Jet Epoxy is a quick set 100% solids self leveling toughened epoxy. It provides excellent adhesive characteristics while exhibiting good chemical, moisture and UV resistance. It can be used as a primer or as a final top-coat. It may be used in confined areas as it emits very low odor emissions. This material is used on metal, wood, fiberglass, concrete, masonry and other difficult to coat surfaces requiring a tough exterior coating. It may also be formulated with anti-corrosion additives to protect ferrous metals from oxidation.
Jet Epoxy may be applied using pressure pot or air-less spray, roll-on or brush-on. This 2K epoxy system finishes glossy smooth when fully cured. This material is to be used directly on clean dry surfaces and becomes tack free within 1 hour depending on ambient humidity and temperature. It is an excellent primer backbone for all SuperSkinSystems’ super-polymers and general topcoats. It retains a wide functional temperature range while yielding good flexibility from 25F to 150F. Full cure is achieved under normal drying conditions in 24 hours.
Jet Epoxy is available in 3 primary formulations:
289: clear and fast
351: low temp fast cure
319: clear slow top coat

Technical Application Data
Application substrates must be dry and clean from contaminates; free of loose rust, paint, moisture, dirt, oils, etc. This material is to be applied within 40°F to 100°F. Mix 1A hardener:2B resin throughly with a hand drill jiffy mixer. Coating may be applied by roller, brush, air-less or pressure-pot sprayer. Spraying may require up to 10% solvent such as aromatic 100 or xylene. Working time at 75°F is 25 min unless altered by solvent dilution, ambient temperatures and substrate temperature. Recommended max wet per coat application film thickness is 16 mils. Coverage at 16 mils is 100 sq. ft./ mixed gal. If application surface ehibits extensive corrosion, normal forms of media blasting is recommended to create a secure surface preparation.

Substrate Surface Preparation
Preparation of substrate surface prior to the application of a SuperSkinSystem is extremely important to achieve proper system bonding.
Concrete must be fully cured and should be prepared with a sandblasting, diamond grinding or machine sanding depending on the severity of the concrete surface condition. Similar proper preparation must be performed for metals. Primers also require this proper preparation. Always power clean using mild detergent prior to sanding, etc. Call TechSupport Group for assistance with selecting SSS application system. Also read the Application Page on this website. If patching concrete, use mineral filled fast-set Acrylic Modified Epoxy applied by trowel. For expansion joints, use Joist Seal applied by hand cartridge dispensing gun. It is always best to perform a test within a small section of the application area prior to full scale engagement.
