Ceramic Brushable Blue Epoxy Coating
Ceramic Brushable Blue is a blue coloured, ceramic-filled epoxy coating which is brush applied to protect and seal surfaces from abrasion, cavitation, erosion and pitting.
It can be applied to new and repaired surfaces and is reinforced with silicon carbide, setting to an ultra-smooth finish to reduce damage caused by abrasion. It provides excellent protection against corrosion and chemical attack, and is effective on metals, wood and most plastics.
Ceramic Brushable Blue is typically used to repair heavy damage to silos, chutes, mills, pumps, metal castings, tanks and other machine parts subjected to high-wear and abrasion.
When used in conjunction with Ceramic Brushable Green, a two-layer wear indicator coating can be created. Once the lower coating begins showing through the upper, it is possible to identify worn areas which require further protection via re-application of epoxy.
With a 90 minute gel time, Ceramic Brushable Blue can be mixed in larger quantities without the worry that it will cure before completion. Sylmasta recommend the use of Ceramic Brushable to clients in warmer climates because of this longer work time.
A faster working version with a 45 minute gel time is available upon request. For more information, please contact Sylmasta.

Ceramic Brushable Blue Epoxy Coating Details
Before applying Ceramic Brushable Blue, surfaces should be free of paint, rust and grime before being roughened up through either grit blasting or grinding with a coarse wheel or abrasive disk pad. Full instructions detailing the preparation process can be found on the Technical Data Sheet and are provided with the product.
Ceramic Brushable Blue should be applied as soon as the preparation procedure is completed. To ease the mixing process, the resin container has enough room to dispense all the hardener into the resin, so that it can be applied with a brush straight from the container.
The epoxy is brush applied and each coating should be 0.5-1.00mm thick. To ensure a pinhole-free coating, at least two coats are needed. The re-coating time between coats is approximately 4-8 hours after applying. A full functional cure is achieved 24 hours after the final coat at 22°C.
The light consistency of Ceramic Brushable Blue makes it easy to mix and apply with little sag. It is virtually odourless, with no unpleasant smell, can be easily machined and is temperature resistant to 150°C.
To create a two-layer wear indicator coating, a topcoat of one colour of Ceramic Brushable is applied over a basecoat of another colour. When the basecoat colour begins to show through, it is an indication of high-wear. Another coating of epoxy should be added for further protection.
