Description

A two component self-leveling solvent-free epoxy coating. The product can be used as paint, coating or screed depending on the amount of sand added.


Product Features

For concrete floors where properties, such as durability and impermeability of moisture and gaseous compounds, are required. Only for professional use.


Recommended Uses

For old and new concrete floors and especially balcony concrete floors.


Coverage

Coverage depends on the porosity and evenness of the substrate and on the application method. Coverage on concrete floors is on average: Film thickness 0.3 mm - coverage approx. 3 m²/litre Film thickness 0.5 mm - coverage approx. 2 m²/litre Film thickness 2.0 mm - screed 2 liters mixed screed/m².


Application Conditions

The concrete surface must be dry and at least 4 weeks old. The relative humidity of the concrete should not exceed 97 %. The temperature of the ambient air, surface and coating should not fall below + 10 °C during either application or drying. The relative humidity of the air should not exceed 80 %.


Surface preparation

New cement floors: Remove the laitance layer by surface grinding, centrifugal blasting or hydrochloric acid pickling. Choose the method best suited for the premises in question. After sanding carefully remove the concrete dust with a vacuum cleaner. Hydrochloric acid pickling is carried out with diluted hydrochloric acid (1 part concentrated hydrochloric acid, 4 parts water). Rinse the floor with plenty of water. Dry the floor. Old cement floor: Remove all dust and loose material from the floor. Remove all grease, oil, chemicals and other impurities by emulsion cleaning, grinding, milling, flame cleaning or centrifugal blasting. Choose the method best suited for the premises in question. Remove old peeling paint films. Clean out holes and cracks on the floor until you reach healthy, clean concrete. Open cracks with, for example, an edge grinder. Remove loose material and dust.


Painting

First coat:

Prime old treated concrete floors with Novopox LP epoxy coating thinned approx. 10-15 % with Epoxy thinner 1074. Finish with Novopox LP epoxy coating thinned approx. 10% with Epoxy thinner 1074. RUBBING: Improve grip on painted surfaces by adding Liukueste non-slip agent to Novopox LP epoxy coating. Begin by applying the first coat normally according to instructions. When the Novopox LP epoxy coating is dry enough to withstand walking (within 24 hours), apply a non-slip coating as follows. Dilute Novopox LP epoxy coating with 30-40 vol% Epoxy thinner 1074. Mix thoroughly with a electric drill equipped with a paint blender. Add 1 can (0.3 l) of Liukueste non-slip agent per 10 liters Novopox LP epoxy coating into the mixture. Mix thoroughly with a power drill equipped with a paint blender. With a short-pile roller, apply the non-slip coating to the entire floor area or parts of it marked off with tape. If the non-slip treatment appears insufficient, improve it by repeating the treatment with a new coat after 2 hours drying time. The pot-life of diluted Novopox LP epoxy coating is considerably longer than that shown in the instructions, but the drying time is the same for both diluted and undiluted Novopox LP epoxy coating. Note that during application, thick coats of paint will not dry properly, but will instead remain in a jelly-like form.


Cleaning of tools

Epoxy thinner 1074


Maintenance Instructions

The painted surface reaches ultimate durability and hardness in approximately 2 weeks after surface treatment under normal conditions. Avoid cleaning during this time. Clean the surface with a brush, mop or dust cloth. Clean soiled surfaces with a cleaning tool and neutral (pH 6-8) detergent.
