APPLICATION GUIDELINE FOR THE TINTING OF
SAFE ENCASEMENT PRODUCTS
All SAFE Encasement System coating products can be custom tinted. This fact is
important, as the installation labor costs can be reduced by 25-30% simply by
applying the final protective coat in the color chosen by the customer.
The primer (SE-110 or SE-110-CI Penetrating-Stabilizer) can have minor amounts of tint
added to help inspectors and also give the applicator an even more obvious view of
where the primer has been applied. All SES primers dry to a clear, sheen finish that
remains tacky. Tinting also will improve the already significant "hiding" capability of SES
over deep colors. The topcoats (SE-120, -130, -160, -170, and -310, in their normal
white (non-deep tint base) formulas, can be tinted to light or pastel shades.
For deeper shades, it is necessary to start with the deep tint base versions. These are
available as SE-120-DTB, SE-130-DTB and SE-310-DTB. These materials can be tinted to
essentially any deeper shade of color. This tinting can take place at any facility set up for
tinting of water-based paints.
For smaller amounts (tinting in multiple 5 gallon pail quantities) it makes sense to tint at
a facility as close to the job site and as convenient to the applicator as possible. The
standard procedure is for the customer to choose the color, the individual performing the
color match to make a match with a small quantity of the SES product and create a draw
down, cut this in half and file it with the formula. The customer sees and accepts the
other half of the draw down. For large quantities (275 gallon increments) the most
efficient approach is to choose a color from any available color fan, and have the product
