COCOON 560 is formulated for protection of surfaces subject to constant immersion. It has maximum surface hardness and very high abrasion resistance. COCOON 560 is a liquid polyvinyl chloride coating which can be sprayed on any clean, dry building surface. Wherever it is sprayed, it forms a tough, strong, permanent waterproof skin that is adaptable to most interior surfaces. COCOON 560 is used in many situations including sludge dewatering areas, shower rooms, swimming pools, vehicle cleaning facilities and other areas where abrasion resistance, washability, moisture protection, chemical protection are important.
- Attractive, jointless, hygienic seal that is highly resistant to impact and abrasion
- Maintains an effective seal against water and water-borne contaminants including chemical treatments and enzymes
- Maintains integrity of seals at pipe and duct penetrations, where expansion and contraction along dissimilar planes causes stress
- Resists abrasion from entrained solids of turbid waters in dynamic flow situations
- Low surface tension reduces drag coefficient at the surface/liquid interface
- Architectural colors available that maintain stability and definition in chemical environments

Polyvinyl Chloride Solution
Preparation and Application
All surfaces must be dry, free of dirt, loose debris, oils, grease, or any substance that could interfere with adhesion. Additionally, all surfaces should be modified in a manner to make them as smooth as possible by removing sharp projections and filling gaps and voids
A minimum surface profile of ½mm should be maintained for maximum adhesion. After proper masking, prime the entire surface to be coated with Vinyl Bond B, directly from the can, by spray or roller and allow the primer to dry. Close all penetrations through the surface by using a webbing coat. Webbing solution is made by mixing 1 part webbing agent with 3 parts Cocoon 560 to produce a milky, white solution that will support the following coats. Mix ½ gallon of Cocoon Pigment into a 5-gallon can of Cocoon 560 and mix until the color is uniform. Spray apply the mixed Cocoon 560 in multiple overlapping passes until a 20 mil dry film thickness has been achieved. The first should be very light to avoid breaking the webs. Properly applied, the coating should be free of voids and pinholes. Voids and pinholes must be re-sprayed to achieve a complete seal. Prior to the removal of any protection or equipment, a thorough inspection of the entire area should be completed, and all damage or deficiencies must be repaired and re-sprayed. All termination joints should be sealed with a polyurethane sealant. For recommendations regarding equipment, contact our Technical Department.
