Non acid epoxy primer – superior adhesion

03 November 2010, contain 6 pages  ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Epoxyden-wash primer is two a component Epoxy paint suitable, as a primer, for nonferrous metals such as Aluminum, Zinc (including galvanized steel) and their alloys. It is based on special resins and pigments providing excellent adhesion to the metals. Epoxyden wash-primer creates a strong basis, which is the first condition, for stable top painting.



  • Excellent adhesion to: zinc (including galvanized steel), aluminum and their alloys without acids (which creates dangerous etching that if PH is not neutralize the remain acid prevents adhesion of top layer and/or burns the pigments of the top layer and shows stains like fade or make the paint peel)   .
  • A strong and durable primer for top paints.
  • It has excellent mechanical strength.
  • Resistant to scratches.
  • Resistant to diluted alkali or acids as well as to extreme humidity.
  • Durable for dry heat up to 200OC for short exposure time.
  • Suitable as primer paint for various top paints such as polyurethane, epoxy, chlorinated rubber, syntactic etc.
  • Easy to apply, dries quickly.
  • High coverage as a very thin layer needed.
  • Durable in fuels, oils, jet fuels etc.


  • Primer paint for metals such Al, Zn (including galvanized steel) and their alloys
  • Primer paint for constructions made of galvanized steel, and elements from aluminum and galvanized steel in industrial uses.
  • Primer for aluminum and galvanized steel for aviation uses.

  • The information listed in this section is according to the laboratory conditions (temperature, humidity etc.) which the products were tested.
  • The recommendations listed do not hold any responsibility for this product.
  • Theoretical and actual coverage area are different concepts, the actual coverage is affected by the required thickness of the layers, required number of layers, painting conditions including the amount of paint which spread in the air before touching the surface.
  • The information listed in this section is based on experience and accumulating data, Denber inc., has the right to change the information listed at any time.
  • Paints that have been in stagnation or exposed to air more than needed could have their qualities changed.


  • Storage room temperature 15°C to 25°C.
  • Over Spray: An effect which occurs in the spraying of paints application. A type of “dust” is created by dry gases of the air, which causing the paint particles to fall dry on the surface (hereafter the “effect”). The impact of this “effect” becomes stronger due to over pressure and heat, (most sprayers have a lever to control the   pressure) To avoid the negative impact 0f the “effect”, the pressure of the spraying should be lowered to the necessary minimum!. Another possibility is to increase the amount of the thinner in the mixture which would cause the paint particles to fall wetter on the surface.

An additional recommended possibility, to avoid this “effect”, is to add a retarder to the mixture which increases the duration period of the painting application , avoiding the paint to  dry up, and enabling it to reach the surface wetter, Thus a better painted smooth  layer is formed.

  • Pot Life : The working time which is possible to paint a mixture of two components, A+B (or more) without spoiling the qualities of the paint or disqualifying the paint as “out  of use”.
  • Spray: It is possible to spray with a sprayer that has a container holding the paint that sprays it with air pressure.
  • Airless: a device with a piston which compresses the air for spraying paints. The pressure might be high (over 100atm.) Don’t aim it at anyone
  • Surface preparations: the level of cleanness is determined by international standards. Surface preparations, including cleansing sand blasting, is important & critical factor in achieving an optimal result for painting adhesion on a certain surface. These standards are equally compared to the standards of the Swiss SA, the German-Din the U.S SSPC SP                   For each standard in any level there are indicators, for sale,  in order to make visual comparison between the cleansing of the surface and the indicator.
