Safeguard Universal ES is a two-pack, corrosion preventing, polyamide cured vinyl epoxy based coating. It has been specially designed as a tie coat for use between epoxy primers and antifouling systems, and can also be used as tie coat for a wide range of topcoats. Safeguard Universal ES is suitable for use in atmospheric and immersed environments on approved primers on aluminium, carbon steel, galvanised and stainless steel substrates. It can be applied at sub zero surface temperatures.
Normally used as an anti-corrosive undercoat for various paint systems or as a sealer coat on antifouling and provides a very good adhesion for self-polishing anitfouling as well as various topcoats (not alkyds).
