Which epoxy paint is applied?
The epoxy coating is applied as a protective coating and decorative paint on cementitious substrates (concrete, cement mortar, etc.) as well as on horizontal and vertical steel surfaces.
Epoxy paint is recommended for:
As well as for anti-corrosion protection of metal structures
High mechanical strength
Elasticity to bridging cracks
Adhesion to the substrate
Ability to create a glossy, matte and non-slip surface
Resistance to acidic alkalis, oils and solvents.
The substrate must be free of substances that prevent adhesion such as oil, rust,
Preparation of the substrate consists sanding or sandblasting, etc. depending on the condition of the substrate.
Especially cement-based substrates should not contain more than 4% moisture and have a surface strength greater than 1.5 N /mm2
After preparing the substrate, the surface should be coated with a suitable primer to seal the pores and capillaries and create a sound surface for application of the epoxy coating.
The amount of primer required depends on the absorbency of the surface.
Epoxy materials are two components:
A (Resin) and B (Hardener)
They are mixed with this ratio in a third vessel with a low-speed drill and the homogenized mixture is applied with a brush, roller or airless spray
