WBSE-3 is the next version of our WBE-2. It has the same characteristics as WBE-2 with long pot life up to 8 hours after mixing A & B, tack free times of under 20 minutes, fast cure times in 16 mil or less film thickness, but has a Silicone backbone built into the Hardener. This enables the WBSE-3 to have higher temperature better chemical, higher gloss, optically clear and better UV resistance.
WSBE-3 can also come with Nano size glass filler similar to WBE-2. Glass filled WBSE-3 has a matte finish and non-skid surface. The ratio of Resin to Hardener is 1 resin to 1 hardener without glass. The glass is premeasured so it an be added to the A&B mix with a jiffy mixer. WBSE-3 can be used on concrete, asphalt, steel, aluminum, and wood. Colors are available, simply send in a pantone, RAL, or SW color number. Surface preparation is still the same as WBE-2. Like all water based products freeze protection is required for shipping.
Please contact our technical support group for specific substrate application procedures, equipment, safety gear and clean-up kits. Refer to SDS for material and safety standard procedures.
WBE-3 can withstand up to 5 freeze/thaw cycles.
Concrete must be fully cured and cleaned prior to any coating operation. The cleaning operation must not leave any residual detergents, acids or alkali cleaners. Concrete flooring should be prepared with shot blasting (SPCC min. 2), diamond grinding and/or machine sanding depending on the severity of the concrete surface condition.
After concrete floor is properly prepared, WBSE-3 self-priming material is to be applied within 45°F to 100°F. It is recommended that WBSE-3 be diluted up to 25% water and used as a primer coat to the bare concrete which will actively penetrate the porous surface. This primer coat should also be slightly A-Side rich to promote excellent chemical bonding for the sequentially applied base coat. This is accomplished by increasing the A-Side ratio by 10-12% PBV.
For non-skid floors using WBE-3, mix the A&B sides at 1/1pbv ratio with a jiffy mixer until uniform color is obtained. Add equal amounts of nano glass to the mixed A&B and stir with a jiffy mixer until a uniform color is reached. Apply 8-10 wet mils using a short knapp roller. You may add 5% water if the viscosity needs adjusting.
Recommended wet application film thickness as a primer should be 4-6 mils.
Recommended wet application film thickness as a base coat and topcoat be 8-10 mils.
Coverage at 8 mils is 300 sq. ft. / mixed gal.
When using WBSE-3 for coating steel, the substrate should be shot blasted to a sspc 4-6 mils profile. After shot blasting the substrate should be clean and dry. There should be no visible rust prior to coating. Apply 4-6 mil coating of WBSE-3 with the anti-corrosive zinc additive. WBSE-3 or WBSE-3 glass filled and pigments may be applied 4-6mils after the first coat dries to the touch.
