Tikkurila Launches Hardener 008 5610 for its Temacoat GPL-S Primer for Use in Low Temp.

Published on 2014-03-31. Author : SpecialChem

Tikkurila Temacoat GPL-S Primer has been given new properties. With the new hardener 008 5610, the product can be used even during winter in temperatures below zero.

There has been a long-term need to develop a primer with good application properties in winter time. This was achieved simply by changing the hardener in one of the best-selling primers such as Temacoat GPL-S Primer. The epoxy primer now is even more universal for the needs of constructors – just change the hardener and the primer can used in below-zero temperatures.

The two-component, high-build, polyamide-cured epoxy primer Temacoat GPL-S Primer has an excellent adhesion to steel. The tests successfully confirmed that even application on surfaces at -10°C gives good results. It should, of course, be remembered that the temperature of the paint itself should be above +15°C and the drying time is longer compared to that in ambient temperature.

The new hardener 008 5610 also dries faster at 0°C compared with the standard hardeners 008 5600 and 008 5605, for which this temperature is the lowest application temperature.
