E100 Moisture Cured Urethane Aluminum & Steel Primer Finish Coat

E100 Moisture Cured Urethane Aluminum & Steel Primer/Finish is a single component High Performance Coating designed to give unsurpassed performance with excellent corrosion and chemical resistance over sound, tightly adhered rusty steel, metal, aluminum, weathered galvanized steel and fiberglass surfaces.

Able to withstand intermittent dry temperatures up to 400F.  Cure in extreme temperatures down to 18ºF and apply in temperatures up to 140ºF. This low viscosity, high “wetting” coating undergoes a rapid molecular weight change as it polymerizes into a high molecular weight finish which provides excellent corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance. Its resistance to creeping, undercutting, and blistering is superior to epoxy primers.

E100 is also a barrier primer or tie coat to prevent lifting of strong solvent top coats over conventional coatings, and most chemical coatings. Has excellent chemical resistance as a Finish Coat to protect metal surfaces in chemical plants, refineries, pulp and paper mills, waste and water treatment plants, electric generating stations, fertilizer plants, food processing, pharmaceutical, ore processing operations, marine installations, etc.

Most generic types of chemical or conventional coatings may also be applied over E100 with excellent adhesion.

Excellent as a universal primer for metal, steel, fiberglass, weathered galvanized metal. Also over old coatings and for polyurethane foam protection. For use over sound, tightly adherent rust where only wire brush or hand tool cleaning is feasible. For remedial painting of fences, metal buildings, hand and guard rails, pumps, pipelines, grating, and other hard to clean surfaces.

E100 is a Fast Cure product for cold weather applying to surfaces down to 38° (needs to remain at this temp or above for at least 1 hour) and then during curing process temperatures further dropping ok to as low as 18°F.

Available in 1 quart, 1 gallon and 25 gallon (25 gallons only ships LTL Freight).  Aluminum color.

PRIMER: None

TOPCOAT: Most Epoxy, Urethane Alkyds, Silicone, Enamels and Acrylic topcoats

MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

SURFACE PREPARATION Steel For best results, sand blast to a SSPC-SP6 “commercial” blast finish.  Where blasting is not appropriate, remove all loose rust and mill scale by power wire brushing or hand tool cleaning.  A tightly adherent rusty surface is acceptable.

Galvanized Steel – Aluminum

  • New – Brush blast per SSPC-SP7 before applying E100.
  • Old, Weathered, or Rusty – Remove all oil, grease, dirt, and other foreign matter.  Surface should be reasonably clean, dry, and free of contaminants.  Remove all loose rust, etc., as outlined above under steel

Previously Painted Surfaces Remove all loose, peeling, or blistered paint, and any other surface contaminants.  Make sure surface is sound and dry.  Apply a test patch of E100 over existing coating to insure good adhesion.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS E100 is made ready for use by stirring so that the aluminum pigment is thoroughly dispersed in the resin and a uniform “silver” color is achieved.  Do not use a paint shaker.  When used over a period of time, stir occasionally to maintain uniform mix.  Thinning is not usually necessary.  If needed, use up to 10% SA-50 Urethane Reducer which is a water free grade.  Always keep partially used containers tightly sealed to prevent air moisture from reacting with the material and forming a tough skin.   Skin can be removed and remaining material used.

NOTE:  Always wear protective gloves and clothing while mixing and applying E100.  Do not get on skin.  E100 is difficult to remove.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE  E100 may be applied by brush, roll, or spray.  For rolling, use a ¼” – 3/8” shed resistant phenolic core cover.  When brushing, use a bristle brush.  For spray it is important that a moisture/oil trap be used on incoming air and that fluid lines be flushed first with an anhydrous solvent (water free) such as S-74.  Also, flush every 1-2 hours during use to keep lines clean from material build up.  Required equipment is as follows:

  1. Airless Spray – Use a minimum 20:1 ratio pump with 80-100 psi inbound air. Recommend a .013” – .017:” tip.   Adjust pressure for proper atomization based on selected tip.
  1. Convention Spray – Use a dual regulated pot with 15-25 psi fluid pressure and 40-50 psi atomization pressure.  A Binks #18 with a tip/air cap is recommended.

When spraying, use a 50% overlapping crosshatch pattern to minimize the occurrence of pinholes.  Do not apply to surfaces below 18°F or above 140°F.  Do not apply over dew or frost.  The surface should be dry and at least 5°F above the dew point.

RECOAT TIME Based on temperature of 75°F and 50% R.H. (relative humidity), E100 is tack free in 1-2 hours and may be overcoated in 2-3 hours.  Always check for fingernail hardness.  For maximum adhesion, recoat no longer than 6 hours at 75°F and 50% R.H.  High temperatures and humidity will shorten recoat time.  When applying conventional paints (e.g., Alkyds, Silicone, Enamels and Acrylics) E100 must be top coated as soon as E100 has dried.  If E100 gets rained on or has condensation form on its surface, a sweep blast is necessary to abrade the surface before applying a topcoat.

CAUTIONS E100 is flammable.  Keep away from all sources of ignition during mixing application and cure.  Contains aromatic polyisocyanates.  Proper ventilation is necessary when painting indoors or confined areas.  Vapors and spray mist may cause eye/skin irritation as well as allergic reactions.  Always wear protective clothing, goggles, impervious groves and use NIOSH approved respirators.   For industrial use only.  Keep out of reach of children.  This product is sold without warranty as to performance expressed or implied.  Users are urged to make their own tests to determine the suitability for their particular conditions.

LIMITATIONS:

  • Do not apply over frost, wet or damp surfaces or extremely high humidity conditions.
  • Not recommended as tank lining for constant immersion.
  • Must be recoated the same day.
  • Partially used containers must be reclosed tightly to prevent moisture in air from reacting with material and forming a tough skin.  Skin can be removed and remaining material used.  Be sure to stir.
