Clear coatings and clear epoxies - Info you need to know

 

1) All epoxies yellow in UV (more on UV affects on epoxy - CLICK HERE). This includes both clear epoxies and pigmented epoxies. Clear epoxies turn yellow or golden colored. Blue epoxies turn greenish when they yellow. In short, epoxies are not color stable. This has to do with the chemistry of epoxies (CLICK HERE). All epoxies will yellow, some quicker than others, but all will suffer from UV yellowing and UV breakdown and deterioration. UV blockers CANNOT be added to epoxies. Anyone that claims they have a non yellowing and/or UV resistant epoxy is either not telling you the truth or stupid when it comes to knowledge about epoxies. Do not deal with them or the companies they represent! The best fix for UV issues with epoxy is to either use them indoors or cover them with pigments top coat paints that will block the UV. UV blockers CAN be added to one or two part polyurethanes, but with a few exceptions this is not done. The UV blocking additives, which must be clear for use in clear coatings, are expensive and would generally price the product out of the marketplace. Assume that any clear coat product you purchase, even expensive ones, do NOT of significant amounts of UV protecting chemicals added to them. There are exceptions. See below.


2) UV blockers and absorbers can be added to one and two part non-epoxies, but rarely are, as mentioned above. The most obvious exception is automotive clear coat. Given the price of cars and the competition between car manufacturers, a few bucks more in the paint job is nothing. Traditional (the real stuff) marine spar varnish (like our India Spar Varnish - not for sale in California - more on varnish in general - CLICK HERE) has natural UV blockers. That said, spar varnish is not clear. It is amber in color - although when brushed on  in a few thin coats, it looks pretty much clear except over white surfaces. Only sold in quarts - coverage is about 75 sf per quart.


3) Acrylic Poly UV Plus is our two part poly especially formulated for me/Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc with MASSIVE amounts of UV blockers and absorbers. It a LPU coating (more on LPU coatings CLICK HERE) and very similar to auto clear coat, but cheaper. Two part LPU coatings have high solvent levels (very stinky) and NOT user friendly to apply. You just don't brush or roll it one (except on an epoxy floor) and get a perfect, invisible, flawless finish. It is usually sprayed on or applied manually via a method called "roll and tip." As you might expect, Acrylic Poly UV Plus is not for sale in California. We carry this product mostly to keep epoxy floors from yellowing and into which the colored chips in epoxy / colored chip floors are applied (except for very low end applications where the chips are sprinkled directly upon the pigmented epoxy paint). See link on epoxy chip floors - CLICK HERE.


4) Our clear epoxies are generally use for: boat building and repair (Basic No Blush more on No Blush - CLICK HERE),  table tops, bar tops, penny floors, "metallic epoxy floors, and sealing shipping container floors (Bio Clear 810, Basic No Blush, ESP 155 epoxies are the bar top epoxies). ESP  155 is an epoxy sealer and primer - (CLICK HERE for more about ESP 155). Visit our site on Bar Tops - CLICK HERE. We also have a site for Penny Floors - CLICK HERE). Our Low V clear epoxy is often used for rot repair (CLICK HERE) and for sealing the floors of shipping containers (CLICK HERE for more on shipping container floors). Also for boat blister repair (CLICK HERE).


5) Our clear non-epoxies are the LPU coating, Acrylic Poly UV plus, mentioned above, and the semi clear India Spar Varnish.


6) Only the Bio Clear 810 epoxy, Basic No Blush epoxy, Low V epoxy can be sold and shipped to California. None of the products are shipped outside of the Lower 48 states.


7) You can purchase any of these products, and/or get support / advise / help over the telephone by calling our east coast office at 603 435 7199. Order online 24/7 from our two online stores (the solvent based, non California products are only listed in our PRIMARY online store).

EMAIL (FEB 06): Hello: "I just bought some of your Low V epoxy and it is superior in every way to the system 3 products I (formerly) used, their clear coat and mirror coat. Less money, better adhesion, better flow, better release of trapped gas, clarity, speed of cure, and machineability. It's like night and day, and their product is nothing to laugh at! Great Product, I will buy *whatever* I need from you in the future..... GREG

1) BASIC NO BLUSH (TM) epoxy resin

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO CATALOG HOMEPAGE **

0% VOC --- Shipped UPS ground only. Only shipped within the lower 48 states


AVAILABLE WITH STANDARD CURING AGENT (50 - 80 degrees), FAST WINTER CURING AGENT (freezing to about 50 degrees) , AND SLOW SUMMER CURING AGENT (generally over 80 degrees).

 

The least expensive FORMULATED  clear epoxy available - And NON BLUSHING too!  The only one with Bubble Breakers formulated into the resin for more flawless results. An epoxy adduct for superior properties. Cheaper than even some of the 'repackaged' resins sold as marine epoxy (which you don't want to use.

 

There are two types of Epoxy Resin Vendors: 1) discount, bulk, REPACKAGERS who simple buy drums of raw resin and raw curing agent(s) from the big chemical companies and fill plastic jugs for resale; 2) FORMULATORS take the raw epoxy chemicals add to them to enhance and improve the raw "moonshine" into a "fine whiskey". Learn more repackagers/formulators.

Our Basic No Blush (tm) is a formulated non blushing epoxy by Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. (homepage). that includes additions for reduced brittleness and exclusive (only we have it)  bubble breakers for a more perfect looking finish. Basic No Blush is the least expensive of the formulated epoxies and considered the best marine epoxy by many ex-users of the other formulated epoxies.

REPACKAGED EPOXY WARNING: Over the years I have seen and had reports of non-formulated, raw resin/cure epoxies (which are extremely hard and brittle) becoming crazed with millions of cracks (like shattered safety glass) in outdoor settings that experience big changes in temperature. Formulated epoxies  all seem to be 'fixed' to allow for this expansion and contraction without cracking by making them less brittle and better able to handle internal stresses.

 

The 1.5 gal units of Basic No Blush epoxy resin now come in one gallon plastic jugs. We offer pumps for these jugs. One stroke of the pump dispenses about 1 oz. of product. The pumps do not work with the 3 quart kits of Basic No Blush epoxy.

 

Often used to reseal epoxy/pebble stone decks (coverage 200-250 square feet per 1.5 gal kit). More on pebble epoxy stone decks. Available with slow summer curing agent for application in hot weather.

"I've been using the Basic No Blush epoxy on all my own stuff, and using up all the West epoxy on most customers boats. When the West is finally gone I'll only be using your epoxies. Good stuff. I'm rebuilding an old Rybovich so a big order in the future..." Patrick (comment with on-line order 9/4/07)

2) ESP 155 epoxy sealer and primer

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO CATALOG HOMEPAGE **

VOC 239 g/l  --- Shipped UPS ground only. Only shipped within the lower 47 states (not shipped to California)


ESP 155™ is a very thin, low viscosity, moisture tolerant, epoxy designed for priming and sealing. Use on wood and fiberglass to improve adhesion of urethanes and other paints. Firm up damaged wood. Unlike our competitor's penetrating epoxy, we pack 75% resin (vs. their 30%), enough to generally seal and prime in one coat (instead of several) yet with enough solvent (25%) to penetrate deeply. Also used as a concrete primer to reduce out-gassing when top coating with solvent-free topcoats. A 1/2 gallon unit will cover about - 150 sf.

 

Another very important application is as a concrete sealer under thick solvent free epoxy floor systems. On surfaces other than residential garages (where the cement is generally 'vibrated down' to remove air from the cement) i.e. barns, workshops, etc. air trapped in the cement can be released into the thick epoxy forming lots of air bubble/blisters/craters. Reduce or eliminate by sealing the cement first with a thinned epoxy sealer like ESP 155™ .


Generally epoxies used as penetrating waterproofers use lots of solvents and the lowest quality epoxy available. ESP is an amazing exception, probably nothing else like it available. It uses a top of the line
cycloaliphatic curing system as a starting point! The other 'penetrating/sealing' epoxies are very vague about the epoxy they use in their product - bottom of the line, el cheapo stuff.

 

A little bit of our brown and/or red pigment (marine link / res. link) added to our clear epoxy sealer - ESP 155™, traditional India Spar Varnish works like a high end stain on wood surfaces without the issues of compatibility. Tinting a first coat of a clear product (with white pigment for example) can mean fewer fewer topcoats of white paint. Also it is much easier to brush or roll on an even, uniform layer of coating when that coating is slightly pigmented instead of clear. It is very hard to see what you are doing when applying a clear coating.


Common applications: primer sealer on cement floor to help reduce out-gassing from slab and better bond over weak concrete or 'stained' concrete. primer, sealer on old fiberglass boat hulls as well as wood surfaces.

3) LOW V (TM) epoxy resin

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO CATALOG HOMEPAGE **

0% VOC --- Shipped UPS ground only. Only shipped within the lower 48 states


A very thin epoxy. Very clear - only a trace of amber. Simple 2:1 mix. Recommended epoxy for sealing or as a penetrating epoxy when solvent is added. Clear, with just a trace of amber color. A very popular, general purpose, low viscosity, clear epoxy. Will bond to damp surfaces. Fast 'time to hard'. Mix with 10% xylene for an excellent penetrating epoxy. Also used as a primer on porous surfaces and under polyurethanes. Used for repairing rotted wood. Unlike our 'hard epoxies' (Basic No Blush, Premium No Blush, ) this epoxy has a bit of 'natural flex' when applied as a thin sealing coat. Bond to wet or damp surfaces.  Used by purchasers of shipping containers to seal the container's chemically treated floors.

 

Solvent thin it for a sealer and penetration

 

use straight for rebonding damp surfaces, sealing and priming (often on wood floors etc.)

 

thicken and use as a putty


Typical applications for Low V epoxy include: rot repair (because it bonds to damp surfaces. Read more on Rot - Site #1 and also at Site #2 and Site #3) - sealing re-hab shipping container floors (from chemicals in the floor to kill bugs etc. Read more on Shipping Container floor sealing - Site #1 and also at Site #2) and as a general primer and sealer. One boat restoration pro (now deceased) used the LOW V epoxy in place of the thicker Basic No Blush marine epoxy or in place of the Premium No Blush marine epoxy. Read more about his work. It is also commonly injected into delaminated core / skin areas in "spongy" boat decks and RV walls. Also fixing osmotic blisters on boat hulls. Read more on blisters - Site #1 and also at Site #2). Mixed with copper powder for an anti - fouling boat bottom.

Bio Clear 810™ EPOXY

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO Long successful track record for pour-on bar tops/tables - Cycloaliphatic system for makes it the best qual
CON fisheyes if applied too thin on flat, very smooth surfaces. Relatively short shelf life.

THIS IS THE ONLY TABLE TOP EPOXY THAT USES A CYCLO-ALIPHATIC FORMULATION AND  CONTAINS NO NONYL PHENOL (THAT IS WHY IT IS THE BEST AND THE FAVORITES FOR PROFESSIONALS.

 

Requires 1/4 edge all around the surface and 1/4 inch pours (1 gal of epoxy will do 6 sf at 1/4 inch thick.) see table top bar top page. We have other epoxies that are also used for table and bar tops.

This is a thin (for min bubbles) very clear epoxy. It is a cycloaliphatic epoxy system, making one of the most weather resistant, slowest yellowing epoxies on the market. Cyclo epoxies cost a bit more but are a much better quality, better performing epoxy for your $$ project.

Used by the craftsman, wood workers, DIY folks and PRO (who have all tried different products before). Very thin for self leveling and little or no bubbles, this is what to use for your basement man room bar - fancy table or craft project.

A commercial epoxy pour contractor recently used our Bio Clear 810 to replace a badly yellowed epoxy poured covered logo on the INSIDE  floor of regional airport terminal with our 'almost no yellowing' Bio Clear 810 (cyclo-aliphatic epoxies to the rescue!) Don't be like the first contractor that just poured some cheap clear epoxy over the airport logo and thought they did a good job. It looked fine to start with and the contractor made a few extra dollars using generic clear epoxy. Too bad. The airport was lucky they could redo their badly damaged cheap epoxy mistake. Most folks cannot redo their special poured epoxy table top.



Common applications: table top and bar top surfaces applied in 1/4 inch layers. Tables and bars should have a edge all around to prevent this thin epoxy from running off
