Organic Zinc Rich Epoxy Primer
EPOZINC primer is a high quality zinc rich epoxy primer formulated to provide excellent adhesion combined with sacrificial protection to exposed steel reinforcement where surface preparation may be less than ultimate.
Provides positive protection of steel components against corrosion
Excellent for adhesion to surfaces cleaned to commercial blast
Excellent product for repair of zinc rich coating or deteriorated galvanized steel surfaces
Formulated for use with Colmef concrete repair products
Two components to insure higher curing process in humid environment
High solid content of zinc which provides an adequate protection with one coat
EPOZINC is supplied as a two component 1 liter kit.
Store in original sealed container in dry covered warehouse at a temperature between +5°C and +40°C and a relative humidity below 70%. The product shelf life is 12 months if stored as recommended.

EPOZINC is composed of two components that must be mixed well before use. Stir components A & B individually then pour component B into component A and mix thoroughly using a slow speed drill at the rate of 200-300rpm. Scrape the sides and the bottom of the container and again mix until a lump free homogenous mix is achieved.
The mixture must be applied by brush onto the prepared surface. Make sure the whole iron surface is completely covered. Repair mortars can be applied as soon as EPOZINC is dry.
In order to guarantee the necessary protection of substrate, it is advisable to apply two coats of EPOZINC. Second coat should be applied on the first coat once it is totally dry. Use SOLVENTE to dilute the product if necessary at a mix rate of 10%.
In case the EPOZINC is used as a primer, allow the primer to fully cure prior to apply finishing top coat.
Do not apply thick coat in single application in order to allow all the primer to cure properly. For built up thickness, successive coatings of EPOZINC can be applied.
Clean all tools and equipment used in application using SOLVENTE 10 before the product dries.
The reinforcing bars must be clean from weak concrete, grease substances and rust. Sand blasting would be advisable for cleaning deep rust. Continue cleaning until all rust is removed. Exposed reinforcement can also be cleaned mechanically or by using a stiff brush tool.
During application, wear appropriate protective clothing, goggles, gloves and respiratory equipment if necessary.
In case of contact with skin, rinse with water and again wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical advice accordingly.
If ingested, obtain medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
EPOZINC is flammable hence keep away from sources of ignition.
