1. Surface Preparation

clean surfaces to remove all dust, dirt and grease. For highest bond strength, chemical cleaning is required (use KoreKote Surface Cleaner®)

2. Mixing

Mix 2:1 ratio by volume of Part A (resin) and Part B (hardener) together. Mix thoroughly until uniform color and consistency throughout. Mechanical Stir Stick (drill with mixing paddle) is recommended.

3. Potlife

Potlife of mixed coating is approximately 20 minutes at 70˚F if material is left as a unit in mixing container. Higher temperatures reduce potlife and accelerate curing. CAUTION: Mixing large quantities (more than a 3 gallon batch size) generates significant heat and shortens potlife.

4. Application

Begin by pouring mixed material in a straight line 2 – 3 feet from the desired starting edge of the area being coated. Use lint free 3/8” nap roller on roller frame and spread material evenly over surface. Use brush to do cut-ins along edges and corners if necessary. When material is spread out in a thinner layer, the worklife is extended to approximately 35 minutes (do not apply in temperatures below 50°F).

5. Curing

Allow coating to cure at 50˚F or higher.

6. Curing profile at 70°F

  • Gel time: 40 minutes
  • Crystallized: 4 hours
  • Cured: 24 – 48 hours (depending on temperature and application)

7. Cleanup

Use denatured alcohol (not necessary to use harmful/toxic solvents) to cleanup uncured material and tools.


Avoid contact with eyes and / or skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. Provide adequate ventilation to control vapor. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.


IF SWALLOWED:Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a POISON CONTROL CENTER if you feel unwell.


IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice. Immediately call a doctor.


IF ON SKIN (or hair): Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water or shower. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical attention.


IF INHALED: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfrotable for breathing. Immediately call a doctor.


Prolonged exposure to Part A (resin) may cause allergic skin reaction on sensitive skin and possible respiratory tract irritation. Prolonged exposure to Part B (hardener) may cause an allergic skin reaction on sensitive skin.

This Warranty is offered by KOREKOTE®, hereinafter referred to as “Manufacturer”, to the original purchaser of ARMORKOTE®, hereinafter referred to as “Buyer”, and is subject to the following terms and conditions:

1. COVERAGE The authorized ARMORKOTE® Applicator identified in this certificate warrants that the pool described herein has been coated by the Applicator with the ARMORKOTE® polymer, two part epoxy resin finish coat system in full compliance with the Manufacturer’s recommendations and specifications and contains solely those undiluted products recommended and provided by Manufacturer for application to the pool shell identified herein. Manufacturer warrants the ARMORKOTE® against cracking, blistering, peeling or detaching from the outermost surface material to which ARMORKOTE® was originally applied by Applicator for as long as the original Buyer owns the pool within the warranty period. Coverage under this Warranty shall extend only after Applicator and Manufacturer have received payment in full for the services and materials provided to Buyer.

2. LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS Manufacturer does not warrant against: · Damage to or failure resulting from any attachments to the pool such as fittings, skimmers, piping, lighting fixtures, wiring, rails, ladders, slides, jump boards or any other accessories. · Damage to or failure resulting from any attendant structures to the pool such as decks, waterfalls, fountains, or spas. · Damage to or failure resulting from concrete decking or other structure attached to the pool shell. · Failure resulting from improper or unauthorized draining of the pool or the rising of the ground water table above the pool water level or pool pop up. · Failure resulting from improper installation. · Any consequential damages, such as, but not limited to, pool water loss, chemical replacement, or other losses, which may arise due to structural failure. · Repairs made by any other party other than an authorized representative of the Manufacturer. · Labor costs of any kind. · Fading, staining, discoloration or in any manner changing the appearance of the top coat surface. · Discoloration or deterioration caused by abnormal use of the pool, improper water chemistry, mineral-laden water, ancillary equipment servicing the pool, or negligence. · Any damages caused or contributed to by accident, negligence, abuse, misuse, act of God, or act of nature (including, but not limited to, flooding, fire, settling of soil, or shifting of earth) or other conditions beyond our control. · Any damages caused by Buyer’s failure to provide reasonable and necessary maintenance to the pool. The Applicator and Manufacturer assume no liability for any bodily injuries resulting from the installation of the coating product. Under no circumstances shall the Applicator or Manufacturer be liable to the Buyer or any other person or entity for any special or consequential damages, whether arising out of breach of warranty, breach of contract or otherwise. Some states may not permit some exclusions or limitations of incidental or consequential damage, therefore, these limitations may not apply.

3. NOTIFICATION In the event of discovery of a potential Warranty claim condition, Buyer must notify Manufacturer within fifteen (15) days of discovery in writing. Such notification must be sent via registered U.S.P.S. mail to the address listed on this Warranty.

4. PERFORMANCE Subject to the conditions herein contained and within the warranty period and in the event of failure caused by faulty materials, Manufacturer (or its authorized agent) shall provide replacement pool coating material sufficient to remedy the failed area. Such replacement of the product originally installed shall be the sole remedy within the Warranty period and replacement product will ship FOB the manufacturer’s plant.

5. VOIDING OF THIS WARRANTY The pool is designed to remain full of water at all times and the coating is designed to remain submersed. This Warranty shall be considered null and void in the event of drainage of the pool below the skimmer outlet. Do not drain the pool or allow any unauthorized person to drain the pool.

6. TRANSFERABILITY This Warranty extends only to the original Buyer of the pool within the warranty period and is non-transferable or assignable.


8. WARRANTY REGISTRATION The attached Warranty Registration Card must be completely filled out by the Buyer and Applicator and returned to the Manufacturer within fifteen (15) days of the application of the final ARMORGUARD 3300® surface finish coating. Failure to return the Warranty Registration Card will render this Warranty null and void.

9. DISPUTES All parties to this Warranty agree that any and all disputes that may occur regarding the performance of this Warranty shall be settled by binding arbitration conducted pursuant to a recognized arbitration association selected by Manufacturer. All parties agree that the arbitration proceedings to resolve any and all such disputes shall be conducted in the city where the Manufacturer is located.

RECOMMENDATIONS: You may notice that your ARMORKOTE® surface coat will require less maintenance and a reduced amount of pool chemicals. Please maintain the following pool chemistry: CHLORINE 1.5 – 2.0 ppm, ACIDITY 7.4 – 7.8 pH, ALKALINITY 90 – 120 ppm, CALCIUM 250 – 350 ppm, STABALIZER 60 – 90 ppm. When initially filling the pool and before the filtration system is started up, a sequestering agent should be used to suspend any mineral particles. PRECAUTION: Please DO NOT allow tri-chlor powder, tablets or stabilizers to settle directly on the surface as this may result in staining or discoloration of the ARMORKOTE® surface.
