5. USAGE RATE
Every litre of Water Based Epoxy Floor Paint will cover approximately 6-7 squared metres (based on a non porous, smooth surface), however this will vary depending on how thickly you apply the material and also how porous the surface is.
If you are unsure on the porosity of the surface, we recommend you buy a little more than you think you will need to ensure you don’t run out part way through the application.
6. SHELF LIFE
12 months in sealed container.
7. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
7.1 Preparation: Although Water Based Epoxy Floor Paint will over coat most other finishes and paints, the best results are achieved when surfaces are clean and free of other finishes/coatings. All surfaces should be damp dry or at least not subject to running water.
7.2 Mixing: The performance of the coating can be seriously impaired if the following instructions are not strictly adhered to.
The pot life is approximately 1.5 hours. This is based on a temperature of 20 degrees C/68 degrees Fahrenheit. If you are applying the coating in higher temperatures, the pot life may be reduced. The material will become unworkable once outside of this pot life.
Once mixed, it is only possible to apply a single coat. Do not attempt to return to the mix to apply a second coat.
For simplicity we would recommend getting a separate pack of Water based Epoxy Floor Paint for each coat. However, if you would like to buy just the one pack for both coats, you will need to accurately divide the resin and hardener packs equally and mix in a separate container for each of the coats. We suggest you divide the packs by volume in a measuring jug to ensure accuracy.
7.3 Application: WARNING – DO NOT APPLY IN TEMPERATURES BELOW 10 DEGREES C/50 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AND ENSURE THERE IS AT LEAST A 4 HOUR WEATHER WINDOW.
PRODUCT CAN BE APPLIED IN MILDLY DAMP CONDITIONS BUT WILL NOT TOLERATE STANDING WATER.
1. Clean the surface you will be applying the Water Based Epoxy Floor Paint to. If there are any leaks, these should be repaired with Antel Waterstop, Antel Epoxy Putty or Antel SBR Bonding Agent before applying the Water Based Epoxy Floor Paint. If unsure, please contact us for technical advice.
2. Pour the contents of the smaller container into the larger container and mix thoroughly (ideally with a mixer paddle) for a minimum of three minutes, so that the two components are completely mixed.
3. Apply the first coat by brush, roller or spray. If the temperature is above 20 degrees C/68 degrees Fahrenheit, wait 6 hours before applying the second coat. If the temperature is below this, wait a full 24 hours before applying the next coat.
4. Apply the second coat.
