Westcoat EC-34 100% Solids Pigmented Epoxy Topcoat 1-1/2 Gallon Kit


About

Westcoat EC-34 Epoxy Topcoat is a two-component, 100% solids, medium viscosity, low odor, high-build, chemical resistant epoxy.

Specs

  • Coverages:
    • ~300-500 ft2 / US gal. (as a primer)
    • ~100-300 ft2 / US gal. (as a coating)
  • VOC Content: 0 g/l
  • Mix Ratio: 2:1 (by volume)

    Instructions

    Inspection

    • The surface must be structurally sound, clean, dry, and free of grease, paint, oil, dust, curing agents, laitance or any foreign material that will prevent proper adhesion.
    • The concrete should be at least 2,500 PSI and porous or rough enough to allow the product to soak in.
    • A minimum of 28 days curing time is required on all concrete.
    • Prior to starting work, test existing concrete slab for efflorescence, moisture and hydrostatic pressure.


    Preparation

    • Pre-cut and clean all cracks and joints with a concrete diamond blade to at least 1/4 x 1/4 inch.
    • Prepare concrete to a profile equal to CSP 3-4 as specified by ICRI.
    • Methods may vary according to the condition and hardness of the concrete.
    • Other factors include the forecasted use of the surface and the environment in which it is to be installed.
    • When preparing the surface use caution when shot blasting, scarifying too aggressively, leaving grind marks or grinding too smooth.
    • Please refer to desired System Specification Sheet for more information on preparation.


    Moisture

    • All concrete should be tested for moisture before applying a seamless coating.
    • If moisture emissions exceed 5 lbs/1000 square feet/24 hours (ASTM F1869) or if the relative humidity (RH) exceeds 75% (ASTM F2170), contact the manufacturer before application.


    Mixing

    • Premix each component separately.
    • For color consistency, box all part A's.
    • In a clean bucket, mix 2 parts A with 1 part B (by volume) of EC-34.
    • Mix thoroughly with a low speed (400-600 rpm) drill motor for 3-4 minutes.
    • Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the container during mixing.
    • After mixing is completed, remove material from container within 5 minutes, as epoxy will begin to generate heat.
    • Spread immediately onto the floor. As product is spread out, you will have longer working time (10-15 minutes at 70°F).


    Thinning

    • EC-34 can be thinned with up to 10-20% CA-23 or acetone, by volume.
    • If thinned, it must be applied thinly enough to allow solvent to escape (minimum 300 square feet per gallon).
    • As a primer: EC-34 may be thinned with up to 100% CA-23 or acetone.
    • As a coating: EC-34 may be thinned with 10-20% CA-23 or acetone.


    Coverage

    • Coverage will vary depending on condition of surface and desired thickness.
    • As a primer: 300-500 square feet per gallon.
    • As a coating: 100-300 square feet per gallon.


    Applying Product

    • As a primer:
      • Spray or squeegee and backroll thinned EC-34 onto the surface.
      • Primer coat should be applied evenly and worked into the surface to help seal and avoid pinholes.
      • When thinned, apply EC-34 at a maximum of 5 mils.
      • Do not allow material to puddle.
    • As a coating:
      • Apply EC-34 within 24 hours after the primer coat.
      • Immediately after mixing, spread a strip of material onto the surface along the edges where it will be "cut in" using a brush.
      • Pour the remaining material near the "cut in" area and spread evenly using a trowel or squeegee and back roll using a 1/4" to 3/8" nap, non-shedding roller.
      • A notched trowel or squeegee will help regulate the thickness and a porcupine roller will help to release trapped air and minimize bubbles.
      • Depending on the look, thickness, chemical, and abrasion resistance desired, 1 to 2 coats may be applied.
      • Please refer to desired System Specification Sheet for more information on applying the product.


    Dry Time

    • You may re-coat as soon as the surface is dry to touch or in about 9-10 hours.
    • Light foot traffic may be permitted in 12 hours, normal traffic in 24 hours and vehicle traffic in 3 days.
    • All times are based on average temperature of 70°F and 50% humidity.
    • Cooler temperatures will increase drying time.


    Clean Up

    • Uncured material should be removed with an environmentally-safe solvent.
    • Cured material should be removed mechanically.


    Limitations

    • This product is designed for professional use only.
    • Be sure to measure and mix properly. Be aware of the pot life of mixed epoxy.
    • Do not apply when temperatures are below 50°F or above 90°F. Hot or cold weather will affect dry times.
    • Epoxy must be cured for a minimum of 24 hours before coming in contact with water.
    • Skid resistant additives are available, such as CA-30 or CA-31.
    • For interior use only unless protected by a UV resistant coating.
    • Solvents may be required in cooler weather or lower viscosity and increase coverage of 100% solids.
    • Please check with local laws governing the use of solvents.
    • Do not allow Westcoat products to freeze.
