Ramuc Hi-Build Epoxy offers the longest lasting protection for concrete, plaster, gunite, and fiberglass swimming pools, slides and spas. With its hard, tough, durable finish, epoxy provides unsurpassed stain, chemical, and abrasion resistance. Packaged in an easy-to-use 1-to-1 mix ratio, Hi-Build Epoxy rolls easily and builds up to 8 mils dry per coat rendering “smoothing” qualities on rough surfaces.
Epoxies are the coating of choice for indoor pools, spas, and whirlpools. All epoxy films will chalk (break down from the UV rays of the sun and water chemistry) over time. This is a natural degradation or “cleansing” of the top surface of the epoxy film. For compatibility purposes, the existing paint on previously painted surfaces of a pool or spa should be determined before painting. Aged plaster should be checked for integrity. Check for hollow or weak/crumbling plaster by using a ball-peen hammer or any other comparable method. Perform repairs to the plaster before painting.
Compatibility: For compatibility purposes, the existing paint on previously painted surfaces of a pool should be determined before painting. Use dark colors for accent painting only. Dark colors can prematurely fade or blister, especially in chemically treated water.
