Physical properties were determined on specimens prepared under laboratory conditions using applicable ASTM procedures. Actual field conditions may vary and yield different results; therefore, data is subject to reasonable deviation. Data should not be used for specification purposes.

ConoGlaze - General Purpose No. 201 is a chemically-resistant, 100% solids, epoxy coating system. It is used as a topcoat for Sauereisen ConoCrete or FibreCrete systems or as a coating to protect concrete and steel from chemical attack.

ConoGlaze may be used in many kinds of manufacturing, processing, storage, and shipping areas. It is formulated as a general purpose sealer to resist most acids and alkalis. This material can be applied by roller or spray and provides an economical protective barrier to processing chemicals.

The ConoGlaze system should be used with an appropriate Sauereisen primer to enhance bonding. Consult Sauereisen for a primer recommendation depending on the type of substrate and surface conditions.

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Excellent resistance to food acids and by-products.
  • Authorized by USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants.
  • Easy to clean surface.
  • sColors: 25 beige, 50 light gray, 53 gray, 63 tile red and 99 white.

AREA PREPARATION

Temperature of Working Area
For optimum conditions, maintain a temperature of 60º-85ºF on air, substrate, Liquid, and Hardener components during mixing, application, and cure.

The monolithic components should be maintained at 65ºF to 80ºF for 48 hours prior to beginning work. At temperatures below 65ºF, the application becomes more difficult and curing is retarded. Above 80ºF, the material working time decreases.

Application in direct sunlight and rising surface temperature may result in blistering of the materials due to expansion of entrapped air or moisture in the substrate. In rising temperatures it may be necessary to postpone the application or apply during cooler hours.

Surface Preparation
Metal - Abrasive blast to a nominal 2.5 mil profile employing SSPC-SP5 White Metal Blast for immersion and SSPCSP10 for other service conditions. An SSPC-SP6 Commercial Blast may be suitable for mildly corrosive atmospheric exposures. All welds must be continuous, free of flux and have a smooth rounded radius without any sharp edges.

Concrete - Refer to SSPC-SP13/NACE 6 "Surface Preparation of Concrete" for detailed guidelines.

New Concrete - All structures must have the necessary strength to withstand imposed loads during normal use and operation. Surface should be floated free of ridges or depressions and all voids filled with Sauereisen Underlayment No. F-120 or No. 209 Filler Compound. The choice of underlayment will depend on the severity of the voids to be filled.

Surfaces should be sloped a maximum 1/4 inch per foot for drainage. Surfaces should be made free of oil, grease, water, and other contaminants that may inhibit bond. This can be achieved by chemical cleaning. Abrasive blast, high-pressure water blast, or acid etch concrete to remove laitance and obtain uniform surface texture exposing fine aggregate resembling sandpaper.

Old Concrete - Concrete must be dry, firm and must have the necessary strength to withstand imposed loads during normal use and operation. Mechanical methods should be utilized to remove old paints, protective coatings, and deteriorated concrete. Surfaces should be made free of oil, grease, water, and other contaminants that may inhibit bond. This can be achieved by chemical cleaning.

Abrasive blast, high-pressure water blast, or acid etch concrete to remove laitance and to obtain a uniform, sound substrate. All prepared surfaces must be allowed to dry prior to coating application. Regardless of preparation method used, all surfaces must be vacuumed to remove any loose deposits or contamination.

EXPANSION/CONTROL JOINTS

Joints are to be placed over existing expansion joints, around all fixed objects, peripheries of rooms and all points of movement in the base slab. Consult Sauereisen for recommendations.

APPLICATION

An appropriate Sauereisen primer should be applied prior to the ConoGlaze installation. This will enhance bond strength. ConoWeld No. 501 is the standard Sauereisen epoxy primer for concrete. Where porosity of concrete is a concern, PenePrime No. 500, a deep-penetrating waterborne epoxy primer, is recommended. Hi-Temp Primer No. 560 with Zinc Filler No. 561 is preferred over steel.

Mixing
Primer - Primers are supplied in premeasured containers. Remix individual containers before using.

Packaging of Primers No. 500 and 501 consists of Hardener Part A and Resin Part B which must be mixed together. Completely empty contents of Hardener Part A into Resin Part B container. Using a slow speed ½-inch drill motor with a "Jiffy" type blade, mix thoroughly until blended for three minutes. Primer is ready for use immediately after mixing.

Primer No. 560 is a single-component urethane. Ferrous substrates require the addition of Zinc Filler No. 561.

ConoGlaze - Packaging consists of premeasured unitized containers of Hardener Part A and Resin Part B. Remix Part A and B before combining. Completely empty contents of Hardener Part A into Resin Part B. Using a slow speed ½-inch drill motor affixed with a "Jiffy" type blade, mix three to five minutes until thoroughly blended.

Mix only complete batches. Material which has begun to set must be discarded. Do not add any solvent, additive, or
adulterant to any component or mixed material.

Installation
Primers - Apply primer to concrete or steel using a short nap adhesive roller with a nondegradable core or a nylon bristle brush. Consult Sauereisen for spray recommendations. At 70ºF, the epoxy primers must be allowed to cure at least eight hours, but no longer than 24 hours, prior to application of ConoGlaze. The moist-cured urethane No. 560 may be topcoated between two hours to five days after application. If recoat time is excessive, consult Sauereisen.

Prior to application of ConoGlaze, inspect primed surface for voids, bubbles, or defects that may result in blistering or pinholes in the topcoat. Repair with Sauereisen Filler Compound No. 209 Fast Set to ensure a sealed surface.

ConoGlaze No. 201
Roller application - Material should be delivered to finishers immediately after mixing.

Do not let material remain in the mixing vessel. If application is for floor areas, spread the material with a squeegee to the desired thickness. To improve the surface texture of floor applications, lightly backroll the material with a short nap adhesive roller with a nondegradable core. For vertical application, material shall be lightly backrolled to desired thickness. All finishing and backrolling must be completed within 30 minutes from mixing.

Spray application - ConoGlaze may be spray applied at a thickness of approximately 10 mils per coat. Installation by airless spray should be done with a 50% overlap in a "cross hatch" pattern to reduce the possibility of pinholes and to assure complete coverage. Recoat times shall not exceed 24 hours at 70ºF.

After ConoGlaze has sufficiently cured, a holiday detector may be utilized to ensure a continuous pinhole-free lining. Consult a Sauereisen representative for details.

The following equipment is typically used for spray application:

Airless Spray Pumps - ConoGlaze may be sprayed with a minimum 45:1 piston-primed, airless pump such as the model formerly manufactured by Graco. Alternative equipment such as the Graco 56:1 King Piston Primed Airless, Model 236-477 is also suitable. The current specification is the Graco Xtreme Sprayer X60 - MDL#X60-DH4. Remove all filters including the filter from surge tank. Other pumps may be suitable, depending on job site requirements.

Moisture Air Dryer - RFI Model DA-300 or equivalent. Moisture air dryer must be placed at least 50' from air compressor on air line.

Gun - Graco's Ultra-Lite pistol grip Flo- Gun, Model 235-628 is preferred. This gun must be combined with Seat Adapter Model 235-006. Alternatively, the Graco Flo-Gun Model 224-991 is acceptable.

Gun tip -Use Tip Housing Part No. XHD- 001 with Graco Reversa Tips MDL No. XHD with orifices of 0.025 to 0.031 inch tip works best. Alternative brand tips may be suitable, however, never use tips that contain a diffuser pin.

Material hose - 6' whip end, 3/8" i.d.; working pressure 5,000 psi, 16,000 psi burst.

Material hose - 25-75' overall, 3/4" i.d.; working pressure 4,000 psi, 12,000 psi burst.

Air compressor - 180 ft3 per minute at 100 psi, minimum.

Air hose from compressor - 3/4" to 1" i.d.: 100' maximum length to mastic pump.

Material hose - 0-25' overall, 1/2" i.d.; working pressure 4,000 psi, 16,000 psi burst.
