Series 201 | Epoxoprime

Generic Type Modified Polyamine Epoxy
Common Usage High-solids moisture tolerant epoxy used for priming concrete, wood and drywall. Also as a stand-alone one-coat clear floor sealer.
Colors Clear. Can be field-tinted (Series 820 Field Tint) in 16 StrataShield colors and certain custom colors. 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.
Surfacer/Filler/Patcher Series 130, 215, 217, 218, 1254
Note: A repair kit of 201, with Part C fumed silica, is available for small patching/surfacing repairs. For more extensive repairs and additional information, contact your Tnemec representative or Tnemec Technical Services.

Volume Solids 100% (mixed)
Recommended DFT Concrete: Horizontal: 6.0 to 12.0 mils (150 to 305 microns) per coat. Vertical - 4.0 to 6.0 mils (100 to 150 microns) per coat.
Wall board, Drywall & Wood: 4.0 to 6.0 mils (100 to 150 microns) per coat—two coats applied at 30 to 45 minute intervals.
Curing Time
Temperature Maximum Recoat Time To Place in Service
75°F (24°C) 24 hours 24 hours
Curing time varies with surface temperature, air movement, humidity and film thickness.
Ventilation: When spray-applied, provide adequate ventilation during application and cure. Reference ventilation guidelines contained in the latest edition of AWWA D 102. Note: If Series 201 is used as the primer for a mortar system, the mortar application should take place while the Series 201 is still tacky, typically up to four hours, otherwise, aggregate should be lightly broadcast into the primer so to provide tooth to hold the mortar in place when spread. When the Series 201 is used as a vertical or horizontal primer for a thin film system, the 201 should be allowed to dry hard without exceeding the 24 hour recoat window. If Series 201 is used as the primer for the Series 270 Stranlok system, the Series 201 should be allowed to tack up for approximately one to four hours depending upon temperature but not allowed to dry hard.
