Reskote T-Guard protects deck steam lines, steam valve manifolds and windlass steam chests from the destructive and costly effects of corrosion on sea going vessels and has proven to be especially effective against the very severe conditions found on chemical and product carriers.
Reskote T-Guard is a viscous, high build compound that requires only minimal surface preparation and is easily applied by brushing… no more messy and wasteful smearing of greasy material. Reskote T-Guard withstands higher temperatures for longer periods than any similar product and drastically reduces repair and maintenance cost.
Reskote T-guard withstands higher temperatures for longer periods than any similar product and even proved to be effective on inert gas scrubber inlet elbows and expansion bellows where temperatures do not exceed 225°C.
Reskote T-Guard, when applied to cold surfaces, will skin over and be dry to touch within 6 to 8 hours after applying. The body of the coating however, will remain semi-fluid for several months at ambient temperature depending upon the applied film thickness.
Double Overlapping Pigment System – Provides extra tough but flexible film, improved adhesion to substrate, resistance to abrasion plus resistance to UV, moisture transmission and washout.
Solvent Free – Environment friendly, very high flash point, extra safety margin for use, handling, storage and shipment.
Surface Preparation :
Scrape off loose rust and flaking paint, chip off large rust deposits, sweep or blow with compressed air to remove loose rust and dirt particles, wipe oily deposits off with thinner and ensure that surfaces are thoroughly dry.
Simply brush on at 1 to 1,5 millimeters thickness. After application, allow minimum of 24 hours curing at ambient temperature before putting steam on line.
To determine the approximate number of pails required for pipe lines, use following formula :
Pipe Dia. Pipe Run
(mm) X 3,14 X (meters) X 1,1 = Pails Required
