FlowPatch Repair Deep Fill Grade
Vendor: Virtus Resins
FlowPatch Repair Deep Fill Grade is a three-component solvent free high strength epoxy repair mortar. The aggregate grading allows easy application with hand tools from 50 mm down to approximately 10 mm providing a well compacted impermeable repair with excellent resistance to abrasion, chemical attack and virtually no shrinkage.
Smooth impervious surface with a grey ‘concrete’ colour.
Repairs to damaged concrete floors, pre-cast concrete units, spalled joint arises, kerbstones, damaged steps etc. Can be also be used to form falls.
- High strength for heavy wear areas
- Easily applied using hand tools
- Fast curing
- Impermeable and non-dusting
- Solvent free
- Good chemical resistance
18 kg comprising a resin, hardener and filler component.
Cure Schedule @ 20°C
Working life of full packs = 30 minutes*
Foot traffic = 4 hours
Heavy duty traffic = 6 hours.
Full mechanical and chemical cure = 7 days.
* Usable working life of material following mixing and immediate spreading as per the application instructions. Using material after working life has expired will result in trowlling becoming difficult and a reduction in adhesion. These times can vary due to prevailing site conditions. And are given as a guide only. At lower temperatures curing times will be extended and below 10 °C curing will be extremely slow or may stop.
Coverage : Apply at approximately 2 kg/m2m per 1 mm thickness.
Materials should be kept dry and stored in a weatherproof building maintained at 15 °C to 25 °C on pallets and away from walls. Consignments should be used in order of batch number. Protect from frost.
Shelf Life *
12 months if stored in accordance with the above recommendations.
FlowPatch Repair Deep Fill Grade consists of three pre-proportioned components. Under no circumstances should part mixing of units be carried out. Materials should be stored at 15 ºC to 25 ºC for a minimum of 8 hours prior to use.
Thoroughly re-mix the resin until consistent colour and pour the entire contents of the resin and hardener components into a suitable mixing vessel taking care to ensure that the bottom and sides of the containers are thoroughly scraped. Mix using a mortar stirrer fitted to a high torque, low speed electric mixer (200 - 500 rpm) until homogeneous. Slowly add the filler component whilst mixing. When all the filler has been added, mix for a further 1 minute or until homogeneous. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the vessel several times as unmixed material will result in uncured patches in the final repair. Alternatively, a forced action mixer may be used i.e. Creteangle or Mixal. Never mix by hand.
Best results are obtained in warm conditions (minimum 10 °C). Place the mixed material onto the primed surface using a clean trowel ensuring that the mortar is worked well into the surface, edges and cracks. A smooth surface finish can be achieved using a steel float moistened with a very small amount of Flowsolve. The mortar should be applied in layers from 10 mm up to 50. For thicker sections, the surface of the under-layer should be roughened or scored to aid adhesion. Subsequent primer and mortar layers can be applied once the under-layer is firm enough to take the working pressure without distorting (approximately 6 hours @ 20°C).
Limitations: Do not proceed with application if atmospheric relative humidity is, or is anticipated to be >75% or if the surface temperature is <3 °C above the dew point. Application should not commence when the substrate temperature or the ambient temperature is, or is anticipated to be <10 °C during the application or within the curing period. The manufacture of FlowPatch Repair Fine Fill Grade is a batch process and despite close manufacturing tolerances, minor variations in shade may occur between batches.
