Product Detail

Powerfloat Base Coat is a two-component, water-based epoxy coating designed to improve adhesion of top coatings. This allows top coats to go on more smoothly and last longer on hard, smooth, powerfloated surfaces that would usually reject paint. Powerfloat Base Coat can be top coated with most types of floor coating technologies including acrylic, epoxies and polyurethanes.

Features and Benefits:

  • Primes hard, smooth surfaces ready for painting
  • Quick and easy to apply - only one coat needed
  • Eliminates the need for costly shot blasting or grinding
  • Low Odor
  • Can be top-coated in 16 hours

How to Apply

Surface Preparation
The concrete surface must be clean, dry and free of loose material. New concrete should be allowed to cure for 28 days prior to coating. Remove oil, dirt, grease and other chemical contaminants by cleaning with detergent or another suitable cleaner. Rinse thoroughly. Existing coatings should be well bonded and sound.

Mixing
Combine the base and activator components. Use a paint paddle or spatula to scrape out and transfer as much of the material as possible. Mix the components thoroughly until an even, uniform color is achieved. If using a power mixer use a paint paddle or spatula to blend in any unmixed material from the sides and bottom of the pail. Do not delay application, usable pot life is 2 hours.

Application
Apply in a well-ventilated area when the air and surface temperatures are between 50-85°F. Use a good quality lint-free 3/8" nap roller with a phenolic core. A brush may be used for cutting in along walls. Avoid excessive film thickness. Compatible topcoats are Water-Based Epoxy Coat, Safety Coat and Concrete Floor Paint.

Curing Time
Allow 16 hours prior to the application of finish coating. The finish coating must be applied within 72 hours.

Coverage
Approximately 250 sq.ft. per one gallon kit.
