ReflectASeal 550

REFLECTASEAL-550 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 and a high tolerance to impact resistance.  REFLECTASEAL-550 is a metal primer developed specifically as a rust inhibitor for metal roof applications.

Application Areas:
REFLECTASEAL-550 is a protective coating for walls, tanks, pipes, floors, stairs, decks, equipment, and much more.  REFLECTASEAL-550 can be used where moist areas may prevent the use of other coatings.  REFLECTASEAL-550 is used in commercial and industrial surroundings.


REFLECTASEAL-550 has excellent resistance to various solvents, hydrocarbons, acids and alkalis.


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-550 to adhere to. The preparation procedures above are general guidelines. Detailed preparation methods are available through SSPC at or 412-281-2331 or NACE at or 281-228-6200.

The mixing of parts A & B is very important!  REFLECTASEAL-550 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.  Lacquer Thinner should only be added after the activation is complete.  For general purposes, no more than 1 quart per 4 gallons of solvent should be added to the mixture.

Brush, 3/8” nap roller cover, or airless spray equipment may be used to apply REFLECTASEAL-550.  Surface configuration, weather, or area surroundings will dictate application method.

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

DO NOT apply 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-550 may be applied to damp surfaces but it is best to have a dry surface if possible.

Allow REFLECTASEAL-550 to become tack-free before applying additional coats or approximately 6 hrs.  Caution!  Without the use of aggregate in REFLECTASEAL-550, the surface will be slippery when wet!

REFLECTASEAL-550 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 Apple Cider Vinegar to clean hands and skin.  Do not allow REFLECTASEAL-550 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.
