What are the most common applications for EonCoat?
The most common applications for EonCoat are in the oil & gas industry. Petroleum storage tanks, internal and external, top the list. Pipeline exteriors are also a common usage with interior diameter work underway. Power plants, marine terminals and process equipment round out the bulk of the current oil & gas industry usage of EonCoat.
Can EonCoat be applied over existing rust and corrosion?
With EonCoat, only a NACE 3 / SSPC-SP 6 commercial sandblast cleaning is typically necessary.
Can EonCoat be colored?
EonCoat is only available in white. However, a Top Coat can be applied with any color you like.
Does EonCoat need a Top Coat?
Depends on the application. EonCoat does not need a top coat to protect from corrosion. However, topcoats have many benefits. Durability, Color, & Physical Protection to name a few.
What does the preparation process entail?
Only a NACE 3 / SSPC-SP 6 commercial blast cleaning is typically necessary. There is no need to blast to NACE 1 or 2 since slight oxidation on the surface allows for the best chemical reaction.
Can the speed of reaction be slowed down to increase working time before it is cured?
There are various ways to decrease reaction time, but they are specific to the material being coated and environmental factors. EonCoat will advise you on this during the consultation.
What spray thickness is recommended?
How thick can EonCoat be applied?
One pass will give approximately between 3 and 6 mils (75 to 150 microns). You can make multiple passes immediately without runs or sags. There is no limit on the thickness that can be applied in a single application with multiple passes. The dry film thickness (DFT) and wet film thickness (WFT) are equal because there are no solvents.
Do I need special equipment in order to apply EonCoat coatings?
EonCoat is a two-component system applied using a plural (2K) spray gun. The coating uses a 1:1 ratio and sprays on using standard plural spray equipment that mixes at the nozzle of the spray gun. The process requires no heating equipment but an air compressor is necessary for plural spray equipment.
What does the certification process entail?
Training is at our facility or yours. We teach you how to use the equipment, the application process, and how to recognize proper EonCoat reactions. Experienced painters generally pick up the technique and understand the minor differences in a few minutes. We recommend one day of training to allow ample time to cover maintenance of the equipment, troubleshooting, and understanding the technology. EonCoat has a huge weather application window, generous surface prep allowances, and the ability to apply very thick coatings in one application. To be able to take full advantage of these features it is useful for the applicator to understand why and how.
Who can apply EonCoat?
EonCoat coatings can be applied by either:
If overspray happens on adjacent surfaces can it be easily removed?
Depending on the amount of overspray. Typically a small amount of overspray can be removed with a pressure washer. If a large amount has bonded. Sand blasting might be necessary. Our training team will educate your staff on the process to minimize overspray.
Is overspray a problem?
Minimally, since EonCoat dries in seconds so material that doesn’t go directly onto the substrate immediately after leaving the spray gun will generally dry before it floats anywhere else.
How should left-over EonCoat be disposed of?
Mix equal amounts of part A with part B to get an inert ceramic rock (MgKPO4.2H2O) which can be disposed of anywhere you would dispose of rock or other inorganic materials.
Do you have an EonCoat distributor near me?
There may be an EonCoat distributor near you.
If you are unable to find a distributor or certified applicator near you, please contact us so that we can arrange direct shipment to you.
What EonCoat guarantee or warranty do you make?
How do I buy EonCoat?
EonCoat can be purchased through an EonCoat distributor or by contacting us directly.
