Ultra Clear Epoxy Topcoat (100UC) Part A and Part B (100A and 100B).
Tray Ideally 270mm but 230mm is ok. Ideally, Grinder to grind the surface, if unavailable, acid wash the surface followed by Detergent rinse and flush. Vacuum or blower to clean up the surface. Prepare the floor by concrete grinding and removal of surface materials. Ensure the surface is perfectly clean and free of oil and grease.If grinder is unavailable, acid wash and make sure you wash, rinse and flush with detergent to neutralize the surface and remove all acid residue. Vacuum and/or blow out to remove dust from the surface. Tape all around the walls and surfaces not to be epoxy coated. Add your desired Tint/Liquid Pigment (basecoat colour) into your Epoxy Resin (105A) Basecoat Part A , and mix well using drill mixer or a stick.
If your product is pre-tinted by supplier, just mix it for a few minutes to homogenize the resin. Add Epoxy Diluent or Xylene up to 10% to thin the product, especially in the first coat, and mix well. DO NOT count the Diluent, Pigments or other additives as Part A, for example if you have 2Kg of Part A, add 1Kg of Part B, regardless of the quantity of other additives uses. Prepare your tray, roller, Brush, handle and other application gears and when ready for application.
Add Part B (Curing Agent / Hardener) into the resin and mix for 2-3 minutes using drill mixer or stick. You are now on the clock, the pot-lift of the product is 15-30min (15 for fast cure/30 for normal cure). Do not waste time and focus on applying the product to the surface. One person doing the corners and cuttings and one person the main floor. Use spike roller to burst any bubble that may have been released from the substrate.Monitor the floor and walk all over the floor and continue rolling until you are satisfied with the appearance and uniformity of the floor. Poor surface prep or incorrect application may cause bubbling and non-uniformity of the surface. Spend AT LEAST one hour after application monitoring and ensuring its great look. When application is complete and you are happy with the appearance of the floor, let it cure for a minimum of 8 hours, ideally overnight 16 hours.
Put-on your spike shoes and take the masking tapes off the walls as it will be too hard to take off when cured. Let it cure for a minimum of 8 hours, ideally overnight. As the curing process begins you may notice the accumulation of air bubbles at the top and around the edges of your resin or epoxy, especially where the surface is super porous and not primed properly. This is a normal result of the reaction occurring between the resin and the hardener. To remedy bubble issue, we recommend using spike roller, go over the surface as it is curing.
The blow will pop the bubbles, giving you a smooth unblemished surface. When the surface is dry and fully cured, plan to apply Ultra Clear Epoxy Topcoat. Ultra Clear Epoxy Topcoat enhances the scratch and chemical resistance of the surface. For residential applications, probably you can get away without Ultra Clear Topcoat Epoxy (100UC). Alternatively, you can use Polyurethane UV resistant topcoat or Acrylic Sealer.
Add the correct quantity of Ultra Clear Epoxy Hardener / Curing Agent (100B) into the correct quantity of Part A, Resin. For example, if using 100UC3, pour 2Kg of Resin Part A (100B2) into a bucket, add 1Kg of Hardener/Part B (100B1) into the resin, mix for 2-3 minutes using Drill Mixer or stick. Now you are on the clock, DO NOT waste time, initiate application. You must be prepared for application.
One person applies the corners and edges using baby-roller or a brush and another person apply to the main floor. If you are slow, pour the resin on the floor, to slow down the curing process.When, you are happy with the topcoat, take the masking tapes off the walls as it will be too hard to take off when cured. Clear the floor, wipe and clean all your tools. Let it cure over-night (16 hours). It is trafficable after 16 hours. No driving or stretching furniture over the floor for 2 weeks. Treat it with care, especially during the first few days. It may take a couple of weeks till the Epoxy reaches its optimal hardness and strength.
