NEXTECH PRO™ APC-P8500 is a two-component, slow set, fast cure, low odor, hybrid polyaspartic coating system designed as a decorative yet durable coating for commercial and industrial flooring applications. Formulated with aliphatic chemistry, APC-P8500 is color stable allowing it to take UV exposure without color shifts seen with other coating systems such as epoxies. APC-P8500 is a 1:1 mix ratio system with sufficient pot life to be rolled, brushed, or sprayed. It has a robust application window with ability to be applied at low temperatures and high humidity. May be tinted using our "Designer Series" universal color pigments.
