QUESTION: CAN I USE JUST ONE COAT OF DURA-KOTE 500 EPOXY?
Answer: Yes, you can! Although it will depend entirely upon your desired finished floor and the amount of protection you need, DK-500 Epoxy was designed specifically for this purpose!
QUESTION: WILL DK-500 EPOXY SELF-LEVEL AND FILL SMALL HOLES?
Answer: Yes, it certainly will! However, be sure not to try to bridge expansion joints as these are necessary to allow movement in the concrete.
QUESTION: CAN DK-500 EPOXY BE USED OUTSIDE?
Answer: No, epoxy coatings are not vapor-permeable and therefore should not be utilized in exterior applications.
QUESTION: I HAVE STRICT VOC LAWS IN MY AREA, CAN I USE DURA-KOTE 500 EPOXY?
Answer: Without question, yes! At zero grams per Liter of VOC content, DK-500 Epoxy can be utilized no matter how strict local VOC laws are!
QUESTION: IF I’M PUTTING DOWN A SECOND COAT OF DK-500 EPOXY, DOES IT HAVE TO BE SCREENED?
Answer: Yes, because of its chemical nature and high solids content, the second coat will not bond correctly without proper screening of first coat, using an orbital floor machine (buffer) with 100 grit sanding screens.
