|Description||A high build solvent-free, chemically resistant floor coating, available in either clear or an attractive range of colors, designed to seal, dustproof and protect concrete floors and other surfaces against the ingress of dirt, oil, grease and a wide variety of chemicals.|
|Uses||The low odor and absence of solvent makes Ozone Epocoat SF ideal for use in laboratories breweries,
bakeries, public areas, and food preparation areas, where non-tainting is essential. Ozone Epocoat SF
may also be used as a sealer on resin-based screeds where cleanliness is important or where particularly
wet conditions are encountered.
|Advantages||Ozone Epocoat SF is used to provide a protective coating to industrial & warehouse floors subject to light
traffic, an oil-resistant coating for bunded areas, a wall & floor coating in the food & other industries
requiring high hygiene standards, and a protective coating in sewerage treatment plants.Improves the working environment.
Suitable for use in areas where solvents are undesirable.
Hardwearing, durable and long-lasting.
Easily and quickly applied by unskilled labor.
Easily cleaned hence reducing maintenance costs.
Can be applied to damp substrates.
It can be used as a curing agent.
Good chemical resistance.
|Chemical Resistance||O Performance of Ozone Epocoat SF tested by immersion at 20 C against a range of aggressive chemicals.
It should be noted that the ability of Ozone Epocoat SF to resist attack is dependent on the temperature and concentration of the chemicals. If in doubt contact the Ozone technical department.
|Packaging||1kg and 2.5kg units|
|Storage||Store in dry and cool place below 35 C. Protect from direct sunlight.|
|Shelf life||12 months if stored properly in original unopened packaging.|
|Instruction for use||Surface preparation: The surface to be treated should be dry, sound and free from loose materials. New concrete should be at
least 28 days cured and have a moisture content of less than 5%. Damaged or worn areas should be repaired using Ozone Epo FairCrete. Any laitance should be removed by physical methods or by acid etching. If the strength or the surface stability of the concrete base be in doubt, then we recommend a trial patch of Ozone Epocoat SF is applied to assess its suitability. On highly polished/power floated floors,
mechanical preparation or acid etching will be necessary.
Priming: Concrete should be primed with Ozone Epoprime. Ozone Epoprime should be mixed in the proportions supplied. Add the entire contents of the hardener can to the base can. When thoroughly mixed, preferably using a slow speed drill and paddle, the primer should be applied in a thin continuous film, using rollers or stiff brushes. Work the primer well into the surface of the concrete taking care to avoid
ponding or over application. The primer should be left to achieve a tack-free condition before applying the topcoat. A second coat of primer may be required if the substrate is excessively porous.
Mixing: The base and hardener components of Ozone Epocoat SF should be thoroughly stirred before the two are mixed. The entire contents of the hardener container should be poured into the base container and the two materials mixed thoroughly at least 3 minutes. The use of a heavy-duty slow speed, flameproof or air driven drill fitted with a Mixing Paddle is desirable. Mix these components in the
quantities supplied taking care to ensure all containers are scraped clean.
Application: The first coat of Ozone Epocoat SF should be applied using a good quality medium-haired pile roller, suitable for epoxy application, or squeegee to achieve a continuous coating. Ensure that loose hairs on the roller are removed before use. A minimum film thickness of 200 microns should be applied. This can be increased where specifications demand. When the base coat has reached initial cure (12 hours @ 20°C or 5 hours at 35°C). The topcoat can be applied by medium-haired roller, at minimum film thickness of 200 microns. Care should be taken to ensure that a continuous film is achieved.

|Cleaning & Disposal||Ozone Epocoat should be removed from tools and equipment with Ozone Solvent immediately after use.
Hardened material can only be removed mechanically. Do not dispose of into water or soil but according
to local regulations.
|Precautions/Limitations||Ozone Epocoat SF should be removed from tools and equipment with Ozone Solvent after use. Hardened material can only be removed mechanically. Do not dispose of into water or soil but according to local regulations.|
|Health & safety||Ensure adequate ventilation and avoid inhalation of vapors. Some people are sensitive to resins, hardeners, and solvents. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, and eye protection. If working in confined areas, suitable respiratory protective equipment must be used. The use of barrier creams provide additional skin protection. In case of contact with skin, rinse with plenty of clean water, then cleanse with soap and water. Do not use solvent. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting.|
