Technical Information
Product Description

EPOCHIM K 100 is a two component 100% solid, epoxy coating suitable for concrete and steel protection in aggressive chemical conditions like industrial pavements, reinforced concrete, metallic structures, process plants and sewage works. Once it is cured, the product transforms into a continuous anti dust membrane that is resistant against chemicals, and abrasion.

Advantages
  • Ecofriendly, low VOC
  • Excellent adhesion to concrete steel, wood, stoneware, etc.
  • High chemical and abrasion resistance
  • Easy applied by brush, roller or spray
  • Acts as a protective and waterproof coating
Packaging, Coverage / Consumption

EPOCHIM K 100 is supplied in 4Liter and 15 Liter kits (Base & Hardener).

Consumption: 4-5 m² / liter per coat at 200 micron (wft) according to the porosity of the substrate.

Shelf Life & Storage

Keep in tightly closed containers and in sheltered and dry place. Shelf life is 12 months if stored as recommended.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Priming

In general cases properly prepared concrete does not require any priming. Highly porous surfaces, should be primed with PRIMER POXY FF before applying EPOCHIM K 100.

After grit blasting the metal surfaces, use PRIMER POXY to eliminate the formation of rust.

Mixing

EPOCHIM K 100 is composed of two components that are mixed at the moment of use. Pour component B (hardener) into component A (resin) and mix carefully with a drill at low number of turns (200-300 turns per minute), till obtaining a homogeneous consistency.

Application

Apply EPOCHIM K 100 mixture with a brush or roller in two crossed coats at a rate of 4-5 m² / liter per coat. The first coat is applied to achieve a uniform coating with minimum wet coat thickness of 200 microns. The second coat can be applied after making sure that the first one is completely dry and within maximum time of 24 hours from first coat application. The two coats must achieve minimum thickness of 400 microns

If slip resistance finish is required, broadcast the Quartzo silica sand with the required sieve size onto the first coat while it is still wet. Once cured, remove excess sand and apply the final coat.

Cleaning

All tools used in the preparation and application of EPOCHIM K 100 must be cleaned with SOLVENTE 10 before hardening. Hardened material should be removed mechanically.

Recommendations

  • Partial mixing of the product components should not be allowed under any conditions
  • Extra care should be taken when applying at high temperature as pot life of the mixed product will shorten automatically
  • It is recommended to shade the working area while mixing and placing EPOCHIM K 100
  • EPOCHIM K 100 should not be applied onto surfaces with relative humidity more than 80%, and temperature below +5ºC
Surface Preparation

The surface must be clean, sound, uncontaminated, free from grease, friable varnishes, etc. The substrate must be rough in order to achieve maximum adhesion with the coatings.

Preparations using mechanical methods like grinding or blasting in order to provide a suitable clean surface is strongly recommended. All necessary repairs should be made prior to application by using one of COLMEF’s range of epoxy mortars. Contact Colmef Technical Department for advice.

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.

On existing epoxy coating, the application of EPOCHIM K 100 can lead to wrinkling and peeling. It is recommended that tests are made to assure the adhesion of old coat to the substrates, otherwise this coating should be removed prior to application of EPOCHIM K 100.

Steel surfaces should be grit blasted to surface quality SA 21/2. Coat the surface before it starts to re-oxidize.

Additional Information
Health & Safety

During application, wear appropriate protective clothing, goggles, gloves and respiratory equipment. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and inhalation of vapor. Ensure proper ventilation at working place.

In case of contact with skin, rinse with water and again wash thoroughly with soap and water.

In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical advice accordingly.

If ingested, obtain medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
