Hudco Formula 5000

Ballistic Grade Aramid Fiber Reinforced Wear Compound

HUDCO Formula 5000 combines high-strength epoxy resins with a dense loading of wear-resistant alumina and silicon carbide ceramic aggregate. Used as an easy- to-apply coating, HUDCO Formula 5000 is a cost-effective alternative to the installation of wear-resistant ceramic tile. Repairs to worn equipment made with Formula 5000 provide the advantage of a prolonged wear life far beyond that of the original part.

Reinforced with Ballistic Grade Aramid Fiber
After 12 years of unequaled performance, HUDCO in 1994 reformulated Formula 5000 to include ballistic grade aramid fiber reinforcement in the polymer matrix. The addition of ballistic grade aramid fiber, one of the toughest materials in existence, has significantly improved the phenomenal properties of HUDCO Formula 5000. The unique concept of using ballistic grade aramid fiber to reinforce the matrix of HUDCO Formula 5000 demonstrates HUDCO's commitment to world class technology.

Application Instructions

Surface Preparation: 
(A) Surface of substrates must be clean and sound. Remove grease, oil, or other foreign material with acetone, wire brushing, or sandblasting. Acid etching the surface is acceptable if followed by thorough flushing with clean water.
 
(B) Roughen surface by grinding or sandblasting (3-5 mil surface profile) Surface must be completely dry with a minimum surface temperature of 75° F before applying.
 
Mixing: Mix 4 parts of HUDCO Formula 5000 Resin to 1 part of HUDCO Formula 5000 Hardener by weight. Kits are supplied in the correct ratio. Ensure that the sides of the mixing container are scraped into the mixture. Mix several minutes, until consistent color is achieved.
 
Application: Apply product to prepared surface and use supplied tools to achieve desired finish.
 
Curing: At 75° F, product will gel in 30 min. Initial cure will occur in 2-4 hours. Final cure occurs in 24 hours.
 
Safety Precautions
CAUTION: For Industrial Use Only. Keep Away From Children.
 
HUDCO Formula 5000 Resin contains epoxy resin which is harmful if swallowed. After prolonged exposure it may irritate skin and cause sensitization and/or dermatitis.
 
HUDCO Formula 5000 Curing Agent contains organic amine compounds which are harmful if swallowed. After prolonged exposure or repeated skin contact it may cause irritation, sensitization and/or dermatitis.
 
Emergency and First Aid Procedures

 

  • Eye Contact - Irrigate with clean water for 15 minutes and call a physician.
  • Skin Contact - Wash with soap and water.
  • Inhalation - Remove to fresh air and provide oxygen if necessary.
  • Ingestion - Call a physician at once. Give milk or white of egg beaten with water. Then give a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water to induce vomiting.
 
Protection Procedures
If used in a confined or an enclosed area, use an air supplied mask or respirator with canister for organic vapors and provide mechanical exhaust ventilation. Use protective gloves, safety glasses, and protective clothing. Avoid contact with skin and clothing. Contaminated clothing should be laundered before wearing again. Contaminated shoes should be thoroughly cleaned before wearing again.
 
Storage
HUDCO Formula 5000 Resin and Curing Agent should be stored in a cool, dry area. Shelf life is a minimum of one year in unopened containers when stored at 70° F – 85° F.
