A common issue with cool-temperature floor coating jobs, amine blush is an oily surface imperfection caused by moisture or dew settling on uncured epoxy. While not fatal to the job, cleaning that blush slows projects from on-time completion.
Contractors report that WearCOAT 440FS is easy to apply evenly and consistently. Most importantly, the high-grade formula has proven superior in allowing them to take on projects through winter months. This is when higher humidity and cooler concrete substrates can yield the unwelcome problem.
A 100-percent solids epoxy mid-coat or top-coat, CFI formulated WearCOAT 440FS to cure fast in temperatures as low as 40°F/4°C. It’s fast-cure characteristics make it dry to touch in 2-3 hours. You can then recoat it in as little 4 hours, which helps it to resist amine blush.
Contractors can count on this blush-resistant formula for flooring projects that are partially or completely exposed to cooler, seasonal temperatures with higher humidity. WearCOAT 440FS is also ideal for use on floors in refrigerated, cold storage areas.
