Typical uses

As a coating  for interior and exterior of pipeline and

storage tanks of  oils ,acid, alkali, solvents and chemical materials .

Application information

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.

Application equipment

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.

Caution

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

 and explosions.

5-Harmful or fatal if swallowed,immediately seek medical 

 assistance if swallowed.

6-Use fresh air masks and explosion proof equipment.

 
Application procedure

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 condition   

      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 %.

Surface preparation

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 .
