PhilaCep One-Coat PCP


PhilaCep One-Coat PCP is a two-component all-in-one anticorrosive epoxy coating.

Chelate epoxy penetration is the all-purpose, anticorrosive coating that makes surface preparation a breeze. A unique coupling agent penetrates and interacts with rust, stabilizing its effect and forming a strong, durable surface that impedes corrosion. Economy is  secured by the unique single-coat, self-priming effect. PhilaCep One Coat PCP goes on following simple hand-tool cleaning and can even be applied on bare rusty metal. PhilaCep One Coat PCP is perfect for all ship surfaces – interior, exterior, immersed or non-immersed.

The lasting, superior epoxy grade resists mechanical impact, abrasion and chemicals such as oils and solvents. The wetting out property is excellent. PhilaCep One Coat PCP can be applied over all paints and can be recoated freely with any desired paint. Complies with section 175.300 of the quote of Federal Regulation (FDA) in respect to carriage of dry food stuffs in space with an internal surface area larger than 10,750 sqft.

PhilaCep One Coat PCP displays very good compatibility with various well-known producers.

Pot Life: 5°C: 10 hours, 23°C: 6 hours, 30°C: 4 hours

Curing Time: Within 2 days at 23°C (fully cured).

Optimal Application Conditions:

The temperature of the substrate should be at least 3°C above the dew point of the air. Temperature and relative humidity should be measured near the substrate. The maximum recommended surface temperature is approx. 40°C. Higher steel temperatures are acceptable provided dry-spray is avoided by proper spray application and extra thinning if required. In extreme cases it may be necessary to reduce film thickness to avoid sagging. When applying the paint in confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying. The temperature of the mixed paint should be at least 15°C, otherwise extra solvent may be required to obtain a proper application viscosity.

Drying and Over-Coating Conditions

Temperature of basis material    10℃    23℃    30℃    Semi cure (1)    20 hours    9 hours    5 hours    Repainting interval (Max) (2)    14 days    10 days    7 days    Recoating for repairs    Unlimited

(1) The given data must be considered only as a guidelines. The actual drying time/times before recoating may be shorter or longer, depending on film thickness, ventilation, humidity, preceding paint system etc.

(2) The surface should be dry and free from contaminants prior to overcoating. The best intercoat adhesion is achieved when the subsequent coat is applied before the preceding coat is fully cured. After prolonged exposure it may be necessary to roughen the surface to ensure intercoat adhesion. When recoating with single pack products, maximum recoat interval is limited to 16-24

hours. When in doubt, consult with our technical dept.

Coating Specification

Long overcoat period if temperatures are around freezing point. Proper selection of the systems, coating application procedures and surface preparation are made depending on actual existing film. Best specific design factors and conditions are tested in a controlled laboratory. Consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC Technical Department before and throughout testing process.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from contamination. High pressure freshwater wash should be conducted prior to the application. Steel products with mill scale: shot blasting or grit blasting should meet the requirements of Sa1 grade in Sweden derusting standard at least.

Surface preparation for Steel 

Oil and grease should be removed by solvent cleaning according to SSPC-SP1. Remove weld spatter and smooth weld seams and sharp edges as applicable. Abrasive blasting: Sa2,5 – ISO 8501:1. Apply this product immediately after the steel has been blasted and the quality of preparation has been approved.

Surface preparation for Repair

Corroded areas should be power tool cleaned to ISO-St3 or blast cleaned to ISO-Sa2 or better. Existing systems should be dry and free from loose paint, salt, grease and other contaminants prior to overcoating.

For other surface treatments, please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC.


Circa 24 months at 25°C, stored in a dry, shaded and ventilated condition. The container/paint, must be kept sealed and away from heat and ignition.

Health and Safety

Prior to use, obtain, consult and follow the Material Safety Data Sheet for this product concerning health and safety information. Read carefully and conform to precautions on MSDS and packing vessels. To avoid eye and skin contact, tools such as gloves, goggles and face mask etc. should be used during work with product (proper safety measures should be taken according to construction methods and circumstances).

Limitation of liability

All information is given for guidance only and is subject to regional variation depending upon local climate and environmental condition. An excessive film thickness delays the final curing and creates sagging. Over coating interval will increase with the number of paint layers and the thickness of the paint film. For recommended paints at special circumstances, please consult with our Philadelphia Coatings LLC. Apply in good weather. The relative humidity must not exceed 80% temperature of the surface to be coated must be at least 3°C above the dew point. All data from the tests is obtained under lab conditions, so Philadelphia Coatings LLC won’t bear any liabilities from the condition whether the data could reflect the objective status of the actual application circumstance or not.
