ENDURA-TUF® ET-2000 is a patent process using 100 percent solids, solvent-less, multi-component composite materials designed to more fully utilize the Ecosystem® technology, to include the injection of solid filler components such as sand, chopped fiberglass, ground rubber, ground glass, and other types of filler to yield different physical properties at densities exceeding the solid resin materials.
ET-2000 process with select graded silica sand was developed to offer high density products as chemical resistant, protective, or secondary containment lining systems for areas requiring a high-compressive strength (impact resistance), such as drum storage, forklift, vehicular, or heavy equipment traffic and adhere very well to concrete, wood, asphalt, and metal surfaces.
ET-2000 process utilizes a pressure vessel (blast pot) for the injection of fillers at the spray nozzle, eliminating abrasive pump wear. The amount of fillers being injected into the spray applied material can be regulated on an "as needed" basis for density control.
ET-2000 process allows GET licensed contractors to spray apply Endura-Flex® materials with high loads of fillers onto substrates that have been traditionally "uncoatable." ET-2000 process gives a continuous, uniform, and instantaneous blend of composite materials, increasing production rates and decreasing manpower requirements normally associated with hand-mixed and hand-applied epoxy composite systems.
For specific job performance criteria, refer to the corresponding product data sheet. As examples, ET-2000 process combined with Endura-Flex® 1988 offers the benefit of a material recognized with case histories in waste water and waste sewage exposures with excellent chemical resistance (alkalines and acids), as well as conformance to ANSI/NSF standard 61 for potable water. For potable water and waste treatment, the spray applied ET-2000 material works very well as a replacement to cementitious grouts and hand-applied epoxies for hard to coat concrete (rock pockets, honeycomb, bug holes). Equipment modifications can increase working time of the spray applied material for subsequent hand troweling to a smooth finish where a smoother finish is desired. ET-2000 process combined with Endura-Flex® 1990 offers the benefit of a material with case histories in secondary containment exposures to hydrocarbons and other aggressive chemicals plus offers high impact composite coatings direct-to-earth and concrete for secondary containment systems.
