SIGMACOVER 480

Two component polyamide cured corrosion inhibiting epoxy primer
PRINCIPAL CHARACTERISTICS
– general purpose primer used in protective coating systems for
immersion and atmospheric exposure conditions
– good adhesion to steel and galvanized steel
– good adhesion to non ferrous metals
– good flow and wetting properties
– good water and corrosion resistance
– cures at temperatures as low as 5 °C
– suitable for touching up of weld seams and damaged epoxy
primers during construction
– long recoating intervals are possible when overcoating with
epoxy and polyurethane coatings
– can be overcoated with alkyd, chlorinated rubber, vinyl, epoxy and polyurethane coatings
– suitable for application to wet or dry abrasive cleaned substrates
– tolerant to a damp steel surface
– compatible with cathodic protection systems
– can be used in conjunction with Sigma Wet Blast Inhibitor

Basic Data At 20 °c

( For mixed product )
Mass density
approx. 1.4g/cm3
Solids content
approx. 53% by volume
Recommended
dry film thickness
50 – 100 μm
Theoretical
6.6 m2/ltr for a dft of 80 μm*
spreading rate
depending on the nature and condition of the substrate and the
application method employed
Touch dry after
approx. 3 hours
Overcoating interval
min. 10 hours*
max. 3 months*
Full cure after
7 days
Shelf life (cool,dry place)
12 months
Flashpoint
base 27 °C – hardener 28 °C

– previous coat of epoxy primer or buildcoat within overcoating interval and free from any contamination
– if previous coat is exposed longer it should be roughened prior to application of next coat
– substrate temperature should be above 5 °C and at least 3 °c above the dew point

– mixing ratio: by volume; base to hardener 76 : 24
– the temperature of the mixed base and hardener should be above
15 °C, otherwise extra solvent may be required to obtain the
correct application viscosity
– too much solvent will result in lower sag resistance and
slower cure
– thinner should only be added after proper mixing
of the base and hardener
Induction time at 20 °C
10 minutes
Potlife at 20 °C
8 hours
