FE3100 Flexible Epoxy Coating General Description

This is a two (component, 100% solids) Epoxy derived from newly developed and advanced technology as a thin or thick film coating to a variety of properly prepared substrates and/or surfaces. FE3100 displays exceptionally high flexibility (elongation break >150%) with high tensile strength (>3000 psi), strong low temperature properties, moisture, abrasion and tear resistance while providing corrosion protection with outstanding appearance.

FE3100 exhibits excellent resistance to salt and fresh water, various chemicals and mild splash/spillage of solvents. It will provide extended service life in industrial, Marine and commercial applications.

IconSurface Preparation

Good surface preparation is essential to a satisfactory coating system. Surfaces to be coated should be clean and dry. Remove all oil, grease, mildew or other contamination by solvent or detergent cleaning or other effective means.


Apply in good weather when air and surface temperature are above 50�F and surface temperature is at least 5° F above the dew point. For optimum application properties, material should be between 70° to 100°F prior to mixing and application. Maintain unmixed material in closed containers in protected storage at 40° to 100° F.

Ferrous Metal

For proper performance, "Commercial Blast Cleaning" ( SSPC-SP6 TO SP10) is recommended as minimum. Create a profile of 2-3 mils. For best performance in critical areas of high moisture, condensation, chemical splash or spillage, etc, surface preparation should be "Near White Blast Cleaning (SSPC-SP10). Blasted surfaces should be coated ASAP after blasting to avoid rusting and contamination of the surface. Brush apply one coat of 21FE3100 over welds, corners and crevices. Allow a minimum of 4 hours to dry of the brushed areas. Apply a full coat of 21FE3100 over entire area to a minimum 8.0 mils DFT (200 microns). Check DFT and in areas with less than 8.0 mils DFT should have an additional coat applied.


Surface must be clean, dry, properly cured and free from all contaminants. Older surfaces should be "Brush Off Blast" to provide an etched surface and to remove contaminants and laitance. Remove all dust before coating. Prime it with "SEAL-IT" Epoxy concrete sealer clear. Allow to dry at least 12 hours. Apply a full coat of 21FE3100 over an entire area at a minimum 8.0 mils (200�) DFT minimum. Application on Very Porous Surfaces may require multiple coats to assure that the surface is completely sealed, up to 24 mils DFT applied in 3 consecutive coats. At tack free to touch apply 2-3 mils of FPUWC1, or FPUWC1 AP or FPUWC15 depending on degree of immersion and UV exposure.


This is a two-component coating supplied in two containers as a unit. Always mix a complete unit in the proportions supplied. Use a power agitator for each component. Pour contents of Component "B" in component "A". Allow 10 to 15 minutes induction time @ 70�F before using the coating. Mix material again just prior to the application. The Usable pot life depends on the temperature of the material. Refer to pot life section. Agitate before use, with occasional stirring during use. As pot life expires, sag resistance may be reduced. Do not mix any more materials than can be applied in approximately 1 � hours @ 75�F.


Material is supplied at airless spray viscosity and should not require thinning. If required thin with � to 1 pint of FUT thinner per gallon if necessary for spray application. Add thinner only at a time of mixing. Do not add thinner to thickening material to extend pot life.

Icon Application

Spray application is preferred for proper film built and best performance. Brush application is acceptable for touch up and small areas. Roller application may require special care to prevent bubbling and may require more than one coat to attain proper film thickness. Apply @ 12 mils wet film thickness to achieve 8.0 mils DFT, unthinned. In severe cases 21FE316 should be applied in two coats to reach a total 16 mils DFT.


WARNING: Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Possibly harmful and/or irritating if material or vapors are absorbed through skin. Keep away from heat, open flame and sparks. Keep out of reach of children. Use Necessary safety equipment, including airfed respirators if spraying. Use non sparking tools, ladders, shoes, explosion proof electrical equipment meeting National Electrical Standards etc..
