Versatile Solvent based epoxy primer
Vetoprime EP490 is a universal primer for the Vetorep and Vetotop Coatings products, its applied on prepared concrete and cementitious substrates to seal the substrate and enhance bonding with top coats. The product can be used as a stand alone product in internal applications as a seal coat to harden cementitious surfaces and prevent dusting. Vetoprime EP490 is a two component solvent based epoxy resin that has penetrating properties making it ideal for concrete substrates.
Vetoprime EP490 supplied in 4 & 15 Liter kits
Coverage - 7 - 10 m2 /Liter
Original sealed container of Vetoprime EP490 has a shelf life of 12 months provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry shaded place below 35ºC.
- Priming of joint edges to receive urethane, epoxy, and polyurea based sealants.
- Priming of concrete slabs and walls to receive solvent free epoxy, urethane, MMA, polyurea and hybrid coatings.
- Priming of concrete substrates to receive epoxy and urethane based repair mortars.
- Priming of cementitious screeds to receive epoxy, urethane and resinous coatings.
Should be at least 28 days old and relative humidity of the concrete is 75% or below. Laitence deposits on new concrete are best removed by light grit blasting, mechanical scabbling or grinding. Where heavy contamination by oil and grease has occurred or existing coatings are present, it is essential that all contaminations are removed.
Mix Vetoprime EP490 as supplied. Add the entire content of hardener can to the base can and mix thoroughly for about 2 minutes. Once mixed, the Vetoprime EP490 shall be immediately applied in a thin continuous film using stiff brushes or rollers. Avoid over-application and puddles. Vetoprime EP490 shall be allowed to become tackfree prior to the application of epoxy coating (unless otherwise specified) but well within the open time specified for the given temperature. The hotter the substrate, the more quickly the primer will become dry.
All tools and equipment shall be cleaned immediately after use with Vetonit Solvent XX400.
It is essential that Vetoprime EP490 is applied to a sound, clean and dry surface in order to achieve maximum bond strength between substrate and coating/repair products.
Some people are sensitive to epoxy resins; so gloves and a barrier cream shall be used when handling these products. If contact with the resin occurs, it must be removed, before if hardens, with resin removing cream follow by washing with soap and water. Do not use solvent. During use, avoid inhalation of solvent and contact with skin and eyes. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, eye protection and respiratory protective equipment. In case of contact with eye, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting.
