Polyglass VE Veilcoat

Product reference: 2/32

Product title: Polyglass VE Veilcoat

Valid from: 27th November 1997

Last reviewed: May 2019

Type: A resin rich two-pack cold cured vinyl ester/ acrylic co-polymer containing small quantities of wax.

Suggested use

As a veil/topcoat in aggressive chemical environments which would otherwise attack the glass present in Corroglass and Polyglass products.


Not designed for use as a stand-alone product. Where possible the product should not be overcoated with itself or other products due to the wax within the system.Recommendations regarding repair and overcoating are available from Corrocoat Technical Services.

Health & safety

Before handling or using this product, the material safetydata sheet should be read, and all precautions observed.

Surface preparation

Metals: Grit blast to SSPC-SP10 (ISO standard 8501-1 SA 2½ near 3) or equivalent. (For full details refer to Corrocoat Surface Preparation SP1).

Application equipment

Airless spray or hand application. Graco King 30:1 (or greater) or similar airless pump, 10mm diameter (3/8”) nylon lines.Large bore type mastic gun with 20-30 thou reversible or titan adjustable tip.

Mixing ratio

98:2 base to hardener.

Volume solids

This material contains volatile liquid convertible to solids. Volume solids obtained will vary dependent upon polymerization conditions. Nominally 99.5% of the contents are convertible to solid

Practical spreading rate

94 sf per gal at 12 mils (2.3m²/litre at 300 microns) dft.NOTE: This information is given in good faith but may increase dependent upon environment conditions, the geometry and nature of work undertaken and the skill and care of application. Corrocoat accepts no responsibility for any deviation from these values.

Temperature limits

230°F (110°C) immersed. No known lower limit. 329°F (165°C) non-immersed.

Specific gravity

0.03lbs/cubic inch (1.07 gcm-3) mixed

Hardener type

 Corrocoat catalyst P2-45.

Pot life

Approximately 50 minutes at 68°F (20°C), will vary dependentupon temperature. Please refer to Polyglass Application Datasheet.


Do not add any thinners to this product. Addition of styrene should only be carried out when specified by Corrocoat Technical Services.


1 Gallon and 5 Gallon kits (including catalyst and inhibitor).

Storage life

6 Months at temperatures below 68°F (20°C) and away from direct sunlight. Frequent temperature cycling will shorten storage life. See other information for extension of shelf life.

Color availability

yUnpigmented or off white only.

Recommended DFT

8-16 mils (200-400 microns)

Theoretical spreading rate

134 sf per gal at 12 mils (3.3m²/litre at 300 microns)


Overcoating of this product is not recommended. Should this be required please consult Corrocoat Technical Services. Once the maximum overcoating time has been reached, the adhesion values attained by any subsequent coat will reduce dramatically. It is important to observe maximum overcoating times and note these will vary with climatic conditions. Any further application of coating at this juncture should be treated as a repair, with the surface flashed over to provide a physical key.Styrene cannot be used to reactivate the surface and may in some cases impair adhesion.

Cleaning solvent

Methyl Ethyl Ketone etc – before gelation.
