ReflectASeal 400

Description:
REFLECTASEAL-400 is a high-solids polyamide-epoxy resin. The formulation includes a long pot life as well as flexible properties, which allows it to withstand abrasive conditions and have a high impact resistance. REFLECTASEAL-400 is a decorative and protective epoxy coating developed for metals of all types.

Application Areas:
REFLECTASEAL-400 is a self priming protective coating for metal: walls, tanks, pipes, floors, stairs, decks, equipment, and much more. REFLECTASEAL-400 can be used where dampness may prevent the use of other coatings. REFLECTASEAL-400 is used in commercial and industrial surroundings.

Resistance:
REFLECTASEAL-400 has excellent resistance to various solvents, hydrocarbons, acids, alkalis, saltwater, and freshwater.

 

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.
Metal must be free of mill scale, rust, paint, oil, grease, oxides, etc. An abrasive type of preparation is recommended to produce a profile for the REFLECTASEAL-400 to adhere to.

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 281-228-6400.

Mixing:
The mixing of parts A & B is very important! REFLECTASEAL-400 has a mixing ratio of 3 parts “B” to 1 part “A”. Agitate each part separately before combining the two. 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. Xylene should only be added after the activation is complete. For general purposes, no more than 1 pint per gallon of solvent should be added to the mixture.

Application:
Brush, 3/8″ nap roller cover, or airless spray equipment may be used to apply REFLECTASEAL-400. Surface configuration, weather, or area surroundings will dictate application method.

DRY FILM APPLICATIONS
To get dry film of: Apply Sq. Ft./gal.
6.5 mils 200 sq ft
13 mils 100 sq ft

DO NOT apply product heavier than 200-sq. ft. per gallon per coat (8 wet mil.). For a heavier dry film, apply necessary number of coats. Use of thinner increases possibility of sag and reduces dry film thickness. REFLECTASEAL-400 may be applied to damp surfaces but it is best to have a dry surface if possible.

Allow REFLECTASEAL-400 to become tack-free before applying additional coats or approximately 6 hrs. Caution! Without the use of aggregate in REFLECTASEAL-400, the surface will be slippery when wet!

General:
REFLECTASEAL-400 should be applied in well-ventilated areas. Surfaces should be free of foreign matter. DO NOT apply product near an open flame.

Clean Up:
Application equipment should be cleaned immediately with Lacquer Thinner or Xylene. Use Apple Cider Vinegar to clean hands and skin. Do not allow REFLECTASEAL-400 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:
Pot Life: 4 hrs @ 80ºF
Drying Time: 6 hrs @ 80ºF
Total Cure: 36 hrs @ 80ºF
