Description: 

Protal ARO is a VOC free, 100% solids liquid epoxy coating formulated to be applied over FBE as an ARO coating (abrasion resistant overlay). It is a 3:1 ratio compatible for most plural component spray units coating that can be spray or hand applied in the field or shop. Protal ARO is used to protect FBE mainline coatings and over Protal 7200 on girth welds during directional drilling, bores, river crossings and other rough terrain applications.

After sweep blast wipe entire surface with MEK or approved solvent to remove all dust and other surface contamination. The equipment should be a plural component airless spray unit with a proportioning pump capable of a volume mixing of 3:1. Standard ancillary equipment should include minimum 10 gallon hoppers, static mixers, whip hose and spray gun. (Applicator should consult with Denso regarding recommended equipment). A wet on wet spray technique should be used to achieve the required film thickness. A wet film thickness gauge should be used to measure mil thickness.
