Surface preparation

All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from contamination. The surface should be assessed and treated in accordance with ISO 8504.

Bare steel

Cleanliness: Blast cleaning to Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007). Roughness: using abrasives suitable to achieve grade Fine to Medium G (30-50 µm, Ry5) (ISO 8503-2).

Other surfaces

The coating may be used on other substrates. Please contact your local Jotun office for more information.

Condition during application

The temperature of the substrate should be at least 3°C above the dew point of the air, temperature and relative humidity measured in the vicinity of the substrate. Relative humidity in the air should not exceed 85% prior to application. Recommended steel temperature: 30-40°C.

Application methods

Spray Use two component heated plural spray unit or modified airless spray (with heating equipment).

Contact your local Jotun office for further recommendations.

Application data

Mixing ratio (volume) 2:1

Mixing 2 parts Comp. A (base) to be mixed thoroughly with 1 part Jotapipe FC 400, Comp. B (curing agent).

Pot life (23°C) 1 hour (reduced at higher temperature).

Cleaner Use Jotun Thinner No. 17 for cleaning equipment after application.

Guiding data airless spray

Pressure at nozzle 18 - 30 MPa (2600 - 4300 psi)

Nozzle tip 0.46 mm - 0.60 mm (0.018" - 0.024")

Filter Filters with a minimum 100 mesh are recommended. Check to ensure that filters are clean.

Drying time

Drying times are generally related to air circulation, temperature, film thickness and number of coats, and will be affected correspondingly. The figures given in the table are typical with:

  • Good ventilation (Outdoor exposure or free circulation of air)

  • Typical film thickness

  • One coat on top of inert substrate

The given data must be considered as guidelines only. The actual drying time/times before recoating may be shorter or longer, depending on film thickness, ventilation, humidity, underlying paint system, requirement for early handling and mechanical strength etc. A complete system can be described on a system sheet, where all parameters and special conditions could be included.
