All substrates shall be stable and solid.
Note: The ability of new or existing floors to take the loads as a result of the CHEMIPROTECT
QUICKFLOOR must be checked prior to installing. All control joints junction cracks in the substrate etc are to be properly treated.
CONCRETE must be mechanically trowel led finish. Then preparation is achieved by captive shot blasting or other coarse abrasive methods. Eg Diamond grinding. QUICKFLOOR will not adhere to curing or = release agents. Concrete shall be cured for a minimum of 28 days prior to laying QUICKFLOOR. The moisture content shall be less than 5%
Plywood or Timber: consult CHEMIPROTECT ENGINEERS for more information. Note: If the substrate is an above grade slab and waterproofing is required the tank the floor and cove upstands with a layer of 450gsm CSM fiberglass. This will provide a seamless waterproofing layer. Ensure the floor is clean. Dry and prepared as above. QUICKFLOOR can be applied over any common resin floor topping as long as it thoroughly checked for soundness and grinding or Shot blasting is applied to the old surface. Consult us before installing QUICKFLOOR on any suspended floor slabs.
BOND TEST: Prior to full application of primer, a bond test shall be conducted to check adequacy of substrate preparation and bond. The bond of the primer to the sub-base should be grater then the tensile strength of the sub-base. A successful test shows sub-base material and sheared aggregate bonded fully to the sample.
APPLICATION : This product is applied by the: Roller coat & broadcast (spread & sprinkle) technique or self level & Broadcast technique. Prime the properly prepared floor areas with TWO coats of QUICKFLOOR Primer. Coverage rate and number of coats will vary depending on the porosity of the substrate, Coverage 3 - 4m2 /Kg./coat. Primer and its hardener are to be thoroughly mixed in the correct proportions.
SELF LEVEL BASE COAT To apply by the self level method the resin is mixed with a special blend of aggregates (refer to CHEMIPROTECT) and this is then mixed with catalyst normally. This mixture is then applied with notched trowel on floor. This will help “pit and hole” filling and gives a more even surface. Broadcast aggregates of the chosen type to complete.
SEAL COAT: Once finished and hardened apply 1 coat of QUICKFLOOR Topcoat at a spread rate no greater then 3.5m2 /kg/coat. Topcoat must be applied to the QUICKFLOOR base coat promptly to avoid contamination.
JOINTS: All concrete control and construction joints should be filled with suitable hard & flexible Epoxy mortar.
HEALTH & SAFETY: Overalls are recommended when using this product. Wear gloves if this suits the user as the material will bound strongly to skin.
- Fumes may be cloying in enclosed areas. The use of fans to provide positive forced air draft and/ or extraction is recommended. The levels of fumes have been shown to be well below recommended levels.
- Flammable 3C. Erect “No Smoking” signs. No welding or naked flames permitted during installation. Have fire extinguishers readily available.
SHELF LIFE: 12 months in unopened containers. After this period suitability for use should be checked in consultation with CHEMIPROTECT ENGINEERS.
PACKGING: Resin: 18kg metal pails, 180 kg drums. Catalyst: 1 KG, 25kg boxes. Filler: 25 Kgs, Color Quartz: 25 Kgs.
Maintenance and Cleaning
Repairs can be undertaken with further new QUICKFLOOR applied directly or use Epoxy repair system.
Cleaning: QUICKFLOOR floor is cleaned with stiff bristled brushes and detergents. The stiff bristle brushes and commercial detergents will remove dirt from the non-slip surface that a soft mop will not. The waxed nature of our top coating system may attract dirt during the early life of the product. Pay careful attention to cleaning at this stage.
