Description

ANDEK ACCELERATOR is a formulated chemical additive containing a blend of chelated metal catalyst and amine accelerator for addition to urethane-based coatings. When added to approved Andek products, it accelerates the rate of curing at all temperatures. The accelerated curing process enables the professional applicator to complete an installation under extreme terminological challenges. ANDEK ACCELERATOR may be used with Polaroof RAC, RoofdX Super, AIM #1, Encapsall Super, and other approved Andek products.

Outstanding Features

  • Accelerates crosslink density development to provide earlier chemical and impact resistance
  • Allows curing to proceed immediately after initial set time
  • Accelerates cure rate at all temperatures
  • Adjusts viscosity of liquid coating without alteration of rheological profile
  • Reduces window of vulnerability to contamination or damage during curing
  • Allows for earlier application of topcoats or finishing layers

Usage ratio

1 quart Andek Accelerator per 5 gallon of coating

Container sizes:

1 quart

Technology

Amine and organotin compound

 

Preparation and Application

 

Application
Before use, also read the product data sheet for the product that is being combined with ANDEK ACCELERATOR .

ANDEK ACCELERATOR may be used with Polaroof RAC, RoofdX Super, Encapsall Super, or AIM #1. The use of ANDEK ACCELERATOR with any other Andek product should only be attempted after thorough consultation with the Andek Technical Department.

After 30 seconds of vigorous shaking, open the container of ANDEK ACCELERATOR , pour it into a 5 gallon pail of Andek coating, and stir thoroughly for 3 minutes, using an Andek ProPower Mixer or similar effective mechanical device. After thorough homogeneity has been achieved, let the mixture sit for 2-3 minutes so that trapped air bubbles can rise up and escape from the coating mixture. Then apply the coating, following the instructions on the coating’s container label.

Limitation
ANDEK ACCELERATOR will reduce the pot life of the coating to approximately 3 hours.  Although ANDEK ACCELERATOR will allow faster curing at low temperatures, do not apply any Andek coating to a frozen, damp, or wet surface.

Pot Life 
Approximately 3 hours at 70°F (21°C)

Storage
Store in a dry area and protect from direct sunlight and freezing. Keep container tightly sealed. Shelf life is 2 years from date of manufacture when stored in a factory sealed container between 45ºF (7ºC) and 90ºF (32ºC).

Disposal
Waste disposal must be in accordance with existing federal, state and local environmental control laws. Incineration is the preferred method of disposal.

Read the container label warning and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for important health and safety information prior to the use of this product.
