Benefits of EP Colorshield

How do you apply EP Colorshield (wall coating)?

Applying the wall coating can be done very easily with a roller or brush on almost all substrates. In the following step-by-step plan we explain how you can treat your wall with EP Colorshield.

Tools and supplies:

Step 1. Prime the substrate

Before applying Colorshield, it is important that you properly prepare the surface with a primer. This prevents the surface from absorbing and improves the adhesion of the epoxy roller coating. Choose a primer that suits the type of surface. At Polyestershoppen you can choose from different primers:

Mix the primer base with the hardener and mix carefully. Apply the primer with a velor roller. After curing, light sanding may be necessary to remove unevenness. After applying the primer, you can proceed with the preparation and application of EP Colorshield.

Step 2. Prepare EP Colorshield

Preparing the epoxy roller coating is very simple:

  • Carefully weigh the base component and hardener according to the mixing ratio on the packaging (100:25).
  • Mix the components thoroughly for 3 minutes.
  • Pour the mixture into a clean mixing container and stir again gently but thoroughly.

Step 3. Apply/process EP Colorshield 

After you have prepared the wall coating, you can now apply it to the wall.

  • You simply apply EP Colorshield with a velor roller or paint brush (the application time is 20 minutes at 20℃).
  • Let the roll coating cure for 24 hours at 20℃.
  • If necessary, after sanding with 180 grit, you can apply a second coat of Colorshield.
  • If you are using the coating in a damp room (such as a bathroom or kitchen), you must allow the epoxy coating to cure for 4-5 days before you can use the treated room. For application in other rooms, the roller coating is cured after 2-4 days.
Tip: always use the right protective equipment while processing EP Colorshield.

Step 4. Finish

EP Colorshield gives a glossy finish. Do you prefer a different gloss level? You can use the following products to adjust the gloss. We also recommend finishing Colorshield with DD Lacquer to improve colour retention.
