- VOC <50 g/l (meets CARB and SCAQHD)
How to Apply Low VOC Premium Clear Coating
Allow new concrete to cure for a minimum of 28 days. Remove any oil spots, grease, or spills and wash the floor with EpoxyShield Heavy Duty Degreaser or a suitable detergent or degreasing solution. Thoroughly rinse with fresh water. Then etch the floor using Rust-Oleum Concrete Etch.
Previously Coated Floors : Make sure the floor is clean and dry. For previous coatings, use a wire brush to remove any loose or peeling paint or stain. If floor is sealed, the sealer will have to be removed by grinding or shot blasting. To ensure proper adhesion, scuff sand the entire surface.
All pilot lights or open flames in the area must be extinguished due to the flammability of the solvents in the coating. Pilot lights or open flames must remain extinguished for a minimum of 24 hours following application of the EpoxyShield Low VOC Premium Clear Coating.
Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures are between 60-85°F (15-29°C) and the surface temperature is at least 5°F (3°C) above the dew point. The relative humidity should not be greater than 85%. The minimum floor temperature for painting is 55°F (13°C). Pour a portion of the admixed material into a lined paint pan. Immediately begin to cut in the perimeter of the floor along the wall, or other areas where a roller cannot reach, using a brush or edger before beginning roller application. Use a synthetic ⅜" nap roller cover on a 9" roller frame to apply an even coat of EpoxyShield Low VOC Premium Clear Coating onto the surface. Limit the application to 4x4 foot (1.2x1.2m) sections at a time. Maintain a wet edge to prevent lap marks and gloss variations. Make all final passes in the same direction to ensure uniform appearance. Coated floor may become slippery when wet. Use of the Anti-Skid Additive (included) is strongly recommended. If using the anti-slip additive, continue to stir the admixed material periodically to ensure additive does not settle in the pan. Only one coat is necessary under most circumstances. EpoxyShield Low VOC Premium Clear must be used within 90 minutes following initial mixing to ensure even gloss.
