Technical Information
Product Description

PRIMER POXY (IF) is a solvent free primer based on formulated epoxy resin and curing agents specially selected for their ability to be applied and cured in warm temperatures, on dry or damp concrete.


Once the PRIMER POXY (IF) hardens, the concrete surface becomes much harder allowing application on weaker concrete possible.

Packaging, Coverage / Consumption


PRIMER POXY (IF) is supplied as a pre-measured kit depending on the customer’s requirements. Our standard packaging is 4 Liter and 15 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

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 be have been used. At the end of grinding, the surface should be flat.

Surface irregularities and blow holes shall be repaired with EPOFINISH IF. 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.

Application Thickness

A thickness of 50-100µm per coat is recommended. In case the concrete is very porous, you can apply a second coat of PRIMER POXY (IF).

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


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 mixture 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.

In case the surface is very absorbent, apply a second coat of primer within the allowed recoating time.


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.
