Elite Crete Systems AUS-V™ Aliphatic Urethane Sealer is a clear, UV stable, two component with an optional third component (AUS-V™ AGG), high solids, high quality, very low VOC, non flammable, aliphatic urethane that was engineered and designed to be used on epoxy floor coatings.
AUS-V™ can reduce considerably staining from materials such as grease, oil, typical food stains and numerous household chemicals as well as adding improved scratch and abrasion resistance to epoxy floor coatings. This product AUS-V™ can reduce considerably staining from materials such as grease, oil, typical food stains and numerous household chemicals as well as adding improved scratch and abrasion resistance to epoxy floor coatings. This product also helps in hiding surface imperfections.
With a very low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) content of a mere 25 grams per litre, AUS-V™ is frequently used in place of conventional aromatic and aliphatic polyurethanes that have high solvent and VOC content and are not fitting for local, state and federal environmental regulations and conditions. AUS-V™ has virtually no odour and can be used without closing down and barricading individual zones during application and curing.
AUS-V™ is a clear protective finish that exhibits a slight eggshell texture as the finished product. With the addition of a third component, AUS-V™ AGG (aluminium oxide aggregate) a satin finish can be accomplished which will also improve scratch and slip resistance. Slip resistance can be modified to the desired level with the use of AUS- V™ AGG.
The coverage rate of AUS-V™ is between 12 and 13.5 square meters per litre. The first coat must be allowed to dry before a second coat can be applied. Additional coats have to be applied within 24 hours or a light sanding and solvent or alcohol wipe must be performed prior to an additional coat. Typically 2 to 3 coats of this product are applied to provide the highest quality protective floor finish.
A wet edge must be maintained while applying AUS-V™ in order to control roller lines and overlapping. Failure to follow the prescribed coverage rate can cause whitening and foaming if applied too thick, or alternatively, if applied too thin the coating will expose application lines and will not provide an even and consistent surface.
AUS-V™ can be applied by a high quality, non linting, lambs wool or synthetic 10mm roller cover. It can also be applied by an airless sprayer.
AUS-V™ should be applied on a surface with temperatures between 5°C and 32°C with dry atmospheric conditions present during application and curing. The floor surface must be clean and dry with no moisture, debris or impurities present at the time of installation. AUS-V™ cannot be open to heavy foot traffic until the finish has been fully cured.
