Delivery forms

Aqua-Therm BC-367/832-D is supplied in 25 kg disposable containers and in 230 kg barrels.

Storage

AQUA-THERM BC-367/832-D can be stored for 12 months at room temperature in a sealed container (max. 30 °C). The impregnating resin must be protected against direct sunlight and sources of heat.

Being a water-thinnable emulsion with a very low cosolvent content, this product suffers from cold and must be stored at temperatures included between +5 and +30 °C. The stability of the product into the tank can be indedinitely extended by means of monthly addition of fresh varnish in a proportion of at least 15-20 % on the tank content. It is recommended to keep ht pH value not below 6.7.

The impregnating bath must be stirred on working days for 30 min.

Hardening

Curing is possible in a closed oven with or without preheating.

Typical curing times:

at 150 °C - 2-4 h
at 130 °C - 3-5 h
at 110 °C - 5-8 h

The curing time commences once the object temperature has been reached.

Protection

Use in well ventilated area, avoid contact with skin and eyes and wear protective clothes. For more details see the technical data sheet.

Processing

Exemplary dipping process:

  1. Dilute Aqua-Therm BC-367/832-D to the desired viscosity, thinning it with drinkable water. The recommended dilution is Aqua-Therm BC-367/832-D 100 p.b.w + tap water 30-40 p.b.w.
  2. Dip the units into the varnish for 5 min. about.
  3. Let it drain for 30 min.
  4. Bake in the oven according to one of the following cycles:
    110 °C - 5-8 h
    130 °C - 3-5 h
    150 °C - 2-4 h

(Times must be taken when unit reaches the baking temperature)
