EPiC PolyCryl

High Strength Enamel Surface Coating

EPiC PolyCryl is a High Strength 2 Pack Floor Coating which provides excellent protection for Concrete, Timber, Masonry and Primed Metal surfaces with proven durability and performance. The coating provides excellent hardness and scuff resistance, designed for a wide variety of applications including commercial and industrial floors and walls.

Typical Uses

EPiC PolyCryl provides excellent protection against:

  • Petrol
  • Oil
  • Fatty Oils
  • Alkali
  • Acids and Efflorescence

It has a high resistance to Corrosion and Abrasion and is impervious to Water and Moisture. PolyCryl is an Isocyanate free coating and is safer for use compared to Polyurethanes that contain Isocyanate. It is also suitable for use as a sacrificial Anti-Graffiti coating on concrete, masonry and metal surfaces.

Applications & Features

EPiC PolyCryl is used for a wide variety of applications where traditional floor paints, paving paint, epoxy coatings and furniture finishes are used. It has excellent interior and exterior durability, with high resistance to solvents, corrosion and abrasion after full curing is achieved. PolyCryl is highly petrol resistant and suitable for petrol stations and vehicle repair workshops. Designed as a 2 coat system, PolyCryl provides excellent protection against fading, powdering of oxide colours, staining or marking due to contaminants, oil or grease.

Application Guide

Equipment

Brush, roller or spray application. Use good quality brush and roller sleeve. Spray application will depend on the type of finish required. Do not store mixed product in spray equipment as this may damage the equipment.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be free from Rust, Oil, Grease, and all other surface contamination. New concrete must have a pH level less than 10 and had at least 28 days to cure. New and old Concrete should be Acid Etched using 1 Part Hydrochloric Acid or Nu EcoSafe Concrete Etch to 10 Parts Water. High Pressure Water Blast area (> 2000Psi) and allow to completely dry. Painted concrete in poor condition should be stripped using our Nu Ecosafe range of paint strippers and acid etched before application.

Paint Mixture

Mix 3 Parts A to 1 Part B. Drill mix until well combined. Hand mixing is inadequate for a good application. After mixing leave to stand for 10 minutes before using to allow full activation. Pot life of mixed product is 8 hours. DO NOT use after pot life has expired.

Thinning

For spray application, thin 10% – 15% using EPiC PolyCryl Thinners. Brush or roll applications do not require thinning. Bare concrete and masonry surfaces should be thinned 20% – 25% for the first application coat to enable penetration and adhesion. Only dilute with EPiC PolyCryl Thinners.

Number of Coats

For best results apply two coats. Spray applications may require additional coats to achieve required thickness.

Dry and Re-Coat Times

PolyCryl is touch dry after 40 mins (at 25°C). Recoat after 2-4 hours but within 12 hours. If recoating after 7 days, the surface must be abraded. Allow to dry for 7 days to achieve a hard cure.

Clean Up

EPiC PolyCryl Thinners, PR Solvent or Gun Wash.

Warnings

Sealing of smooth and sloping concrete surfaces will reduce pedestrian and vehicle safety. For greater slip reduction a Coarse or Fine 2PK Anti Slip can be sprinkled on the wet freshly applied surface of the first coat and encapsulated with a subsequent coat of EPiC PolyCryl.

Testing is recommended before proceeding to ensure that a potential slip hazard is avoided. Refer to your Nutech specialist for alternative recommendations on steep, smooth surfaces.

Apply the second coat within 12 hours of applying the first coat

Safety Precautions

Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and a recommended respirator for spray application.

Make sure there is good air flow and ventilation before applying this coating.
