitive.
Type 1002 has been resilient for more than 2.000 hours in a 5% salt solution. It is recommended that you apply a layer of primer and two covering layers of paint.
Yes, if the surface has been sand-blasted and an epoxy system is used.
Yes. It is recommended that you apply 3 covering layers of 1002 and do not use any primer.
This should not happen; however, if absolutely necessary, one component of one package can be mixed with the corresponding component of the other package; in such cases, it should be ensured that the production dates of the two components are less than six months apart.
Unless special lubricant types, such as Skydrol® are used, primer may be dispensed with; however, at least 3 layers of 1002 should be applied in this case.
Yes. It is recommended that the instructions of the manufacturer of the plastic metal regarding varnish be observed.
