Monoguard is an ideal high performance system for steel where abrasive blast cleaning is not practical or economically viable. It is an alternative to a three coat zinc rich primer, high build epoxy and polyurethane system. Applied to a dry film thickness over 260 microns it is recommended for highly corrosive C5-M coastal and heavy industrial environments.

Monoguard is fast drying, touch dry in an hour and overcoatable in two hours. Up to three coats can be applied in a single day enabling high productivity for steel fabricators and reduced site costs when maintaining existing facilities.

Monoguard is environmentally compliant with low VOCs and low odour, ideal for hygiene sensitive locations such as hospitals, schools and public buildings. It can be applied alongside normal business operations with the minimum disruption.

Monoguard  can be applied by Airless spray, brush or roller on steel, CorTen steel, cast iron, aluminium, stainless and galvanised steel. A single coat of Monoguard is recommended over weathered galvanised steel and previously painted surfaces. Two coats are recommended for long term corrosion protection on steel in C5M environments (1400hrs salt spray ASTM). It can be applied up to 100 microns in a single coat by airless spray, two coats may be required to achieve the recommended DFT by brush or roller. It is resistant to continuous temperatures of up to 80°C
