SS Aliphatic 60% Urethane is a two component aliphatic polyurethane coating with excellent abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, hot tire resistance and UV Stability. SS Aliphatic 60% Urethane is designed as a high performance topcoat for concrete flooring systems, especially when combined with SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy. Tint with SS Specialties Color Dispersion, if desired.
BENEFITS AND FEATURES
*Excellent long term wear capabilities.
*Excellent chemical resistance.
*Excellent resistance to stain.
SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy is designed for a variety of seamless high build concrete flooring applications. It is an excellent coating for auto service centers, warehouses, computer rooms, laboratories, aircraft hangars, cafeterias, and other areas where high performance, abrasion resistance and chemical resistance are required. The SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy used a the primer and the SS Aliphatic 60% Urethane combination as the top coat is a very high quality and affordable commercial/industrial floor coating system. This combination is also an excellent coating choice for interior decorative exposed to high foot traffic conditions.
Surface preparation: A fine to medium shot blasting or the use of a diamond grinding machine to obtain a surface profile of a CSP-3 to a CSP-5 is suggested for ultimate adhesion. A test should be made to determine that the concrete is dry; this can be done by placing a 4 x 4 plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate should be ready to coat. More advanced moisture testing kits should be used on floors with suspected moisture problems. SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy is designed to be applied only to primed surfaces within the recommended recoat window of the primer or previously sealed surfaces that have sufficient adhesion to the substrate. Apply coating to a clean surface that is completely dry and free of oil, dirt, grime, wax, detergent or any incompatible paint or coating. If applying to an existing fully cured and fully adhered coating, the surface must be cleaned and sanded with 80—100 grit sandpaper. If multiple coats of SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy are required apply the second coat as close as possible to the suggested recoat time (see technical information section on this data sheet). Do not exceed 24 hours to recoat or a light sanding may be needed for adequate adhesion between coats. PRIMING: Prime the surface with SS Water Based 40 Epoxy. Refer to the SS Water Based 40 Epoxy technical data sheets for application information. Mixing: Pour a full pre-packaged kit of 2 parts of Part A to 1 part of Part B together and mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and homogenous. Avoid whipping air into the coating. Improper mixing may result in product failure. Application: Apply the mixed material with a brush, roller, trowel, notched squeegee or gauge rake and then backroll evenly to maintain the desired thickness within the usable pot life time frame, as well as the recommended temperature and relative humidity guidelines listed in the Technical Information section. If concrete conditions or aggressive mixing causes air entrapment, then an air release roller tool should be used prior to the coating tacking off to remove the air entrapped in the coating. If the material becomes thick while applying and sticking to the application tools, stop applying and discard the mixed material. At this point it has reached the end of the usable pot life. While applying keep a wet edge to prevent streaking. It is recommended to work in sections usually using control joints as dividers to ensure proper application results. Do not allow to Puddle! If re-coating after 24 hours a light sanding using a fine sanding screen may be needed to ensure adequate inner coat adhesion.. Please note: Applying SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy outside of the suggested parameters may result in job failure. It is always recommended to test the product in a small, inconspicuous area (on the same concrete substrate) for desired results prior to application. Coverage rates may vary for all coatings and substrates depending on porosity, density, texture etc.
Use MEK. Dispose of containers in accordance with local and federal regulations.
Dried, cured epoxy may be removed by chemical means including sanding, shot blasting, etc.
SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy has a shelf life up to one year (12 months) in it’s original, sealed, unopened container.
• All new concrete must be cured for at least 28 days prior to application. Coverage rates depend upon many conditions including application method, surface porosity, applicator, etc.
• Be aware that this product may be slippery when wet. Anti Slip additives may be needed to reduce surface slip hazards.
• SS Aliphatic 100% Epoxy may darken the surface of many new and existing concrete substrates. Test prior to use.
• Physical properties listed on this technical data sheet are typical values not specifications.
• If applying over an existing coating, proper adhesion and compatibility tests are essential. In this application the substrate preparation, application, performance and all other liabilities are strictly the end users responsibility. SS Specialties offers no guaranty, warranty or other claims to the success or results of the job in this circumstance.
