BASE 85539 with CURING AGENT 97531

Description: HEMPADUR 85530 is an amine-adduct, cured epoxy coating. It is a hard, impact and
abrasion resistant coating e.g. for exterior pipelines. The material has excellent
properties in respect of temperature resistance, mechanical and chemical resistance
and cathodic disbondment resistance.

Recommended use: For new constructions as well as field-applied renovation and repair coating.
As a self-primed, high build coating primarily for protection of interior of steel pipes and
of exterior of steel pipes in severely corrosive environment, including permanent
HEMPADUR 85530 is an excellent material for repair and can be applied to
lines while in service with surface temperatures up to 90°C/194°F.
Certificates/Approvals: Saudi Aramco approved product under Engineering Standard APCS-113.

Product Data Sheet


SURFACE Remove any oil, grease and other contaminants with a suitable detergent, followed by high fresh
PREPARATION: water hosing to remove salts and other contaminants.
Abrasive blasting to Sa 2½, (ISO 8501-1:1988), with a surface profile equivalent to Rugotest No.
3 BN 10, Keane-Tator Comparator 3.0 G/S or ISO Comparator, rough Medium (G).

APPLICATION The surface must be completely dry and clean with a temperature above the dew point to avoid
CONDITIONS: condensation. Use only when application and curing can proceed at temperatures above
5°C/41°F. The temperature of the paint itself should be above 15°C/59°F. The best result is
obtained at 20-30°C/68-86°F. Maximum relative humidity 85%.
In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation. For interior pipelines, blow hot dry air through the
pipeline immediately after application to remove solvent fumes and speed up drying process.


SUBSEQUENT None, or according to specification.


Film thickness: 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 recoating interval. Normal range
dry is 350-625 micron/14.0-25.0 mils.
Recoating: The indicated recoat intervals will normally only apply in connection with touch-up of too low dry
film thickness. If the maximum recoat interval is exceeded, roughening of the surface is necessary
to ensure adhesion.
Note: HEMPADUR 85530 is for professional use only.
