Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

Vetorep ER450 comprises three components, a resin base, hardener, and filler pre-weighed to the correct proportions. Under no circumstances should part mixing be carried out.

Ensure that the bottom and sides of resin containers are thoroughly scraped; transfer the hardener container's entire contents into the base container. Using a mixing paddle attached to a heavy-duty slow speed electric drill, mix for approximately 2 minutes until obtaining a uniform consistency.

Transfer the resin mixture to a separate container or forced action pan mixer, add the Filler gradually and mix for a further 2 minutes or until the filler has thoroughly wetted out and uniform consistency is obtained.

Application

Apply Vetorep ER450 by first tamping, followed by trowelling using steel float.

Curing

Allow Vetorep ER450 to cure for 24 hours at 25°C before being subjected to foot traffic. At the same temperature, full mechanical and chemical properties are achieved after 7 days (please consult the Saveto Technical Department for curing times at other temperatures).

Cleaning

Remove Vetorep ER450 from tools, equipment, and mixers with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use.

 

Surface Preparation

Surface Preparation

The surface must be structurally sound, free from oil, grease, and other forms of contamination. Concrete should be surface dry and suitably prepared either by scabbling or grit blasting to remove any surface.

Limitation

Design Criteria

Vetorep ER450 shall be applied at a thickness between 30mm and 150mm at a maximum of 15m lengths in a single application.

Limitations

  • Vetorep ER450 should not be used when the temperature is below 5ºC and falling.
  • Do not mix part packs under any circumstances.
  • Do not thin components with solvent as this will prevent proper cure.
  • Do not expose the product exposed to moving water during curing.
