Surface preparation

Steel

  • Epilux 155SF should be applied to a surface that has been blast cleaned. It may be applied directly to blast cleaned steel or over a suitable primer, e.g. Epilux 610.
  • Remove all wax, oil and grease by solvent cleaning in accordance with the guidelines given by SSPC-SP1. Wherever necessary, remove weld spatter and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to a smooth surface.
  • Abrasive blast clean to a minimum standard of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP10. An average surface profile of 75 – 100 microns is required.
  • Ensure that all surface defects detected after blast cleaning is ground, filled or treated in a suitable manner.
  • After blasting, remove dust from the surface. Ensure that the surface to be coated is clean, dry and free from any contaminants.
  • Apply Epilux 155SF immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. The use of a dehumidification system and/or the use of a suitable blast/holding primer such as Epilux 610, is recommended to prevent oxidation of the blasted steel surface. In case of oxidation/recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.

Concrete

  • New concrete should be left for at least 21 days to cure before coating.
  • The moisture content of the concrete surface should be checked and ensured to be below 6% when measured with a reliable moisture meter, such as the Sovereign Moisture Meter.
  • The surface should be dry, free from surface contaminants, sound and undamaged.
  • Apply one coat of suitable concrete primer/sealer such as Luxafloor 1000.

 Application procedure

Mix the two components of this product only when ready to apply. Once mixed, apply immediately. As this product has a very short pot life, delays in application may adversely affect wetting, adhesion and self-levelling properties and may jam up airless spray equipment.
