TECHNICAL DATA

STORAGE:

Store securely in original labelled containers away from oxidisers, naked flames and sources of ignition.

APPLICATION:

Steel Proof should preferably be stored at room temperature (20 °C) for 24 hours before use.

Steel Proof can be applied by brush or roller. For spray application, thin Steel Proof with white spirit.

Nominal coverage rates of 10 m² per litre are possible on smooth surfaces.

Actual coverage will be determined by the profile of the substrate to be coated and the dry film thickness specified.

Steel Proof will normally be touch dry within 4 hours depending on the temperature and humidity.

Do not apply other coating materials or paints to surfaces which have been protected by Steel Proof without complete removal of the product by solvent degreasing.

DRYING TIME:

4 to 6 hours, very dependent on the drying conditions and wet film thickness.

COVERAGE:

Practical - 5 to 8 m² per litre

.  

PACK SIZE:

5 litre and 20 litre and open top drums

SPECIFICATION:

Complies with MIL-C-83933A(MR) and MIL-C-62218 for rust preventative compounds for steelwork and

MIL-C-16173D-4 for motor vehicle cavity protection.

FIRE RESISTANCE:

Does not support combustion after the flame source is removed.

FLEXIBILITY:

Coating will not crack, peel when bent around a mandrel 3/16 inch in diameter which has been cooled to -20 °C

STABILITY:

Normally stable. Keep away from strong oxidising agents.

Fire of bulk wet product creates Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide vapours.

OPERATING TEMPERATURES:

-50 °C to +150 °C

CORROSION TESTS:

Salt fog resistance ASTM-B 117 1100 hours + at 40µ

Salt water immersion Passes Creep penetration after 7 days Passes

 

PREPARATION:

Steel Proof is supplied ready to use. Stir well before use. Can be thinned using white spirit 

Ensure proper ventilation in confined areas.

Surfaces should be clean and free from surface dirt, dust, grease and any corrosion products.

Weathered steel should be high pressure water or wet abrasive blasted to SSOC-SP6.

Best results are achieved on rusted areas if they are first passivated by treating with Navy Steel

.

AREAS OF USE:

Major applications include: steel structures box sections preservative film during metal seam welding.

Auto under-body coatings.

Heavy duty coatings for steelwork exposed to severe salt weathering preservative.

Mould release wax for light weight concrete formwork.

Transit coating for protection of steel plant and equipment shipped across different climate zones

Steel Proof should preferably be stored at room temperature (20 °C) for 24 hours before use.

Steel Proof can be applied by brush or roller. For spray application, thin Steel Proof with white spirit.

Nominal coverage rates of 10 m² per litre are possible on smooth surfaces.

Actual coverage will be determined by the profile of the substrate to be coated and the dry film thickness specified.

Steel Proof will normally be touch dry within 4 hours depending on the temperature and humidity.

Cooler temperatures delay curing.

Steel-Proof is semi hard wax coating so it never becomes hard or brittle.

Wash brushes and equipment with white spirit immediately after use.
