Technical Information
Product Description

EPOFLOOR FC is a solvent free coating based on formulated epoxy resin and curing agents specially selected for their ability to be applied and cured in cold temperatures

Packaging, Coverage / Consumption
  • EPOFLOOR FC contains resin (Component A) and hardener (Component B):
  • EPOFLOOR FC resin (Component A) is a low viscosity standard coloured base which contains fillers and pigments.
  • EPOFLOOR FC hardener (Component B) is a low viscosity and low color hardener which, after mixing with the base, is less-yellowing and can be applied at 75% humidity. The hardener provides excellent chemical and abrasion resistance.

EPOFLOOR FC is supplied as a pre-measured kit depending on the customer’s requirements. Our standard packing is 4 liter kit.

Shelf Life & Storage

Keep in tightly closed containers and in sheltered and dry place with a temperature between +5°C and +35°C. In these conditions it maintains its characteristics unchanged for 12 months.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Application Thickness

  • A thickness of 200-500µm per coat over a primer is recommended
  • For anti-slip finish, broadcast Silica Sand with the required size onto the first coat while wet. Once cured, remove excess sand and apply the final coat

Application

Items Needed

  • Multi-speed drill fitted with a mixing paddle
  • Good quality medium haired non-shedding roller, suitable for epoxy application. Ensure that all loose hairs on the roller have been removed before use
  • 7” flat squeegee
  • Clean bucket, 2” brush and SOLVENTE 10 to clean the equipment

Method

Using a drill and a paddle at low speed, stir the resin (Component A) for 1 minute. Slowly add the hardener (Component B) and increase mixing speed. Mix for 3-4 minutes, ensuring proper mixing between the resin and the hardener components, until a completely homogeneous streak free mix of uniform color is obtained.

The best method to apply the mixed product is by pouring it over the prepared surface. Then using a flat squeegee, spread the material uniformly over the surface and back roll it maintaining the recommended thickness. Using just the roller is also possible

Cleaning

Clean equipment with SOLVENTE 10. In case of spillage, use fine silica or cement to absorb the spill and dispose of according to local regulations.

Surface Preparation

The concrete must be at least 28 days old. The concrete must be free from loose matter, oil and dirt before starting surface preparation. The best method to prepare the surface is dry grinding using a specialized planetary grinder. Before grinding, the surface must be free from any degreasing or cleaning chemicals which may have been used. At the end of grinding, the surface should be flat. Surface irregularities and blow holes shall be repaired with EPOFINISH FC. When the filler is hardened, grinding and leveling of the patched area is recommended to ensure a good finish. Ensure dust is removed from the surface using an industrial vacuum. For best finish and adhesion, treat the surface with PRIMER POXY FC. In case the surface is very absorbent, apply a second coat of primer within the allowed recoating time. Metal surface must be perfectly cleaned up to white metal by sand blasting. Application of PRIMER POXY FC should be done immediately before flash rusting occurs
