Epoxy and Polyurea Kits
APF Polyurethane 501
Polyurethane 501 is a high solids, two component, water-based aliphatic polyurethane. This unique material provides performance properties equal to conventional solvent-based catalyzed urethanes without the associated health and environmental problems. It offers substantial performance improvements over first generation catalyzed water-based polyurethanes, including higher film build capabilities, improved chemical resistance and resistance to hot tire staining.
Polyurethane 501 gives hard, durable coatings that feature good gloss, easy cleanability and superior abrasion resistance. Resistance to yellowing from U.V. light is excellent. For exterior desert applications, a special U.V. absorber package can be incorporated to ensure long-term chalk resistance and gloss retention.
Polyurethane 501 has been developed as a high performance finish coat for various seamless flooring,coating, and architectural concrete applications where odor cannot be tolerated. It is the ideal top coat for areas that require maximum gloss retention, ease of cleaning, and resistance to heavy foot traffic. Typical areas of application would include clean rooms, hospitals, concrete counter tops and high traffic retail areas. Polyurethane 501 is also suitable for aircraft hangars, automotive repair facilities and garage floors.
APF Polyurethane 250
Polyurethane 250 is a two component, low viscosity acrylic urethane. It is used as a primer/sealer over a variety of surfaces. The use of special solvents and adhesion promoters gives this material excellent penetration and adhesion to minimally profiled concrete. Polyurethane 250 is U.V. stable for use in exterior applications, cures rapidly and is easily recoated with both solvent-based and water-based polyurethanes. When used as a finish coat, this material gives a hard, high gloss surface that offers excellent stain resistance and easy cleanability. Compared to solvent-based acrylic sealers, Polyurethane 250 offers substantial improvements in initial gloss, gloss retention and overall performance. Polyurethane 250 is available in a satin finish if a lower gloss is desired.
Polyurethane 250 has been designed for use over concrete, acid stained surfaces, and various types of architectural concrete. Its performance as a paver sealer is unexcelled. It is especially suitable over acid stained concrete because it is unaffected by pH drifts that can affect the adhesion of other types of primers. When used over acid stains or integrally colored concrete, it gives color enhancement similar to solvent acrylic sealers. Polyurethane 250 can also be used as a tie coat over difficult to adhere to surfaces such as polyester urethane. When used as a finish coat in vehicle areas, it resists tire tracking and provides easy soil release. Although abrasion resistance to heavy foot traffic far exceeds single component materials, the best performance in these areas is achieved with polyester urethanes such as Polyurethane 100, Polyurethane 100 VOC or Polyurethane 501.
APF Polyurethane 100
Polyurethane 100 is a two component, high solids aliphatic polyurethane. This product offers a remarkable combination of performance properties not found in other polymer coatings. Polyurethane 100 produces protective films which are hard, flexible and very impact resistant. These coatings feature high abrasion and scratch resistance, exterior durability, easy soil release and excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals. For exterior applications, a U.V. stabilizer package is incorporated to insure long term chalk resistance and gloss retention. A special accelerator is available when rapid project turnaround is required.
Polyurethane 100 has been designed as a high performance top coat in various protective coating and seamless flooring applications. It provides maximum cleanability and stain resistance when used as a finish coat in color chip flooring or epoxy-quartz flooring. This coating is ideally suited for clean-room floors, automotive repair facilities, aircraft hangars and other high wear areas requiring resistance to fuels and chemicals. When used as a finish coat in wall coating systems, anti-graffiti properties are greatly enhanced.
APF Epoxy 550
Epoxy 550 is a high solid material designed as a base coat for color chip flooring. Epoxy 550 is formulated with an unusually high pigment loading for excellent substrate hide in a one coat application. This allows the contractor to omit the normally used primer and saves a trip to the jobsite. Epoxy 550 adheres tenaciously to damp or dry concrete and gives the contractor ample open time for broadcasting the color chips.
APF Epoxy 400
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 curing, (down to 40°F), or accelerated room temperature curing is required. A special hardener is available when adhesion to damp concrete is required.
The versatility of Epoxy 400 makes it ideal as a primer, finish coat or aggregate binder in a wide variety of flooring applications. This includes manufacturing facilities, warehouses, correctional facilities, loading docks and other areas requiring high performance flooring. Epoxy 400 is not recommended for food processing areas, commercial kitchens, wineries or other areas that receive constant corrosive exposure.
APF Epoxy 200
Epoxy 200 is a two component water-based epoxy with excellent adhesion and rapid cure times. Its unique chemistry provides short re-coat times and good low temperature curing. This material has little odor, applies easily and adheres to damp concrete. Epoxy 200 was designed for use as a fast curing primer under epoxy, acrylic, polyurethane and polyurea materials. It may also be used as a base coat in fast turnaround color chip systems. Re-coat times range from 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on film thickness, curing conditions and the type of top coat used. Epoxy 200 is ideally suited as a primer over properly neutralized interior acid stains where odor cannot be tolerated. Epoxy 200 primer with Polyurethane 100 or Polyurethane 501 top coats may be accomplished in one trip to the job site. Fewer trips to the job site result in reduction of labor costs.
APF Epoxy 100
Epoxy 100 is a two component water-based epoxy system that features ease of application, very low odor and excellent overall coating performance. This material cures blush free over a wide range of temperatures and adheres tenaciously to a variety of substrates including damp or wet concrete. Epoxy 100 is used as a general purpose coating for concrete floors and as a primer under epoxy, polyurethane and acrylic materials. The raw material package has a 30 year history of success as a concrete coating. Epoxy 100 is recommended for coating warehouse and factory floors, coating automotive repair facilities, residential garage floors and for many other commercial and industrial maintenance applications. Because of its ease of application, Epoxy 100 is an excellent choice for do-it-yourself floor coating projects.
