Hempel Quattro 17634 is a two-component universal epoxy paint, which cures to a hard and tough coating with good resistance to abrasion, seawater and various oils.
Hempel Quattro 17634 is best used as a universal epoxy and self-primed high performance coating system for atmospheric or in-water service, including water ballast tanks and cargo oil tanks to be coated according to IMO-PSPC requirements (Resolutions MSC.215(82) and MSC.288(87)). Also recommended for long time corrosion protection of structural steel and concrete in severe corrosive and immersed environments.
HEMPADUR QUATTRO 17634 is intended for all year application down to -10°C/15°F and for in-shop applications where fast re-coating and handling is required
New steel: Remove oil and grease etc. thoroughly with suitable detergent. Remove salts and other contaminants by high pressure fresh water cleaning. Abrasive blasting to minimum Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) with a surface profile corresponding to Rugotest No. 3, N9a to N10, preferably BN9a to BN10, Keane-Tator Comparator, 2.0 G/S or ISO Comparator, Medium (G). Apply immediately after cleaning. All damage of shop primer and contamination from storage and fabrication should be thoroughly cleaned prior to overcoating. For repair and touch-up use: HEMPADUR QUATTRO 17634.
Ballast tanks and cargo oil tanks: See separate APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Steel, maintenance: Remove oil and grease, etc. with suitable detergent. Remove salt and other contaminants by (high pressure) fresh water cleaning. Clean damaged areas thoroughly by power tool cleaning to St 3 (minor areas) or by abrasive blasting to min. Sa 2, preferably to Sa 2½. Improved surface preparation will improve the performance of the paint. As an alternative to dry cleaning, water jetting to sound, well adhering coat and/or to steel. Intact coat must appear with roughened surface after the water jetting.
By water jetting to steel, cleanliness shall be Wa 2 - Wa 2½ (atmospheric exposure) / minimum Wa 2½ (immersion) (ISO 8501-4:2006). A flash-rust degree of maximum M (atmospheric exposure), preferably L (immersion) (ISO 8501-4:2006) is acceptable before application. Feather edges to sound and intact paint. Dust off residues. Touch up to full film thickness. On pit corroded surfaces, excessive amounts of salt residues may call for water jetting or wet abrasive blasting, alternatively dry abrasive blasting followed by high pressure fresh water hosing, drying, and finally, dry abrasive blasting again. Other substrates: contact Hempel.
