Safeguard EA

EPOXY-CERAMIC OSMOSIS PREVENTION

COATING FOR GRP CRAFT


SAFEGUARD EA is a two part, low solvent, water resistant epoxy coating that has been developed for use on GRP hulls to provide protection against “osmosis” or to replace polyester gel coat that has been removed due to damage by osmosis.

SAFEGUARD EA  contains carefully selected resins, fillers and additives and which together provide the cured coating with extremely low permeability to oxygen and water vapour.

SAFEGUARD EA also contains a small amount of solvent which together with ‘bloom’ resistant hardeners enables the product to be applied outdoors in winter conditions easily without difficulty or curing problems.

SAFEGUARD EA should be used where an economical but effective osmosis protection coating is needed without the requirement for rapid over-coating.



SURFACE PREPARATION SAFEGUARD EA should only be applied to GRP hulls, which are in good condition with low moisture content  (recommended at below 5%). If the hull has a high moisture content, please refer to our OSMOSIS PREVENTION & REPAIR GUIDE for further details.

New GRP surfaces must be thoroughly degreased with SYNSOL 100 solvent using plenty of clean cloth, and thoroughly sanded to a matt finish with a nippy disc or a dual action sanding machine to provide a mechanical key and improve adhesion. The sanded surface must then be wiped over with a clean cloth soaked in SYNSOL solvent to leave the surface clean, dry and dust free.

On existing boats, all antifouling must be removed by using STRIPPIT antifouling remover, by scraping or by blasting. If the surface is glossy it must be abraded as above.

MIXING Please click here for full mixing instructions.

IRON AND STEEL  SAFEGUARD EA will provide excellent protection to iron and steel that has been primed with ARMOURGUARD ST. Apply three coats for long term protection.

The finished coating should be left to cure before immersion for at least 7 days at a temperature not less than the minimum curing temperature of the hardener.
