Flowcoat V Coloured is a two-component water dispersed epoxy coating for use on concrete and polymer modified cementitious screeds, cementitious renders, brickwork and block work. Flowcoat V is designed to provide a tough, hard wearing protective finish in a range of colours. Being water-based, Flowcoat V may also be applied to 7 day old ‘green’ concrete. Its easy to clean, silk finish makes the product ideal for industrial wall finishes in laboratories, farm buildings, warehousing, garages and other areas.
Semi-gloss / silk finish available in a wide range of colours.
The concrete substrate must be sound with a minimum compressive strength of 25 N/mm2and a minimum pull off strength of 1.5 N/mm2. The substrate must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, coatings and surface treatments, etc. Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. In coatings, there is a tendency for the finish to mirror imperfections in the substrate. Grinding, or light vacuum-contained shot-blasting is therefore preferred over planing for these systems. Percussive scabbling or acid etching is not recommended.
A minimum of two coats are required. Some substrates ,especially uneven surfaces will require additional coats depending on profile and porosity. Light or bright colours such as safety yellow or safety red may require additional coats to achieve full opacity. As a guide:
Porous or uneven substrates e.g. Brickwork, block work:
1st Coat diluted 5 - 10 % by volume: 7 - 12 m2/kg
1 or 2 final coats undiluted: 7 - 9 m2/kg
Smooth/dense surfaces e.g. Dense brickwork, steel trowelled renders:
1st Coat undiluted: 7 - 10 m2/kg
Final coat undiluted: 7 - 9 m2/kg
1st Coat diluted 10 - 20 % by volume: 8 - 10 m2/kg
1 or 2 final coats undiluted: 7 - 10 m2/kg
Regular cleaning is essential to enhance and maintain the life.
Approximately 70 to 90 microns per coat.
No primer required but an effective damp proof membrane should be in present in walls and floors.
