The STEEL-IT High Solids, High solids Epoxy System is a high-performance, two-coat barrier coating system that complies fully with the latest environmental regulations while maintaining the same high-performance profile and superior application characteristics associated with more traditional STEEL-IT compositions. Free of lead and chromium salt-based pigmentations, the system has VOC levels substantially less than all current regulated thresholds.
Both the primer and the finish afford optimal physical properties that improve adhesion and help the system withstand flexing and stretching. The cured film – pigmented with 316L stainless steel flakes for enhanced performance – is highly durable and resistant to the corrosive effects of oils, fats, spilled solvents, solvent fumes, alkalis and many dilute organic and inorganic acids. The system is suitable for use on ferrous and nonferrous substrates.
Engineered from the latest generation of low molecular weight epoxy, the system consists of a “high solids” barrier primer #4220 and a “high solids” stainless steel pigmented finish #4908. Available in a choice of two gallon or two quart kits, both the primer and finish are user-friendly coatings with excellent wetting characteristics and long pot life. They may be applied by a wide variety of techniques, including brush, roller, conventional airspray, airless and air-assisted airless applications. Spraying is the preferred method of application.
