ACS Protecta Epoxy HB-100 is a two-pack, 100% solids, solvent-free, low odour and low VOC epoxy coating system for internal concrete flooring. It exhibits good moisture, chemical and oil resistance with the ability to build virtually any thickness. It will provide a hard-wearing coating for most situations where a durable floor is required. ACS Protecta Epoxy HB-100 can be easily tinted with ACS compatible tints.
Ensure the floor to be coated is free of all efflorescence, laitance, dirt, grease, oil, paint, curing agents, dust, wax and other contaminants. If the floor is smooth or if curing agents have been applied, mechanically grinding or abrasive blast cleaning is recommended to ensure proper adhesion.
Conduct a water test before applying ACS Protecta Epoxy HB-100 by sprinkling water drops on various parts of the floor and observing how quickly they absorb into the surface.
Apply ACS Protecta Epoxy HB-100 with a lambswool applicator or mohair roller. If required use a spiked roller to remove any air bubbles.
- First Coat
Apply ACS Protecta Epoxy HB-100 at a rate of 3-4m2 per litre. If a textured or anti-slip surface is required apply it at a rate suitable to accept broadcasting of an appropriate anti-slip medium such as CCS Slip Reduction Granules.
- Second Coat
Apply second coat within the recoat window (8-24 hours). After 24 hours, the floor may no longer accept a second coat without the possibility of fish-eyeing and subsequent delamination. If applying a second coat outside the recommended recoat window time, sanding of the surface will be required to ensure proper inter-coat adhesion.
The pot life is the time taken for the mixed Part A and B to start gelling in the mix bucket/vessel.
The pot life for the 10 litre kit is 30-45 minutes depending on the temperature.
Wash all equipment in CCS Solvent immediately following application and mixing.
Allow the surface to cure for at lease 4 hours before the surface is touch dry. Allow 24 hours cure time before subjecting the new floor to pedestrian traffic, 72 hours for vehicular traffic and 5-7 days before subjecting to chemicals or severe abrasion.
