APPLICATION DETAILS

 

Surface pre-treatment

The insulator surface to be coated should be clean and free of dust and grease. For cleaning the following operations are suggested:

  • Proper cleaning by using water and a suitable detergent might be sufficient.

  • Insulators that show an adhering pollution, such like cement, other mineral or chemical pollution layers should be cleaned by either "cob corn-" or carbon dioxide blasting.

  • Any type of grease or fatty pollution is to be removed by using a suitable solvent like benzine or turpentine. Residual contaminants should be removed by thoroughly wiping.

  • Finish the cleaning just before spraying MIDSUN HVIC with Isopropanol or an equivalent alcohol.

  • Proper stirring is recommended before the material is used.

Coating Application

MIDSUN HVIC is preferably applied by spraying. It can be applied by brushing or dipping as well. When airless spray pump is used, the following equipment settings are suitable: Flat nozzle of 0,33 mm, 20°, Setting of pressure output 50 - 150 bar.

Usually two or three coats is sufficient to obtain the recommended minimum thickness of 380 microns. 

Each coat can be applied as soon as the previous coat becomes tacky (not entirely dry!). This can be anywhere up to 30 minutes, depending on the ambient temperature and humidity. The full curing time is approximately 1 hour.

Rain can damage the coating. In case of rain, please protect the job site or stop application.

COATINGS SELECTION GUIDE
Midsun HVIC w/Quartz Silica

Midsun HVIC w/Quartz Silica is part of Midsun HVIC RTV Coatings. This specific formulation contains Quartz Silica as a filler. Midsun HVIC w/Quartz Silica is a one-part room temperature vulcanising (RTV) silicone coating providing long term, maintenance free, flashover protection of high voltage insulators in polluted environments, with high resistance to corona, ultraviolet light, water erosion, atmospheric and chemical degradation. Solvent: Mineral Spirits.
