JET SET PRIMER TYPE B
DESCRIPTION Jet Set Primer is a cold-applied, fast-drying Synthetic Primer consisting of chlorinated rubber, synthetic plasticiser and solvents. Jet Set Primer is quick-drying and hence coating and wrapping application can be finished within minutes. Jet Set Primer produces a suitable and effective bond between the metal and subsequent coating of Plasticised Pitch (Coal Tar Enamel) with improved electrical insulating properties.
STANDARDS Jet Set Primer is meets all the latest International AWWA C203, BS 4164 and Indian specifications IS: 10221.

COVERAGE On a new pipe surface Jet Set Primer - Type B has a coverage of 9-11 sq. mtr/litre. Old or rough pipes require 10-40% extra depending upon surface. Coverage rates vary, depending on site conditions and type of equipment used.
APPLICATION METHODOLOGY Surface Preparation: Pipe should be free of chloride contamination which, if any, should be removed by water spray. Before blast cleaning by shot and grit, the surface should be free of foreign matter, dust, oil or grease. The pipe should be pre-heated to 40-50 °C. All metal surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned by blasting to remove all rust, scale and other impurities from the surface exposing the base metal all over, to a grayish matt appearance to SA 2½ having surface profile 65 to 80 micron. The blasted surface should be free from any adhering dust. Adequate air separators should be used to effectively remove all oil and moisture from the air supply into the blaster. Jet set Primer should be applied by spraying or brushing as the case may be. In case of spray air less spray is to be used. The primed pipe should be allowed to dry for minimum 15 minutes before application of enamel. When atmospheric temperature is low and/or has high humidity the primed pipe shall preferably be pre-warmed on line before entering the coating booth. The primed pipe should have a uniform film of primer, free from runs, drips or missed spots. It is most important that the steel surface of the pipe should be at least 3°C above the dew point before application of any protective coating.
When not in use, the primer should be stored in tightly sealed containers in a cool placeto avoid solvent losses by evaporation. The primer should never be placed near a naked flame. The drums should always be stored under a shed. The primer, beingin flammable, should be kept in a place where suitable fire extinguishers are available.There will be small loss in air content during pumping.
Quality Control is conducted very carefully in state-of-art STP laboratory by well qualified experienced engineers. Each batch of Jet Set Primer Type B is tested and certified. A quality certificate is provided with each delivery.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Use of solvent-proof gloves and rubber boots is recommended in the application area. Barrier cream should preferably be applied for skin protection before commencement of work. There should be adequate ventilation in areas of application. Jet Set Primer™ is an inflammable liquid, which forms a heavy flammable vapour. Store away from naked
flames, smoking areas and donot weld near it. In case of fire, extinguish with dry powder, foam, sand or earth. Use water spray to cool containers. In case of skin contact, wash with soap and water. Jet Set Primer™ is harmful by
inhalation and swallowing. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately. Eye protection (goggles) is recommended at all times. In case of accidental contact, wash eyes with water and seek medical help immediately.
Available in 20 litre and 200 litre steel drums. Special packs are available on request
