Series 49 | Multi-Purpose Epoxy

Generic Type Modified Polyamine Epoxy
Common Usage A high-solids, low VOC epoxy coating used for a multitude of primer and topcoat applications. The tough, abrasion-resistant film of Series 49 provides durable protection to concrete, CMU, and steel, and it is immersion grade, making it an excellent choice for non-potable service environments. Excellent adhesion properties allow for use on marginally prepared surfaces when blast cleaning is not possible.
Colors Available in light- and mid-tone colors. Deep-tone and safety colors may be limited. Contact your Tnemec Representative for more information. Note: Epoxies chalk with extended exposure to sunlight. Lack of ventilation, incomplete mixing, miscatalyzation or the use of heaters that emit carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide during application and initial stages of curing may cause yellowing to occur.
Finish Semi-gloss. Gloss can vary with texture, porosity of substrate and thickness of film.
Primers Steel: Self-priming or Series 1, 90-97, 135, 394
Concrete or CMU: Self-priming or Series 215, 218, 1254, 130
Topcoats Series 73, 1026, 1028, 1029, 1074, 1075, 1095
Note: When topcoating with Endura-Shield polyurethane topcoats, Series 49 has a maximum time to recoat of 60 days. If this time is exceeded, scarification or a Series 49 tie-coat is required before topcoating. Refer to appropriate topcoat data sheet for additional information.
Volume Solids 82.0 ± 2.0% (mixed) †
Recommended DFT 4.0 to 10.0 mils (100 to 255 microns) per coat. Note: Number of coats and thickness requirements will vary with substrate, application method and exposure. Contact your Tnemec representative.
