ProTXcoat 102CF

Ceramic Fluid

Two Component Ceramic Reinforced Repair Fluid

102CF is a high performance fluid grade engineering resurfacing compound designed for use in fluid flow environments..

102CF is formulated on a complex range of epoxy resins combined with a polyamine curing system reinforced with hardened ceramic fillers to enhance abrasion resistance, corrosion and chemical resistance of the whole system.

102CF can be applied to any damaged component in one easy application and is ideal for rebuilding pump bodies, impellers, propellers, guide vanes, valves, tube sheets, water boxes, rudders, heat exchangers etc.

Before proceeding, please read the following information carefully to ensure that the correct application procedure is fully understood.


Heavy contamination due to oil or grease must first be removed using MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone)

Surfaces should then be abrasive blast cleaned to a minimum Sa21⁄2 – Sa3 BS7079 Part A1 : 1989 or equivalent with a blast profile of 75 – 125 microns corresponding to ‘Rough’ in ISO 8503/1. All loose abrasive dust and debris must be blown clear or vacuum cleaned away.

Equipment that has been salt impregnated due to service conditions should first be wet blasted then dry abrasive blasted and checked for presence of salts, this process should be repeated until the salts are removed.

Alternatively, surfaces should be warmed with a blow torch or similar to bring salts up to the surface. The surface should once again be blast cleaned. This procedure must be repeated until no further sweating of impregnated salt is evident.

102CF is a two component solvent free material comprising base and activator components which must be mixed together prior to use.

Mix the entire contents of the base and activator containers.

Alternatively measure three volumes of base component and one volume of activator into a clean container. The two components should be thoroughly mixed until completely streak free. The mixed material should be used within 25 minutes of mixing at 20°C (68°F). This time will be reduced at higher temperatures and extended at lower temperatures.

The mixed material should be used within 25 minutes of mixing at 20°C (68°F). This time will be reduced at higher temperatures and extended at lower temperatures.

Application should not be carried out at temperatures below 5°C nor when relative humidity exceeds 85% or when the surface to be coated is less than 3°C above the dew point.

The mixed material should be applied to the prepared area using a clean brush or squeegee, application should be carried out as soon as possible after surface preparation is complete and certainly the same day, otherwise flash blasting will be necessary before application.

Where necessary Reinforcement Tape should be stippled into the mixed product and further material applied over the tape. For large areas the tape should be overlapped.

In areas where a second layer of 102CF is required, this application must be carried out within the initial set time for the first layer, otherwise the surface must be lightly abraded or flash blasted.

Theoretical Coverage Rate:

  • 1.76 m2 / kilo at 250 microns dft (19 ft2 per kilo at 10 mils)


  • 440 cc (27 cu ins) per kilo
