It can be used on building frameworks, bridges, refineries, power plants, conveyors and other structural steel and equipment in the heavy-duty Protective Coatings market.

The volume solids content of Temacoat HS-F Primer is 80%, so the paint has a lower VOC value compared to conventional epoxy primers. It also provides shorter drying and recoating times even at low temperatures (down to -10°C), which is a considerable advantage. Temacoat HS-F Primer can be used all year round, expanding the geographic area of application.

This high-performance primer enables a wide range of film thicknesses in one layer, which makes the painting process of complex structures easier.

Primer for Long-term Protection of Steel

Temacoat HS-F Primer is developed for the demanding, long-term protection of steel. Compared to traditional primers, it dries and cures very fast even at low temperatures typical for Northern Europe. It is truly a time-saving solution: since it is over-coatable after only two hours, you can get the job done in one day, says Michael Aamodt, Group Business and Portfolio Development Director at Tikkurila Oyj.
