Temcoat™/Temcoat™ 3000 is a high-temperature microcrystalline wax-based coating compound that will not melt and can be applied at ambient temperatures up to 230°F They do not require a primer or curing time and are easily applied by hand. Temcoat 3000 is designed to maintain spreadability at lower temperatures.
Temcoat and Temcoat 3000 are used as an anticorrosion compound for aboveground and belowground surfaces. They can be used as a cold-applied coating with a wrapper or as a priming paste with Wax-Tapes®. Because of their paste-like consistency over a wide temperature range, they are an excellent material for filling voids. They can be used for straight pipe, irregular fittings and flat surfaces.
Wire brush and wipe the surface clean of any loose coating, rust, scale and foreign matter. Then apply Temcoat by hand directly to the surface. At higher temperatures Temcoat can be applied by brush. On wet surfaces rub and press firmly to displace moisture and ensure adhesion. For belowground applications to protect Temcoat from mechanical abrasion, overwrap with Poly-Ply™, Guard-Wrap™, # 1 Wax-Tape® or #2 Wax-Tape®. For aboveground applications, overwrap with #2 Wax-Tape.
