|EPOXOTHERM ® is a two-part epoxy coating, which produces a hard, yet flexible coating film. When totally cured, the coating will have an equivalent insulation value up to four inches of batt insulation when applied at 80 mils dry. This epoxy coating was formulated with several ceramic compounds, and designed to slow conduction from radiant heat sources. EPOXOTHERM ® was designed for use under water or in areas where constant splashing or condensation is a problem. It is resistant to chemicals and solvents, and can be applied to metal, concrete, masonry and wood.
Surface must be clean from oil, tar, rust, grease, salts, and films.
4-6 hours at 70°F (21°C) - 1 hour at 90°F (32°C)
EPOXOTHERM ® can be applied by brush, roller or spray; however, the preferred method is by air or airless sprayer.
MINIMUM SPREAD RATES (mil thickness)
All Surfaces: Apply 1 application of RUSTGRIP ® Or
MOIST METAL GRIP ® @ 200 sqft / gal (18 sqmtr / gal); 8 mils wet
/ 3.67 mils dry (200 microns wet / 97 microns dry) to prime. Then apply 4 applications of EPOXOTHERM ® @ 64 sqft / gal (6 sqmtr / gal); 25 mils wet / 16 mils dry (625 microns wet / 400 microns dry) each coat, as a minimum thickness to stop condensation.
NOTE: When used in exterior coating applications, EPOXOTHERM ® should be top coated with ENAMOGRIP ® white to prevent chalking and loss of gloss.
For insulating pipes from condensation, apply in 1 - 4 coats at 100 sf per gallon 16 mils WFT or 10.21 mils DFT per coat.
For insulating cold pipes from icing, apply in 4 - 8 coats at 100 sf per gallon 16 mils WFT or 10.21 mils DFT per coat.
WFT per coat depends on vertical or horizontal substrate orientation. On a horizontal substrate the maximum WFT is 35 - 40 mils per coat.

• VOC is 298 grams / liter, well under the codes
APPLICATOR SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:
Applicator must, at all times during use, wear a Bureau of Mines-approved, 2-stage (charcoal and cotton) paint spray respirator, designed for removal of organic vapors, or a fresh air-supplied type of respirator. Protective clothing and protective eyewear (goggles) are recommended.
Do not apply over chlorinated rubber or where chlorinated rubber has been. Even after sandblasting, the chlorination can attack the solvents and brittle the coating.
Extreme Condensation or Icing 10 - 15 sf per gallon
All Other Surfaces 100 sf per gallon
Thickness depends on dewpoint differential and surrounding conditions.
NOTE - 1 mil = 1 thousandths of an inch 1/1000"
