PERMAFLEX 1100 is a 100% solids epoxy floor coating with
exceptional elongation properties. The PERMAFLEX 1100 system can
be used as a flexible base coat for the PERMATEC high build
floors, or as an independent multi-coat, flooring/deck coating
PERMAFLEX 1100 is designed as a medium duty (30-100 mils)
floor/deck material where flexibility, chemical resistance, and
epoxy toughness are important. PERMAFLEX 1100 can be installed
over most sound substrates including old or new concrete, steel
and wood. PERMAFLEX 1100 is ideal for the treatment of operating
PERMAFLEX 1100 is also ideal for
use as a secondary containment system. When used as a
stand-alone containment system a minimum of 50 mils is
- Chemical containment areas
- Vibrating substrates
- Parking decks
- Other areas where substrate
movement is anticipated
PERMAFLEX 1100 provides high impact and tear resistance, while
maintaining high tensile strength and elongation properties. PERMAFLEX 1100
provides the superior adhesion of an epoxy with urethane
elasticity along with excellent impact resistance in
temperatures at and below freezing.
- Low odor
- Non-skid safety finish
The following is a brief summary of concrete preparation and the
application procedure for PERMAFLEX 1100. This information is
intended for use in the system evaluation, applicators should
refer to the "PERMAFLEX 1100 Application" application bulletin for
more detailed application procedures.
Prior to application, the PERMAFLEX 1100 the resin, hardener, and
substrate should be between 70 degrees and 95
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 first coat of resin at
approximately 8-12 mils over the pre-measured
area to be covered. Immediately back roll the PERMAFLEX 1100
with a short nap (1/8 inches) wool or mohair roller. After the coating has been
back rolled and uniform thickness verified, allow the coating to
After the first coat supports
foot traffic, and within 24 hours, a second coat of PERMAFLEX
1100 should be applied using the same procedure, followed by a
silica broadcast to saturate the surface.
After the second coat supports
foot traffic, the excess silica can be removed. A final 8-12 mil
topcoat should then be applied to encapsulate the exposed
Note: There are a few cases when PERMAFLEX
1100 by itself may not be adequate for the anticipated movement
of the substrate. In these instances, fiberglass in the form of
woven roving should be incorporated into the system.
The following recommendations
should be noted when deciding whether or not to use woven
- If the PERMAFLEX 1100 is to be
used as complete underlayment prior to installing a
"heavy duty" (1/8 - 1/4 inch) topping, woven
roving should be used.
- If the PERMAFLEX 1100 is to be
used as a crack, control join or, in certain cases,
expansion joint encapsulation, woven roving should be used.
- Woven roving should not be
used below thin coatings (25-35 mils) unless it can be
recessed into the substrate.
|Bond Strength to Concrete
tensile strength of concrete. Failure in concrete
PERMAFLEX 1100 is packaged in one and three gallon units. Each unit consists of
pre-measured components, Part A (Resin) and Part B
Application thickness may
vary from 30-100 mils, depending on the expected
service conditions. Factors to consider are 1) traffic
load; 2) movement and; 3) substrate texture.
The cure time of PERMAFLEX 1100, as with other resinous
systems, is very dependent upon the temperature of the
substrate. The chart below represents the approximate
times for the respective service conditions, following
the last coat:
Please contact your distributor or ChemProof Polymers.
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
wash downs are recommended to reduce the length of chemical
exposure. This step is not necessary where the product is
recommended for containment service.
& SHELF LIFE
PERMAFLEX 1100 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, PERMAFLEX 1100 has a minimum
shelf life of one year.
PERMAFLEX 1100 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.
MSDS are available for this product upon request.

WHERE PERMAFLEX 1100
SHOULD NOT BE INSTALLED
PERMAFLEX 1100 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
