PE-100, What Is It?
Aloha! And welcome to another informative product review. Today we are discussing PurEpoxy’s standard epoxy, PE-100, what it is, and what it’s used for.
PE-100 is a solvent-less, two part epoxy coating system. It exhibits very good appearance and chemical and physical properties.
Advantages of PE-100
It’s dense surface is resistant to bacteria and moisture. This in fact makes it easier to clean. You may apply several layers on itself with excellent adhesion. PE-100 contains no solvents with a very low VOC content.
PE-100 3 Gallon Kit
PE-100 comes in a 3 gallon kit. You get two part “A” and one part “B”. That is the mixing ratio. Again, the mixing ratio for PE-100 is: two parts “A” and one part “B”.
PE-100 is used a primer and a finish coat.
PE-100 as a Primer
As a Primer, 1 gallon covers 150 square feet, at 10 mils thick. This means that a three gallon kit covers 450 square feet, at 10 mils thick.
PE-100 as a Finish Coat
You have three options: You can go for a solid color, a flake system or you can go for a metallic system.
PE-100 Solid Colors
When using PE-100 for solid colors, we recommend using it at a thickness of 16 mils. That means using it at 100 sqare feet per gallon, instead of the 150 square feet you get with PE-100 as a Primer.
PE-100 Flake System
When using PE-100 for a flake system, we recommend using it at a thickness of 13 mils. Which gives you 120 square feet per gallon of PE-100.
PE-100 Metallic System
When using PE-100 for a metallic system, we recommend using it at a thickness of 40 mils. That means for every one gallon of PE-100, it’s going to cover just 40 square feet.
PE-100 Working Time
When working with PE-100, you have a pot life of about 10-15 minutes. Then you also have a working time (out of the bucket) of about 40 minutes before it starts to cure.
PE-100 Mixing Time
If you are mixing in pigment like tint base or metallics, you want to mix that pigment with Part “A” for at least 90 seconds.
PE-100 Mixing Time
Mix Part “A” and “B” for at least 90 seconds or more to get a good mixture.
