Technical Information & Specifications

Type of coating: Single Component Moisture Curing Polymeric Isocyanate.

Colors: Silver

Gloss: 80%.

Solids: 76%.

Flash Point: 103°F (40°C)

Viscosity: at 77°F (25°C)   320cps

VOC: Not more than 250g/l

Minimum Recommended Dry film thickness: 3 mils (75um).

Coverage: On porous surfaces like rust and corrosion approximately 100 sq. ft. per quart or 400 sq. ft. per gallon (9.5m 2 per liter) at 2 mils (50um) thickness. Coverage will vary depending on surface profile, application method and film thickness.

Average Dry Times at 77°F (25°C) at 50% humidity (inside enclosed tank with minimal air flow): Touch dry 4-6 hours. Full cure after 96 hrs.

Pot life: Pot life will depend on local humidity conditions and the length of time the coating is exposed to moisture. Though providing the can is resealed well and only opened for limited periods at a time the average life is approximately 1-2 months.

Solvent: Use only KBS #1 Thinner. The use of other solvents can cause premature coating failure and or lost of adhesion.

General appearance and Characteristics: Smooth ceramic like finish with very high levels of flexibility and toughness. Strong resistance to impact, high temperature, abrasion and common aggressive chemicals including; Acids, Alkalis, Salts, Minerals, Solvents, Fuels and Hydraulic fluids.

Storage Requirements: Store in cool dry conditions away from direct sun light 41-95°F (5-35°C)

Container Availability: 8oz (236mls) Pint (475mls) Quart (946mls) Gallon (3.78L) 5 Gallon (18.9L) Drum 55 Gallon (208L)

Performance Characteristics: Salt water resistance ASTM B-117 at 95°F (35°C) at 5% salt water for 2000 hrs: No noticeable change.
