POLAGARD SILVER FP is a clear fluoropolymer resin that is combined with micro-encapsulated nanoparticulate silver and hardened with polyurethane to produce a tough, flexible surface coating. This composite coating is especially effective to maintain clean surfaces that resist microbiological activity.
- Cured film is flexible, tough, and abrasion-resistant
- Has fast setting properties and rapid strength build
- Antimicrobial properties maintain extensive service life
- Appropriate cleaning and reactivation provide an exceptional sterile surface
- Flexible over wide temperature extremes, resistant to thermal shock
- Non-flammable in application, non-combustible as a finish coating
Approximate 350 to 400 sq ft/gal, depending upon substrate
Preparation and Application
All surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry, and completely free of loose particles, grease, oil, or any substance that would interfere with proper bond. Surfaces to be coated must be 5˚F above dew point during application and dry time.
Polagard Silver FP consists of three components. The first step is to blend the silver dust component into the resin component and mix for two minutes until thoroughly dispersed. The next step is to add the hardener component and stir for three minutes, then allowed to sit for 10 minutes or as long as necessary for all air to escape. Polagard Silver FP is normally applied as a top coat over Polagard Classic or Andek Firegard. The basecoat must be thoroughly dry before application of the Polagard Silver FP.
Polagard Silver FP may be applied by brush or airless spray in a thin, even coat. When lapping spray passes, remove runs with a roller or brush. Always maintain a wet edge throughout application. Final strokes or passes should all be in the same direction.
2 – 3 mils Dry Film Thickness (DFT) per coat
Approximately 1 hours at 70°F (21°C) and 50% RH
Approximately 24 hours at 70°F (21°C) and 50% RH
Clean tools and equipment with water before the CLEARCOAT FP
Do not use below 40˚F. Do not apply if the application cannot be protected from precipitation for 4 hours. Shelf life is 12 months when stored in proprietary containers between 45˚F and 95˚F.
Read the container label warning and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for important health and safety information prior to the use of this product.
