PERMACOAT 5000 is a 100% solids epoxy novolac floor coating. PERMACOAT
5000 can be used as a glaze coat for the PERMATEC
floors, or as a two coat flooring or containment system (30-80
mils). When applied as a two coat floor or containment system, a
silica broadcast is used between coats.
The PERMACOAT 5000 consists of two components, resin
and hardener, in both the horizontal and vertical formulations.
Its application is accomplished with rubber squeegees and short
nap paint rollers.
PERMACOAT 5000 is designed as a medium duty (30-80 mils) floor
coating and/or secondary containment system where moderate
mechanical abuse and chemical exposure are anticipated.
PERMACOAT 5000 can be installed over most sound floors,
including new or old concrete, steel and wood, providing a cost
effective alternative to high-build floor toppings.
- Food processing plants
- Chemical processing plants
- Pulp and paper mills
- Processing area in general
where chemicals are used
- Any area that requires a safe,
PERMACOAT 5000 allows for fast, easy application. It also offers
chemical resistance and physical performance much higher than
those found in paints and other thin mil coatings.
Note: At 30-50 mils, PERMACOAT 5000
provides excellent chemical resistance for splash and spill
exposures. In addition, when applied at 50-60 mils, it can often
be recommended for containment service. (For specific
recommendations refer to PERMATEC 5000 "Chemical Resistance
Guide" and your local distributor.)

Prior to application, the PERMACOAT 5000 (Resin, Hardener, and
Silica) and the substrate should be between 70 degrees and
Premix the Resin (Part A) for 30
seconds using a Jiffler mixer blade attached to a 500-750 RPM
drill. Add the Hardener (Part B) only when the batch is ready to
be applied. Mix for approx. 90-120 seconds. After mixing pour
immediately onto floor.
Use a rubber squeegee to spread the resin over the pre-measured
area to be covered. Immediately back roll the PERMACOAT 5000 with a short nap (1/8 inches) wool or mohair roller. At this
point several pre-specified readings should be made with a wet
mil gauge to assure uniform coverage. After the coating has been
back rolled and uniform thickness verified, the surface should
be saturated with a silica broadcast.
After the first coat supports
foot traffic, the excess silica can be removed. Within 24 hours
a second coat of PERMACOAT 5000 should be applied using the same
procedure, minus the silica broadcast.
PERMACOAT 5000 contains blended Epoxies as the resin and blended
Amines as the hardener. Protective clothing and gloves are
recommended to prevent sensitization to these materials. In case
of ingestion or eye contact, contact a physician immediately.

PERMACOAT 5000 is packaged in one and three gallon units. Each
unit consists of premeasured components, Part A (Resin) and Part B
Application thickness may
vary from 16 to 60 mils, depending on the expected
service conditions. Factors to consider are 1) length of
chemical exposure; 2)mechanical abuses; and 3) substrate
The cure time of PERMACOAT 5000 and other resinous
systems are very dependent upon the temperature of the
substrate. The chart below represents the approximate times for the respective service conditions, following
the last coat:
All mixing and application equipment should be cleaned
immediately after use. If this is done, soap and water, or
biodegradable cleaners can be used. If the material has begun to
set, more aggressive solvents may be necessary. Before using
solvents, refer to their respective MSDS
for handling considerations.
For systems designed for splash and spill exposures, routine
washdowns are recommended to reduce the length of chemical
exposure. This step is not necessary where the product is
recommended for containment service.

& SHELF LIFE
PERMACOAT 5000 should be stored at 50-90oF out of direct
sunlight. All containers should remain unopened until ready for
use. If stored as set out above, PERMACOAT 5000 has a minimum
shelf life of one year.
5000 SHOULD NOT BE INSTALLED
PERMACOAT 5000 should not be applied over substrates:
- which are wet during the
- subject to hydrostatic
- which are unsound
- which are contaminated and
cannot be cleaned
- at temperatures below 70oF
