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.
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.

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

Corrocoat catalyst P2-45.
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).
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.
yUnpigmented or off white only.
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.
Methyl Ethyl Ketone etc – before gelation.
