OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT BASIC PRODUCT

BASIC PRODUCT DATA & GENERAL PRODUCT OVERVIEW

GENERAL OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink is an two component one hundred percent (100%) coating designed for decorative, thin film applications. The product is for vision and non-vision areas, insulated glass units and lamination. The product is totally lead free, non-toxic, there are no heavy metals and is environmentally safe. After application to the glass the applied coating cures to a tack-free elastomeric film which has excellent adhesion and weatherability ratings. NOTE: We feel that it is important to review, periodically, technical and application techniques for your continued success with OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. APPLICATION OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink is intended to be applied to glass that has been tempered or heat strengthened thus eliminating potential loss of material in the tempering process. Since OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink is applied after all fabrication it can be used on high performance glass and can be applied to annealed glass. COMPATIBILITY Certain products such as; neoprene, some sealants and insulating materials may contain certain chemicals which react adversely when placed next to or on cured the OPACI-COAT500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. All products so used should be tested and approved by ICD for compatibility prior to intended use. ICD has previously approved certain products such as Dow Corning 795 and 995. ICD performs compatibility tests on many sealants and adhesives, as a service to architects and AFF's. Each individual material is applied, cured and tested with ICD products. For example, ICD approves of Dow Corning 795 and we also approve Dow Corning 1199 for use with ICD silicones. These products are tested individually and not in conjunction with multiple sealants. It is important to consult each sealant manufacturer for compatibility information between sealants and other materials. Please allow thirty (30) days from start of compatibility test. For information regarding these and other compatible products, contact ICD.

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT COLOR COLORS AVAILABLE All standard architectural colors and primary colors are available. For custom color matching virtually any color can be achieved. ORDERING ­ SAMPLES - COLOR MATCHING ORDERING Order adequate amounts so that batches will not be mixed on the same project; especially, custom colors. In the event that you do run out of material, please inform ICD upon ordering of new material. This ensures that your new order will be within an acceptable tolerance to the original order. COLOR MATCHING For proper matching of colors the larger the sample of the color to be matched the better the match will be by ICD. ICD must receive several samples of the glass on which the OPACICOAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink will be used, or very exact specification of the glass that is going to be used. As well, any standard paint fandeck may be used and that specific number conveyed to ICD for exact matching. SAMPLES ICD will provide 100 mm x 200 mm (4" x 8") color matched samples for customer approval free of charge. Telephone ICD for information on larger or additional sample requirements. BATCH VARIATIONS ICD maintains rigid color matching specifications with OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. In any color matching program there is the possibility of slight batch to batch variations in color. ICD recommends utilizing the same color batch on one project or notify ICD of the reorder of a specific batch for the same project. GLASS COLOR VARIATIONS BETWEEN FLOAT GLASS MANUFACTURERS Glass color variations from different float glass producers are common. This variation of color is related to the different raw materials utilized in the manufacture of glass. The variations of color, specifically the greenish tint in clear float, can cause color differences. Variations in tinted float glass can cause significant color and shading differences. NEVER inter-mix glass types, colors, manufacturers on the same job.

FABRICATION

GENERAL HANDLING & STORAGE, PREPARATION, APPLICATION, EQUIPMENT, SHIPPING & HANDLING

GENERAL HANDLING HANDLING CAUTION The uncured, liquid OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink can cause eye irritation. Skin and eye contact should be avoided. In case of eye contact, flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes and obtain medical attention. For skin contact, flush affected areas with water as soon as practical. SHELF LIFE ­ UNOPENED CONTAINERS The shelf life of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink, that has not been catalyzed, is six (6) months from date of shipment. Any product older than this should not be used. Storage temperature must be <70°F/21°C; 50% relative humidity. Contact ICD for special storage conditions. STORAGE OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT INK 100% silicone. Storage temperature must be between 32°F ­ 72°F (0°C ­ 22°C). Higher temperatures may be detrimental to product stability. Excess heat may excel chemical reactions. PREPARATION AND APPLICATION BLENDING

Some layer separation may occur in the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink if stored for a period of time after shipping from ICD. Separation is not detrimental to the product, however, reblending is required. Prior to using OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink, it must be gently agitated and sufficiently blended. Blending and mixing seems to be a simple procedure, however, it is sometimes overlooked because of the difficulty in actually viewing the mix. The catalyst must be sufficiently blended at time of use.

53.5D OC500 DECORATIVE Screen Print Handling Guide Page - 15

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink must be blended before each use. RECOMMENDED MIXING EQUIPMENT:

20 Liter Mixer 750 OC500

1-4 Liter Mixer 751 OC500

Lab Mixer 752 OC500

Air Mixer 753 OC500

A dispersing or mixing blade must be used with a spinning motion for the best dispersion. A mixing stick will not accomplish a fine dispersion. Poor mixing of the material can result in color variances that may lead to poor adhesion and cross-linking. Blending should be done so as not to introduce air. Never dilute OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink with water or any other liquid. POT LIFE

Moderately blow dry nitrogen gas for 10-15 seconds on top of the catalyst solution after each use for longer shelf-life.

AERATION

Aeration of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink can occur with excessive agitation at or near the surface of a container. A moderate spinning dispersing blade near the bottom of the liquid in the container (1 inch above the bottom of the pail) produces the best results with the least likelihood of introducing air. Excessive air entrapment may be removed by long term slow agitation. Depending on the amount of air entrapped, mixing may exceed one (1) hour.

OCCASIONAL SURFACE AIR BUBBLES

Occasional surface air bubbles from the screen will occur. Air movement across the coating surface will remove the surface air bubbles.

GLASS PREPARATION

Surface preparation is required for successful use of. A good grade of detergent must be used so that proper adhesion will be assured. All foreign contamination must be removed from the surface before application of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. Not doing so can lead to failure of adhesion.

Refer to "Recommended Techniques for Washing Glass" brochure

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT WASHING (GENERAL) Many articles have been written about proper glass cleaning procedures and methods by the major glass manufacturers. Please, however, see and follow exactly PPG Industries "Recommended Techniques for Washing Glass". OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink, as well as other opacifiers and sealants require peak quality control, with reference to surface cleanliness, to perform at their maximum capabilities. AUTOMATIC WASHING Mechanical glass washers are the best known productive means for washing glass and should always be used where any quantity of glass is being cleaned. Glass washers require the proper amount and kind of detergents, appropriate rinse water and temperatures to ensure glass cleanliness. In some cases the normal water supply must be examined for proper purification. Water rinse temperatures and proper maintenance of the glass washing equipment must be followed as recommended. The glass MUST be dry prior to application of the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. MANUAL WASHING Hand washing should NEVER be used. Foreign contamination can affect adhesion. Special Note on Washing In order to meet the requirements of being an AFF, an inline horizontal mechanical washer must be located just ahead of and/or in close proximity to the coating operation and used at all times just prior to the application of the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. Always, inspect glass just prior to the application of the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. Store and protect from airborne debris. Re-wash as required. SPECIAL NOTE ON WASHING In order to meet the requirements of being an AFF, an inline horizontal mechanical washer must be located just ahead of and/or in close proximity to the coating operation and used at all times just prior to the application of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink.

Immediately after screen application, some air bubbles may be present. If this occurs, apply a low volume air across surface for 2-3 seconds. This will eliminate surface air bubbles. The earlier in the process, the better. Bubbles cannot be removed after cure. ADHESION TESTING It is highly advisable, and mandatory on all jobs over 500 square feet, to perform a peel adhesion test and enter the results in the job log. Several samples should be run alongside the job using the same glass, cleaning techniques, etc., as the actual lites and then after drying a careful test done. This test will highlight any quality deficiencies. Refer to ICD cure testing. INSULATION APPLICATION DO NOT glue insulation directly to the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. See Insulated Spandrel detail for proper shop application recommendations. Insert # 88. INSULATED GLASS (IG) UNITS Edge deletion is required. FABRICATION EQUIPMENT · · · · WET FILM THICKNESS; Coating thickness should be held to a wet thickness of one (1) mil (.0254 mm)(25.4 µ). Less thickness affects the product's durability.

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT DOW CORNING® 1199 CLEAR SILICONE FOR WALL CLADDING BELOW 72" ICD has evaluated Dow Corning® 1199 clear silicone. We find the silicone to be compatible with and adheres well to the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. This material is approved for wall cladding applications below 72" (28.34cm) in height. All other instructions remain the same.

70-8 Tech Bull; Dow Corning 1199 Silicone for Wall Cladding: August 2, 2006; Rev. Date: April 30, 1997.

VACUUM LIFTING CUPS ICD continuously test products that might come in contact with or be installed in close proximity to the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. DO NOT USE VACUUM LIFTING CUPS ON COATING! The use of vacuum lifting cups in direct contact with OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT INK can cause staining in the silicone coating. This is due to the rubber used in the cups. The staining is especially obvious in the mid to light range of colors.

70-9 Tech Bull; Vacuum Lifting Cups; 8/99; Rev Date: August 30, 1999.

PROPER CURE OF SILICONE ICD performs compatibility tests on many sealants and adhesives, as a service to architects and AFF's. Each individual material is applied, cured and tested with ICD products. For example, we approve of Dow Corning 795 and we also approve Dow Corning 1199 for use with ICD silicones. These products are tested individually and not in conjunction with multiple sealants. The resulting test combinations would be endless. It is then important to consult each sealant manufacturer for compatibility information between sealants and other materials. If one sealant is used to attach wall cladding in the recommended ICD methods, some time should pass for cure of the attaching sealant prior to the addition of a perimeter sealant. Not all silicones, spandrels or sealants, have the same chemistry. There are instances where using two incompatible silicones will result in a reaction that can harm the spandrel silicone and or the sealants. Above all, consult each material manufacturer prior to starting any job. It is important for installation contractors to consult with adhesive/sealant suppliers for proper use.

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT JOBSITE PROTECTION OF COATED GLASS Once architectural glass products have arrived on the job site, proper storage methods can help to insure protection from damage caused by prolonged exposure to moisture, construction site dust and debris, caustic chemicals, and exposure to other construction chemicals and activities. Improper storage and handling can lead to damage of any architectural glass product including spandrel glass products. As well, failure to follow these instructions may void an ICD AFF Warranty on the project. New Release: The Glass Association of North America (GANA) recently issued a Glass Information Bulletin (TD-03-1003), of which is attached to this Technical Bulletin. "GANA TD-03-1003: Construction Site Protection of Architectural Glass; Steps must be taken to Avoid Permanent Damage to Glass." ICD's Handling Guide refers to proper fabrication, shipping and handling, as well as proper installation procedures. The handling guide is a part of all start-up and certification training required and provided by ICD. Please consult ICD for specific job site storage recommendations specific to OPACICOAT500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink coated glass. Remedy: Open Storage: Over wrap with water-proof material. Cased Goods: Line case with APPROVED barrier material.

WET MIL THICKNESS & IMPORTANCE OF BACK LIGHTING Lack of color uniformity may occur as stated in the "Special Application Precautions" section of our Handling Guide. These features can be seen as; pinholes, blotches, or light/dark areas. All of which can lead to a lack of consistent color. One of the biggest reasons for inconsistent color uniformity is a lack of adequate thickness at the time of application. This will be most important when working with lighter or pastel colors.

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT IMPORTANCE OF PROPER GLASS WASHING Many articles have been written about proper glass cleaning procedures and methods by the major glass manufacturers. ICD recommends and endorses the following of PPG Industries method; "PPG Industries Recommended Techniques for Washing Glass". This method must be followed per the Approved Factory Fabricator Program (AFF). In-line horizontal or vertical mechanical glass washer installed ahead of or in proximity of the coating line is a requirement of the AFF Program. Surface preparation is required for successful use of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink. A good grade of detergent must be used. All foreign contamination must be removed from the glass surface. Always inspect glass just prior to the application of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink and protect from airborne dirt and debris, re-wash as needed. Water temperatures should range from 100° F to 140°F to ensure solubility of detergents. Hand washing is not an approved method under the AFF Program. Once clean handle glass with care, even skin oils can lead to a lack of coating adhesion. Wear clean cotton gloves.

EDGE DELETION TAPE INFORMATION This document is in regards to the use of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink in insulated glass applications. OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink may be used on #2 and #3 surfaces of insulated glass (IG) units. Silicone is porous, so to ensure quality, edge deletion is required and proper edge deletion tape must be used during the fabrication of OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink in this application. Edge deletion tape must be heat resistant to withstand oven cure temperatures. Depending upon edge seal width requirements, a variety of widths are available. Please contact ICD for tape recommendations and ordering. TAPE APPLICATION: Just prior to the application of the OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE Screen Print Ink, carefully apply edge deletion tape, by hand, to a clean and dry glass surface. Apply slight pressure to tape to ensure continuous attachment. Failure to do so may cause bleed through at the tape edge. Remove tape immediately after exiting the oven. This will ensure a clean, straight edge at the unit edge seal / coating interface.

Performance requirements call for glass to be coated and insulating in order to be more energy efficient; and often heat-treated and laminated to provide greater strength, safety, and security. As a result of increased performance capabilities, more glass is being used in both residential and commercial construction. The higher valued products have increased the importance of proper site storage, handling, installation and protection throughout the construction process. During glass manufacturing, fabrication and installation, products are carefully handled to prevent surface and edge damage. Materials are packaged to provide protection during shipment and delivery. Once finished materials are placed on a construction site, they become exposed to a variety of conditions and influences that can adversely affect product aesthetics and functionality. Irreparable glass damage can occur from improper storage and handling, exposure to chemicals and leaching agents, prolonged exposure to moisture, mechanical attack and breakage, damage related to adjacent construction activities and improper cleaning methods. Site Delivery and Storage Windows, doors and skylights for residential construction typically arrive on construction sites preglazed, while commercial construction applications often require that individual lites of glass be delivered to the site and glazed at a later date. In both types of construction, it is vital that materials be properly stored. The complex nature of construction projects and site management require well-planned and executed material delivery and storage. The following is a list of recommended practices for site delivery and storage of fenestration materials: - Glass and glazing system suppliers should be consulted for specific recommendations on the site storage, handling, installation, and protection of their materials before any work is started. - To the extent practical, glass deliveries should be coordinated to minimize on-site storage durations.

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT TD 03-1003 2 - Subcontractors should work with the general contractor or builder to select on-site under roof storage locations that avoid direct rain and water runoff; work areas of other trades; areas of high traffic; and to minimize material movement and handling. - Individual cases of glass and preglazed materials should be secured, blocked, and braced to prevent falls. - Blocks or supports should ensure that the bottom edge of materials will be kept well above potential puddles of rainwater. - Provide secure, temporary covering that prevents direct water flow but ensures ventilation and combats condensation buildup on the glass. - Clearly mark protected areas of glass cases and preglazed materials using colored ribbons or tape. - Ensure that stored materials are not subjected to corrosive agents, such as concrete and masonry runoff. - Ensure that stored materials are not exposed to activities of other trades such as welding, painting, insulating, and fireproofing. - Establish a program for daily inspection of stored glass and glazing systems to monitor conditions and ensure prompt corrective action when needed. Trade Awareness As fenestration materials are delivered to a residential or commercial construction site, it is recommended that all construction trades be made aware of the potential for permanent damage and their level of responsibility in the event materials are subjected to harmful conditions. Site supervision must ensure that, in the event of damage, prompt attention is called to the conditions and a trained professional properly cleans the fenestration materials. Site Handling and Installation Trade professionals should execute site material handling and installation of fenestration materials. Residential and light commercial windows, doors, and skylights should be installed in accordance with ASTM International document E 2112 ­ Standard Practice for Installation of Exterior Windows, Doors and Skylights. Glass for commercial glazing applications should be handled and installed in accordance with guidelines set forth in the Glass Association of North America (GANA) Glazing Manual. TD 03-1003 3

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT Post Installation Inspection and Protection After installation, special attention should be given to construction activities in order to prevent exposure of glass in windows, doors and skylights to welding, paint, plaster, sealants, fireproofing, and alkali and chemical attack. The subcontractor and general contractor or builder should inspect and document the condition of the glazed materials on a daily basis. At this stage of construction, the general contractor or builder is encouraged to remind other construction trades of the potential for damage to the glazed materials and to implement systems for protection. The following is a list of common conditions and causes that damage glass after installation: Condition: Wet glass ­ resulting in permanent surface corrosion/staining Cause: Outside, uncovered or extended storage; inadequate ventilation; improper glass separation Condition: Glass surface or edge damage Cause: Inadequate on-site protection; storage locations; exposure to other trades Condition: Chemical attack and surface corrosion Cause: Overspray and runoff of chemicals from sealing/cleaning of concrete, masonry, roofing, etc; inadequate protection and/or poor storage location Condition: Weld-splatter surface damage and reduction in strength Cause: Location of glass near welding; inadequate protection of stored or installed glass Condition: Surface corrosion and stain from concrete and masonry runoff Cause: Poor storage and/or protection of uninstalled glass; absence of prompt, interim cleaning of installed glass during construction Construction Clean-Up If glass is exposed to harmful materials or conditions during construction, the general contractor or builder and all trades should be immediately advised of the potential damage. The glazing contractor and glass fabricator/supplier should be consulted for damage assessment and corrective actions. TD 03-1003 4 Deep surface scratches, contact by hot weld-splatter and edge damage threaten the structural integrity of glass and may require glass replacement. Surface contact with harmful materials will require prompt cleaning by a trained professional window cleaner. Glass should be cleaned in strict accordance with the Glass Informational Bulletin - Proper

OPACI-COAT-500® DECORATIVE SCREEN PRINT Procedures for Cleaning Architectural Glass Products. General contractors, builders, owners, and window cleaners should also consult the Glass Informational Bulletin ­ HeatTreated Glass Surfaces are Different for additional considerations when cleaning heatstrengthened and tempered glass products. Both documents are published by the Glass Association of North America and are available for free download from the GANA website: www.glasswebsite.com or by contacting the association headquarters at (785)-271-0208. If harmful exposure results in conditions that cannot be cleaned using the industry guidelines, the glass fabricator/supplier should be consulted for recommendations on more aggressive glass polishing and chemical cleaning procedures. The use of a more aggressive procedure may itself damage the glass. Careful thought and discussion must precede the use of aggressive cleaning procedures. The general contractor or builder may need to schedule regular cleaning during the construction process. Extended construction schedules and site conditions often result in dirt and debris build-up. Professional cleaning at the initial signs of build-up can decrease the potential for glass damage. Long-Term Building Maintenance & Performance Following the completion of the construction project and throughout the life of the building, windows, doors, and skylights should be properly cleaned. Building facades may be exposed to sealant rundown, pollutants, dirt and debris, which can attack and damage glass surfaces over time. Building maintenance schedules should include frequent cleaning to ensure long-term glass aesthetics and performance. Building owners should ensure that individuals cleaning fenestration materials are well aware of the products in the building and are knowledgeable of cleaning procedures and practices recommended by the manufacturer and the glass industry. Proper protection of glass in windows, doors, and skylights throughout the construction process and the life of a building is essential. Planning and execution of the practices offered in this bulletin will enable the glass to meet the aesthetic and performance expectations, and the needs of the building occupants. This bulletin was developed by the GANA Tempering Division - Construction Subcommittee and approved by the Tempering; Division - Standards & Engineering Committee and GANA Board of Directors. This is the original version of the document as approved and published in October 2003.
