Aspartic 100 Low Temp High Build Polyaspartic Coating

Aspartic 100 is a two component, 100% solids, high build low temp polyaspartic aliphatic coating designed as an extremely tough, durable and decorative topcoat to protect high performance epoxy floor concrete coating systems.

Aspartic 100 offers excellent abrasion and chemical resistance, is UV Stable, and has a beautiful, extremely clear, high gloss appearance available in 11 colors. Offering quick back in-service times, Aspartic 100 is a slow curing polyaspartic solution to allow more working time and yet still allows quicker back in service times than traditional epoxy or urethane coatings.

Aspartic 100 can be applied in cold weather down to 30F.  (cold temperatures will significantly slow down recoat and back in-service times).

Aspartic 100 is sold in 1.5 quart, 3 gallon and 15 gallon kits. It comes in clear or can be tinted with one of 14 Pigmented Colors (pigment sold separately by the quart).  Pre-pigmented Aspartic 100 available by special order with purchase of 60 gallons or more. This product is typically used for thinner mil’d systems.

The spread rate of the Aspartic 100 Clear as a clear topcoat over a smooth surface apply at 350 to 400 sq’/gallon and as a pigmented topcoat over a smooth surface apply at 250 to 350 sq’/gallon and over a full broadcast flake floor, it is 130-160 sq.ft. per gallon.  Can be applied as thick as 32 mils or 50 sq’/gallon in one coat.

PRIMER: Recommended as topcoat to high performance epoxy systems
TOPCOAT: None recommended.  Can apply multiple coats of Aspartic 100.

MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

PRODUCT STORAGE: Product must be stored in an area that will bring the product to room temperature prior to using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degree F. Keep from freezing

SURFACE PREPARATION: Preparation methods may vary depending on the system being applied. For a complete system thickness that is higher than 10 mils dry, a fine brush blast (shot blast), is recommended. To assure a trouble free bond, all dust, oil, dirt, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed. It is recommended to perform a moisture test to determine that the concrete has an appropriate vapor barrier. This can be done by placing a 4’X4’ plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. Once 24 hours has passed, and the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate does not show signs of eventual hydrostatic pressure problems that may later cause disbonding. This test does not guarantee, however, that there may not be future hydrostatic pressure issues in the future.

PRODUCT MIXING: This product has a two to one mix ratio by volume-merely mix two gallons of part A with one gallon of part B. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. Avoid whipping air into the coating.  When pigmenting the product (ex. making a 3 gallon batch), pour 1 gallon of Part B into a measuring/mixing bucket, then add the desired amount of pigment into the Part B and mix until blended. Then add the part A up to the 3 gallon mark and mix and blend very well until material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. 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.

PRODUCT APPLICATION: It is recommended to dip and roll this product using a 3/8” nap roller cover. It is best to maintain a wet edge to avoid roller marks. Direct sunlight or high temperatures may cause visible roller making during application. Applying the product too thick may result in solvent entrapment and product failure. Relative humidity can have a dramatic influence on the curing characteristics. The product will dry quicker and have less working time when the relative humidity is higher while a lower relative humidity will lengthen the dry time and working time. This product has a short usable pot life of about 15 minutes which is substantially shorter than the actual gel time for the product. Applying the product beyond the usable pot life can result in surface irregularities.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING:Installing multiple coats of this product is acceptable. If recoating this product, be sure that all of the solvents have evaporated from the coating during the curing process. Refer to the cure schedule as a guideline to follow, however it is best to test the coating before recoating or topcoating. This is done by pressing your thumb on the coating to ensure a fingerprint impression is not visible. If there is no impression visible, then coating the floor can be done. Note, colder temperatures require longer cure times before product can be recoated. Prior to coating the floor, make sure there are no contaminants exist. If contaminants or a blush exists, remove with a standard detergent cleaner and ensure floor is clean and dry prior to coating. It is recommended to degloss the previous floor prior to coating to ensure a trouble free bond.

CLEANUP/FLOOR CLEANING:Use solvents for cleanup. When cleaning the floor, CAUTION! Some cleaners may affect the color of the installed floor. Test each cleaner used in a small area, ensuring no damage occurs. Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the floor is fully cured, refer to the cure schedule. Allow the floor to remain completely dry during the curing process.

RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure). It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on actual complete system application, surface may be slippery, especially when wet or contaminated; keep surface clean and dry.
