FOR CONCRETE & FIBERGLASS POOLS
• Concrete & Plaster
• Fiberglass & Gunite
• Resists Chlorine & U.V. Rays
• Tile Finish
Our commercial grade 2-part Epoxy pool paint! Pool Guard is our 2-part epoxy pool coating designed for maximum protection. Built on decades of experience. Heavy duty mix ratio of 1:1 is higher than our competitors lower mix ratios. Gives a tile finish that is easy to clean, durable against automatic cleaning machines, and gives great protection against chalking, algae & fade. Step up today and use the product that professionals trust!
Coverage is about 500-600 sq. ft. per 2 gallon kit per coat. 2 coats are recommended for proper application - No Primer Needed - Self Priming Paint
To figure out the amount of paint required: Length x Width x 1.7 = square footage x 2 (2 coats) Divided by 500 = kits needed (remember that the product is sold in a 2 gallon kit)
Proper Surface Preparation is important - Wash down with TSP solution (TSP powder into a 5 gallon bucket with water)using a scrub brush. Then take 1 gallon of muriatic acid & put into a 5 gallon bucket - fill with 4 gallons of water. Scrub down the pool with this acid solution. Then rinse with the TSP solution, and let the pool dry. Then paint with 1 coat, overnight dry, 2nd coat, wait 5 days to refill. Add 1 extra day for every day of rain. Enjoy!
SUGGESTED USES: Concrete, plaster, gunite, fiberglass pools, spas, etc.
COLORS: White, Medium Blue, Aqua, Royal Blue, Sky Blue, Black
FINISH: Gloss. For a non-skid finish, add pumice stone, sand or marble dust to paint as needed to achieve desired appearance.
VEHICLE TYPE: Epoxy Resin & Polyamide Curing Agents
SOLVENT TYPE: High Flash Naphtha, Diacetone Alcohol, Butyl Cellosolve
FLASH POINT: 81°F Seta Flash
SOLIDS BY WEIGHT: 48%
WEIGHT PER GALLON: 10 lbs. per gallon (varies by color)
RECOMMENDED DRY FILM: 4.6 mils
COVERAGE: 200/250 sq. ft per gallon or 400/500 sq. ft. per 2 gallon activated kit. 25% - 50% less coverage will occur on bare, rough, or sandblasted surfaces. A minimum of 2 coats are recommended for proper protection. Be sure to calculate this into your projected quantities needed to paint your pool surface before starting.
VISCOSITY AT 75°F (24°C): 120-140 KU (mixed). Add thinner as needed for proper rollout performance.
AVERAGE DRY TIME 75°F: Dries to touch in 6-8 hours. Lower temperatures & higher humidity will slow down dry times. Recoat with no sanding required between 16 hours and 72 hours. Allow a minimum of 5 days drying time for complete cure before filling pool with water. Add 1 day of extra drying time for every day of rain to the surface.
WAIT 5 DAYS AFTER FINAL COAT BEFORE FILLING POOL WITH WATER.
RECOMMENDED REDUCER: Xylene or High Flash Naphtha as needed for proper rollout performance. In VOC restricted area’s no reducer is allowed. In NON VOC restricted areas use xylene or xylol as needed for proper rollout performance.
RESISTANCE TO: Chlorine, Alkali, Algae, Mineral Oils, Fresh and Salt Water
RECOMMENDED PRIMERS: Self Priming
APPLICATION: Brush, Spray, Roller (preferred)
Roll: 3/8” or 1/2” nap mohair metal, lambskin, phenolic core roller. Keep roller wet. Roll in one direction, rewet, then cross roll.
Spray: Conventional Air 50 -70 psi, Tip Size .055-.070, Airless 2200- 2500 psi, Tip Size .019-.023.
SURFACE PREPARATION: Water blast the surface to remove all loose paint, dirt, oils and grease. Clean with a Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) wash, scrubbing surface to get rid of oil, dirt and suntan lotions, and then etched with a 15-20% solution of muriatic acid. Then thoroughly rinse with TSP & flush with plenty of fresh water and allowed to dry thoroughly. Glossy surfaces should be power sanded to a 80 grit profile for proper adhesion.
LIMITATIONS: Do not apply if material, substrate or ambient temperature is below 50°F or above 90°F. NOT FOR VINYL LINED POOLS.
SHELF LIFE: Minimum 36 months
MIXING: Mix for 2-3 minutes both Part A & Part B individually, and then mix 2-3 minutes the combined volumes (1:1 Mix Ratio). Allow mixed solution to rest for 5 minutes maximium before using. Mix only what you expect to use in a 1-2 hour period.
POT LIFE: 1-2 hours at 75°F, 50% Humidity. Higher temperatures will substantially shorten the pot life. Only mix enough Part A Base and Part B Activator that you will use within 1-2 hour time.
PACKAGE: 1 Gallon cans (2 per case), 5 gallon pails
