Optimus 6100 WC Nova Bar

Description:  Damp & Wet Condition, 100% Solids Industrial & Commercial Chemical Resistance Epoxy Coating


6100 WC Nova Bar is a 100% solids, advanced technology of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A resin reacted with a modified multifunctional polyamidoamine adduct activator.  The resulting polymer structure is excellent for problematic coating areas  that remain damp or wet.  The 6100 will bond, cure and protect the concrete due to its high tolerance to wet conditions.  The product has outstanding adhesion to wet concrete and sand blasted steel and provides a smooth, glossy, tack free cured film with exceptional corrosion protection.

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 affect 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). Use an Madison primer over filled cracks and voids. 

Do not apply 6100 to floors that have not been properly repaired, treated and primed or that do not have a pH of 7-8.5.   Remove all old coatings.

To apply over existing material/coating:  The existing coating must be abraded to produce a profile of a minimum of 3 mils.  The application over existing materials is only as good as the existing material that is in place.  Such materials should be well bonded and very secure to the substrate.

Top Coats over 6100 should be applied as soon as the 6100 has set enough to allow access to apply additional coatings.  If the 6100 has set and become cured for 8 to 12, the surface may have to be abraded to add profile for bonding of a top coat.
