A brushable, high performance ceramic-filled epoxy for sealing, protecting and repairing surfaces subject to erosion, corrosion and wear.
Intended Use: Seal and protect new equipment exposed to erosion and corrosion; protect pump casings, impeller blades, gate valves, water boxes, and fan blades; rebuild heat exchangers, tube sheets, and other water circulating equipment; top coat for providing exceptionally smooth surface to repaired surfaces

|Functional Cure||16 hrs.|
Working conditions: Ideal application temperature is 55°F to 90°F. In cold working conditions, directly heat repair area to100-110°F prior to applying epoxy and maintain at this temperature during product cure to dry off any moisture, contamination or solvents, as well as to achieve maximum performance properties.
LARGE SIZES (3 lb, 4 lb, 25 lb): Use a propeller-type Jiffy Mixer on an electric drill. Use model HS-1 for 3 lb and 4 lb kits. Use model ES for 25 lb kit. Mix until color is uniform and consistent.
Note: Keep propeller below liquid line, as additional air can be added to mixture, resulting in air bubbles on the surface of the finished product.
Apply two thin coats (10 - 20 mils) of Brushable Ceramic to ensure a lack of pinholes or holidays on the substrate (a low voltage, holiday detector will ensure a pinhole-free coating). Brushable Ceramic fully cures in 16 hours, at which time it can be machined, drilled or painted.
For greater thickness - Use Brushable Ceramic as a coating in combination with Ceramic Repair Putty. For proper wear and adhesion, maximum thickness should not exceed 40 mils.
For ± 70°F Applications - Applying epoxy at temperatures below 70°F lengthens functional cure and pot life times. Conversely, applying above 70°F shortens functional cure and pot life.
Storage: Store at room temperature, 70 °F.
Compliances: Approved for use in meat and poultry plants (red only)
Chemical Resistance: Chemical resistance is calculated with a 7 day, room temp. cure (30 days immersion) @ 75°F)
