Micava 496L Self-levelling High Crosslinked Polymer/Flake Composite

Micava 496L Self-levelling High Crosslinked Polymer/Flake Composite is a self-levelling two-component phenlic epoxy vinyl ester resin composite which filled of flake materials. Micava 496L has excellent wetting properties, can be adhered to metals, concrete, ceramic, and glass-lined. Micava 496L also has properties of strong anti-chemical corrosion, anti organic and inorganic acid, and excellent resistance to most organic solvents.

Application Instructions:

  • Surface Treatment:
    Sandblasting the steel surface with chlorine-free abrasive. For external application, the surface should reach SSPC SP-10 standard, close to the white metal treatment standard. After sandblasting the surface, repair surface as soon as possible to prevent surface oxidation, then repair the damaged area properly.
  • Mixed:
    Resin :hardener mixed rate is 100:0.5~2 by weight. When the operating temperature is higher than 28℃, the recommended resin : hardener mixed rate is 100:0.5-1%. When the operating temperature is below 28℃, the recommended resin : hardener mixed rate is 100:1.5-2%. When the operating temperature is higher than 15℃, user can add hardener according to the size of the device and operating requirements.
  • Dilution:
    Do not dilute.
  • Application tools:
    Stir the resin first, then mix with the hardener well (about 3 minutes). Use a trowel or other tool to flatten brushing.
  • Application temperature:
    Material temperature: Keep at 55-95℉ (13-35℃)
    Substrate temperature: Keep at 45-105℉(7-40℃)
    The temperature difference between the substrate and the coating must not exceed 10℉(5℃)
  • Re-coating/curing time:
    Recoating in the time when material were still soft, within two hours, at 77ºF (25ºC). If the recoating time has been exceeded, polish the surface with sandpaper, grinding, or blasting.
  • Cleaning:
    Wash with methyl ethyl ketone or similar products.
