Uroflex™ 61 has been proven in many aggressive enclosed, immersive, and partially opened environments. Uroflex™ 61 performs in areas subject to chemical attack, erosion, and overall corrosion.
Ideally suited as a protective coating/lining solution for:
- Water and sewer collection, distribution, and treatment structures, tanks, pipes, stations, manholes, etc. (ultra-high hydrogen sulfide [H2S] resistance [+600ppm] and resistant to sulfuric byproduct)
- Joint sealing
- Seamless and sealed coating & lining
- Protect from corrosion of steel and concrete, and more
The success of any coating application is directly proportional to the completeness of the substrate preparation and the care the application crew puts into the application. Surface must be clean and sound. Remove all dust, contaminants, grease, curing compounds, rust, impregnation, waxes, foreign particles, and disintegrated materials from the surface, in order to achieve a clean and profiled surface. Concrete: Prepare the concrete by abrasive blasting, high pressure water cleaning, and/or approved mechanical method to achieve clean, sound, and profiled concrete. Prepare concrete in accordance with SSPC-SP 13/NACE No. 6. “Surface Preparation of Concrete.”Although priming is not required, in some cases when suspecting excessive moisture vapor transmission (MVT), out-gassing, or other impediments – an Epoxytec recommended primer may be considered.Steel: Before preparing steel, please inspect and remove oil, grease, or other contaminants – “Solvent Cleaning” (SSPC-SP1) may be required. Remove all sharp peaks, including weld spatter. Abrasive blasting (or other approved mechanical methods) must be used in order to achieve a clean surface with a minimum profile of 3 mils. Stripe coat all edges and peaks with an Epoxytec recommended primer. To prevent flash rusting, consider the use of an Epoxytec recommended primer.Wood:Remove all grease, oil, dirt or other foreign matter by solvent or detergent washing. Prepare wood surface by abrasive sanding and washing (allow to dry and prime using an Epoxytec recommended primer).
Mix 1-to-1 by volume and be aware of pot life (higher temperature and mass accelerates pot life). Options: Brush, rollers, squeegee, airless/air-assisted airless, and/or plural component spray airless/air-assisted airless equipment. Heated lines and guns could be used, but not required. When possible, Epoxytec recommends Uroflex™ 61 as a two-coat system. NOTE: If spraying, Epoxytec recommends at minimal the use of a .023” orifice spray tip or greater, 64:1 ratio spray pump or greater, 3/8” hoses, with 1/4” whip. Other options available: Epoxytec EZ-Spray System (disposable cartridge spraying).
Uroflex™ 61 can be applied onto a cementitious surface at 15 mils (minimum) to 25 mils (maximum by roller/brush) or 65 mils (maximum by spray) per coat at 77F. For a total coating thickness exceeding 25 mils (by roller/brush) or 65 mils (by spray), multiple coats are necessary. Uroflex™ 61 can be applied onto a metallic surface at 8 mils (minimum) to 15 mils (maximum by roller/brush) or 25 mils (maximum by spray) per coat at 77F. For a total coating thickness exceeding 15 mils (by roller/brush) or 25 mils (by spray), multiple coats are necessary. Note: Uroflex™ 61 has self-leveling properties and will pull back from profile peaks and settle into the valleys as it levels; therefore, if the substrate has peaks, take precautions as edge retention may prove challenging.
|Storage & Handling|| |
Shelf life: 12 months, sealed. Store in a dry area away from direct sunlight. The material should be conditioned to between 75º F and 90º F before use.
Epoxytec Uroflex 61 is a two component, 100% solid urethane-modified-epoxy (UME) hybrid coating and/or lining system specifically designed for utilization in potable, drinking water environments.
Epoxytec Uroflex 61 is a 100% solid, medium to high build, urethane-modified-epoxy (UME) coating and liner. Uroflex 61 is certified by UL to NSF/ANSI Standard 61. Uroflex 61 is a high-build, self-leveling coating system incorporating a high degree of flexural modulus. Adheres impressively well to concrete, steel, and wood. Uroflex 61 is applicator friendly and easy to apply; conveniently produced in a one-to-one mix ratio by volume. Uroflex 61 is “green” formulated, environmentally friendly, 100% solid (no VOCs, no solvent) – UL certified to ANSI/NSF-61. Uroflex 61 has been designed to specifically protect, seal, and outperform in environments, whether immersed or non-immersed, which are susceptible to movement, corrosive exposure, microbial and chemical attack, joint infiltration, vibration, impact, while being tolerant to high levels of moisture and humidity during application. Uroflex 61 is a urethane-modified-epoxy (UME) coating. This means is that it possesses the superior adhesion, tolerance and strength of an epoxy, combined with the flexibility (38% elongation), gloss, UV tolerance and impact resistance of urethane – combined as one technology. Because Uroflex 61 can be applied by brush, roller, or spray; it provides applicators tremendous usability and ease of application. It is self-priming, so there is no concern for logistical primer timing and it ties back into itself indefinitely.
