Optimus 6200 WR

Epoxy Floor Coating Water Reducible 

Product Description
Optimus 6200WR is a water extended epoxy with a special modified amine activator.  The product is very color-fast with better color retention then other epoxy systems. 

The product is a moisture tolerant epoxy, non-toxic and extremely durable with good chemical resistance. This product sets faster than other epoxies and reduces "down time" for the application providing quick turn-around time.  6200 is an easy to use, fast set industrial floor coating that can be clear or pigmented, rolled or sprayed and has little or no odor. 6200 is also a base coat product for the color chip  system from Madison.

The  6200 is often used as a stand-alone product for simple floor coating applications, is excellent for warehouses, factories, clean-rooms and food related industries and is outstanding for ease of application and job clean-up.  The product is light reflective adding a lighter appearance to a warehouse.
6200 has a quick set-up time making this product excellent for areas of high traffic and where next day usage is important.  6200 normally can be walked on in approximately 1 to 4 hours depending on the humidity and temperature of the surface coated.

Unique Characteristics:  6200 is a unique multifunctional system that has components to greatly reduce color shift normally associated with epoxy.  6200 has a long pot life of about 1 hour but a very fast set time when applied to a concrete surface.  This product can be applied over a slightly damp concrete substrate as long as the area has time to fully dry out.

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.  Some applications may require a Moisture Vapor Test before making the coating application on concrete.  
Clean by abrasive “brush-off” blast  or other means of providing a 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.

Moisture Vapor Reduction:  6200 should be applied to concrete surfaces as part of a "systems approach".  Since concrete will out-gas causing pinholes, using the CMW  vapor barrier treatment for the concrete and the 6200 as a primer, pinholes are reduced.  Some conditions, such as extreme out-gassing, may require the application of the product when the temperature is going down – this is up to the applicator to determine what methods must be used per the environmental conditions.

Primer:  Make a prime coat of 6200 using approximately 5% to 10% water to the mixed A & B. Use this as the prime coat.  Allow about 45 minutes to 1 hour before the application of the base coat over the prime coat.  The base coat does not have water added to it. 

Floor Joints:  Clean and fill all control joints and construction joints with Optimus 3020 or per the data sheet.  All moving joints or joints with the potential for movement are usually honored and may or may not be coated over.  In some cases, joints that are over-coated may produce a thin crack where the floor joint is. Expansion joints must be honored and not covered with a coating product.

Masonry:  These substrates must be cured 28 days minimum.  Surface must be dry and clean. Prime concrete and back roll to completely wet and thoroughly penetrate surface to insure that all irregularities are filled and sealed. 

Existing Coatings:  Remove existing coatings prior to primer application.  Dry grind as needed to produce proper profile.

Application:  Add Component A (activator) into Component B. Do not vary proportions.  After A and B are completely mixed, the product may be applied.  Apply the product using a short nap roller, brush or airless spray.  When rolling, make the next coat of product application 90 degrees to the first to assure complete coverage of the surface.

Note:  Once the rolling of the product has been done on the floor do not reach back into product that has begun to cure and attempt to re-roll or a color change will be produced.

Temperature Range: 45°F to 125°F (air and surface) and 5°F above dew point.  Storage & shelf life - one year from shipment date protected between 40º F and 100º F.  Temperature Resistance up to 250°F dry.

Coverage: The average mil thickness is 3-5 mils to 8 mils per coat, achieve a dry film thickness of approximately 8 to 10 mils, more film thickness may be added via additional coats of product as required by the application or installer.  Application mil thickness is predicated on the environment and potential contact to harsh chemicals, temperature and length of time of contact. Do not apply thick coats or cure will greatly extended.

Pot Life:  Approximately 1 hour @ 70º F (mixed two gallon kit).  
Curing time: 1 to 4 hours @ 70º F.   Full cure in 3 days @ 70º F. 

Curing times: Air circulation and/or heat curing may be used to increase drying speed. *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 amount of ventilation and air circulation and relative humidity.

Finish:  Medium-High Gloss, texture will vary due to substrate.
Caution:  Flattening and minor color change may occur with extended exposure to sunlight.

Inspection:  Check for desired dry  thickness and for pinholes, holidays, bare areas, etc. before placing into operation/service. 

Note:  Do not apply to floors that have not been properly repaired or do not have a pH of 7-8.5.
