High-Performance Waterborne Clear Epoxy Floor Sealer
Stop using five different products to cover your residential, commercial, and light industrial concrete work. You need a Versatile sealer that can perform and multi-task your concrete floor sealing and coating needs. 4001 Waterborne Clear Epoxy Floor Sealer utilizes a crosslinking technology that allows it to breathe out moisture emissions found on high MVE (moisture vapor emission) concrete floors and slabs. 4001 Epoxywill give your concrete surface a wet look, high-gloss floor finish while providing a medium to high gloss that will accept medium foot traffic in retail areas. This waterborne clear epoxy coating system is ideal to be used as a tough two-component floor sealer coating over concrete floors. Consider using our 4001 Epoxyas the final topcoat for your next decorative concrete flooring project. Whether it is a polymer modified microtopping, textured microtopping, stamped concrete overlay, or stained decorative concrete, 4001 Epoxy can get the job done and it is easy to apply. It goes on the floor white and then dries to a clear tough film after it has crosslinked.
Breathable Floor Sealer that can be applied to Green Concrete
Our 4001 Waterborne Clear Epoxy Floor Sealer is capable of adhering to and withstanding the effects of moisture vapor emissions from concrete floor slabs. The floor coating sealer system utilizes a proprietary resinous technology that allows the polymer to penetrate deep within the concrete floor slab, where it “wicks” through the water layer and adheres to the walls of the capillary. The resulting cured polymer permanently anchors the coating system to the concrete floor, ensuring reliable adhesion where other systems are questionable. “Green” concrete floors are no problem. “Green” concrete can present a very large problem for many flooring systems that are of otherwise high-quality. During the early stages of cure, concrete contains a very large amount of unhydrated, semi-soluble salts that can act as bond-breakers, and/or haze out a coating. The field of flooring sealer options is significantly narrowed when the application calls for a breathable clear epoxy sealer over freshly poured concrete, leaving little more than cheap waterborne acrylics. 4001 Waterborne Clear Epoxy FloorSealer polymer technology allows it to be used over “green” concrete, as early as one to two hours after pouring. The same proprietary technology that allows the system to penetrate regular cured concrete, also allows it to penetrate through unhydrated salts, to the hydrated portion of the cement and aggregate in the concrete. Best of all, the epoxy flooring sealer does this without hazing, cracking, or delaminating from the fresh concrete.
Used as a Primer
When used as a fast primer the 4001 Epoxy will work as a great primer to concrete floors when subsequent topcoats are applied over it. Solventborne and waterborne coatings can be applied over the 4001 Epoxy as soon as it dries clear; however, if it has been clear for more than an hour, we recommend that you lightly sand or screen the surface to create a surface bond before applying the subsequent floor coating.
