E 1000 – Solids Epoxy Primer

E 1000 Solids Epoxy Primer

This 100% solids epoxy has very low viscosity and is ideal for any metallic system when a smooth and self-leveling finish is desired.

Maximum work time and pot life make this material ideal for creating a wide range of effects with metallic powders or when using as a basecoat in a broadcast system.

100% solids low viscosity epoxy

E 1000 100% solids low viscosity epoxy is designed to be used as a basecoat mixed with metallic pigments or as a thin mil solid color floor.


This material has extreme self-leveling capabilities and provides a smooth and opaque finish.


E 1000 offers maximum work time and potlife to make this material ideal for creating a wide range of effects with metallic powders.


SC 75 is an optional primer when applying a metallic system. SC 150 or WB 350 are the recommended topcoat over E 1000. Anti skid additives can be added to the topcoat for traction.


Benefits and Features

  • Foot traffic in 8-10 hours, 24 hour recoat window
  • Easy to mix two A to one B ratio
  • Ultra smooth and glossy finish when fully cured
  • Excellent chemical and abrasion resistance
  • Extreme adhesion to substrate
  • Low temperature cure
  • Zero VOC’s
  • Ultra low viscosity improves leveling and effects

Surface Preperation

New concrete must have a 28 day cure and CSP 2-3, prior to coating. In the case of older concrete flooring, remove all surface oils, paint, dust and debris.


Prior to coating, make sure the surface is clean, and passes the MVT. Fix any needed repairs using CR Mender or CR Patch and Coat before application.
