MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

SURFACE PREPARATION  E370P Polyurethane Enamel is a top coat only and is not recommended to be used directly over unprimed surfaces. Apply over appropriate primers or intermediate coats. Surfaces must be free from all oil, grease, dirt, water, or other foreign matter.  E370P Polyurethane is not recommended for immersion service.

Steel: All surface contamination, such as dirt, dust, grease, oil and other deposits must be removed prior to abrasive blast cleaning. Solvent cleaning as outlined in Steel Structures Painting Council’s Specification SSPC-SPI should be used to remove all foreign matter. If previous service has left surface deposits of chemicals, they also must be removed by pressure washing and followed by a thorough water rinsing.

Remove all rust, mill scale, loose paint and any previous existing coatings by dry abrasive blasting all steel surfaces before applying the coating system.

Recommended primers for the E370P are E15M Chemical Mastic, PC-2.8 Epoxy Coating, PC-517 Epoxy Mastic,  E100 Aluminum Polyurethane and PC-110 Epoxy Primer. Follow the recommended recoat time per label in structions. In some cases an intermediate coat may need to be applied when a 3 coat system is necessary or desired.

Galvanized Steel/Aluminum and Non-Ferous Metals: Degrease and chemically clean surfaces in accordance with SSPC-SP1 Solvent Cleaning Specification. The surface should be sweep blasted and primed with E15M, E100 Aluminum Polyurethane or PC-110 primer. Recoat time is minimum 5-6 hours for PC-110, 8 hours for E15M and E100 is 2-6 hours at 75 before applying E370P High Build Polyurethane.

Zinc Rich Primer Sand blast to a SSPC-SP10 “near white” blast or SSPC-SP6 “commercial” blast. Apply MCU-104 at 2.5 to 3.5 mil DFT. Allow a minimum of 4-5 hours recoat time @ 75°F and 50% R.H before applying CT-370 High Build Polyurethane. For best results, apply an intermediate coat of PC-110, CM-15 or PC-2.8 Epoxy

Marginally Prepared Steel Surfaces:

Degrease and chemically clean surfaces in accordance to SSPC-SP1 Solvent Cleaning spec to remove all oils, grease, and other soluble contaminants.  If steel is chemically contaminated (e.g., acid, caustic, or salts), high pressure water cleaning at a minimum of 5,000 psi is recommended to remove chemicals.  The pH of steel should be tested to ensure that surface of steel is between 7.0-8.5 pH.  After the above process has been completed, power tool cleaning is to be done.  Power tool clean to remove all mill scale, loose rust, loose paint and other detrimental foreign matter.  Apply two coats of our E100 Aluminum Polyurethane at 2-3 mils DFT.  Minimum recoat time for E100 is two (2) hours, maximum recoat time is six (6) hours at 75°F and 50% relative humidity.  E15M Chemical Mastic or PC-636 Low Temp.  Epoxy may also be used as a primer under the CT-370 High Build Polyurethane on marginally prepared surfaces.

Concrete/Masonry Surfaces:

New concrete must be cured at least a minimum of twenty-eight (28) days before applying a coating.  All laitance, efflorescence, chemical contaminants, grease, oil, and other foreign material must be removed.  The  prepared surface must be clean, dry, and structurally sound.  Accepted methods of surface preparation are  dry abrasive blast, wet abrasive blast, vacuum shot blast, high pressure water blast, scarifying, scabbling and acid etch/water rinse.

Voids, cavities, spalled areas, and other structural defects should be trowel-grouted smooth with CF- 615  Epoxy Crack Filler or PC-1000 Epoxy Mortar.  Rub smooth with a hand grinding stone any burrs or high protruding aggregate left uneven by troweling.

Consult Gulf Coast Paint regarding the testing of the concrete for proper pH, vapor barrier testing and surface porosity.

Acceptable primers for the CT-370 Polyurethane are PC-149, PC-155, and PC-1703 Epoxy Concrete Primers. An Epoxy Intermediate coat may be needed if higher film build is necessary.   Products such as CM-15, PC-636, PC-275, PC-517 or 100% solids materials such as PC-1803 or PC-1850 can be used.   CT-370 is not designed for forklift and other heavy trafficked areas.  Use CT-332 Clear or CT-352 Pigmented Polyester Polyurethane for maximum floor protection.

Block Walls

Block walls should be free of salts, soap film, oil, grease, dirt, dust and other contaminants and foreign material that will interfere with adhesion of coating system.  The block must be dry and free of moisture.  Apply Gulf Coat Paint’s PC-145 Block Filler at a rate of 75-100 square feet per gallon. Use a 3/4” – 1-1/4″  roller cover.  Apply PC-145 Epoxy in multiple directions for uniform filling of block.  Block walls should be evenly and uniformly filled.  Allow PC-145 Block Filler to cure for 24-72 hours before applying an Epoxy Intermediate Coat, e.g., PC-110, CM-15, or PC-517.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

Stir each component to a uniform consistency, using a slow speed explosion proof variable speed drill with a Jiffy mixer.  Make sure any pigment settled to the bottom is incorporated.  Do not vary proportions.  E370P is prepared by mixing 4 parts Base (Part A) to 1 part Hardener (Part B) with the power mixer.  E370P may be thinned up to 20% with SU-94 for spray applications (can substitute thinning up to 5% – 10% with a 100% Xylene).

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

NOTE:  Always wear protective gloves and clothing while mixing and applying E370P.  Do not get on skin.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

Best method of application is conventional or airless spray use up to 10% Thinner.  Flush equipment thoroughly with MEK solvent before using and use a moisture trap on the air supply.
