Series 135 | Chembuild

Generic Type Modified Polyamidoamine Epoxy
Common Usage High-build coating with superior wetting for marginally prepared rusty steel and tightly adhering old coatings. Excellent abrasion-, chemical- and corrosion-resistance. Perfect foundation for aliphatic-polyurethanes. NOT FOR IMMERSION SERVICE.
Colors DC74 Off-White, 1243 Metallic Aluminum and more: refer to Tnemec Color Guide.
Note: Epoxies chalk with extended exposure to sunlight. Lack of ventilation, incomplete mixing, miscatalyzation or the use of heaters that emit carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide during application and initial stages of curing may cause yellowing to occur.
Finish Semi-gloss
Primers Steel: Self-priming
Galvanized Steel and Non-Ferrous Metal: Self-priming
Topcoats Series 6, 30, 35, 66, L69, L69F, N69, N69F, V69, V69F, 73, 84, 104, 115, 161, 1028, 1029, 1070, 1071, 1072, 1074, 1074U, 1075, 1075U. Note: When topcoating with Endura-Shield polyurethane finish, exterior exposed Series 135 has the following maximum time to recoat: Series 73, 1074/1074U or 1075/1075U, 60 days. Series 1070, 1071 or 1072, 14 days. If these times are exceeded, an epoxy intermediate coat or scarification is required before topcoating. Refer to appropriate topcoat data sheet for additional information.
