Xtreme FX is a 100% solids epoxy for metallic floors and countertops. Xtreme FX has a 45-60 minute pot life allowing you the time to be creative.

Available in 3/4, 3, and 15 gallon kits.

Description

Xtreme FX is a 100% solids epoxy that is unlike any epoxy on the market today. Xtreme FX epoxy has a 45-60 minute pot life and is designed for metallic flooring professionals.

Our 100% solids epoxy will have much more natural movements and helps in giving it a higher than normal 3D effect.

Xtreme FX epoxies resemble a beautifully placed marbled 3D surface.

A metallic floor is created by adding our Metallic FX 3D Pigment powder to Xtreme FX epoxy. Metallic systems are very much considered an artistic creation.

Multiple designs can be constructed depending on the application technique and colors used. Metallic FX 3D Pigment colors can be combined, allowing for unlimited color variations.

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

Usage

Moisture Testing

Concrete floors, especially those not poured over a proper vapor barrier (plastic), are subject to possible moisture vapor transmission which may result in bubbling and/or failure of our high-performance coatings. Basic moisture testing can be performed by placing a 4′ x 4′ sheet of plastic on the concrete surface and securely taping it down on all edges. If after 24 hours the concrete is still dry below the plastic, the surface should be ready to coat. If moisture is present, the coating applicator should perform calcium chloride and relative humidity probe testing to determine if excessive levels of vapor emissions are present before applying any coatings.

Surface Prep

The concrete surface must be deemed mechanically and structurally sound, thoroughly clean of debris, and completely dry. Concrete must be fully cured a minimum of 28 days.

It is recommended to prepare the concrete surface by mechanical means such as shot blasting or diamond grinding with 30 grit or coarser diamonds to achieve a CSP-2 to CSP-3 profile.

Vacuum the concrete surface several times until dust thoroughly removed. If applying over an existing, fully bonded coating that is outside its recommended recoat window, the surface should be sanded thoroughly with a 60-120 grit sanding screen until the surface is completely dulled with scratches.

Vacuum dust thoroughly, rinse with clean water and remove excess water with a wet/dry vacuum or floor scrubber. Allow the surface to dry completely prior to application of the coating. Where applicable and with adequate ventilation, wipe the surface with acetone and a microfiber dust mop. CAUTION: Acetone is extremely flammable! If using acetone, follow all safety precautions, make sure no pilot lights, open flames, sources of static electricity, sparks, or extreme heat sources are present. Use the recommended personal protection for acetone.

The substrate, air, and material temperatures must be no less than 50°F and not exceed 80°F. If applied outside these limits the coating may not achieve adequate film formation and may have excessive air entrapment, bubbles, blushing, or hazing. Please note that higher substrate, air, and material temperatures as well as excessive humidity may speed the cure rate of this product. Cooler temperatures and lower humidity may slow the cure rate of this product.

Tinting

If tinting with Base Color FX (refer to TDS prior to use). One pint container per 3-gallon kit is suggested for a solid, opaque finish. For metallic epoxy applications, a one-quart container of Metallic 3DFX (refer to TDS prior to use) per 3-gallon kit is suggested. Always add color to Part A and drill mix for 2-3 minutes prior to blending A and B. Color may settle during long term storage and be difficult to redistribute. Always test for color acceptance prior to full application. Multiple coats may be necessary for total opacity.

Mixing

If mixing less than a full kit, mix Part A and Part B separately with a stir stick, low-speed mixer. In a clean mixing container, blend 2 Parts A and 1 Part B using a drill mixer for 2-3 minutes. If mixing a full kit (except a 15-gallon kit), the Part A container can be used as the mixing container. Avoid creating a vortex in the material which could introduce air and/or moisture content to the mixture. Do not mix more than can be applied within the usable pot life time frame. Do not thin!

Coverage Rate

First Coat- Direct to Concrete: 100 – 150 SF per gallon.
Second Coat – Over Existing Coating: 75 – 125 SF per gallon
Metallic Coat – Over Existing Coating: 40 – 60 SF per gallon

Pot Life

45-60 minutes

Note: Coverage rates may vary depending upon surface porosity, texture, application method and prior coating application.

Application:

It is suggested to apply the mixed material by pouring it out onto the surface and spread with a flat flexible squeegee or a notched squeegee. Use a 1/8″ (8 -12 mil) notched squeegee when applying direct to concrete. A 3/16″ (15 – 20 mil) to 1/4″ (25 – 30 mil) notched squeegee may be used on additional coats over a completely sealed off surface. Backroll clear and solid color epoxy using 3/8″ nap shedless roller or 3/8″ foam roller. 18″ rollers are recommended for any surface to speed up application time and reduce roller marks.

For Metallic Applications:

Use a brush or small roller for corners and areas hard to maneuver longer squeegees/rollers. 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. It is always suggested to minimize the amount of time mixed material is held in a larger volume, especially in higher temperatures. If the material becomes thick while applying and sticking to the application tools, 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 streaking. Do not allow to puddle! Use a brush to remove excess coating in joints.

Recoating

If possible, recoat within the suggested recoat window located on page 1. Apply additional coats in the same manner as the first coat. Note that higher substrate, air, and material temperatures as well as excessive humidity may greatly reduce the acceptable recoat window of this product. When working in higher temperatures, always recoat as early in the recoat window as possible to avoid failure between coats. If recoating outside the suggested recoat window (see page 1) or beyond 24 hours, sand using a 60-120 grit sanding screen to ensure adequate adhesion between coats. Vacuum dust thoroughly, rinse with clean water and remove excess water with a wet/dry vacuum or floor scrubber. Allow surface to dry completely prior to application of coating. Where applicable and with adequate ventilation, wipe the surface with acetone and a microfiber dust mop.
