NUGARD EPOXY DETAILS
NUGARD is a new water-based epoxy floor coating that out performs regular epoxy and urethane products.
NUGARD is an epoxy protective coating for concrete, timber and masonry surfaces in indoor applications and is not recommended for outdoor use. NUGARD’s water-base allows it to be used in industries where odour and non-tainting is important (e.g. food, beverage, pharmaceutical and textile industries). We have a large number of examples of Industrial and commercial floors that have stood the test of time.
NUGARD EPOXY BENEFITS
NUGARD water based epoxy has many benefits:
- It eliminates the hazard, replacing solvent borne epoxies, urethanes or alkyd enamels
- It substitutes the hazard, being water based it phases out and replaces solvent based paints
- It is safe to use and environmentally safe
- It outperforms, solvent based epoxies and solvent based polyesters
- It is tough, chip proof and fire resistant
NUGARD is different – it is a water borne two pack coating composition that cross links to produce a monolithic floor treatment in thickness from 1mm to 10mm. It is durable, washable and abrasion resistant. It can be cleaned with most industrial cleaning compositions without damage. NUGARD is the “state of the art” in water based two component coating systems that supercedes regular Epoxies, Urethanes or Polyesters.
We recommend you do not use a single pack paint. If you want to have a long lasting coating for your garage or driveway, single pack epoxies have a short life span and the money you save in the short term will not stand up to the years of hard wearing of a two pack with chemical curing like nugard. It just not worth it. Consider the long term gains. This will last years!

NUGARD is water borne – non toxic without hazard and with much less “painty odor” than solvent based epoxies during application. No need to shut down operations while NUGARD is being applied to concrete, timber or masonry surfaces.
Mix NUGARD Pack B to NUGARD Pack A slowly. Allow 15 minutes Induction Time before use.
NUGARD is self-sealing – requiring no sealer or undercoat. Just apply 2 coats. NUGARD resists a wide range of chemicals and oils comparable to epoxy, polyurethane and polyester systems. Resists acids and alkalis.
NUGARD is quick drying – you can apply two coats in a day. Leave 4 hours before applying a second coat. For best results, leave overnight before re-coating.
