Application instruction of energy saving liquid thermal insulation
Coating of the engineering equipment operated in aggressive environments.
Rust protection of metal constructions of residential and non-residential buildings.
Indoor and outdoor works on metal, concrete, brick with operating temperatures from -60 to + 150 ° C.
Can be applied on any corroded metal surfaces or used as a primer layer to provide additional corrosion protection. Besides it acts as a heat barrier.
1. Surface preparation.
The surface must be clean, dry and solid. Weak and absorbent surfaces must be primed.
2. Preparation of Insulating Coating
PROTERM ANTICORE is ready to use. Prior to application stir up and add some distilled water as required. Amount of water depends on the temperature of the base surface, humidity and further operation. When the material is applied on surface with temperature range +7°С…+80°С, the amount of water added to the material should not exceed 5% for brushing and 3% for mechanical application (by airless sprayer). When the material is applied on surface with temperature above +80°С, the temperature first has to be reduced by few layers of PROTERM diluted with 40-50% of distilled water (please consult the local representative office for more details). Splitting into fractions in the containers is possible in case of extended storage period.
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 inter layer interval.
3. Coating Application.
Use soft brush with long natural bristles to apply PROTERM 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!!! bar in order not to damage microsphere.
Application conditions: surface temperature is +5ºС…+150ºС, avoid working in humid weather: the material dissolves with water and will not dry. Ambiance temperature is above +5ºС. Humidity is not more than 85%.
The thickness of 1 layer is 1 mm. Complete curing time of one coating (1 mm thick) is 24 hours minimum at room temperature (+18 – +20°С and humidity less than 85%) Consumption is 1 liter per 1 miter to get 1 mm of coating.
ATTENTION!!! Application on the surface with +80-90 ºС and above: the material has to be diluted with water. It is recommended to use PROTERM diluted 40-50% with water as a primer. The layer thickness should not be more than 0,5 mm within 24 hours.
The hotter surface the more water is required. Apply the diluted material with quick and short strokes to obtain a very thin coat. The drying time of every coat is 1 hour minimum. Keep applying such coats until the material stops boiling on the surface and then let it dry for 24 hours. After 24 hours material has to be applied less diluted (5-10% of water).
The application on the surface temperature below +90ºС: quantity of water should be 5-10% of PROTERM volume.
To determine coat thickness of 0.4-0.5 mm, you can use thickness gauge, material consumption rate 0.5 l per 1 m2 or the value of material optical thickness (the underlay must not show through the material). The material consumption rate depends on the surface type and method of application. The total coat thickness and number of coats can be calculated. Please refer to your regional representative.
4. PROTERM Anticor 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. In case of inhaling, go to open air. The product is nonflammable in liquid state. In case of burning of structures with coating applied, use water, foam, dry chemicals or carbon dioxide for firefighting. Use any absorbent material like sand, soil, etc. to remove spills of the product.
5. Storage and transportation
Shelf life- 12 months from the date of manufacture in an airtight containers with ambiance temperature less than 60C, humidity 85%, 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 if the bucket is broken.
In case of noncompliance with application and storage instructions, the manufacturer shall not be liable for the quality of coating.
