Clear Epoxy Coating from Right Choice is a solvent free, 100% solids epoxy (3:1 mixing rate). It is a heavy duty concrete coating system that easily roll applied. Clear Epoxy Floor Coating has excellent mechanical properties, making it long lasting and easy to maintain. It is the most durable and the hardest wearing of epoxies. With excellent resistance to chemical and solvent spills, Clear Epoxy is suitable for a variety of applications.
It cures at room temperature without blushing, making it suitable for use in food processing, commercial and residential applications, while also being able to be used in the Epoxy Flake Flooring system to replace the Polyurethane top coat to create a glass like finish. Clean-up or thinning (if required) is with the Right Choice Solvent.
Excellent wear resistance
Ease of application
Very good chemical resistance
* 10ltrs will do 2 coats over approximately 25m² – 30m² (concrete porosity dependent)
Coverage rates will be determined by how porous the concrete is (how easily water soaks in). The easier and quicker that water soaks in, the more porous the concrete is and the more product you will use. The preparation guide has information on how to perform this simple test.
How To Calculate m²
Length of Substrate x Width of Substrate = Total m²
Ensure to read the TECHNICAL DATA SHEET, the PREPARATION GUIDE and the APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS thoroughly first.
It is recommended to do a test patch first to determine the suitability of the product.
Epoxy is not designed to be applied to outdoor substrates. It is NOT uv stable.
Do not apply when the ambient temperature is below 15c or above 28c.
The substrate must be cool to touch before applying any sealer or coating.
Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for coverage.
Generally only two coats are required, however on a highly porous surface then a third coat may be necessary.
Clear Epoxy Coating should be mixed at a ratio of: 3 parts A to 1 part B
Thoroughly mix “part A” first.
Once mixed, slowly pour “part B” into “part A” while still mixing. Mix for approximately 2 minutes using a slow speed drill and squirrel mixing paddle. Allow to stand for 1 minute & then mix again for 1 minute.
Only mix enough epoxy that can be used within 25 minutes.
Applying the 1st Coat
Always wear the appropriate personal protection equipment.
Clear Epoxy Coating should be applied using a 10mm – 12mm nap, lint free roller cover.
Immediately pour the epoxy onto the substrate in ribbons.
Do not leave the epoxy in the bucket as it will go off much quicker.
Use a new bucket for every new batch that you mix.
Never mix a new batch in a previously used bucket as this will accelerate the setting time of the epoxy and you decrease the working time dramatically.
Spread the epoxy with a squeegee or roll out roughly to achieve the correct m² per litre.
Once the spread rate is achieved, gently “tip off” the epoxy with the roller and move on to the next section. This will allow the epoxy to self level.
The more times you roll it, the more chance there is of it going off too quick and getting roller marks.
Ensure to keep “wet edge” of the epoxy to avoid any overlapping marks or roller marks.
Lightly sand the first coat using a sander or sanders pole with a 180# sandpaper. If the epoxy produces a fine dust it is dry enough to sand, however if it is clogging up the sandpaper then you will need to wait longer for it to cure.
Thoroughly vacuum the first coat after sanding and remove any dust particles etc.
Apply the second coat in the same manner as above.
Once the second coat is finished, allow a minimum of 24 hours drying time before walking on and 10 days before driving over.
The more air flow and warmer conditions, the quicker the epoxy will cure. Colder conditions and no air flow can cause a lengthy delay in the epoxy curing.
