UltraCorr ACX-W QD

Waterborne Thin Film Sol-Gel Coating for Anti-Corrosion

Product Description

ULTRACORR ACX-W QD is quick drying waterborne sol gel nano-composite polymeric material, when applied as coating on metal substrates; it protects the metals from various corrosive chemicals. These coatings are particularly suitable for direct to metal (DTM) application for corrosion protection.

Typical Applications

  • Direct to metal application (Galvanized Steel, Aluminum, copper, brass, bronze and alloys)
  • Metal structures
  • White Goods
  • Underbody structures
  • Nuts & Bolts and other galvanized articles

Benefits & Advantages

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Easy to use, no fumes/smell during application
  • Waterborne Sol Gel
  • Quick drying hard film
  • Excellent corrosion protection
  • RoHS Compliance
  • Suitable for both low temperature (-5oC) and high temperature (150oC) condition

Application Guideline

Surface Preparation:

The surface of the pretreated substrate must be cleaned thoroughly from deposits like finger prints, debris particles form release and slip agents or other process aids left from the manufacturing step.

  • ULTRACORR ACX-W QD is ready to use material
  • The application of the coating is conducted under normal temperature and surrounding conditions
  • Stir well before using the coating solutions
  • The liquid solution can be applied by using dip process or spray
  • Curing time can be enhanced by putting in front of air ventilation or halogen light source
  • Cured at room temperature, handleable surface dry by 5-10 mins
  • Use water to thin down the material and for all cleaning purpose when the material is wet (once dried coating is insoluble in water, must clean mechanically)
  • If viscosity reaches to 30 sec, which usually happen after 3 hrs @30oC, add 5% of water and stir it well to adjust to application viscosity
  • Application viscosity shouldn’t be less than 22 sec

Cure for 20-30 minutes at 140oC

  • When applied out-door, don’t apply materials below dew point and maintain substrate temperature below 50oC
  • Avoid rain during application till the surface is enough dried
