Coverage


  • A 5kg pack is sufficient to prime 25m² of surface. (15kg pack pro rata)



Surface Preparation


  • Surfaces should be sound, clean and free from standing water, laitance, oil, grease, and other contaminants
  • New concrete should be allowed to cure for a minimum of 21 days
  • Floors should be mechanically abraded, scarified, grit blasted or acid etched where any subsequent coating is to be applied over the 401 WG Epoxy Floor Primer

Note: For steel work a coat of 404 Epoxy Metal Primer is recommended as a primer instead of 401 WG Epoxy Floor Primer.

Note: Substrates with high moisture content or oil contamination can still be coated in most instances by the inclusion of one of our specialist primers. Please see 402 Damp Proof Coating and 403 Oil Tolerant Primer for full details.



Mixing:

  • 401 WG Epoxy Floor Primer is supplied in pre-weighed containers ready for mixing
  • Pour the contents of the base container into the curing agent container and thoroughly mix, preferably by mechanical means until a uniform consistency is achieved
  • A low speed drill with paddle attachment is recommended for mixing operations



Mixing Ratio:

  • By Volume - 2.2 Base : 1 Curing Agent
  • By Weight - 100 Base : 42.9 Curing Agent



Application


  • Apply by brush or roller at a nominal rate of 5m² per kg
  • As a sealer or clear coating, a second coat should be applied after a minimum of 2 hours, and before a maximum of 48 hours
  • As a primer, overcoating may be commenced as soon as the initial milky appearance has cleared or within 24 hours at 20°C
  • Ensure good ventilation during application



Cleaning


  • Clean equipment with 109 Tool Cleaner or a blend of 109 Tool Cleaner and water, immediately after use



Curing
