Product description

DESCRIPTION: FAKOLITH FK-100 FoodGrade is a high-performance, two-component, modified BPA compliant epoxy FoodGrade paint with 100% solids content, low voc, low odour and CE marking, with improved drying and curing conditions. FK-100 FoodGrade is a food contact epoxy paint that ensures limitation of toxic migrations, generates a high-gloss impermeable film that is easy to clean and disinfect, with water at temperatures of up to 90ºC. The excellent covering and vapour barrier effect qualities of this paint ensure that it will function as an excellent waterproofing agent and long-term anticorrosion treatment, when applied to sand blasted SA 2.5 metal or in combination with a compatible anticorrosion primer. Compatible with most duly primed mineral and metallic surfaces, lacquer-finish sandwich panels and previous, well adhered coats of compatible paints and/or primers, resistant to cross-cut test Class 0-1 UNE-DIN EN ISO 2409:2007. FK-100 FoodGrade is highly resistant to abrasion UNE EN ISO 5470-1:1999 and to aggressive chemical attacks UNE EN 1504-2:2005 (chemicals compatible for epoxy), with a UNE Shore hardness of 80±5 units, Shore D EN ISO 868:2003 (23±2ºC; 50±5%Hr), covering Class 1 (300 µm dry film) and wet scrub resistance Class 1, DIN EN 13300. Paint resistant to the most used disinfectant and cleaners compatible with epoxy resins according to Tests DIN EN ISO 4628-2: 2004-01 by TÜV SÜD Germany and/or Fakolith R&D+i (For more security, before use, ask your case to our Tech. Department). Available in the most frequent industrial colours (Serial RAL white-cream 9010).

FOODGRADE FDA and EU TECHNOLOGY: FK-100 FoodGrade is certified as food contact epoxy paint suitable for direct, occasional and indirect contact for repetitive use with nearly all kind of foodstuffs and beverages, according the Official Research Project "FDA & EU FOODGRADE COATINGS RTC-2016-5067-2" that Fakolith has leaded together with the Technological Center AIMPLAS. As a novelty, complies with the 2 standards for food contact paints of international reference, both the American FDA 21 CFR 175.300 and the European Regulation EU 10/2011, in addition to complying with all the rest of the in force regulations for food contact materials, EC Regulation 852/2004, Regulation 1935/2004 / CE, Regulation EC 1895/2005, separate production under HACCP and Regulation EC 2023/2006 GMP, as well as RD 847/2011 and all their subsequent updates. FK-100 FoodGrade has the mandatory Compliance Declaration - with all the tests and rules for food contact, traceability and good praxis manufacturing that the product and the manufacturer comply. Health Authority Registration FAKOLITH: RGSEAA ES-39.005259/T and ROESP E-0043-E.

BIOFILMSTOP SANITARY TECHNOLOGY (treated article BPR Art.3 and FDA 21 CFR 175.300): FK-100 FoodGrade combines FoodGrade Technology with BioFilmStop Inhibition Technology, highly resistant to biofilm and bacteria, ISO 22196:2011 (Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, Bacillus subtillis, Pseudonomas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enteritidis, Legionella pneumophila...) also notably improving HACCP, food safety and asepsis in the user company.,

RECOMMENDED USE: FK-100 FoodGrade epoxy paint is specifically formulated for the protection and finishing of surfaces that come into direct, ocasional or indirect contact with nearly all manner of foods and drinks, in line with current European and American regulations, and is for application to the insides of food tanks and silos, food transport elements, skirting boards, floors, walls, ceilings, objects, machinery, installations, structures, etc. located at indoors. Generally, for use in the food industry, the health sector, the pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industry, construction and civil engineering. Read limitations at TDS.

HOW TO APPLY: Following adequate preparation of the surface and having confirmed the suitability of the environment, FK-100 FoodGrade paint can be applied by brush or roller, or for finishes and optimum applications using AirMix or Airless type spraying equipment with heated hose (or automatic heated spraying equipment where mixture A+B is done at gun). Slowly pour component B into component A, mix together gently using an electric mixer avoiding air occlusion, for at least 2 minutes or until the components have blended completely together. When mixing always use complete batches of component A and component B, to avoid errors in the mixing ratio. Plan carefully its application, bearing in mind its short pot-life of the mix. Should it be necessary adjust the viscosity of the paint by thinning with minimum required quantity of the special FoodGrade solvent, FK-45 Solvent OEM FG.

ATTENTION TO THE CONDITIONS OF APPLICATION AND CURING: Drying time and the waiting time for the second coat depend on layer thickness, temperature, relative humidity and ventilation. The environment and base temperature should better be higher+ 10ºC and the relative humidity should not be higher than 80%. The surface temperature of the base to be painted should always be at least 3 °C above the dew point to avoid condensation. It is estimated that the ideal application temperature is around 23ºC and 50% relative humidity. If environmental conditions are not appropriate for its application and curing, these should be artificially adapted. Epoxy paint should not be in contact with water or surface condensation during the first 72 hours of curing, or the paint may not cure properly, appearing "Amine Blush" wash spots.

DEPOSITS OF FOOD LIQUIDS: In general, the film will present its complete curing, from 7 days from last coat for contact with food and drinks (cured at 23ºC, 50% relative humidity, layer> 300 microns dry). At a lower temperature and / or higher humidity and layer, the curing time can be significantly increased. On the other hand, if the temperature conditions are higher, the humidity is lower and / or there is less thickness, the curing time can be significantly reduced. Before filling a tank that has been coated with FK-100 FoodGrade, the complete curing of the film should be properly checked, as well as at least an initial cleaning on the entire surface, with clear water, or preferably with neutral soap and later rinse.

FORCED DRYING: in general, applications with forced drying with hot air dehydrated can greatly reduce the drying, curing and commissioning time. An example of this can be the application in interior of pipes, where specialist companies after the application with own systems and special equipment, artificially circulate a current of hot dehydrated air through the pipe , and after checking the correct curing, shorten the usual commissioning time under their responsibility and know how.

OTHER GENERAL APPLICATIONS: this paint offers good general resistance, at least after 72 hours of curing, although we recommend not exposing the paint film to severe chemical-physical aggressions until it has been cured for at least 1 week (walls, floors, ceilings, food contact).

AVERAGE YIELD: according to recommended coat thickness, depending on use of FK-100 FoodGrade

- Dry thickness = Wet thickness: 200 µm - consumption is 260 gr/m² - a yield of 3,85 m²/kg.
- Dry thickness = Wet thickness: 300 µm - consumption is 390 gr/m² - a yield of 2,56 m²/kg.
- Dry thickness = Wet thickness: 350 µm - consumption is 455 gr/m² - a yield of 2,2 m²/kg.
- Dry thickness = Wet thickness: 400 µm - consumption is 520 gr/m² - a yield of 1,92 m²/kg.
- Dry thickness = Wet thickness: 500 µm - consumption is 650 gr/m² - a yield of 1,54 m²/kg.
- Dry thickness = Wet thickness: 795 µm - consumption is 910 gr/m² - a yield of 1,10 m²/kg.
