Product Applications
  • Cardolite Ultra LITE 2009H is usable in high solids coatings over concrete, primers, and metal substrates.
  • This product’s very low viscosity gives it good wetting and leveling properties, and its excellent yellowing resistance makes it ideal for topcoat applications.
  • Its ability to cure over a wide temperature range and non-critical mix ratio can bring coatings broad application latitude.
  • A durable, high performance, compatible barrier protection system for concrete can be formulated using this product in a topcoat or self-leveling coating over a surface primer based on another Cardolite phenalkamine.

Storage & Handling

Storage Condition

Cardolite products may absorb moisture and carbon dioxide when left in open containers, which could result in increased viscosity, discoloration, reduction of reactivity, and/or crystallization of the products. These products should be kept tightly sealed in their original containers when not in use, and stored in a cool, dry place.
