Series 406 | Elasto-Shield

Generic Type Aromatic Polyurethane Hybrid
Common Usage A two-component, fast setting, monolithic coating designed to provide a durable polyurethane lining in a single-coat, multi-pass spray application applied with plural component equipment. This high performance coating has excellent chemical, thermal shock and abrasion resistance. It is ideal for application to steel or concrete in water and wastewater treatment, secondary containment and for tank linings and bottoms. Recommended for immersion service. Note: All orders are subject to approval based upon project scope, applicator qualification and appropriate equipment configuration.
Colors WH06 Off-White. Other colors may be available with minimum size orders, contact your Tnemec representative. Note: Colors will change when exposed to sunlight.
Surfacer/Filler/Patcher Series 215, 218. Note: For more extensive repairs and additional information, contact your Tnemec representative or Tnemec Technical Service.
Primers Concrete & CMU: Series N140, N140F, V140, V140F, 201.
Steel: Self-priming or Series 1, 90-97, 91-H2O, 94-H2O, N140, N140F, V140, V140F.
When topcoating with Series 406, the following recoat times apply:

Topcoats Series 290, 297, 1080, 1081. Note: Not for use in immersion service. Note: When topcoating with Series 290, 297, 1080 or 1081, recoat time for Series 406 is 24 hours minimum/5 days maximum.
Volume Solids 100% (mixed) †
Recommended DFT 25.0 to 125.0 mils (635 to 3175 microns). Maximum of 75 mils DFT for applications in potable water.
Curing Time

At 35°F (2°C)24 hours7 days7 days
Note: There is a seven day return to service time for potable water immersion if N140, N140F, V140 or V140F is used as a primer. This does not apply if Series 406 is applied direct or another approved primer is used.
Note: If the maximum recoat window has been exceeded, the Series 406 coated surface must be mechanically abraded and wiped with MEK prior to topcoating. Curing time varies with surface temperature, air movement, humidity and film thickness. Ventilation: When used in enclosed areas, provide adequate ventilation during application and cure.
