Description

A water-borne two-component water-vapor-permeable epoxy paint.


Product Features

Solid EP-M is suitable for old and new concrete floors subjected to moderate stress e.g. in common spaces in apartment buildings and washingrooms. The product is also suitable for concrete floors previously treated with epoxy paint or coating. Only for professional use.


Recommended Uses

Concrete floors on common spaces in apartment buildings such as sport equipment storages and washingrooms.


Coverage

Priming 5–7 m²/l Finishing 7–10 m²/l The practical coverage is dependent on the roughness and absorbency of the surface.


Application Conditions

The relative humidity of the concrete should not exceed 97%. During painting and drying, the temperature of the air, surface and paint must be over +15°C and the relative humidity of the air below 80%. Note! Epoxy products have a tendency to yellowing in sunlight.


Surface preparation

New cement floor: Remove the laitance layer from the concrete surface by, for example, surface sanding or hydrochloric acid pickling. Remove laitance dust carefully after sanding. Hydrochloric acid pickling is performed with a diluted solution (1 part concentrated hydrochloric acid, 4 parts water). Rinse the floor with plenty of water. The substrate has to be dry, firm and solid before surface treatment. Old cement floor: Clean the floor and remove any grease, oil, chemicals and other impurities with Tikkurila Maalipesu cleaning agent, by sanding or blast-cleaning. Remove old peeling paint film by sanding. Open cracks, holes and hollows until sound concrete with e.g. an edge grinder. Remove loose material and dust. Fill hollows, opened cracks and holes with, for example, a cement-based filler or an epoxy filler. Sand the filled areas to the same level as the surrounding surface before painting.


Painting

First coat:

Prime with Solid EP-M thinned 30–40% with water. The thinner is added to the ready compound and mixed carefully. Finishing can be done 16 hours after priming, at the earliest. The finishing paint can be thinned max. 10–35% with water. ROUGHENING: Reduce the slipperiness of the painted surface by adding Liukueste non-slip agent to Solid EP-M. Begin by applying the first coat normally according to instructions. When Solid EP-M is dry enough to withstand walking (within 24 hours), apply a non-slip coating as follows. Thin Solid EP-M with 20 vol.-% water. Stir thoroughly with a paint mixer attached to a power drill. Add 1 can (0.3 l) of Liukueste non-slip agent to 10 liters Solid EP-M. Mix the components thoroughly using a paint mixer attached to a power drill. With a short-pile roller, apply the “non-slip paint” to the entire floor area or parts of it marked off with masking tape. If the non-slip treatment appears insufficient, improve it by applying a new coat after 2 hours of drying time. Note that during application, thick coats of paint will not harden properly, but will instead remain in a jelly-like form.


Cleaning of tools

Clean tools with water and synthetic washing agent. Tikkurila Pensselipesu Tool Cleaner is recommended to remove slightly hardened paint.


Maintenance Instructions

The painted surface will reach its final wear and chemical resistance approx. 1 week after the surface treatment. Avoid cleaning during this time. Clean the surface with a brush, mop or dust cloth. Dirty surfaces can be cleaned with a cleaning tool and a neutral (pH 6–8) washing solution.


VOC

(cat A/j) 140g/l(2010). Solid EP-M contains VOC max. 140 g/l.


Multi-purpose

Solid EP-M is recommended for moderate mechanical and chemical stress in industrial, workshop, storage facilities, as well as hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry for coating of floors. Solid EP-M is suitable for moist concrete as well.

M1-approved

The product has M1 building material emission classification for indoor use, and emits extremely low levels of compounds into the environment.

Easy to use

Priming and painting cab be done with the same product. Easy to apply by roller. Water is used for thinning and for cleaning of tools.
