Epox-A-Top

 
 

Description

EPOX-A-TOP is a 100% solvent free, two component, structural epoxy, primarily used for coating and resurfacing damaged concrete. It is used for waterproofing and protecting floors against corrosion and deterioration caused by water, chemicals and heavy traffic. Epox-A-Top is an ideal coating for beams due to excellent chemical resistance.

MEETS ASTM C-881, TYPE 1& 3, GRADE 1, CLASS B & C

Basic Use

EPOX-A-TOP can be mixed with sand to make a trowel able motor. It can also be made into a flow able grout for filling holes or cavities. EPOX-A-TOP can be used as a coating. It can be applied by brush, rollers or squeegee. For a non-skid surface, sand can be broadcast on the first coat while still wet. Apply second coat if needed.

Grades available: Epox-A-Top STD. Fast set or acid resistant.

Advantages

Easy to mix and trowel

100% solids formula (no solvents)

Excellent adhesion to concrete, steel and wood

No shrinkage

Clear and also available in colors

Excellent chemical resistance

Excellent for grouting bolts and rebar


Surface Preparation

Area must be clean, sound and dry. Conventional cleaning methods used are acid etching, shot-blasting or aqua-blasting. Dense concrete should be acid etched exposing small aggregate particles and giving the appearance of sandpaper.


Mixing Instructions

Stir each component separately

Blend 2 parts of base to 1 part of reactor by volume and mix completely

When preparing mortar, mix in 3-4 parts of aggregate by volume using a slow speed electric drill with paddle
