When downtime is critical and must be kept to the barest minimum you need our newest extra heavy duty epoxy formulation. It's the latest in industrial floor epoxy technology that is incredibly versatile. This two part epoxy paint allows you to coat any concrete surface indoors or outdoors down to temperatures as low as -20 degree with incredible adhesion, unmatched abrasion resistance and dries to the touch in 1-2 hours! Now your floors can be back in service with light traffic in 3-4 Hrs and heavy traffic in 12 hours. Typical epoxy coatings need Temperatures above 55 degrees and 3-4 days for full cure. Most epoxy coatings cannot be applied in outdoor applications and those that do are not very durable.
Fast Drying Industrial Epoxy Floor Coating
ArmorGarage has overcome all the drawbacks of a fast drying, low temp/outdoor rated epoxies. Ultra Fast Epoxy Flooring has an amazing 725 psi adhesion test rating, this is far beyond any other epoxy coating, it has an abrasion loss rating of an amazingly low 3mgs which means it is exponentially more scratch and abrasion resistant than the best the competition has to offer. No other epoxy coating comes even close.
It is also UV proof so it won't yellow even under continuous exposure to sunlight, it is resistant to just about any and all chemicals, acids and even Skydrol which is the nastiest stuff you can imagine.
Works on concrete, wood(use bonding primer first), asphalt(use bonding primer first) or stone. Works indoors and outdoors. Low odor, about the same as conventional interior paints.
Industrial Epoxy Floor Coating is available in various colors. Please allow an extra 2-3 week lead time for nonstock colors.
Sold by the square foot, 300 sf minimum and must be ordered in 100 sf increments. As always we recommend you allow yourself at least a 10% safety factor when calculating the square footage of your floor. We also recommend you use a low nap lint free roller such as a mohair type roller. For slip resistant finish order the heavy duty nonslip additive(sold separately).
Mix ratio is 1:1, Pot Life is about 25 minutes, dries to touch in 1-2 hours, cures in about 3-4 Hrs for light traffic and full cure in 12 hrs for heavy vehicle traffic. See Tabs above for Color Chart and Tech Data Sheet for more product and application details.
INDUSTRIAL EPOXY FLOORING APPLICATION AND SPECIFICATIONS:
Important: Read all directions thoroughly. Recommended: Wear gloves, safety glasses and protective clothing or apron.
SURFACE PREP* New concrete should be allowed to cure for a minimum of 28 days. The concrete must be structurally sound, dry, and free of grease, oils, coatings, dust, curing compounds and other coatings or contaminants. Surface laitance must be removed. Rising moisture vapor emission rate must not exceed 3 lbs per 1000 sq. ft. over a 24 hour period as measured by calcium chloride test method ASTM F-1869. you can also test for moisture by taping and sealing a 3'x3' piece of plastic onto the floor and let sit for 48 hrs then check for any moisture underneath. The preferred method of surface preparation is abrasive blasting or grinding using diamond heads to achieve a final 80120 grit finish as an alternate a strong acid etching can be done. Surface must be perfectly clean & dry and have an emery board texture.
ADDING COLORANT Add colorant to Part A prior to mixing Parts A and B. Carefully monitor amount of colorant added to each gallon to ensure color is uniform. On large projects, make sure all colorant is from the same lot # or intermix all colorants.
AMOUNT OF COLORANT ADDED PER ONE GALLON OF PART A: Opaque 16 oz* Translucent 8 oz *Do not add more than 16 ounces of colorant to a gallon of Part A for any reason.
APPLICATION & MIXING INSTRUCTIONS:
Combine one part by volume of Part A with one part by volume of Part B and thoroughly mix using a low speed drill with mixing attachment for 3 minutes. Mix only what you can roll on within 20-25 minutes (approximately 1 gallon of mixed material per crew of two applicators wearing optional spiked shoes). Do not aerate the mix. Ultra Fast can be applied using short nap lint-free mohair roller. Once surface has been properly prepped, mix product in accurate Part B & Part A ratio in batches. We recommend getting some clear calibrated mixing containers to accurately measure out each component. Pour product directly onto surface in a bead from left to right and then roll out evenly and repeat till surface is fully covered. For slip resistance we recommend the addition of our nonslip additive.
CLEAN-UP, STORAGE AND DISPOSAL
CLEAN-UP: Clean tools and application equipment immediately after use with an active solvent like xylene. Clean spills or drips while still wet with solvent. Any dried coating will require mechanical abrasion for removal. Do not use alcohol IPA or Lacquer thinner blends that contain alcohol to clean equipment or tools.
HANDLING: Do not directly breathe mixed product vapors or dusts. Use of an air respirator is recommended. Individuals with lung or breathing problems or prior allergic reactions to isocyanates must not be exposed to vapors or dusts.
KEEP FROM FREEZING: Store in a cool, well ventilated area above freezing.
DISPOSAL: Collect with absorbent material. Dispose of in accordance with current local, state and federal regulations.
Do not aerate during mixing. Apply when temperature is -20° to 130°F. Do not apply if water or ice is present. Lower temperatures will slow cure time. Do not store at temperatures below 40°F. Cure new concrete 28 days before application. Do not apply to slabs on grade unless a heavy uninterrupted vapor barrier has been installed under the slab. Do not apply if the floor Moisture Vapor Rating is higher than 3 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.
MAINTENANCE AND CARE
ArmorGarage Industrial Flooring Systems are monolithic, making them very very easy to clean because dirt and contaminants remain on the nonstick surface. Maintenance should be only mild soap and water. Coating can be cleaned with sponge mop, sponge squeegee, damp mop, power washer etc.
CAUTION: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Avoid contact with skin. If splashed in the eyes remove contact lenses if worn. Flush eyes with clean water. If irritation occurs get medical attention. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Take immediately to hospital or physician. For more information refer to Material Safety Data Sheet.
