Low Temperature Epoxy (L.T.E.) Clear: Features and Usage
Low Temperature Epoxy (L.T.E.) is a specially formulated, 100% solids, acrylated epoxy system designed to provide positive cure down to 20º F and extremely rapid room temperature cure. Its low viscosity contributes to easy handling, excellent substrate wetting, and the development of strong bonds to a variety of substrates, including damp concrete. L.T.E. cures blush-free even under cold, damp conditions.
This material possesses a desirable combination of flexibility, chemical resistance and good impact resistance at low temperatures. It is available in a thickened paste version for easy joint and crack filling. L.T.E. was developed for use in cold weather exterior concrete repair and refrigerated industrial areas where conventional epoxy systems cannot cure completely or cure too slowly to be of practical use to the coatings contractor. Because it is ready for traffic in 2-3 hours at room temperature, L.T.E. is very useful in rapid turnaround concrete repair and floor coating projects. Its low modulus characteristics make this material well suited for industrial joint and crack repair. It is the ideal primer for use under fast set polyurea systems. Polyurea materials can be applied directly to wet L.T.E. for guaranteed intercoat adhesion. It is also used as a fast set, damp surface primer under other epoxy materials and polyurethanes. The standard material will have a tendency to amber and is not suitable as a decorative top coat. A special hardener is available that eliminates this problem. Specify L.T.E. (C.S.).

- Short work life at temperatures over 60° F requires careful planning and application.
- Do not use L.T.E. (C.S.) over damp concrete.
