PRODUCT DATA
Epoxyshield
DESCRIPTION
Epoxyshield® is a user friendly and easy to apply water-based epoxy garage floor coating
with an ultimate adhesion and durability. The product has an excellent wear, impact and
abrasion resistance like heavy foot and vehicle traffic. Resists chemicals and standing water.
The kit consists out of a 2-part epoxy coating, a cleaning solution, decoration chips, paint
paddle and a instruction DVD.
RECOMMENDED USES
Apply on concrete floors, which are completely clean and dry. It is not recommended to apply
on smooth/dense concrete or concrete containing a curing compound, which will prevent a
good adhesion. Epoxyshield® can also be applied on old good adhering coatings.

Remark
Since the application time is only 1 - 2 hours (depending on temperature) it is advisable to
apply the product with 2 persons. Have 1 person begin trimming edges and have another
person begin rolling out the floor as specified.
Coverage
Theoretical: Each Epoxyshield® kit contains enough product to cover approximately 25 m² of
smooth, bare concrete (a normal 1 car concrete garage floor). Very rough or
porous concrete may require more material. Expect coverage of 12-20 m² on
those surfaces.
SURFACE PREPARTION
Remove any oil or grease spots on the floor. Use a scrub brush and a cleaner/degreaser or
use a solvent such as mineral spirits. Scrub the spot thoroughly and wipe up excess cleaner
with rags or paper towels to keep contaminants from spreading. Rinse thoroughly with fresh
water. Repeat as necessary to completely clean.
Mix all concentrated cleaner from the kit with approximately 7½-litre water. Mix until dissolved
(the cleaning solution contains citric acid).

PRODUCT DATA
Epoxyshield
Pre-wet the floor using a hose. Remove pooled water with a squeegee or broom to avoid
leaving puddles. Spread the cleaner mixture over a 3-3-m² section of the floor using a
watering can.
Scrub vigorously with a stiff bristle brush to loosen dust and dirt. While working, keep the
entire section wet until the entire section has been cleaned and rinsed.
Rinse each section thoroughly before starting the next section. For best results, use a foam
squeegee to remove the rinse water from the surface and to move dirt and contaminants out
of the garage. Once all sections are completed, rinse and squeegee the entire garage floor to
remove any cleaner that has been tracked on previously cleaned areas.
A wet/dry vacuum cleaner can also be used to eliminate excess water, dirt and contaminants.
Do not leave pooled water on the floor.
The cleaner will not discolour driveways or harm grass or plants if rinsed thoroughly.
Allow the floor to dry completely.
Wipe your fingers over the clean, dry floor. If you see any dust or powder on your fingers,
repeat the rinsing and scrubbing until the floor is clean.
DIRECTION FOR USE
Do not mix Paint Chips with Epoxyshield®. Pour the contents of A into B and stir thoroughly
for at least 3 minutes. Allow mixed product to stand for at least 60 minutes before rolling the
coating on to the surface. Do not leave container in direct sunlight. Mix again before applying.
This product must be used within 3 hours of initial mixing (pot life). This time decreases at
higher temperatures. If temperature is above 30ºC, begin rolling on the coating after 30
minutes.
APPLICATION & THINNING
After the full 60 minutes use a paint roller (20 cm) to apply an even coat of Epoxyshield® onto
the surface. Apply in sections of 1,5 x 1,5 m so that paint chips can easily be scattered on the
freshly coated surface. Maintain a wet edge to prevent lap marks and gloss differences.
Sprinkle the decorative paint chips onto the wet film (note: this step may be skipped if chips
are not desired. This will not affect the performance of the coating). Immediately continue to
coat the next section (note: fresh paint can be applied over the loose chips that lay outside the
previously painted area). Only one coat is necessary. This product must be used within 3
hours of initial mixing (pot life).
Cleanup:
Wash all tools and equipment immediately with warm water and mild detergent. Allow any
unused product to harden in the container and discard according to local regulations.
APPLICATION CONDITIONS
Apply when air (ambient) temperature is 15-35ºC and relative humidity is below 80%.
Concrete floors take a long time to warm up; make sure the previous day has also been at
least 15ºC prior to painting. Minimum floor temperature for painting is 13ºC. Painting in midafternoon ensures the best cure.
SAFETY
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. For skin contact, wash affected area with soap and water
and rinse well. First aid: in case of contact with eyes, flush with cold water for 15 minutes. If
swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Drink 1-2 glasses of water or milk. Contact a physician
immediately. Keep out of reach of children. Do not take internally.
Consult for further information the Safety Data Sheet and the Safety Information printed on
the can.
