SIGMA SILICONE ACRYLIC

7502
February 2003

DESCRIPTION Single pack silicone acrylic topcoat. PROPERTIES Temperature resistance up to 250C. Completely oil free and non-saponifiable. High chemical and solvent resistance. Very good gloss retention. Weather resistant Colours are stable up to 200C. USES On all metals, concrete, asbestos, cement or lagged surfaces where colour is required at temperatures up to 250C e.g. compressors, heat exchangers, reactors, ducting, etc. It is particularly suitable in chemical plants due to its good all round resistance. LIMITATIONS Does not cure fully below 150C Choice of colours is limited above 200C since there are few pigments that withstand these temperatures.

ESTIMATING PRACTICAL SPREADING RATE (P.S.R.) The P.S.R. is calculated as follows: 1. To be above the specified minimum, the operator must aim slightly high. There will also be some unevenness and single double and treble overlaps depending on the complexity of the surface. A reasonable allowance is 30% up to 50m D.F.T. and 20% for 55m and above. 2. There is inescapable wastage overspray etc. Allow 5% for brush/roller (95% utilisation) 30% for spray (70% utilisation). EXAMPLE A primer, 48% volume solids to a minimum D.F.T. of 35m. On 1m, 1Lt wet gives 1000m (or 1mm) On 1m, 1Lt dries gives 480m D.F.T. i.e Specified min. 35m D.F.T. Add 30% operator excess 11 (smooth steel) total 46m To fill 50m profile (blasted steel) total 25 71m 480 46 = 10,4m/)

AIRLESS SPRAY Use 0,013 orifice with angle suited to the size of the workpiece.

BRUSH/ROLLER Suitable for small areas and piping but difficult to lap on large surfaces.

The utilisation of 85% and 70% are applied to these figures to give the brush and spray values.

APPLICATION By its nature SILICONE ACRYLIC will normally be applied in situ after installation and making good damage to the primer

CONVENTIONAL SPRAY Preferred method. Ready to use.
