As an easy heavy duty coating has a wide range of application uses ranging from light industrial areas to floors requiring long lasting protection from abrasion and heavy loads such as Warehouses, Garages , Dairies , Factories ,Laboratories, Aircraft hangars, Plant rooms, Food manufacturing plants and car parks. When used in conjunction with the appropriate slip resistant, the product is suitable for use in wet areas where strict levels of hygiene and cleanliness are required or where chemicals are manufactured, spilled or is an integral part of the process.
New Concrete: Remove laitance by power grinding, vacuum grit blasting or hydrochloric acid etching. Choose the method best suited for the premises. After grinding remove dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner. Hydrochloric acid etching is carried out with diluted hydrochloric acid (1 part concentrated hydrochloric acid, 4 parts water). Rinse with plenty of water. Dry the floor.
Maintenance (old Concrete): Remove all grease, oil, chemicals and other impurities by detergent washing. Remove old peeling paint layer by grinding, milling or vacuum grit blasting. Choose the method best suited for the premises. Clean out pot-holes removing all loose friable material. Open cracks with e.g. an abrasive tool. Remove loose material and dust.
Epoxy layers should be protected from moisture for 4-6 hours after application. Moisture may whiten the surface or/and make it sticky. It may also disturb hardening. Faded or sticky layers in parts of the surface should be removed by grinding or milling and laid again.
Use only where application and drying can proceed at temperatures above: 10°C/50°F. The temperature of paint itself should be 15°C/59°F or above. Apply only on a dry and clean surface with a Temperature above the dew point to avoid condensation. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
