HIGH PERFORMANCE EPOXY FLOOR COATING

SpECtop ARE125 is a high performance solvent
based epoxy coating consisting of two components
for mixing on-site. The coating, once cured, provides
a strong layer with good adhesion to cementitious
and steel substrates.

Preparation
It is essential that adequate preparation is carried out prior to the application of SpECtop ARE125

Concrete
Light sweep blasting is strongly recommended to ensure the removal of all laitance, grease and oil.

Mixing
SpECtop ARE125 is supplied in a two-component kit consisting of a pigmented base component and a curing agent.

Both of the components should be briefly stirred to ensure that any settlement products are fully suspended.
The entire contents of the curing agent should be emptied into the base components ensuring that the sides of the curing agent tin are carefully scraped to removal all of the material.

Application
The mixed product may be applied by brush or roller.

The quantity of material used per coat and the number of coats may vary depending on the porosity of the substrate and the surface profile. The application of excessive volumes of product should be avoided as this will result in solvent entrapment affecting both surface finish and the subsequent performances of the coating.

Slip resistant finish
If a slip resistant finish is to be provided then SpECtop NS GRAINS is required. SpECtop NS GRAINS are supplied in pre-weighed bags.
For a slip resistant profile the first coat of SpECtop ARE125 should be completely blinded with SpECtop NS GRAINS. This should be carried out while the coating is still wet. When the first coat has reached its initial cure (12 hours @ 20°C), the excess aggregate should be removed and the surface vacuumed to remove any residue. The topcoat is then applied.
SpECtop ARE125 is supplied in the pack sizes given below with the following recommended coverage rate.
