Technical data on Protecta-kote

APPLICATION

PROTECTA-KOTE is a one component polyurethane that can be easily applied by roller, brush or spray to provide an attractive non-slip coating. Unlike other coatings it is non-abrasive and so does not damage goods. It should be applied at between 5°C and 35°C.

CURING TIME
Depending on temperature and humidity PROTECTA-KOTE can normally be put into service in approximately 12-24 hours. Final chemical resistance and physical properties are reached in 4-7 days.

COVERAGE
1.2 - 1.5m2 / litre for normal applications with two coats.
0.8 - 1.0m2 / litre for high wear applications with three coats.

COLOURS
Standard PROTECTA-KOTE is available in Black, Grey, Blue, Green and Red. Protectakote (UVR) is available in White, Sand, Tan, Transparent, Red, Blue, Green, Mid Grey, Light Grey and Safety Yellow. The non UVR versions will, as with all aromatic polyurethanes, darken slightly with UV exposure and gloss is lost with time. The aliphatic UVR versions offer greater colour fastness in areas of high UV exposure and are less prone to fading in difficult conditions such as salt or chlorinated water.

OVERCOATING AND REPAIRS
PROTECTA-KOTE can easily be repaired or over coated after cleaning and sanding the surface.

SURFACE FINISH
PROTECTA-KOTE has a glossy finish which will go to a dull matt with exposure to UV light and can be applied to give a relatively smooth or rough finish.

SHELF LIFE AND POT LIFE
PROTECTA-KOTE has a shelf life of 18 months from date of manufacture and is best used within 24 hrs from first opening.

STORAGE
Store indoors between 5-25°C out of direct sunlight. Excessive temperature will cause thickening.

UV RESISTANCE
500 hrs of QUV accelerated weathering resulted in no deterioration in physical properties and no surface cracking. There will however be a loss of gloss and colour with continued exposure. For areas with high UV exposure we recommend using the UVR version.

IMPACT RESISTANCE
Due to its excellent flexibility, PROTECTA-KOTE has the ability to stay bonded to substrates even when they are deformed by impact.

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
PROTECTA-KOTE has good chemical resistance to most dilute acids, bases and salts and many solvents. Further details are available on request.

TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE
PROTECTA-KOTE recommended service temperature is from -30°C to 115°C
