Surface preparation

Steel
• Epilux 218 should be applied to a surface that has been blast cleaned and suitably primed (e.g. with Epilux 610).
• Ensure that the surface to be over-coated is clean, dry, free from dust, grease, oil, or any other surface contaminants. Fresh water wash to remove all soluble salts.
• The underlying system should be intact, sound and undamaged. Damaged areas should be prepared to specified standard (e.g. SA 2½ or SSPC-SP6 abrasive blasting or SSPCSP- 11 power tool cleaning) and patch primed prior to the application of Epilux 218.
• Always ensure that the maximum over-coating time for the primer/ build coat should not exceeded prior to application.

Concrete
• Ensure that the surface is sound. Remove laitence by thorough wire-brushing, acid etching or sweep blasting. Blowholes and other defects should be filled with Solventless Epoxy Filler. Thin the first coat of Epilux 218 by 20% for direct application to concrete.

Application procedure

Stir contents of the can thoroughly before use. Thinning is not usually required. However, if thinning is desired, do not exceed the recommended thinning ratio.
