DT-454 Quick Cure UV High Performance Epoxy

DT-454 is a 100% solids, epoxy resin quick cure coating designed to provide superior bonding characteristics with excellent impact, chemical and UV resistance.  Withstands up to 9 lbs. of hydrostatic pressure for use in areas susceptible to moisture.  Designed as a high performance protective floor coating for a wide range of commercial, industrial and residential projects.

DT-454 should be used wherever a fast curing (6-7 hour re-coat time) durable, high build, protective floor coating is required.   DT-454 has no solvent odors and therefore can be used in occupied areas. It’s ideal for both base coats and topcoats in full broadcast systems. It is great for low temperature applications and can be applied down to 40F.

Coverage rate for DT-454 depends on how thick applied.  At 100% solids, nothing lost to evaporation after it dries (compare to 50% solids epoxy at big box stores which lose 1/2 of material in container to evaporation).  For garage floors recommended 10 mils minimum (160 sq’/gallon) epoxy basecoat thickness.  One 3 gallon kit of DT-454 protects most 2 car garages, covering 480 sq’ at 10 mils thick in a one coat application (applied at 160 sq’/gallon).

DT-454 comes in clear or can be tinted with one of 14 Pigmented Colors (pigment sold separately by the quart).  Pre-pigmented DT-454 available by special order with purchase of 60 gallons or more.

DT-454 is sold in 30 oz sample kits, 3 gallon and 15 gallon kits of clear product.

Apply DT-454 as a  base coat at between 10 mils (160 sq/gal)- 16 mils (100 sq’/gal) and with its great durability and UV resistance use as topcoat as needed.

PRIMER: Optional.  When needed recommend the 5015 Water Based Epoxy Primer available in 20 colors to easily match color of your topcoat.  For quick one day application consider the very fast curing 7001 Moisture Cured Polyurethane Primer (recoat at 75F in 1 to 2 hours).

For applying directly to VCT, ceramic tile, vinyl, linoleum or asbestos mastics, cutback and carpet glues with minimal preparation consider our Perfect Primer Sealer.

TOPCOAT:  Can apply clear coat of  urethane or polyaspartic coating including  Aspartic 85 or our 100% solids Aspartic 100.

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

SUBSTRATE 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 2 gallons of part A with 1 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. Improper mixing may result in product failure.

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. Typically no more than 3-4 minutes maximum.  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.  Do not mix A and B together no more than 2 minutes.

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.

Pour the DT-454 out on the floor immediately after mixing and do not let the DT-454 sit in the bucket Leaving it in the bucket for as little as a minute or two can shorten the pot life by half or more.

Product Application: Properly prime the substrate prior to applying this product. Use a brush or ¾” nap roller to apply the mixed material. This product can be applied using a knotched, or serrated squeegee, then back rolled to maintain appropriate thickness. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. It is best to maintain a wet edge to avoid roller marks. Direct sunlight or high temperatures may cause visible roller making during application.

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 exists, remove with a standard detergent cleaner and ensure floor is clean and dry prior to coating. When recoating this product with subsequent coats of urethane, make sure to apply the recoat within the 24 hour time frame. 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.


  • Colors or gloss may be affected by high humidity, low temperatures, chemical exposure, or exposure to lighting such as sodium vapor lights.
  • For best results use a 3/4” nap roller
  • Slab on grade requires moisture barrier
  • Substrate temperature must be 5°F above dew point
  • All new concrete must be cured for at least 30 days
  • Physical properties are typical values and not specifications
  • Tire contact may cause staining or discoloration (long term parked vehicles)
  • Colors may vary from batch to batch, therefore use only product from the same batch for an entire job.
