Application Information
Instructions for use

Design Criteria

Vetotop EC493 is designed to be a hard-wearing single coat application on cementitious or metal substrates. When used on metal substrates, it is recommended that the application takes place within 2 to 3 hours from substrate preparation to prevent early rust formation. The applied product will be resistant to water as well as a wide range of chemicals.

Mixing

Thoroughly stir the individual components of Vetotop EC493 before mixing the three. Pour the entire contents of the hardener container into the base container and mix the materials thoroughly for at least 3 minutes. The use of a heavy-duty slow speed, flameproof, or air-driven drill fitted with a mixing paddle is desirable.

Application

Apply the mixed Vetotop EC493 to the prepared surface using a brush or lambs-wool roller. Ensure that the area is completely coated and that the 'ponding' of the material does not occur.

Curing

The applied coating can receive foot traffic in 24 hours. However, allow it to cure for 7 days to achieve the full cure to receive vehicular traffic and its chemical resistance properties.

Cleaning

Remove Vetotop EC493 from tools and equipment with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use. Hardened material can only be removed mechanically.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc.

Remove laitance and weak surface layer using mechanical methods such as grinding or blasting to provide a sound, well-profiled surface. Fix all necessary repairs before application by using epoxy mortar from the Vetorep ER range.

New concrete floors shall be at least 28 days old with a moisture content of less than 5% (shall earlier application be required testing of substrate for moisture conditions shall be made).

Grit blast steel substrates to surface quality SA2½ (BS 4232:Second Quality); Apply within 2 to 4 hours after blasting.
