Enamo Grip is a tough, medium speed, moisture curing, two component polyurethane enamel, which will provide outstanding resistance to water and humidity, stains, chemicals, and solvents, as well as tremendous scuff, mark and impact resistance.

Enamo Grip is used as a top coat for colour, UV protection and industrial strength to guard against chemical splash and acid rain. Resembles a car finish with self leveling properties. Available in clear and custom colours.

It’s also used for lining swimming pools with the “Pool” clear finish coat. Ship hulls and other underwater uses. Ideal for use on bridges applied over Rust Grip®, Moist Metal Grip or by itself for complete encapsulation of the metal, providing protection from rust and corrosion for a minimum of 20 years in normal circumstances. Resistant to hail damage and similar abuses that create opportunities for rust and corrosion.

Completely UV-controlled and weather resistant. Enamo Grip can be used on flooring for a tough, long wearing surface. In summary, the overall toughness, durability, of Enamo Grip makes it the ideal choice for architectural maintenance situations that require the utmost in exterior durability – Learn More SPI >

  • Surface must be clean and completely dry, with no loose debris or particles, rust, dirt, oil, films or residues of any kind. Enamo Grip will cover previous coatings if they are fully adhered to the surface
  • Mechanically stir base

Application methods:

  • Airless or pot sprayed: tip size .024; apply in two coats
  • Roller: use 1/4″ nap commercial roller; apply in two coats using an added bubble breaker in formula
  • Brush: apply in two coats
  • Add an additional coat for vertical surfaces

Applied rate:

  • Metal: 250 sq. ft./gal
  • Concrete or wood: 200 sq. ft./gal

Film thickness:

  • Wet: Metal – 6.5 mils
    Concrete – 8 mils
  • Dry: Metal – 3 mils
    Concrete – 4 mils

Temperature:

  • 10°C (50°F) – 38°C (100°F)
  • Colder temperatures will increase dry time

Dry times:

  • 1 hour to touch
  • 4 hours to handle
  • 2 hours to recoat

Full cure:

  • 4-5 days in warm temps
  • 7-10 days in cool temps

Precautions:

  • 4 hour pot life at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 1 hour pot life at 90 degrees Fahrenheit

Can withstand Skydrol® hydraulic fluids used in aircraft when applied to flooring. Available in clear and custom colours. Not for underwater use.

Typical Uses:

  • Outstanding alkali resistance and very good acid resistance;
  • For architectural and maintenance solutions;
  • Hardwoods, pretreated metals, primed metals and concrete;

Application tip

Enamo Grip is a very thin coating. It needs to be applied by ‘feeling the coating go to heavy’ and it runs easily. If it does run the whole area needs to be wiped off with acetone as the coating has trouble taking to the area smoothly.
