Stanrose® Epoxy MIO                                                                                               
Epoxy High Build Micaceous Iron Oxide Coating

Description :
Stanrose® Epoxy MIO is a two-component high build epoxy coating ideally suited for exterior application. It is highly tough and abrasion resistant and has increased weather resistance. Stanrose® Epoxy MIO is pigmented with micaceous iron oxide (MIO), a lamellar plate-like pigment that forms a thick lustrous layer after application. As the coating dries, the very thin platelet shaped pigment particles orient themselves parallel to the substrate to give an armoured effect to the film and also act as an impediment to the diffusion of oxygen and moisture through the film.

Features & Benefits :
Easy to apply and can be applied via airless spray, conventional spray, brush or roller.
Can be used as primer, intermediate cum finish coat.
Very high resistance to the permeability of water, moisture, oxygen and other atmospheric pollutants.
Has high resistance to abrasion and mechanical damage.
Has superior chemical and weather resistance.
It solves the problem of chalking as it is unattacked by UV-radiation because of the shielding action of the lamellar pigment particles.
Ideal for high humidity, moisture, marine atmospheres, heavy rains, high temperatures and damp conditions.
Excellent resistance to dilute acids, alkalis and certain solvents.
High solids and cost-effective.

Surface Preparation :

Steel - The surface should be blast cleaned to loose rust and scales, dirt, grease, oil, paint, wax, weak oxide films and other contaminants should be removed. Blast cleaning t is recommended where heavy corrosive conditions exist or coating is required to be immersed. That means a surface with a grey metallic colour, slightly roughened to form a suitable anchor pattern for coatings. This surface is free of all oil, grease, dirt, mill scale, rust, corrosion products, oxides, paint and other foreign matter. In absence of blast cleaning, prepare the metal surface by wire brushing, sanding, grinding, scrapping or chipping with hand or power tools. Remove all the contaminants. Apply one coat of Stanrose® EZP 500 Epoxy Zinc Phosphate Primer or Stanrose® EZC 500 Epoxy Zinc Chrome Primer. Then apply one or two coats Stanrose® Epoxy MIO. It can be overcoated with Stanrose® Epoxy Enamel, Stanrose® Enamel Polyurethane or Monocoat Enamel Polyurethane.

Galvanized Iron: Remove dirt, dust, oil, old paint etc. Degrease the surface with degreasing solvents like xylene or tri-chloroethylene. Apply one coat of Stanrose® Wash Primer for obtaining maximum adhesion. Apply one coat of Stanrose® 500 Epoxy Zinc Chrome Primer followed by one or two coats of Stanrose® Epoxy MIO.

Flammable. Keep away from heat and open flame. Maintain good ventilation and avoid breathing vapours.


Brushes and spray equipments should be cleaned with Stanrose® ETP Epoxy Thinner.

The contents should be stirred thoroughly prior to use.

After mixing Base and Hardener in recommended proportions, allow for 30 minutes induction period or sweat-in-time (maturing) before application.

When overcoating the weathered or aged Stanrose® Epoxy MIO, ensure that the coating is fully free from all contamination such as oil, dust, grease, stains etc.

This coating should always be thinned with Stanrose® ETP Epoxy Thinner. The use of alternative thinners can severely inhibit the curing mechanism of the coating.
