FIELDS OF APPLICATION

EcoMetal Urethane is excellent finish paint for interior and exterior applications on all types of materials. EcoMetal Urethane is an alkyd oil paint alternative with exceptionally high UV resistance, high resistance to atmospheric conditions, and is applicable in residential, commercial, marine, and industrial environments. Product can be applied to iron, aluminum, steel, galvanized steel, concrete, tile, glass, all types of caulks, wood, plastic, and sheetrock. EcoMetal Urethane is a Gloss level 2 finish, which when dried, creates a highly scratch resistant surface, suitable for all types of metal and non-metal surfaces where durability is a priority. EcoMetal Urethane is both waterproof and oil proof. This product is a water based urethane paint product providing superior adhesion than acrylic, or waterborne paints.

EcoMetal Urethane is specifically designed to create a cast iron finish, creating a mica effect, ideal for designer quality upper-tier finishes, and is tinted with natural oxide earth tints and 0% VOC colorants to increase esthetic color values with minimal impact to the environment and to provide toxic free air quality for indoors. EcoMetal Urethane is an Environmental Low Impact paint material as described in the Eco Category description.

EcoMetal Urethane is a primer anti-rust inhibitor, used both for new and older metal structures, and as final finish paint.

PRODUCT FEATURES

EcoMetal Urethane is a thick coat metal protection paint for priming, intermediate and final coats on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, hot dipped steel components and non-anodized aluminum.

EcoMetal Urethane provides excellent adhesion on ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Double acting corrosion protection through inclusion of special anti-corrosive pigments and fillers. Scale-shaped fillers prevent quick diffusion and active pigments slow down the start of corrosion on metal surfaces. The thixotropic properties provide very high dry film thickness on vertical surfaces and on edges. This protective property creates a surface with more or less texture when used on larger surfaces, depending on the application process and conditions.

EcoMetal Urethane can be applied on almost any type of non-metal surface, creating a unique special effect paint finish that offers a dynamic and dimensional effect, yet providing durability and performance.

A 100% urethane alkyd paint product, non permeable, provides good anchoring power, with excellent resistance to scratches, water, and oils. Product is concentrated and requires dilution with water, has very low odor, easy to apply, mimicking traditional oil or lacquer paints, low drip/paint run ratio, with elastic capabilities suitable for exterior surfaces. Product is considered an earth friendly product, ideal for use in homes, schools, and hospitals, and work sensitive areas.

This paint product is an oil proof, washable finish that cannot be damaged by foods, greases, body oils, color crayons, or washable colored markers. Cleaning does not change the sheen of the paint. Paint touch-ups are simple but may require whole wall repaints, particularly for sprayed finishes.

TYPE OF PRODUCT

Urethane alkyd coating with organic stabilizers composed of aluminum mica particles.

SHEEN FINISH

Flat/Satin, Gloss Level 2.

COLOR

Silver Base. Color tint up to 8% max with approved tints. Custom color tints matching are available.

APPLICATION CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS

BRUSH AND ROLLER APPLICATIONS

1ST COAT     Dilute EcoMetal Urethane typically with 10% water, 250 ml to one (1) 2.5-liter bucket, maximum 15% water, 375 ml to one (1) 2.5-liter bucket of EcoMetal Urethane. Always test coverage with minimal dilution prior to adding additional water. For better coverage and sheen results it is advised to prime surfaces with EcoPrimer Urethane, a universal urethane primer, for masonry surfaces, wood or sheetrock. When using a tinted primer base, one (1)-application of EcoSatin Urethane may be sufficient for a finish coat. It is not advised to use roller application except when necessary, as the roller nap may create an undesirable finish. In such cases it is recommended to a neoprene-type roller cover. An appropriate sprayer will use less material and create highly desirable finishes. Hand brushwork will reflect visible brush strokes. Apply paint in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved. Allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours before applying 2nd coat. Wash paint brushes immediately with soap and water after completion of use. Do not allow paintbrushes to stand outside beyond 5 – 10 minutes. Rinse brushes immediately with water or stand in water during short painting breaks. Product is usually tack free within 4 – 8 hours depending on humidity and temperature. Product will dry within 24 hours. When possible, allow EcoMetal Urethane approximately 72 hours drying time to permit proper handling and transport. Allow 14 days to achieve maximum durability.

2ND COAT      Allow 24 hours of drying of 1st coat before applying a 2nd coat. Dilute EcoMetal Urethane same as above. Apply paint in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved. For repaints with EcoMetal Urethane using light colors on dark colors, 2 finish coats may be required. Product is usually tack free within 4 – 8 hours depending on humidity and temperature. Product will dry within 24 hours. When possible, allow EcoMetal Urethane approximately 72 hours drying time to permit proper handling and transport. Allow 14 days to achieve maximum durability.

PAINT SPRAYERS

1ST COAT     Dilute EcoMetal Urethane typically with 10% water, 250 ml to one (1) 2.5-liter bucket, maximum 15% water, 375 ml to one (1) 2.5-liter bucket of EcoMetal Urethane. Always test coverage with minimal dilution prior to adding additional water. For better coverage and sheen results it is advised to prime surfaces with EcoPrimer Urethane, a universal urethane primer, for masonry surfaces, wood or sheetrock. When using a tinted primer base, one (1)-application of EcoMetal Urethane may be sufficient for a finish coat on non-metal surfaces. Apply paint in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved. Using a good quality sprayer is imperative. Best results can be achieved using either a compressor siphon feed spray gun, a gravity spray gun with 4 – 5 bar pressure, or a high quality airless sprayer for fine finishes, with high and low pressure options. A professional spray application will consume less material and create very desirable finishes and sheens. Product is usually tack free within 4 – 8 hours depending on humidity and temperature. Product will dry within 24 hours. When possible, allow EcoMetal Urethane approximately 72 hours drying time to permit proper handling and transport. Allow 14 days to achieve maximum durability.

2ND COAT     Allow 24 hours of drying of 1st coat before applying a 2nd coat. Dilute EcoMetal Urethane same as above. A 2nd coat may not be necessary usually using a correctly tinted primer base when applying on non-metal surfaces. For repaints with EcoMetal Urethane of light colors on dark colors, a 2nd coat may be required. Product is usually tack free within 4 – 8 hours depending on humidity and temperature. Product will dry within 24 hours. When possible, allow EcoMetal Urethane approximately 72 hours drying time to permit proper handling and transport. Allow 14 days to achieve maximum durability.

Clean all surfaces to be painted carefully before application of coat with a sprayer. Insure that the area to be painted is free of rust, grease and dust, prior to painting.

SPRAY TIP USAGE     Apply paint product with a titanium tip no. 1.2 mm size spray tip for airless sprayers, and a titanium no. 2.0 mm spray tip for compressor spray guns. Always use new spray tips for starting a paint job for best results. Test spray capacity of spray tip before starting production work. This will also conserve the amount of paint necessary to complete the job. Note* It is not advised to rest compressor fed spray gun without use for over 15 minutes as water-based urethane paint may partially dry and clog in spray gun or pistol. If this occurs, flush out sprayer with denatured alcohol or lacquer thinner several times to remove clogged guns or tips, and then flush several times with water to remove solvent cleaning materials.

TOOLS

Apply with brush, roller, or with an appropriate sprayer and sprayer tip. New sprayer tips should be used to prevent product waste and provided for a more perfect finish. A titanium spray tip should be used when large areas will have to be covered.

DRYING TIME

Allow a drying time between applications of coats of at least 8 – 12 hours. Product is usually tack free within 4 – 8 hours depending on humidity and temperature. With lower temperature and humidity more time may be needed. If sanding is required between coats, allow 24 hours of drying prior to sanding. When possible, allow 72 hours to permit proper handling and transport after application of final coat. Allow 14 days to achieve maximum durability. Ideal temperature for application is between 13°C / 55°F – 27°C / 80°F.

CONSUMPTION/COVERAGE

Approximately 65 ft2 – 85 ft2 / 6 – 8 mt2 per 1 liter bucket diluted with 10% – 15% water, 2 coats.
130 ft2 – 170 ft2 per 1 liter bucket diluted with 10% – 15% water, 1 coat. US Gallon equivalent coverage 490 ft2 – 630 ft2 for 1 coat coverage. Determine exact consumption by performing a test on the surface to be treated.

PACKAGING

Plastic buckets 1 and 2.5 liters.

APPLICATION CYCLES ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF BASES

Make sure base is solid, dry and well cleaned, prepared with skill. It is recommended to observe the rule VOB DIN 18 363, Part C, paragraph 3. All exterior painted surfaces should be checked on a regular basis after 4 – 5 years to ensure that the paint product has remained intact, without damages, cracks, or fading, and if so repaints should be made immediately. After 7 – 8 years all exterior painted surfaces should be re-painted so as to maintain the quality of the original surface and not permit damage or decay to the urethane paint.

STEEL/IRON/GALVANIZED STEEL/ALUMINUM

Sand all metal surfaces to provide a rust free and smooth surface as is possible, previously painted or non-painted. Apply EcoMetal Urethane applying with a brush or sprayer as indicated in the instructions above. For exterior metal surfaces, it is required to apply two (2)-coats of EcoMetal Urethane onto all surfaces. EcoMetal Urethane can be painted onto solvent-based metal primers, ensuring that such primer is completely dry before painting. On large flat areas it is advised to spray paint all surfaces. For small areas or detail work use a high quality finish paintbrush to ensure a smooth a finish. Product cannot be applied to anodized aluminum surfaces.

After 2 years, it is advised to inspect exterior painted metal surfaces, particularly previously painted surfaces that were painted with ‘other’ types of enamel paint. If rust has appeared, address damaged areas and remove rust as is possible and spot prime as necessary with EcoMetal Urethane, and then at least 1 coat of EcoMetal Urethane as directed above.

For all metal surfaces, it is advised after 4 – 5 years to make careful inspection of interior and exterior painted surfaces and if EcoMetal Urethane is beginning to fade, or show signs of distress, or wear, it is advised to spot prime all areas where the finish surface has been removed by chips, scratches, or damages, sanding those areas lightly to provide an even surface and apply 1 coat of EcoMetal Urethane to re-protect surfaces and provide a new painted finish.

If after 7 – 8 years regardless of the lack of damages, stress, or fading, all exterior painted surfaces should be repainted so as to protect the original painted surface and ensure additional trouble free service of a high quality paint finish.

NEW SHEETROCK

Prime all new sheetrock with 2 coats EcoDomus Matte, sanding lightly between coats, using a paint sprayer for application. Allow primer paint to dry for at least 8 hours. Apply one (1)-coat of EcoPrimer Urethane with a paint sprayer, and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours, then lightly sand. Remove all dust from area to be painted. Lightly wipe wall surfaces with a damp cloth or tack cloth to remove all traces of dust. Apply EcoMetal Urethane according to instructions.

PAINTED SHEETROCK

Lightly sand all surfaces prior to applying 1 coat of EcoPrimer Urethane with a paint sprayer, and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours, and then lightly sand. Remove all dust from area to be painted. Lightly wipe wall surfaces with a damp cloth or tack cloth to remove all traces of dust. Apply EcoMetal Urethane according to instructions.

UNPAINTED WOOD
