High gloss solvent based Aliphatic urethane concrete floor coating offering resistance to oil, gas, and chemicals.
The Armor UTN60 is an industrial grade high performance concrete coating designed to enhance and protect interior concrete floors. Made from 60% solids aliphatic urethane, the UTN60 can withstand exposure to surface abrasion, oil, gas and exposure to many harsh chemicals.
The Armor UTN60 is a great choice for a variety of interior concrete applications, including:
The Armor UTN60 is designed specifically for unsealed interior concrete floors. Prior to application, the floor must be properly prepped and clean so that the sealer can absorb, bond, and cure.
The Armor UTN60 will leave a protective high gloss surface film. When applied in clear, it will leave a transparent high gloss finish and when applied in color, will leave an opaque (paint-like) high gloss finish.
When properly applied, the Armor UTN60 can provide up to 10 years of life.
While the Armor UTN60 is designed to out-last and out-perform similar products on the market, there are several factors that can impact actual product life including the type and severity of surface abrasion and chemical exposure.
The Armor UTN60 works best when applied over the Armor Epoxy Primer. The Armor Epoxy primer allows for superior adhesion to the concrete.
SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface preparation is key to the success and life of the UTN60. UTN60 must be applied to fully cured unsealed interior concrete that has been properly prepped with a diamond grinder to a 25-80 grit finish (concrete surface profile 3). Surface needs to be completely dry and free of oil, dirt, grime, wax, detergent or any incompatible paint or coating.
If applying the Armor UTN60 as a top coat over the Armor Epoxy Primer, UTN60 must be applied within the recoat window of the Armor Epoxy. If applying the UTN60 to an existing coating, it is important to first speak with a Foundation Armor Technician regarding compatibility, required surface preparation and application.
Clear UTN60: Slow drill mix 2 Parts A with 1 Part B in a clean 5 gallon pail. Mix for 60-90 seconds, or until material is thoroughly blended and homogenous. Avoid whipping air into the coating. Improper mixing can result in coating failure.
UTN60 w/Color Pack: Before adding in Part B, slow drill mix color into pre-mixed Part A for roughly 30 seconds. 4.5-6 oz. of color should be added to each gallon of material. For example, if you are mixing a 3 gallon UTN60 kit, you would mix in a total of 13.5-18 oz of color. Once the color has been mixed into Part A, add in Part B and slow drill mix for 60-90 seconds, or until material is thoroughly blended and homogenous
Non-Slip: For best results, apply the Armor non-slip additive with an appropriate hand-held broadcast spreader. When applying the second coat, add the non-slip additive to the coating using a broadcast spreader, and back roll to encapsulate the non-slip additive.
Product Application: Apply the mixed material using a 3/8” shedless nap roller. It is important to apply within estimated pot life and recommended temperature guidelines. Please note that pot life may vary. If the material becomes thick while applying, or starts sticking to the roller , stop applying and discard the mixed material. At this point it has reached the end of the usable pot life. While applying keep a wet edge to prevent roller marks. It is recommended to work in sections usually using control joints as dividers to ensure proper application results. Do not allow to Puddle! If recoating after 24 hours you must wait 5-7 days to allow the coating to cure. Once 5-7 days has passed, a light sanding using an 80 grit screen pad (and a thorough surface cleaning) is required prior to applying an additional coat to ensure adequate coat adhesion.
Blending roller lines: When rolling the UTN60 it is considered a best practice to lift the roller at the end of the stroke so there are no roller lines/stop lines. Applying the UTN60 is very similar to applying paint, be sure to always maintain a wet edge. Work fast, but controlled, you only have about 25-30 minutes of working time before the pot life is reached.
When applying the UTN60 in a color, you may see small areas of concrete through the first coat of material. Applying a second color coat will help to achieve a consistent opaque surface finish.
The UTN60 should be applied in thin, even coats. Do not attempt to apply large amounts of material in an attempt to fill in concrete cracks, holes, divots, or surface imperfections.
Applying UTN60 outside of the suggested parameters may result in application failure. It is always recommended to test the product in a small, inconspicuous area (on the same concrete substrate) for desired results prior to application. Coverage rates may vary for all coatings and substrates depending on porosity, density, texture etc.
The applicator is responsible for suitability of application, and the results of the application. We suggest applying to a test area first to verify compatibility, absorption, coverage rate, and project suitability.
Coverage rates vary depending upon surface porosity and texture, and application method. Excessive build up should be avoided.
