PolyKoat GL-80

 

PolyKoat GL-80 is a high-performance, two-component Polyaspartic Aliphatic Polyurea utilizing cutting-edge nano-technology. PolyKoat GL-80 provides a high gloss clear coating, and it’s extremely quick curing time provides unmatched labor savings over epoxies and polyurethanes. PolyKoat GL-80 can be used for most types of interior applications over properly prepared surfaces. It’s superior penetration and bonding strength can provide years of abrasion, impact, and wear resistance. PolyKoat GL-80 has excellent chemical and hot tire pick-up resistance.

PolyKoat is an extremely fast-curing product. This is what makes PolyKoat such as time saver, but it also demands respect. Once you mix part(A) and part(B), the clock starts ticking. Do not underestimate this product. It is FAST. Never mix more than you can apply in a 8-10 minute window. Plan ahead and you will have no issues. Complete one area at a time and use control joints and doorways as logical starting and stopping points. Always have extra rollers, frames, stir sticks, mixing pails and measuring cups ready to go. High-solids products like PolyKoat are actually very easy to apply. Unlike paints and cheap low-solids sealers, these products don't need to be excessively rolled. Apply in a heavy, wet, even coat and let the product self-level. Under application or over-rolling can cause unwanted texture in the final appearance.

 

PolyKoat can be used clear, with color or with our RapidCast Color-Flakes. Each part of the PolyKoat System is sold separately to maximize versatility.

 

Color Tint For Polyaspartic PolyKoat Color:

Color can be added to PolyKoat to create beautiful, high gloss solid colors. PolyPack Color is available in 14 great colors to fit any situation. Colors can also be mixed to create endless combinations. Color is also recommended in the base coat of flake floor installations to create a more uniform appearance. Simply add less pigment to achieve a more translucent color or use up to 9oz / gallon for a solid opaque color.

 

Garage Floor Flakes RapidCast Color-Flakes:

Color-Flakes are available in 8 awesome color blends. All 8 blends are available in both 1/4" and 1/16" size flakes. This gives you 16 chip color/size options to create the perfect floor color, texture and appearance. Chips can be broadcast in any desired amount to create the exact look you desire. Average coverage is approximately 6 sq. ft. / lb for a full broadcast coverage. Flakes are packaged in 50 pound boxes. This means a 50 pound box will cover approximately 300 sq. ft. at a full broadcast. Always order more flakes than you expect to need! You DO NOT want to run out!!!

 

 

Cleaning and Preparation Instructions

 

1. Remove any and all sealers, coatings and curing compounds on the concrete surface.

2. For best appearance and durability of solid color, flake or quartz installations, first repair all cracks using our RapidSet-100 crack filler. See separate application instructions for RapidSet-100.

3. Interior Floors MUST be profiled prior to application. Diamond grind floors to between 50 - 100 grit. Be sure to remove all swirl marks, but do not grind finer than 100 grit. Beyond 100 grit, topcoat adhesion will be compromised. Dry grinding is highly recommended to avoid introduction of moisture into the concrete.

4. Remove any latent dust from concrete surface by auto scrubber or vacuum system. Do not use any chemicals. Surface must be clean, dry and porous before application of PolyKoat!

5. Allow area to dry completely.

 

Perform a simple moisture vapor test by taping an 18 inch x 18 inch plastic sheet onto a section of floor. Remove plastic after 24 hours. If floor or plastic is wet, DO NOT PROCEED. First determine if moisture is remaining from the cleaning process, or if it is a more serious issue coming from the soil below the slab. More advanced moisture testing kits should be used on floors with suspected moisture problems. If needed, allow floor additional time to dry from the cleaning process. In winter months or in basements, this could take anywhere from 24 hours to a month or more. If you suspect a moisture issue from beneath the slab, DO NOT PROCEED. Whatever you do, don't take a chance on trapping moisture in the slab. PolyKoat WILL NOT adhere to concrete with high levels of moisture. Moisture trapped below the coating will cause the sealer to fail, resulting in a costly disaster for you. When moisture testing confirms the slab is dry, ONLY THEN are you ready to seal the concrete.

Protect all areas not to be coated. Mask off all adjacent surfaces. Before opening or handling PolyKoat GL-80, first put on proper protective equipment including eye protection, rubber gloves and respirator rated for use with aromatic solvents.

 

Mixing Instructions

 

1. Before mixing, you will first need to determine the approximate amount of PolyKoat you will need to mix to complete the portion of your project you have planned. Do not mix more than you can apply in a 8-10 minute window. During application, when PolyKoat begins to harden, the remainder should be discarded and a new batch mixed. Do not add freshly mixed product to container already containing product near the end of it's pot life.

2. For tinted or solid color applications, first mix desired amount of PolyPack Color with pre-measured amount of PartA and mix thoroughly. For most solid color applications, the average usage is 8-9 ounces of PolyPack Color per 1 gallon of finished coating. This means: To make approximately one gallon of colored PolyKoat, mix up to 9 oz. of color with 1/2 gallon of PartA (which will then be mixed with 1/2 gallon of PartB to complete the volume) For lighter colors it may take more and darker colors may take less depending on the application. Do not add too much color! Over pigmenting may cause color float or streaking. Especially in the darker colors! Do not allow product to puddle during application!

3. Proper mixing is critical to application success. In equal parts (1:1), mix Part A and Part B using a clean, dry mixing container. Stir contents approximately 30-60 seconds. Avoid over-mixing or creating a vortex which could introduce moisture content to the mixture. No induction time is required prior to use, nor after mixing.

4. For additional slip resistance or added texture, Surface Grip may be added after Parts A & B have been thoroughly mixed. Adding Surface Grip is a great way to reduce slip and falls, reduce gloss/reflection and also hide minor imperfections in the concrete. Follow mixing instructions and do not overload system. All non-skid additives may shorten the life of the film to some degree.

5. Product is now ready to apply!

 

Maximum expected workable pot life after mixing Part A and Part B is approximately 20-25 minutes at a common temperature range of 70 F - 80 F at 50% relative humidity. Please note that higher temperatures and high percentages of humidity will shorten pot life, as colder temperatures and lower percentages of humidity will extend the coatings pot life.

 

Specific Applications

 

Before application, always test product in an inconspicuous area to ensure appearance and compatibility are acceptable. Concrete should be fully cured for 28 days before applying PolyKoat.

 

How to Seal Stained Concrete Floors Stained Concrete Floors:

PolyKoat GL-80 is the perfect clear top-coat for all types of stained or dyed interior concrete floors. PolyKoat can be applied directly to a properly prepped floor or over a compatible primer or base-coat. In most cases we recommend first applying a primer coat of Seal-n-Lock SuperWet before application of PolyKoat over stained or dyed concrete. We recommend this for three reasons: First, PolyKoat dramatically darkens and enhances the color of the stained concrete. This is not a bad thing, but in most cases it is too much darkening and the colors do not appear as they were chosen from the stain or dye color chart. SuperWet creates a perfect enhancement every time, with colors much more true to the manufacturer's color charts. Second, SuperWet seals off the surface, locking in the stain or dye with a easy spray-on primer. This is especially important when using acetone stains or dyes, since they can be re-activated by rolling over them. This causes the dye to be lifted onto the roller, often distorting the color you worked to create. Third, SuperWet is water-based and actually designed to be used over damp surfaces. This gives you an extra barrier of protection from hidden moisture below the slab. Moisture in the concrete is always the #1 reason for coating failures.

Optional Seal-n-Lock SuperWet Primer Application Instructions:

1. Apply primer coat to properly prepared concrete with a high quality sprayer. Evenly apply a uniform wet coat over the entire area. (avoid overspray on adjacent surfaces, use spray shield or mask off areas not intended to be sealed). We recommend 2 parts water : 1 part SuperWet for priming concrete floors. Do not allow to puddle. The purpose is to saturate the surface of the concrete, but not to apply more product than the floor can absorb.

2. Allow Seal-n-Lock SuperWet to dry/cure for 12-24 hours. Product cures faster in warmer temperates and slower in cooler temperatures. Do not allow SuperWet to cure longer than 36 hours before applying top-coat!

3. Apply compatible top-coat according to manufacturer's instructions. SuperWet is compatible with most high-performance coatings such as Polyaspartics, Epoxies and Urethanes. We never recommend the use of any acrylic (solvent or water-based) over SuperWet.

Concrete Floor Primer = 2:1 dilution applied at 250-350 sq. ft. / gallon
Floor Primer Product Estimate Rate = 750-1000 sq. ft. / gallon of SuperWet Concentrate... This means a 5gallon kit of SuperWet should be enough product to prime a 3750-5000 sq. ft. floor.

 

PolyKoat Stained Floor Application Instructions:

Apply PolyKoat GL-80 using a 3/8” synthetic nap, phenolic core roller. PolyKoat can also be spread with a foam or notched squeegee, and then back-rolled. It is recommended to use only 18” wide squeegees and rollers. Apply in a uniform, wet coat. Under application may reduce the product's ability to "self level" and leave undesired texture from the roller. In most cases, only one heavy coat is needed or recommended. If for some reason a second coat is needed or desired, the second coat should be applied within 4 hours of the previous coat.

 

Coverage Rate:

One single coat = 200-250 sq. ft. / gallon... This means a 2gallon kit should be enough product to seal approximately 400-500 sq. ft. (applying directly to the concrete without priming may slightly reduce coverage)

 

How to Install Epoxy Floors Solid Color Floors:

Solid color, high-gloss floors are easy to install with the PolyKoat System! For best results, solid color installations are usually done in a two coat process. Typically, both coats are tinted for maximum uniformity. For added texture and slip-resistance, Surface-Grip is often used in solid color installations. Adding Grip is a great way to reduce slip and falls, reduce gloss/reflection and also hide minor imperfections in the concrete.

If needed, be sure to first fill and repair any cracks with RapidSet-100 before applying PolyKoat. This will create a uniform, un-broken surface for best appearance and maximum durability.

1. Mix product for first coat according to mixing instruction above.

2. Apply first coat of PolyKoat GL-80 using a 3/8” synthetic nap, phenolic core roller. PolyKoat can also be spread with a foam or notched squeegee, and then back-rolled. It is recommended to use only 18” wide squeegees and rollers. Apply in a uniform, wet coat.

3. Allow first coat to cure for 2-4 hours before proceeding with second coat.

4. Mix product for second coat according to mixing instruction above.

5. Apply second coat in same manner as first coat. Apply in a uniform, wet coat. Under application may reduce the product's ability to "self level" and leave undesired texture from the roller. In most cases, two colored coats are all that is needed or recommended, but if additional protection is desired, a third and final clear coat can be applied without color to provide additional protection to the colored coats below. If desired, wait 2-4 hours, then apply third coat in same manner as previous coat.

 

Coverage Rates:

First Colored Coat = 250-300 sq. ft. / gallon (may vary depending on porosity of concrete)
Second Colored Coat = 250-300 sq. ft. / gallon
Optional Clear Third Coat = 250-300 sq. ft. / gallon
Total Project Estimate Rate = approximately 125-150 sq. ft. / gallon... This means a 2gallon kit should be approximately enough product to complete 250-300 sq. ft. of floor. This is based on a two coat application.

 

How to Install Flake Garage Floors Flake and Quartz Floors:

This is where the PolyKoat System really shines! Flake and quartz floors require multiple coats and multiple steps to complete the process. PolyKoat cures FAST and can be re-coated in 4 hours or less, allowing you to now complete a 3 coat system in a single day!

Flake and quartz floors are extremely popular for garages, rest-rooms, automotive service centers and many other spaces where extreme durability, slip-resistance and easy maintenance is a must. These floors may look intimidating, but they are actually very easy to install. There are two methods of installation: a 2 coat process (no primer coat) or a 3 coat process. For best results, we strongly recommend the 3 coat installation process. This process consists of:

Step 1. Apply "primer" base coat, clear or lightly tinted for flake floors and tinted for quartz floors.
Step 2. Apply heavy "broadcast" coat, tinted for flake floors and clear for quartz floors.
Step 3. Immediately cast color-flakes or colored quartz sand into wet "broadcast" coat.
Step 4. Scrape, sweep and remove all excess loose flake or sand on floor.
Step 5. Apply final clear top-coat.

If needed, be sure to first fill and repair any cracks with RapidSet-100 before applying PolyKoat. This will create a uniform, un-broken surface for best appearance and maximum durability.

1. Mix product for first coat according to mixing instruction above. For quartz applications, choose appropriate tint color for the color quartz sand you will be using.

2. Apply first coat of PolyKoat GL-80 using a 3/8” synthetic nap, phenolic core roller. PolyKoat can also be spread with a foam or notched squeegee, and then back-rolled. It is recommended to use only 18” wide squeegees and rollers. The point of this coat is to prime the floor and create a surface with even porosity for the "broadcast" coat.

3. Allow first coat to cure for 2-4 hours before proceeding with "broadcast" coat.

4. Mix product for second coat according to mixing instruction above. For flake applications, choose appropriate tint color for the flake color blend you will be using.

5. Apply second coat in same manner as first coat. Apply in a heavy, uniform, wet coat.

6. Immediately begin broadcasting chips or sand into the wet PolyKoat. For this step it is highly recommended to have a second person to cast chips or sand while the first is applying the coating. Remember, you only have a few minutes before the coating starts to harden. For full broadcast chip floors and all quartz floors, the floor should be COMPLETELY covered with chips or sand. This is VERY important for a uniform appearance. For a full broadcast, it is impossible to apply too many chips or too much sand. This is why we recommend buying more than you think you will need!

7. Allow second coat to cure for 2-4 hours.

8. Use a flat scraper to scrape floor in multiple directions. This will shave off any high edges of the chips and provide a uniform appearance across the space.

9. Sweep and/or vacuum all loose chips or sand from the floor.

10. Apply final clear top-coat in same manner as previous coats. Apply in a heavy, uniform, wet coat. This coat may require more product than previous coats, due to the added texture and porosity of the flakes or sand.

 

Coverage Rates:

Primer Coat = 250-300 sq. ft. / gallon (may vary depending on porosity of concrete)
Broadcast Coat = 200-250 sq. ft. / gallon
Top Coat = 175-200 sq. ft. / gallon
Total Project Estimate Rate = approximately 75 sq. ft. / gallon... This means a 2gallon kit should be approximately enough product to complete 150 sq. ft. of floor. This is based on a three coat application.

Maintenance

 

Once properly applied, surfaces sealed with PolyKoat will require very little maintenance. The surface may periodically require a light cleaning to remove dirt, dust, mud, etc. In most cases, low pressure water or simple mopping is all that is needed for routine cleaning.
