Glo-Protect Flake Epoxy Coating
Glo-Protect Flake Epoxy Coating is a two pack low VOC high build mastic surface tolerant epoxy coating reinforced with chemically inert glass flake for application on manually cleaned steel surface for enhanced durability and corrosion resistance of steel structures in all corrosive environment including splash zone areas of offshore structures.
Glo-Protek HB Glass Flake Epoxy Coating can be applied over most of the tightly adhering aged coatings and concrete surface. It gives wear resistance and can withstand acid-fumes area. It widely used as maintenance painting for Drilling Rigs and Platforms Fertilizer Plants, Chemical Factories, Refineries, Petrochemical units, Railway Bridges, Marine & Port Installations.

Up to nine months as long as the sealed containers are kept under cover in a dry place under normal temperature conditions.
Remove grease oil etc by solvent wiping and water-soluble contaminants by fresh water hosing. Blast clean to Sa 2 1/2 grade minimum of Swedish specification SIS – 05 – 5900 - 1967.
If blast cleaning is not practical make full use of hand or power tools to remove loose rust / scale to St 2 or St 3 grade of Swedish specification SIS - 05 - 5900 - 1967.
Avoid polishing the steel surface. Surface should be clean and dry before application.

HEALTH & SAFETY:
As a general safety precaution, care should be taken to avoid contact of liquid paint with skin and eyes, and inhalation of solvent vapors or paint mist should be avoided. Air movement should be ensured with proper forced ventilation when applying the paint in confined spaces. Skin, eye and respiratory protection is always recommended at all times while coating.
