OZ CATALYST is a formulated chemical additive containing latent oxazolidone, a revolutionary product that adds tremendous performance and strength characteristics to urethane-based coatings. When added to approved Andek products, it transforms them into denser, more highly crosslinked coatings that are more chemically resistant and capable of curing at any thickness. Fortifying a coating with OZ Catalyst enables it to overcome even the toughest performance requirements for sealing, waterproofing, and protection.
- Increases crosslink density to provide greater chemical resistance
- Allows curing to proceed throughout any depth or thickness of applied coating
- Has rheology adjusted for optimum coverage and penetration
- Improves tensile strength without reducing elongation
- Provides greater puncture resistance
- Accelerates cure rate at low temperatures
- Reduces surface defects caused by hailstones and other invasive precipitation
- Encapsulates well adhered coating remnants
- Provides the coating with greater resistance to intrusion from birds, rodents, reptiles, and vermin

Preparation and Application
Before use, also read the product data sheet for the product that is being combined with OZ-CATALYST. OZ-CATALYST may be used with POLAROOF RAC, ROOFDX SUPER, ENCAPSALL SUPER, or AIM #1. The use of OZ-CATALYST with any other Andek product should only be attempted after thorough consultation with the Andek Technical Department.
Open the container of OZ-CATALYST and determine if it is liquid and free-flowing. If it has been stored for any length of time below 50°F (10°C), it will have crystallized like honey. If so, warm the container gently with an indirect heat source at 100°F (38°C) until the OZ-CATALYST ’s consistency is thoroughly liquid.
Pour an entire quart container of OZ-CATALYST 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.
Approximately 6 hours at 70°F (21°C)
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).
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.
