Product Data

According to specification.


Apply only on a dry and clean surface with a temperature above the dew point to avoid condensation.
Minimum temperature for curing is: 5C/41F. Maximum relative humidity: 75%. At the freezing point
and below be aware of the risk of ice on the surface, which will hinder adhesion. The film formation
may be adversely affected by light rain, high humidity and/or condensation during application and the
following interval after application: 10 hours , 20C/68F. In confined spaces provide adequate
ventilation during application and drying.


According to specification. Recommended systems are: HEMPADUR 45141/45143, HEMPADUR

MASTIC 45880/45881.

Colours/Colour stability:

Colour stability for some shades may be effected by exposure to harsh chemical atmospheres. This
does not affect the performance of the coating.
For certain colours extra coats may be necessary to obtain full opacity.For aluminium pigmented
shades scratching actions or high humidity/water may cause discolouration/disturbances of the surface.
This will have no influence on the performance. This phenomenon may be avoided by applying a clear
Weathering/service temperatures: At service temperatures above: 100C/212F, The product will become softer. Elevated temperature
may result in discolouration and loss of gloss.
Film thicknesses/thinning:
May be specified in another film thickness than indicated depending on purpose and area of use. This
will alter spreading rate and may influence drying time and overcoating interval. Normal range dry is:
30-60 micron/1.2-2.4 mils.
The type and amount of thinner depend on application conditions, application method, temperature,
ventilation, and substrate.
Storage Conditions:
Store in a dry place and keep the can tightly closed until use.
Curing agent:
CURING AGENT 98930 : is sensitive to moisture. Store in a dry place and keep the can tightly closed
until use. Open curing agent cans with caution as overpressure might exist. Even small traces of water
in the mixed paint will reduce the pot life and result in film defects.
Overcoating note:
A completely clean surface is mandatory to ensure intercoat adhesion, especially at long overcoating
intervals. Any dirt, oil, grease, and other foreign matter must be removed with suitable detergent
followed by (high pressure) fresh water cleaning. Salts to be removed by fresh water hosing.
To check whether the quality of the surface cleaning is adequate, a test patch may be relevant.
