Diamond-Epoxy AP®

DESCRIPTION: 

DIAMOND-EPOXY AP is a 100% solids, UV-resistant, highly versatile, self-leveling epoxy coating engineered with stress-relieving flexibility that provides a durable material that resists wear from foot traffic, rubber wheels and chemical attack. It cures to form a smooth, glossy surface finish, or a slip-resistant finish with the addition of aggregate.
  RECOMMENDED USES: 

Diamond-Epoxy AP is a versatile polymer coating that can be installed by squeegee and roller to provide a smooth, glossy finish for coating and sealing concrete floors. Diamond-Epoxy AP is suited for floor surfaces subjected to chemical exposure and mechanical abuse. See DiamondStone Chemical Resistance Guide for chemical and concentration resistance. Common applications include manufacturing facilities, laboratories, electronics assembly facilities and packaging facilities. Diamond-Epoxy AP can be used as a body coat under urethane floors, a self-leveling slurry, broadcast system or a flood coat to provide a smooth finish to epoxy mortar floors.

LIMITATIONS: 

Do not apply when concrete temperature is less than 50° F or greater than 95° F. (Material cures slower at cooler temperatures, and working time will be substantially reduced at higher temperatures.) All components should be stored in a dry place at temperatures between 65° F and 85° F. Confirm product performance in specific chemical environment prior to use. Substrate temperature must be at least 5° F above the dew point. Diamond-Epoxy AP’s fast-cure formula is not light-stable and will amber or yellow if used as a stand-alone product. Actual color may vary slightly upon application. Diamond-Epoxy AP is not recommended in Clear.

PRECAUTIONS: 

DiamondStone, LLC recommends the use of slip-resistant grit with this product. Floors should be sloped to drain to prevent standing water or chemicals. As with any surface, all spills should be removed as soon as possible to prevent a slipping hazard. Always use protective clothing, gloves and goggles consistent with OSHA regulations during use. Avoid eye and skin contact. Do not ingest or inhale. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for detailed safety precautions. When using fast-cure version, system must be topcoated due to poor UV resistance.  

SURFACE PREPARATION: 

Apply only to clean and sound concrete substrates that are free of all coatings, sealers, curing compounds, oils, greases or any other contaminants. New concrete should be cured a minimum of 28 days. Concrete that has been contaminated with chemicals or other foreign matter must be neutralized or removed. Remove any laitance or weak surface layers. Concrete should have a minimum surface tensile strength of 300 psi. Prepare surface by mechanical means to achieve a profile equal to industry standards. Moisture testing of the concrete surface should be performed pursuant to ASTM E-1907 moisture testing specification. See DiamondStone Concrete Moisture Limits & Testing Policy for project-specific testing requirements and, if necessary, moisture-tolerant options. Bare concrete should be tested for pH and exhibit a pH between 7 and 11. NOTE: Although testing is critical, it is not a guarantee that future challenges will not arise. All surface irregularities, cracks, expansion joints and control joints should be properly addressed prior to application. Outgassing may occur due to the porosity of some concrete surfaces. Refer to DiamondStone Surface Preparation Guidelines for more details.
