Epoxy.com Product #693 Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Sealer and Coating requires
the addition of Epoxy.com Product #695 MMA Hardener to start the hardening
process. The amount of hardener must be adjusted to the respective surface temperature (see table
below). At temperatures below 40 ° F, Epoxy.com Product #696 Accelerator must be used in addition to the amount of hardener used at
the 40°F level (about ½ oz by
vol./gal. @ 32°F up to 2.0 oz by vol./gal. @ -20°F).

Epoxy.com Product #693 Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Sealer and Coating is considered to be a low maintenance flooring solution. Certain textures and environments,
however, require specific cleaning with bristled brushes. Due to the thermoplastic character of MMA resins,
black marks can occur from fork lifts and tires skidding.
Store in a cool and dry place, below 80°F, out of direct sunlight. Do not store near open flame or food. Shelf life
is 6 months in the original unopened containers.
Adequate cross ventilation should be provided. Good ventilation during the processing ensures a good cross
linking and hardening. Read, understand and follow Material Safety Data Sheets and Application Instructions
prior to use.
Use only as directed. If substrate and/or material temperature is above 90°F, DO NOT apply material.
