Guide for Application
  
Surface Preparation 
 
All surfaces should be clean, dry, free from rust, oil & grease and any loosely adhering particles.
Grit blasting is recommended.
The age of the concrete should be 28 days at least, with a moisture content less than 5 %.
Steel surface should be blast cleaned in accordance with DIN 55928 Part 4 and swedish standard Sa2 1|2
 
Priming 
The prepared concrte surface should be primed using POLYPRIME EP (See separate data sheet).
Pour component B (Curing Agents) contents into the container of component A (Resin) and mix till uniform colour and consistency is achieved. Apply the mixed materials with suitable brush.
The primer should not be allowed to dry before over coating.
Prepared steel surfaces shall be primed using POLYCOAT EP ZR (See separate data sheet).
 
Mixing
 
Stir well both component A(Resin) and Component B (Curing Agent) before use, add Component B to Component A while mixing.
Mix until homogenous colour and consistency is achieved.
Slow speed electric drill (400-500 rpm) fitted with a mixing paddle is recommended.
Partial mixing is not recommended
 
Application
 
Apply POLYFLOOR EP HC onto the prepared substrate using suitable brush, roller, ensuring uniform coverage is achieved. Allow the first coat to dry ( this will tack about 12 hours @20°C ) before applying the second coat.
In case of using glass fibers, the fabric should be laid directly onto the first coat while it is still wet, pressed and smoothed out with a stiff brush or split washer roller.
Second coat will be applied as the first coat (time between recoating is 12 hours @25 °C).
Glass fiber of 110 g 1m2 open weaves glass cloth is recommended.
 
Cleaning
 
Clean all tools and equipment immediately after use with POLYSOLVENT EP20
 
 
 
Packaging 
POLYFLOOR EP HC is supplied in 5kg pack size.
 
 
 
Coverage
 
Depend upon the substrate conditions, about 3m2 I kg for a ( D.F.T.) of 250 microns.
 
Storage
 
POLYFLOOR EP HC should be kept in dry place away from extreme temperatures.
Shelf Life One year when stored correctly in unopened containers.
 
Health and Safety
 
Epoxy Resins contain irritants, especially to the skin, eyes and the respiratory system.
Persons handling these materials shall use appropriate protective clothing, including rubber or plastic gloves.
If the epoxy resin came in contact with the skin, it should be removed immediately and the areas of contact washed thoroughly with soap and water.

Quick Overview:

  • Short Description:

    Highly Chemical Resistant, Epoxy Resin Coating for Tanks Be Surface Lining Product Description POLYFLOOR EP HC is a two component, solvent free, high build, thyrotrophic epoxy resin coating, which is formulated for horizon natal and vertical surfaces. The cured film is highly chemical resistive to most chemical agents. It can be used on conjunction with glass fibers to improve impact resistance, tensile strength and to bridge hair cracks.
