SureCrete Dura-Kote Pigmented WB Epoxy
SureCrete Dura-Kote Pigmented Water Based Epoxy is a 2 component 52% solids, low VOC floor coating system that is used in a wide variety of applications: durable pigmented coating for both new and old interior concrete floors, primer coat, and binder for Dura-Kote Flakes and Metallics. The high loading of Sure-Crete pigments achieve the preferred substrate hide and tint uniformity in 100's of colors. Dura-Kote Pigmented WB Epoxy generates the premier balance of strength, flexibility, and chemical resistance, all in a low odor, low VOC formulation.
Unlike nearly all epoxies, Dura-Kote Pigmented WB Epoxy has remarkable properties related to moisture:
>> Withstands high vapor transmission rate, up to 13 pounds per 1,000 ft² (5.4 kg per 100m²) in 24 >> Provides a non-permeable vapor barrier, even in basements.
>> Applies on fresh concrete as soon as three days after pouring and placing concrete.
SureCrete's Colored Water Based Concrete Epoxy for Floors tinting system can create products that are vastly different than conventional colored concrete sealers available on the market today. The tints used by SureCrete's colored water based concrete epoxy for floors tinting station are far more durable and UV resistant than typical pigmented concrete sealers. With these pigments, your finished colored water-based epoxy coating system will last much longer than a normal water-based epoxy sealer ever would, with the color staying much more vibrant over a long period of exposure. Not only are the tints more durable and UV-stable than typical colored concrete sealers, but the color range available is also quite a bit wider than those available on the market presently. Dura-Kote Colored Water Based Concrete Epoxy for Floors is available in more than 200 standard colors.
HOW DO YOU APPLY?
Water-Based epoxy coatings can be finicky to apply, but with these instructions, your floor will turn out beautifully:
1.) Any surface that is about to be sealed needs to be completely cured, clean and free of all contaminants, and fully profiled and etched. Moisture should also be limited as colored water-based epoxy systems are non-vapor-permeable sealers.
2.) Make sure that temperatures will remain between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity below 75% and there will be no precipitation in the applied areas for a 12 hour period following application.
3.) Setup a mixing area that's out of the way of your application area, and begin by mixing Part A for three minutes to make sure the pigments are properly dispersed.
4.) Pour in 1 part B to 4 parts A for a minimum of three minutes and pour out ALL material onto intended application surface.
5.) First coat can be applied using a squeegee or premium quality roller.
6.) Once the product has been rolled/squeegeed out evenly, it should be back-rolled to eliminate roller marks and achieve even color distribution.
7.) First coat may function as a stand-alone product depending on your desired application. However for a more scratch-resistant finished coating system, apply a finish coat utilizing a a polyurethane or polyaspartic clear coating.
8.) If applying a finishing top coat, and the first coat has been allowed to cure for more than 12 hours, first coat should be screened with a 100 grit sanding screen.
9.) While not required, we suggest the application of a Sacrificial Coat such as SureFinish to your floor to ensure its integrity over a long period without wearing down the original surface.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
CAN YOU MATCH A COLOR WITH SURECRETE'S COLORED WATER BASED CONCRETE EPOXY?
Yes! Just make sure to get a physical color chip to one of our distribution locations to match your colored water based concrete epoxy.
CAN DURA-KOTE WATER BASED EPOXY FBE USED AS A SINGLE-COAT SYSTEM?
While it certainly can be used as a single coat system, we usually suggest a finish coat be applied as well as a sacrificial coating to give better scratch and chemical resistance and ensure the overall system lasts as long as possible.
WILL THE EPOXY SELF-LEVEL AND FILL SMALL HOLES?
No, the solids content of colored water based concrete epoxy products are not high enough to enable an applicator to fill holes in your concrete substrate. Proper concrete patching and leveling materials should be utilized prior to sealer application.
CAN I DILUTE DURA-KOTE WATER BASED CONCRETE EPOXY?
Yes, it can be diluted up to 15% by volume with water.
