Epoxy 600 can be applied by roller, brush or metal edge squeegee. When using a squeegee it is best to follow immediately behind with a 1/4″ – 3/8″ nap paint roller to even out any squeegee marks. Keep a wet edge and do not roll into an area once it has begun to set up to avoid color differences. Temperature and humidity conditions affect the cure and tack free times of this material. Warm, dry conditions speed the cure and cool, damp conditions will lengthen the cure time. Recoat within 12 – 24 hours to achieve the best chemical bond. After 24 hours it will be necessary to sand the Epoxy 600 with an orbital sander and #100 grit sandpaper to achieve a physical bond.
For large applications: It is important not to use the same mixing bucket for more than 1 hour and to change roller covers as needed. This will avoid leaving lumps on the floor from material starting to set up in the bucket and on the roller.
As a coating over concrete: Before applying the Epoxy 600 over an indoor concrete surface, it is recommended to apply Concrete Solutions WB Epoxy Clear as a prime coat. Apply both by squeegee followed by a 1/4″ nap paint roller.
As a coating over Color Quartz or Color Flake applications: Apply Epoxy 600 using a metal edge squeegee (available from Concrete Solutions) followed by a 1/4″ nap paint roller. While one person is spreading with the squeegee to the desired thickness, another person wearing spiked shoes should be back rolling over the Epoxy 600 to help even out any squeegee marks. Allow to dry for a minimum of 12 – 18 hours before opening to traffic. Do not apply in areas exposed to sunlight.
