Application Information
Instructions for use

Design Criteria

Vetotop EC198 is designed to be a hard wearing single or dual coat application on cementitious or metal substrates. When used on metal substrates, it is recommended that the application takes place within 2 to 3 hours from substrate preparation to prevent early rust formation. The applied product will be resistant to water as well as a wide range of chemicals.


The Generally no primer is required for the use of Vetotop EC198 on cementitious substrates, however where highly absorbent cementitious surfaces exist, Vetoprime AP443 can be used.

For metal substrate, it is mandatory to use primer recommended Vetoprime EP390 before application."


The mixed Vetotop EC198 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.


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.


Vetotop EC198  should be removed from tools and equipment with water immediately after use. Hardened material can only be removed mechanically.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, 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).

Steel substrates should be grit blasted to surface quality SA2½ (BS 4232:Second Quality) then apply Vetoprime EP390, wait till it dries, then continue the application of Vetotop EC198
