Dinogard

Dinogard

Characteristics :

Dinogard is a high performance coating based upon a non-oxidising synthetic polymer reinforced with specially developed hard resins and micaceous iron oxide.

The coating has excellent adhesion to clean unprimed steel, aluminium alloys, galvanised metals and a dry film thickness of 80 microns can be applied in one coat.

Dinogard can be satisfactorily applied at a relative humidity up to 95%, and at temperatures between 1  C and 35o C where dewpoint conditions do not prevail.

The coating remains flexible at sub-zero temperatures, and has excellent resistance to ultra-violet light, salt-spray, humidity, oils, chemicals and frequent steam cleaning.

Range of Use:

Dinogard’s excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates makes it suitable for application as a prolonged protection for commercial vehicle chassis, framework and for the protection of the structural steelwork in a wide range of industrial situations.

Processing:

The surfaces should be degreased with solvent, and wiped with a clean cloth. On primed or painted surfaces, the existing coating must be in good condition, cleaned with water/detergent and degreased as above.  Ferrous metal showing rust should be sanded to remove all traces, and heavily rusted areas should be blast cleaned to SA 2.5 standard.

Application: 

Dinogard may be applied by airless spray using a minimum tip size of 18 thou, with a minimum tip pressure of 2000 psi.

Dinogard may also be applied with conventional spray, brush or roller. The film thickness should be 320 microns wet (125 microns dry), and the theoretical spread at this coating thickness is 5.3 per litre.  The coating is surface dry in 25 minutes, and may be handled after 1 hour.  Full cure is reached after 24 hours.

Equipment cleaning:

Cleaning of equipment must be done whilst equipment is still wet using a xylene based paint thinner or gunwash.
