Limitations on Use

Protect container from freezing and extreme heat.

Prior to using any epoxy coating over any surface treated with joint compound, consult the epoxy coating manufacturer and follow manufacturer’s specific recommendations regarding the preparation or suitability of substrates for the epoxy coating. Many epoxy coatings exert significant shear stress on the substrate as the strong epoxy film shrinks while curing/drying.This stress can cause the bond of the joint compound to fail, resulting in delamination problems.
