Product Description

Vetotop EC698 is a two-component high-performance solvent-free epoxy coating system designed for the protection of concrete floors. Once cured, the product has excellent abrasion and good chemical resistance. Vetotop EC698 provides an attractive, hard-wearing, and easily cleanable floor finish.

Advantages
  • High abrasion and impact resistance.
  • Ease of application.
  • High chemical resistance.
  • Low maintenance costs.
  • Hygienic, impervious, and easily cleanable.
  • A slip-resistant finish.
  • Available in 8 standard colors with the possibility of custom RAL colors.
  • High bond, stronger than concrete cohesive strength.
  • Economic installation.
COMPLIANCE STANDARD

BS EN476:2009 as class 1 in flame spread

Packaging & Coverage

- Vetotop EC698 is supplied in 4 & 15 Liters Kit. Theoretical Coverage 5 m2/Liter @ 200 µm

- Vetoprime EP691 is supplied in a 4 Liters kit. Theoretical Coverage 8 m2/Liter

- Vetoprime EP490  is supplied in a 4 Liters kit - Theoretical Coverage 8 m2/Liter

In the case of Antislip aggregates' use, the topcoat's consumption values will increase by 15 to 20%. Antislip aggregate consumption:

- Vetotop EC698 with Antislip Aggregates Texture Fine, coverage 1.5 - 3.5 m2/Kg @ Thickness 0.75 - 1.5 mm

- Vetotop EC698 with Antislip Aggregates Texture Medium, coverage 1.2 - 3.0 m2/Kg @ Thickness 1.5 - 2.0 mm

- Vetotop EC698 with Antislip Aggregates Texture Coarse , coverage 1.0 - 3.0 m2/Kg @ Thickness 2.0 - 2.5 mm

Stated consumption data are for general guidance. Actual consumption depends on the nature of substrate, method of application, and wastage.

Design Criteria

Vetotop EC698 is designed to be a hard-wearing two-coat application on cementitious substrates. The applied product will be resistant to water as well as a wide range of chemicals.

Priming

If the concrete surface is porous, or the w/c ratio is >0.5, it is recommended to use Vetoprime EP691 as a film-forming primer or EP490 as a penetrating primer for porous substrates.

Vetoprime EP691 should be mixed in the proportions supplied. Add the entire contents of the hardener container to the base container. When thoroughly mixed, preferably using a slow speed mixer, apply the primer in a thin, continuous film using rollers or stiff brushes. Work the primer well into the concrete’s surface, taking care to avoid ponding or over application. Leave the primer to achieve a tack-free condition before applying the topcoat.

Mixing Vetotop EC698

In a separate mixing vessel, use a slow speed mixer to mix the base, hardener for 3 minutes. Mix these components in the quantities supplied, ensuring to scrape all containers sides. Dilution up to 8% using Vetonit Solvent XX300 to aid application is permitted.

Application

The application and cure temperature must be above 15°C. Lay the first coat of Vetotop EC698 using a short-haired lamb wool roller or gauged squeegee to achieve a continuous coating. Ensure removing loose hairs on the roller before use. Apply a minimum film thickness of 150 microns per coat for the flooring system (this can be increased where specifications demand). Apply the topcoat in the same manner within 8 to 24 hours of the application of the topcoat.

Antislip Aggregates

If the option of using Vetograin antislip aggregates is chosen, dress the base coat with the chosen antislip aggregates as soon as possible after laying the base coat. The recommended procedure is to blind the base coat completely, i.e., apply excess dressing aggregate to obliterate the base coating.

Alternatively, the antislip silica particles can be broadcast in a light random dressing to provide a less dense finish, or the product can be used to obtain a smooth finish by omitting the antislip aggregates.

When the base coat reaches the initial cure (after 12 hours at 20°C or 5 hours at 35°C), vacuum the excess aggregate to clean the surface.

Apply the topcoat with a short-haired roller or airless spray equipment. Take care to ensure achieving a continuous film and to seal the rough surface caused by the aggregate completely. Applying the resin base coat is necessary to apply this topcoat within 36 hours at 20°C (15 hours at 35°C).

Expansion Joints

Expansion joints in the existing substrate must be retained and continued through the Vetotop EC698 topping. Saveto has a range of joint sealants specifically designed for flooring (see Vetoflex PS781, Vetoflex PS782, and Vetoflex PS786 product technical datasheets).

Cleaning

Clean tools and equipment with Vetonit Solvent XX300 immediately after use.

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 the 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% (If required and earlier application, test the substrate moisture condition).

Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetotop EC698, Vetoprime EP691, Vetoprime EP490, and Vetonit Solvent XX300 should not contact skin and eyes or be swallowed. 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, use suitable respiratory protective equipment.

The use of barrier cream provides additional skin protection. In case of skin contact, rinse with plenty of clean water, then cleans 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.

Vetoprime EP490 and Vetonit Solvent XX300 are flammable. Keep away from sources of ignition. No Smoking. In the event of a fire, extinguish with CO2 or foam.
