H20 HyperPRIME Epoxy Quick Cure Primer | 1 Hour Recoat

H20 HyperPRIME is an excellent quick cure epoxy primer with deep penetration of concrete, wood and metal surfaces with a short 1 hour recoat time and outstanding 450 psi adhesion.  H20 HpyerPRIME is a two component, water based primer that has the bonding characteristics of a solvent based primer without the offensive solvent based odor. HyperPRIME is great for projects requiring a tough, bonding primer to improve adhesion with the surface.

HyperPRIME with it it superior adhesion and deep penetration is recommended as a first step primer for protecting concrete floors where there is a concern with concrete outgassing and the bubbles that can result in damage to a floor coating system. With its quick 1 hour recoat time, HyperPRIME is also a great primer when doing a 1 day floor coating system when using quick cure epoxy, flakes and polyaspartic coatings. HyperPRIME is easy to apply with superior chemical resistance, abrasion resistance and substrate penetration. It is a low temperature product and can be applied down to 45°.

HyerPRIME is a 4:1 mix ratio epoxy (4 parts A and 1 part B) and comes in a 1 quart kit (CLEAR ONLY) and 5 gallon kit, available in clear and 6  colors.

PRIMER:   None required

TOPCOAT:  Can apply wide range of epoxy, polyaspartic and urethane coatings.

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 comes pre-packaged by weight. The kits should be mixed in its entirety. If partial kits are to be used, the ratio of mixing is 4 Parts A to 1 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. 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, using a dip and roll method. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. Apply material with relative humidity within the parameters shown on the technical data. Once the end of the pot life has been reached, it will be difficult to apply the material, the product will roll back up onto the roller. Once this has occurred, do not continue the application. Direct sunlight or high temperatures may cause visible roller making during application. Applying the product too thick may result in product failure. If using a chip brush on the edges, it’s recommended to run a 9” roller over the edges to even out the texture and look of the floor. When coating over concrete, the spread rate is 300-350 sq.ft. per gallon. If coating over an existing coating, the spread rate is 500-600 sq.ft. per gallon.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING:  Installing multiple coats of this product is acceptable. 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. When recoating this product with subsequent coats of urethane, or a polyaspartic, it’s imperative to make sure the HyperPRIME is fully cured, otherwise, the solvent in the top coat will attack the primer and there will be bonding issues. If recoating this product after 24 hours of it being down, then the primer must be mechanically screened and de-glossed to ensure there is no inter-coat adhesion issues.

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 floor is fully cured, refer to the cure schedule. Allow the floor to remain completely dry during the curing process.
