Packing and Storage
Continuous storage should be between 60°F and 90°F. 718 HB FS Epoxy is available in pre measured kits consisting of pre diluted epoxy resin (Part A) and a curing agent (Part B) to provide chemically resistant coating with a mix ratio of 2 Parts A to 1 Part B. 718 HB HG must be stored in an area as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. The shelf life is one year from ship date in the original unopened container.
Tinting is performed by the installer on site for all kit sizes using the EP (Epoxy Pigment). Pre tinted are kits are available upon request.
718 HB HG is designed to be maintenance-free flooring. The high degree of chemical resistance imparted by the urethane binder allows this system to be cleaned with strong acid or caustic cleaners without damage. Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.
For all information regarding product use and correct product disposal please refer to Safety Data Sheet.
Mixing and Application Instructions
718 HB HG is generally applied at a thickness of 12 mils to l/8″ per coat, however up to 3″ can be applied as a mutual blend. Apply between 65°F – 90°F with relative humidity below 90%. Application temperature can be as low as 45 degrees F with optional Accelerator. Thinning is not required. The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. Properly prime the substrate. It is best to maintain a wet edge to avoid roller marks. Direct sunlight or high temperatures may cause visible roller marking during application. Too thick of an application may result in solvent entrapment and product failure.
