Static Dissipating High Build Epoxy

Mixing and Application Instructions (1833C)

Product Storage
THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOR A CONDUCTIVE COATING SYSTEM. THIS SYSTEM IS NOT INTENDED FOR AREAS EXPOSED TO EXPLOSIVE MEDIA SUCH AS AMMUNITION PLANTS. THIS MATERIAL IS PROVIDED AS A STATIC DISSIPATIVE COATING. REVIEW THE DATA ON THE FRONT SIDE OF THIS TECHNICAL DATA UNDER ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE FOR TESTING RESULTS. REVIEW YOUR ELECTRICAL RESISTANTCE REQUIREMENTS BEFORE INSTALLING THIS PRODUCT. DO NOT USE WAXES UNLESS THEY ARE SPECIFICALLY FORMULATED AND RECOMMENDED FOR ANTI STATIC APPLICATIONS. ALWAYS APPLY TEST PATCHES OF YOUR SELECTION TO CHECK CONDUCTIVITY PRIOR TO APPLICATION AND TO BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE PRODUCTS APPLICATION PROCEDURE. <br> Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using.
Surface Preparation
Surface preparation will vary according to the type of complete system to be applied. For a complete system build higher than 10 mils dry, we recommend a fine brush blast (shot blast). All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. A test should be made to determine that the concrete is dry; this can be done by placing a 4'x4' plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate is dry enough to start coating.
Product Mixings
Mix two parts A to one part B by volume [(10.9# part A) to (5.0# part B)]. This product should be mixed with a standard type paint shaker prior to combining the two components. Weight mix ratios will be more accurate than volume mix ratios if breaking down the premeasured kits. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. Improper mixing may result in product failure. Apply only over concrete. Do not apply over other coatings not specifically recommended. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Any compacted settlement in the bottom of containers must be thoroughly mixed into the liquid before using. Suitable mixing equipment may be necessary to remix in settled metallic pigment.
Product Priming
Apply an appropriate conductive primer before applying the 1833C. See front side of the technical data for primer selection. Review the technical data sheet for the primer selection used. The primer is best earthed with strips of copper about 20 centimeters long, which are anchored in the subfloor and connected to a water pipe or neutral conductor in the electric wiring system. Two earthing points normally suffice for a single room. One earth per 200 sq. meters of floor space is the general rule for large areas. After the substrate is earthed, Apply the primer.
Product Application
This product is intended for use by professional installers that have used this type of product before. The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller to any suitable conductive primer. If conditions (weather, temperature, air movement, high humidity etc.) do not facilitate complete air release, use an air release roller tool prior to the coating tacking off. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. Allow time for the primer to cure; see front side under LIMITATIONS for testing procedures. Before coating, check the primer to insure no epoxy blushes were developed (a whitish, greasy film or deglossing) and remove if present. Apply the 1833C according to the technical data specifications. Be sure to apply the product at the specified coverage rate or recommended thickness only. This product has a short pot life and detail should be given to trimming and tie-ins to apply material wet on wet to avoid lap marks and tie-in discolorations. Make sure that when applying to over-roll the area well to make sure the primer is thoroughly wetted out to avoid primer spots showing through the coating.
Recoating or Topcoating
This product is intended for use by professional installers that have used this type of product before. The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller to any suitable conductive primer.
