Waterborne Epoxy Polyamide
General Description:

A high performance, two-package, chemically-cured waterborne gloss epoxy coating for use as a hard, durable high performance architectural coating (HIPAC). Features easy application, low VOC, high flash point, lower odor than solvent-based epoxies, and a hard, tough, stain-resistant finish. May be used in areas subject to continuous high moisture such as shower rooms.

Typical Uses:

Use on interior properly prepared poured concrete, concrete block, drywall, metal and wood. Ideal for hard usage areas of schools, hospitals, restaurants, public buildings and factories.

Special Qualifications:

Suitable for use on structural surfaces or surfaces where there is a possibility of incidental food contact in commercial food preparation establishments, food processing plants and federally inspected meat and poultry plants. USDA no longer requires or furnishes product certification letters.

Mixing: Slowly add Component B to Component A in a 1:1 ratio. Stir thoroughly and scrape sides of can to ensure thorough blending. Allow the mixed material to stand 45 minutes at temperatures below 70F (21C) before use. Above 70F (21C) allow 30 minutes induction time. Always restir before use. Mixed material is usable for six to eight hours; if it thickens, do not add thinner, but discard and mix fresh material. If initial thinning is necessary, use up to one-half pint water per gallon. Do not thin with solvents or solvent thinned coatings. Do not add flow-control materials.

Note: Surfaces coated with this product may become slippery when wet. For additional slip resistance in areas of pedestrian traffic, add one to two pounds of non-skid additive per 250 square feet. Fillers must dry overnight before coating.
Drywall - Prime with this product or waterborne primer.
Wood - Prime with this product reduced one-half pint per gallon with water or prime with waterborne primer.
Steel - Prime with waterborne epoxy primer.
Galvanized Metal and Aluminum - Prime with waterborne epoxy primer.

Warning: The Maximum aged recoat time of this product may be significantly shortened or lengthened by a variety of conditions, including, but not limited to humidity, surface temperature, and the use of additives or thinners. The use of accelerators or force curing may shorten the aged recoat of individual coatings. If the maximum aged recoat window is exceeded, please consult your Original Color Chips Specialist for appropriate recommendations to enhance adhesion. Failure to observe these precautions may result in intercoat delamination.

Limitations of Use: Not recommended for immersion Service. Exterior exposure will cause early dulling and loss of gloss, but does not affect protective properties. Epoxy coatings may yellow during application and cure if exposed to the combustion by-products of improperly vented fossil fuel burning heaters.

Spreading Rate: Apply at 235-320 sq. ft./gal. (6-8 m2/L) or 5.0-7.0 mils wet (2.0-3.0 mils dry) on smooth, sealed surfaces. Actual coverage may vary depending on substrate and application method. May be spray applied at 120-235 sq. ft./gal. (3-6 m2/L) or 7.0-11.0 mils wet (3.0-5.0 mils dry). For best hiding, tint primers toward finish coat color. Certain shades of yellow, All surfaces must be sound, dry, clean and free of oil, grease, dirt, mildew, form release agents, curing compounds, efflorescence, loose and flaking paint and other foreign substances.

New Surfaces: Concrete, Plaster and Masonry - Cure at least 30 days before painting. pH must be 10.0 or lower. Remove laitance and roughen unusually slick poured or precast concrete by acid etching or sandsweeping. Follow acid manufacturer's application and safety instructions. Rinse thoroughly with water and allow to dry. Remove loose aggregate. Prime with this product thinned 8:1 with water or prime with waterborne epoxy primer. Dry overnight to recoat. Fill concrete
