Application Information
Instructions for use

Laitance and weak surface layer shall be removed using mechanical methods such as grinding or blasting necessary repairs should be made prior to application by using epoxy mortar from Epofinish.
New concrete floors shall be at least 28 days old with moisture content or less than 5% (shall earlier application be required testing of substrate for moisture conditions shall be made).

Steel substrates should be grit blasted to surface quality SA21/2 (BS 432: Second Quality) and application shall take place within 2 to 4 hours after blasting.

Priming

The generally no primer is required for the use of
Epochim K50, however, use Primer Poxy FF where highly absorbent cementitious surfaces.

Mixing

The individual components of Epochim K50 should be thouroughly stirred before the three are mixed together. The entire contents of the hardener container should be poured into the base container and the materials mixed thoroughly for at least 3 minutes. The use of a heavy-duty slow speed, flameproof or air driven drill fitted with a mixing paddle is desirable.

Application

The mixed Epochim K50 should be applied to the  prepared surface using a brush or lambs-wool roller. Ensure that the area is completely coated and that ‘ponding’ of the material does not occur. 

Curing

The applied coating can receive foot traffic in 24 hours, however it shall be allowed to cure for 7 days to achieve full cure to receive vehicular traffic and its chemical resistance properties.

Surface Preparation

The surface must be sound, clean free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc.

 

 

Additional Information
Health & Safety

Epochim K50 should not come into contact with skin and eyes or be swallowed. Ensure adequate ventilation and avoid inhalation of vapors. Some people are sensitive to resins, hardeners and solvents. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye protection. If working on confined areas, suitable respiratory protective equipment must be used. The use of barrier creams provide additional skin protection. In case of contact with skin, rinse with plenty of clean water, then cleanse with soap and water. Do not use solvent. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately - Do not induce vomiting. 
Epochim K50 is non-flammable. No smoking. In the event of fire extinguish with CO2, or foam.

RANDOM PRODUCT
Monneli Primer A 16

Synthetic Resin Primer

Uses
PRIMER A16 is used for the preventive treatment prior to laying of ceramic tiles with the cement adhesive on gypsum boards. Such application on the supports avoids the chemical reaction between the gypsum sulphates and the cement aluminates contained in the adhesives for ceramic tiles, which in case of humidity presence could provoke breakaway of tiles.
It can be also used at gypsum or very porous supports before painting with acrylic or vinyl paints, to avoid too fast drying.
PRIMER A16 is used on light weight plaster and other porous surfaces such as asbestos boards, on wood, hardboard, chipboard, and so on, before fixing ceramic wall and floor tiles in the usual way.
