Devcon Wear Guard™ High Load



Devcon Wear Guard™ High Load

Alumina ceramic bead-filled epoxy system with outstanding abrasion resistance for severe service conditions with
particulate greater than 1/8"

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
Intended Use:

Repair scrubbers, ash handling systems, pipe elbows, screens, and chutes; recontour chippers, bins, hoppers, bunkers,
separators, diester tables; protect exhausters, chutes, launderers, housing fans, crushers, and breakers
  • Outstanding resistance to a wide range of chemicals
  • Services temperatures to 300°F
  • Non-sagging
Surface Preparation

  1. Thoroughly clean the surface with Devcon® Cleaner Blend 300 to remove all oil, grease and dirt.
  2. Grit blast surface area with 8-40 mesh grit, or grind with a coarse wheel or abrasive disc pad, to create increased surface area for better adhesion (Caution: An abrasive disc pad can only be used provided white metal is revealed). Desired profile is 3-5mil, including defined edges (do not "feather-edge” epoxy).Note: For metals exposed to sea water or other salt solution, grit-blast and high-pressure-water-blast the area, then leave
    overnight to allow any salts in the metal to “sweat” to the surface. Repeat blasting to “sweat out” all soluble salts. Perform
    chloride contamination test to determine soluble salt content (should be no more than 40ppm).
  3. Clean surface again with Devcon® Cleaner Blend 300 to remove all traces of oil, grease, dust or other foreign
    substances from the grit blasting.
  4. Repair surface as soon as possible to eliminate any changes or surface contaminants.WORKING CONDITIONS: Ideal application temperature is 55°F to 90°F. In cold working conditions, directly heat repair
    area to100-110°F prior to applying epoxy and maintain at this temperature during product cure to dry off any moisture,
    contamination or solvents, as well as to achieve maximum performance properties.


---- It is strongly recommended that full units be mixed, as ratios are pre-measured. ----

  1. Add hardener to resin.
  2. Mix thoroughly with screwdriver or similar tool (continuously scrape material away from sides and bottom of container)
    until a uniform, streak-free consistency is obtained.

INTERMEDIATE SIZES (1,2,3 lb. units): Place resin and hardener on a flat, disposable surface such as cardboard,
plywood or plastic sheet. Use a trowel or wide-blade tool to mix the material as in Step 2 above.
LARGE SIZES (25 lb., 30 lb., 50 lb. buckets): Use a T-shaped mixing paddle or a propeller-type Jiffy Mixer Model ES on
an electric drill. Thoroughly fold putty by vigorously moving paddle/propeller up and down until a homogenous mix of resin
and hardener is attained.

If grit blasting is not possible, and expandable metal cannot be used, apply Devcon Brushable Ceramic at 11-18 mils to prime the metal surface. Allow to cure for approximately 2 hours, or until a fingernail can almost depress the primed surface. Immediately apply Wear Guard™ High Load to the surface. DO NOT let the "prime coat" fully cure before applying Wear Guard™ High Load.
Spread mixed material on repair area at a minimum thickness of ¼”. Work firmly into substrate to ensure maximum
surface contact. Wear Guard™ High Load fully cures in 16 hours, at which time it can be machined, drilled, or painted.
    Place fiberglass sheet, expanded metal, or mechanical fasteners between repair area and Wear Guard™ High Load prior
    to application.
    Wear Guard™ High Load can be troweled up to 3/4” thick without sagging.
    Cure at room temperature for 2.5 hours, then heat cure for 4 hours @ 200°F.
    Applying epoxy at temperatures below 70°F lengthens functional cure and pot life times. Conversely, applying above 70°F
    shortens functional cure and pot life.

Store at room temperature, 70 °F.
