SP848 is a one component highly durable floor polish. This product can produce a high performance floor finish that performs well in low maintenance floor finish programs as well as in ultra high speed maintenance programs. The product can be used over many coatings and surfaces to provide a protective layer with excellent scratch and mark resistance. Available in 1 Gallon, 2 Gallons, 5 Gallons, and 50 Gallon Drum.

Typical coverage is 2,000 square feet per gallon per coat.  (This product is in concentrate form- should be mixed with water: 1 Part Concentrate with 1 Part Water.

Benefits:

• Provides a protective layer over many surfaces
• Long term gloss retention
• Exceptional response to high speed maintenance
• Pops when burnished
• Easy to dilute concentration
• Easy to apply

Recommended for showrooms, warehouses, laboratories, cafeterias, and most indoor chemical exposure areas with regard to concrete or cement. 
Topcoat: 3 to 4 coats are normally required to get the highest performance.

Cure Schedule: Allow the material to completely dry to obtain the maximum benefits of the application. Light foot traffic can usually be allowed within 8 hours. For heavier usage, allow for 24 hour cure before use. For high speed burnishing, allow to cure for 24-48 hours before burnishing

Test Area: Substrates and surfaces can be highly variable in texture and type;  accordingly, it is advisable to apply a small test area to determine suitability before undertaking the entire project.  


Preparation, Mixing and Installation Instructions for Primer / Base - HD PRO High Solids System. This kit includes HD PRO, our superior and most versatile base system. 


1) PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degrees F. Low temperatures or great temperature fluctuations may cause crystallization.


2) SURFACE PREPARATION: The most suitable surface preparation would be a fine brush blast (shot blast) to remove all laitance and provide a suitable profile. All dirt, foreign contaminants, oil, and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. A test should be made to determine that the substrate (Concrete, Laminate, Tile, Formica, MDF, etc) is dry; this can be done by placing a 4’X4’ plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate is dry enough to start coating. The plastic sheet testing is also a good method to determine if any hydrostatic pressure problems exist that may later cause dis-bonding.


3) PRODUCT MIXING: This product has a mix ratio of 12# part A to 3.85# part B for standard colors. Standard packages are in pre-measured kits and should be mixed as supplied in the kit. We highly recommend that the kits not be broken down unless suitable weighing equipment is available. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. After mixing, transfer the mixed material to another pail (the transfer pail) and again remix. The material in the transfer pail is now ready to be applied on the primed substrate. Improper mixing may result in product failure.


4) PRIMING: This product is only intended as a high solids primer suitable for most substrates. However, if the surface is very porous, then a lower solids primer might be more suitable to reduce the possibility of air release problems occurring. Contact your Spartan Epoxies sales rep for more information.


5) PRODUCT APPLICATION: The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. However, the material can also be applied by a suitable serrated squeegee and then back rolled as long as the appropriate thickness recommendations are maintained. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. If concrete conditions or over aggressive mixing causes air entrapment, then an air release roller tool should be used prior to the coating tacking o to remove the air entrapped in the coating. Thinner applications will not level as well as higher build applications.


6) RECOAT OR TOPCOATING: Although a topcoat is recommended, it is optional. Many topcoats are suitable for placement over this coating including both urethanes and epoxies. When top coating this product, you must first be sure that the coating has tacked o before top coating can commence. Before top coating, check the coating to verify no epoxy blushes were developed (a whitish, greasy film or de-glossing). If a blush is present, it must be removed prior to top coating. A standard type detergent cleaner can be used to remove any blush. Many epoxy coatings and urethanes are compatible for use as a topcoat for this product as well as multiple coats of this product as an intermediate build coat.


7) CLEANUP: Xylol is the most effective, but if you wish not to use xylol, you can use acetone or alcohol. Xylol is the best and most recommended. Remember to protect your skin and eyes.


8) CLEANING: Caution! Some cleaners may affect the color of the epoxy installed. Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.


9) RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the surface to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure). It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on actual complete system application, the surface may be slippery, especially when wet or contaminated; keep the surface clean and dry.
