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

Surface must be clean, dry, and in sound condition. Remove all oil, dust, grease, dirt, loose rust, and other foreign material to ensure adequate adhesion.

Minimum recommended surface preparation:

Carbon Steel
St 2 (ISO 8501-1)
Sa 2 (ISO 8501-1)
Stainless Steel
The surface shall be hand or machine abraded with non-metallic abrasives or bonded fiber machine or hand abrasive pads to impart a scratch pattern to the surface and to remove all polish from the surface.
Abrasive blast cleaning to achieve a surface profile using non-metallic abrasive media which is suitable to achieve a sharp and angular surface profile.
Galvanized Steel
The surface shall be clean, dry and appear with a rough and dull profile.
Light brush blasting using nonmetallic abrasive leaving a clean, rough and even pattern.
Coated Surfaces
Clean, dry and undamaged compatible coating (ISO 12944-4 6.1.4)
Clean, dry and undamaged compatible coating (ISO 12944-4 6.1.4)
Low pressure water washing to a rough, clean, dry and laitance free surface.       
Minimum 4 weeks curing. Moisture content maximum 5 %. Prepare the surface by means of enclosed blast shot or diamond grinding and other appropriate means to abrade the surrounding concrete and to remove laitance.

Optimum performance, including adhesion, corrosion protection, heat resistance and chemical resistance is achieved with recommended surface preparation. For other surface treatments, please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC.


Circa 24 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.
