Carboguard 890 is an epoxy mastic coating that is highly chemical resistant. This product offers a wide array of uses in various industrial sectors. Carboguard 890 is also suitable for self-priming and is ideal for use over surfaces with existing coatings or rust.
You can also use Carboguard 890 as a stand-alone system in various chemical and immersive environments. As per the product datasheet, if you wish to enhance the corrosion protection properties of the Carboguard 890, you can buy a micaceous iron oxide additive, also known as MIO fillers.
This procedure will also enhance the film strength for a prolonged and aggressive service in severe environments such as industrial or marine.

- Oil and Gas Midstream
|Generic Type||Cycloaliphatic Anime Epoxy|
|Available Colors||It is available in a combination of more than 400 colors. However, the low-temperature formulation may cause discoloration of most colors or turn them yellow. For that reason, certain colors may require more than a single quote for hiding.|
|Primer||Self Priming with approx 4 to 5 mils or 102 to 152 microns per coat|
|Dry Film Thickness||For uniform gloss finish over inorganic zinc: 6 to 8 mils or 150 to 200 micronsFor over light rust: 6 to 8 mils or 150 to 200 microns However, do not exceed the 10 mils or 250 microns mark for a single coat application. In the case of dealing with inorganic zinc, this can cause damage during use.|
|Solid Content||Volume 75% with a variation of up to 2% higher or lower|
Surface Preparation Chart
Here is a quick information on surface preparation for various surfaces
|General Surface||The surface must be dry and clean. You must remove all residue or contaminate.|
|Surface preparation for steel||In the case of Steel Immersion: SSPC-SP6 1.5 to 3 mils, i.e., 38 to 75 microns SSPC SP2 or SSPC SP3, is suitable for cleaning under a mild environment. You can also use SSPC-SP10 non-immersion for the same. In the case of Galvanized Steel SSPC-SP 16: You must create 1.5 to 3 mils or 37.5 to 75 microns anchor profile|
|Surface Preparation for Concrete||You must design, place, cure, and prepare the concrete or CMU concrete. Prepare per NACE No. 6/SSPC-SP 13. This also involves abrading the surface to remove any loose concrete, laitance, etc. this is compulsory in order to create a surface profile ready for the coating system. Moreover, the concrete must also pass the moisture tests|
