PHENODUR® PR 263/70B Features & Benefits
Phenodur PR 263 is specially developed as binder for shop- and washprimers. Phenodur PR 263 differs from Beckopox EM 460, wich has been developed for the same purpose, in being faster drying and less yellowing resistant.
Applications & Uses
Phenodur PR 263 is preferably used to formulate wash- and shopprimer in combination with polyvinylbutyral. The ratio between Phenodur PR 263 and PVB is usual between 25 : 75 and 50 : 50 (solid on solid). Such washprimer can be formulated as 1- or 2-component systems. Because of its low viscosity and good pigment wetting properties, Phenodur PR 263 imparts good hiding and filling power. Primers based on Phenodur PR 263 show excellent water resistance and corrosion protection.
Benzene, fuel and oilresistant coatings
Phenodur PR 263 is a suitable solebinder (with the addition of 3 - 5 % phosphoric acid (85 %) for clear or pigmented coatings on rigid substrates. Such coatings show after a few days of air-drying a good resistance against fuels, benzene and oils. This coating material can be forced dried too (e.g. 30 min/100 °C) and plastified through the additon of approx. 20 - 30 % polyvinylbutyral, (calculated on solid resin).
Phenodur PR 263 has excellent pigment wetting properties and is used preferably as grinding medium to which the polyvinylbutyral is added after the pigment wetting process. Zincphosphates and chromates are partly included in the chemical reaction of the wash primer`s curing process, thereby improving the quality to the primer with regard to weather resistance. Any other extenders and pigments employed should be resistant to phosphoric acid.
Depending on the form of use and required coating thickness, the stoving conditions are between 30 and 10 minutes at 180 - 220 °C. The upper temperature limit where overstoving begins to occur and flexibilty accordingly starts to decline is 220 °C. For thin film such as can coatings, conditions of 10 - 15 min/190 - 200 °C are adequate, or 90 s/265 °C (shock curing). Good resistance to chemicals is obtained as from 190 °C onwards.
a) One pack system: about 5 % phosphoric acid (85 %), calculated on total binders (solid);
b) Two-pack systems: about 5 - 10 % phosphoric acid (85 %), calculated on total binders (solid).
An excess of more than 10 % phosphoric acid may promote subcoating rust development. To avoid the processing difficulties that may occur when the paint formulation is mixed with phosphoric acid it has been found useful to dilute the acid in advance with n-butanol in a ratio of about 3 : 1. Since Phenodur PR 263 is severely discolored by dissolved metall ions, especially those of iron, it is advisable to use iron free phosphoric acid (85 %).
