BASE 87549 with CURING AGENT 97740

HEMPADUR 87540 is an amine-cured, solvent-free epoxy paint which cures to a very strong and hard coating. As a self-primed, high-build coating for the protection of the exterior of buried steel pipes, valves, fittings etc. operating at elevated temperatures in severely corrosive environments. As a repair system for pipelines.

The product complies with Aramco Engineering Standard APCS 113. (See REMARKS overleaf).

The physical constants stated are nominal data according to the HEMPEL Group's approved formulas. They are subject to normal manufacturing tolerances. Further reference is made to "Explanatory Notes" in the HEMPEL book. The theoretical spreading rate has been calculated on the basis of a 100% solids volume.

Abrasive grit blasting to minimum Sa 2. Recommended surface profile is Rz 75-100 micron/3-4 mils, corresponding to Rugotest No. 3, BN10a, Keane-Tator Comparator, minimum 3.0 G/S, or ISO Comparator, MEDIUM (G). Oil and grease must be removed with suitable detergent, salts and other contaminants by (high pressure) fresh water cleaning prior to blasting. After blasting clean the surface carefully from abrasives and dust. Use only where application and curing can proceed at temperatures above 10C/50F. Apply only on a clean and dry surface with a temperature above the dew point to avoid condensation. The maximum temperature of the substrate should not be more than approx 100C/210F. The paint temperature should not exceed 80C/176F. Relative humidity max. 85%. None None.


PRECEDING COAT: SUBSEQUENT COAT: REMARKS: Film thicknesses: Substrate temperature, film forming properties: Recoating:

May be specified in another film thickness than indicated. This will alter spreading rate and may influence drying time and overcoating interval. Irrespective of substrate temperature, make sure that the paint material is applied in a uniform film free of pinholes, dry-spray or other irregularities. The indicated overcoating interval will normally only apply in connection with touch-up of too low dry film thickness. If the maximum overcoating interval is exceeded, roughening of the surface is necessary to ensure adhesion. Any reference to a company standard or specification in this Technical Product Data sheet shall not be construed as a recommendation by that company to purchase. HEMPADUR 87540 is for professional use only. April 2003 - 8754050700CR002 HEMPEL A/S
