HyperFLEX Quick Cure Low Temp Epoxy

HyperFLEX is a 100% solids, quick cure, flexible epoxy resin coating membrane designed to provide superior flexibility with extremely rapid cure rates for one day system application. Its outstanding bonding and flexibility properties makes HyperFLEX ideal for wood and concrete deck membranes, joint sealing and crack repair (when mixed with Fumed Silica), small crack bridging, flexible grouts and overlays. It is great for low temperature applications and can be applied down to 40F.

HyperFLEX comes in clear or can be tinted with one of 14 Pigmented Colors (pigment sold separately by the quart).    HyperFLEX is sold in 2 gallon and 10 gallon kits of clear product. Pigment sold separately in quart containers, amount required depends on color. Pre-pigmented HyperFLEX available by special order with purchase of 60 gallons or more.

Apply HyperFLEX as a base coat at between 10 mils (160 sq/gal)- 16 mils (100 sq’/gal).  For application over wood surfaces or concrete requiring a flexible membrane or coating, requires application of HyperFLEX clear at 90 sq’/gallon as a base coat with no pigment or chips/flakes added.  This serves as a base and then you would apply your normal coating system as if the HyperFLEX wasn’t there but just the normal wood or concrete.

HyperFLEX is not UV resistant and not meant to be used without a colored topcoat or full flake broadcast.

ONE DAY FULL FLAKE SYSTEM 

HyperFLEX can be used by experienced professionals in 70F and above weather as a quick set one day garage, basement and other concrete full chip/flake floor coating system where the goal is “In and out” same day.

To extend working time for the HyperFLEX Epoxy base coat by about 5 minutes, add 5 oz  solvent per gallon HyperFLEX (Xylene, MEK, Acetone – use Xylene for best results).  This extends working time to about 20 min, typically enough to do a full flake broadcast.  Make sure any wet spots that may appear a few minutes after flake broadcast while HyperFLEX is still wet are filled with flakes.  Due to the quick curing nature of HyperFLEX, you can walk on the HyperFLEX in only 1 hour (depending on conditions) to complete the project and apply the Aspartic 85 Fast or Aspartic 85 Slow Set Clear Polyaspartic topcoat.

PRIMER:   None required.
TOPCOAT:  Can apply any epoxy,  urethane or polysapartic coating system including HyperREZ, Aspartic 85 or Aspartic 100.

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

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 one to one mix ratio by volume-merely mix 1 gallon 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 2 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. Then add the part A up to the 2 gallon mark and mix and blend very well until material is thoroughly mixed and streak free.

When using HyperFLEX as a basecoat for a flake/chip or quartz granule system where more time is required to broadcast, can slow down the curing process and allow up to 10 minutes of working time by adding no more than 5 oz of solvent per gallon of HyperFLEX (Can use Acetone, MEK or Xylene).  Xylene will give you best results and longest working time improvement.  Using solvent will also pushback the recoat window by about 1 hour. 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: HyperFLEX can be used as flexible membrane, a crack and joint filler, and as a base coat for rolled coats or broadcast floors. When being used to fill in joints and cracks, make a small batch first, then add fumed silica such as Aerosil or Cabosil until you achieve your desired thickness. In a mass form, the product cures very quickly, you have 10 minutes to install it. It’s recommended to make small batches.

When the product is being used a flexible membrane, it’s recommended to be installed at 90 sq.ft. per gallon without pigment, clear only. Because this product cures fast and work time is limited, it’s recommended to coat smaller sections at a time. The ideal method of installation is to immediately pour out the ribbon of material, use a squeegee to squeegee out the product, then have another installer immediately following to back roll. This product can be applied using a notched, or serrated squeegee, then back rolled with a ¾” nap roller to maintain appropriate thickness.

When using HyperFLEX as a base coat for a full broadcast system, once the product has been squeegeed and back rolled, immediately broadcast the aggregate into the floor. Again, in a mass form, the product cures very rapidly, once mixing is complete, pour the product onto the concrete to begin the installation process. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. It is best to maintain a wet edge to avoid roller marks.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING:  Installing multiple coats of this product is acceptable. If recoating this product, be sure that the product is fully cured before recoating. 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.

Due to the very fast setting of the HyperFLEX, recoat window is short, and can recoat in 1 to 2 hours (use thumb test to confirm it is tack free).  Do NOT wait longer as it will become too hard and after 4 to 5 hours may have to sand it for proper recoat adhesion.

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.

LIMITATIONS:

  • 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.
