Semi Gloss Durable Coating Epoxy 325
A tenacious yet durable cyclo-aliphatic epoxy primer designed to repel chemicals and resist abrasions. Available clear or colored. Use as a primer with the Urethane 645 topcoat.
Supplied as a two-component kit and easily applied with a nap roller or brush, the 325 can be used on a variety of horizontal concrete applications. Recommended for areas with high risks of exposure to chemical spills, fuel, heavy equipment and extreme temperatures such as auto repair shops, garages and warehouse floors. For interior use only, grinding or etching of the surface is recommended prior to application.
Best used as a primer with the Urethane 645 topcoat. This product leaves a semi-gloss that will not fade or delaminate and regular maintenance can keep concrete looking good for years to come. Available in two variations of clear or in 12 standard colors. Paint chips or metallic powders can be used to create durable yet decorative finishes.
This product comes pre-packaged by weight. Kits should be mixed in their entirety. Epoxy 325 A and Epoxy 325 B should be thoroughly mixed before combining. Scrape the bottom and sides of each container. Epoxy 325 A and Epoxy 325 B can then be combined (Epoxy 325 is sold as a pre-packaged kit and Epoxy 325 Part A should be mixed in its entirety with Epoxy 325 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. This product is an emulsion product and should be mixed well before using.
Test the sealer in an inconspicuous area to ensure the desired coverage and appearance is achieved. The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. Workable time is about 1 hour. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. Apply material with relative humidity within the parameters. When the end of the pot life has been reached, you will find that the material becomes hard to apply and will actually tend to roll back up onto the roller. Do not try to continue application when the coating has reached this step. Applications made at different times with differing environmental conditions, may show slight variations in gloss. Coverage is approximately 200 sq. ft. per gallon. Make sure you test the surface for dryness prior to use and allow at least 8 hours before walking. A full cure will take up to 7 days to complete.
If you opt to recoat or topcoat this product, you must first be sure that all of the solvents and water have evaporated from the coating during the curing process. 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 the product 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.
Clean equipment, tools and surfaces with PM solvent. Unused or old material may be disposed of in a waste disposal site in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Use appropriate safety equipment during application and handling. Please refer to the safety data sheet (SDS) for additional precautionary instructions before use.
