Why You Need To Seal The Wood Floor In Your Shipping Container
There are several popular web sites that relates how someone converted an old shipping container into a rustic cabin, storage space, man cave, etc. Special care was suggested regarding sealing the wood floor which might contain unhealthy chemicals contaminating the wood.
These two sites #1 (TinCanCabin. com)
and #2 (BrooklyFarmGirl.com)
Both promote the use of our LOW V epoxy to seal the wood floors of shipping containers
Paul --- hey we love the epoxy... we got another container so we
want to do it again ...
We need enough for a 40-foot container floor, same as b4" -- Terri 1/19
Low V epoxy is a very thin, clear epoxy. 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. Used for sealing in the chemicals found in the treated floors of shipping containers (and as a 'base' for carpet, etc. going over the container floor). Also used in repairing rotted wood and injected into ‘soft’ wood cores on fiberglass boat decks. A 1.5 gal unit of Low V epoxy will seal a 20 ft container. Two units for a 40 ft container.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - epoxies have short working times (pot life) based upon temperature. In hot weather (around 90 degrees or so) the working time is very short - perhaps too short to apply easily. In cold weather (let's say 30 degrees and freezing) the pot life and curing can be very very slow (perhaps too slow?).
We have developed a FAST / WINTER version and a SLOW / SUMMER version of the Low V epoxy for the shipping container folks so that you can seal the floors in the heat of summer or the freezing winter. It adds $7 to the base price of the regular Low V epoxy 1.5 gal kits. And while you can order the regular Low V epoxy from the on-line stores (link below), you will have to call in your order for the Slow Summer or Fast Winter version of the Low V epoxy (603.435.7199 east coast time - Pittsfield NH)

Why You Need To Seal The Rusty Metal Walls, Roof, and Sides Of Your Shipping Container
MCU Aluthane (tm)
Aluthane is a moisture cured urethane (MCU) that is pigmented with aluminum - hence an aluminum paint. The aluminum flake pigment and the MCU properties themselves, provide a excellent brush/roller/spray on barrier to air and moisture.
Aluthane will seal off existing lead based paints, reflect heat, seal off rust. It can be applied to less than perfectly prepped surfaces.
One gallon will cover 400 sf (recommended you apply 2 coats for max rust protection). You can top coat aluthane with safe latex or enamel paint for whatever color look you want!
What is an MCU Coating?
Aluthane (tm) is an MCU coating. MCU stands for Moisture Cured Urethane and makes a very superior high performance coating. These are a unique type of coating much better known in commercial industrial painting circles than within the general public market. Most MCU coatings use tiny aluminum flake as pigment which gives them their classic silvery/gray color and enhances their remarkable properties.
MCU contain lots of solvents which aids in penetrating tiny cracks and crevices. The coating scavenges moisture from its contact surfaces and the air and undergoes an cross-linking molecular process which 'grips' or grabs onto surfaces for outstanding adhesion, even with poorly prepared surfaces. Removing internal surface moisture removes one of the key components necessary for rust development.
The resulting dry surface (aided by the stacking aluminum pigment platelets) provides a physical barrier to air and oxygen, another necessary component for rust to form. The result is a thin, hard coating that seals our air, water, salts, minerals etc. essentially encapsulating the surface It therefore is one of the best, easy to apply, rust and corrosion control coatings.
Its amazing adhesion results in a versatile coating well suited for use on steel, aluminum, concrete, fiberglass, wood etc. It can be used as a primer/sealer, a middle coat or a exposed as a topcoat. The aluminum pigmented versions have no UV issues, can be applied at low temperatures and operate at temperatures of up to about 400 degrees F. Besides being used as a rust stopper is also has applications on boats, roofing and flooring applications. In is used a lot in the industrial, automotive, marine and farm marketplaces. The AUTO RESTORATION market is one place these coatings are widely promoted within the 'DIY home' marketplace.
