Installation Recommendation

Wil-Cor, Inc. recommends supervision by Wil-Cor or that this product be installed by experienced fiberglass installers. Preparation, mixing and application information is provided for installers with adequate installation experience.

Mixing

Armor Plate 800-3 is mixed with AP 60 (MEK Peroxide) catalyst. 0.75 oz. to 2.5 oz. of MEK Peroxide should be used for each gallon of AP 800-3 resin. The mixing ratio of resin and catalyst will vary with temperature.

Mix resin (part A) and catalyst (part B) at the job site, immediately prior to application. The pot life of AP 800-3 is very short (15 min.) so only mix quantities that can be used during a 10-minute period.

Surface Preparation

Surfaces to which Armor Plate 800-3 is to be applied should be clean, dry and free from loose debris. Steel should be sandblasted to a near white finish to remove rust and contamination.

Application

Armor Plate 800-3 may be applied with a brush, roller, or by spray equipment. AP 800-3 should be applied to steel within 6 to 8 hours of sandblasting.

Packaging

Armor Plate 800-3 is available in stock sizes of 1-gallon, 5-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums.

Coverage and Estimating

The approximate coverage of Armor Plate 800-3 is 25 sq. ft. / gallon per laminate of 1.5 oz. chopped strand mat.

Shelf Life

The expected shelf life of the Armor Plate 800-3 is a minimum of 6 months when sealed tightly and stored at temperatures around 77 °F.
