Owatrol PID 60 Marine is a universal anti-rust primer made from alkyd resins and anti-corrosive pigments for the priming and protection of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, gelcoat, galvanised and old painted surfaces and more.
Owatrol PID 60 Marine is a single pack anti-rust primer and bonding coat formulated to keep surfaces rust free before handling and/or shipping. PID 60 Marine is ideal for interior or exterior use on all horizontal and vertical substrates above the waterline.
Suitable for ferrous and non ferrous metals, plastic, gelcoat, galvanized surfaces, previously painted surfaces and metal structures such as pipes, machinery, tanks and superstructure.
- Easy to apply
- Good opacity
- Excellent adhesion
- Good filling properties
- Overcoat with all types of rust protecting finishes – 1 or 2 pack
Surface must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease, salt and other surface contamination including any sanding, blasting or other preparation residue before applying Owatrol PID 60 Marine.
Metal Surfaces exc. Galvanised, Zinc and Aluminium:
Prior to blasting or manually preparing the surface all salt contamination should be removed using fresh water and the surface dried. All oils, grease etc. must be thoroughly removed using a suitable cleaning solvent e.g. Acetone. Deposits firmly adhered to the surface should first be removed by scraping and then cleaned using the solvent. Remove all traces of mill scale, rust, rust scale and other foreign matter by blast cleaning to SIS-Sa2½ or at the least manually to SIS-St3 by grinding (P24-P36) or sanding (40-120 grit). Remove all blast and manual preparation residue by vacuum cleaner, air blower or a stiff clean brush. For difficult areas the removal of rust by chemical means may be possible with undiluted Owatrol Owayell.
Thoroughly clean surface using OWACLEAN* or a suitable solvent e.g. Acetone. Blast surface using a suitable medium or sand with 24-120 grit abrasive compatible with Aluminium. Remove all blast and manual preparation residue by vacuum cleaner, air blower or a stiff clean brush. For difficult areas pickle the surface using diluted Owatrol Owayell.
Clean surface with Owatrol Owaclean or hot soapy water, rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Abrade with 180-220 grit sanding discs. Remove all sanding residue by vacuum cleaner, stiff clean brush, tack cloth or a cloth soaked in a fast flashing solvent e.g. Methylated Spirits (Not White Spirits).
Previously Painted Surfaces:
Checking existing finish for adhesion by using the Cross Hatch test method. If existing finish is weekly adhered it must be completely and thoroughly removed by blast cleaning to SIS-Sa2½ or at the least manually to SIS-St3. If coating is well adhered proceed as follows. Thoroughly clean and sand/blast surface to form a good key, feather in any sharp edges and any bare areas of metal to be manually prepared to at least SIS-St3. Note: It is imperative that prepared bare metal surfaces are coated with Owatrol PID 60 Marine within 8 hours.
Stir well before and during use. Apply an even, single coat at the recommend wet film thickness. Allow to dry. If required a second coat may be applied. Owatrol PID 60 Marine may be diluted up to 30% with White Spirits for spray application (NOT Airless or Airmix). If a perfectly smooth surface is required Owatrol PID 60 Marine may be sand when 100% cured before applying the finish If the overcoating time of Owatrol PID 60 Marine exceeds 5 days, clean surface with a suitable solvent e.g. Acetone. Sand with 220-230 grit abrasive and dust off. Wipe surface with a cloth soaked in Methylated Spirits or a tack cloth to remove any remaining sanding residue.
