PERMACOAT 6500 is a 100% solids epoxy novolac containment and/or floor coating system. The PERMACOAT 6500 is specifically designed as a containment product for industrial solvents and acids.
PERMACOAT 6500 consists of two components, resin and hardener, in both horizontal and vertical formulations. Application is accomplished with rubber squeegees and short nap paint rollers.
The PERMACOAT 6500 system is design as a 60-250 mil secondary containment/floor system where exposure to harsh chemicals such as Nitric Acid, Glacial Acetic Acid, Ethylene Dichloride or N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone are anticipated.
PERMACOAT 6500 can be installed over most sound substrates, including old or new concrete, and many types of repair mortars.
- Chemical process floors
- Tank farm containment
- Chemical loading and unloading areas
- Drum storage areas
The PERMACOAT 6500 containment system allows for fast, easy applications with minimal down time. PERMACOAT 6500 is monolithic and non-porous, eliminating the most common avenues of flooring/containment failure (i.e. seams and porosity).
The resinous PERMACOAT 6500 system exhibits very high physical properties, approximately 3-4 times those of standard concrete.
Other Features Include:
- Low odor
- Non-skid safety finish

Packaging & Coverage
The PERMACOAT 6500 resin and primer are packaged in one and three gallon units. Each unit consists of pre-measured components, Part A (Resin) and Part B (Hardener).
Application thickness may vary from 80-250mils, depending on the expected service conditions. Factors to consider are 1) length of chemical exposure; 2) mechanical abuses; and 3) substrate texture.
Where PERMACOAT 6500 Should Not Be Installed
PERMACOAT 4000 should not be applied over substrates:
- subject to hydrostatic pressure
- which are unsound
- which are contaminated and cannot be cleaned
- at temperatures below 70°F (Consult ChemProof Polymers)
PERMACOAT 6500 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.
