Cretex OT Mortar Epoxy Garage Floor Repair

Cretex OT Mortar Epoxy Garage Floor Repair

Garages and workshops face a big issue when attempting to paint or repair floors is the presence of oil and grease.
Oil soaks/penetrates deep into the substrate and no matter how much the surface is prepared; the underlying oil then rises back up to the surface.
The floor repair can ‘pop’ causing it to delaminate from the substrate.
Polycote has specifically formulated Cretex OT Mortar Epoxy Garage Floor Repair to adhere to oil contaminated garage and workshop floors.
Incredibly strong floor repairs are achieved when applied down to a feather edge.
This not only eliminates the need to break out even more concrete but also making the job far easier and quicker to accomplish.

  • Ultra tough epoxy garage floor repair mortar
  • Can be feather edged
  • Highly oil tolerant floor repair mortar
  • Solvent free, non-toxic and non-taint
  • Extremely easy to use, no specialist skills needed
  • Excellent performance on damp walls and floors
  • XFH (Extra Fast Hardening) version available where downtime is limited
  • 33kg unit

Further help:


Crackfiller EP100 should be used for very thin and hairline cracks. It is an ultra low viscosity epoxy and designed to flow down into very thin fissures.

Expansion Joints

If you have issues with expansion joints, please note that you should not fill these with a hard epoxy mortar.
By inserting such a mortar means the slab cannot ‘move’ which in turn can cause the slab to crack elsewhere, thus causing even more long-term problems.
For expansion joints, use of one of our Jointex products, designed to successfully fill expansion joint and provide a long term solution.

Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Remove all loose material. Wire brushing is advisable. Sweep clean or vacuum.
The surface must be free from grease, oil or contamination. Polycote Degrease IT may be used to clean the area but this must be thoroughly rinsed off and the substrate dried, before applying Cretex OT Mortar. Alternatively, should the surface be particularly porous or weak, Polycote OT Primer has superb penetrative properties and will seal and ‘lock’ the substrate. The primer should be allowed to fully cure before the application of the OT Mortar. See relevant data sheets for full information.
Having fully prepared the substrate, add the whole of Part B to the whole of Part A and mix thoroughly for at least 3 minutes. For best results use a slow speed drill with a mixing paddle. Finally, pour the liquid into the large bucket and add the aggregate to the desired consistency. Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation.
Apply by trowel, or by hand for small isolated areas, wearing suitable protective gloves.
Being resin-rich, Cretex OT Mortar has a typically sticky consistency and smoothing may be assisted by wetting the trowel using Polycote Solvent Cleaner as a release agent.
If when trowelling the mortar the texture remains ‘open’ this can be easily ‘closed’ by slightly tamping the surface with the trowel. This can provide an extremely hard wearing and completely sealed surface.
For vertical repairs – where step nosings or expansion joint edges have broken away, the vertical face of the repair material should be supported to prevent slumping.
Suitable sized wooden shuttering should be covered with polythene to reduce adhesion, and should be removed as soon as the material is firm.
