Technical Information
Product Description

Vetotop EL499 is a multi-component high-performance self smoothening epoxy flooring system that flows in a honey-like manner to self smoothen to a perfect level. Once cured, the product has excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. Vetotop EC499 provides an attractive, hard-wearing, and easily cleanable floor finish. Its use on floors will enhance the lighting in the environment due to the product's reflective properties.

Advantages
  • One product applied at 2-4mm without changing packaging size or filler.
  • Fast, easy application.
  • High abrasion and chemical resistance.
  • Low maintenance costs.
  • Hygienic, impervious, and easy to clean.
  • Available in 8 standard colors with the possibility of custom RAL colors.
  • High bond, stronger than the concrete cohesive strength.
COMPLIANCE STANDARD

BS EN476:2009 as class 1 in flame spread.

Design Criteria

Vetotop EL499 is designed to be a hard-wearing self smoothening single pour application on cementitious or metal substrates at thicknesses between 2 to 4mm. The applied product will be resistant to water as well as a wide range of chemicals.

Priming

All surfaces receiving Vetotop EL499 should be primed with Vetoprime EP491, designed for maximum absorption and adhesion to concrete substrates. Add the entire content of the hardener tin to the base tin and mix the two primer components thoroughly for at least 2 minutes - only mix full packs. Once mixed, apply the primer immediately to the prepared substrate using stiff brushes and/or rollers. The primer should be well ‘scrubbed’ into the substrate to ensure full coverage, take care to avoid over-application or ‘ponding.’ Allow the primer to dry before proceeding to the next stage, do not proceed whilst the primer is ‘tacky’ as this will lead to unsightly marks in the finished surface. Porous substrates may require a second primer coat - when the first coat is directly absorbed into the substrate - but observe minimum over-coating times.

Mixing

Vetotop EL499 is supplied in three pre-weighed packs (base, hardener, and aggregate), ready for immediate on-site use. Part mixing of these components is not acceptable and will affect both the performance and appearance of the finished floor. Mixing should be carried out using either a forced action mixer; or a heavy-duty mobile mixer fitted with a jiffy-type mixing paddle. All such equipment should be of a type and capacity approved by Saveto. The components should be mixed in a suitably sized mixing vessel. Stir the base and hardener components individually, then empty them into the mixing vessel scrapping the edges and mix for 2 minutes. The contents of the graded aggregate pack should be slowly added and mixing carried out for a further 3 minutes until a completely homogeneous material is obtained.

Application

Ensure sufficient labor and materials to make the mixing and subsequent application process a continuous one for any given, independent floor area. Once mixed, use the material within its specified pot life. Pour the material should onto the prepared and primed substrate as soon as mixing is complete. Spread it to the required thickness using a notched trowel or a gauged spreader, taking care not to overwork the resin, spreading evenly and slowly. After laying, roll the material immediately, using a spiked nylon roller to remove slight trowel marks and assist air release. Use a ‘back and forth’ technique along the same path for rolling. An overlap of 50% with adjacent paths is recommended. Further light rolling may be required to remove surface imperfections or for subsequent release of trapped air but should be before the setting of the product.

Floor Joints

Follow all existing expansion or movement joints through the new floor surface.

Cleaning

Remove Vetoprime EP491 and Vetotop EL499 tools and equipment with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use. Remove hardened material mechanically.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc. Laitance and weak surface layer shall be removed using mechanical methods such as grinding or blasting to provide a sound, well-profiled surface. Repair all necessary areas 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).
