Coating Specification

If local temperatures are around freezing, long overcoat period, the systems, actual existing film esp. over coated epoxy layer, and proper surface preparation, coating application procedures should be selected, and then test in a controlled laboratory. Design factors, statements, specific recommendations should always be valued. Please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC Technical Department.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from contamination. High pressure or pressure with fresh water wash should be applied prior to the treatment or of 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. Steel products without mill scale: to be grinded by dynamic tools to meet the requirements of St3 grade in Sweden derusting standard. Steel products painted with plant primer: use slight grit blasting or dynamic tools to carry out secondary surface preparation to meet the requirements of St3 grade in Sweden derusting standard. For other surface treatments, please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC.


Circa 18 months at 25°C, stored at dry, shaded and ventilated condition. The container/paint, must be kept sealed and away from heat and ignition.

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.
