HIGH PERFORMANCE EPOXY COATING
Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy for Painting
Abrasion Resistant and Chemical Resistant
Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coating
is a two component solvent based epoxy
coating that exhibits excellent characteristics for abrasion resistance,
chemical resistance, and substrate penetration. This product is suitable as a
primer for high build coatings and urethane or as a stand alone coating.
Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coating is recommended priming or coating concrete, wood or steel. This
product can withstand exposure to many common solvents and chemicals.
Optional- Many products are suitable as topcoats over Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coating
including multiple coats of this product.
- Colors or gloss may be
affected by high humidity, low temperatures, chemical exposure, UV exposure or
lighting such as sodium vapor lights.
- Product is not UV color stable
- For best
results use a 3/8” nap roller
- Slab on grade requires moisture barrier
- Substrate temperature must be 5°F above dew point
- All new concrete must be
cured for at least 30 days
- Product color will vary from batch to batch
- Physical properties are typical and not specifications
- Light or bright colors
(white, safety yellow, etc.) may require multiple coats or a topcoat to achieve
a satisfactory hide, depending on the substrate.
MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Store Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coating in an area so as to bring the material to normal
room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60° and 90°F.
Surface preparation will vary according to the
type of complete system to be applied. For a one or two coat thin build system
(3-10 mils dry) we recommend either mechanical scarification or acid etching
until a suitable profile is achieved. For a complete system build higher than 10
mils dry, we recommend a fine brush blast (shot blast). All dirt, oil, dust,
foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond
to the substrate.
A test should be made to determine that the concrete is dry;
this can be done by placing a 4’ X 4’ plastic sheet on the substrate and taping
down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic
sheet, then the substrate is dry enough to start coating. The plastic sheet
testing is also a good method to determine if any hydrostatic pressure problems
exist that may later cause bond failure.
See Surface Preparation Procedures
for more information.
Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coating has a one
to one mix ratio by volume- merely mix equal volumes such as 1 gallon of part A
to 1 gallon of part B. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow
speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly
mixed and streak free. If temperatures are below 55°F, let the material induct
for ten minutes to help reduce the possibility of developing an epoxy blush.
The mixed Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coatingcan be applied by brush or roller.
Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and
curing process. When using product without a topcoat, it is best to use the same
batch of material for an entire job to prevent color or gloss differences.
RECOAT OR TOPCOATING
If you opt to recoat or topcoat Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coating, you must
first be sure that all of the solvents have evaporated from the coating during
the curing process. The information on the front side are reliable guidelines to
follow. However, it is best to test the coating before recoating or topcoating.
This can be done by pressing on the coating with your thumb to verify that no
fingerprint impression is left. If no impression is created, then the recoat or
topcoat can be started.
Always remember that colder temperatures will require
more cure time for Product #2001 Pigmented Polyamide Epoxy Coating before recoating or topcoating can commence.
Before recoating or topcoating, check the coating to insure no epoxy blushes
were developed (a whitish, greasy film or deglossing). If a blush is present, it
must be removed prior to topcoating or recoating. A standard type detergent
cleaner can be used to remove any blush.
Many epoxy overlays and coatings as
well as urethanes are compatible for use as a topcoat for this product as well
as multiple coats of this product.
Caution! Some cleaners may affect the color of the floor installed. Test each
cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects
are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.
Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and non-harsh
chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure).
It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on
actual complete system application, surface may be slippery, especially when wet
or contaminated; keep surface clean and dry.
