Vertical Wall Epoxy Coating

Vertical Wall Epoxy is a two component water based epoxy coating that exhibits chemical resistance and abrasion resistance rivaling solvent based products. Itwas specifically designed for vertical applications up to 8 mils per coat (4 mils DFT) without sagging. Recommended for priming or coating concrete, wood or masonry. Available in a standard semi-gloss with a wide selection of 11 color options.
PRIMER: None required
TOPCOAT: Optional – Many products are suitable as topcoats including multiple coats of this product. For added chemical resistance, color stability or UV stability, topcoat with a suitable aliphatic urethane.

MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degree F. Keep from freezing.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface preparation will vary according to the type of complete system to be applied. For a one or two coat thin build system on vertical surfaces, we recommend mechanical scarification until suitable profile is achieved. All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the surface. A test should be made to determine that the concrete has an appropriate vapor barrier if below grade. This can be done by placing a 4’x4′ plastic sheet on the surface and taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the surface is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate does not show signs of eventual hydrostatic pressure problems that may later cause disbonding. However, this product can be applied to a damp surface.

PRODUCT MIXING: This product comes pre-packaged by weight. Kits should be mixed in their entirety. If partial kits are to be used, refer to the front of this technical data for proper weight mix ratios. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. This product is an emulsion product and should be mixed well before using. Improper mixing may result in product failure.

PRODUCT APPLICATION: The mixed material can be applied by brush or 1/4″ or 3/8″ nap lint free epoxy professional grade roller. 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. When the end of the pot life has been reached, you will find that the material becomes hard to apply and will actually tend to roll back up onto the roller. Do not try to continue application when the coating has reached this step.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING: If you opt to recoat or topcoat this product, you must first be sure that all of the solvents and water have evaporated from the coating during the curing process. The information on the front side are reliable guidelines to follow. However, it is best to test the coating before recoating or topcoating. This can be done by pressing on the coating with your thumb to verify that no fingerprint impression is left. If no impression is created, then the recoat or topcoat can be started. Always remember that colder temperatures will require more cure time for the product before recoating or topcoating can commence. Before recoating or topcoating, check the coating to insure no epoxy blushes were developed (a whitish, greasy film or deglossing). If a blush is present, it must be removed prior to topcoating or recoating. Many epoxy overlays and coatings as well as urethanes are compatible for use as a topcoat for this product as well as multiple coats of this product.

CLEANUP: Use PM solvent

SURFACE CLEANING: Caution! Some cleaners may affect the color of the floor installed. Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.

RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the surface to light duty and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure). It is best to let the surface 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:

  • Color or gloss may be affected by humidity, low temperatures, chemical exposure or sodium vapor lighting.
  • Product will yellow in the presence of UV light
  • For best results use a 1/4” or 3/8” 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
  • Product color will vary from batch to batch. Use only product from the same batch for an entire job.
  • Improper mixing or too thick of an application may result in product failure
  • Light or bright colors (white, safety colors etc.) may require multiple coats or a topcoat to achieve a satisfactory hide, depending on the substrate.
  • Physical properties listed on this technical data sheet are typical values and not specifications.
