Arizona Polymer Flooring (APF) –
High Performance Coatings
Polyurethane 100 is a two component, high solids aliphatic polyurethane. This product offers a remarkable combination of performance properties not found in other polymer coatings. Polyurethane 100 produces protective films which are hard, flexible and very impact resistant. These coatings feature high abrasion and scratch resistance, exterior durability, easy soil release and excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals. For exterior applications, a UV stabilizer package is incorporated to insure long term chalk resistance and gloss retention. A special accelerator is available when rapid project turnaround is required.
Polyurethane 100 has been designed as a high performance top coat in various protective
coating and seamless flooring applications. It provides maximum cleanability and stain
resistance when used as a finish coat in color chip flooring or epoxy-quartz flooring. This coating
is ideally suited for clean-room floors, automotive repair facilities, aircraft hangars and other high
wear areas requiring resistance to fuels and chemicals. When used as a finish coat in wall
coating systems, anti-graffiti properties are greatly enhanced.
Polyurethane 250 is a two component, low viscosity acrylic urethane. It is used as a
primer/sealer over a variety of surfaces. The use of special solvents and adhesion promoters
gives this material excellent penetration and adhesion to minimally profiled concrete.
Polyurethane 250 is U.V. stable for use in exterior applications, cures rapidly and is easily
recoated with both solvent-based and water-based polyurethanes. When used as a finish coat,
this material gives a hard, high gloss surface that offers excellent stain resistance and easy
cleanability. Compared to solvent-based acrylic sealers, Polyurethane 250 offers substantial
improvements in initial gloss, gloss retention and overall performance. Polyurethane 250 is
available in a satin finish if a lower gloss is desired. A special version of this material is available
to meet the 50 grams/liter VOC limit in California.
Polyurethane 250 has been designed for use over concrete, acid stained surfaces, and various
types of architectural concrete. Its performance as a paver sealer is unexcelled. It is especially
suitable over acid stained concrete because it is unaffected by pH drifts that can affect the
adhesion of other types of primers. When used over acid stains or integrally colored concrete, it
gives color enhancement similar to solvent acrylic sealers. Polyurethane 250 can also be used
as a tie coat over difficult to adhere to surfaces such as polyester urethane. When used as a
finish coat in vehicle areas, it resists tire tracking and provides easy soil release. Although
abrasion resistance to heavy foot traffic far exceeds single component materials, the best
performance in these areas is achieved with polyester urethanes such as Polyurethane 100,
Polyurethane 100 VOC or Polyurethane 501.
Polyurethane 501 is a high solids, two component, water-based aliphatic polyurethane. This
unique material provides performance properties equal to conventional solvent-based catalyzed
urethanes without the associated health and environmental problems. Polyurethane 501 meets
the 50 grams per liter California VOC limits. It offers substantial performance improvements over
first generation catalyzed water-based polyurethanes, including higher film build capabilities,
improved chemical resistance and resistance to hot tire staining.
Polyurethane 501 gives hard, durable coatings that feature good gloss, easy cleanability and
superior abrasion resistance. Resistance to yellowing from U.V. light is excellent. For exterior
desert applications, a special UV absorber package can be incorporated to ensure long-term
chalk resistance and gloss retention.
Polyurethane 501 has been developed as a high performance finish coat for various seamless
flooring, coating, and architectural concrete applications where odor cannot be tolerated. It is the
ideal top coat for areas that require maximum gloss retention, ease of cleaning, and resistance to
heavy foot traffic. Typical areas of application would include clean rooms, hospitals, concrete
counter tops and high traffic retail areas. Polyurethane 501 is also suitable for aircraft hangars,
automotive repair facilities and garage floors. It is available in a satin finish.
Epoxy 100 is a two component water-based epoxy system that features ease of application, very
low odor and excellent overall coating performance. This material cures blush free over a wide
range of temperatures and adheres tenaciously to a variety of substrates including damp or wet
concrete. Because of its affinity for moisture and inherent alkalinity resistance, Epoxy 100 may
be used over green concrete with proper surface preparation.
Epoxy 100 is used as a general purpose coating for concrete floors and as a primer under epoxy,
polyurethane and acrylic materials. The raw material package has a 30 year history of success
as a concrete coating. Epoxy 100 is recommended for coating warehouse and factory floors,
coating automotive repair facilities, residential garage floors and for many other commercial and
industrial maintenance applications. Because of its ease of application, Epoxy 100 is an excellent
choice for do-it-yourself floor coating projects.
Epoxy 200 is a two component water-based epoxy with excellent adhesion and rapid cure times. Its unique chemistry provides short recoat times and good low-temperature curing. This material has little odor, applies easily and adheres to damp concrete.
Epoxy 200 was designed for use as a fast curing primer under epoxy, acrylic, polyurethane and
polyurea materials. It may also be used as a base coat in fast turnaround color chip systems.
Recoat times range from 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on film thickness, curing conditions
and the type of top coat used. Epoxy 200 is ideally suited as a primer over properly neutralized
interior acid stains where odor cannot be tolerated. Epoxy 200 primer with Polyurethane 100 or
Polyurethane 501 top coats may be accomplished in one trip to the jobsite. Fewer trips to the
jobsite result in reduction of labor costs.
Epoxy 400 is a low viscosity, 100% solids resin system used in a variety of flooring applications
including high build coatings, aggregate-filled flooring and decorative epoxy pebble applications.
This material cures blush-free and provides an outstanding balance of physical strength, flexibility
and chemical resistance. Epoxy 400 has excellent clarity for use over color quartz aggregate and
decorative architectural concrete. The pigmented material features high pigment loading for good
substrate hide and color consistency when roller applied.
Epoxy 400 has considerably lower viscosity than most competitive products providing improved
handling at cooler temperatures and exceptional troweling characteristics. The lower viscosity
allows for the addition of fine silica fillers for easy application of “slurry” type floors. A fast cure
hardener is available when cold weather cure down to 40°F or accelerated room temperature
cure is required. A special hardener is available when adhesion to damp concrete is required.
The versatility of Epoxy 400 makes it ideal as a primer, finish coat or aggregate binder in a wide
variety of flooring applications including manufacturing facilities, warehouses, correctional
facilities, loading docks and other areas requiring high performance flooring. Epoxy 400 is not
recommended for food processing areas, commercial kitchens, wineries or other areas that
receive constant corrosive exposure. Epoxy 600 or 900 should be selected for these applications.
Bleached Aluminum Oxide is a slip-resistant aggregate for industrial flooring. This product is available in 12, 24, 36, 60 or 90 grit.
Super Base Neutralizer is a solution of Potassium Hydroxide and water designed for neutralizing acidic surfaces after acid etching or acid staining. It is more effective than ammonia and has less odor. Add 8 oz. to 4 gallons water and apply to surface using a sprinkling can. Scrub well using a stiff bristled broom and rinse before the solution can dry on the surface.
