Preparation


For internal steel, wood, concrete and other absorbent mineral substrates which are dry, free of contamination, dust, efflorescence and have been properly prepared and primed. Compatibility with existing coatings should be confirmed by preparing and painting a test patch. Note: not suitable for applying over asphalt, bitumen, epoxy tar, alkyd, chlorinated rubber or vinyl based paints.

Floor Preparation

  • Substrates should be dust free and completely dry before coating. When painting concrete it is vital to ensure that the substrate is completely dry and free of laitance. If the concrete is loose, chipping or has concrete dust present, the coating will not perform properly unless all loose material and dust is removed and damaged areas are repaired
  • Power floated, shiny or unpainted non porous concrete floors should be thoroughly vacuum blast cleaned to a roughness profile of 30-50 microns, or acid etched using Bradite Acid Etch TA37, or primed using Bradite Floor Primer ES40
  • High pressure water cleaning should be utilised to remove all loose and flaking paint and contamination back to a sound substrate. Bradite TD39 Industrial Degreaser should be used if necessary to remove all grease and oil
  • Intact areas of existing coatings should be roughened by abrasive manual or disc rubbing and feathered back to a sound coating edge
  • Cracks and pits should be filled using a suitable screed or mortar before painting

Fibreglass Swimming Pool Preparation

  • High pressure water cleaning to remove all loose and flaking paint and contamination back to a sound substrate
  • Intact areas of existing coatings should be roughened by abrasive manual or disc rubbing and feathered back to a sound coating edge
  • Bare fibreglass surfaces should be sweep blasted, mechanical or manually abraded to provide a key. The roughened surface should then be rinsed with clean water and allowed to thoroughly dry before painting

Industrial Protective Coating Preparation

  • High pressure steam cleaning to remove all loose, flaking paint and contamination back to a sound surface
  • Bradite TD39 industrial strength detergent, washing and rinsing should be used with scrubbing to remove grease or oil
  • For new or total repair, steel should be blast cleaned to SIS Sa 21/2 minimum with a blast profile of 35-50 microns. (For maintenance repair, sweep blast or mechanically abrade existing coating to provide a key. Damaged or rusty areas should be blast cleaned to SIS Sa 21/2 or mechanically to SIS St 3 minimum)



Application


  • Application and use should always conform to the codes of practice described in BS 6150 and BS 5493
  • Applicable by brush, roller, conventional air spray or airless spray:
    • Brush and Roller - Supplied ready for use. Thin, if required, with 0 - 10% Bradite Thinner TE36. On smooth substrates, the use of a short pile roller is advised
    • Conventional Air Spraying - Thin with 10 - 25% Bradite Thinner TE36 as required, tip size - 2.0mm, tip pressure 60psi (0.4MPa) approximately
    • Airless Spraying - Thin with 0 - 20% Bradite Thinner TE36 as required, tip size - 18 thou (0.46mm) approximately, tip pressure - 2100 psi (15MPa) approximately
  • For application on concrete, wood or other absorbent substrates, the first coat should be thinned 10-20% with Bradite Thinner TE36 to allow penetration into the substrate. If Bradite Floor Primer ES40 has been used then the priming coat of Bradite Epoxy Coating Finish EC88 should be omitted
  • For application on fibreglass swimming pools, the first coat is thinned 20% with Bradite Thinner TE36 to allow for better wetting and adhesion to the substrate. For maintenance painting the 1st coat will be a touch up to bare areas only
  • For additional underrfoot traction, Bradite Low Slip Hard Aggregate LS30 should be added to the paint and mixed thoroughly just before use at a rate of 1 x 250ml LS30 tin (400g) per 5 litre of paint
  • Clean all equipment immediately after use with Bradite Thinner TE36 for best results



Limitations


  • This system is recommended for internal protection and decoration only
  • Epoxy systems will chalk on external exposure to sunlight, resulting in loss of gloss and colour fade
  • Not suitable for applying over asphalt, bitumen, epoxy tar, alkyd, chlorinated rubber or vinyl based paints
  • The end user and applicator must ensure that the finished floor is safe against slips in all likely usage conditions
  • Always refer to the Health and Safety sheet for the product before use, and observe the warning phrases on the label
