Drybase ECS CR Epoxy Coating
The Drybase ECS CR Epoxy Coating is a two-part water-dispersed epoxy resin that, like ECS Epoxy Floor Coating, has better chemical resistance properties. It is applied in two coats using a brush or roller.
The Drybase ECS CR Epoxy Coating coating is hardy, damp proof, and resistant to a wide range of chemicals once cured. This is a fantastic choice for usage on floors and walls that will come into touch with chemicals.
Drybase ECS CR Epoxy Coating Applications
- Damp proofing floors in kitchens and other food processing areas
- Waterproofing concrete floors in warehouses
- Light industrial factory areas – to give resistance to foot traffic and light vehicular traffic
- Liquid DPM for concrete floor as a rising damp treatment
- Damp proof membrane for walls
ECS Epoxy Floor Coating is applied in two coats. The second coat should be applied as soon as the first coat has completely dried (typically 18 to 24 hours).
Coverage – Typically 10 – 20 m2 per 5 kg pack (based on two coats).
Application for Drybase ECS CR Epoxy Coating
All surfaces should be clean, dry, and free from oil, grease and chemical contamination. Concrete surfaces should be free from laitance; this should be removed by either scarifying, wire brushing or preferably by high pressure water or sand blasting. Blow holes or other surface irregularities should be repaired. Concrete surfaces should be at least 21 days old.
Use only full packs. To ensure successful application, the entire contents of the (Part B) hardener tin should be added to the (Part A) base tin and slowly stirred for at least four minutes until thoroughly mixed, taking care not to entrain air into the mix. It is recommended that a variable speed high torque drill with a grout stirrer is used. Care should be taken to prevent unmixed material remaining on the side of the tin by scraping down the sides occasionally.
The product may be applied by brush or short pile simulated lambswool roller. Application of two coats (the second coat being applied at right angles to the first) is recommended.
The first coat should be applied to the prepared surface and allowed to dry overnight, typically 18 – 24 hours. As soon as the first coat has completely dried, the second coat should be applied. Each coat should be applied as a continuous film. The second and final coat should be allowed to dry for a minimum of 24 hours prior to exposure to chemicals. All equipment should be cleaned with solvent immediately after use. Note that all mixed material must be used immediately and cannot be stored, as it will cure into a resin.
Ambient and surfaces temperatures should be between 10 °C and 35 °C at the time of application. When working in enclosed areas it is important to create sufficient air flow in order to maintain an ambient relative humidity value of below 85 % at all times during the curing period. It is recommended that the substrate to receive the coating should not have a moisture content of more than 75 % RH. This can be assessed using
a hair hygrometer covered with polythene for 24 hours as recommended by BS 8203.
