Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coatings
- Provides easy-to-clean finish
- Resistant to oils, greases, solvents & other chemicals
- Tough, durable surface resistance
Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coatings for damp proofing floors and walls. Applied by brush or roller to provide protective coating that can easily be cleaned. Once painted on, Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating provides resistance to oils and greases.
Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating can be used as a liquid damp-proof membrane (DPM) for floors and walls and to provide a durable, decorative finish.
- 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).
Chemical Resistance – See datasheet.
Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating Application Instructions
All contact surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and provide a "light" mechanical key. Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating can be applied as a damp-proof coating to damp substrates as long as they are free from surface water. However, where Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating is being used to provide a decorative finish, it is important that it is applied to a dry substrate.
Remove all loose material, paint, plaster and oily deposits. For best results, light grit blasting is recommended.
Pour all of the "Part B" component into the "Part A" container and mix using a slow-speed, high-torque drill with a Grout Stirrer for at least 4 minutes. Note that all mixed material cannot be stored, as it will cure into a resin within 18 to 24 hours.
The use of a brush for the first coat is recommended. The second coat should be applied as soon as the first coat has completely dried. Each coat should be applied as a thin continuous film. Ponding must be avoided as the thickness will entrap water and prevent proper curing.
For the second coat, the use of a brush or a short pile simulated lambs wool roller is satisfactory. Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating can also be applied by roller for faster application to larger areas.
Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating should be applied at ambient and surface temperatures between 10°C and 35°C. For applications outside of this temperature range, contact our technical department. The ambient relative humidity must be below 85% at all times during the curing period. When working in enclosed areas, it is important to create sufficient air flow to maintain the humidity below this value. It is recommended that substrates 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.
