Saffro Mellow Coatings And Resins



Two component air drying aromatic polyurethane finish coating

Recommended Use :-

It is recommended as topcoat for Original Equipment Machines, Hygienic, Maintenance painting where mild chemical resistance along with good abrasion resistance and decorative finish are required. Sometimes it is recommended as undercoat of finish coats application for economic benefits.

Surface Preparation

This being a Topcoat, which is applied over underneath primer or intermediate coats, the surface should be free from oil, moisture, dust and dirt. Aged coatings should be roughened by emery paper grade 400 / 600 followed by solvent wipe for better bonding.

Application Data :-

MIXING RATIO : Base : Hardener (As per our recommendation)
APPLICATION : By Brush / By Conventional spray / By Airless Spray
THINNER : Type 290
POT LIFE : 3 hours min at 30° C
OVERCOATING INTERVAL : MIN : 8 hours MAX :24 hours
COMPATIBILITY : Can be applied over Epoxy and Polyurethane primers, intermediate coats and topcoats.

Application Method

Stir the Base part thoroughly. Mix the base and hardener as per our recommended ratio, by volume. Stir the mix gently to attain homogeneity. Add Thinner Type 290 into the mix, if required, depending on application method, and stir gently for few minutes. Allow the mixture to stand still (maturation) for about 10minutes to initiate the reaction. Strain the paint through Nylon filter cloth 400 mesh size and apply uniformly over the surface. All equipments used for above should be properly cleaned.

Application :-By Brush / By Conventional Spray / By Airless Spray

Generally no thinner is required for Brush application, however under adverse environmental conditions about 5% of thinner, by volume, can be added. Apply evenly in crossed manner and ensure the uniformity. Use quality brushes for paint application

For Conventional Spray application :-

Thinner : Type 290
Addition : 5 - 15%
Nozzle Orifice : 1.2 -1.4 mm
Nozzle Pressure : 40-70 p.s.i.

For Airless Spray application :-

Thinner : Type 290
Addition : Max 5%, if required.
Nozzle Orifice : 0.28 mm
Nozzle Pressure : 1400-1800 p.s.i.


1. Do not apply paint when temperature falls below 10°C or rises above 50°C and when Relative Humidity is above 85%, Do not apply during rain, fog, or mist. Surface temperature must always be minimum of 3°C above Dew point.

2. Brushes and spray equipment should be cleaned with SAFFRO's recommended thinner otherwise equipment is liable to be damaged.

3. Volume Solids will vary depending on shades. Products with different volume solids are also available on request.

4 DFT variation can be obtained by change in application method / thinning ratio.

5. Shelf life indicated is minimum for this Product in sealed conditions and it is subject to re-inspection thereafter. Individual component is required to be stored in cool, dry and covered condition, away from heat and ignition.

Health & Safety

This is a solvent based paint and care should be taken to avoid inhalation of spray mist or vapour as well as contact between the wet paint and exposed skin or eyes.
