9300 - Novolac Self Leveling Coating

Rhino™ 9300 Novolac is a high quality Bis-F epoxy novolac coating system which has superior chemical and abrasion resistance versus Bis-A type epoxy resins. This tightly crosslinked, self-leveling epoxy system cures in the presence of moisture and humidity with excellent mechanical properties.

Rhino 9300 mixes using the industry standard, 2:1 by volume ratio. Having low odor, Rhino 9300 contains no solvents and is 100% solids that assures ease of application. For vertical applications, use Rhino 9700.



Features & Benefits

Superior chemical and abrasion resistance
• Medium viscosity
• Excellent bonding

Highly resistant to cratering or blush
• Dries to a high gloss

• Low odor

• 100% solids, no solvents
Cures in the presence of moisture and humidity with excellent mechanical properties


Recommended for floor coating and bermed secondary containment areas where high concentrations of chemicals are used
Application where increased resistance to acids, bases and solvents is desired

Non-slip surfaces can be achieved with broadcast of quartz, aluminum oxide or other non-skid material

A thorough and complete mixing is critical. First mix each component separately. Proportion each component at the ratio of 2 parts A (resin) to 1 part B (hardener) by volume or if using 1-gallon kits, pour all of Part B (hardener) into Part A (resin). Mix for 3 – 5 minutes, scraping the mixing container sides and bottom regularly. Mix no more material than may be applied in 20 minutes.
