Aqua Tuff Waterborne Epoxy Slip Resistant Coating - 78000 Series
Aqua Tuff Waterborne Epoxy
Floor Coating 78000 Series

A waterborne two-component, epoxy system, available clear and colors, that is formulated to coat interior concrete with a chemical and abrasion resistant tough film that is low in odor and easy to apply and clean up. These high gloss finishes are available in a variety of ready-mix colors and clear, that provide superior resistance to abrasion, foot traffic, forklifts, marring, scuffing, and chemicals including oil, grease, hydraulic fluid, many solvents and moderate acids and alkalis. Ideal for use in warehouses, parking decks, factories, aircraft hangars, service stations, and other applications where a heavy-duty coating is required.

Recommended Uses
This coating can be applied on concrete floors in facilities such as hospitals, schools, nursing homes, commercial buildings or industrial plants, where the presence of solvent odors and flammability would normally prohibit the application of a coating and sealer. Its versatility and ease of application make it usable on almost any concrete or other hard surface. Also suitable on wood, steel & other surfaces.

  • Dries to high gloss and stays glossy.
  • Has minimal odor.
  • Low VOC´s.
  • Cuts installation time - no need to wait for concrete to completely dry. Can be applied to new concrete aged a minimum of two weeks.
  • Simple to use: Components are pre-measured, just mix and apply.
  • Reduces floor prep costs: Can be applied with minimum preparation and minimum cleaning.
  • Cleans up with soap and water.
  • Provides a tough, coating that protects against dust, dirt, water, acid and alkali cleaners, alcohol, Skydrol, even brake fluid.
Dry Time
Open to light traffic within 12 - 24 hours.
Full Cure after 5 - 7 days.
Recoat within 4 - 6 hours
Pot Life is 2 hours
NOTE: All dry/cure times are based on 75°F at 50% humidity. Individual dry times may vary depending upon conditions. Not recommended for application where indoor relative humidity is over 80%. FOR BEST RESULTS: Apply two thin coats, rather than one thick one.

Surface Preparation
All surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry and free from dirt, grease, oil, chalk, efflorescence, curing and sealing compounds, soap residue and any other foreign matter. New concrete surfaces should age at least 14 days before being coated. Old concrete that is unsound including flaking or spalling must be removed to a solid substrate. Make any needed repairs then clean the surface thoroughly using On Guard or our Degreaser No. 770. Use a broom or brush to get into valleys and grooves. Rinse completely with clean water and allow to dry. Concrete that is smooth troweled or suspected of treatment with chemical "de-icers" should be etched with dilute muriatic acid and rinsed thoroughly with clean water to promote bonding. Allow surface to dry before applying coating. This product may be applied after cleaning while the surface is still damp to the touch, but not wet. NOTE: Do not apply if floor temperature is below 50°F or over 90°F.

Application Directions
1. Mix all of Part B (Resin) into Part A (Pigmented Hardener) using an electric drill mounted with a "Jiffy" type mixer.

2. Mix until a uniform color is obtained. (3 - 5 mins. at 1000 rpm). Avoid air entrapment. Let sit 2 - 3 mins. after stirring to dissipate air bubbles.

3. Pot life after mixing is 2 hours.

4. Apply mixed product in thin, even coats with a short nap 3/8" or no nap paint roller from a clean roller pan. DO NOT POUR THIS MATERIAL DIRECTLY ON THE FLOOR.

5. There is no need to work this finish into the surface since the superior penetrating qualities of the product will perform this function.

6. Discard roller cover when through. All remaining application equipment may be cleaned with soap and water before pot-life expires.

7. Discard all unused material after 2 hours. According to local state (province) or federal regulations.
