Specifications enamel XC-436 Application of XC-436 enamel for painting (characteristics and properties)

Can the simplest paint protect the steel bottom of a ship from corrosion?

Naturally not, since it is not intended for this. But imported special materials are unreasonably expensive, and especially with the current rise in the dollar.

It turns out there is a solution! The enamel XC-436, the characteristics of which are so incredible, is specially designed and made for painting the underwater part of ships and boats, as well as in the area of ​​variable waterline (abbreviated as PVL), and such a coating can be freely purchased anywhere in Russia, and the manufacturer will offer the most favorable conditions.

General information

XC-436 - what is it

So, a few facts about enamel:

  1. Means XC-436 belongs to the class of two-component enamels on an epoxy-vinyl base and is used for painting surfaces that are made of steel.
  2. It is specially designed for ship hulls for use in water and also at the air-water interface, in the area of ​​variable waterline.

  3. The coating will be resistant to gasoline, fuel oil, diesel fuel, oils, and also sea salt.
  4. The application of enamels will prevent corrosion and the spread of rust.
  5. After polymerization, the enamel composition has excellent mechanical strength - it is recommended to cover the PVL area in the icebreaker hull.
  6. Enamel of this type has a certificate of conformity and can meet the norms of TU 2321-011-60414707-2014.

Next, consider what the scope is.

Scope of enamel use

Initially, this enamel was developed for industrial use in ship repair and shipyards for processing steel hulls both inside and out. Underwater surfaces, when painted in four layers, will retain their protective properties for 4 years, and the three-layer coating in place of the PVL is advised to renew the instructions once every 2 years. In addition to the main use, such enamel has perfectly proven itself when used as a coating for bridge supports and port facilities. At the moment, the use of such a paint and varnish product was found even in everyday life. Where you can find such enamel:

  • Specifications enamel XC-436 Outer coating on the underwater part of the hulls of ships.

  • Product of the waterline zone, and also the PVL coating.
  • Internal painting of hulls, covering will have hold structures.
  • Painting of bridge supports.
  • Painting of metal airlock structures.
  • Protection against rust of berths, landing stages, and other port facilities.

  • Subsea pipeline coatings.

Now, a little from the composition.

Characteristics, composition and cost of enamel

Now other characteristics:

  • Vinyl chloride copolymer enamel , and is made of the main component, as well as the AF-2 hardener.
  • The main component is a whole complex of fillers and pigments, embedded in vinyl epoxy resin.
  • The form of packaging is 25 kg buckets or 50 kg drum.

  • Enamel colors are green, black and red-brown.
  • The coating will be smooth or semi-matte.
  • Has a pungent chemical aroma, and will evaporate after polymerization.
  • The shelf life is 12 months, and it can be increased after checking according to TU 2312-011-60415707-2013.
  • Certain manufacturing companies - Russian color, Lakokraska-Ya, Deltaplast, Khimprom-M, and also PKF Spectr.

  • The selling price for 1 kg will be from 120 to 170 rubles, and the final price will depend on the delivery time, volumes and colors.

Now let's look at the technical properties.

Viscosity according to a special device VZ-246 with a nozzle at 0.4 cm, +20 degrees

30 s

Consumption for layer thicknesses from 50 to 70 microns From 0.235 to 0.

325 kg per square meter ( 1 liter for 3.5 to 5 square meters)

Time for the layer to dry at a temperature of +20 degrees 3 hours before the second stage according to GOST 9.402
Fractional content of non-volatile substances From 40 to 45% by weight, as well as from 23 to 27% by volume
Lifetime of adding hardeners Not less than 8 hours at a temperature of +20 degrees


Application technology

The main stages of the painting process, the materials used and the requirements for surfaces are listed in the table.

Preparatory stage for the surface
  1. Mechanical cleaning from old coatings, rust and dirt
  2. Processing with a brush, emery paper and sandblasting machines
  3. Degreaser with solvent P-4
Surface to be treated Other epoxy coatings and pre-primed surface
Priming prior to application VL-023, KhS-010, AK-070 and EP-0263 S
Application conditions
  • Airless spray or roller preferred
  • Air spraying and brush is possible
Diluting agent P-4 and P-4A
Hardener AF-2, and it is included in the delivery set
Preparation for use
  1. Stir the contents to total volume
  2. Stir by adding hardener
  3. Leave at 1 / 3-1 / 4 hours
  4. N apply the enamel to prepared surfaces
Application temperature Temperature from -15 to +30 degrees, and humidity will not exceed 80%
Intermediate drying time Two to three hours
Underwater application Four coats
Application in place of PVL Three layers

After polymerization, it is possible to apply an antifouling coating. Household use is allowed, subject to certain precautions - working in an open space or in a well-ventilated area, the use of skin and respiratory protection is mandatory.

Reviews of consumers

Manufacturers of XC-436 try to make their products the best, but since the main circle of consumers is average and older people, there are not so many reviews about enamel. Nevertheless, we managed to ask several people about their impressions of the use of enamels.

  1. Specifications enamel XC-436 Vladislav, engineer, Vladivostok: "We have been purchasing XC-436 for a long time and in large quantities at the Yaroslavl plant. The quality of the product is good, and there were no warranty cases due to claims for painting the underwater part of the hulls from the client side. Delivery is paid by the plant itself, and the cost is beyond competition, and imports are much more expensive with a similar quality.


  2. Georgy, painter, Kimry, shipyard: "What can I say - the paint is good, and it is easy to paint with it, the hiding power is excellent, and it also dries out very quickly. You will have time to cover 2-3 layers per shift. from one batch, and the packaging is very convenient. "
