US Epoxy Coat - Clear

 
 

Description

US EPOXY COAT - CLEAR is a two component, 100% solids, solvent free epoxy coating. It is a high performance, tile-like coating used for sealing concrete and other masonry surfaces. U.S. Epoxy Coat is particularly suitable for application with two-component spray equipment. The coating is excellent for use on concrete block and similar surfaces.

Basic Use

U.S. Epoxy Coat is recommended as a coating for waterproofing and protecting floors against corrosion and deterioration caused by water, chemicals and heavy traffic.

Limitations

Do not apply at temperatures below 50 degrees F.
Mix only amount that can be applied in 30 minutes.

Surface Preparation

Prepare surface by method suitable for exposure and service. Always clean off any contamination between coats prior to applying subsequent topcoats.

Steel: All surface contamination, rust, mill scale, previous coatings, and all foreign matter must be removed by dry abrasive blasting to SA 2.5 (near white metal) and coated within 8 hours or before visible rusting occurs. Round off all rough welds and sharp edges and remove weld spatter.

Concrete: New concrete must age 28 days before coating. Form release agents, curing compounds, salts, and previous coatings must be removed and surface properly prepared by mechanical abrasion, abrasive blast or acid etching. Surface must then be swept, vacuumed or flushed to remove all spent abrasives, dust and all other foreign matter.

Mixing Instructions

1. Stir each component separately
2. Blend 2 parts of Base to 1 part of Reactor by Volume and mix using a strong mixing stick or slow speed drill equipped with a paint propeller

Application

Apply mixed material by brush, roller or squeegee. Apply second coat if needed after first coat has cured overnight. U.S. Epoxy Coat can be applied as thick as desired without affecting the cure. For a non-skid surface, sand can be broadcast on the first coat while still wet. Apply second coat if needed.
