Product Information
CRC100-H
 
Product Description
  BLUE RIVER COATINGS CRC100-H is a two-component inorganic corrosion resistant coating designed for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) to protect metal substrates from corrosion and abrasion. If gouged or damaged, the coating will not experience creepage and is repairable. The product is designed to coat surfaces that require a hard, abrasive, and chemical resistant coating that can withstand temperatures of 1,800°F. CRC100-H offers excellent durability and corrosion protection as well as being a low VOC and EPA compliant coating.
 
Environmental Advantages
  BLUE RIVER COATINGS CRC100-H is considered non-hazardous by EPA definitions and does not contain lead or chromates. The solid and semi-solid sludge produced in spraying and clean up can be dried and sent to a “Class B” landfill. Please follow local and state regulations in the proper use and disposal of this product.

Specifications
  METALS: Surface must be free of grease, oil, dirt, and other foreign matter. Scale rust must be removed.
   
Application
 

Application is by spraying or dipping. Amount of coverage per gallon is dependent upon the applicator and the equipment used. Regular air-drying is acceptable but the product can be forced cured with warm fast moving air. Insure that proper protective clothing and equipment is used during application. Wear NIOSH approved respirator and solvent resistance gloves.

Mixing Instructions for Spraying
To obtain the optimum performance, the mixing instructions for CRC100-H must be followed precisely. Each component has been precisely formulated for optimum flow and hardness characteristics.
1.   In a container, measure one (1) part by volume of Part A to one (1) part by volume of Part B. Do not use paper containers. The mixture will be thick and creamy.
2.   Under constant agitation, mix the combined parts no less than sixty (60) minutes.
     
Spraying CRC100-H
1.   For best results, the fluid nozzle on the spray equipment should a medium tip. The viscosity of the catalyzed product does not need to be tested. Once the product is thoroughly mixed, the product will be ready to spray.
2.   Spray a single wet coat of 2-4 mils (wet) or until desired coverage is achieved. Coating should be applied at approximately 2-4 wet mils (not to exceed 6-8 mils) for optimum performance.
3.   Parts can be handled in 12 hours when air-drying. Caution: Full cure may not occur for 5 days. Note: Most catalyzed systems require 10-15 days before a qualified ASTM test can be performed.
     
Mixing Instructions for Dipping
To obtain the optimum performance, the mixing instructions for CRC100-H must be followed precisely. Each component has been precisely formulated for optimum flow and hardness characteristics.
1.   In a container, measure four (4) parts by volume of Part A to one (1) part by volume of Part B. Do not use paper containers. The mixture will be thick and creamy.
2.   Under constant agitation, mix the combined parts no less than ninety (90) minutes.
     
Dipping CRC100-H
1.   Submerge clean part into the product mixture and let the excess material drip off.
2.   Parts can be handled in 12 hours when air-drying. Caution: Full cure may not occur for 5 days. Note: Most catalyzed systems require 10-15 days before a qualified ASTM test can be performed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   
Clean-Up
  Use solvent for cleanup such as acetone or MEK. Insure that proper protective clothing and equipment is used during application and cleanup.
