Nullifire PM018 is an Heavy duty, Anti Corrosion, High Build Two Pack Epoxy Primer for application under Nullifire Intumescent Basecoats.
It is ideal for black steel.
Nullifire PM018 provides a Semi-Gloss Grey/White finish.
Ensure the surface is clean, undamaged, dry, and free from grease or other materials that may affect adhesion.
Ensure air and steel temperatures are above 5°C and below 30°C.
Relative humidity should be below 80% and the steel surface temperature should be a minimum of 3°C above the dew point.
Ensure the surface is dry and free from contact with rain or condensation during application.
Nullifire PM018 can be thinned to ease application with Nullifire FC002 (up to 15% by volume if spraying).
Brush / roller application id recommended for small areas only.
Airless spray equipment is recommended. Typical equipment settings would be:
Operating Pressure: 2400 psi
Tip Size: 19 – 25 thou
Nullifire PM018 can be applied up to a maximum wet film thickness (WFT) of 205µm in a single spray coat.
Theoretical coverage Rate 5m2 / litre
Drying time will be dependent upon temperature, air movement, humidity, method of application and the thickness of the coating.
Touch Dry - 4 hours at 20° C
Hard Dry - 7 days at 20° C
Recoat - 4 hours at 20° C
High humidity and low air movement or low surface temperatures can result in condensation, prolonging drying times and possibly poor basecoat adhesion.
Cleaning of Equipment.
Pump, mixer and hose should be cleaned with FC002 Solvent.
