APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THANE-TEC 2200
CP 2200 is a high solids, two-component aliphatic polyurethane coating system. It is designed to be used as a clear top-coat, or it can be pigmented and used as a colored system.
CP 2200 has a unique chemistry allowing the ultimate level of chemical and abrasion resistance, and providing excellent weathering and gloss retention.
Due to its chemical nature, CP 2200 must be applied differently than common alkyd or 2K acrylics. Film builds should be limited to 4 - 5 wet mils (2 – 2.5 dry) per coat, With a 30 – 60 minute “flash-off” between coats.
- Thoroughly mix CP 2200 “B” prior to combining with the Component A.
- CP 2200 “A” does not require mixing
- Material Temperature 65 -75*F (optimal)
- Higher or lower temperatures will effect cure and

- Viscosity of material will be 150 – 200 cps. After mixing.
- Filter mixed materials before loading into spray equipment.
POT - LIFE
CP 2200 has a pot life of 70 – 80 minutes at 70 *F.
Temperature of the coating during mixing can affect the final cure and pot life properties.

55 – 60 *F 1:30-1:50 HRS-
70 – 75 *F 1 hr 15 minutes
90 – 95 *F 45 – 50 minutes
No induction period required. Mix until uniform.
Thinning of material not recommended
Store materials in a dry, cool place.
Surface and substrate preparation are vitally important to assure proper adhesion and surface appearance.
CP 2200 is designed to be a self – priming topcoat for polyurea, polyurethane and a variety of other substrates.
hile sanding is not usually required, DA sanding the surface with 320 – 400 grit paper will increase surface profile and assure a clean surface. Tack or clean entire surface with acetone if necessary.
Surface temperature of substrate should be between 60 – 90 *F to proper application performance and appearance.
When spraying CP 2200 over freshly sprayed polyuria,
The sooner that the CP 2200 is applied is better. As the polyurea cures over time the reaction completes and decreases the chemical bonding. While CP 2200 can be used over aged surfaces, coating freshly sprayed polyurea will assure maximum adhesion.
Dew point should be 10 – 15 *F below substrate surface temperature to avoid moisture related adhesion issues.
CP 2200 HS can be applied by the following:
Airless/ Air Assisted Airless/ Conventional spray
HVLP/ Gravity and Pressure Pot Feed/ Brush
Conventional/HVLP Fluid Tip

Siphon Feed .055 - .063”
Gravity Feed .047 - .063”
Conventional Gun 50 – 80 psi.
HVLP Gun 20 – 35 psi.
10 – 12 fluid ounces per minute
BASECOAT/COLOR HILIGHTING/CLEARCOAT PROCESS
- Basecoat #1 Apply a medium- wet first coat at 3-4 mils wet. Allow to “flash – off” for 30 – 60 minutes.
- Basecoat #2 Apply a wetter coat at 3-4 mils wet. Allow to “flash – off” for 30 – 60 minutes.
- Color Accents Apply coloring and accents at 3 -4 mils wet. Allow to “flash – off” for 30 – 60 minutes.
- Clear coat #1 Apply clear coat over surface with a dryer medium- wet coat at 3 – 4 mils wet. Allow to “flash – off” for 30 – 60 minutes.
- Clear coat #2 Apply a second dryer, medium wet coat at 3 – 4 mils wet. Allow to “flash – off” for 30 – 60 minutes.
- Clear coat #3 Apply a final wetted clear coat application at 5-6 mils wet. Handle after 12 hours.
- Allow coating system to cure for 7 – 10 days before putting into pool service.
The following drying times are based on 2 – 3 mil dry film thickness @ 70 *F, at 50% relative humidity. Excessive film thickness, cooler temperatures and inadequate ventilation will require longer cure btimes and could compromise coating performance.

Minimum application and substrate temperature should be at 55 -60 *F.
At lower temperatures solvent entrapment and curing issues will compromise coating adhesion and reaction.
CP 2200 should only be used by trained, professional painters only. Not for sale or use by the general public.
Before using read and follow technical data sheets and MSDS precautions. Follow all instructions outlined.
All materials associated with CP 2200 are to be considered hazardous.
Any coating system containing isocyanates can cause irritation to respiratory system and hypersensitive reactions. Asthma sufferers, those with allergies or any history of respiratory complaints should not use CP 2200 as it contains isocyanates after catalyzation.
Positive pressure hoods and/ or other forms of protection must be worn by applicator during use.
Do not sand, flame cut, braze or weld dry coatings without proper respiratory protection.
Do not allow liquid materials or overspray to enter any drains or waterways.
CP 2200 is a “FLAMMABLE” liquid that will ignite near smoking, sparks or open flames. Take proper precautions in its liquid and curing states to prevent ignition.
Follow all Federal, State and local guidelines mandated fo use in your particular application and use.
