Satin FX is a 93% solids, three-component aliphatic urethane floor finish that promotes excellent characteristics such as UV stability, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, flexibility, and weathering.

It is not recommended to mix less than a full kit. Satin FX has three components. Mix Part A with Part B thoroughly. Add Part C and mix well to ensure a uniform mixture. All Satin FX kits come prepackaged. It is not absolutely necessary to use all of the Part C.
After all three parts are combined, mix extremely well with a slow speed mixer such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak-free. Avoid mixing too quickly as air may become entrained into the coating material. Improper mixing may result in product failure. Once the material is opened, it may not be re-sealed for later use.
First Coat – Over Smooth Floors: 600 – 700 ft per gallon
Second Coat: Not Recommended
*Coverage rates may vary depending upon surface porosity, texture, application method, and prior coating application. Excessive build-up should be avoided.
Once Satin FX has been thoroughly mixed, pour into an application tray.
Apply at the rate of 600 – 700 square feet per gallon. Apply uniformly with a 3/8” nap roller.
For a uniform appearance, it is critical that the material is not applied thicker than this application rate. Dip the roller in the coating and roll out excess material in the roller tray prior to the actual application to the substrate. Overlap subsequent passes being sure no excess material is applied when overlapping. Make sure the floor has just enough material to cover evenly in a thin application.
Crosshatch the area in the opposite direction of the first pass in order to level and even out the application.
The final re-rolling for the entire floor should be in the same direction. Be sure to remix the material in the application tray every so often in order to maintain a uniform mix throughout the application process.
If you aren’t happy with the overall appearance, you can re-roll the area until it’s uniform in appearance.
Satin FX is almost impossible to over-roll. Under normal circumstances, you have plenty of working time.
The last step in the application process (wearing spiked shoes) is to pull the roller tool across the entire slab in one direction without applying any pressure and repeating this process by overlapping until the entire slab has been re-rolled. This step will help blend in any roller lines and overlap marks.
Be sure to maintain temperatures and regulate the humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and during the curing process.
Make sure the substrate has been de-glossed. It’s always best practice to maintain a wet edge in order to avoid roller marks.
Please note that direct sunlight or high temperatures may cause visible roller marking during application. If applied too thick, it may result in solvent entrapment, roller lines, and/or product failure.
The Surface must be dry before using Satin FX.
