Suggested use

Overcoating Plasmet ‘R’ to give smooth surface finish but
can be applied directly to metal surfaces where re-building
is not required. May be cast or ground to give an excellent
surface finish for use in sealing areas.

Health & safety

Warning:When using this product safety precautions should
be observed. Avoid contact with skin or eyes. Do not ingest.
Protective clothing and goggles should be worn. Read Safety
Data Sheet before use and observe all precautions.

Surface preparation

Surface should be free from oil, grease and other
contaminants. It should also be roughened to provide a
suitable key. Where possible, for optimum performance
and adhesion, surfaces should be abrasive blasted before
application of Plasmet ‘R’ to SSPC-SP10 (IS0 8501-1
Sa 2½) or equivalent with 3 mil (75 micron) profile in
accordance with data sheet SP1. Surfaces should be

Application equipment

Brush, trowel or other suitable implement.

Application equipment

Trowel or short hair, stiff brush.


Plasmet ‘T’ should be applied thinly enough to avoid runs or
sags in the coating.

Mixing ratio / mixing

2.5:1 Base to activator by weight.
Pour all of component ‘A’ into component ‘B’ and mix
thoroughly. The material is now ready for use and should be
applied as soon as possible. Product should not be applied
at temperatures below 41°F (5ºC).

Pot life

Variable with temperature and mass, but approximately:
68°F (20°C): 50-90 minutes
86°F (30°C): 50-60 minutes
95°F (35°C): 40-50 minutes


1 and 5 gallon kits

Flash point

In excess of 212°F (100°C)

Catalyst type

Modified clyclo-aliphatic/aliphatic amine

Chemical resistance


Abrasion resistance


Mechanical strength


Cleaning solvent

Xylene, Toluene, Methyl Ethyl Ketone.

Cure time

Variable dependent upon film thickness and temperature, but
at 68°F (20°C) tack free 8-9 hours and full cure 4-5 days.
However, material may be usable in service before full cure is
attained. Post cure at temperatures up to 212°F (100ºC)
speed cure, improve hardness and aid machining, see
Should a second application of Plasmet ‘T’ be required, this
should take place within the over coating times specified


Where more than one coat is required, Plasmet ‘T’ should be
over-coated with itself within the following time periods:
Ambient temperature
32-50°F (0-10°C Minimum 24 hours, maximum 36
50-77°F (10-25°C) Minimum 7 hours, maximum 18
77-95°F (25-35°C) Minimum 3 hours, maximum 12
At low temperatures and high humidity, amine bloom may
occur, evidenced by a dull greenish tinge on the surface.
Where this occurs the bloom must be removed by abrading
the surface before over coating is carriedout.
