|Generic Type||Silicone Alkyd|
|Common Usage||A high solids, single component, silicone-alkyd finish coat that provides superior color and gloss retention over conventional alkyd enamels. Primarily used for coating primed or previously painted steel and galvanized steel substrates. Versatone incorporates a 30% copolymerized silicone-alkyd resin, which provides unmodified maximum performance.|

|Primers||Steel: Series 37H, 66, 88HS
Galvanized Steel and Non-Ferrous Metal: Series 27. Note: Series 27 exterior exposed for 3 weeks or longer requires an epoxy-polyamide intermediate coat or scarification prior to topcoating with 2H, 23 or 82HS. Brush blasting with fine abrasive is the preferred method of scarification.
|Intermediate||Series 2H, 23, 82HS. The intermediate coat color should be noticeably different but in the same family as the topcoat color.|
|Volume Solids||61.8 ± 2.0% †|
|Recommended DFT||1.5 to 2.5 mils (40 to 65 microns) per coat. Note: Number of coats required will vary depending on color, substrate (surface) and other variables. Contact your Tnemec representative.|
Curing time varies with surface temperature, air movement, humidity and film thickness.
Water Tank Exteriors: Five days or more curing time required before filling with water.
