Application Information
Instructions for use

 

Priming

 

Priming is not normally required provided the substrate is sound, prepared and good quality non porous concrete. However, if concrete surface is porous, or w/c ratio is >0.5 it is recommended to use Vetoprime EP390.

 Vetoprime EP390 should be mixed in the proportions supplied. Add the entire contents of the hardener can to the base can. When thoroughly mixed, preferably using a slow speed mixer, the primer should be applied in a thin, continuous film using rollers or stiff brushes. Work the primer well into the surface of the concrete taking care to avoid ponding or over application. The primer should be left to achieve a tack-free condition before applying the top coat.

 

Mixing Vetotop EC398

 

In a separate mixing vessel, use a slow speed mixer to mix the base, hardener for 3 minutes. Mix these components in the quantities supplied taking care to ensure all containers are scraped clean. Do not add solvent thinners at any time.

 

Application

 

The first coat of Vetotop EC398 should be laid using a short haired lamb wool roller, or gauged squeegee to achieve a continuous coating. Ensure that loose hairs on the roller are removed before use. A minimum film thickness of 250 microns per coat should be applied for flooring system (this can be increased where specifications demand). The top coat can be applied in the same manner within 8 to 24 hours of the application of the top coat.

 

Antislip Aggregates

 

If the option of using antislip aggregates has been chosen, the base coat should be dressed with the chosen antislip aggregates as soon as possible after laying of the base coat. The recommended procedure is to completely blind the base coat i.e. apply excess dressing aggregate to completely obliterate the base coating.

 Alternatively, the antislip silica particles can be broadcast in a light random dressing to provide a less dense finish, or the product can be used to obtain a smooth finish by omitting the antislip aggregates.

 When the base coat has reached initial cure (after 12 hours at 20°C or 6 hours at 40°C), the excess aggregate should be vacuum cleaned from the surface.

 The top coat can now be applied by a short haired roller or airless spray equipment. Care should be taken to ensure that a continuous film is achieved and the rough surface caused by the aggregate is completely sealed. This topcoat must be applied within 36 hours at 20°C (24 hours at 40°C) of the application of the resin base coat.

 

Expansion Joints

 

Expansion  joints  in  the  existing   substrate   must be retained and continued through the Vetotop EC398 topping. Saveto have a range of joint sealants specifically designed for flooring (see Vetoflex PS781, Vetoflex PS782 and Vetoflex PS786 product data sheets).

 

Cleaning

 

Tools and equipment should be cleaned with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use.


Surface Preparation

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

 Laitence and weak surface layer shall be removed using mechanical methods such as grinding or blasting in order to provide a sound well profiled surface. All necessary repairs should be made prior to application by using epoxy mortar from Vetorep ER range.

 New concrete floors shall be at least 28 days  old with moisture content of less than 5% (shall earlier application be required testing of substrate for moisture conditions shall be made).
