Instructions for use

Priming

Highly porous concrete or concrete containing microsilica must be treated with PRIMER POXY FF, a Solvent-free high performance Epoxy Primer.
In that case the primer should be applied by brush or roller on to the cleaned surface area (particularly hidden surfaces) at a rate of 4-6 m2/L.

The primer should be left to achieve a tack-free condition before applying the top coat. A second coat of primer may be required if the substrate is excessively porous.
In case of Metal substrates, they shall be cleaned by sand blasting up to the white metal, and then treated with one coat of PRIMER POXY FF before the oxidation process occurs.

Mixing

EPOCHIM PWT is supplied in two pre-weighed components. Thoroughly stir the contents of the base can. Pour component B hardener into Component A pail and mix well with a mechanical jiffytype mixer operated at low speed (200-300rpm).  Scrape the side of the pail to ensure the entire product has been properly mixed.

Application

Apply EPOCHIM PWT immediately after mixing by a shorthanded brush, good quality rollers or by airless spray, to the surface ensuring a continuous coating of uniform thickness.

The second can be applied as soon as the first coat has dried (within 12 to 16 hours), depending on the ambient and surface temperatures. If the over coating time has exceeded, the previous coat must be thoroughly abraded to give an adequate mechanical key & solvent wiped.

Cleaning

All tools used in the preparation and application of EPOCHIM PWT must be cleaned with SOLVENTE 10 before hardening.

Surface Preparation

Concrete Substrates

The surface of the concrete shall be sound, clean and uncontaminated.
This preparation shall be such as to leave a sound exposed concrete surface free from dust, loose particles and any deleterious matter. If the concrete surface is defective or has laitance, it must be cut back to a sound base. Excess laitance deposits are best removed by light mechanical scrabbling, grinding or grit/captive blasting followed by vacuum cleaning to remove dust debris.
Any blowholes, chipping or similar surface imperfections shall be repaired using EPOFINISH, a solvent free epoxy resin repair mortar. Expansion joints shall be repaired using EPOMORT HS, a High strength solvent free epoxy mortar.
New Concrete or cementitious surfaces should be at least 28 days old and have moisture content not exceeding 5%. Old or existing floor should be refurbished mechanically to ensure clear sound substrate.

With Metal Substrates


All metal substrates should be blast cleaned to achieve a minimum of Sa2 ½ standard of cleanliness, an angular amplitude of at least 75 microns for pedestrian traffic and 100 microns for vehicular traffic. The slurry must be applied over the blasted steel surface immediately. If the standard of the surface falls below Sa2 ½ then the steel must be reblasted.

Additional Information
Health & Safety

The product must be handled with caution. Use gloves, protective creams and goggles to avoid the contact with eyes and skin.

In case of skin contact clean immediately with a resin removing cream, followed by soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, use clean water to wash the eyes and seek doctor medical attention immediately.

If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately.
