Aspartic 85 Slow Set Polyaspartic | Low Temp 30°F  | Low Odor Option

Aspartic 85 Slow Set is a two component, 85% solids, solvent based low temp polyaspartic aliphatic coating designed as an extremely tough, durable and decorative topcoat to protect high performance epoxy floor concrete coating systems. Aspartic 85 Slow Set offers excellent abrasion and chemical resistance, is UV Stable, and has a beautiful, extremely clear, high gloss appearance available in 14 colors and a new LOW ODOR option!  Long 45-60 minutes working time for easier application.

Offering quick back in-service times, Aspartic 85 Slow Set 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 85 Slow Set Can Be Applied In Cold Weather Down To 30°F (cold temperatures will significantly slow down recoat and back in-service times).

The spread rate of the Aspartic 85 Slow Set over a Metallic System is 500-600 sq.ft. per gallon, as a clear topcoat over a smooth surface apply at 500 sq’/gallon and as a pigmented topcoat over a smooth surface apply at 400 sq’/gallon and over a full broadcast flake floor, it is 130-160 sq.ft. per gallon.

Aspartic 85 Go Slow is sold in 30 oz trial size kits, 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).  New LOW ODOR version now available when using indoors with minimal ventilation.  Pre-pigmented Aspartic 85 Go Slow available by special order with purchase of 60 gallons or more.

Aspartic 85 Go Slow is also available in a faster setting version, Aspartic 85,  for even quicker back in-service and faster recoat times.

Aspartic 85 So Slow is not recommended for application direct to concrete but designed for application over interior epoxy systems with solid colors, flakes and quartz granules.  Not recommended for outdoor projects.

PRIMER: Recommended as topcoat to high performance epoxy systems

TOPCOAT: None recommended.  Can apply multiple coats of Aspartic 85.

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. This product has pot life of about 45-60 minutes. Applying the product beyond the usable pot life can result in surface irregularities. When pigmenting the product, an example is making a 3 gallon batch, pour one gallon of Part B into a mixing bucket, then add the desired amount of pigment into the part B and blend. Then take Part A, and pour up to the 3 gallon mark, assuring it’s an exact 2:1 ratio, and blend again until 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: Use a brush or 3/8” nap roller to apply the mixed material. We recommend pouring out the Slow Go onto the floor, use a flat squeegee to spread out the product, then back roll using a 3/8” nap roller cover. The incredible characteristic of Slow Go is that there is so much working time available, roller marks are usually never an issue. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. Properly prime the substrate. It is best to maintain a wet edge to avoid roller marks. 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.

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.
