HIGH GLOSS EPOXY COAT is a two component, 100% solids, solvent
free epoxy coating. It is a high performance, tile-like coating used for
coating steel tanks, pipes, castings, drums, wood, concrete and other masonry
surfaces. High gloss epoxy coat is particularly suitable for application with
two component spray equipment. The coating is characterized by fast cure,
excellent adhesion, outstanding, chemical resistance and low temperature curing
(39F) HIGH GLOSS EPOXY COAT can also be applied by conventional brush or
High Gloss Epoxy-Coat is recommended
as a coating wherever chemical resistance is needed. It is specifically
designed for the protection of steel and concrete surfaces in continuous
immersion service and chemical environments.
Do not apply at temperatures
below 39 degrees F. Mix only at the amount that can be applied in 25 minutes.
For best results, do not thin. If necessary coating can be thinned with 5%
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 any 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.
Material is supplied in a pre-measured kit. Mix entire
contents of Part B container into the Part A container using a slow speed drill
or strong mixing stick. Be sure to scrape sides and bottom of can while mixing.
Mix ratio is 2.5 parts of Base (Part A) to 1 Part of reactor (Part B).
Airless Spray: Standard airless
spray equipment such as Graco President or Bulldog 30:1 pump ration. Inbound
air pressure 100 psi and minimum 2800 psi at spray gun. Fluid tip size .012 to
.015 inch, 2-6 mil coats are required if sprayed!! Second coat can be applied
as soon as the first coat is tack free or within 24 hours. If you wait longer
than 24 hours between coats, the surface should be lightly sanded before
coating!! Total dry film thickness: 10-15 mils.
Brush or Roller:
Material can be applied as thick as desired on horizontal surfaces since it is
a 100% solids epoxy system. No solvents will get trapped in. One coat should
give the desired thickness. If a second coat is desired, it can be applied as
soon as the surface is tack free or within 24 hours without
Important: Before filling tanks with chemicals or water, let
HIGH GLOSS EPOXY COAT cure for 7 days at 77 degrees F.
