Hempel Hempadur Quattro XO 17870 is a two-component, pure epoxy universal primer, which cures to a hard and tough coating with good resistance to abrasion and seawater. The product is available with different levels of Aluminium and Fibre pigmentation to deliver tailor made optimized performance properties for different harsh service conditions.
Hempel Hempadur Quattro XO 17870 is best used as a universal pure epoxy and self-primed high performance coating system for atmospheric or in water service, including water ballast tanks to be coated according to IMO-PSPC requirements defined in the IMO Resolution MSC.215(82)). HEMPADUR QUATTRO XO 17870 is intended for all year application down to -10°C/14°F and for applications where fast recoating 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 XO 17870.
Ballast tanks: For PSPC type approved coating, consult separate application instructions on the product data sheet.
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.
