Product Description

Sherwin Williams Zinc Clad II EU Ethyl Zinc Silicate Primer is a self curing solvent based zinc silicate coating for the protection of blast cleaned steel surfaces up to 400°C.

Best Uses

Sherwin Williams Zinc Clad II is best suited for the protection of blast cleaned steel surfaces. This product is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 400°C. May be used as a holding primer at dry film thickness's down to 20 microns (thinned 15% with Sherwin Williams Thinner C4 after thorough mixing of the two components). Capable of curing at temperatures down to 0°C.

Application

Apply using airless spray or conventional spray. Use a brush for small areas or touch up only. Prior to overcoating, any water soluble salts caused by weathering must be removed by either fresh water washing or flash blasting. The use of a thin sealer coat or tie coat is essential before overcoating the material with a high build system, in order to reduce bubbling / pin holing effects.

The material is overcoatable by a wide range of non-saponifiable systems such as 2-pack epoxy, vinyl, chlorinated rubber, polyurethane etc. Consult our technical team for detailed specifications. The recoating times given above are a guide only, in all cases the Zinc Clad II EU should be fully cured before overcoating.
