Description

ISOLEP-arctic is a two-component polyamine cured high solids epoxy coating.

It provides high resistance against impacts and abrasion (resistance to friction and sliding in ice).

Compatible with cathodic protection systems.

Recommended use

It can be used as single coat system for anti-corrosion protection of the underwater part of the hulls of ice-class ships, including icebreakers or in a system with VINICOR-marine AF antifouling enamel and other an-tifouling coatings, as well as with epoxy coatings for similar purposes (for example, manufactured by Jotun, International, Hempel, Wilkens) in agreement with VMP (ВМП).

ISOLEP-arctic can be used to protect metal structures operated in atmospheric conditions or when immersed in a liquid, including under operating conditions in highly aggressive environments. Recommended for offshore environments, including variable level areas. It can be used both for new construction and for major repairs.

ISOLEP-arctic complies with the requirements of the "Rules for the classification and construction of sea-going ships, Part XIII", 2020.

Surface preparation

New steel surfaces and coating total overhaul:
  • degrease the metal surface to the first degree in accordance with GOST 9.402;
  • remove salts by fresh water;
  • abrasive blasting from scale and rust to degree 2 according to GOST 9.402 (Sa 2 ½ or Sa 3 ISO 8501-1) with a sharp-edged surface profile with roughness 75-115 μm, segment 2-3 of ISO comparator G (ISO 8503-1);
  • remove dust.
Repair and maintenance of ISOLEP-arctic coating:
Spot repair of the coating is carried out with the following operations:
  • degrease the metal surface to the first degree in accordance with GOST 9.402;
  • remove salts by fresh water;
  • clean damaged areas with power hand tools from rust to P St 2 (ISO 8501-2);
  • remove dust.
When carrying out repair work it is allowed to clean by water jetting to Wa 2 and flash rust grade not lower than M (ISO 8501-4).
The content of chloride on the steel surface immediately before application of ISOLEP-arctic should not exceed 50 mg/m2 (ISO 8502-9)
The time between surface preparation and painting should not exceed 6 hours.
Before applying the second layer of ISOLEP-arctic coating should be cleaned of dirt, degreased and dedusted.

Application

  • before use, mix the base until smooth;
  • add a curing agent to the base with constant stirring, mix thoroughly; if necessary, dilute to working viscosity.
The pot life of ISOLEP-arctic after mixing the components at an ambient temperature of 20-25 °C is at least 1 hour (when organizing painting work, decreasing of pot life should be taken into account when the temperature rises).
The temperature of the base, curing agent and the primer-enamel itself must be at least +15 °C.
It is recommended to apply the material at an ambient temperature of -5 to +40 °C and a relative humidity of up to 80 %.
The temperature of the surface to be painted must be at least 3 °C above the dew point.
ISOLEP-arctic is applied in 1-2 layers with a total coating thickness of 500 μm. One dry-layer thicknessof coating per airless spray is 250-500 μm.

The minimum overlapping interval by the second layer of ISOLEP-arctic at (20±2) °С is 6 hours. Themaximum overcoating interval should be no more than 7 days; if this time is exceeded, it is necessary to
roughen the coating with light blasting or a mechanical tool.
Curing time depends on surface and ambient air temperature, degree of dilution of the material, coating thickness, ventilation efficiency and relative humidity, the actual time should be determined experimentally when painting under specific conditions.
The optimum curing time of the coating before operation is at least 7 days at a (20±2) °С.

Storage and handling

ISOLEP-arctic is supplied as a set: The base and the curing agent packed in metal containers, depending on the set weight.

Storage conditions - in accordance with GOST 9980.5 (at ambient temperatures from minus 40 to plus 40 °С). In storage the package shall be protected from lasting direct sunlight and atmospheric condensation.

It is allowed to store the package with enamel -primer components under direct sunlight, however not more than 3 hours.

The shelf life of the base is 24 months, of the curing agent – 12 months starting with the date of manufacture.

Precautions

When working with the enamel-primer one shall observe the existing sectoral standard norms and requirements and safety measures as specified on the package label.

One shall use personal protective equipment (goggles, face masks and respirators) and avoid inhalation of solvents and contact of the composition substances with skin, eye mucosa, respiratory channels; use inside the premises is allowed only in case sufficient ventilation is provided.

The primer-enamel is classified as fire-hazardous material.

The information is of general character, without consideration to the object specific nature. Use of materials for other purposes not specified here or in case other influencing factors are present shall be approved by the  VMP Holding CJSC  in writing. In case of absence of such approval the manufacturer is not held liable for the improper use of the material and the buyer falls from the right to present claims connected with the coating quality
