Item # PC-1000, PC-1000 Poly-Crete Amine Grout Resin


A 100% solids, two component modified amine epoxy resin. A low viscosity system recommended with selected aggregate blends for concrete repair in industrial and commercial applications. PC-1000 may be applied on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. PC-1000 has superior impact, abrasion and chemical resistance. PC-1000 Regular or Slow Cure is recommended for a 1/4" Epoxy trowel down mortar. PC-1000 Slow Cure is normally used for self-leveling slurries and broadcast systems.

Surface Preparation
Gulf Coast Paint Mfg., Inc. recommends four types of surface preparation. Any one of the four surface preparations may be sufficient or a combination of the four may be required depending on the condition of the concrete surface.
  1. High Pressure Wet Abrasive Blast Cleaning
    All loose and unsound concrete must be mechanically removed down to sound concrete by means of power tool equipment, such as, chipping/scaling hammers, rotary scalers, etc.

    High pressure water blast with sand injection all surfaces to remove all laitance, contaminants, and other foreign deposits to provide a sound, clean surface. Use clean, dry air to blow down these areas to remove excessive moisture.
