ES100 Heavy Duty Epoxy Resin Floor Screed
A synergistic combination of epoxy resin, curing agents and specially graded inert fillers, producing a heavy duty chemical and abrasion resistant floor finish which has been developed to provide long term durability in a range of demanding applications. Epigard ES100 is suitable for use in a wide range of industries such as the following: Food processing and Brewing industries, where durable, chemical-resistant, hygienic finishes are required, with special emphasis on effective anti-slip yet easily cleanable surface profiles. Chemical and Pharmaceutical industries, where resistance to a wide range of aggressive chemicals can be of paramount importance, and abrasion, wear resistance and effective anti-slip in dry powder environments is required. Engineering and Manufacturing industries where allround durability is required including good impact resistance.

Tested in accordance with B.S. 6319 (where applicable) Thickness - Can be laid between 5-9mm Preferred application temperature 15°C Note: Below 15°C, the workability reduces and cure rate lengthens, as the temperature decreases. Below 5°C, the cure is halted and systems become unworkable. Initial cure (foot traffic) 16 hours Medium cure (vehicular traffic) 48 hours Full chemical cure 7 days. Cure times based on ambient temp. Of 15°C Consult our technical services dept. where temperatures during application are outside the range 15°C-35°C.

To achieve optimal chemical resistance from the Epigard ES 100 system, it is essential to overcoat with a minimum two coat application of the resin sealer. The above table is offered for guidance only. In service conditions can affect long-term resistance. Consultations with our Technical Dept. must be sought prior to application.
d) Spread the screed over the measured area and consolidate with tamping bar or trowel. Finally, close surface with a steel float or provide a granular textured, sealed finish. The trowel can be lubricated, if required, with an absorbent rag dampened with water.
Expansion Joints : Preparation:
Epigard ES100 can be installed over most structurally sound building surfaces. Comprehensive preparation must always be undertaken to ensure optimum adhesion. It is essential that surfaces to be treated are clean, sound and dry. Surfaces to be overlaid should be mechanically scarified, ground or shotblasted to remove all traces of laitance and contamination and to provide a mechanical key. Existing concrete, which may be lightly contaminated with substances such as oil or grease or others likely to compromise adhesion, should be mechanically scarified down to clean concrete. Heavier contamination may need detergent washing or de-greasing and/or ‘Hot Compressed Air’ treatment in conjunction with mechanical treatments as described. Surfaces treated with detergents or de-greasing agents should be neutralized and thoroughly dried. New concrete should be fully cured and allowed to dry. Relative humidity readings of no more than 75RH units when measured with a Hair Hygrometer determine sufficient cure. A power floated finish is ideal although a well compacted steel or beam float finish is acceptable. Alternatively, the concrete surface can be stiff broomed and then early age ground while green to remove laitance and provide an aggregate exposed finish. Old concrete should have all contamination removed as described above, any loose or friable material should be mechanically removed. All concrete should contain an effective damp proof membrane to prevent rising dampness or osmosis. If the slab does not contain a D.P.M. advice should be sought from our technical dept. Toe-in grooves should be cut into the concrete surface at all open perimeters to provide maximum bond at vulnerable edges. Steel surfaces should be degreased followed by grit blasting to Swedish Standard SA2 ½. Our contracting service incorporates many other substrate preparation techniques. A comprehensive guide to preparation and application is enclosed with each individual quotation. Expansion Joints in the existing substrate must be maintained and continued through the Epigard ES100.
Tools and equipment in the existing substrate should be cleaned with Rizistal No. 1 solvent immediately after use.
Health and Safety:
All skin contact from Epigard ES100 should be avoided. Barrier creams should be used and operatives should wear all necessary protective clothing including gloves. After contact with the skin the area should be washed thoroughly with soap and water or resin removing cream. In case of accidental eye or mouth contact, flush with water - seek medical advice immediately. Working and mixing areas should be well ventilated. The hardener component is alkaline and is labelled corrosive. The resin component is labelled as an irritant. The flash point of all components is in excess of 100°C. In the event of fire use dry chemical carbon dioxide, water fog or foam type extinguishers.

a) Prepare substrate as outlined above. b) Mix tack coat and apply to the surface to be treated at a rate of 0.5 kg per sq. metre. Additional Tack Coat may be required if the surface is porous or roughly profiled. c) Mix the mortar in a suitable mixer (the horizontal pan type is recommended such as Cretangle or Casco)
