A low viscosity, high strength resin used as a binder and top coat in aggregate-filled flooring, decorative stone systems and as a high build coating.
APF Epoxy 400 Clear Floor Coating: Features and Usage
Epoxy 400 is a low viscosity, 100% solids resin system used in a variety of flooring applications including high build coatings, aggregate-filled flooring and decorative epoxy pebble applications. This material cures blush-free and provides an outstanding balance of physical strength, flexibility and chemical resistance. Epoxy 400 has excellent clarity for use over color quartz aggregate and decorative architectural concrete. The pigmented material features high pigment loading for good substrate hide and color consistency when roller applied.
Epoxy 400 has considerably lower viscosity than most competitive products providing improved handling at cooler temperatures and exceptional troweling characteristics. The lower viscosity allows for the addition of fine silica fillers for easy application of “slurry” type floors. A fast cure hardener is available when cold weather cure down to 40°F or accelerated room temperature cure is required. A special hardener is available when adhesion to damp concrete is needed.
The versatility of Epoxy 400 makes it ideal as a primer, finish coat or aggregate binder in a wide variety of flooring applications including manufacturing facilities, warehouses, correctional facilities, loading docks and other areas requiring high performance flooring. Epoxy 400 UVR is fortified with a UV absorber package and designed for exterior use as a re-glaze material over decorative epoxy pebble systems. Epoxy 400 is not recommended for food processing areas, commercial kitchens, wineries or other areas that receive constant corrosive exposure. Epoxy 600 or 900 should be selected for these applications.
Modified Bisphenol A epoxy resin crosslinked with aliphatic and cycloaliphatic polyamines.
- Must be applied to a clean, dry surface.
- Exterior pigmented applications will show chalking.
- Should be applied with aggregate fillers in flooring applications where impact or mechanical abuse is anticipated.
