ReflectASeal 425

Description:
ReflectASeal-425 is an 80 % solids epoxy resin polyamide coating formulated for continuous submersion underwater.

Application Areas:
ReflectASeal-425 is a self priming protective epoxy coating designed for adhering to almost any clean surface including, metals of all types, concrete, masonry, plaster, and other surfaces. ReflectASeal-425 is used in commercial and industrial surroundings.

Preparation:
Surfaces must be cleaned free of rust, mill scale, grease, oil, paint, algae, or any other film forming foreign material., Optimum performance and adhesion is obtained if the surface is dry and a profile is created.

The preparation procedures above are general guidelines. Consult ReflectASeal technicians for further details or special preparation procedures.  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.orgor 281-228-6400.

 

Mixing:
The mixing of parts A & B is very important!  ReflectASeal-425 has a mixing ratio of 1 part “B” to

1 part “A”.  Agitate each part separately before combining the two.  Pour a measured amount of Part B into a clean container large enough to hold both components. Add an equal volume of Part A to Part B while under agitation. Continue agitation until the two components are thoroughly mixed for at least 1 minute per gallon. Allow idle activation time for at least 10 minutes.  Lacquer Thinner should only be added after the activation process is complete.

Thinner:
Thin with Lacquer thinner for air spray applications, thin up to 10% or 3/4 pint per gallon. For airless spray, roller or brush, thin up to 5% or 1/4 pint per gallon.

Application
Brush, 3/8” nap roller cover, or airless spray equipment may be used to apply ReflectASeal-425.  Surface configuration, weather, or area surroundings will dictate application method.

DRY FILM APPLICATION

 

To get dry film of:     Apply Sq.Ft./gal

5   mils                      200 sq. ft.

10  mils                      100 sq. ft.

DO NOT apply product heavier than 1 gal. per 200 sq. ft. per coat.  For a heavier dry film, apply necessary number of coats. Use of thinner increases possibility of sag and reduces dry film thickness.

 

General:
ReflectASeal-425 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.  Use White Vinegar to clean hands and skin.  Do not allow ReflectASeal-425 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.
