FAQs for Ultraflex 5000S

Q: Why is Ultraflex 5000S different and better than every other coating on the market?

A: Ultraflex 5000S is a high quality urethane compound that resists ultraviolet degradation better than any similar product on the market. It chemically cures quickly, is safe even for all potable water applications and maintains over 200% elongation at 0F. Ultraflex 5000S is not your standard waterproofing material.

Q: What justifies the higher than average price for the coating?

A: The price for Ultraflex 5000S has changed somewhat with the severe increase in the price of crude oil as it is a petroleum based urethane. We believe the price is justified as its blend provides extraordinary properties.

Q: How is it installed?

A: On flat surfaces it is mixed in 120 sq. ft. quantities, poured onto the surface and spread with a serrated squeegee to a thickness of 60 mils. On other surfaces, such as vertical ones, spraying is the preferred method.

Q: What is the curing time?

A: The product has a 30-40 minute pot life, allowing adequate time for installation. However it then cures in only a few hours and can be walked on in 12-24 hours.

Q: How clean must the surface be?

A: Ultraflex 5000S loves porosity, rough clean surfaces, and bonds very well. All that is required is a clean, dry surface that is free of loose or flaky scale.

Q: What are the hazards of using or applying the product?

A: This material is safe, non-hazardous, and requires no special safety equipment or skilled labor.

Q: Where has the product been used?

A: It has been used to protect pipes in the Gulf of Mexico, prevent corrosion on bridges and other steel structures, sealing docks, protecting piling, sealing cooling tower basins, encapsulating bridges coated with lead based paint, and rebuilding roofs.

Q: Is Ultraflex 5000S available only in black?

A: No, it is also available in gray for large special orders, and also in a white topcoat that is also reflective, in case it’s needed to reduce solar impact.

Q: What more do I need to know?

A: Ultraflex 5000S has been used internationally for years without a single warranty claim. If you have a need for corrosion protection, waterproofing, or any other of hundreds of possibilities please contact us for a free analytical review and response to your problem.
