Seal-Krete has introduced a two-part premium water-based epoxy coating for vertical and horizontal interior application in refineries, clean rooms, chemical processing plants and similar settings.

According to the company, Epoxy-Shell WB 250 is water-based but has solvent-based performance characteristics.

Epoxy-Shell WB 250

Epoxy-Shell WB 250 is a two-part water-based epoxy for industrial interiors.


The industrial strength product offers good adhesion, film hardness, chemical and abrasion resistance, hot tire pickup resistance and breathability, the company says.

With a slow working time, the product can be used for large interior projects, as well as priming and high traffic areas, the company says. It also works as a primer for flake floors and offers a fast return to service.

Hmmmm, so Paint Square runs this article where, "according to the company Epoxy-Shell WB 250 is water-based ... but the clean-up is to be performed "immediately" after use with an active solvent like xylene (?). I thought this was presented as a two part WATER BASED coating? Their moisture vapor emission standards don't make this any really special coating.

Hi Michael - Just to clear up some confusion. Epoxy-Shell WB 250 is soap and water clean-up. You may have been reading the Epoxy-Shell 1000 data sheet by mistake. The names are very similar. Epoxy-Shell WB 250 also has a higher perm rate than 100% solids epoxy at 1.10 vs. .80 for 100% solids, but we err on the side of caution when discussing surface preparation. It is more breathable than 100% solids. Epoxy-Shell WB 250 also has better Konig hardness and taber abrasion than other well-known brands.
