Optimus 6010R

Fast Set Industrial Epoxy Primer – Grout - Coating 

Product Description

Optimus 6010R is a 100% solids, advanced technology of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A resin reacted with a modified multiple ring cycloaliphatic amine adduct activator, advanced curing agent system.  The resulting polymer structure is high strength, very adhesive, fast set, moisture tolerant, extremely tough with superior chemical resistance to corrosive waters and acids.  This is a versatile multi-use product.  6010R is a very quick setting, rapid reacting polymer system designed for cool condition applications on airfield, slab-on-grade floors, secondary containment prime coats, etc.
Airfield Grout:  As a grout the 6010R meets the FAA-P606 requirements for bonding in-pavement airfield light fixture bases into concrete pavement, kerfs, docking systems for taxi ways and landing zones.  The product is also used for rapid repair in damp conditions on exterior concrete slabs, airfields, etc. or on interior floor applications where the concrete surfaces have been damaged and aggregate is exposed.  
Primer:  6010R is used on cleaned surfaces for bridge joint applications prior to the application of Madison polyurea joint products.  6010R is part of the product system for fast set spray polyurea materials where substrate conditions require a low viscosity penetrating 100% solids moisture tolerant primer that is fast set.  The 6010R is an excellent primer for the Madison Nova Bar barrier protective coating systems.

This product coating is designed to provide penetration, wetting and sealing of substrates and surfaces as a fast set,  high quality primer and cross link to various polyurea and urethane top coats when properly and timely applied. Cured film conforms to USDA requirements for coatings in incidental contact with food.

Preparation: Concrete must have a minimum 28 day cure prior to application.  Remove any curing agent, form release materials, oils, wax, moisture or any material that may effect bonding.  *Perform a Moisture Vapor Test before making the coating application on concrete.  Clean by abrasive “brush-off” blast.  Provide rough profile minimum 2 mils.   Review ASTM D4259 Abrading Concrete and ASTM F1869 Measuring Moisture Vapor Emission.  Seal/repair all bug-holes, cracks and spalls, see Madison data sheets on 820, 4010 and 3020 (joints). Large expansion joint wall surfaces – brush-off blasting for 2-3 mil profile.

Moisture Vapor Reduction:  6010R (as a coating) should be applied to concrete surfaces as part of a "systems approach" when used as a primer for various epoxy or polyurea floor coatings.  Use 6010R with CMW moisture vapor reduction product 24 to 48 hours before the 6010R primer application.  Consideration should be given to the rise and fall of temperatures during applications,  i.e., some applications produce better results when the product is applied after peak temperatures and the temperature is falling. 

Priming:  6010R is applied several hours before a top coat application.  It is best to apply a suitable top coat as soon as the 6010R has set and will allow access for additional coating applications. Top coat application window 1 to 4 hours.  Avoid heavy mil thickness of primer, maintain mil profile with primer.  Concrete:  Primer for concrete and masonry Must penetrate and wet the surface thoroughly.  Priming concrete may require 3 to 5 mils depending on the porosity of the concrete.

Mixing: Jiffy mixer - 650 rpm drill motor to mix product.  Mix until a uniform blend of the two part is evident after adding part B into part A.  Do not change the proportions. Mix completely for approximately one to two minutes.   Power stir - continue agitation during the applications. Avoid mixing air into the blend.  Mix part B before use to assure pigment is in suspension.  Mix at 2:1 ratio.  6010R is fast set and must not be left in the mixing bucket or it will set very fast.  After the product is mixed, pour out and squeegee quickly then back roll to desired primer thickness.

Joint Application Primer: Small amounts of product are mixed, mix only what can be used in a short time.  Work into the surface to be primed.  Polyurea joint product can be applied right after priming.

Grout: Pre-measure aggregates for grout mixes.  Grout blends; 1 part mixed product to 2 – 2.5 parts selected aggregate for pour-ability.  Pressure pad grouts use high aggregate content, ratio is dependent on the aggregate use.  Observe product and aggregate temperature and environmental temperature.  Hot or warm conditions 6010R will set very quickly in volume – several minutes. Mix and pour immediately in warm conditions.

Temperature Range: 40°F to 90°F (air and surface) and 5°F above dew point.  For warmer application temperatures use 6010S medium set, slower version for warmer conditions.

Brush/Roller: Use short hair natural bristle. Roller 3/8 inch nap synthetic.

Airless: Graco or equal.  Pump ration 30:1 or higher, 206-718 gun with fluid tip of .021 or larger orifice size with a Reverse-A-Clean tip, 3/8 I.D. or larger high pressure solvent resistant fluid line, ½ inch I.D. or larger air supply line.  Continuous air source capable of 80 to 100 psi inbound pressure at pump.

Conventional spray:  Binks or equal.  Pressure material pot with mechanical agitator, dual regulators, air gauges, oil and moisture separators.  No. 18 gun (external mix), 67 fluid nozzle, 65 fluid needle, 67 PB air cap, heavy duty fluid spring, Teflon fluid packing, ½ inch I.D. or larger high solvent resistant fluid line and 3/8 inch I.D. or larger air supply line.  
Continuous air source capable of 20 cfm or more at 80 psi per nozzle and 60 psi to the pot. 

Thinning: Not required.

Application: Apply mixed product in even coat and insure uniform mil thickness.  Apply second coat in opposite direction to assure coverage of pin holes. 

Mil Thickness:  Primer application mil thickness is predicated on the substrate surface porosity and profile.  Over shot blasted slab surface a 2 mil profile, see preparation statement this data sheet.

Reapply: Topcoat 1 to 4 Hours or as soon as the product has set and is becoming tack free.  Full cure 24 to 48 hours @ 70ºF.      Accelerate cure by using heaters or increase environmental temperature for faster cure.   Recoating/repair; If the primer has reached complete cure and hardness, or if subjected to extended exposure to sunlight, uniformly abrade the surface and feather the edges.  The surface must be roughen sufficiently to provide a profile adequate to insure a mechanical bond. 

Curing times: Heat curing may be used to increase drying speed and resistant properties.  Curing times are significantly shorter for higher temperatures or lower thickness and longer for lower temperatures or higher thickness.  Times are affected by method of application, the quantity of thinner used, the amount of ventilation and air circulation and relative humidity, etc.

Inspection:  Check for desired dry film thickness and for pinholes, holidays, bare areas, etc. before placing additional coats or top coats over primer.

Packaging:  Three gallon and fifteen gallon kits and drum kits
