1 Gallon (250 sq/ft)

Norklad Preprime WB is a two component water based epoxy coating that provides an excellent primercoat for various flooring systems. Preprime WB is clear in color to work well with any colored topcoat. It is low in solids to provide superior substrate penetration. This product has a tack free time of about 5 to 8 hours. Therefore, if timed correctly, it is possible to apply your primer coat and color coat in the same day. Norklad Preprime WB is recommended for priming or coating concrete, wood or masonry.

CURE SCHEDULE: (70°F)

pot life – 1 gallon volume …..………………..……………...…..... 1.0 – 1.5 hours

tack free (dry to touch)………………………………………………..………… 5-8 hours

recoat or topcoat.....………………………………..………………………..... 7-10 hours

light foot traffic...……………………………………………………...……....16-24 hours

full cure (heavy traffic)...........................………………………………....2-7 days

APPLICATION TEMPERATURE:

55-90 degrees F with relative humidity below 85%

PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degree F. Keep from freezing.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface preparation will vary according to the type of complete system to be applied. For a one or two coat thin build system (3-10 mils dry) we recommend either mechanical scarification or acid etching until a suitable profile is achieved. All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. A test should be made to determine that the concrete has an appropriate vapor barrier. This can be done by placing a 4’ X 4’ plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate does not show signs of eventual hydrostatic pressure problems that may later cause disbonding. However, this product can be applied to a damp floor as long as there are no standing puddles.

PRODUCT MIXING: This product comes pre-packaged by weight. Kits should be mixed in their entirety. If partial kits are to be used, refer to the front of this technical data for proper weight mix ratios. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. This product is an emulsion product and should be mixed well before using. If you choose to mix by hand, it is recommended to mix thoroughly for several minutes.

PRODUCT APPLICATION: The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. Apply material with relative humidity below 85%. When the end of the pot life has been reached, you will find that the material becomes hard to apply and will actually tend to roll back up onto the roller. Do not try to continue application when the coating has reached this step. Applications made at different times with differing environmental conditions, may show slight variations in gloss. After applying thin coat you may notice blotchiness this is normal as the coating soaks up into the substrate at varying thicknesses.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING: When topcoating this product, you must first be sure that all of the solvents and water have evaporated from the coating during the curing process. Waiting a minimum of 5 hours is a good guideline. However, it is best to test the coating before your next coat. This can be done by pressing on the coating with your thumb to verify that no fingerprint impression is left. If no impression is created, then the recoat or topcoat can be started. Always remember that colder temperatures will require more cure time for the product before recoating or topcoating can commence. Before topcoating, check the coating to insure no epoxy blushes were developed (a whitish, greasy film or deglossing). If a blush is present, it must be removed prior to topcoating or recoating. A standard type detergent cleaner can be used to remove any blush. Many epoxy overlays and coatings as well as urethanes are compatible for use as a topcoat for this product.

LIMITATIONS:

* For best results use a 1/4” or 3/8” nap roller.

* Light or bright colors (white, light gray, etc.) may require multiple coats achieve a satisfactory hide, depending on the porosity of the substrate.

SURFACES: New Surfaces: Concrete, Plaster and Masonry - Cure at least 30 days before painting. pH must be 10.0 or lower. Remove laitance and roughen unusually slick poured or precast concrete by acid etching, sandsweeping, grinding, or shot-blasting the floor. If substrate has been washed allow to dry overnight. Remove loose aggregate. Fill voids and cracks in areas of concrete with epoxy filler or patching compound. In moisture prone areas, prime with this product or substitute to achieve best penetration. Drywall - Prime with this product or suitable waterborne primer. Wood - Prime with this product or prime with suitable waterborne epoxy primer. Steel - Prime with waterborne epoxy primer or preprime epoxy. Galvanized Metal and Aluminum - Prime with waterborne epoxy primer . Glazed Brick, Ceramic Tile and Fiberglass - Scuff sand and prime with waterborne epoxy primer. Previously Painted Surfaces: The waterborne components of this product generally allow use over most old coatings. Old coatings should be tested for lifting. If they lift, remove them by chemical or mechanical means. Wash to remove contaminants. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Dull glossy areas by light sanding. Remove sanding dust. Remove loose paint. Mix and begin painting.
