Protective Coating for Stainless Steel
Our stainless steel formula EPC 7460A has been specifically formulated for coating buildings, cladding, balconies, balustrades and all other externally exposed architectural structures. This formulation is the hardest wearing of our coatings, though remains flexible enough to withstand the expansions and contractions of the coated surface and is guaranteed not to crack, peel or yellow. The formulation contains higher levels of salt resistance enabling total protection against salt air, salt fog and salt water.
Our formula EPC 7460A is maintainable indefinitely continuing to protect the stainless steel for years.
EPC7460A - Unique Properties
Antioxidant - With built in antioxidants the coating is crystal clear and leaves a finish that enhances the natural look of the stainless steel whilst protecting the surface from oxidisation and corrosion.
Application - The application procedure must be adhered to for guaranteed result. Large applications are applied exclusively by one of our trained and authorized applicator teams.
Self-annealing - Due to the self-annealing properties of the coating, applying additional coats years later is a simple process. Additionally if the surface becomes scratched or damaged in any way, simply coating the damaged area and creating an invisible repair.
Self-levelling - In cases where the surface of the metal to be coated has been damaged by oxidization or rusting, the cleaned surface may be pitted or rough. The self-levelling properties of the coating will leave a smooth finish, filling the pit mark, therefore not allowing dirt to build up within them.
Sealed finish - The coating provides a completely sealed finish, due to the thermo plastic properties of the coating forming a second skin type protection. Sealing around all types of panel joint, fixing screws and rivets. During application the wet coating is drawn via capillary action into joints, laps, rivets and under screw heads.
Corked Joints - The coating will seal corked joint efficiently, however, it is NOT recommended to coat any exposed soft rubber or neoprene joints.
Screws, rivets and laps - Coating over screws, rivets and laps completes the sealed surface, not only coating the heads but also via capillary action the wet coating is drawn into the crevasses. This process is maximized with the application of multiple coats. The flexibility of the coating allows for movement due to expansion and contraction. If screws are removed at any time they can be simply recoated when they have been replaced therefore completing the seal once again.
If there are weirs / vents or large panel gaps then water seepage or leakage may occurs distributing dirty or contaminated water or condensation onto the coated surface. This will not affect the protected surface and any dirty water can be simply wiped or rinsed off, although if light it will self-clean with rain water. Prevents Fingerprints and Grease spots - The coated surface is protected from fingerprints, grease spots. Ideal for internal stainless steel such as lift doors, hand rails, balustrades, cladding and structures.
