Ressi EPO Tough Might is a two-component epoxy resin based heavy duty and impact resistant epoxy flooring. It is designed for trowel application in thickness between 300 microns to 4000 microns. Ressi EPO Tough Might provides a tough, high abrasion and impact resistant topping. It is used either as a coating or a screed for flooring where excellent mechanical properties with superior abrasion and wear characteristics are required. It can be used for industrial floorings, warehouses, workshops, ramps, garages, airport maintenance areas, metal processing and engineering units and areas subject heavy traffic. It can also be used as a coving or patch repair product
- Excellent mechanical properties.
- Can be easily overcoated with any epoxy or PU Coating.
- Excellent abrasion resistance and adhesion to concrete surfaces.
- Excellent resistance to impact.
- Easy to apply.
- Early development of initial hardness and minimization of down time.
- 3 to 4 times stronger than typical concrete.
- Good bond strength.
Surfaces should be free from grease, oil, chemical contamination, dust, laitance, and loose concrete. Appropriate surface preparation equipment such as shot blast, Scarified or grinder must be used to obtain sound substrate. Surfaces which show any traces of oil must be degreased with a chemical degreaser prior to any surface preparation or grit blasting. Cracks, pinholes, potholes should be repaired with Ressi EPO Crack Fill. Uneven concrete should be levelled to produce flat surfaces. New concrete floors must be at least 28 days old prior to application. Moisture content of the concrete or cementitious floors must be less than 5%. Expansion, control & isolation joints should be carried through floors filled with a suitable sealant
Prepared surfaces should be primed using Ressi EPO Primer. The primer should be brushed into the substrate using a stiff brush or roller and allowed to become tacky (10-20mins) before the application of Ressi EPO Tough Might. The primer should be allowed to dry. If the primer has dried, additional coat of the primer should be applied and allowed to become tacky
Stir the base and hardener components separately. Once both components are mixed, they should be mixed thoroughly using a slow speed drill attached with paddle for at least 3 minutes (400-600 rpm) until a uniform homogenous mix is achieved.
Lay Ressi EPO Tough Might over the prepared surface whilst the primer is still tacky. Spread out with a notched trowel to a uniform thickness. Level the material using appropriate trowels and tools to the desired level. Stroke with a steel trowel to achieve a sealed resin rich surface. A Spiked roller can also be used to achieve a uniform surface.
At higher temperatures pot life will be reduced. For working in temperatures below 5°C Ressi EPO Tough Might may need to be put in a hot water bath.
