SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Steel Abrasive blast to SSPC SP-6 or higher with an angular 1.0-3.0 mil surface profile.
Or see instructions for specific primer
Apply PSX 700 as soon as possible to prevent the blasted surface from rusting.
Keep moisture, oil, grease, or other organic matter off surface before coating.
For touch up and repair, power tool cleaning in accordance with SSPC SP-11 is
acceptable.
Concrete See specific primer
Non-Ferrous Metals and Abrasive blast in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a uniform and
Stainless Steel dense 1.5-4.0 mil anchor profile. Size and hardness of abrasive should be adjusted
as necessary based on the hardness of the substrate. Aluminum may be treated
with a surface treatment compliant with Mil-DTL-5541 or equivalent (non-immersion
applications only).
Galvanized Steel Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner. Lightly abrasive blast
with a fine abrasive in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a profile of
1.5-3.0 mils. When light abrasive blasting is not possible, galvanizing can be treated
with a suitable zinc phosphate conversion coating. Galvanizing that has at least 12
months of exterior weathering and has a rough surface with white rust present may
be over-coated after power washing and cleaning to remove white rust and other
contaminants. The surface must have a measurable profile.

Dry Temperature Resistance* Continuous 200F Intermittent 350F (<5% of the time, max 24 hours)
* Color will drift at elevated temperatures.
Shelf Life 3 years from date of manufacture
* when stored in original sealed containers in dry conditions between 40-100F
SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is, in general, proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Abrasive blasting is usually the most effective and economical method.When this is
impossible or impractical, Amerlock 2 can be applied over mechanically cleaned
surfaces. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants, including salt
deposits. Contact PPG for maximum allowable salt containment levels.
Mild Steel Remove all loose rust, dirt, grease or other contaminants by one of the following
depending on the degree of cleanliness required: SSPC-SP2, 3, 6, 7 or 10 (ISO
8501-1 St-2, St-3, Sa 1, Sa 2.5). These minimum surface preparation standards
apply to steel that has been previously abrasive blasted. The choice of surface
preparation will depend on the system selected and end-use service conditions.
For more severe service and immersion, clean to SSPC-SP10 (ISO8501-1 Sa 2.5).
Blast to achieve an anchor profile of 1.0-5.0 mils (25-125 microns) as indicted by a
Keane-Tator Surface profile Comparator or Testex Tape. Previously blasted steel
may be ultra-high pressure water jetted to SSPC SP WJ-2(L) / NACE WJ-2(L).
The wet surface can be dried by blowing with dry compressed air giving special at-
tention to horizontal surfaces and recesses.
Concrete Prepare / clean surface in accordance with SSPC SP-13 guidelines. Abrade surface
per ASTM D-4259 to remove all efflorescence and laitance, to expose sub-surface
voids, and to provide a surface roughness equivalent of 60 grit sandpaper or
coarser. Test for moisture by conducting a plastic sheet test in accordance with
ASTM D4263. Fill voids as necessary with Amercoat 114A epoxy filler. For slabs on
grade, test for moisture in accordance with ASTM F1869 (calcium chloride test).
The maximum allowable moisture transmission is 3 lbs / 1,000 ft
2
/24 hours. Refer to
Information Sheet 1496ACUS for further details regarding moisture measurements.

Galvanized Steel Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner. Lightly abrasive blast
with a fine abrasive in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a profile of
1.5-3.0 mils. When light abrasive blasting is not possible, galvanizing can be treated
with a suitable zinc phosphate conversion coating. Galvanizing that has at least 12
months of exterior weathering and has a rough surface with white rust present may
be over-coated after power washing and cleaning to remove white rust and other
contaminants. The surface must have a measurable profile. A test patch is recom-
mended to confirm adhesion. Not recommended over chromate sealed galvanizing
without blasting to thoroughly remove chromates. Adhesion problems may occur.
Non-Ferrous Metals and Abrasive blast in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a uniform and
Stainless Steel dense 1.5-4.0 mil anchor profile. Size and hardness of abrasive should be adjusted
as necessary based on the hardness of the substrate. Aluminum may be treated
with a surface treatment compliant with Mil-DTL-5541 or equivalent (non-immersion
applications only).
Aged coatings All surfaces must be clean, dry, tightly bonded and free of all loose paint, corrosion
products or chalky residue. Abrade surface, or clean with Prep 88. Amerlock 2 is
compatible over most types of properly applied and tightly adhering coatings, however,
a test patch is recommended to confirm compatibility.
Repair Prepare damaged areas to original surface preparation specifications, feathering
edges of intact coating. Thoroughly remove dust or abrasive residue before touch-up.
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
Ambient temperatures* 20F to 122F (-6C to 50C)
* Amerlock 400 hardener can be used with the Amerlock 2/400 base component for applications that require a
long pot life. The A component is the same for Amerlock 400 and Amerlock 2. The B components are inter-
changeable.
Material temperatures 40F to 90F (5C to 32C)
Relative humidity 0 to 100%, surface must be free of visible moisture. For immersion service and for
optimum performance, surface temperature must be at least 5F above the dew point
temperature.
Surface temperature 20F to 122 F (-6C to 50C)
* Amerlock 2 may be applied to surfaces as hot as 250F (121C) for non-immersion service. When applying
Amerlock 2 to surfaces between 122F and 250F, Amerlock 2 must be thinned at 1/2 pint per gallon with only
Amercoat 101 thinner. Multiple thin passes may be required to achieve film build and to avoid solvent blistering.
General air quality Area should be sheltered from airborne particulates and pollutants. Avoid combustion
gases or other sources of carbon dioxide that may promote amine blush. Ensure good
ventilation during application and curing. Provide shelter to prevent wind from affecting
spray patterns. Refer to Information Bulletin #1489 for further information on prevention,
detection, and mitigation of amine blush.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Mixing ratio by volume 1 part base to 1 part hardener

DRY/CURE TIMES Amerlock 2 @ 5 mils dft
Amerlock 2 Aluminum @ 5 mils dft
* Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window. An extended recoatable window
may be allowable in some circumstances. Please contact your PPG PMC representative for more details.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. A detergent wash with
Prep 88 or equivalent is required prior to application of topcoats after 30 days of exposure. However, particular
attention must be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a
further degree of cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods.
If maximum recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

* Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.surfaces. Higher surface tem-
peratures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. A detergent wash with
Prep 88 or equivalent is required prior to application of topcoats after 30 days of exposure. However, particular
attention must be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a
further degree of cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods.
If maximum recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is, in general, proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Abrasive blasting is usually the most effective and economical method. When this is
impossible or impractical, Amerlock 400 can be applied over mechanically cleaned
surfaces. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants, including salt
deposits. Contact PPG for maximum allowable salt containment levels.
Mild Steel Remove all loose rust, dirt, grease or other contaminants by one of the following
depending on the degree of cleanliness required: SSPC-SP2, 3, 6, 7 or 10 (ISO
8501-1 St-2, St-3, Sa 1, Sa 2.5). These minimum surface preparation standards
apply to steel that has been previously abrasive blasted. The choice of surface
preparation will depend on the system selected and end-use service conditions.
For more severe service and immersion, clean to SSPC-SP10 (ISO8501-1 Sa 2.5).
Blast to achieve an anchor profile of 1.0-5.0 mils (50-75microns) as indicted by a
Keane-Tator Surface profile Comparator or Testex Tape. Previously blasted steel
may be ultra-high pressure water jetted to SSPC -SP WJ-2(L) / NACE WJ-2(L).
The wet surface can be dried by blowing with dry compressed air giving special at-
tention to horizontal surfaces and recesses.
Concrete Prepare / clean surface in accordance with SSPC SP-13 guidelines. Abrade surface
per ASTM D-4259 to remove all efflorescence and laitance, to expose sub-surface
voids, and to provide a surface roughness equivalent of 60 grit sandpaper or
coarser. Test for moisture by conducting a plastic sheet test in accordance with
ASTM D4263. Fill voids as necessary with Amercoat 114A epoxy filler. For slabs on
grade, test for moisture in accordance with ASTM F1869 (calcium chloride test).
The maximum allowable moisture transmission is 3 lbs / 1,000 ft
2
/24 hours. Refer to
Information Sheet 1496ACUS for further details regarding moisture measurements.

page 1/4
Galvanized Steel Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner. Lightly abrasive blast
with a fine abrasive in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a profile
of 1.5-3.0 mils. When light abrasive blasting is not possible, galvanizing can be
treated with a suitable zinc phosphate conversion coating. Galvanizing that has at
least 12 months of exterior weathering and has a rough surface with white rust
present may be over-coated after power washing and cleaning to remove white rust
and other contaminants. The surface must have a measurable profile. A test patch
is recommended to confirm adhesion. Not recommended over chromate sealed
galvanizing without blasting to thoroughly remove chromates. Adhesion problems
may occur.
Non-Ferrous Metals and Abrasive blast in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a uniform and
Stainless Steel dense 1.5-4.0 mil anchor profile. Size and hardness of abrasive should be adjusted
as necessary based on the hardness of the substrate. Aluminum may be treated
with a surface treatment compliant with Mil-DTL-5541 or equivalent (non-immersion
applications only).
Aged coatings All surfaces must be clean, dry, tightly bonded and free of all loose paint, corrosion
products or chalky residue. Abrade surface, or clean with Prep 88. Amerlock 400 is
compatible over most types of properly applied and tightly adhering coatings, however,
a test patch is recommended to confirm compatibility.
Repair Prepare damaged areas to original surface preparation specifications, feathering
edges of intact coating. Thoroughly remove dust or abrasive residue before touch-up.

This is a solvent borne paint and care should be taken to avoid inhalation of spray mist
or vapor as well as contact between the wet paint and exposed skin or eyes.
DRY/CURE TIMES* Amerlock 400AL @ 5 mils dft
* Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. A detergent wash with
Prep 88 or equivalent is required prior to application of topcoats after 30 days of exposure. However, particular
attention must be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a
further degree of cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods.
If maximum recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

DRY/CURE TIMES* Amerlock 400BF @ 10 mils dft
* Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. A detergent wash with
Prep 88 or equivalent is required prior to application of topcoats after 30 days of exposure. However, particular
attention must be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a
further degree of cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods.
If maximum recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is, in general, proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Use of Amerlock Sealer provides a viable options for coating projects where abrasive
blasting is not possible, but it is not a performance substitute for abrasive blasting in
many circumstances.
Steel Remove all rust, dirt, moisture, grease or other contaminants from the surface.
Power tool clean in accordance with SSPC SP-3 or hand tool clean to SSPC SP-2
requirements. Alternately, abrasive blast to SSPC SP-7 requirements. Abrasive
blasting to SSPC SP-6 or better is also allowable. Amerlock Sealer may be applied
over waterjetted surfaces as well.
Aluminum Remove all rust, dirt, moisture, grease or other contaminants from the surface.
Treat with chromating conversion coatings or phosphatizing agents. Applicable over
surface treatments such as MIL-C-5541. Alternately, lightly abrasive blast with fine
abrasive to produce a uniform and dense anchor profile of 1-3 mils.
Galvanizing or Galvalume

Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner, then use a phosphatizing
conversion coating. Alternately, power tool clean to uniformly abrade the surface or
lightly abrasive blast with a fine abrasive to produce a uniform and dense anchor
profile of 1-3 mils.
Galvanizing that has had at least 12 months of exterior weathering may be coated
after power washing to remove all contaminants and white rust. Galvanized surfaces
that have been passivated with a chromate treatment must be lightly abrasive
blasted. Coatings may not adhere to chromate sealed galvanizing if the chromates
are not completely removed.
Concrete New Slabs All surfaces to be coated must be strong and sound, contain no
additives or hardeners, and should not be treated with other sealers or conventional
curing compounds containing waxes, silicones, or silicates. New slabs (horizontal
surfaces), should have a float or broom finish as described in ACI Specification
301. Finishing shall be within Class A tolerance when using Amerlock Sealer as a
concrete curing compound and applying an epoxy surfacing.
AMERLOCK

Sealer
page 1/3
When using Amerlock Sealer as a curing compound, product should be applied to
the concrete within 72 hours after placement of concrete and as soon as forms can
be removed. Please refer to System Guide #1441 for further information.
Existing Concrete Water cured concrete or existing structures must be cured for a
minimum of 14 days and have attained 80 percent of its final strength. When cured,
the surface must be either prepared per ASTM D 4259 or ASTM D 4260 with
muriatic acid using equal parts of acid to water by volume. Surface should be free
of any oil, grease, embedded chemicals, laitance, water repellants, previous
sealants, form release compounds, and effluoresence. The surface should be
checked for moisture transmission in accordance with ASTM F1869 (calcium
chloride test) or by ASTM D4253 (plastic sheet test). The maximum recommended
moisture transmission rate is 3 lbs / 1,000 ft
2
/ 24 hours.
A suitably finished surface must have a uniform surface texture exposing fine
aggregate resembling coarse sandpaper. If required, repeat acid etching or
abrasive blasting until the surface texture is uniform.
Concrete surfaces cured with conventional curing compounds or contaminated with
form oils must be completely cleaned by ASTM D4259. Acid etching is not
acceptable as it will not normally remove these compounds.
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
Ambient temperatures 40F to 120F (0C to 49C)
Surface temperature must be at least 5F above the dew point temperature.
Material temperatures 40F to 90F (5C to 32C)

in accordance with SSPC SP-1.
Abrasive blast with an angular abrasive to an SSPC SP-10 cleanliness or higher.
Achieve a surface profile of 2.0-4.0 mils.
Amercoat 114A may be used as a pit filler for certain applications. Check with PPG
Technical Service for guidance on chemical resistance.
Check with PPG technical service for the maximum allowable soluble salt level for
water immersion service. This will vary based on the water chemistry and service
temperatures.
Concrete Prepare / clean surface in accordance with SSPC SP-13 guidelines. Abrade surface
per ASTM D-4259 to remove all efflorescence and laitance, to expose sub-surface
voids, and to provide a surface roughness equivalent of 60 grit sandpaper or
coarser. Test for moisture by conducting a plastic sheet test in accordance with
ASTM D4263. Fill voids as necessary with Amercoat 114A epoxy filler.
Galvanized Steel Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner. Lightly abrasive blast
with a fine abrasive in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a profile
of 1.5-3.0 mils. When light abrasive blasting is not possible, galvanizing can be
treated with a suitable zinc phosphate conversion coating. Galvanizing that has at
least 12 months of exterior weathering and has a rough surface with white rust
present may be over-coated after power washing and cleaning to remove white rust
and other contaminants. The surface must have a measurable profile. A test patch
is recommended to confirm adhesion. Not recommended over chromate sealed
galvanizing without blasting to thoroughly remove chromates. Adhesion problems
may occur.

humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air t
emperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window. Expose to a maximum of 6 hours
of direct sunlight prior to recoating. Ensure surface remains dry between coats.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. If maximum recoat/topcoat
time is exceeded, then roughen surface by brush blasting when coating has cured to sufficiently for blasting
(typically 5-14 days).

Heat Cure Procedures
1. Allow the final coat of the lining to achieve a dry hard condition prior to heating above
120F .
2. Do not heat cure until after holiday detection has been accomplished (when specified).
3. Ramp heat at a rate of no greater than 2F / minute to the target temperature.
4. Surface temperatures must be measured at various elevations from top to bottom and
in each cardinal direction. The lowest surface temperature must meet the minimum
time/temperature requirements of the heat cure schedule. Record all temperatures.
5. All adjacent tanks must be empty.
* Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. Particular attention must
be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a further degree of
cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods. If maximum
recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is, in general, proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Abrasive blasting is usually the most effective and economical method.When this is
impossible or impractical, Amercoat 240 can be applied over mechanically cleaned
surfaces. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants, including salt
deposits. Contact PPG for maximum allowable salt containment levels.
Mild Steel Remove all loose rust, dirt, grease or other contaminants by one of the following
depending on the degree of cleanliness required: SSPC SP-2, 3, 6, 7 or 10 (ISO
8501-1 St-2, St-3, Sa 1, Sa 2.5). These minimum surface preparation standards
apply to steel that has been previously abrasive blasted. The choice of surface
preparation will depend on the system selected and end-use service conditions.
For more severe service and immersion, clean to SSPC SP-10 (ISO8501-1 Sa 2.5).
Blast to achieve an anchor profile of 2-4 mils (50-100microns) as indicted by a
Keane-Tator Surface profile Comparator or Testex Tape. Previously blasted steel
may be ultra-high pressure water jetted to SSPC SP WJ-2(L) / NACE WJ-2(L).
The wet surface can be dried by blowing with dry compressed air giving special at-
tention to horizontal surfaces and recesses.
Concrete Prepare / clean surface in accordance with SSPC SP-13 guidelines. Abrade surface
per ASTM D-4259 to remove all efflorescence and laitance, to expose sub-surface
voids, and to provide a surface roughness equivalent of 60 grit sandpaper or
coarser. Test for moisture by conducting a plastic sheet test in accordance with
ASTM D4263. Fill voids as necessary with Amercoat 114A epoxy filler.

Galvanized Steel Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner. Lightly abrasive blast
with a fine abrasive in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a profile
of 1.5-3.0 mils. When light abrasive blasting is not possible, galvanizing can be
treated with a suitable zinc phosphate conversion coating. Galvanizing that has at
least 12 months of exterior weathering and has a rough surface with white rust
present may be over-coated after power washing and cleaning to remove white rust
and other contaminants. The surface must have a measurable profile. A test patch
is recommended to confirm adhesion. Not recommended over chromate sealed
galvanizing without blasting to thoroughly remove chromates. Adhesion problems
may occur.
Non-Ferrous Metals and Abrasive blast in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a uniform and
Stainless Steel dense 1.5-4.0 mil anchor profile. Size and hardness of abrasive should be adjusted
as necessary based on the hardness of the substrate. Aluminum may be treated
with a surface treatment compliant with Mil-DTL-5541 or equivalent (non-immersion
applications only).
Aged coatings All surfaces must be clean, dry, tightly bonded and free of all loose paint, corrosion
products or chalky residue. Abrade surface, or clean with Prep 88. Amercoat 240 is
compatible over most types of properly applied and tightly adhering coatings, however,
a test patch is recommended to confirm compatibility.

DRY/CURE TIMES Amercoat 240 @ 6 mils dft
* Antifouling coatings should be applied when the previous coat is tack free, but impressionable with moderate
finger tip pressure.
Alkyd coatings and waterborne arcylic coatings should be applied after the film is dry through and no greater
than three times the dry through time.
** Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. A detergent wash with
Prep 88 or equivalent is required prior to application of topcoats after 30 days of exposure. However, particular
attention must be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a
further degree of cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods.
If maximum recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.
*** On underwater hull systems, the vessel can be launched after the specified dry-to-launch period indicated in
the application instructions for the antifouling.

* Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air tem-
peratures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated sur-
faces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. Particular attention must
be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a further degree of
cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods. If maximum
recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is, in general, proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Abrasive blasting is usually the most effective and economical method.When this is
impossible or impractical, Amercoat 370 can be applied over mechanically cleaned
surfaces. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants, including salt
deposits. Contact PPG for maximum allowable salt containment levels.
Mild Steel Remove all loose rust, dirt, grease or other contaminants by one of the following
depending on the degree of cleanliness required: SSPC SP-2, 3, 6, 7 or 10 (ISO
8501-1 St-2, St-3, Sa 1, Sa 2.5). These minimum surface preparation standards
apply to steel that has been previously abrasive blasted. The choice of surface
preparation will depend on the system selected and end-use service conditions.
For more severe service and immersion, clean to SSPC SP-10 (ISO8501-1 Sa 2.5).
Blast to achieve an anchor profile of 2.0-4.0 mils (50-100 microns) as indicted by a
Keane-Tator Surface profile Comparator or Testex Tape. Previously blasted steel
may be ultra-high pressure water jetted to SSPC SP WJ-2(L) / NACE WJ-2(L).
The wet surface can be dried by blowing with dry compressed air giving special
attention to horizontal surfaces and recesses.
Concrete Prepare / clean surface in accordance with SSPC SP-13 guidelines. Abrade surface
per ASTM D-4259 to remove all efflorescence and laitance, to expose sub-surface
voids, and to provide a surface roughness equivalent of 60 grit sandpaper or
coarser. Test for moisture by conducting a plastic sheet test in accordance with
ASTM D4263. Fill voids as necessary with Amercoat 114A epoxy filler.
Galvanized Steel Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner. Lightly abrasive blast
with a fine abrasive in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a profile
of 1.5-3.0 mils. When light abrasive blasting is not possible, galvanizing can be
treated with a suitable zinc phosphate conversion coating. Galvanizing that has at
least 12 months of exterior weathering and has a rough surface with white rust
present may be over-coated after power washing and cleaning to remove white rust
and other contaminants. The surface must have a measurable profile. A test patch is
recommended to confirm adhesion. Not recommended over chromate sealed galva-
nizing without blasting to thoroughly remove chromates. Adhesion problems may occur.

DRY/CURE TIMES Amercoat 370 @ 4 mils dft
Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. A detergent wash with
Prep 88 or equivalent is required prior to application of topcoats after 30 days of exposure. However, particular
attention must be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a
further degree of cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods.
If maximum recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is, in general, proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Abrasive blasting is usually the most effective and economical method.When this is
impossible or impractical, Amercoat 385 can be applied over mechanically cleaned
surfaces. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants, including salt
deposits. Contact PPG for maximum allowable salt containment levels.
Mild Steel Remove all loose rust, dirt, grease or other contaminants by one of the following
depending on the degree of cleanliness required: SSPC SP-2, 3, 6, 7 or 10 (ISO
8501-1 St-2, St-3, Sa 1, Sa 2.5). These minimum surface preparation standards
apply to steel that has been previously abrasive blasted. The choice of surface
preparation will depend on the system selected and end-use service conditions.
For more severe service and immersion, clean to SSPC SP-10 (ISO8501-1 Sa 2.5).
Blast to achieve an anchor profile of 1.0-5.0 mils (50-75microns) as indicted by a
Keane-Tator Surface profile Comparator or Testex Tape. For immersion and severe
duty applications, the recommended blast profile is 2.0-4.0 mils (50-100 microns).
Previously blasted steel may be ultra-high pressure water jetted to SSPC -SP WJ-2(L) /
NACE WJ-2(L). The wet surface can be dried by blowing with dry compressed air
giving special attention to horizontal surfaces and recesses.
Concrete Prepare / clean surface in accordance with SSPC SP-13 guidelines. Abrade surface
per ASTM D-4259 to remove all efflorescence and laitance, to expose sub-surface
voids, and to provide a surface roughness equivalent of 60 grit sandpaper or coarser.
Test for moisture by conducting a plastic sheet test in accordance with ASTM D4263.
Fill voids as necessary with Amercoat 114A epoxy filler.
Galvanized Steel Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner. Lightly abrasive blast
with a fine abrasive in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a profile of
1.5 - 3.0 mils. When light abrasive blasting is not possible, galvanizing can be treated
with a suitable zinc phosphate conversion coating. Galvanizing that has at least 12
months of exterior weathering and has a rough surface with white rust present may
be over-coated after power washing and cleaning to remove white rust and other

contaminants. The surface must have a measurable profile. A test patch is recom-
mended to confirm adhesion. Not recommended over chromate sealed galvanizing
without blasting to thoroughly remove chromates. Adhesion problems may occur.
Non-Ferrous Metals and Abrasive blast in accordance with SSPC SP-16 guidelines to achieve a uniform and
Stainless Steel dense 1.5-4.0 mil anchor profile. Size and hardness of abrasive should be adjusted
as necessary based on the hardness of the substrate. Aluminum may be treated
with a surface treatment compliant with Mil-DTL-5541 or equivalent (non-immersion
applications only).
Aged coatings All surfaces must be clean, dry, tightly bonded and free of all loose paint, corrosion
products or chalky residue. Abrade surface, or clean with Prep 88. Amercoat 385 is
compatible over most types of properly applied and tightly adhering coatings, however,
a test patch is recommended to confirm compatibility.
Repair Prepare damaged areas to original surface preparation specifications, feathering
edges of intact coating. Thoroughly remove dust or abrasive residue before touch-up.

SURFACE PREPARATION
Steel Remove weld spatter, protrusions, and laminations in steel. Grind welds smooth in
accordance with NACE RP-0178. Remove all surface contaminants, oil and grease
in accordance with SSPC SP-1.
Abrasive blast with an angular abrasive to an SSPC SP-10 cleanliness or higher.
Achieve a surface profile of 3.0-4.5 mils.
Concrete Remove all surface contaminants such as oil, grease, and embedded chemicals.
Light abrasive blast per ASTM D 4259 to remove all chalk and surface glaze or
laitance. Mechanical surface preparation should expose sub-surface voids and
provide a surface profile equivalent to 80 grit sandpaper or coarser. Ensure surface
is dry with a plastic sheet test in accordance with ASTM D4263. Slabs on grade
must have a maximum moisture transmission rate of 3 lbs/1,000 ft
2
/ 24 hours.
Please refer to information bulletin #1496ACUS for further information on moisture
measurements. Prime concrete with Amerlock Sealer or Amerlock 400.
Repair 1. Remove all rust, loose paint, grease, or other contaminants. Spot abrasive blast
damaged areas to remove old coatings and prepare the steel to an SSPC SP10
condition with a 2.0-5.0 mil anchor profile. Alternately power too clean to bare metal
as per SSPC SP-11 to obtain a uniform and dense, minimum 2.0 mil anchor profile.
2. Taper abrade in-tact and adhered coating surrounding the repair area terminating at
a feathered edge at the substrate.
3. Apply Amerthane 490 to the specified thickness as soon as possible after the sur-
face is prepared.

a deviation is often obtained between the measured apparent wft and the
real applied wft

this is due to the thixotropy and the surface tension of the paint which
retards the release of air trapped in the paint film for some time

recommendation is to apply a wft which is equal to the specified dft
plus 2.5 mils (60 m)
measuring dry lm thickness
because of low initial hardness the dft cannot be measured within some
days due to the penetration of the measuring device into the soft paint film

the dft should be measured using a calibration foil of known thickness placed
in between the coating and the measuring device

for transport of methanol and vinyl acetate monomer, a hot cure is required
which cannot be substituted by a service period of 3 months with non-
aggressive cargoes
adequate ventilation must be maintained during application and curing
(please refer to sheets 1433 and 1434)
the performance of the applied system strongly depends on the curing
degree of the first coat at time of recoating. Therefore overcoating time

in-line heating or insulated hoses may be necessary to avoid cooling down
of paint in hoses at low air temperature
application with 45:1 airless spray equipment is possible provided in-line
heated high pressure hoses are used
in case of using 45:1 airless spray equipment the paint must be heated to
approx. 85F (29C) in order to obtain the right application viscosity

measuring wet lm thickness
a deviation is often obtained between the measured apparent wft and the
real applied wft
this is due to the thixotropy and the surface tension of the paint which
retards the release of air trapped in the paint lm for some time
recommendation is to apply a WFT which is equal to the specified dft plus
2.4 mils (60 m)
measuring dry lm thickness
because of low initial hardness the dft cannot be measured within some
days due to the penetration of the measuring device into the soft paint film
the dft should be measured using a calibration foil of known thickness placed
in between the coating and the measuring device

Power tool clean in accordance with SSPC SP-3 or hand tool clean to SSPC SP-2
requirements. Alternately, abrasive blast to SSPC SP-7 requirements. Abrasive
blasting to SSPC SP-6 or better is also allowable and will give the best possible
system performance.
Non-ferrous metals Remove all rust, dirt, moisture, grease or other contaminants from the surface.
Treat with conversion coatings or phosphatizing agents. Applicable over surface
treatments such as MIL-C-5541. Alternately, lightly abrasive blast with fine abrasive
to produce a uniform and dense anchor profile of 1-3 mils in accordance with SSPC
SP-16.
Galvanizing or Galvalume

Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner, then use a phosphatizing
conversion coating.

DESCRIPTION Water Based Inorganic Zinc Silicate Pre-Construction Primer
PRINCIPAL CHARACTERISTICS Zero VOC formulation
>65% zinc in dry film
Provides outstanding corrosion resistance
Early water resistance
Suitable for high speed welding
Provides protection for extended periods
COLOR* AND GLOSS Grey
Flat
BASIC DATA
Volume solids 62% 4% (based on applied film, including porosity)
VOC 0 lbs/gal (0 g/L)
Recommended
Dry film thickness (per coat) 0.5 0.7 mils (12.5 17.5 microns)
Higher film thickness is possible, however high speed welding performance is adversely
affected by higher film thicknesses.
Theoretical Spread Rate @ 0.7 mils 1,420 ft
2
/gal
Components 2 (liquid, zinc powder)
Shelf Life Liquid and powder 24 months from date of manufacture when stored indoors in the
original unopened container. Storage temperature should be 40-100F and in dry conditions.
SURFACE PREPARATION Coating performance is proportional to the degree of surface preparation.
Steel Round off all rough welds and sharp edges. Remove weld spatter. Abrasive blast
with an angular abrasive to SSPC SP-10 or higher with a 1.0-2.0 mil surface profile.
Higher surface profiles up to 3.5 mils are acceptable, but the product must be applied
in a thickness great enough to achieve a minimum of 0.7 mils dry film thickness.
Apply DSP 3 as soon as possible after blasting to avoid rusting or other contamination.
Do not wait more than 6 hours between blasting and coating. Maintain relative
humidity below 75% during blasting and prior to coating application. Do not leave
blasted steel uncoated overnight. Keep moisture, oil, grease, or other organic
matter off surface before coating. Take care not to touch blasted surfaces.
Secondary surface preparation prior to overcoating
Atmospheric service Power wash with clean water to remove zinc salts, and other surface contaminants.
Allow to dry thoroughly. Power tool clean weld areas to SSPC SP-11 standards.
Immersion service Power wash with clean water to remove alkaline salts formed during curing. Lightly
sweep blast the surface and spot blast weld and burn back areas to an SSPC SP-10
condition. Anti-corrosive system should have a minimum dry film thickness of 10 mils.
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
Ambient temperatures* 50F to 100F (10C to 37C)
Surface temperature must be at least 5F above the dew point temperature.
Material temperatures 50F to 90F (10C to 32C)
Relative humidity 85% maximum (curing times can double from 70% to 85% relative humidity.
Low humidity conditions are favorable for water based inorganic zinc.)
Surface temperature 50F to 130F (10C to 54C) Surface temperature must be at least 5F above the dew
point temperature.
General air quality Area should be sheltered from airborne particulates and pollutants. Ensure good ventila-
tion during application and curing. Provide shelter to prevent wind from affecting spray
patterns. Curing in stagnant air conditions will lead to a smooth, glazed finish that will
require abrading prior to overcoating.
DSP 3
page 1/3
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Mixing Only mix full kits. Pre-mix base component with a pneumatic air mixing at moderate
speeds to homogenize the container. Add powder component slowly under agitation
until fully mixed. Strain the mixture from one container to another through a 30-60 mesh
filter/strainer to remove any undispersed lumps.
Pot life
* Maintain agitation throughout application to prevent settling of the zinc.
Airless spray Ensure equipment is completely clean and free of any solvent based thinners. Dedicated
airless equipment is highly recommended. WIWA Model # 34020 20:1 pump with
integral agitated feed tank. WIWA 500F spray gun. A 0.021 tip size is recommended.
Use a 1/4" fluid line with a maximum of 50 feet. Avoid delays in spraying and recirculate
or flush line as needed to prevent settling. Adjust pressure as needed. Flush thoroughly
with clean water immediately after use.
Air spray Ensure equipment is completely clean and free of any solvent based thinners. Industrial
equipment such as DeVilbiss MBC 510 with a 64 air cap. Use a heavy mastic spring
and leather packing to avoid sticking and packing of the fluid needle and tip. A pressure
pot with variable speed agitator, oil and water trap and separate air and fluid regulators
should be used. Instead of a pressure pot, a low pressure feed pump with recirculating
lines can be used. Limit fluid hose length to 50 feet. Promptly flush/clean with clean
water after use.
Automatic spray An Accuspray HVLPAutomatic spray head model #55ZZ or equivalent is recommended.
Brush & roll Use a high quality natural bristle. Brush application is only recommended for small
touch up and/or repair areas. Roller application is not recommended.
Repair Spot blast rusted areas in accordance with the surface preparation instructions before
touching up with DSP 3.
Thinner Not normally necessary. If necessary, thin with clean water at a maximum of 2 ounces
per gallon.
Cleaning solvent clean water
Primers Direct to metal
Topcoats Amercoat epoxies, Pittguard epoxies
A mist coat / full coat application technique is required when topcoating to prevent
application bubbling. Lightly rub dry spray from the surface prior to overcoating.
Product can be specified as a single coat system in certain applications.
Safety precautions For paint and recommended thinners see safety sheet 1430, 1431 and relevant material
safety data sheets
DRY/CURE TIMES DSP-3 @ 0.7 mils and maximum 70% relative humidity
* Surface must be clean and dry. Surface must be power washed as needed to remove all surface contaminants
including zinc salts and alkaline salts formed during the curing process. In all cases, it is necessary to rinse
the steel to remove alkaline salts prior to exterior storage. It is highly advisable to rinse the steel prior to top-
coating when steel will be subject to ponding water or condensation from high humidity conditions in service.
Rinsing should be done with clean water until the surface pH is 8 or lower as measured in several locations.
Water rinsing can take place after the cure to water insolubility time is reached.
If surface glaze develops during cure, it is necessary to abrade the surface prior to topcoating. All dry spray
must be removed from the surface by screening or light abrading.

nation
Airless spray Ensure equipment is completely clean and free of any solvent based thinners. Dedicated
airless equipment is highly recommended. WIWA Model # 34020 20:1 pump with integral
agitated feed tank. WIWA 500F spray gun. A 0.021 tip size is recommended. Use a
1
/4"
fluid line with a maximum of 50 feet. Avoid delays in spraying and recirculate or flush
line as needed to prevent settling. Adjust pressure as needed. Flush thoroughly with
clean water immediately after use.
Air spray Ensure equipment is completely clean and free of any solvent based thinners. Industrial
equipment such as DeVilbiss MBC 510 with a 64 air cap. Use a heavy mastic spring
and leather packing to avoid sticking and packing of the fluid needle and tip. A pressure
pot with variable speed agitator, oil and water trap and separate air and fluid regulators
should be used. Instead of a pressure pot, a low pressure feed pump with recirculating
lines can be used. Limit fluid hose length to 50 feet. Promptly flush/clean with clean
water after use.
Brush & roll Use a high quality natural bristle. Brush application is only recommended for small
touch up and/or repair areas. Roller application is not recommended.
Repair When dry though, measure the dry film thickness. If film thickness is lower than speci-
fied, apply additional material as soon as possible, but not to exceed 24 hours from the
previous application. Ensure any dry spray is removed.
For aged inorganic zinc coatings, spot blast rusted areas in accordance with the surface
preparation instructions before touching up with Dimetcote 21-5. When blasting is not
practical, Amercoat 68HS or Dimetcote 302H may be used for repair.
Thinner Not normally necessary. If necessary, thin with clean water at a maximum of 2 ounces
per gallon.
Cleaning solvent clean water

* Surface must be clean and dry. Surface must be power washed as needed to remove all surface contaminants
including zinc salts and alkaline salts formed during the curing process. In all cases, it is necessary to rinse the
steel to remove alkaline salts prior to exterior storage. It is highly advisable to rinse the steel prior to topcoat-
ing when steel will be subject to ponding water or condensation from high humidity conditions in service.
should be done with clean water until the surface pH is 8 or lower as measured in several locations.
If surface glaze develops during cure, it is necessary to abrade the surface prior to topcoating. All dry spray
must be removed from the surface by screening or light abrading.
** Cure to non-immersion water contact indicates the degree of curing that allows for rinsing with water to re-
move alkaline salts. Steel should be allowed to dry thoroughly after rinsing.

the application instructions for specific primers and intermediate coats for application
and curing procedures. Ensure epoxies are free from amine blush prior to overcoating.
All previous coats must be dry and free of contaminants. Adhere to all minimum and
maximum topcoat times for specific primers and intermediate coats. Aged epoxy
coatings require abrading prior to applying Amercoat 220P. A test patch over
unknown coatings is recommended.
Steel Remove all rust, dirt, moisture, grease or other contaminants from the surface.
Power tool clean in accordance with SSPC SP-3 or hand tool clean to SSPC SP-2
requirements. Alternately, abrasive blast to SSPC SP-7 requirements. For optimum
performance, blast to SSPC SP-6 or higher. Note that a primer must be used on all
bare metal substrates when using colors made from Midtone, Deeptone, and Deep
Rustic bases.
Non-ferrous metals Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner as per SSPC SP-1
and galvanizing requirements, then use a phosphatizing conversion coating. Alternately, power tool
clean to uniformly abrade the surface or lightly abrasive blast with a fine abrasive to
produce a uniformand dense anchor profile of 1-2 mils in accordance with SSPC SP-16.
Galvanizing that has had at least 12 months of exterior weathering may be coated
after power washing to remove all contaminants and white rust. Galvanized surfaces
that have been passivated with a chromate treatment must be abrasive blasted.
Coatings may not adhere to chromate sealed galvanizing if the chromates are not
completely removed.

Airless spray 28:1 pump or larger, 0.013-0.015 fluid tip
Can be applied with plural component equipment
Air spray Thin up to 20%, standard conventional equipment, 0.070 fluid orifice. A moisture and oil
trap in the main line is essential. Product is sensitive to moisture contamination.
Brush & roll Use a high quality natural bristle brush and / or solvent resistant, 1/4" or 3/8" nap roller.
Ensure brush / roller is well loaded to avoid air entrainment. Multiple coats may be
necessary to achieve adequate film build. Amercoat 851 flow control additive can be
used to for enhanced flow and leveling with brush and roll application. (use of 851
additive at greater than 2.5 oz/gal will increase the VOC to > 100 g/L.) Multiple coats
may be required to achieve proper film build and hiding with roller application.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
For use as a hot surface application topcoat

Hi-Temp 500VHA is a silicone acrylic system formulated with a highly engineered silicone resin, a
thermally stable acrylic resin and inorganic pigments. This combination allows the Hi-Temp 500VHA to
have superior color stability to 500F [260C] as compared to most generic silicone acrylic topcoats, which
tend to discolor at elevated temperatures.
Hi-Temp 500VHA is available in both standard and custom colors.
Hi-Temp 500VHA can be applied to hot substrates from 150F to 400F [66C to 204C].
Hi-Temp 500VHA does not require heat cure.
Hi-Temp 500VHA has excellent spray application properties and is resistant to cobwebbing.
Hi-Temp 500VHA is a user-friendly system, which can be brushed and rolled.
Hi-Temp 500VHA has excellent weathering and corrosion resistance when applied over properly primed
surfaces.
Hi-Temp 500VHA does not soften in thermal cyclic service.
Color stability may be affected at the top end of the temperature range.

New or Corroded Surfaces:
For corrosion resistant service, use of an approved corrosion resistant primer is necessary. Surfaces
to be coated must be primed with Hi-Temp 1027, which can also be applied to hot surfaces, in
accordance with its product data sheet. Consult Hi-Temp for alternate and approved primers. Allow
appropriate dry time. Apply one coat of Hi-Temp 500VHA at 2 to 2.5 mils [50 to 63 microns] DFT.
For cosmetic service only, an approved corrosion resistant primer is recommended but not necessary.
Abrasive blast clean to SSPC-SP 6 Commercial Blast [Sa 2] with profile of 1 to 1.5 mils [25 to 38
microns] or pressure wash to an equivalent of SSPC-SP 6 [Sa 2] condition. Surfaces to be coated
must be dry and free of salts, weld splatter, oil, dirt, grease, and all other contaminants. Apply two
coats of Hi-Temp 500VHA at 2 to 2.5 mils [50 to 63 microns] DFT per coat for a total of 4 to 5 mils [100
to 125 microns] DFT.

Previously Painted Surfaces in Good Condition:

If old coating is intact and there is no evidence of cracking, fracturing, and/or delamination, pressure
wash surface to remove all salts, oil, grease, and contaminants and apply one coat of Hi-Temp
500VHA at 2 to 2.5 mils [50 to 63 microns] DFT.

Previously Painted Surfaces in Poor Condition or with some Localized Corrosion:

If old coating shows evidence of cracking, fracturing, delamination, and/or corrosion, follow surface
preparation guidelines for new steel. If there is no evidence of cracking, fracturing, or delamination,
just small areas of corrosion (less than 10% of the area to be coated), power wash the entire structure,
removing all salts, oil, grease, and other contaminants. Once dry, perform surface preparation and
apply Hi-Temp 1027 in accordance with the data sheet on all areas where the existing paint has been
removed. Once these areas are primed and dry, apply one coat of Hi-Temp 500VHA at 2 to 2.5 mils
[50 to 63 microns] DFT over the entire surface.

Prior to application of 500VHA over other coatings, prepare a small test patch area and
test for adhesion.


MIXING, THINNING, AND CLEANUP:

Use mechanical agitation for mixing. Mix materials until uniform in consistency. Thinning is not normally
needed. If a condition warrants thinning, thin only with Hi-Temp Thinner #5. Thin only in accordance with
applicable regulations.


Application to Elevated Temperature Substrate 150F [66C] to 400F [204C]
Flush, Thin, and Clean up with: Hi-Temp Thinner #5


APPLICATION - INSTRUCTIONS TO HOT STEEL:

1. Do not apply at substrate temperatures below 150F [66C] or above 400F [204C].
2. IMPORTANT! It is essential to apply thin passes of Hi-Temp 500VHA during an application to hot steel.
This aids in allowing the solvent to escape the coating without leaving pinholes behind. This application
is similar to mist coating.
3. Flush equipment with Hi-Temp Thinner #5 before using.
4. Hi-Temp 500VHA is normally not thinned. If the situation warrants thinning, use only Hi-Temp Thinner
#5 as it is specifically formulated for Hi-Temp 500VHA. It is a slow evaporating solvent which allows for
good film integrity as the coating is being applied to hot surfaces.
5. WARNING! Do not thin 500VHA with any other solvent. A fire hazard could occur if using a different
solvent. Dry spray and poor film characteristics may also occur.
6. Do not apply a heavy coat to a hot surface or blistering will occur. If this happens, immediately take a
brush, (use wood-handled brushes with China bristles only, do not use brush with synthetic bristles), and
brush out the blister before it sets.
7. Application to hot surfaces can result in dry spray. To avoid dry spray, apply coatings without reaching.

Product: Hi-Temp 500VS
Rev: 051012 Page 2 of 3
New or Corroded Surfaces:

For corrosion resistant service, use of an approved corrosion resistant primer is necessary. Surfaces
to be coated must be primed in accordance with the Hi-Temp 1027 product data sheet. Consult Hi-
Temp for alternate and approved primers. Allow appropriate dry time. Apply one coat of Hi-Temp
500VS at 2 to 2.5 mils [50 to 63 microns] DFT.

For cosmetic service only, an approved corrosion resistant primer is recommended but not necessary.
Abrasive blast clean to SSPC-SP 6 Commercial Blast [Sa 2] with profile of 1 to 1.5 mils [25 to 38
microns] or pressure wash to an equivalent of SSPC-SP 6 [Sa 2] condition. Surfaces to be coated
must be dry and free of salts, weld splatter, oil, dirt, grease, and all other contaminants. Apply two
coats of Hi-Temp 500VS at 2 to 2.5 mils [50 to 63 microns] DFT per coat for a total of 4 to 5 mils [100
to 125 microns] DFT.

Previously Painted Surfaces in Good Condition:

If old coating is intact and there is no evidence of cracking, fracturing, and/or delamination, pressure
wash surface to remove all salts, oil, grease, and contaminants and apply one coat of Hi-Temp 500VS
at 2 to 2.5 mils [50 to 63 microns] DFT.

Previously Painted Surfaces in Poor Condition or with some Localized Corrosion:

If old coating shows evidence of cracking, fracturing, delamination, and/or corrosion, follow surface
preparation guidelines for new steel. If there is no evidence of cracking, fracturing, or delamination,
just small areas of corrosion (less than 10% of the area to be coated), power wash the entire structure,
removing all salts, oil, grease, and other contaminants. Once dry, perform surface preparation and
apply Hi-Temp 1027 in accordance with the data sheet on all areas where the existing paint has been
removed. Once these areas are primed and dry, apply one coat of Hi-Temp 500VS at 2 to 2.5 mils [50
to 63 microns] DFT over the entire surface.

Prior to application of 500VS over other coatings, prepare a small test patch area and
test for adhesion.

MIXING, THINNING, AND CLEANUP:

Use mechanical agitation for mixing. Mix materials until uniform in consistency. Thinning is not normally
needed. If a condition warrants thinning, thin only with Hi-Temp Thinner #10 or #11. Thin only in
accordance with applicable regulations.

Application to Ambient Substrate 50F [10C] to 150F [66C]
Flush, Thin, and Clean up with: Hi-Temp Thinner #10 or #11

APPLICATION:

Surface temperature must be a minimum of 5F [3C] above the dew point. Do not apply at substrate
temperatures below 50F [10C] or above 150F [66C].

Application Instructions to Hot Steel
1. IMPORTANT! It is essential to apply thin coats of the
Hi-Temp 1027 during an application to hot steel. This
aids in allowing the solvent to escape the coating with
out leaving pinholes behind. This application is sim-
lar to mist coating.
2. Flush equipment with Hi-Temp #5 Thinner
before using equipment.
3. Hi-Temp 1027 is normally not thinned. If the
sitution warrants thinning, use only Hi-Temp #5
Thinner.
4. Hi-Temp #5 Thinner is specifically formulated for
Hi-Temp 1027. It is a slow evaporating solvent
allowing for good film integrity as the coating is
being applied to hot operating equipment.
5. WARNING! Do not thin Hi-Temp 1027 with any
other solvent. A fire hazard could occur if using a di-
fferent solvent system. Dry spray and poor film char-
acteristics may occur as well.
6. Do not apply a heavy coat to a hot surface or
blistering will occur. If this happens, immediately take
a brush, (use wood-handled brushes with China bris-
tles only. Do not use brush with synthetic bristles), and
brush out the blister before it sets.
7. Application to hot surfaces tends to promote dry spray.
8. To avoid dry spray, apply coatings without reaching.

Equipment
Conventional or airless spray is recommended. For con-
ventional spray use a DeVilbiss MBC-510, (or equal),
gun with an E fluid tip and 704 air cap (or equal). For
airless spray use a Graco 205-591, 208-663, (or equal),
gun with fluid tip of 163-610, 163-315 and a Graco
Bulldog Pump at 30:1.
Adjust pressure as needed. Hold gun 10-12 from the
surface at right angles. Lap each pass 50%. When brush-
ing and rolling, use only quality brushes and rollers.
Mixing
Use mechanical agitation for mixing and during applica-
tion. Mix materials until uniform in consistency.
Thinning
Thinning is not normally needed however if a condition
warrants thinning, thin only with Hi-Temp #5 Thinner.
Thin according to local air regulations.
Clean-up
Use Hi-Temp #5 Thinner.

DESCRIPTION Graffiti Cleaner
PRINCIPAL CHARACTERISTICS Graffiti removal compound
Easy to apply
No harsh solvent odor
Biodegradable
Surface treatment for aged coatings
COLOR AND GLOSS Clear amber
BASIC DATA
Components 1
VOC 8.1 lbs/gal (976 g/L)
Flash point 183F
Environmental Conditions Use at air and surface temperatures of 60-120F (16-49C)
(Ideal surface temperatures for graffiti removal are above 70F. Below 70F longer
contact time may be needed and below 60F, many graffiti materials may be difficult to
remove. Use Amerase treatment on Kynar 500

for topcoating with urethanes.)


Shelf Life 5 years from date of manufacture
* when stored in the original, unopened container
RECOMMENDED SYSTEMS
Graffiti Removal- Test have demonstrated that Amerase removes graffiti including spray paint, permanent
markers, inks, crayons, and lipstick. When properly used, Amerase will not damage
surfaces coated with Amerase or PSX 700, even after repeated cleaning. Simply apply
Amerase to the surface and wipe with a clean cloth. Some graffiti materials become
more difficult to remove when aged, and incomplete removal may result.
Surface Treatment Amerase is effective as a surface treatment to prepare aged coatings for topcoatign.
for Aged Coatings Use Amerase treatment with Amerlock 400, Amercoat 385, or Amershield for recoating
or topcoating with Amershield when aged beyond the maximum recoat time. Do not use
Amerase treatement on Amerlock 400 or Amercoat 385 with Amercoat 861 accelerator.
APPLICATION PROCEDURES
Graffiti Removal 1. Wear safety goggles and chemical resistant gloves. Avoid prolonged skin contact
with Amerase.
2. Note that Amerase may also damage some original coatings such as acrylics. Well
cured, catalyzed coatings are typically resistant to cleaning with Amerase, but
some level of down-glossing may occur. A test patch is recommended.
3. Apply Amerase directly to graffiti by low pressure spray or by using a saturated cloth.
4. Wait approximately 3 to 5 minutes, keeping the area moist with Amerase, then wipe
with clean rags. If more than two applications of Amerase are needed to remove
stubborn stains, rinse the area with clean water and wipe dry before each additional
application.
5. Masonry walls or aged graffiti may require scrubbing with a soft, natural bristle brush.
6. Avoid Amerase contact with rubber materials such as gaskets, etc. Swelling may
occur with prolonged contact
7. Rinse all Amerase cleaned surfaces with water.
8. Allow surfaces to dry.
9. Discard wiping rags in closed containers.
AMERASE

page 1/2
Surface Treatment 1. Apply Amerase to aged coating using a soft brush, clean rags, polyethylene hand-
pump spray bottle, or industrial spray equipment.
2. Allow Amerase to dwell on the surface before topcoating as follows:
3. Topcoat treated surface before Amerase is fully evaporated.
See maximum topcoating time.
4. If Amerase is fully evaporated, re-apply Amerase to the surface.

APPLICATION Amercoat 114A can be applied via short nap roller, trowel, putty knives, squeegee or a
combination of these methods. Spread 114A across the surface applying uniform pres-
sure to achieve a smooth finish. Leave only a slight film above the surface plane.
A rounded trowel can be used to form a cove base of up to 1".
Amercoat 114A may be used to fill surface voids up to 1" in width. Amercoat 114A is not
elastomeric and therefore will not bridge dynamic cracks.

Topcoats Amercoat Epoxies, Pittguard Epoxies
Safety precautions For paint and recommended thinners see safety sheet 1430, 1431 and relevant material
safety data sheets
DRY/CURE TIMES* Amercoat 114A
** Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. However, particular
attention must be paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a
further degree of cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods.
If maximum recoat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Mixing and application Mix with a pneumatic air mixing at moderate speeds to homogenize the container.
During hot, dry conditions, the concrete may be pre-moistened with water to assist in
application of Amercoat 965 directly to the concrete or masonry.
Prime surface with Amerlock Sealer or Amercoat 965 Liquid. Apply Amercoat 965 when
Amerlock Sealer is still wet or tacky. When using Amercoat 965 liquid to prime, apply
the 965 cement within the same day and after the liquid is dry to touch.
AMERCOAT

965
page 1/3
Amercoat 965 is packaged in 2 compenents which must be mixed together before use.
A kit consists of 8 lbs of liquid and 48 lbs of powder. Do not mix more material than can
be used within the working time of 30 minutes. If necessary, mix smaller quantities at
the ratio of 6 parts powder to 1 part liquid by weight. Material which has begun to set is
unsatisfactory and must be discarded.
Power mixing using a suitable 1/2 inch power drill and mixer is recommended. When
mixing more than a unit of material at a time, a 3-6 ft
3
revolving drum mixer or mortar
mixer is recommended. The material can also be mixed by hand using a mortar box or
wheel barrel using a mortar hoe.
Shake the 1 gallon polyethylene bottle of liquid to disperse any sediment. Pour the liquid
into the mixing vessel. Gradually add powder and mix until the cement is uniformly
blended to a workable consistency.
If the cement is to be applied in thickness greter than 1/4 inch, a stiffer consistency can
be achieved by adding additional powder. For application and thickness above 1 inch or
for filling deep pitted concrete sections, add gravel to the mix. Add 36 lbs of 1/4 3/4
inch clean gravel to each 56 lb unit of material. Immediately after mixing, the Amercoat
965 cement is ready to use.
Spread and trowel to the desired finish using typical concrete finishing tools.
Clean all equipment and tools immediately with water.
Thinner Clean water

with external atomizing air. 1/2" air hose to air manifold below the air regulator.
2. Quikspray

Carrousel pump equipped with a hopper feed, spray gun and material
lines can also be used.
3. Bottom fed pressure pot outfitted with a pole gun such as a Binks 10-gallon
pressure pot, Model No. 83-5362, with follower plate and air control 83-104, fluid
hose 71-3362-1 inch, pole gun model 125 with 49 x 1/2" fluid nozzle. Set regulator
pressure at 35 psi.
4. Super Texan

hopper feed grout/mortar sprayer with a pole gun can be used.


Select a variable speed air motor.
5. For small or repair areas, use a hand held hopper gun such as a Quikspray Model
60AT. The product can also be trowel applied for small areas
Mixing Mixing ratio - Mix full units as packaged only. Mix with a heavy duty mud mixer with a
1/2" shaft and suitable power drill.
Pre-mix base component with a pneumatic air mixing at moderate speeds to homogenize
the container. Add hardener to base and agitate with a power mixer for 1-2 minutes until
completely dispersed. Slowly add powder under moderate agitation in a vortex.
Ensure powder component is fully incorporated with good off-bottom mixing. Do not
over-mix. Be prepared to apply the product due to a short pot life for this product. No
induction time is required.
Pot life
(minimize material temperatures for optimum pot life)
Application Instructions 1. Mix a unit of resin and cure for lubricating the material line (do not add powder).
2. Pump lubricant material through the pump and delivery hose, collecting the material
in a 5-gallon can. Continue pumping until all lubricant (resin and cure) is removed
from the material, follow lubricant material with a mixed unit of resin, cure, and
powder. Begin application of the 3-component material.
3. Spray in even, parallel passes. Overlap each pass 50% to avoid areas of low film
thickness. Cross spray at right angles to first pass until the specified thickness is
achieved.
4. Periodically check wet film thickness during application with a steel rule depth
gauge or other suitable wet film thickness gauge.
5. At surface temperatures of 80F or higher, two coats of Tideguard 171A may be
required to achieve a 3/16" film on vertical surfaces. Make the first application at 1/8".
Allow to cure overnight. Make a second application at 1/16" within 24 hours of the
initial application.
6. For low temperature applications, it will be necessary to add Amercoat 861
accelerator to a mixed kit of Tideguard 171A as follows:
7. When a pinhole-free coating is required, check continuity of dry, but uncured coating
with a nondestructive holiday detector such as a Tinker-Rasor Model AP at
approximately 15,000 volts. Select the proper voltage depending on the thickness
and condition of the surface as per NACE SP-0188.

8. Immediately after use, clean all application tools and spray equipment with
Amercoat 104 Cleaner followed by a clean water. Clean pump by pouring a unit of
Amercoat 104 Cleaner following 171A and run until 171A is removed from the
material line. Pour a second unit of Amercoat 104 Cleaner into the hopper and
continue circulating to remove any remaining 171A. Follow with a clean water rinse.
For thorough cleaning of the material line, disassemble and clean by attaching a
rag to a piece of wire and pulling the rag through the line several times to remove
any deposits from the side walls. Flush with water. A spare material line is
recommended so one line can be thoroughly cleaned while the other is in use. It
also allows for close inspection of the lines for wear.
9. Tideguard may receive water contact immediately after application; however, the
wet coating should be protected from splashing action which could remove the film
while it is still wet.
DRY/CURE TIMES
With Amercoat 861 Accelerator
* Dry times are dependent on air and surface temperatures as well as film thickness, ventilation, and relative
humidity. Maximum recoating time is highly dependent upon actual surface temperatures not simply air
temperatures. Surface temperatures should be monitored, especially with sun-exposed or otherwise heated
surfaces. Higher surface temperatures shorten the maximum recoat window.
Surface must be clean and dry. Any contamination must be identified and removed. Particular attention must be
paid to surfaces exposed to sunlight where chalking may be present. In those situations, a further degree of
cleaning may be required. PPG Technical Service can advise on suitable cleaning methods. If maximum re-
coat/topcoat time is exceeded, then roughen surface.
Thinner Do not thin
Cleaning solvent Amercoat 104 Water based cleaner
Safety precautions For paint and recommended thinners see safety sheet 1430, 1431 and relevant material
safety data sheets
This is a solvent borne paint and care should be taken to avoid inhalation of spray mist
or vapor as well as contact between the wet paint and exposed skin or eyes.
