Surface Preparation is the most critical portion of any successful resinous flooring system application. All substrates must be properly prepared as outlined in Epoxy.com's Surface Preparation Guide. Epoxy.com technical service department is pleased to answer any questions.


Epoxy.com Product #488 is a two component material (2 parts A to 1 part B by Vol.). Add Part B to Part A while mixing, using a slow speed mechanical mixer (Jiffy mixer). Mix until a homogeneous mixture is obtained (approximately 3 minutes). Use care to scrape sides and bottom of container to ensure that no unmixed material remains. Do not whip too much air into the material which may result in pinholes or blisters. Do not mix more material than can be used in 10-15 minutes.

Epoxy.com Product #488 will begin to increase in viscosity immediately after mixing and will double in viscosity within 17-20 minutes. Material should be in place at this point.

Immediately after mixing, pour material on floor in a ribbon and spread with a flat trowel or notched squeegee depending on thickness of application. Typical application is 8-12 mils (130-200 sq/gal.). Backroll spread material gently with a short nap mohair roller. Do not over roll and entrap air. Total application time should take no longer than 15 minutes.

Up to 5% solvent (xylene, MEK or similar) may be added at time of mixing to slightly lower viscosity and lengthen pot life.

Epoxy.com Product #488 will be tack-free in 2-2 ½ hours at 70oF and 50% relative humidity. Allow 4 hours between coats if applying more than one coat. Light pedestrian traffic is possible after 4 hours, 24-48 hours before heavy pedestrian or automotive traffic. Epoxy.com Product #488 is highly stain resistant and hot tire resistant after 48 hours.


Clean skin with soap and water. Tools and equipment should be cleaned with xylene or lacquer thinner.


Epoxy.com Product #488 is typically spread at 160 ft2/gallon to yield 8-10 mils. Up to 15 mils is possible in one application but will exhibit a longer set time.


Epoxy.com Product #488 is available in Clear, Epoxy.com Standard (epoxy) Colors and custom colors subject to laboratory approval and increased cost.
