Citadel Introduces Water-based Ultra-Hydro Stop H2O Primer™ that Cures in 6 Hours

Published on 2012-04-16. Author : SpecialChem

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- Citadel Polyurea Coatings® announces its new Ultra-Hydro Stop H2O Primer™. A water-based version of the popular Ultra-Hydro Stop Primer™, UHS H2O boasts many innovations to save installers both time and money.

UHS H2O is a two-component, 50% solids, water-based epoxy primer. It cures in only 6 hours, half the time of its predecessor, and doesn't need scuff sanding prior to re-coating. As a water-based formula, it can be safely applied to diamond ground concrete, eliminating the need for shot-blasting to profile. Ready to be applied with a simple roller or squeegee only 48 hours after concrete placement, UHS H2O saves time and labor both before and after use.

A moisture blocking and pH resistant primer, UHS H2O can hold back up to six lbs of vapor drive in a single coat, or 12 lbs with two coats. With its excellent adhesion to moist concrete, it's a perfect solution for low to moderate moisture issues in places such as basements and garages.

"The Ultra-Hydro Stop H2O Primer's™ balance of protection, speed and efficiency makes it the perfect solution for almost any installer's needs," says Patrick Ilfrey, CEO of Citadel Polyurea Coatings®.
