Silver Bullet AM-316 is a semi-gloss, stainless metallic finish that contains a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent that makes the surface of the coating effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria as well as mold, mildew, and algae. Silver Bullet AM uses our new technology water-based epoxy resins for maximum durability in demanding applications. Silver Bullet AM-316 is for interior applications only. VOC compliant.
Silver Bullet AM® is available in Clear, Black, and White
Required Curing Agent: 16-CURE; mixing ratio (2) parts “A” + (1) part “B” by volume
Recommended Primers: Usually used over a stainless steel middle-coat. Steel Plus Epoxy Primer or Prime Solution 5250 Red/5253 Gray
Surface Preparation Silver Bullet AM Stainless Steel Antimicrobial Coating:
Required on all metal or old coatings: Remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with BC-4000 cleaner or other suitable cleaners. Thoroughly cured old coatings or new smooth metal may require scuff sanding for maximum adhesion.
Moderate Exposure: Abrasive blast the surface to SSPC-SP-6 commercial blast before priming.
Severe Exposure: Abrasive blast the surface to SSPC-SP-10 near white blast before priming.
How to Apply Stainless Steel Antimicrobial Epoxy Paints:
Apply only when air and surface temperatures are between 50oF and 100oF and surface temperature is at least 5oF above the dew point.
Thinning AM 316 Coating:
Using Roller or a Brush: Use as mixed. Dilute with water as needed.
Using an Air Atomized Sprayer: Dilute up to 5-10% with water if needed.
Using an Airless Sprayer: Normally, no dilution needed.
Steel Plus CE Clean Up: Use soap and water
Recommended Equipment to Use when Applying Stainless Steel Antimicrobial Epoxy:
Filter: Use 50 mesh stainless steel screen or nylon bag when needed
Brush: Use a quality synthetic bristle brush
Roller: Use quality roller cover
