The modified epoxy pond coating and sealer developed by Pond Armor produces an awe-inspiring finished surface that provides a water proof non-toxic barrier for your aquatic environment.

Pond Shield was designed by Pond Armor with the hobbyist in mind. After prepping the surface area, Pond Shield rolls on just like paint with a short nap 1/4" paint roller, or can be applied with a brush, squeegee or even sprayed on. You can use 2-3 oz per kit of denatured alcohol to thin the product for easier use as it is quite thick out of the can. You simply mix both parts with the alcohol and it's ready to apply. Pond Armor's Pond Shield works great for Koi ponds, water gardens, fountains and waterfalls!
We always stock it in Clear, Black ,Tan, Gray, Sky Blueand Competition BLue. Forest Green can be special ordered.
Each Pond Shield kit is 1.5 quarts and can cover up to 60 square feet. That's 60 square feet in just one coat, for a total of 10 mils in thickness. Unlike the color versions of Pond Shield, clear Pond Shield is void of pigments which means EACH kit is applied in several thin coats, eventually being brought up to 10 mils thickness No primers or sealants needed. It can be applied to most surfaces including fiberglass, concrete or cement. It is a flexible epoxy and provides a superior elongation. Simply mix both components together and apply just like paint. Cures to touch within a few hours and is safe for aquatic life.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR BLACK POND SHIELD:
Due to colder temperatures that can occur during shipping and storage at various shipping depots, your black Pond Shield epoxy may have become stiff and unworkable. This does not mean your epoxy has gone bad. It is just cold. To remedy this, tightly replace the lid on your product and place each container in a bucket of hot tap water (boiling the water is not necessary). Your Pond Shield epoxy should return to a workable state within 20-30 minutes.
If you have any questions regarding this, please contact the manufacturer, Pond Armor, at (800) 716-1545 and a representative will be happy to assist you.
