Satin-Finish Urethane Topcoat Max Wear Urethane™ 960
An indestructible yet durable non-slip urethane topcoat designed to repel chemicals and resist abrasions. Best used as a topcoat after Epoxy Max 100 in clear or colored industrial floors.
Supplied as a three-component kit and easily applied with a solvent-rated nap roller or brush. Best used as a topcoat in clear or solid color floor systems after the Epoxy Max 100 basecoat. 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.
A built in non-slip additive and satin-finish make this product unique with UV color stability for long term color retention. This product will not fade, chip or delaminate and regular maintenance can keep concrete looking good for years to come.
Surface must be clean, dry, and completely free of loose particles, grease, oil, or any substance that would interfere with proper bond. Perform vapor testing to verify that the vapor pressure is below 3lb/ 24hr/1000 sq. ft. If moisture vapor transmission exceeds 3lbs, first use Vapor-Tek 440.
When applying directly to concrete, we recommend either mechanical scarification or acid etching until a suitable profile is achieved (CSP Level 1 or 2). If acid is used to clean the concrete, neutralize the surface completely and rinse it with water prior to application. Concrete must be dry for at least 24-48 hours prior to application.
When applying on a newly coated epoxy, be sure to apply within the epoxy re-coat window to ensure proper adhesion to the epoxy coating. If applying top coat outside of the epoxyâs recoat window the surface must be abraded by using an 80/100 grit sandpaper, diamond or Diamabrush. Be sure to sand the previous coating until no gloss is visible. Before applying the coating, be sure the sanded surface is clean, dry and free of contaminants such as dirt, dust, or other foreign materials.
Max Wear Urethaneâ˘ 960 has three (3) components. Kits come prepackaged and should be used in their entirety and should not be broken down. Mix at a slow speed to avoid whipping air into the coating. Improper mixing may result in product failure. Once the material is mixed, it cannot be re-sealed for later use.
Using a mechanical mixer, pre-mix Part B in original container at low speed. Once mixed, slowly add Part A and mix for three (3) minutes or until thoroughly blended. Add Part C and mix for three (3) additional minutes or until mix is uniform and streak free.
Using a brush, cut in any edges. Pour remaining material into a roller pan and apply using a 3/8â nap roller. Apply in a smooth, even, uniform manner. Dip the roller in the material and lightly roll off excess coating in the roller pan. Roll across your area right to left or left to right, 2 parallel paths on the concrete that are approximately 8-10 feet in length. Repeat the dip and roll process 2 more times, so there are 6 adjacent roller paths in front of the applicator. Agitate the mixed material in the roller pan frequently, as the Part C filler can settle to the bottom of the pan. Back-roll the coating up and back across the previously applied paths (perpendicular) using a V-shape pattern to evenly spread the material and remove roller lines. There should be just enough material on the floor to cover the area.
For best results, finish roll the coating on spiked shoes by pulling a roller across the entire area in the same direction as the original roller passes to further blend any remaining overlap and roller marks. The material will not flow out, so the coating will cure with any defects that are visible. Reroll areas that do not look satisfactory.
To help prevent visual differences in application be sure to minimize the time between tie-ins. Use control joints or natural breaks as breaking points between mixes. Continue to blend overlaps and roller marks. Max Wear UrethaneTâ˘ 960 does not self-level, so coating will cure defects that are visible. Reroll areas that do not look satisfactory. Do not back roll coating if it begins to tack up. This could result in an orange peel texture and/or a whiteish haze in the coating. Applying the coating thicker than recommended or rolling the material when sticky will cause bubbles, roller lines, and create an inconsistent appearance.
Clean up mixing and application equipment immediately after use. Use toluene, acetone or xylene; do not use alcohol. Follow solvent manufacturerâs safety instructions. Be sure to follow all local, state and federal regulations when disposing of materials.
Refer to the SDS sheet before use. Safety precautions must be strictly followed during storage, handling, and use. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should be worn at all times. PPE will include (but is not limited to): Safety glasses with side shields and high-quality nitrile gloves.
To maintain the appearance and extend the life of the newly sealed surface, it is imperative to have a routine maintenance program. Dirt and debris that is tracked over a finished floor will quickly scratch and dull the surface. Place walk-off mats at entrances. Sweep and mop/scrub floors regularly using soft bristles/pads and a mild cleaner. Some cleaning products and equipment or improper use of these can damage a surface. Remove spills quickly to minimize damage and/or stains. For systems that support parked vehicles or other heavy items on rubber wheels, place a small piece of nonporous material, such as sheet metal or plexiglass between the tires and floor to prevent tire marks. Reapplication may be necessary in heavy traffic areas.
