This chart is intended as an aid in evaluating the performance of these systems in various chemical exposures. The data is intended as a guide only. Some chemicals, such as strong oxidizing acids (nitric or chromic) may leave surface stains in the finished system. This is a surface blemish and does not cause system failure. In severe or combination exposures, a sample should be tested under simulated use conditions. Product data is revised as needed to reflect the most recent technology and field experience. Consult Epoxy.com (Epoxy System Inc.) for current printing of literature and updated chemical resistance information
Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS are composed of 100% solids
vinyl ester resins filled with a variety of graded quartz, silica, or ceramic fillers
which can be modified to create the best design mix for ideal performance.
Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS are the standard for heavy duty flooring systems protecting the substrate from extreme chemical exposure, impact, abrasion, and severe thermal shock.
Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS are available in Grey or
Brick Red. Custom colors are available subject to laboratory approvals, minimum
quantities, lead time for production and increased cost.
Surfaces must be clean and sound. Remove all dirt, laitance,
grease, curing compounds and other foreign matter by sandblasting, or mechanical abrasion.
Remove water and dust from all surfaces with an oil-free air blast immediately prior to
application of compound.
Installation procedures on all Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS
are to be followed without exception. These include subfloor preparation and
prime, body, and finish coat application as specified. Specific procedures
depend on the type of system chosen Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS require multiple coats and skilled installers
approved by Epoxy.com.
Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause eye or skin irritation.
If contact occurs, wash immediately and seek medical help. Use safety glasses with
side shields and wear protective rubber or polyethylene gloves. See MSDS on the material
for more details and precautions before using.
Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS must be allowed to properly
cure for maximum resistance. Newly installed systems must be cured a minimum of 18 to 24
hours before wash-down. Seven days are normal curing times for maximum resistance.
Regulated spill wash-down and removal will prolong
service life of Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS. Epoxy.com VINYL ESTER SYSTEMS are not self
