Applications

Fortis AquaCoat™ is an ultra-low VOC, high solids, two-pack water-based epoxy floor coating designed for use on concrete floors in areas of pedestrian traffic, light to medium vehicle traffic, and where mild spillage is expected. The very low odour present during application also makes it ideal for use in schools, healthcare facilities, food service areas, office buildings, or in any area where the odour is an issue. Fortis AquaCoat™ is recommended for internal use and is available in a range of colours.

Surfaces

Substrates should be thoroughly sanded or ground to provide a keyed surface. If applying over existing coatings adhesion should be tested by preparation of a small test area. Remove all potential contaminants. On new concrete surfaces, it is best to diamond grind the surface. Old surfaces are best diamond ground but it is possible to etch and clean the surface. Contact Fortis if unsure. Fortis AquaCoat™ Clear is recommended as a primer before application of a coloured coat. New concrete must be cured for a minimum of 28 days before application
