Flowrend LW is a lightweight epoxy mortar which is readily applied to vertical surfaces. The high resin content of Flowrend LW permits the application of large volumes of the mortar without the need for stress release joints in areas such as continuous coving, gulleys and structural repairs to concrete. The lightweight nature of the mortar enables the formation of coving and wall rendering without the need for shuttering. Flowrend LW is used in conjunction with Virtus resin flooring systems to produce a totally seamless “box” finish in high hygiene and decontamination areas. Flowrend LW is ideal for coving, plinths and bases, drain linings and bunds.

Appearance

Lightly textured coloured finish.

Surface Preparation

Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. Substrates should be clean, dry, sound and free of surface laitance.

Primer

Flowrend LW should be applied into tacky Flowprime TC (typically 45 - 60 minutes after application). If prior to the application of Flowrend LW, there are dry patches, a further primer coat is required. If the primer has been left to cure for >48 hours then the primer surface should be mechanically abraded and the area re-primed.

Sealing

Due to the dry nature required of rendering products, Flowrend LW shows a lower colour strength than flooring materials and colour density may vary throughout an installation. Where a closer colour match is required or where Flowrend LW requires sealing, for example, in wet areas or where chemical spillages are likely, Strongcoat V should be applied within 24 hours of application.

Coverage

Approximately 1.47 kg/m² is required per 1 mm thickness. For example, as a wall render at 4 mm thickness, 5.88kg/m² is required plus wastage. Coving requires an additional product to infill the radius, the exact quantity depending on the coving size.

Cleaning

Regular cleaning is essential to enhance and maintain the life expectancy and appearance of the product. Flowrend LW can be easily cleaned using industry standard cleaning chemicals and techniques, especially where sealed using Strongcoat V.

Thickness

Typically 2 - 2.5 mm

Application Conditions:

Ideal ambient and substrate temperature range is 15 - 25 ºC. Localised heating or cooling equipment may be required outside this range to achieve ideal temperature conditions. The aggregate can be stored in a cool area (or warm area in the case of low ambient temperature) in order to control product temperature and working life. The substrate and uncured floor must be kept at least 3 ºC above the dew point to reduce the risk of condensation or blooming on the surface, from before priming to at least 48 hours after application.

Surface Preparation:

Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. Substrates should be clean, dry, sound and free of surface laitance. See the Virtus Guide to Surface Preparation for further information.

Priming:

Flowrend LW should be applied into tacky Flowprime TC (typically 45 - 60 minutes after application). If, prior to application of Flowrend LW, there are dry patches, a further primer coat is required. If the primer has been left to cure for >48 hours then the primer surface should be mechanically abraded and the area re-primed.

CMixing & Application

Prior to mixing, the temperature of the three components must be between 15 and 25 ºC. Pre-mix the coloured resin component before use. Add the hardener component to the coloured resin component and mix using a low speed electric mixer (200 - 500 rpm) for 1 - 2 minutes until homogeneous. Decant the mixture into a rotary drum mixer and add the aggregate component in stages, mixing for a minimum of 3 minutes until a uniform coloured, lump-free mix is obtained.

Apply the mixture immediately onto pre-primed areas using a coving trowel to form skirting if required. Avoid excessive tooling which may lead to ‘trowel burn’.

Sealing

Due to the dry nature required of rendering products, Flowrend LW shows a lower colour strength than flooring materials and colour density may vary throughout an installation. Where a closer colour match is required or where Flowrend LW requires sealing, for example, in wet areas or where chemical spillages are likely, Strongcoat V should be applied within 24 hours of application.
