FGI – 410 Concrete Protection Coating

Unique Coatings – Extreme Results

 

Description

FGI - 410 is an extremely unique ultimate performance concrete protection coating. It has yet to be equaled in performance. A 100 percent solids content epoxy coating especially developed for masonry surfaces. FGI-410 is twice as resistant to abrasion as concrete. When concrete floors are poured, most of the excess water exits the slab through the top. This always produces a weak surface due to the high water to cement ratio present on the top of the slab. Furthermore, any bubbles in the concrete work to the top, but are often unable to break free, and thus remain just under the concrete surface. The FGI -410 is a fast- curing coating. The FGI - 410 effectively stops water from coming through the slab. It adheres to the concrete stronger than the concrete, it is virtually impossible to pass water through the coating in either direction. FGI - 410 is designed for adhering to concrete, terrazzo, cinder block, brick, stone, glass, transite, wood, or metal. In addition to being extremely abrasion resistant it finishes to a beautiful decorative surface for walls, floors, patios, stairs, ceilings and equipment of industrial, commercial, institutional, and residential buildings. Also the interior or exterior of tunnels, concrete tanks, silos, elevators, airplane hangers, garage floors etc. The FGI-410 is also self leveling. Outdoor durability and color stability is excellent. FGI-410 is extremely Weather, UV, Chemical, Salt, and Abrasion resistant providing for an unsurpassed durable wear surface with superior adhesion properties that promotes a nearly indestructible coating surface. FGI - 410 saves time and labor and reduces the TOTAL cost of your project

 

Application Methods

FGI - 410 may be applied by brush, roller or spray. Hard finish concrete surfaces should be etched to provide “tooth” for adhesion. Surfaces must be free of grease, oil and other contaminants before acid or mechanical etching. Metal must be free of mill scale, rust, etc. and thoroughly clean off all debris, dirt, and other contaminates. Optimum results are obtained if the surface is dry although entirely satisfactory protection is obtained if the surface is damp and/or wet. Surplus water should be removed to prevent excessive bubbling of the coating.
MIXING: Thoroughly mix (3 to 1 ratio) the base (part "B") with the activator (part "A") for 5 minutes with a power mixer until all streaks and/or lumps disappear and the mixture has uniform color and consistency. Be sure to allow mixing blade to rub on sides and bottom of container to recombine any settling. Because cure time is so rapid no ingestion time is needed before application. Use of thinner increases possibility of sag, reduces dry film thickness and retards cure time. For best results, use just as it comes from the can.
If surface to be coated has chlorine ions, these must be neutralized with Chlor-Rid mixed into the pressure wash water. This is a rare occurrence but usually occurs around salt water. Chlorine ion test will verify.Any overspray and equipment must be cleaned immediately with acetone, toluene, xylene, or MEK.
FGI-410 is 100% solids. Approximate Pot Life: 45 minutes to 1 hour at 70 F to 80 F. To extend the pot life, cool the pail, such as with an ice bath. Curing time: 3 to 4 hours at 80 F to walk on, Complete cure: 12 to 24 hours depending upon temperature. Apply 15 wet mils (.015 inches or 0.38 mm) wet to achieve a final dry mil thickness of 15 mils (0.015 inches or 0.38 mm). FGI-410 will cover approximately 107 square feet (9.94 square meters) per gallon at 15 mils (0.38mm) thickness. The 15 mils can be applied in one coat thus reducing labor cost. Cure time can be accelerated to approximately 30 minutes with the use of a plural component spray system that heats Part A and Part B.
Use in well ventilated area; if not possible, use a NIOSH approved self contained breathing apparatus or vapor filters on a mask. Protective gloves and safety glasses must be worn at all times. Only very high abrasion will remove the coating. Caution: With the extreme adhesion characteristics of this product all safety procedures must be followed.
Customers should consult FGI on all special requirement installations.
