ReflectASeal 200

Description:
REFLECTASEAL-200 is a high-solids polyamide-epoxy resin. The formulation includes a long pot life as well as flexible properties, which allows it to withstand extreme abrasive conditions. REFLECTASEAL-200 is a decorative and protective epoxy coating especially developed to protect and seal concrete floors. REFLECTASEAL-200 is best suited for, but not limited to, horizontal surfaces.

Application Areas:
REFLECTASEAL-200 is a protective coating for floors, stairs, tanks, decks, equipment, and much more. REFLECTASEAL-200 can be used where moist areas may prevent the use of other coatings.
REFLECTASEAL -200 is used in commercial, industrial, and residential surroundings.
REFLECTASEAL -200 is suitable for the following applications: pharmaceutical & biotech facilities, laboratories, wineries, animal facilities & vivariums, cafeterias, break rooms & common areas, locker rooms and restrooms.

Resistance:
REFLECTASEAL-200 has excellent resistance to various solvents, hydrocarbons, acids and alkalis, particularly food acids

Preparation:
To begin, the surface should be etched to provide a profile or “tooth” for optimal adhesion. Surfaces must be cleaned free of grease, oil, wax, mastic compounds, paint, waterproofing compounds, form release materials, and all other contaminants prior to application.
New concrete and masonry should not be coated for at least 28 days to permit the concrete or mortar to cure and dry out. Concrete should be visually inspected and tested for moisture content and gassing before coating. If gassing is detected, REFLECTASEAL-Primer should then be applied before coating.

Note: See REFLECTASEAL-Primers that are suitable for specific applications

REFLECTASEAL-200 will not develop optimum adhesion to concrete unless Latinate and other loosely bound materials are first removed from the surface. Latent must be removed by abrading. Shot blasting, scarifying, grinding, sand-blasting or other abrasive mechanical means are recommended. Acid etching is an option but not recommended because of environmental concerns or accidental damage to non-target areas.
For aged concrete, remove old coatings and/or other materials previously applied. Abrasive or mechanical means are recommended. Infiltration of oil, grease, gas, etc. into the concrete will retard adhesion. Contaminated concrete must be sufficiently removed or thoroughly cleaned with a cleaning agent appropriate for the removal of petroleum-based products. After the surface cleansing, continue on with directions for the new concrete application.

The preparation procedures above are general guidelines. Detailed preparation methods are available through SSPC at www.sspc.org or 412-281-2331 or NACE at www.nace.org or 281-228-6200.

Mixing:
The mixing of parts A & B is very important! REFLECTASEAL-200 has a mixing ratio of 3 parts “B” to 1 part “A”. Use a power mixer to thoroughly combine both parts. Mix for a minimum of 5 minutes. Allow idle activation time for a minimum of 15 minutes.

 

Thinning:
Thinning is typically not needed. If thinning is required Xylene should only be added after the mixing process is complete and product has sat idle. For general purposes, no more than 1.5 quart per 4 gallons of solvent should be added to the mixture.

 

Application:
Brush, 3/8” nap roller cover, squeegee, or airless spray equipment may be used to apply REFLECTASEAL-200. Surface configuration, weather, or area surroundings will dictate application method.

DRY FILM APPLICATIONS
To get dry film of: Apply Sq. Ft./gal.
4 mils 300 sq. ft.
8 mils 150 sq. ft.
12 mils 100 sq. ft.

DONOT apply the product heavier than 100-sq. ft. per gallon per coat. For a heavier dry film, apply necessary number of coats.
Use of thinner increases possibility of sag and reduces dry film thickness. REFLECTASEAL-200 may be applied to damp surfaces but it is best to have a dry surface if possible.
Allow REFLECTASEAL-200 to become tack-free before applying additional coats or approximately 6 hrs. Caution! Without the use of aggregate in REFLECTASEAL-200, the surface will be slippery when wet!

General:
REFLECTASEAL-200 should be applied in well-ventilated areas. Surfaces should be free of foreign matter. DO NOT apply near an open flame.

 

Clean Up:
Application equipment should be cleaned immediately with Lacquer Thinner. Use Apple Cider Vinegar to clean hands and skin. Do not allow REFLECTASEAL-200 to remain on tools! Once it sets and is cured, it is difficult to remove.

Flammability: Flammable during application. Does not support combustion when cured.

 

Curing Time:
