Product Description

Tuffcote epoxy is an environmentally friendly, water-based epoxy . Chemical resistant finish coat on steel and concrete surface. Almost odourless during application and curing. Resistant to fresh salt water, oils and chemicals when fully cured.

Application Description

Cleaning of equipment
For clean up use potable water.
Substrates
Suitable for cement plaster, concrete and metal surfaces.
Precautions
Ensure that surfaces are sound and free from dust, dirt, grease and oil. Surfaces must be thoroughly dry – no more than 12% moisture content.
Do not apply during cold (below 10°C) or wet weather.
Do not apply directly to bare metal surfaces.
Recommended for interior surfaces only.
Cure is slow at low temperatures; below 15°C it takes some days to reach handling and recoating hardness.
High temperatures will shorten pot life and drying times, while low temperatures and high relative humidity will lengthen drying time. The relative humidity must be below 90% during application.
Equipment and brushes must be cleaned immediately with tap water.
Only suitable for interior use – the film tends to yellow and chalk on exterior exposure.
Not suitable for direct application to powdery or friable surfaces whether previously painted or not.
Application
Tuffcote is packaged in two components in the proper proportions which must be mixed together before use.
Stir the upper container thoroughly, then add to the Curing Agent in the lower container and mix until uniform.
Do not mix more material than will be used within 1 hour.
N.B. The end of the pot life will not be shown by a viscosity increase (gelation). Material must be used within 1 hour.
Airless Spray: Apply direct as supplied, using a 0,533 mm or larger tip. If necessary, thin up to 15%.
Brush: Ready for use when mixed. Thin 5% by volume with tap water on hot days.
Roller: Ready for use when mixed. Lambwool or mohair types are preferred.
Coats Required
Apply three finishing coats to new surfaces to achieve a closed film and solid colour.
