SURFACE TOLERANT EPOXY-CERAMIC METAL PRIMER
& COATING WITH CUTTING EDGE POLYMER TECHNOLOGY
ARMOURGUARD ST is a recently developed two part epoxy-ceramic metal primer and coating that contains a functional liquid rubber that forms minute spherical droplets within the epoxy binder. After application the rubber reacts with the epoxy hardener rendering the coating flexible and impact resistant. The rubber increases adhesion of the coating to the substrate, decreases permeability but surprisingly, does not decrease hardness or abrasion resistance. ARMOURGUARD ST also contains a carefully selected package of corrosion inhibitors that inhibit the formation of rust beneath the coating.
ARMOURGUARD ST is a two part, low solvent epoxy-ceramic coating that contains 70% of solid ceramic micro-spheres and anti-corrosion additives that passivate the metal surface thus preventing corrosion.
ARMOURGUARD ST is virtually impervious to water, water vapour and oxygen. Its unique formulation eliminates the requirement for separate primers and undercoats because ARMOURGUARD ST’s superb barrier properties prevent oxygen and moisture reaching the substrate
ARMOURGUARD ST is intended for use on marine and industrial steelwork above and below the waterline where the best possible protection from abrasion and mechanical damage is required combined with maximum corrosion protection. The cured coating contains the maximum possible amount of ceramic micro-spheres which form a composite with far superior adhesion, abrasion and corrosion resistance than normal epoxy coatings. Several coats can be applied to provide full protection against corrosion and abrasion. Alternatively one coat can be applied to the prepared surface followed by other coatings such as ARMOURGUARD PW or SAFEGUARD TSF or EA.
HARDENERS A choice of three hardeners are available which enable ARMOURGUARD ST to be used for diverse applications in most climatic conditions.
