VBM201 is a high solids waterborne, low VOC, tough and durable, rubberized coating formulated to provide a vapor barrier against hazardous fumes in industrial environments. Manufacturing processes that use acid baths and fertilizer storage facilities are some of the areas that can greatly benefit from VBM201 barrier properties. The corrosive fumes in these environments attack the steel infrastructure elements such as unpainted steel support frames, corrugated steel roof panels, etc., rapidly degrading their useful life. Infrastructure replacement and down time add needless costs to the overhead burden. VBM201 with its unique resin and extender matix provides the barrier features necessary to slow down and prevent the corrosive fumes attacking the exposed steel or diusing through the painted surfaces.

VBM201 is lead free, fume and odor free and does not contain ingredients considered hazardous to humans, animals or the environment. Its water based makeup allows for easy application and cleanup. It has a strong affnity for all metals, especially galvanized steel and does not require priming or other intervention prior to application. Subsequent coats may be applied after a simple pressure cleaning process. It may be custom ordered in special colors and in a Class A level re retardant format at an additional charge.

VBM-201 Application

VBM-201 may be applied by brush, roller or low pressure airless sprayers. When applying multiple coats allow some drying time between coats. VBM-201 cures via air drying and at 77°F and 50% RH the coating will be dry to the touch in about 30 minutes. The curing process continues over 48 hours to achieve optimal properties. The surface to be coated should be clean and free of grease, oils and other debris. Do not apply at temperatures below 50°F or above 90°F. Avoid heavy buildup, puddling, and overlapping.

VBM-201 Coverage

Coverage per gallon will be approximately 200 square with (2 liberal coats) with a resultant dry lm thickness of 4 mil (approx. 1.0+ mm). VBM201 is formulated to protect against oil, grease, fuels, and other spills and prevents and inhibits the formation and growth of mold, mildew and algae.

VBM-201 Cleanup

Clean spills and spatters immediately with clean water. Clean hands and tools immediately after use to prevent the coating from setting up as the dry coating will be dicult to remove. If the application is via spraying, ush spray equipment with sucient amount of clean water to prevent any residue of VBM-201 staying in the system and clogging up the mechanism.
