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.

Sauereisen ConoThane Glaze provides outstanding gloss and color retention along with excellent resistance to abrasion and chemicals, including solvents. This product matches the performance of baked finishes and may be used on properly prepared and primed substrates of nearly any composition. ConoThane Glaze No. 310 white and clear are
U.S.D.A. approved. The product is suitable for both interior and exterior environments.

ConoThane Glaze may be used on metal buildings, ships, offshore equipment, chemical plants, water towers, structural
supports, tanks, bridges, heavy equipment, floors, or other surfaces where maximum chemical, solvent and weather resistance is demanded. Not recommended for direct application over zinc rich primers, unprimed galvanized or concrete surfaces or in areas of continuous food contact.

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Apply by spray, brush or roller
  • Chemical resistant.
  • Authorized by USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants.
  • Meets performance MIL-C-83286, MIL-C-83445.

AREA PREPARATION

Temperature of Working Area
Maintain a temperature of 60°-90°F on air, substrate, Liquid, and Hardener components during mixing, application, and cure. The material components should be maintained at 65°F to 85°F for 48 hours prior to beginning work.

At temperatures below 65°F, the application becomes more difficult and curing is retarded. Above 80°F, the material working time decreases.

Application in direct sunlight and rising surface temperatures may result in blistering of materials due to expansion of
entrapped air or moisture in the substrate. Concrete that has been in direct sunlight must be shaded 24 hours prior to application and remain shaded until after the initial set. When the surface temperatures are rising, it may be necessary to postpone the application or to apply during cooler hours.

Surface Preparation
Metal - Abrasive blast to a nominal 2.5-mil profile employing a near white metal SSPC-SP10 finish. All welds must be continuous, free of flux and have a smooth rounded radius without any sharp edges. For applications over metal surfaces, ConoThane Glaze should be used in conjunction with an appropriate epoxy or urethane primer.

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 are to be filled with Sauereisen UnderlaymentNo. F-120, Filler Compound No. 209 or Universal Block Filler No. 509. The choice of underlayment will depend on the severity of the voids to be filled and the type of primer specified. Surfaces should be sloped a maximum of 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 coarse sandpaper. For applications over new concrete surfaces, ConoThane Glaze should be used in conjunction with an appropriate epoxy or urethane primer.

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 laitance, old paints, protective coatings, and attacked or 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 obtain uniform sound substrate. All prepared surfaces must be allowed to dry prior to the primer application.

Structural cracks should be repaired with Sauereisen Filler Compound No. 209 or Universal Block Filler No. 509, and all slopes reestablished with Underlayment No. F-120 prior to applying an appropriate epoxy or urethane primer.

Prior to application of the ConoThane Glaze, inspect the primed surface for voids, bubbles or defects that may result in blistering or pinholes in the lining. Repair as necessary to ensure a sealed surface.

Other substrates - ConoThane Glaze is commonly used as a topcoat over other basecoat materials. In these applications, apply ConoThane Glaze while the basecoat is still tacky. If the basecoat has cured significantly, contact Sauereisen for recommendations.

APPLICATION

Mixing
Stir No. 310 Part B component to assure even dispersement of pigment. Mix the 'A' and 'B' components together (3 to 1 ratio) thoroughly and allow 15-minute induction time before application.

Installation
Apply ConoThane Glaze by conventional, airless, or HVLP spray equipment. Material should be applied at a nominal 3.5 mils to achieve the necessary 2.0 mils dry film thickness. ConoThane Glaze can also be brushed or rolled.

It is very important to use an NIOSH-23Capproved respirator when spraying ConoThane Glaze. Do not apply Conothane Glaze over lacquers. Do not apply ConoThane Glaze when surface or air temperatures are below 60°F or above 90°F. Do not apply if rain is threatening or if surface temperature is with 5°F of critical dew point.

COVERAGE

Estimated coverage is 450 square feet per gallon at 3.5 mils wet film thickness.

PACKAGING
