W-80 Epoxy Pigmented Wall Coating


Product Overview

W-80 consist of a high viscosity, nonylphenol-free, epoxy resin (E2W) and a thickened, cycloaliphatic amine reactant (H3). This combination achieves a rheology that makes it easy to spread but also fast to return to its resting state.


W-80 is most often used to coat vertical substrates that require a high-build, high-performance, material that will not run or sag. It can also be used as a pigmented grout coat on aggregate-filled mortar on coving and as a base and saturant coat for imbedding fiberglass and carbon-fiber sheeting.


The preparation method for each project is determined by a full understanding of the substrate to be coated, the chemistry of the coating system being used, the coating system thickness, and numerous other factors. The coating installer should fully read and understand ICRI Guideline NO.03732 and OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1153 before starting preparatory work. The aim, of preparing a substrate for coating applications, is to roughen the surface, remove weak layers, contaminants, dirt, debris and present a solid, clean, dry substrate for the primer.

Description Results Notes
Kit Yield in Gallons 1.5, 3 Material can be supplied in larger packaging upon request and with minimum quantities
Number of Components 2 1-2 gallon container of Part A and 1-1 gallon container of Part B
Mix Ratio Liquids by Volume 2:1 It is always preferred to mix the entire kit, whenever possible, to avoid off-ratio mixtures
Ideal Application Temperatures  60F-90F Verify that substrate temperature is above 5 degrees of dewpoint during application and cure of material to avoid a potential amine blush
Mixed Viscosity in cP@25C/77F 4800 Warmer temperatures will reduce viscosity and lower temperatures will increase viscosity
Gel Time 50 min. Warmer temperatures will decrease gel time and lower temperatures will increase gel time
Dry to Touch 5 Hours Warmer temperatures will reduce time and colder temperatures will increase time
Through Dry 10 Hours Warmer temperatures will reduce time and colder temperatures will increase time
Dry to Walk 12 Hours Warmer temperatures will reduce time and colder temperatures will increase time
Dry to Lightly Use 24 Hours Warmer temperatures will reduce time and colder temperatures will increase time
Full Cure 7 Days Warmer temperatures will reduce time and colder temperatures will increase time
Shore Hardness at 24 hours D65 Warmer temperatures will increase hardness
Shore Hardness at 7 days  D78 Warmer temperatures will shorten time to reach full hardness
Gloss @ 60 Degree Angle 85-90 Applying material close to dew point will decrease gloss and may result in an amine blush
VOC’s of Mixed Material  <50g/L EPA Method 24
Color Scale per ASTM D1500 .5-1.0 Clear to slightly amber before filler is introduced
Solids by Volume Mixed 100%
Storage 60F-90F Store material between 60-90 degrees F in a protected dry location.
Odor Very Subtle Measuring odor offensiveness is difficult so experience with chemicals has been consulted here
Application Thickness in Mils 8-12 mils depending on porosity of substrate
Disposal Dispose of  material, containers, solvents, etc. per Federal, State and local guideline, rules and laws
Available Colors White, Light Gray and Warm Sun
Mixing & Installation Combine all of part A and B into a single container, large enough to accept the entire kit. Mix at 350 RPM for 2-3 minutes using an appropriate mixing blade. Make sure to scrape any unmixed material off the sides of the mix vessel. Take care not to introduce excessive air during mixing. Pour mixed content into a large rolling pan, if rolling vertically, and roll with a 9″ wide, 5/8″ nap roller cover.  If using as a floor coating or grout-coat, pour material onto the floor and squeegee, making sure to apply even pressure so as to force material into the pores and cavities. Backroll as needed to even out application. Recoat within 24 hours. Clean tools with a solvent similar to Xylene or Acetone.
