Ressi EPO Chem Might is a two-component epoxy resin coating system for concrete and cementitious floor surfaces. It cures to a semi-gloss, impervious finish. The applied thickness of Ressi EPO Chem Might is between 300 to 4000 Microns. Ressi EPO Chem Might provide a hard tough easily cleanable and attractive floor coating in areas where high resistance to chemical attack is required. It is suitable for use in workshops, car parks, dairies, kitchens, hospitals, laboratories, showrooms, light to medium duty industrial floor coatings, etc.
- High level of protection and durability.
- Hygienic impervious finish provides easily maintained surface.
- Excellent bond strength to concrete and steel.
- High resistance to a wide range of industrial chemicals.
- Can be applied by brush roller or spray.
Surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry, sound, free of mold release agents, bond breaking coatings, curing compounds, or any other form of contamination that may affect the adhesion of the epoxy flooring to the substrate. Surface preparation must be done using appropriate methods like grinding or wire brushing and vacuumed. All loose concrete should be removed until a sound substrate is reached. Ressi EPO Chem Might can be used to repair the floor cracks and some uneven surfaces prior to the application of Ressi EPO Chem Might. New Cementitious surfaces should be at least 28 days old and have a moisture content less than 5% prior to application.
Priming is optional. If the surface is highly porous and rough textured, priming is recommended. Ressi EPO Primer is the Recommended primer to be used in conjunction with Ressi EPO Chem Might. The primer should be brushed into the substrate using a stiff brush or roller and allowed to dry before the application of Ressi EPO Chem Might. In case of extremely porous substrates, two coats of primer are recommended. Allow the first coat of Ressi EPO Primer to dry before the application of the second coat.
Ressi EPO Chem Might is supplied in premeasured quantities. Base and hardener should be stirred separately before mixing. Both the components should be mixed using a slow speed drill machine fitted with a paddle mixer for 2 minutes to get a uniform liquid mix. Scrape the sides, edges and bottom of the mixing container using a spatula and continue mixing for a further 2 minutes.
Apply the first coat of Ressi EPO Chem Might on the prepared surface using a brush, roller or spray. Allow for a minimum 4 hours drying time. Treat pinholes, surface irregularities with Ressi EPO Crack Fill or Ressi EPO Primer (Whichever is the suitable product for the job site) and allow it to dry before the application of subsequent coat.
