Silicone Epoxy is a high temperature epoxy with excellent chemical resistance. It provides superior resistance to water spotting, even under adverse conditions and is DOT noncorrosive. This material is used in industrial flooring, chemically resistant tank linings, chemical handling equipment, chemical storage vessels and marine environments. It is used on metal, wood, fiberglass, concrete, masonry and other difficult to coat surfaces requiring a tough chemical resistant coating. Silicone Epoxy is optically clear and has excellent UV Resistance. It has outstanding temperature resistance allowing it to be used up to 400°F.
Technical Application Data
Application substrates must be dry and clean from contaminates; free of loose rust, paint, moisture, dirt, oils, etc. Concrete must be fully cured and should be prepared with a sandblasting, diamond grinding or machine sanding depending on the severity of the surface condition. Similar proper preparation must be performed for metals. Primers are also recommended for proper preparation. Always power clean using mild detergent prior to sanding, etc. This material is to be applied within 50°F to 100°F. Mix 1A (Hardener) to 1B (Resin) thoroughly with a hand drill jiffy mixer. Coating may be applied using roller, brush or low pressure pot spray. Spraying may require up to 10% solvent such as aromatic 100 or xylene. Working time (gel time) at 75°F is 40 minutes 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. per mixed gallon. This material is to be used directly on clean dry contaminant-free surfaces and becomes tack free within 3 hour depending on ambient humidity and temperature. Full cure is achieved under normal drying humidity in 7 days at ambient temperature.
Read product labels and application instructions prior to use. Mix Silicone Epoxy Hardener (A-Side) and Resin (B-Side) at a ratio of 1A – 1B by volume. Mix with a variable speed drill utilizing a Jiffy Mixer. It is always recommended when using a colored resin, to mix the resin prior to mixing the two components. Mix resin thoroughly to suspend any settled pigment and attain a uniform color.
