Moisture Tolerant

Epoxy Primer

and Base Coat

Epoxy.com Product #100

Can be Used as a Primer Over Concrete as New as 5 Days


Epoxy.com Product #100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat consists of a unique water based epoxy technology which allows the contractor to install epoxy resin floor systems and other moisture sensitive floor coverings on new concrete (5 days old) without fear of moisture entrapment. Epoxy.com Product 100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat is applied in a two coat application. Epoxy.com Product 100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat is the primer/basecoat used in various Epoxy.com Products

Epoxy.com Product #100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat is a unique two-component, moisture tolerant, extremely high density, chemically enhanced epoxy based product which reduces the passage of water vapor and moisture through slabs on, above or below grade, thus eliminating delamination and blistering of adhesives, floor coverings, resin floor systems, epoxy terrazzo and coatings.

Epoxy.com Product #100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat controls water vapor transmission levels for the installation of most floor covering systems, including VCT, sheet vinyl, carpets, wood, laminates, epoxy resin flooring and epoxy terrazzo.

Advantages

  • Vapor and water barrier.
  • Can be placed on new concrete in as little as 5 days.
  • Water based – low VOC.
  • Highly moisture tolerant
  • Barrier against radon and other gasses
  • Compatible with most flooring systems – conventional, and seamless epoxy flooring systems.
  • Does not support the growth of mold.
  • Easy to install with little down time.

Considerations

  • Substrate must be at least 50° F during installation and curing
  • Substrate must be free of dirt, sealers, waxes, and other foreign materials that would interfere with proper bonding.
  • Must be installed a minimum of 1/8 for use with moisture sensitive floor coverings.

 

Application

Surface preparation

Surface preparation is the most critical portion of any successful resinous flooring system application. All substrates must be properly prepared as outlined in Epoxy.com Surface Preparation Procedures. Epoxy.com Technical Support Department is pleased to answer any questions.

Mixing

Epoxy.com Product #100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat is a two-component material. Do not alter mixing ratios in any way. Part I and Part II are supplied in the correct mixing ratios. Always mix a complete unit in the proportions supplied.

Stir material for approximately 3-4 minutes to form a homogeneous consistency using a slow speed drill and “Jiffy” blade. Do not entrap excessive air. Scrape all sides and bottom of container to ensure thorough mixing.

Priming

Prime using Epoxy.com Product #100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat thinned 10% with one (1) pint of potable water per 1.25 gallon unit for good
penetration. Apply with a squeegee and short nap roller to the properly prepared substrate. Back roll with the short nap roller to achieve a uniform coverage. Allow to cure hard enough for foot traffic, about 3-4 hours at 75 degrees F.

Body Coat

Apply one (1) Part of Epoxy.com Product #100 Moisture Tolerant Primer and Base Coat to 4 parts of B. Thoroughly mix with a low speed drill and Jiffy blade until uniform. Mix with low speed drill until uniform and no lumps. Apply with trowel, or squeegee. Allow to self-level and backroll with a looped roller. A 1.25 gallon unit will
cover 30 sq. ft. @ 1/16″.

Broadcast surface with broadcast sand to excess (30-50 lbs./100 sq. ft.) with Epoxy.com Product #77 to achieve 1/8 inch. Sweep and vacuum excess or loose sand after hardening (16-24 hours, depending on temperature).

Top Coatings and Overlays

Apply top coatings or resin floor system directly over broadcast surface. Prime surface with appropriate Epoxy.com primer as required. For vinyl flooring and other floor coverings consult with manufacturer of floor covering.
