Using Epoxy Primers for longer paint life on Frangible Towers

Using Epoxy Primers for longer paint life on Frangible Towers

Have you ever seen a non-porous finish on a tower or any frangible structure? Well, that's the work done by an Epoxy primer. It is a sealer that is primarily recommended as the first base coat over any bare frangible structure. For that matter, Epoxy primers can be used over plastic, black iron, and fiberglass, etc. for coating.

 

Key attractions of Epoxy primers

 

Epoxy primers are widely used due to

    - Strong adhesion

    - Mechanical ability

    - Durable nature 

    - Substrate penetration

    - Lower Viscosity 

    - Elimination power for air bubbles and pinhole 

    - Chemical resistance for humid and aqueous environments 

    - Corrosion resistance

      - Moisture tolerance 

    - Thin-film build-up 

    - Damp-proof membrane


Epoxy primers have excellent adhesion and can be used for

    - All bare composite material surfaces

    - Coat metal containers like those containing acidic food

    - Waterproof materials to protect from oxidation

    - Due to high-build thickness thus they are recommended for external environments with an application of one or two coats

 

How to apply Epoxy primer?

 

Primarily, a very clean and dry surface is needed for applying epoxy primer. Since epoxy primer acts as a sealer thus it produces an excellent surface finish on the application of the right number of coats. For your information, a corrosion-resisting pigment is present in the two-part epoxy primer in the form of zinc phosphate so ensure that you get a latest dated manufactured product. Since a two-part epoxy primer needs two components that are cured chemically through cross-linking so mix the two-part epoxy primer thoroughly before applying. This two-part epoxy primer leads to the generation of a film or coat which is completely resistant to moisture, abrasion, and any other chemicals.

 

Quality assurance from SGS Frangible for longer paint life by using epoxy primers on its frangible towers

 

With formulations penetrating deeper into the pores of the substrate, SGS Frangible uses epoxy primer on frangible towers and other composite structures to achieve a better mechanical bond. It is ensured that their adhesion comes out to be greater than the topcoat for longer paint life due to the inclusion of adhesion promoters.

 

Furthermore, specialist primers are used on composite structures to cope with a range of situations from rising damp to dust, unstable substrates to oily surfaces, and so on. Due to the penetration capabilities of professionally formulated primers for frangible towers and other composite structures of SGS Frangible, a superb chemical bond with the subsequent topcoat gets generated.

 

With all the benefits that can be gained from using an epoxy primer on frangible towers and poles, we assure you of the best adhesion, a durable and long-lasting investment.
