Epoxy Primer Technical Data Sheet
Antel Epoxy Primer is a low viscosity, two part solvent free epoxy resin, formulated to provide a material possessing outstanding adhesive qualities. It should be particularly used where Antel Epoxy self levelling flooring screed is being applied.
a. Priming surfaces prior to the application of Antel Epoxy Floor Screed, Antel Epoxy self levelling floor screed and Antel Patching Mortar.
b. Sealing and filling hairline cracks in concrete floors and structures.
c. Bonding together broken concrete structures.
d. Bonding asbestos cement to itself to wood or to concrete.
1 kg, 2.5 kg and 5 kg tins.
4. USAGE RATE
1 kg covers 5.5m² for 1 coat.
5. SHELF LIFE
12 months in sealed container.
7. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Surfaces must be dry and free from all foreign matter such as dust, grease and dirt etc. Weak laitance and loose or flaking material must be removed by ‘grit’ blasting or at the very least wire brushing. Best results can be obtained by the use of the appropriate Antel Cleaner.
Empty the entire contents of Pack ‘B’ into Pack ‘A’ and mix thoroughly. Mixing should be carried out by a slow speed mechanical stirrer, or by hand using a flat bar paint mixer. Stirring should continue until a complete mix is achieved. Once mixed, transfer to a shallow tray immedietely. This will help to dissipate heat and give a longer working time.
As a primer for Antel Epoxy Screed and Patching Mortar use as follows:-
Apply by roller immediately after mixing, working well into the surface and taking care not to form pools. Do not prime an area larger than can be dealt with in two hours. Should the primer be allowed to harden, a fresh application must be carried out before the appropriate mortar is applied. It may be necessary, when priming extremely porous surfaces, to apply a second coat after the first coat has become touch dry.
As a primer for Antel Epoxy self levelling floor screed
Apply by roller immediately after mixing, working well into the surface and taking care not to form pools. It may be necessary, when priming extremely porous surfaces, to apply a second coat after the first coat has become touch dry. Antel Epoxy self levelling floor screed should be applied when the primer is touch dry.
As a general adhesive use as follows:-
Apply by brush or roller immediately after mixing. Materials to be bonded should be held firmly until the adhesive has hardened - approximately between 12 - 24 hours, dependent upon the temperature.
Pot life when mixed is 20-30 minutes depending on air temperature. Tough hard in 12 - 24 hours. Full cure is achieved in about 7 days - dependent upon the temperature.
7.5 Cleaning Tools:
Immediately after use, tools should be cleaned with Antel cleaning Solvent.
