Guardian Splash-zone 60GW
Prepare substrate to Class St2 (ISO 8501-1:2007). Substrate must be cleaned. Remove all loose material including rust, scale, coatings, etc.
PRIME (Primer MP)
Apply GUARDIAN Splash-Zone Primer MP by gloved hand to evenly coat the substrate above and below water. Ensure surface imperfections are filled. Anticipate a spread rate of 1 to 2m2/kg.
CONTOUR (Mastic MM)
Fill all voids and contour or profile any angular changes with the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone Mastic MM. The profile should be such that the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone Tape MT may be applied without bridging and / or likelihood for the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone Tape MT to be damaged while in service by any angular projection.
INNER WRAP (Tape MT)
Spirally apply GUARDIAN Splash-Zone Tape MT onto the primed substrate, incorporating a minimum 50% overlap resulting in a coating of two layers in a single wrapping motion. GUARDIAN Splash-Zone Tape MT should be applied under firm tension to minimize wrinkling and smooth wrapping with a gloved hand throughout the wrapping process to squeeze out any trapped air or water. All tape overlaps should be pressed firmly to progressively seal the exposed edge of applied tape. With each new roll, overlap adjoining tape rolls by a 100mm minimum.
OUTER TAPE (60GW Tape)
Remove from sealed pouch and spirally apply GUARDIAN Splash- Zone 60GW Tape onto the coated piled incorporating a minimum 50% overlap resulting in a coating of two layers in a single wrapping motion. GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW Tape should be applied under firm tension to minimize wrinkling. Overlap adjoining tape rolls by a 100mm minimum.
For a better finish, spirally apply cling wrap onto the coated pile, under tension and then perforate cling wrap with wire brush or spiked roller to allow excess urethane epoxy to escape. Remove cling wrap when cured.
GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW Tape is a key component of the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW System.
GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW Tape is a Polyurethane Epoxy Resin embedded synthetic cloth ready for immediate application above and below water.
GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW Tape is highly conforming to the substrate, providing a high level of mechanical protection to the pile.
GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW Tape exhibits excellent flexibility in application, permitting the installer to achieve a tight fitting, self-sealing sheath.

The GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW System protects Piles against Corrosion (Steel, Concrete), and Worm Infestation (Timber), in sheltered or non-exposed water situations (for example, Harbour, Bay or similar).
Providing 20+ Years of Protection Performance, the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW System possesses true surface tolerance, with the ability to be applied above and below water. Coupled with its highly conforming properties, the mechanical protection properties of the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW System makes it an ideal choice in sheltered conditions.
Performance Driven: Providing 20+ years of protection in sheltered conditions, the combination of Petrolatum Materials with generically, 85+ years in proven performance in asset protection (longevity and effectiveness), coupled with the mechanical protection of the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW System Outer Tape, protects the pile from unforgiving atmospheric, chemical and biological factors.
Surface Tolerance: The system has been developed to be surface tolerant requiring a “St2” surface preparation in accordance with ISO8501-2007.
Conformability: Being highly conforming, the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW System coating integrity is maintained across varying profiles.
Severe Corrosive Environments: the GUARDIAN Splash-Zone 60GW System is unaffected by water, acids and salts.
Curing: cures in minutes.
VOC Content: 0%
