Devcon Wear Guard™ Fine Load



Devcon Wear Guard™ Fine Load

Ceramic bead filled epoxy system with
excellent abrasion resistance when
conveying fine particles.

They are also known as  :
Metal abrasion protection
Metal abrasion resistant coating
Metal abrasion resistant paint for metal
Abrasion resistant coating for steel
Wear resistance coating materials
  • Repairs to systems handling particles
    3mm and smaller
  • Extends equipment operating life
  • Prevents wear on metal surfaces that
    are exposed to abrasion and erosion
    such as chutes and launders
  • Non sag formulation
  • Protecting flanges and elbows
  • Lining bins and hoppers


A 5mm thick section of Wear Guard Fine Load will harden
at 25ºC in 2-3 hours. The material will be fully cured in 16
hours. The actual cure time of the product is determined by
the mass used and the temperature at the time of repair

Proper surface preparation is essential to a successful
application. The following procedures should be considered:
  • All surfaces must be dry, clean and rough.
  • If surface is oily or greasy use MEK, Acetone,
    IPA or similar to degrease the surface.
  • Remove all paint, rust and grime from the surface by
    abrasive blasting or other mechanical techniques.
  • Aluminium repairs: Oxidation of aluminium surfaces will
    reduce the adhesion of an epoxy to a surface.
    This film must be removed before repairing the surface,
    by mechanical means such as grit-blasting or chemical
  • Provide a “profile” on the metal surface by roughening
    the surface. This should be done ideally by grit blasting
    (8-40 mesh grit), or by grinding with a coarse wheel or
    abrasive disc pad. An abrasive disc may be used provided
    white metal is revealed. Do not ’feather edge’ epoxy
    materials. Epoxy material must be ’locked in’ by defined
    edges and a good 75-125 micron profile.
  • Metal that has been handling sea water or other salt
    solutions should be grit blasted and high pressure water
    blasted and left overnight to allow any salts in the metal to
    ’sweat’ to the surface. Repeat blasting may be required to
    ’sweat out’ all the soluble salts. A test for chloride
    contamination should be performed prior to any epoxy
    application. The maximum soluble salts left on the substrate
    should be no more than 40 p.p.m. (parts per million).
  • Chemical cleaning with MEK, Acetone, IPA or similar
    should follow all abrasive preparation. This will help to
    remove all traces of sandblasting, grit, oil, grease,
    dust or other foreign substances.
  • Under cold working conditions, heating the repair area to
    30ºC-40º C immediately before applying any of Devcon
    Epoxies is recommended. This procedure dries off any
    moisture, contamination or solvents and assists the epoxy
    in achieving maximum adhesion to the substrate.
  • Always try to make the repair as soon as possible after
    cleaning the substrate, to avoid oxidation or flash rusting.
    If this is not practical, a general application of FL-10
    Primer will keep metal surfaces from flash rusting.

For the Wear Guard Fine Load, add the hardener to the
resin then mix thoroughly using a suitable mixing paddle
or suitable size jiffy mixer. Mix in such a fashion that the
material is thoroughly dispersed from top to bottom of the
container until homogenous.

Spread the material over the prepared surface with a putty
knife or spatula pressing firmly into all cracks and voids to
ensure maximum surface contact and avoid trapping air.
A film of up to 20mm can be applied in one coat if required
even onto vertical surfaces without sagging. It is preferable,
where a thick layer is required, to first apply a 5~mm coat
and then a second coat just before the first is cured to get
the main build to the desired thickness.
Where high temperature duty is desired the following heat
cure regime should be followed; material should be cured at
room temperature for 2.5 hours followed by 4 hours at 90oC.

A shelf life of 3 years from date of manufacture can be
expected when stored at room temperature (22ºC) in their
original containers
