Product Details remove

Watco has developed a highly advanced formulation that puts Epoxicote High Build into a class of its own. This one coat, high build, virtually solvent free epoxy resin floor coating, guarantees exceptional wear and offers superior protection for concrete floors. The ‘rapid’ versions cure within just 8 hours to withstand light traffic saving on downtime, whilst the ‘anti slip’ versions provide a good level of slip resistance where needed. The anti slip particles are suspended in the coating making it easy to use and leaves a uniform textured finish.

Epoxicote High Build Cold Cure can be applied in cold conditions and also comes in a slip resistant version. Epoxicote High Build Advanced contains a ceramic additive, making it our ultimate floor coating. This ultra-tough formulation creates a surface hardness designed to cope with the most challenging of environments.

All grades now carry CE Mark EN1504-2 and have impressive test results for hardness, abrasion, scratch and impact resistance, as well as for adhesion, slip resistance and flexibility. They also offer superior chemical resistance, and have an A+ VOC emissions rating with a low level of VOC.

Dry Film Thickness 220 microns.
Wet Film Thickness 220 microns.
Usage Interior / Exterior Interior.
Application Tools Medium pile roller. Cut in using a brush.
Min Application Temperature (°C) Air temperature 15°C, floor temperature 10°C (5°C for ‘Cold Curing’ versions).
Suitable For Concrete, sand and cement, well bonded paint and some metals. The moisture content of concrete should be less than 75% RH.
Coverage 18m².
Pot Time (hours) 25 mins at 20°C (‘Advanced’ & ‘Rapid’ versions 20 mins at 20°C).
Mix Ratio 100 parts resin : 24 parts curing agent.
Cleaning Tools It is not practical to clean applicators and they should be discarded after use.
Shelf Life 12 months in unopened container.

Storage Between 15°C-25°C for at least 8 hours prior to use. Do not allow to freeze.
Principle Limitations Most self-levelling compounds cannot be painted – please ask for details. Unsuitable for asphalt. Painting chequer plate can be a problem since coatings can wear prematurely off the ‘high spots’. Do not apply to damp surfaces.

How to Apply add

SURFACE PREPARATION

Bare Concrete – remove surface laitance, dust and any light dirt or grease deposits using Watco Etch & Clean. Watco Etch & Clean also etches smooth, bare concrete surfaces to provide a key. Flush with clean water and allow surface to dry. For the removal of heavier deposits of oil and grease we recommend Watco Concroff, again, flush with clean water and allow the surface to dry.

New Concrete – as a guide, new concrete should be left for eight weeks to dry (if the application has to go ahead before this, use Watco New Concrete Primer). The surface should then be prepared using Watco Etch & Clean and thoroughly rinsed away and left to dry prior to applying this coating.

Painted surfaces – abrade to remove any weak or loose paint. Check remaining paint is well bonded. Very smooth, glossy paint should be lightly abraded to provide a key. Watco Bio D can be used to remove grease and oil from painted surfaces. Watco Concroff is a very powerful degreaser for contaminated bare concrete, (do not use on a previously painted surface since it can soften paint).

Priming – is not usually required, but for open textured, or very porous high suction surfaces, such as sand and cement screed, use Watco 4 Hour Epoxy Primer to ensure a uniform finish and to prevent air entrapment bubbles. Very smooth or power floated concrete should be primed with Watco Powerfloat Primer.

Metal – remove any rust and flaking material by disc grinding or wire brushing. Apply the coating immediately after preparation to the clean metal surface. Grease or oil can be removed using Watco Bio D. Allow the metal to dry before coating.

Galvanised Metal – Watco Galvaprime must be used to prepare galvanised metal.

Non-ferrous Metals - for advice, please contact our Technical Department.

MIXING

Remove the two inner tins from the tall outer tin. Stir the contents of each tin thoroughly and pour all of the contents into the outer tin, (scrape around the inside of the tins to remove any residue). Mix the components together thoroughly using a spatula or similar wide bladed tool, (a piece of wooden batten is ideal) and do not thin. Continue mixing until an even colour and consistency are obtained. Do not mix more than one pack at a time. If a paint stirrer fitted to an electric drill is used, also use the spatula to blend in any unmixed material from the sides and bottom of the tin. In the anti slip versions the slip resistant particles are already pre-blended (in the Curing Agent).

APPLICATION

Important - once the contents of the pack have been mixed, a chemical reaction takes place which creates heat. The product should therefore be decanted into a shallow tray to avoid reducing the pot life and used straight away. Best results are obtained in warm (minimum of 15°C), dry conditions with good ventilation. Apply one coat with a medium pile roller, (not foam), working well into the surface of the concrete. On vertical surfaces 2 thin coats are recommended. Do not exceed the maximum coverage of 18m2 per 4 litre pack. Do not wash or allow water to lie on the surface for at least 7 days.
