CFCM CFI Coatings WearCOAT 400Coatings for Industry, Inc. (CFI) offers WearCOAT 440FS, a fast-setting epoxy floor coating in a blush-resistant formula to help avoid amine blush.

A common issue with cool-temperature floor coating jobs, amine blush, is an oily surface imperfection caused by moisture or dew settling on uncured epoxy. While not fatal to the job, cleaning that blush slows projects from on-time completion.

Contractors report that WearCOAT 440FS is easy to apply evenly and consistently. Most importantly, the high-grade formula has proven superior in allowing them to take on projects through the winter months when higher humidity and cooler concrete substrates can yield this unwelcome problem.

A 100-percent solids epoxy mid-coat or top-coat, WearCOAT 440FS is formulated to cure fast in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit /4 degrees Celcius. Its fast-cure characteristics make it dry to touch in 2-3 hours and may be recoated in as little as 4 hours which helps it resist amine blush.

Contractors can count on this blush-resistant formula for flooring projects that are partially or wholly exposed to cooler, seasonal temperatures with higher humidity. WearCOAT 440FS is also ideal for floors in refrigerated, cold storage areas.
