Mixing Ratio
2 parts base (B) to 1 part (A) hardener by volume 
3 parts Ceramic Beads to 1 part actives by weight 
3 parts Ceramic Beads to 2 part actives by volume 
5 parts base (B) to 2 part (A) hardener by weight
Pot Life
Pot life for a unit mixed with sand is about 45 minutes at 70 ºF. Higher temperatures or larger volumes will shorten this time. Lower temperatures or spreading out the mix will extend the pot life.
ColorDark Gray
Clean UpAll mixing and applications tools may be cleaned with MEK or other suitable solvent immediately after use.
CoverageDURO-WEAR has the consistency of a heavy paste. Theoretical coverage at 1/2 inch is 0.3 ft²/kg
Surface Preparation
  • For maximum adhesion, material should be applied to a firm, clean, dry and abraded surface.
  • Clean greasy, oily or waxed surfaces with suitable solvent before applying material.
  • Best results will be obtained by abrasive blasting or grinding to give a surface profile.
Mixing & Application
Before mixing, make sure all surfaces are clean and dry.
Use complete units to insure correct mix ratio. Place the Base (B) portion of the Kit into a suitably sized and clean mixing container. Add the Hardener (A) to the Base (B) and mix for about 30 seconds. Once mixed, add the ceramic beads to obtain the desired consistency. Blend until thoroughly wetted, about 1 to 2 minutes. For a dryer mix use more beads, for a more fluid mix use less beads. Material temperature should be between 70 ºF and 95 ºF and surface temperature at least 65 ºF.
Overcoating
Vacuum, sweep, or otherwise remove all loose sand from the above surface. The resulting rough sand textured surface may be coated with a variety of topcoats, depending on the application and additional desired features.
StorageStore in dry area in closed containers between 50 ºF and 110 ºF. Shelf life at these conditions is greater than one year.
