Product Information


A ZINC RICH ANODE EPOXY PRIMER

Rustbuster's Zinc Rich Epoxy-Anode Primer offers the very best in cathodic and barrier protection to steel blast cleaned or power tool cleaned to St3 standard (read our article on surface preparation standards here). Once applied, it forms part of a paint system with our EM121 or Custom 421 epoxy paints or other high-performance coatings.

Epoxy-Anode is a self-repairing primer containing 93% zinc solids bound into an epoxy resin. If a scratch goes through the topcoat and primer back to bare metal, the zinc in the primer will react with the steel. This reaction will form zinc salts that will heal the scratch and maintain the barrier to prevent rusting. This is known as cathodic protection; an established way to control corrosion.

Product description

2 pack isocyanate-free epoxy zinc rich primer.

Pack description

A 1.25 ltr pack complete with base, hardener and 250 ml of thinner.

Mix ratio

Mix 4 parts component A (zinc) to 1 part component B (hardener) by volume.

Coverage

Can be applied to steel as low as -5c. The steel must be at least 3 degrees above the current dew point. (See our dew point calculator.)

Thinning

Use only the epoxy thinner supplied, from 5 to 20% max.

Application

Brush or spray on a blast cleaned surface.

Spraying

Minimum 1.8mm nozzle or a HB (high build) primer set up. Test atomisation on a test panel first. Viscosity will vary, i.e. thicker in colder temperatures. Data correct at 20c.

Pot life

Pot life is the time from mixing the two components together to the point at which the mixed paint is no longer useable. For Zinc Rich Epoxy-Anode, you have 2.5 hours pot life once mixed at 20c – longer at colder temperatures.

Shelf life

We recommend storing upside down in a dry place at around 20c. In these conditions the product has a shelf life of 12 months.

Do not store below 20c as this can affect performance.

Disposal

Allow the mix to cure in your mixing cup and throw away as dry waste.

Cleaning

Clean up with standard thinner or gun wash. Do not thin the paint with standard thinner as this will affect the paint cure.

Safety

Use in a well-ventilated atmosphere. Use a respirator face mask when spraying or brushing in an enclosed space. Please see the MSDS (material safety data sheet) in our data sheet area.

Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye protection.
