PermaTec 4000 HT
PERMATEC 4000 HT is a 100% solids epoxy floor topping designed for high temperature applications commonly found in many manufacturing processes. PERMATEC 4000 HT is design to withstand constant temperatures to 212°F (100°C) and intermittent exposures to 250°F (122°C). The PERMATEC 4000 HT system consists of a two component resin binder and graded aggregate. It is applied with a trowel or screed rake at 1/8-1/4 inches (125-250 mils) in a one coat application including a silica broadcast. There is no need for a primer or sealer coat. An optional glaze coat may be used to improve the appearance and cleanability.
The vertical formulation of PERMATEC 4000 HT is trowel applied at 1/8 inches (125 mils).
The primary use of PERMATEC 4000 HT is as a high strength floor topping for industrial service where elevated temperatures and severe mechanical abuse or chemical exposure are anticipated.
PERMATEC 4000 HT is a 100% solids system and allows for a fast application where good chemical and wear resistance are required. PERMATEC 4000 HT can be installed over most sound floors including old or new concrete and most types of repair mortars. At varying thickness up to 1/4 inches, the PERMATEC 4000 HT system provides long term chemical resistance for splash and spill, or immersion service in many chemicals.
As with all PERMATEC systems, PERMATEC HT provides excellent physical protection even in the harshest industrial settings. The physical properties of PERMATEC 4000 HT are many times those of standard concrete.

Packaging & Coverage
PERMATEC 4000 HT is available in 20, 100, and 1000 square foot units based on 1/4 inch applications. Each unit consists of pre-measured components. Part A (Resin) and Part B (Hardener). Graded aggregates are available or may be sourced locally.
Application thickness may vary from 1/8 to 1/4 inches, depending on the expected service conditions. Factors to consider are 1) length of chemical exposure (e.g. immersion vs. splash/spill) and; 2) mechanical abuses (e.g., tow traffic, loaded trucks vs cart and foot traffic, etc.)
The cure time of PERMATEC 4000 HT and other resinous systems are very dependent upon the temperature of the substrate. The ambient temperature may not be the same as the substrate temperature. For example during winter, concrete may be colder than the surrounding ambient temperature. As temperatures during the day may increase, large masses of concrete will be much slower to react. During summer days direct sunlight will increase the concrete temperature over that of the ambient air. The substrate temperature should be monitored and remain at or above 65°F.
*Where heavy chemical abuses are anticipated, longer cure times may be required.
Mixing & Application
For mixing and application information, please refer to the PERMATEC Heavy-Duty Application Guidelines.
PERMATEC 4000 HT contains blended epoxies as the 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.
Storage & Shelf Life
PERMATEC 4000 HT should be stored at 65-90°F out of direct sunlight. All containers should remain unopened until ready for use. If stored as set out above PERMATEC 4000 HT has a minimum shelf life of one year.
Where PERMATEC 4000 HT Should Not Be Installed
PERMATEC 4000 HT should not be applied over substrates:
- subject to hydrostatic pressure
- which are unsound
- which are contaminated and cannot be cleaned
- at temperatures below 65°F
- which are wet during application
