98% Solids Polyurea Base Floor Coating 4 Temperature Formulas

BASE-IC is a fast cure 98% solids polyurea system primarily used under broadcast flakes or quartz for a quick turnaround. Using BASE-IC allows broadcast systems to become one day installs. There are four different formulas of BASE-IC to allow for a wide range of substrate temperatures. BASE-IC is field-tintable with 14 solid colors utilizing B-TINT packs.
Application Temperature:

  • Base-IC 40: 40° to 50° F
  • Base-IC 50: 50° to 75° F
  • Base-IC 75: 75° to 95° F
  • Base-IC 95: 95° to 105° F

Product Advantages:

  • Temperature Range from 40° to 105°F
  • Fast Set Times
  • High Solids for Maximum Adhesion
  • Excellent Open Time for Broadcast
  • Tint in the Field with Pigment Packs
  • Low Odor and VOC Compliant

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS: Application of product should be placed between:

Base-IC 40: 40⁰ – 50⁰ F Base-IC 50: 50⁰ – 75⁰ F Base-IC 75: 75⁰ – 95⁰ F Base-IC 95: 95⁰ – 105⁰ F

The substrate temperature during application and curing must be within the limits listed above. Ambient temperature should not be used to judge application temperature. The use of a laser temperature gauge is necessary to find the substrate temperature. If the product is applied outside of these temperature parameters, the product may not cure properly and will not meet specifications in hardness or chemical resistance.

Tinting Instructions:

B-Tint packs are available in 14 standard colors. Tint pack colorant should be added to Part A and blended for 2-3 minutes prior to adding Part B.

Application Instructions:

BASE-IC is recommended only as a receiving coat under a full broadcast of flakes or quartz aggregate. Mixed product may be poured onto the floor in thin ribbons then spread and backrolled. A flat or notched squeegee is the most efficient method to quickly get the material across the floor. Alternatively, dip and roll the product from a roller pan. Do not over-work the product.

RECOAT: Recoat time listed above is directly affected by the ambient surface temperature. Apply additional coatings as early in the recoat window as possible for the best results. Even within the recoat window, it is recommended to abrade and clean the existing coat. If the recoat window has passed, it is critical to thoroughly abrade the surface with 80 to 120 grit sanding screens. Thoroughly clean the existing coating before abrading to remove potential contaminants.
