XIM® Tile Doc® is a two part epoxy that bonds strongly to porcelain and will hold up to cold and hot water. It is a high gloss white that resembles the look of ceramic tile. Tile Doc is recommended for porcelain sinks, tile, tubs and showers in kitchens and bathrooms.

Combine Part A with Part B at a mixing ratio of 1 Part A to 1 Part B (1:1). The mixing ratio is critical. No thinning is needed if applied by brush. The pot life or working time of the mixture is 14-18 hours depending on the temperature and humidity. Mix only what will be used that day. Keep the containers tightly closed when not in use. Store at room temperature.
Use in a well ventilated area when air and surface temperatures are between 50-100°F (10-38°C) and the relative humidity is below 85%. Vapors may travel to areas away from the work site and ignite. Use only with proper ventilation, where moving air will carry vapors outside.
If brushing, use a fine bristle brush and lightly brush-out in one direction to achieve a smooth finish. Two coats are recommended for maximum performance.
If the second coat remains tacky, improve the ventilation to promote drying. If available, a dehumidifier may be used to help remove moisture from the room. The Tile doc finish will generally harden in 24-36 hours. If the second coat is applied within 4-6 hours, no sanding of the first coat is needed. If the first coat has hardened or repairs or touch- up is needed, lightly scuff sand the first coat with 400 grit sandpaper to dull the surface. Remove all sanding dust before proceeding. After applying the second coat, water should be kept away for the Tile Doc finish for a period of 3 to 4 days.
Note: Tile Doc should only be applied over a hard, relatively inflexible surface. Do not apply over flexible seams or caulk. Seams can be re-caulked in 1-2 days.
Tile Doc finish cures to a very hard and durable coating. With proper care the Tile Doc finish may last many times longer than regular enamels. Always clean the Tile Doc finish with a non-abrasive type cleaner or a mild cleaner such as Formula 409 or Fantastic. Do not use chlorine based cleaners or bleach which can cause discoloration. If the surface becomes dull, the Tile Doc can be buffed back to a gloss using a polishing compound. To repair a chipped or scratched area, fill the chip or scratch with an epoxy filler, clean the area with a solvent wipe, scuff sand with 220 to 400 grit sandpaper, re-wipe with solvent and touch up the area with Tile Doc finish.
