Series 239 | ChemTread

Generic Type Modified Novolac Polyamine Epoxy
Common Usage A chemical resistant, multi-purpose novolac 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. Caution: Novolacs will stain with extended exposure to certain acids. As a result, darker colors are recommended.
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.
Primers Self-priming or Series 201, 208, 241
Topcoats Series 239, 252SC, 282, 286. Note: Drier mixes, typically used for power trowel application, should be grouted with Series 239 prior to the finish coat application.
Volume Solids 100% (mixed)
Recommended DFT Primer: 6.0 to 12.0 (150-305 microns) per coat.
Broadcast: 1/16" to 1/8” (Double broadcast or slurry broadcast required to achieve 1/8")
Mortar: Suggested 1/4” (Minimum of 1/8”, Maximum of 1”)
Grout Coat: 8.0 to 16.0 mils (203 to 406 microns)
Intermediate or Topcoat: 8.0 to 16.0 mils (203 to 406 microns)
Curing Time
Temperature To Topcoat/Broadcast To Place in Service Full Cure
75°F (24°C) 12 to 24 hours 24 hours 5 days
Note: If more than 24 hours have elapsed between coats, the coated surface must be mechanically abraded before topcoating. Note: There is no maximum recoat time if aggregate has been broadcast to refusal into the preceding coat. Note: 24 hour cure provides for traffic, secondary containment and certain mild chemical exposures. Up to five days cure is required for certain severe chemical exposures. Contact your Tnemec representative or Tnemec Technical Services. Curing time varies with surface temperature, air movement, humidity and film thickness.
Volatile Organic Compounds Unthinned: 0.013 lbs/gallon (1.5 grams/litre)
Thinned 5% (No. 2 Thinner): 0.47 lbs/gallon (56 grams/litre)
HAPS Unthinned: 0.0 lbs/gal solids
Thinned 5% (No. 2 Thinner): 0.37 lbs/gal solids
Theoretical Coverage 1,604 mil sq ft/gal (39.4 m²/L at 25 microns). See APPLICATION for coverage rates.
Number of Components Liquids–Two: Part A and Part B (2 parts A to 1 part B by volume)
Field Colorant–One: (optional) (Series 820)
Note: Aggregate for mortar applications (S239-0301C) is available from Tnemec or can be purchased from an approved supplier.
