Application Guide for Solitkote Epoxy Coating & Primer


Solitkote Primer  
Surfaces to be coated must be clean, free from  all residues of oil, grease, dust,  laitance, debris, etc, for achieving  maximum adhesion of the primer. The substrate should be  slightly roughen ( sand blasting if possible ), dry ( maximum 4% moisture content,  at least 28 days old for concrete ) 
Surface to be coated must be sound and solid, and  levelled. Cracks and water  leakage areas should be pretreated and reinforced with epoxy mortar  or PU injection system. 

Solitkote Epoxy 
Top Coat Surfaces to be coated must be clean, free from  all residues of oil, grease, dust,  laitance, etc , for achieving  maximum adhesion of the primer. Avoid excessive roughness on surface to be coated.  Tendency of show-through  can  cause high spots and excessive wear.

1. New Concrete 
For substrate that not water-reduced, it should be at least 28 days old, not exceeding  75% RH ( hygrometer reading ) and prime with Solitkote primer. 
2. Old Concrete 
Surfaces to be coated must be clean, free from  all residues of oil, grease, dust, etc. For maximum adhesion / performance, surface should be  grit- blasted lightly and   prime with Solitkote primer. 
3. Metal Surface 
Surfaces to be coated must be clean, free from  all residues of oil, grease, dust, etc.  For maximum adhesion / performance, surface should be  grit- blasted  and prime with Solitkote primer.

 Mixing 
All the products  must be mixed according to the ratio stated in the respective  data sheet. All product must be mixed homogeneously prior application. A stirrer powered by pneumatic and electricity can be used, with 300 - 400 rpm for  minimum 3-5 minutes;  longer time may be required for certain circumstances. 

Application and Recoating 
1. Solitkote Primer 
The mixed product should be applied by brush for first coat to ensure maximum penetration.  
Second coat - using  brush or roller  after 4 - 6 hours depending on specific grade. 
2. Epoxy Top Coat
The mixed product should be applied by brush  or roller. 
Second coat -  12 - 16 hours depending on type of surface and ambient conditions.

Limitations 
Solitkote Epoxy Coating should not be applied onto  the surface with following  conditions : 
 * Low temperature, <  5 °C .  
 *  > RH  75%. 
 * Rising damp. 
 * Very high traffic.
 * Asphalt floor, PVC flooring products. 

Cleaning 
Tools and equipment  should be cleaned with thinner immediately after use. 

Safety Precaution 
* Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation. 
* Observe the safety regulations  in accordance with federal, state and local  authorities. 
* Minimise skin contact. 
* Use of disposable glove is recommended. 
* Wash areas of contact with soap and plenty of water.
