1. DESCRIPTIONAntel Epoxy Anti-Slip Flooring System consists of epoxy resin, hardener and selected additives and fillers which, when mixed, produce a finely graded, resin rich epoxy non-slip system suitable for very high traffic areas.
Suitable for new and existing concrete floors, render, and metal substrates. It provides a surface which is resistant to moisture, oil, abrasion and chemical attack. 2. FEATURES, BENEFITS
- Superb adhesion to concrete & metal substrates
- Good early strength characteristics
- Dustproof and waterproof
- Good chemical resistance.
- Impermeable to water and other liquids.
- Good resistance to heavy traffic
- Extremely Hard Wearing
4. COLOURBlack Emery Aggregate and black tinted Sealer Coat. 5. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE5.1 Preparation Substrate:
- Car Parking Areas
New concrete should be at least 1 month old. The surface should be power washed and then rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry totally. The substrate must have a minimum compressive strength of 25 N/mm2. Moisture content should not exceed 5% and relative humidity at the slab surface should not exceed 75%. All oil and grease must be removed. Damaged areas should be repaired using Antel's Epoxy repair mortar.
The surface should be free of laitance, etc. Cleaning by mechanical means such as grit blasting or scabbling is very important. Concrete contaminated with oil or grease requires suitable preparation such as steam cleaning using a suitable detergent to remove the contaminant.
Metal substrates. The substrate should be mechanically keyed, removing all signs of rust. All oil and grease must be removed using a good quality degreaser.
5.2 PrimingPriming is necessary when the substrate is poor even after preparation and if substrate is new or porous.
Failure to prepare the surface correctly may result in bad bond formation, therefore it may be necessary to apply a primer.
Add the entire contents of the B Pack to the A Pack, scraping out the contents and mix the resin and hardener components thoroughly with drill paddle. Do not speed mix as this can affect the workability of the material. Once mixed, transfer to a shallow tray immediately. This will help to dissipate heat and give a longer working time.
Once mixed, it is only possible to apply a single coat. Do not attempt to return to the mix to apply a second coat.
1. Bedding CoatThe coating can be applied with a medium pile floor roller.
2. Anti-Slip Emery AggregateShould be broadcast on to the first coat while wet.
3. Sealer CoatWait 24 hours, sweep away excess aggregate and then apply the final coat of Sealer Coat with a medium pile floor roller.
4. Wait a final 24 hours before permitting traffic. 6. PACKAGING AND COVERAGEOne pack of Epoxy Anti-Slip Flooring System consists of 5kg Bedding Coat, 25kg of Emery Aggregate and 2 x 5kg Sealer Coat.Expected coverage is 12m2/pack but is dependent on the substrate. 7. CLEANING
Brushes and roller equipment should be cleaned with Antel’s Standard Epoxy Cleaning Solvent. 8. STORAGEStore in a dry, cool, and frost free place in their original containers. 9. TYPICAL PERFORMANCE PROPERTIES 9.1 Chemical Resistance Here is a cross section of resistance figures for Antel Road Surface Heavy Duty: Reagent (Acid) 5% Citric Acid = R 6 Months (1.9)5% Acetic Acid = R 6 Months (6.9)30% Nitric Acid = R 6 Months (4.5)50% Phosphoric Acid = R 6 Months (19.0)36% Hydrochloric Acid = R 6 Months (6.7)75% Sulphuric Acid = LR 1 Week (Destroyed) Reagent (Organic Solvent) Acetone = R 3 Hours (Destroyed)Diethyl ether = R 6 Months (3.5)Ethyl Acetate = LR 3 Days (11.7)Methylated Spirit = R 6 Months (7.2)Toluene = R 6 months (0.9)Xylene = R 6 months (0.7) R =Resistant to vehicular trafficLR = Limited Resistance (Pedestrian Only)Figures in parenthesis represent average % weight change over time period. 9.2 Abrasion ResistanceLoad bearing properties and toughness are particularly important in flooring for vehicular usage in order for stress forces to be dissipated without chipping or cracking associated with poor abrasive resistance occurring.10 x 10 x 0.4 cm cast sheets of unfilled binder were allowed to cure for 14 days at 25°C and determined for abrasive resistance under ASTM D 4060-90 using model 5130 Taber Abrader with a C5 -17 abrading wheel under 1 kg weight to replicate the pedestrian or vehicular traffic. Castings were subject to 1000 cycles with weight loss reported per 200 cycles. Results show improved performance with a weight loss of 17 mg compared with 23 mg for the industry standard mortar binders. 9.3 Other performance properties.Compressive Strength = 80N/mm2Tensile strength = 13N/mm2Flexural Strength = 27N/mm2*Life Expectancy = 10 years plus. *Subject to good maintenance procedures and substrate integrity. 9.4 Water Spot ResistanceA 200 m film was applied to a panel and cured at 10°C A saturated cotton ball was placed on the film following a 24 hour 48 hour 72 hour and 96 hour cure and left in place for a further 24 hours. After each period the film was examined for carbonation in the form of white spots. Results show excellent resistance to carbamation.
