As a coating for interior and exterior of pipeline and
storage tanks of oils ,acid, alkali, solvents and chemical materials .
This RANA CHEM’s product is a epoxy phenolic coating
which has excellent resistance to chemical material,
alkali , acid , oil and water .
To obtain the maximum performance for which this product
is formulated,strict adherence to all application,instructions,
precautions,conditions and limitations is necessary.
The following equipment is listed as a guide and suitable
equipment from other manufactures may be used.
Adjustments of pressure and change of tip size may be
needed to obtain the proper spray characteristics.
1-Airless spray: standard airless spray equipment having
a fine finish tip with a 0.4 mm to a 0.55 mm or larger.
2-Conventional spray: industrial equipment with suitable
aircap having a fluid tip with a 1.6-1.8 mm orifice .
3-Mixer: mixer must be powered by an air motor or an explosion
proof electric motor.
1-Handle with care.
2-Avoid inhalation of possible solvent vapours or
paint mist,as well as paint contact with skin and eyes.
3-Apply only in well ventilated areas and ensure that
adequate forced ventilation exists when paint applies is
In confined spaces or when the air is stagnant.
4-Always take precautions against the risks of fire
5-Harmful or fatal if swallowed,immediately seek medical
assistance if swallowed.
6-Use fresh air masks and explosion proof equipment.
1-Flush equipment with cleaner before use.
2-Stir resin to an even consistency with a power mixer.
3-Add cure to resin and continue stirring for 5 minutes.
Note: since the pot life is limited and shortened by high
Temperatures ,do not mix more material than will be used
In 4 hours at 25 °c.
4- Thinning with FARCO THINN 16 as needed for workability .
5-Stir during application to maintain uniformity of material
and apply a wet coat in even parallel passes after 20 minutes.
6-Clean all equipment with cleaner immediately after use.
Environmental temperature must be 10-40°c.
Surface temperature must be at least 3°c above dew point
to prevent condensation. At freezing temperature surface
must be free of ice and relative humidity below 80 %.
Sand blasting to standard of Sa 2.5 – Sa3 , SIS 05 5900 , ISO 8501-1.
The surface must be clean and dry .all dirt, grease and other
foreign materials ` should be removed .
