Epocoat Aqua Primer is Nor-Maali’s new epoxy primer that combines first-class technical properties and environmental friendliness. With water-borne Epocoat Aqua Primer you can offer a more sustainable, higher-level coating choice for demanding conditions.
Today, water-borne coatings can already outperform solvent-based products, offering better corrosion resistance than traditional solvent-based industrial coatings. “The new Epocoat Aqua Primer does this”, says development chemist Ville Holopainen.
Epocoat Aqua Primer is designed to be used as a primer in corrosion classes C3-C5 (ISO 12944-2). The product can be used with both water-borne and solvent-based topcoats (hybrid systems). Two layer paint system Epocoat Aqua Primer + Norepox Aqua DTM reaches the corrosion class C5M with a total paint film of 180 µm. As one coat system, Epocoat Aqua Primer reaches C3M corrosion class with 80 µm DFT.
In addition to steel surfaces, Epocoat Aqua Primer can also be painted on aluminum and galvanized surfaces.
Epocoat Aqua Primer is a water-borne epoxy primer intended for general steel structures and machinery & equipment. It is easy to spray. The spray fan is even and forming of dry spray is minimal. Epocoat Aqua Primer creates a very smooth surface for the topcoat of the paint system.
Epocoat Aqua Primer is a quick drying coating with excellent overcoating properties. The primer can be overcoated with same type of paint after three hours and with polyurethane coatings after four hours (+23 °C). Thanks to this a paint system with corrosion class C5M can be painted during one work shift. Epocoat Aqua primer is a low odour product, having a positive effect to the working conditions.
Thanks to the low VOC content Epocoat Aqua Primer is a safer option not only for the environment but also for the user. The Water-borne coatings reduce exposure to dangerous substances, and e.g. the risk of explosion in the paint shop is significantly reduced as flammable and explosive raw-materials are barely used.
