SOLVENT FREE ULTRA CHEMICAL RESISTANT VINYL ESTER BASED COATING FOR INDUSTRIAL FLOORS AND STEEL SURFACES
SAFECORE VC is rapid curing, 2 pack Vinyl Ester based coating with outstanding resistance to aggressive acids, solvents and alcohols and other chemicals. This product is designed where high chemical resistance is of primary requirement. Due to its high molecular weight and low permeability, it will withstand exposure to a broad range of acids, caustics, and solvents. SAFECORE VC is designed for coating primary and secondary containment, trenches, troughs, pump pads, equipment, and structural members.
• Excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals.
• High temperature performance; in many cases up to 350°F (spills) or 400°F (dry heat).
• Excellent adhesion to steel & concrete.
• Vary rapid cure, even at low temperature.
• Hygienic and easily cleaned.
• Tough durable and abrasion resistant.
• Slip resistant options.
• Can be used as an internal lining for concrete or steel storage tanks.
• SAFECORE VC is designed for coating primary and secondary containment, trenches, troughs, pump pads, equipment,
and structural members.
• For chemical resistant floor/wall coating for chemical and printing works, bottling and canning factories, pharmaceutical production etc.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICATION
Steel – The surface should be free of oil, grease, dirt, mill scale, rust, corrosion products, oxides, paint and other foreign matter. In absence of blast cleaning, prepare the metal surface by wire brushing, sanding. The surface should be pretreated with emery paper or all rust should be removed with SAFECORE RR.
Concrete Surface: Concrete shall be minimum of 21 days old and/or residual moisture content shall be below 6%. Ensure that the concrete is clean and free from dust, laitance oil, curing compound, existing paint finishes etc. Blow holes and defective concrete should be made good using a proprietary void filler FAIRSCREED VF.
The following application procedure should be followed:
PRIMER COAT(SAFECORE VC PRIMER) :
MIXING : SAFECORE VC PRIMER is supplied as ready to use in pre-weighed packs of base and hardener for easy application on site mixing. Pour the hardener into base cane, mix well using paddle attach to an electric drill until uniform colour is produced.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE : SAFECORE VC PRIMER may be applied by brush , roller or airless spray to give continuous coating on prepared surface. After proper surface preparation apply one coat of SAFECORE VC PRIMER and allow it to dry completely.
NOTE ; For technical details refer the Separate Technical Datasheet of SAFECORE VC PRIMER.
SECOND COAT(SAFECORE VC) :
MIXING : SAFECORE VC is supplied as ready to use in pre-weighed packs of base and hardener for easy application on site mixing. Pour the hardener into base cane, mix well by chemical means until uniform color is obtained.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE : When primer dries completely apply one coat of SAFECORE VC . SAFECORE VC may be applied by brush , roller or airless spray to give continuous coating. After application allow it to dry completely. For slip resistant finish broadcast SAFECORE ANTI-SLIP GRAINS immediately after first coat application. After proper curing( at least 10 hrs) brush off excess aggregate and apply Second final coat of SAFECORE VC.
CURING: Allow to cure for minimum of 12 hours @300C for light foot traffic and 24 hours prior to vehicular traffic. Allow a minimum of 3 days cure at 300C for optimum chemical resistance.
CLEANING : Tools and mixers should be cleaned with SAFECORE TOOL CLEANER immediately.
PACKING & COVERAGE : SAFECORE VC is available in 1Kg & 5Kg packing . A 5Kg pack is sufficient to coat 5-6m2 of surface with the 1 coat treatment with DFT of 150-200 microns.
SHELF LIFE & STORAGE: SAFECORE VC will have a shelf life of 3 months in unopened containers when kept in a dry condition at temperature between 50C to 450 C. Storage at higher temperature or high humidity may reduce shelf life.
