Product Description

SikaCor EG1 is a fast curing 2 pack high abrasion and chemical resistant matt epoxy micaecous iron oxide paint that can be applied at temperatures as low as 0°C. directly to new or weathered galvanised steel.

Best Uses

SikaCor® EG-1 is a 2-pack intermediate coat based on epoxy resin containing micaceous iron oxide. SikaCor® EG-1 may only be used by experienced professionals.
Designed as a mechanically resistant intermediate coat on steel surfaces exposed to atmospheric conditions, hot-dip galvanized steel, zinc spraying, stainless steel
and aluminium.

In combination with 2-pack primer and top coats, Sika-Cor® EG-1 is a mechanically water and chemically resistant coating system for durable corrosion protection,
corrosivity category C5-I resp. C5-M, protection duration ‘high’ according to ‘ISO 12944-5’.

Excellent adhesion to hot-dip galvanized steel, zinc
spraying, stainless steel and aluminium

  • High film thickness per coat (up to 120 μm)
  • Very good corrosion protection
  • Tough elastic and hard but not brittle
  • Largely insensitive against shock and impact

Application

Steel: Blast cleaning to Sa 2 ½ according to ISO 12944, part 4. Free from dirt, oil and grease.

Hot-dip galvanized steel, stainless steel and aluminium: Free from dirt, oil, grease and corrosion products. In case of permanent immersion and condensation the
surfaces must be slightly sweep blasted with a ferritefree blasting abrasive. Zinc spraying must be sealed and porefree. For contaminated surfaces e.g. galvanized or primed areas we recommend cleaning with SikaCor® Wash.

Stir component A very thoroughly using an electric mixer (start slowly, then increase up to approx. 300 rpm). Add component B carefully and mix both components
very thoroughly (including sides and bottom of the container). Mix for at least 3 minutes until a homogeneous mixture is achieved. Fill mixed material into clean container and mix again shortly as described above. During mixing and handling of the materials always wear protective goggles, suitable gloves and other
protective clothings.

The method of application has a major effect on achieving uniform thickness and appearance. Spray application will give the best results. The indicated dry film thickness is easily achieved by airless spray. Adding solvents reduces the sag resistance and the dry film thickness. In case of application by roller or brush, additional applications may become necessary to achieve the required coating thickness, depending on type of construction, site conditions, colour shade etc.
Prior to major coating operations a test application on site may be useful to ensure the selected application method will provide the requested results.
