Appearance

A smooth gloss finish in a range of attractive colours. Can have a textured finish with the addition of Anti-slip Aggregate.

Options: 

  • Fast Cure (faster drying times)
  • Skydrol-resistant (ideal for aviation hangars where fuel leaks are likely to happen).

Typical Installations

  • Processing and manufacturing plants.
  • Frequent fork lift truck traffic areas
  • Factories and warehousing
  • Food preparation, food storage areas and breweries.
  • Commercial garages, vehicle repair and maintenance depots, aircraft hangers
  • Chemical plant storage areas.
  • Car Parks

Advantages

  • Even on rough and uneven floors, it will cure to give a smooth, easy to clean surface.
  • Excellent chemical resistance.
  • Hygienic, seamless floor finish.
  • Low odour
  • Solvent free
  • Will not support bacterial growth.

Can be made decorative with the addition of Virtus PVA Flakes scattered into the wet resin, once dry, sand down any protruding or Flake edges and seal with Strongcoat Clear. Can be made anti-slip with the addition of Virtus Anti -Slip Aggregate scattered into the first coat of wet resin.

Suitable Surfaces

Concrete, metal, polymer modified cementitious screeds.

Usage: Indoor (some colour change would occur if used outdoors)

Resistant to: A wide range of acids and other chemicals.

Coverage: 20 square metres per 5kg

Coats Required: Two coats are usually required

Time In-between Coats : 16-36 hours between coats

Drying Time: Normally 8 - 24 hours at 20oc for foot traffic and 48 hours for vehicular traffic.

Pack Sizes: 5kg, 10kg or 15kg comprising a tin of resin and a tin of hardener.

Cleaning: Hot water jet washing, detergents and mechanical scrubber dryers.

Thickness: Approx 0.5 mm (from 2 coats).  Can be built up to a maximum of 1 mm thickness from the application of multiple coats.

Primer: A primer is not normally required.  However, on weak or porous concrete it is advisable to prime with Flowprime SF.  For floors suffering from oil contamination, where oil has penetrated the slab, it is available to prime with Flowprime OCS.   For floors where there is no damp proof membrane in the construction of the floor or if the concrete is new and has not had time to dry out thoroughly, it is advisable to use Flowprime DPM.

Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be treated must be clean, sound, free from oil or other contaminants, flaky paints, laitance and dust.  Smooth and dense surfaces must be mechanically abraded to provide a key.  Please read our Surface Preparation Datasheet.

Fast Cure

Important:
 
All published data sheets for Virtus products quote cure characteristics for the respective standard cure systems.
 
As a general rule, these provide hard cure (light traffic) times between 10 and 16 hours at 20°C with usable life times of 40-60 mins, these being acceptable for most situations. Time limitations may necessitate a faster initial cure time (working between shifts or close down periods) in which instances the use of a Fast Cure hardener can be employed within most of the standard Virtus floor product range. 
 
On average, this has the effect of reducing the hard cure time by 1/3 but also reducing the usable life by 1/2.
 
Example: 
 
Strongcoat
Hard cure time @ 20°C - 16 hrs
Usable life @ 20°C - 30-40 mins
 
Strongcoat Fast Cure
Hard cure time @ 20°C - 11 hrs
Usable life @ 20°C - 20 mins
