Water based epoxy sealers for use on concrete substrates and overlays provide a durable, long-wearing abrasion resistant finish. Epoxy sealers are thicker than other types of sealers. This makes them the best choice for protection against abrasions, scratches and high-traffic wear as they are much tougher than acrylic or other types of sealers. Most water based epoxy sealers are available in either clear or pigmented formulas. They have excellent adhesion to concrete and are low odor so they can be installed in occupied areas.
Because some epoxy sealers are susceptible to yellowing from UV exposure, they are ideally suited for indoor use. A 100% solids epoxy sealer, such as Duraamen's Perdure E12, was formulated to combat the yellowing of standard epoxy sealers. It is specifically formulated to be UV resistant while providing the same long-wearing finish and abrasion resistance that all epoxy sealers provide.
Epoxy sealers are also non-porous which prevents the escape of trapped moisture that can lead to bubbling or cracking of the finished floor. While this can be an issue with some applications, this property also makes water based epoxy sealers ideal for food preparation areas and other facilities where the floor is often in contact with water.
For applications where an epoxy sealer may be the ideal solution—but moisture vapor transmission of the substrate is a concern, Duraamen provides a breathable water based epoxy topcoat—Perdure BE58. This breathable epoxy topcoat allows water vapor to escape from the concrete substrate, preventing the flooring from bubbling and cracking. Perdure BE58 has good chemical resistance, is UV stable and provides the excellent wear and scratch resistance common to all epoxy sealers. It also meets USGBC–LEED low VOC requirements, as it is low odor.
Duraamen's full line of water based epoxy sealers are second to none. Contact a Duraamen representative today for help choosing the right epoxy sealer for your project.
Perdüre BE58 is a unique water-based high solids breathable (moisture vapor tolerant) epoxy flooring top coat or grout coat for various Düraamen flooring systems. It can be applied in films up to 16mils without impacting cure properties. This product is ideal for any floor or wall coating project needing a high-build coating system that is moisture vapor tolerant, durable, with a requirement for USGBC LEED certification. Typical uses include corridors, lobbies, warehouse floors, light duty manufacturing areas and various residential or commercial areas.
The new waterborne curing agent technology offers Perdüre BE58 high film-building formulations with unique performance properties. The micro porous morphology of the epoxy thermoset network gives it the ability to “breath” over substrates with high moisture vapor transmission – a major factor in blistering of conventional epoxy coatings / sealers.
