Application instruction of energy saving liquid thermal insulation
PROTERM ANTICONDENSATION is designed to prevent condensation and icing on the refrigerating equipment, cisterns, capacities. It can be used on concrete and steel surfaces TO eliminate condensation at ambient temperature +5C/+60C. 3 mm of liquid insulation can substitute 16 mm of mineral wool.
Advantages: the duration of the application is fast, thermal insulation expenses is reduced.
1. Surface preparation.
The surface must be clean, dry and solid. Application on ice is not allowed. The equipment has to be shut down.
Weak and absorbent surface must be primed. Remove loose sections, point cracks, oily inclusions, to reduce the material consumption use cement and plaster to repair the surface.
2. Preparation of Insulating Coating
PROTERM ANTICONDENSATION is ready to use. Prior to application stir up and add some distilled water if required. Splitting into fractions in the containers is possible in case of extended storage period.
3. Coating Application.
Use soft brush with long natural bristles on small surfaces or areas of irregular shape. Surface of 100 m2 and more can be coated by airless sprayer with air pressure up to 60-80!!! to prevent damage of microsphere.
Application conditions: surface temperature +5° C..+150°C. Ambient temperature is +5C/+60C. Humidity – less than 85%. Working temperature is -60°C to + 200 ° C
Apply 1 mm layer at a time and let it dry for 24 hours (less than 85% humidity, ambient temperature +18+20°C) before next application. Avoid working in humid weather.
AVOID EXCESSIVE AGITATION!!!
If drill is used, the maximum permissible agitating rate is 150 rpm.
Use vertical travel of the blade to immerse the stiffened part into liquid, switch on the drill and start to rotate the blade slowly to mix the lumps with the liquid. Keep mixing until the product becomes sour cream-like. Approximate time of mixing for the drill 4-7 minutes, for manual mixing 7-10 minutes. If condensate is supposed to be removed, the material shall be mixed with minimum amount of water and with maximum interlayer interval.
Consumption: 1 l per 1 m2 to get 1 mm coating.
4. PROTERM ANTICONDENSATION Handling Safety Measures
4.1 Personal Protection
The product is safe under normal conditions. No respirators are required for work in a well-ventilated premise or outdoors. Use standard respirators in a premise without ventilation. Protect eyes with chemical goggles. Ensure access to flow water for eyes washing. Use chemical protective gloves and protective clothes to protect skin.
4.2 Emergency Conditions
In case of eyes contact, immediately wash the eyes with flow water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, consult the doctor. In case of skin contact, wash the skin with soap and water. Wash dirty clothes prior to re-use.
5. Storage and transportation
Shelf life is 12 months from the date of manufacture in an airtight containers under +5C till +60C, humidity 80%, far from direct sunlight.
Transportation can be provided by any means of transport between 7 and 30C far from direct sunlight. Packing should provide the right placement of the buckets and their safety. The material will be spoiled in case the bucket is broken.
In case of noncompliance with application and storage instructions, the manufacturer shall not be liable for the quality of coating.
