The PERMACOAT line of “Medium Duty” industrial floor coatings is designed to provide protection against splashes, spills, and fumes from a broad range of aggressive chemicals. The Perma Coat line also provides protection against light to moderate mechanical abuses found in today’s industrial environments.
When properly installed to thicknesses of 16 to 60 mils, Perma Coat floors will provide many years of aesthetically appealing, durable service.
In addition to your flooring needs, Perma Coat products are available in vertical formulations for applications that may experience splash and spill from aggressive chemicals (i.e., Secondary Containment), or high pressure washdowns during sanitation procedures. These products can be used for architectural coatings and industrial floor coatings and are designed to last. They are also used for abrasion resistant coatings and paint and coatings.
Prior to application of the PERMACOAT system the resin, hardener, silica and substrate should be between 70°F and 95°F.
Premix the Resin (Part A) for 30 seconds using a Jiffler mixer blade attached to a 500-750 RPM drill. Add the Hardener (Part B) only when the batch is ready to be applied. Mix for approx. 90-120 seconds. After mixing pour immediately onto floor.
Use a rubber squeegee to spread the resin over the pre-measured area to be covered. Immediately back roll the PERMACOAT with a short nap (1/8 inches) wool or mohair roller. At this point several pre-specified readings should be made with a wet mil gauge to assure uniform coverage. After the coating has been back rolled and uniform thickness verified, the surface should be saturated with a silica broadcast.
After the first coat supports foot traffic, the excess silica can be removed. Within 24 hours a second coat of PERMACOAT should be applied using the same procedure, minus the silica broadcast.
All mixing and application equipment should be cleaned immediately after use. If this is done, soap and water, or biodegradable cleaners can be used. If the material has begun to set, more aggressive solvents will be necessary. Before using solvents, refer to their respective MSDS for handling considerations.
For systems designed for splash and spill exposures, routine wash downs are recommended to reduce the length of chemical exposure. This step is not necessary where the product is recommended for containment service.
Storage & Shelf Life
PERMACOAT should be stored at 50°F-90°F out of direct sunlight. All containers should remain unopened until ready for use. If stored as set out above, this product has a minimum shelf life of one year.
Where PERMACOAT Should Not Be Installed
PERMACOAT should not be applied over substrates:
- which are wet during the application
- subject to hydrostatic pressure
- which are unsound
- which are contaminated and cannot be cleaned
- at temperatures below 70°F (Consult ChemProof Polymers)
PERMACOAT contains blended Epoxies as resin and blended Amines as the hardener. Protective clothing and gloves are recommended to prevent sensitization to these materials. In case of ingestion or eye contact, contact a physician immediately. MSDS are available for this product upon request.
