Series 238 | Power-Tread FC

Generic Type Modified Polyamine Fast-Cure Epoxy
Common Usage A multi-purpose epoxy coating that can be used as a primer, broadcast, slurry/broadcast, mortar, grout coat, and topcoat. Excellent application properties with good flow and self-leveling characteristics. Protects concrete surfaces from impact, abrasion and mild chemicals.
Colors Clear or pigmented. Can be factory or field-tinted (Series 820 Field Tint) in 16 StrataShield colors and certain custom colors. Contact your Tnemec representative for additional information. Note: Epoxies chalk and yellow with age, extended exposure to UV and artificial lighting. 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 amine blush, possibly affecting adhesion of subsequent topcoats.
Surfacer/Filler/Patcher Series 206, 215. 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.
