Technical Information
Product Description

Vetotop EL383 is a two-component solvent-free, conductive epoxy flooring system that consists of an insulating primer, self-adhesive conductive tape, conductive primer, and a conductive top layer with excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. Anti-static floors are required to control static electricity, such as in hospital operating rooms, cleaning rooms, and hazardous & chemical environments.

Advantages
  • Self-smoothening consistency
  • Protects sensitive electronic parts from the effects of static charges.
  • Prevent explosions due to sparks of accumulated static charges.
  • Excellent adhesion to concrete and cement screed substrates. 
  • Conductive-anti static floor overlay system.
  • High mechanical and anti-static properties.
  • Extremely resistant to various chemicals such as alkalis, diluted acids, brine, mineral oil, lubricants, and fuels.
  • Attractive, availability of a wide range of colors.
COMPLIANCE STANDARD
  • ASTM F150 
  • BS 2050
  • DIN 51953
  • DIN-EN:1081
Packaging & Coverage

Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

Vetotop EL383 is supplied in two pre-weighed packs (base and hardener), ready for immediate on-site use. Part mixing of these components is not acceptable and will affect both the finished floor's performance and appearance. Carry out the mixing 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. Mix the components in a suitably sized mixing vessel. Stir the base and hardener components individually, then empty the components into the mixing vessel scrapping the edges and mix for 2 minutes. Slowly Add the filler pack content and mix for a further 3 minutes until obtaining a completely homogeneous material.

Application

Ensure sufficient labor and materials to make the mixing and the subsequent application process a continuous one for any given, independent floor area. Once the components are mixed, use the material within its specified pot life. Pour the material onto the prepared and primed substrate as soon as mixing is complete. Spread it to a thickness of 1.5-2mm 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 product's setting.

Cleaning

Remove Vetoprime EP491, Vetoprime EP381, and Vetotop EL383 from tools and equipment with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use. Remove hardened material can only be removed mechanically.

Surface Preparation

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.

Materials should be pre-conditioned at 25°C to reduce the possibility of flash and slow setting.

Repair 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).

Priming

Prime the substrate with Vetoprime EP491 before the application of Vetotop EL393.

Mix Vetoprime EP491 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 Vetoprime EP381.

After Vetoprime EP491 dries, fix self-adhesive conductive tape over the primed surface.

Mix Vetoprime EP381 as per the above mixing instructions of Vetoprime EP491. Apply Vetoprime EP381 at a rate of 8-10m2/liter in a single coat.

Earthing

Consult Saveto technical representative for proper installation procedure as per the established norms and guidelines for optimum connectivity and results.

Limitation
  • Vetotop EL383 should not be applied on surfaces known to, or likely to suffer from, rising dampness, potential osmosis problems, or have a relative humidity greater than 75%.
  • In areas where the significant thermal shock is likely to occur, e.g., cold rooms, etc., please consult the local Saveto office.
  • Vetotop EL383 should not be applied to asphalt, weak concrete below 25 N/mm2 compressive strength, unmodified sand/cement screeds, PVC tiles, or sheet or substrates known to move substantially, e.g., steel walkways.
  • Vetotop EL383 should not be installed at temperatures below 15°C or above 35°C. If in doubt or for application outside these temperature limits, please consult your nearest Saveto office.
  • In common with all epoxy materials, some light shade changes may be experienced over the long term when placed in adverse exposure conditions. Any such change in shade is not regarded as being detrimental to performance.
Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetotop EL383, Vetoprime EP491, Vetoprime  EP381, and Vetonit Solvent XX400 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.
