EP1618 is an extremely clear epoxy coating, sealing, encapsulating and beautifying most surfaces 1/8” or thinner. EP1618 will cure to a clear, smooth, high-gloss finish. EP1618 will waterproof and provide protection against environmental exposure, cleaners and most solvents. EP1618 exhibits excellent impact resistance and adheres to most surfaces including concrete, metal, wood and fiberglass. EP1618 is tintable by using Eager Polymers EP7701 transparent dyes, INSTINT color dispersions and EP7702 opaque pigments.
EP1618 is widely used in zoological and marine environments, amusements parks, dioramas, modeling, bar & table tops, live-edge tables, and industrial applications such as flooring (ie factory, warehouse, garage, etc). EP1618 is 100% solids containing no solvents.
