E-Green Polyurea Basecoat for Concrete Floors | Low Temp 0°F | 100% Solids | 300% Elongation

E-GREEN is two component 100% solids, plant-based Polyurea coating that is environmentally friendly and VOC Compliant. E-GREEN exhibits superior bonding properties, has virtually no odor, and has fantastic viscosity, exhibiting amazing workability. Because of its supreme flexibility, when used as a basecoat, the floors will have exceptional chip and impact resistance. E-GREEN is ideal for one day systems because of its fast cure rate.  Not recommended as topcoat as not UV stable or where moisture is present during application and curing.

E-Green Polyurea is a two component, 100% solids, high build low temp polyurea aliphatic coating offering an extremely flexible, tough, durable and impact resistant basecoat with little to no odor.  Recommended for any area that requires a highly flexible primer and/or fast-curing primer or base coat.  Can be used for full broadcast chip/flake or quartz broadcast systems or solid color rolled coats.

With a 300% elongation, great for use as a flexible membrane on floors that flex including wooden floors.  When used on wooden floors suggest first applying a penetrating epoxy primer designed for bonding to wood surfaces such as our E5015 Epoxy Primer then apply the E-Green Polyurea at rate of 100 sq’/gallon.

E-Green Polyurea can be applied in cold weather down to 0°F.  (cold temperatures will significantly slow down recoat and back in-service times).

E-Green Polyurea is sold in 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).

The spread rate of the /E-Green Clear as a clear topcoat over a smooth surface apply at 300 to 350 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 130-150 sq.ft. per gallon.  Can be applied as thick as 16 mils or 100 sq’/gallon in one coat.

PRIMER: If desired can use the E5015 Epoxy Primer
TOPCOAT:  Most any solid color epoxy, polyaspartic or urethane

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. Mix for no more than 1 minute. Avoid whipping air into the coating. Improper mixing may result in product failure. Applying the product beyond the usable pot life can result in surface irregularities.

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

PRODUCT APPLICATION: We recommend pouring out the E- GREEN onto the floor, use a flat squeegee to spread out the product, then back roll using a 3/8” nap roller cover. Because it’s a fast-curing product, we recommend squeegeeing the material, then back rolling, and cutting out last. There will be enough time to broadcast into the material- it will accept the aggregate. It is more important to squeegee and back roll first so the product levels out easier. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. 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. For those with limited experience working with fast curing resins, it is recommended to make small batches initially.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING: Installing multiple coats of this product is acceptable. Refer to the cure schedule as a guideline to follow. It is best to test the coating before recoating or top coating. 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. PLEASE NOTE: colder temperatures require longer cure times before product can be recoated. Prior to coating the floor, make sure there are no contaminants. 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 remove the gloss of the previous floor prior to coating to ensure a trouble-free bond. If the coating has been curing for more than 10 hours, then it is necessary to screen it and
solvent mop prior to coating over it.

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.
