|GENERIC TYPE: Baking cross-linked epoxy-phenolic.
RECOMMENDED USAGE: Heresite EP-6308 coating is a high performance coating capable of providing economical protection in severe, and chemically corrosive environments. It is formulated explicitly for sustained immersion for tank linings, heat transfer equipment, spiral heat exchangers, fans, blowers, filter plates, tank cars, tank trailers, duct work, exhaust hoods, and other industrial equipment.
Heresite EP-6308 meets the requirements of the U.S. Federal Register, Food and Drug Regulations, Title 21, Chapter 1, Paragraph 75.300.
TEMPERATURE LIMITATIONS: Heresite EP-6308 accepts dry heat temperatures up to 400°F (204°C). Short excursions up to 450°F (232°C) will be tolerated.
DIRECT IMPACT (ASTM D-2794): 10 inch/lbs.
ADHESION (ASTM D-3359): 5
STANDARD COLOR: EP-6308 -- Tan
COVERAGE: Theoretical coverage -- 784 square feet per gallon per mil. Recommended total dry film thickness is 5.0 to 7.0 mils in a 3-4 coat system.
At 6 mils DFT average coverage would be 105 square feet per gallon. This includes a 20% loss factor.
SURFACE PREPARATION: Remove all oil, grease and other contaminants from the surface with an appropriate solvent, such as Heresite S-330.
STEEL: Surface profile or anchor pattern shall be 20-25% of the recommended dry film thickness.
IMMERSION: A white metal blast is required in accordance with NANCE #1 OR SSPC-SP-5-63 specifications.
NON-IMMERSION: A commercial blast is acceptable in accordance with NANCE #3 OR SSPC-SP-6-63 specifications.
PRIMER: Not Required
MIXING: Mix thoroughly, making sure all settled pigments are redispersed.
THINNER & CLEAN UP SOLVENT: Heresite S-330 Solvent
THINNING: The amount of thinner required is dependent upon temperature, ventilation,humidity, spray equipment used, and desired film thickness. Adjust viscosity to 30 to 40 Zahn Cup #2. Suggested thinning is 30-40% at 75°F (24°C).
To determine correct bake, saturate a cloth where acetone (S-275), rub coating lightly. Coating color should appear on cloth between coats, but not after final bake (cure).
RECOAT: After intermediate bake has cooled to 70°F (21°C).
STORAGE CONDITIONS: Coating should not be stored longer than 12 months at 70°F (21°C).
