EP Primer XFH Product Details
EP Primer XFH is a very fast curing two part epoxy primer. This unique formulation allows the primer to adhere to damp surfaces and cures within 4-6 hours, allowing over-coating to take place the same day.
Use on: Concrete
Use where: Internal/External
Typical industries: Typical industries include medical, animal and foot processing, and environments which require the coating to take place in the same day
Type of job:Preparation of a surface prior to over-coating. To ensure a good inter-coat bond, the topcoat should be applied between 4 and 36 hours after application of the Primer
Approximate coverage: 5kg – up to 20m2
Special features:Low viscosity for excellent penetration, solvent free, damp tolerant non toxic and non taint, fast curing – can be over-coated with Polycote Flortex SG or Polycote WD Primer after only 4-6 hours
Pot life:15 mins @ 20oC
Application temperature:10oC – 25oC
Initial cure time:6-8 hours @ 20oC
Number of parts supplied:2
Primer for:Polycote Flortex product range
Please consult the technical data sheet for full product technical data.
Preparation:Thorough substrate preparation is essential.Recommended methods are:Powerfloated concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster to remove weak laitance and provide a surface key for the coating. If this is not possible, chemically etch with Polycote Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.Loose paint or rust – remove, using a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster, Floor Grinder or equivalent method.
Loose or friable concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster. If this is not possible, chemically clean with Polycote Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.Oil or grease – use Hot Compressed Air for large areas of contamination. Smaller, isolated deposits may be chemically cleaned with Polycote Degrease IT then rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry.See relevant Data Sheet prior to application.For best results the surface must be dry but EP Primer XFH will tolerate damp surfaces.Once prepared, the area must be kept clean and free of traffic.
Mixing:Having fully prepared the substrate, stir the individual components before mixing together. Add part ‘B’ to part ‘A’ and thoroughly mix for at least 3 minutes. For best results use a slow speed drill with a mixing paddle. Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation.
Application:Apply immediately by brush, roller or squeegee, making sure that the surface is completely covered, working the primer well into the surface. Failure to do this may allow the floor to ‘breathe’ and result in pinholing or bubbles in the epoxy top coat.When finished, DO NOT scrape the remaining contents from the container as this will invariably include unmixed raw resin.
