Westcoat EC-32 High Build Clear Epoxy 1-1/2 Gallon Kit


About

Westcoat EC-32 High Build Clear Epoxy Topcoat is a two-component, 100% solids, high-build, high viscosity, cyclo-aliphatic, chemical resistant epoxy. This highly versatile epoxy coating has superior clarity. It can be applied directly to the concrete without a special primer.

Specs

  • Coverages:
    • As a primer: ~300-500 ft2 / US gal.
    • As a coating: ~100-300 ft2 / US gal.
    • As a sealer: ~300-500 ft2 / US gal.
    • As a mortar: ~ 30-60 ft2 / US gal.
  • 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.


    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.
    • In a clean bucket, mix 2 parts A with 1 part B (by volume) of EC-32.
    • 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-32 can be thinned with up to 100% (equal parts) CA-23 or acetone, by volume.
    • If thinned, it must be applied thinly enough to allow solvent to escape (minimum of 300 square feet per gallon).
    • As a primer: EC-32 may be thinned with up to 100% CA-23 or acetone.
    • As a coating: EC-32 may be thinned with 10-20% CA-23 or acetone.
    • As a mortar: thinning is not recommended.


    Coverage

    • Coverage will vary depending on the condition of surface and desired thickness.
    • As a coating: 100-300 square feet per gallon.
    • As a sealer: 300-500 square feet per gallon.
    • As a mortar: 30-60 square feet per gallon.


    Applying product

    • As a primer:
      • Spray or squeegee and backroll thinned EC-32 onto the surface.
      • Primer coat should be applied evenly and worked into the surface to help seal and avoid pinholes.
      • When thinned, apply EC-32 at a maximum of 5 mils.
      • Do not allow material to puddle.
    • As a coating:
      • Apply EC-32 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 inch 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 resistant desired, 1 to 2 coats may be applied.
    • As a sealer:
      • EC-32 may be sprayed, brushed, or rolled.
      • If rolled, neatly cut-in all edges with a brush and roll the center using a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch nap, good quality, roller cover.
      • Be sure to spread evenly in a "V" pattern rolling in both directions.
      • Roll product as thin as possible.
      • If spraying, use a pump type or airless sprayer after thinning and be sure to spray evenly.
    • For an epoxy mortar:
      • To create the mortar mix, combine mixed EC-32 with aggregate, at a rate of 50-100 pounds per gallon, depending on aggregate and desired psi.
      • Within 24 hours of primer, spread the prepared mortar mix evenly with a trowel.
      • Read Epoxy Mortar or Epoxy Mortar Quartz System Specification Sheet for details.


    Dry time

    • You may re-coat as soon as the surface is dry to touch or in about 8-10 hours, but no later than 24 hours.
    • Light foot traffic may be permitted in 24 hours, heavy foot traffic in 48 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 and 90°F. Hot or cold weather will affect dry times.
    • Epoxy must be cured for minimum of 24 hours before coming 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 to 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.
