Inorganic Hybrid Water-Based Epoxy
An advanced generation, water-based epoxy coating that is low odor, low VOC, and specially formulated with corrosion-inhibitive properties for the long-term protection of steel substrates. Excellent when used as a primer or intermediate coat within a high-performance coating system. Offers excellent adhesion to metal substrates and provides exceptional corrosion protection up to 400°F (204°C). Formula protected under U.S. patent.
Series 1224 was tested in accordance with, and passed, the California Dept. of Public Health (CDPH) Standard Method v1.2 and meets the requirements of LEED v4.1 Low-Emitting Materials, Collaborative for High Performance Schools-Paints & Coatings, Living Building Challenge Materials Petal 10, and WELL Building Standard v2 X06 VOC Restrictions.
Series 1224 at 4.0 - 6.0 mils meets AISC requirements of Class A surface with a mean slip coefficient no less than 0.30 and a tension creep not in excess of 0.015 inches (0.38 mm).
This product is part of a coating system tested in accordance with ISO 12944-6 (2018). Contact your Tnemec representative for coating system test results.View more product details

† The following minimum recoat times apply when topcoating with Series 297, 1080 or 1081: 95°F (35°C) 12 hours, 75°F (24°C) and 55°F (13°C) 24 hours, 45°F (7°C) 4 days, 35°F (2°C) 7 days. Curing time varies with surface temperature, air movement, humidity and film thickness. Substrates containing integral water repellants can prolong cure times.
Series 30, 66, 72, 73, 113, 114, 115, 156, 157, 158, 161, 180, 181, 270, 273, 280, 281, 287, 290, 291, 297, 740, 750, 971, 1026, 1028, 1029, 1070, 1070V, 1071, 1071V, 1072, 1072V, 1074, 1074U, 1075, 1075U, 1077, 1078, 1080, 1081, 1094, 1095, 1096. Note: When topcoating with Series 740 or 750 over 1224, a 90 day maximum recoat time applies. An extended cure time is needed when topcoating with Series 297, 1080 or 1081. Reference additional recoat times listed below the cure table. Note: More than one finish coat may be required to achieve uniform and desired gloss level.
