Application Details
Mixing: 4 parts base to 1 part catalyst by volume. Mix base and catalyst separately for 3 minutes with a flat paddle before adding the catalyst to the base, thereafter mix well for an additional 3 minutes with a flat paddle. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before application.
Method: Roller or brush (Not a mohair/short nap roller).
Thinning: Not recommended.
Cleaning: Remove as much of the product as possible from the application equipment before cleaning with soap and water.

Conditions:

  • Temperature between 5°C and 40°C.
  • Relative humidity of less than 85%, preferably between 10: 00 and 16: 00.
  • Ideally apply when the temperature of the substrate is at least 2°C above dew point.
  • If possible away from direct sunlight.

Drying time:
Touch dry:  2 hours, Hard dry:  24 hours, Full hardness - 7 days. 
Note:  Higher temperatures will accelerate the drying times (approximately halved for every 10°C increase), whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying time (approximately doubled for every 10°C decrease).

Recoating time: 18 hours.
Requirements: Two coats on new work.
Pot life: 3 hours.

Surface Preparations
Steel:

  • One coat Prominent Machinery Enamel Primer Zinc Phosphate or Prominent Etch Primer.

Fibreglass:

  • Abrade and apply directly.

Concrete:

  • Acid wash surface with Spirits of Salt diluted 1: 10 with water to etch surface.
  • Neutralise acid etching by washing the surface with ProGold General Purpose Cleaner diluted 1: 10 with water and apply directly when dry.

Steel trowelled concrete:

  • Acid wash surface with Spirits of Salt diluted 1: 10 with water to etch surface.
  • Neutralise acid etching by washing the surface with ProGold General Purpose Cleaner diluted 1: 10 with water and apply directly when dry.

Sound existing Prominent Stoep Enamel:

  • Sand with P80 sandpaper to a matt finish.
  • Wash with ProGold General Purpose Cleaner diluted 1: 10 with water and abrasive pad, allow to dry and apply directly.

Limitations

  • Cannot withstand UV rays - interior use only.
  • Base and catalyst requires thorough mixing for 3 minutes separately first and an additional 3 minutes when added using a flat paddle to ensure good application results.
  • Long curing time limits use for workshop floors within 24 hours after application.
  • High humidity and cold conditions will lengthen drying time.
  • Limited resistance to concentrated acids.
  • When overcoated with Prominent 2 Pack Polyurethane Floor coating, allow 4 days drying time.
  • Moisture level must be below 15%.
  • Sheen and colour variances can be visible due to variable film thickness/number of coats applied.
  • Not recommended for tinting with universal stainers.
  • The standard white colour will not be as white as white acrylic based coatings. The Prominent 2 Pack Floor Epoxy white has a slight yellow undertone.
  • The low VOC compliance is applicable on white only for batches manufactured from 1 January 2011 onwards.
  • To ensure a consistent appearance ensure that batch numbers on all the containers are the same. Where the batch numbers differ, intermix before use.

Tint Bases
The tint base containers are only filled to levels which are specific for each tint base to allow the calculated volume of colourant to be added in order to achieve the volume indicated on the container after tinting. Tint bases and colourants are unfinished products which should not be used on their own. Only once the prescribed colourant is added to the specific tint base will the finished product comply with the technical features and related information as set out in this TDS. The calculated maximum VOC compliance to < 140g/L is only applicable to White and not tinted product.

Colourant to be used: 
Prominent colourants are 100% Lead Free specifically formulated for use with Prominent Pro-Matic tinting system.
