|Recommended as a resin for restoration of concrete floors, sumps, drainage ditches, loading docks, tanks, ramps, storage silos, pump pads, and other concrete structures subjected to extreme chemical attack. PC-1500 is used frequently in secondary containment areas as a coating as well as a trowel down system. PC-1500 is also used as a resin with fiber glass reinforced systems. PC-1500 is used as a coating in “seed-in” systems. PC-1500 is also used as a “neat” coating.
Ideal for most type services in chemical processing plants, pulp and paper mills, sewage and waste water treatment facilities, fertilizer plants, petroleum refineries, electric generating stations, coal handling operations, food processing, etc.
|Gulf Coast Paint Mfg., Inc. recommends four types of surface preparation. Any one of the four sur face preparations may be sufficient or a combination of the four may be required depending on the condition of the concrete surface.
1. High Pressure Wet Abrasive Blast Cleaning
High pressure water blast with sand injection on all surfaces to remove all concrete laitance, contaminants, and other foreign deposits to provide a sound, clean surface. Use clean, dry air to blow down these areas to remove excessive moisture.
2. Acid Etch
Random pH readings using distilled water should be made to insure all contaminants have been removed. A final pH between 7.0 and 8.5 is acceptable.
NOTE: Do not allow the Clean & Etch solution to dry on the floor before flushing off because dirt, etc., can be redeposited in the pores of the concrete.
3. Vacuum Blast
4. Dry Abrasive Blast
In all cases of surface preparation, the pH should be checked. A pH reading of 7.0 to 8.5 is acceptable. Also, a “Water Dissipation Test” should be made on random areas of the floor to determine that the proper degree of porosity has been achieved. A “Vapor Barrier Test” should also be run on the concrete. Consult Gulf Coast Paint Mfg. for specifics on testing. New concrete must be cured at least a minimum of 28 days before applying a coating. All laitance, efflorescence, chemical contaminants, grease, oil, and other foreign material must be removed. The prepared surface must be clean, dry and structurally sound.
Do not mix PC-1500 until surface has been primed with PC-155 or PC-1702 PC-1500 Base and Hardener should be stored at or above 75 F for 24 hours prior to mixing to insure normal viscosity. Poly-Crete PC-1500 is prepared by mixing 2 parts Base (Part A) to 1 part Hardener (Part B) by volume with an explosion proof variable speed drill with a Jiffy mixer for approximately 2-3 minutes. Immediately after mixing pour material out of container and spread out on primed substrate. The pot life is 15-20 minutes at 75 F.
|Application Procedure & Cure Time|
PC-1500 must be applied over the PC-155 or PC-1702 while they have a slight tack. PC-1500 can be applied as an aggregate filled epoxy mortar by hand trowel. Apply pressure to “compact” material to a dense, monolithic topping. PC-1500 can be squeegeed for self-leveling, thin film coating and reinforced floors. PC-1500 is also used as a 16-40 mil coating. A porcupine roller is recommended to break any air bubbles in the PC-1500 when rolling. For exterior use or higher film build, seed dry PC- 1500 with fine aggregate. For use as a vertical coating, contact Gulf Coast Paint for recommendations.Cure Time
The aggregate filled epoxy mortar has an “open” time of approximately 15-20 minutes at 75 F. Immediately after mixing a batch it should be placed and spread onto the surface to be protected. Highly filled “mortar” will be ready for foot traffic in 4-5 hours. Self-leveling slurries will be ready for foot traffic in 6-8 hours and fork lift traffic in 24-48 hours. In aggressive areas, a 16-40 mil dry sealer coat of PC-1500 is recommended to top coat mortars and self leveling slurries. A 16-40 mil coat will be ready for foot traffic in 8-12 hours.
|Poly-Crete PC-1500 is not a fire hazard; the flash point is 300 F. However, under conditions of fire it will burn and release potentially toxic fumes. The Base portion is relatively inert physiologically. The Hardener portion is corrosive and contains amines and related materials. These can cause irritation and possibly chemical burns to the skin and eyes. This is also true for mixtures of Base and Hardener. Wear safety glasses, gloves, and protective clothing when using Poly-Crete PC-1500. This product is sold without warranty as to performance expressed or implied. Users are urged to make their own tests to determine the suitability for their particular conditions.
