How peel ply for epoxy works:
Peel ply for epoxy will lift itself off the deck or other substrate during the epoxy coating application, leaving only an epoxy coating behind. It works due to hydrostatic pressure formed by curing the resin-impregnated paper.
Peel ply for epoxy has a peel strength of 25 pounds per square meter. Therefore, it will safely support up to 500 pounds per square meter.
When we apply the epoxy onto the deck, the first layer of epoxy will be above the PeelCote paper. The PeelCote paper will pull itself off the deck or other substrate during drying and transfers itself onto the topmost layer of epoxy on the deck, where it forms a protective coating. It works due to hydrostatic pressure formed by curing the resin-impregnated paper.
We must use Peel ply for epoxies in combination with a thickened epoxy. One should not combine it with an unthickened (watery) epoxy. Being a relatively heavy material, PeelCote must achieve intimate contact with the deck or substrate before any significant amount of epoxy will transfer to it. Thickened epoxy is necessary to achieve this.
Using PeelCote should cover the entire surface area with less than 4oz/sq.yd of thickened epoxy. The 4oz/sq.yd of thickened epoxy will cover a surface area of 117 ft2 with a single coat at a thickness of 1 mil (25 microns). With two coats in an ideal application, the coverage would be 234 ft2 (38 sq.m).
The maximum recommended thickness for an interior coating is .5 mil (13 microns). One coat of an unthickened epoxy with PeelCote is equivalent to 2.2mil/sq.yd (51microns). One coat of thickened epoxy with PeelCote is equivalent to 3.1mil/sq.yd (77microns).

It is resistant to both red and gray salt, and it is resistant to the effects of aqueous and hydrocarbon-based surfactants used in sweeping street applications. NelcoTe PeelCote Epoxy Preimpregnated Peel Ply will adhere to concrete, masonry, and stucco surfaces exposed to harsh environments such as salt air and marine environments.
Wet and dry epoxy peel ply
Micro-bond prepolymer coated with resins to bond the substrates together during the adhesive application process in one step. They engineer the product carefully, considering what adhesives are available in a given market. As a result, the product works successfully with polyurethanes, polyesters and epoxies, and other types of adhesives.
We manufacture the Nelcoate peel ply (wet and dry) on state-of-the-art equipment. First, we start with a special lay-up. It has a special resistive foil laminated to the face fiber sheet, which prevents the adhesive from contacting the top surface of the finished panel, resulting in a clean finish. Then we cover this specially treated face sheet with a polyester release film released by heating to remove it after assembly. As a result, the Nelcoate peel ply laminate design provides excellent stability under normal handling conditions.
The product works in bonding wood and wood-based products like laminate floors. This, however, does not preclude the application of a Nelcoate peel ply to other materials, such as metals and plastics.
The face sheet on Nelcoate pre-impregnated peel ply is thin, allowing for multiple bonding applications. We enhance bonding efficiencies using an applied adhesive to the face sheet and a polyester release layer on top of it.
Rayming PCB & Assembly make all Bonding Solutions according to European Standard EN 744-1 for pre-impregnated adhesive laminates. This standard is equivalent to the standards in the United States, with specific requirements for the Preparation of Laminated Boards and Panels, including N/A pre-impregnated adhesive laminates.
Contamination in Peel Plies
The chemical composition of the face sheet, the adhesive, and the release layer is essential in determining how well a peel ply performs. The face sheet must be chemically stable for an extended time. An improperly selected face sheet will lead to contamination during substrate storage and assembly. In addition, we must select the adhesive and release layer appropriately not to contaminate the uncured adhesive on the side sheets.
We can create contamination using several different sources and entails many problems, including adhesion failure and loss of strength. Therefore, the ability, or lack thereof, to eliminate contamination will significantly impact productivity and profits in any production process.
There are two fundamental types of contamination:
The “bonding” contamination is caused by storing the laminate face sheet, adhesives, and substrates in the same environment for an extended time. This can be detrimental to all processes, but we can mitigate proper storage conditions for all components. The contaminants do not originate from any material intrinsically. Instead, the chemical nature makes it a contaminant. The contaminants can be either of nature, such as increasing the peel strength, or nature, resulting in a loss of strength.
Examples of contamination sources:
We obtain the face sheet of the laminate by laminating together two surfaces that we need to bond later. In many cases, the face sheet is also helpful storage media for the adhesive and substrate. Therefore, we must select the face sheet to resist contamination by the materials stored in it. This may include water, solvents, oils and fats from fingers, etc. We should verify this requirement for each new application since contaminants vary from one industry to another.
Epoxy prep will be an essential part of coating success on a boat. Epoxy prep will allow the epoxy to join the boat’s surface. It would not be possible if we did not prep it with peel-ply. If you don’t do epoxy prep, you will have a much harder job separating epoxy from the boat’s surface if any goes through the pore system. It will also mean when lifting paint or gel coat. It will take more time and effort
The correct epoxy for the application is essential. Epoxies generally contain three parts. Two of them are resins, a hardener, and an activator. The problem with the resin is that it can be quite harsh on wood. The most used resins are epoxy phenolic and epoxy amine hardeners.
