Nycote 88

Apply Nycote® 88 to substrates that need protection from corrosion, electrical conduction and friction. It comes in an easy-to-use two-part component. Combining the two components results in a three-hour window before the formula begins to set.

Our products are easily applied by painting, spraying or dipping areas that need protection from aircraft fuels, oil, lubricants, phosphate ester hydraulic fluids, salt spray and water. Nycote® 88 also provides excellent high impact, abrasion resistance, flexibility and toughness at temperatures of -70°F to +300°F (-57°C to +149°C). NSN: 8010-01-530-5341

Nycote 88 Application

  • Carefully clean surfaces of oils, grease and dust. Nycote® Thinner I followed by Nyclean™ is recommended
  • Add accelerator to base container (premeasured ratio of resin to accelerator is 16 to one)
  • Close tightly and shake well for two minutes
  • Let stand for 10 minutes before use
  • Apply Nycote® resin by brush, dip, fill and drain, or spraying techniques
  • When spraying we recommend using Nycote® Thinner Type II at a 25% to 50% volume ratio in order to reduce cobwebbing. Use low air pressure 10-20 p.s.i.

Cure Timetable

Allow one to two hours air dry to become tack free. In dry air allow 72 hours at room temperature for full cure or:

Heat 12 hours @ 120°F (49°C)
Heat eight hours @ 150°F (66°C)
Heat four hours @ 180°F (82°C)
Heat two hours @ 220°F (105°C)
Cure film temperature range is -70°F to +300°F (-57°C to 149°C)

Storage Temperature Requirements

Store at 70°F (21°C). Keep away from fire or flame.

Note: Ideal storage temperature is 70°F (21°C); acceptable storage range is between 65°F to 80°F (18.3°C to 26.7°C). Storing below 65°F (18.3°C) may cause cloudiness or gel; heat at 180°F (82°C) for two hours. This should restore the product to its normal liquid condition. If possible, re-verify viscosity with Zahn #2 cup (21-27 seconds).

Nycote® 88 has a 12 month shelf life provided that the accelerator is not added to base product. Once the accelerator has been added, the formula has a three-hour application window before hardening process begins.
