shape and size of the substrate, gun type and settings, gloss level of the product and the colour selected.

Mixing Stir separately Part “A” thoroughly for 2-3 minutes. Ensure only the
quantity that can be applied within the normal pot life is mixed at any one time.
Stir thoroughly with a flat blade stirrer (not round) before use.
MIX BY VOLUME 4 part of “A” to 1 part of “B”.

Thin up to 30%, depending on application technique

Brushing/Rolling: Thin up to 30% with 900S solvent
Spraying: Thin up to 30% with 830S solvent
Electrostatic: Thin up to 25% with 825S electrostatic solvent

USE 830S IN THIS RANGE FOR SPRAYING
USE 900S IN THIS RANGE FOR BRUSHING & ROLLING
USE 950S AS A RETARDER

CORRECT USE PROTECTS AGAINST:
• Carbonation of concrete and resultant damage.
• Effects of graffiti, aggressive chemicals, pollution, salt air and acid rain.
• Influence of metabolic acids, saponification and alkaline substrates.
• Saponification and alkaline substrates.

Alkali: Unaffected by splashes or spills
Acids: Resists splashes, spills and fumes
Salts: Resists splashes, spills and salt solutions
Oils & Fats: Unaffected by exposure to animal and vegetable oils, fats and grease. Resistant to spills of diesel fuel and lubrication oils
Water: Excellent resistance to both fresh and salt water
Not recommended for immersion conditions in any of the above.

Cross-scribed steel panels coated in the specified system have been protected from rusting after 1,000 hours in a Salt Fog Cabinet (at 35ºC and 100% humidity) according to ASTM B117.

Do not apply Ceramevic-R™ at excessively low (below 4ºC) or high temperatures, or at extremely high humidity (above 85%).

Dry Film Thickness (DFT) is recommended not to exceed 30-40?m per coat.

Estimates The estimated pot life at 20°C is 6 hours.
Higher temperatures will affect pot life. During the pot life the material viscosity will increase. Slight thinning towards the end of pot life may be required to maintain spraying viscosity.

Dust Free: 10 minutes
Touch Dry: 30 minutes
Recoat: 16 hours
Full Cure: 7 days from final coat
*Stated times are based on normal conditions. All dry times are dependent upon working
temperature and solvent selections.

For superior finishing Ceramevic-R™-R can be factory-applied under controlled conditions. If however factory application is not practical, the
complete system can be applied successfully on-site with either brush, roller or spray.

Brush/Roller: using a high quality brush or six to eight millimetre (6-8mm) nap sleeve.

Conventional Spray Gun: Use a premium two-pack gun such as the Anest Iwata W200.15 at 275-310kpa (40-45psi).

Brush/Roller: Apply Ceramevic-R™ as a conventional enamel using a high quality brush or six to eight millimetre (6-8mm) nap sleeve.

Conventional Spray Gun: May be applied by suction, pressure or airless feed. Use a 50% overlap with each pass of the gun. On irregular surfaces, coat the edges first, making an extra pass later. Under certain conditions a mist coat followed by a wet coat may be required. Avoid excessive film build-up.

Ceramevic-R™ is a recoatable system and does not require sanding for intercoat adhesion. Sand out any surface imperfections only, clean off dust and recoat.

Spraying equipment and mixing utensils should be thoroughly flushed clean before the coating cures with 800S or 825S solvent.
