Available in 1-gallon units.

Description

MCU FX is a single-component moisture-cured urethane (MCU) topcoat finish specifically formulated for use with our Xtreme FX epoxy.

MCU FX has excellent abrasion resistance, flexibility, chemical resistance, weathering, and UV stability. It is unlike any urethane on the market today.

With MCU FX, you have an extended pot life since it’s a single component urethane. For superior slip-resistance, use our Aluminum Oxide Urethane additive.  While MCU FX is designed for metallic flooring professionals, its extremely long pot life makes it user friendly for just about anyone who knows how to use a paint roller.

If you need a durable topcoat for your metallic floors or flake floors that’s easy to apply, MCU FX is the way to go.

Be sure to have a look at some of the completed projects from Glossy Floors.

Usage

MCU FX is a superior topcoat formulated specifically for the Epoxy FX family of products.

Mixing: Do not incorporate air while mixing. Mix slowly with a handheld stir stick for no more than 10 – 15 seconds if necessary. Do not use power mixing equipment.

MCU FX is designed to be a clear topcoat only. It is not recommended to incorporate color as it may have an adverse effect on the pot life, cure time, finish, etc.

Coverage Rate: First Coat: 300 – 350 square feet per gallon. Second Coat: 300 – 350 square feet per gallon.

* Coverage rates may vary depending upon surface porosity, texture, application method, and prior sealer application. Excessive build-up should be avoided.

Caution: MCU FX cures by absorbing moisture from the atmosphere and then hardening. If the container is open for any period of time or brushes or rollers are dipped in and out, then the contents are likely to cure and become solid.

Partially filled containers are also likely to cure and become solid over a period of time. Pour out only what will be used up in the immediate time frame and reseal the original container each time alter pouring product out. Leftover material should be poured into airtight, metal cans that have little to no air space in them with the lid securely in place.

Application

Over Smooth Surfaces: It is recommended to apply this coating over an existing epoxy or urethane using a 1/4″ mohair blend shed-free, phenolic core roller.

Apply evenly at a rate of 300 – 350 square feet per gallon, always keeping a wet edge. Back rolling as you go is the recommended method to achieve a uniform, roller mark-free application. It is recommended to work in sections usually using control joints as dividers to ensure proper application results.

Do not allow to puddle. Use a bristle brush to remove the excess coating in joints. Puddling/over application may result in bubbling, hazing, lack of adhesion, etc.

Over Flake System Surfaces: Apply MCU FX directly over flake evenly with a flat, flexible squeegee and backroll with a 3/8″ nap, shed-free, phenolic core roller. Apply evenly at a rate of 175 – 225 square feet per gallon, always keeping a wet edge. Do not allow to puddle. Use a bristle brush to remove the excess coating in joints. Do Not Thin!

FOR PERSONAL PROTECTION USE GLOVES, GOGGLES, AND RESPIRATORS.

Second Coat: If a second coat is necessary it should be applied between 6 and 12 hours of the first coat for optimum adhesion. If recoating after 18 hours, screen the entire surface with a 60 or 80 grit screen on a buffer, remove dust, and re-apply a thin coat at the same rate as the first coat (an additional coat may be necessary to hide scratches from screening).

Please Note: Applying material outside the suggested parameters may result in product 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. When applying, do not exceed 400 square feet per gallon.

Applying too thin of a coating may cause inadequate film formation or performance expectations may be limited. Do not use on brick.
