Westcoat EC-102 Clear 80% Solids Polyaspartic Floor Coating
EC-102 is Westcoat’s fast-drying, high-performance, and polyaspartic topcoat. Designed to combat tire staining and plasticizer migration, EC-102 is a highly-competitive topcoat in the oversaturated polyaspartic marketplace. It far surpassed the competition in comparison testing due to its fast-drying, easy to apply, and chemical resistant formula.
Businesses and facilities that risk revenue loss from long down-times will benefit the most from its quick-drying and easy application process. EC-102 can withstand high UV exposure, so it can be used in both interior and exterior locations. EC-102 is specified as the finish coat in moderate chemical environments or in moderate traffic areas. It can be applied over a variety of Westcoat epoxies, such as EC-12 and EC-34 and can also be applied over TC-60 Color Chips and TC-65 Quartz Sand.
EC-102 can be used on industrial floors, garage floors, decorative floors, restaurant floors, food processing facilities, automotive service areas, airplane hangars, commercial pool decks, or anywhere that a medium-build and high-sheen is desired. Yet, it is ideal for garage and tire service areas, as it designed to combat tire staining.
EC-102 is a two component, 80% solids, polyaspartic topcoat that provides a non-yellowing, high gloss, fast-drying, medium-build finish with outstanding wear resistance. It should only be applied where high-odor & flammable materials are permitted. EC-102 is both USDA and FDA compliant, has low VOC content, is medium viscosity, and is chemically resistant.
EC-102 may be applied over Westcoat epoxies, such as EC-12 or EC-34 after the surface is dry to the touch, but no later than 24 hours (@ 72°F). If delay occurs and recoating exceeds 24 hours, it is recommended that the surface be lightly sanded and wiped with denatured alchol before applying EC-102. A test area should be performed to verify adhesion when recoating. For additional information on preparation, please refer to the desired System Specification Sheet for further information regarding Surface Preparation. Surface should be prepared per industry standard.
Premix each component separately. In a clean bucket, mix 1 part A with 1 part B, by voluem of EC-102. Mix thoroughly with a low speed (400-600 rpm) drill motor for 2-3 minutes. Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the container during mixing. After mixing has been completed, promptly remove material from container.
EC-102 may be thinned with up to 50% CA-23 ThinCoat - Medium Solvent, by volume, when used as a sealer. Typically 5-10% thinning is adequate when applying as a topcoat. If thinned, it must be applied thinly enough to allow solvent to escape. Do not allow material to puddle. Thinning will increase working time.
Immediately after mixing, pour activated product on the substrate. Squeegee and back roll the material at a rate of 215-640 square feet per gallon. DO NOT OVER ROLL. For best results, apply multiple thin coats. Recommended dry film thickness (DFT) for garages, aircraft hangars and floors with wheel traffic is 2-6 mils.
Re-coat if needed, within 24 hours of application to insure adhesion. If a delay occurs, it is recommended that the surface be lightly sanded and wiped with denatured alcohol just before reapplication. A test area should be performed prior to all re-coats.
You may re-coat as soon as the surface is dry to the touch (approx. 3 to 5 hours @ 72°F), but no later than 24 hours. Light foot traffic may be permitted in 8 hours, normal traffic in 24 hours and vehicle traffic in 72 hours. All times are based on average temperature of 72°F and 50% humidity. Dry times may increase slightly when solvent is added.
Uncured material can be removed with a solvent. Cured material can only be removed mechanically.
- This product is designed for professional use only.
- Be sure to measure and mix properly.
- Exceeding the maximum thickness per coat of < 6 dry mils may reduce the hardness of the EC-102 and may increase the chance of tire staining.
- Permitting tire traffic prior to the 72 hour cure, may lead to plasticizer migration or tire staining.
- When thinned, coverages will be extended and material should never be allowed to puddle.
- Material should be preconditioned for a minimum of 24 hours at 65°F to 75°F.
- Do not apply when ambient or substrate temperatures are below 50°F or above 85°F. Hot or cold weather will affect dry times.
- Be cautious of condensation, which may result in blushing or adhesion failure.
- High humidity will reduce the working time and dry time. Low humidity will increase dry time.
- EC-102 must be cured for a minimum of 48 hours before coming in contact with water.
- Skid resistant additives are available, such as CA-30 or CA-31.
- EC-102 should not be applied directly over EC-11 Water-Based Epoxy Primer.
- Do not allow Westcoat products to freeze.
- Product has odor.
- Product reaches full cure after 96 hours @ 72°F.
