6012-2F Fast Set Epoxy Grout & Coating For Cool Temps and Damp Conditions

6012-2F  is a unique multi-use 100% solids epoxy designed as a grout & coating for a wide variety of cool & damp conditions.  As a 100% solids, 2 component epoxy, it is an extremely versatile, advanced polymer offering high strength, very adhesive, fast set, moisture tolerant, extremely tough with superior chemical resistance to corrosive waters and acids. 6012-2F is a very quick setting, rapid reacting polymer system designed for cool condition applications on industrial slab-on-grade floors, secondary containment prime coats, etc. without the need for the application of external applied heat. As an airfield grout 6012-2F meets FAA-P606 requirements for bonding in-pavement airfield light fixture bases into concrete pavement, kerfs, docking systems for taxi ways & landing zones. Comes standard in a clear or gray color option in 3 gallon and 15 gallon kits.  May be brush, roller or spray applied. Cartridge applied for crack repair. Industrial Floor Coating– 100% Sand Broadcast.  The 6012-2F is designed to provide penetration, wetting and sealing of substrates and surfaces as a fast set, high quality adhesive coating and is used with 30 grit sand as a surface broadcast. Cured film conforms to USDA requirements for coatings in incidental contact with food, does not support bacteria. 6012-2F is self-priming when used on a properly prepared surfaces for adhesive bonding. Base Cost; approximately 10 to 12 mils, broadcast sand to refusal and allow to set. Remove excess sand and seal sand surface using 6012-2F or 5500 Aliphatic Polyurea Roll-Down clear coat.  Note:  6012-2F is not designed to be used as a floor coating without using a full sand broadcast. Airfield Grout As a grout the 6012-2F meets the FAA-P606 requirements for bonding in-pavement airfield light fixture bases into concrete pavement, kerfs, docking systems for taxi ways and landing zones.  the product is also used for rapid repair in damp conditions on exterior concrete slabs, airfields, etc, or on interior floor applications where the concrete surfaces have been damaged and aggregate is exposed. Grout for Core & Kerks Assure that the surface of the concrete in the core or kerf is dry, clean and free of contaminants and dust.  Vacuum clean and wipe down surfaces or remove debris that may affect bonding.  Pre-measure aggregates for grout mixes.   Grout blends;  part mixed product to 2 – 2.5 parts selected aggregate for pour ability.  Hot or arm conditions 6012-2F will set very quickly in large mass, such as a 5 gallon pail of mixed product and sand.  Mix and pour blended grout quickly. May be brush, roller or spray applied.

  PREPARATION Concrete must have a minimum 28 day cureprior to application. Remove any curing agent, form release materials, oils, wax, moisture or any material that may effect bonding. *Perform a Moisture Vapor Test before making the coating application on concrete. Clean by abrasive “brush-off” blast. Provide rough profile minimum 2 mils. Review ASTM D4259 Abrading Concrete and ASTM F1869 Measuring Moisture Vapor Emission. . APPLICATION Cartridge Application: The 6012-2F may be used forsmall fill applications for maintenance applications aroundlights, etc., using a 2:1 duplex cartridge fitted with a 3/8inch x 30 element static mixer. Standard Application – Mixing: Jiffy mixer – 650 rpm drill motor to mix product. Mix until a uniform blend of the two part is evident after adding part B into part A. Do not change the proportions. Mix completely for approximately one to two minutes. Power stir – continue agitation during the applications. Avoid mixing air into the blend. Mix part B before use to assure pigment is in suspension. Mix at 2:1 ratio. 6012-2F is fast set and must not be left in the mixing bucket or it will set very fast. Grout: Pre-measure aggregates for grout mixes. Grout blends; 1 part mixed product to 2 – 2.5 parts selected aggregate for pour-ability. Pressure pad grouts use high aggregate content, ratio is dependent on the aggregate use. Observe product and aggregate temperature and environmental temperature. Hot or warm conditions 6012-2F will set very quickly in volume – several minutes. Mix and pour immediately in warm conditions. Thinning: Not required. Aggregate: Use a 30 grit clean, low dust silica or garnet sand. Broadcast to refusal and allow to set. Remove excess sand and apply a top seal coat of 10 to 16 mils. Note: Should changes of the surface of the set product be required, allow the in-place product/grout to set, grind to alter surface as need and apply a new product/grout mix to the area as needed. Reapply: Topcoat 1 to 4 Hours or as soon as the product has set and is becoming tack free. Full cure 24 to 48 hours @ 70ºF. Accelerate cure by using heaters or increase environmental temperature for faster cure. Recoating/repair; If the primer has reached complete cure and hardness, or if subjected to extended exposure to sunlight, uniformly abrade the surface and feather the edges. The surface must be roughen sufficiently to provide a profile adequate to insure a mechanical bond. Curing times: Heat curing may be used to increase dryingspeed and resistant properties. Curing times are significantly shorter for higher temperatures or lower thickness and longer for lower temperatures or higher thickness. Times are affected by method of application, the quantity of thinner used, the amount of ventilation and air circulation and relative humidity, etc. Inspection: Check for desired dry film thickness and forpinholes, holidays, bare areas, etc. before placing additional coats or top coats over primer. Packaging: Three gallon and fifteen gallon kits and drum kits Color: 6012-2F Clear, 6012-2F Gray. Note: Test the product on the area to be coated beforemaking an application.

Application Instructions

Preparation: Concrete must have a minimum 28 day cure prior to application.  Remove any curing agent, form release materials, oils, wax, moisture or any material that may affect bonding.  *Perform a Moisture Vapor Test before making the coating application on concrete.  Clean by abrasive “brush-off” blast.  Provide rough profile minimum 2 mils.   Review ASTM D4259 Abrading Concrete and ASTM F1869 Measuring Moisture Vapor Emission.  Seal/repair all bug-holes, cracks and spalls, see ASTC data sheets on 830, 4034 and 3004 (joints). Use an ASTC primer over filled cracks and voids.

Do not apply 6012-2F to floors that have not been properly repaired, treated and primed or that do not have a pH of 7-8.5.   Remove all old coatings.

To apply over existing material/coating:  The existing coating must be abraded to produce a profile of a minimum of 3 mils.  The application over existing materials is only as good as the existing material that is in place.  Such materials should be well bonded and very secure to the substrate.

Mixing
Jiffy mixer - 650 rpm drill motor to mix product. Mix until a uniform blend of the two part is evident after adding part B into part A. Do not change the proportions. Mix completely for approximately one to two minutes. Power stir - continue agitation during the applications. Avoid mixing air into the blend. Mix part B before use to assure pigment is in suspension. Mix at 2:1 ratio. 6012-2F is fast set and must not be left in the mixing bucket or it will set very fast. After the product is mixed, pour out and squeegee quickly then back roll to desired primer thickness.

*Mixed product with sand will set slower than neat product without sand. Contact with concrete will reduce exotherm slowing set time in cool conditions and lengthen pot life and set time.

Improper mixing may result in product failure.

For best mixing results and proper blending of parts A and B, recommend a Jiffy Mixer style drill mixer.

Temperature Range
40°F to 90°F (air and surface) and 5°F above dew point. Conditions below 40°F, warm the application area if practical and/or keep the packaged product in a warmed area before using. For colder conditions consult ASTC. For warmer application temperatures use 6012-2S medium set, slower version for warmer conditions.

Limitations
The 6012 product may set faster in hot conditions and slower in cold conditions. Use the 6012-2F for cool conditions or for fast applications and for opening to traffic. In hot conditions use the 6012-2S, hot conditions produce similar set times of the 6012-2F . 6012 is subject to blushing when not used with sand, depending on environmental conditions. (for non-blushing epoxy systems contact ASTC). Thin film floor systems take longer to set then large grout applications. Caution should be used when making floor applications as the product still sets fast in the mixing container. Keep out of direct sunlight and store the product kits on wood pallets at room temperature.

Concrete;  Best results over 2 to 3 mil profile and vapor barrier as needed. Hot conditions: the product may set faster in hot conditions and slower in cold conditions.
