PhilAtria Plastofond AS 

Overview

Double-component, epoxy-polyamide, high thickness, intermediate primer – it can be applied at low temperatures and with high humidity. PhilAtria Plastofond AS is a “surface tolerant”, epoxy-polyamide resins based coating, with braking, lamellar pigments. This composition provides the product with excellent and easy applicability and maintenance, strong adhesion on uncoated substrate or surfaces primed with epoxy primers or organic/inorganic zincking products. The dry film is hard – elastic, waterproof, and extremely filling. It can be over-applied with different kinds of finishes i.e. chlorine-caoutchouc, vinyl, epoxy, and polyurethane finishes. The product is a heavy duty metal primer and designed to be used with high performance non-skid decking products for marine naval vessels, warships and various car decks. It meets the low volatile organic compounds requirements i.e. California and NAVSEA air pollution guidelines average 250 gr/ltr. It meets the extreme demands of a system in marine environments and provides excellent protection of surfaces against aggressive and corrosive environment.

Purpose

Suitable for iron surfaces or external substrates of industrial and sea structures, which have been primed with zincking products. It can also be applied over concrete, wooden, and light alloy surfaces.

Tender Item: Application of PhilAtria Plastofond AS, double-component, waterproof, high thickness, epoxy-polyamide resin based intermediate coat, with braking, lamellar pigmentation, to be applied over external and internal surfaces with a thickness of 80 micron- dry film - consumption of 0,190 kg/Sq.m., excluded practical operating loss.

Surface Preparation

New iron: sanded and properly primed with an epoxy primer (Primepox , Mioxide HB) or with an organic (Zincometal, Monozinc) or inorganic zincking primer (Inorzinc PLV). Apply one coat of PhilAtria Plastofond AS with a minimum thickness of 80 – 100 micron – dry film. Painted iron: remove any trace of old peeling paintwork, sand the whole surface to be treated, apply one coat of epoxy primer (Primepox) over uncoated areas . After drying, apply one or two coats of PhilAtria Plastofond AS. Allow drying and apply a proper finish paint. Galvanized iron: wash off any trace of oil or grease with a thinner or alkaline cleansing compounds. Sand slightly to remove the glossy layer. Apply PhilAtria Plastofond AS in one or two coats and coat with a proper finish. New wood: make sure that the surface has perfectly seasoned, sand to remove any imperfections, apply one coat of hydrodilutable, double-component, 30% water thinned primer, Idrosem, or a double-component, thinner based, 20-30% solvent thinned primer (Epofond). After drying, apply PhilAtria Plastofond AS, with a thickness of 80 – 100 micron – dry film and apply, afterwards, a proper finish. Old wood: remove any trace of old peeling paintwork, sandblast the whole surface to be treated, remove any trace of dirt or dust. Apply a first coat of 20-30% solvent thinned PhilAtria Plastofond AS, over uncoated areas. After drying, even out any imperfections with an epoxy or polyester putty, sandblast and clean. Apply PhilAtria Plastofond AS and coat, afterwards, with a proper finish. Masonry works: make sure that the surface has seasoned for at least 28 days, that it is dry and free from salt efflorescence. Mechanically remove any peeling parts, remove dust and apply one coat of doublecomponent, water based primer Idrosem WP, and even out any imperfections with smoothing product CLS 5 or with the epoxy putty Epostuc Floor. Sandblast and apply one or two coats of PhilAtria Plastofond AS.

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 Phila Coatings (USA) Inc. 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 Phila Coatings (USA) Inc. won’t bear any liabilities from the condition whether the data could reflect the objective status of the actual application circumstance or not.
