Strongcoat ID is a two-component virtually solvent free epoxy floor coating offering excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. Strongcoat provides a tough, hard wearing coating for medium duty traffic giving high film build and wear resistance.

Typical Installations

Primarily used as a sealcoat for broadcast systems such as intermediate car park decks, or on its own as an intermediate car park decking coating system. Strongcoat ID is suitable for regular foot traffic, light duty fork lift truck traffic and occasional hard plastic-wheeled trolleys.

Appearance

Gloss finish in a range of attractive colours. Can have a textured finish with the addition of Anti-slip Aggregate.

Pack Size

5, 10 and 15 kg units.

Suitable Substrates

Concrete and polymer modified cementitious screeds.

Components

Each unit of Strongcoat ID comprises of: one part Resin and one part Hardener. Anti-slip Additive is optional for areas requiring non-slip finish.

Thickness

Approximately 400 microns (0.4mm) from two coats. Can be built up to 1mm thickness.

Cure Schedule at 20 ºC*

  • Working life of full packs - 25 minutes
  • Over coating time 16 - 36 hours
  • Cure time to pedestrian traffic - 24 hours
  • Full chemical resistance - 7 days

* Usable working life of material following mixing and immediate spreading as per the application instructions.The floor should be protected from contact with water for at least 7 days. These cure times are approximate and given as a guide only. These times can vary due to prevailing site conditions. At lower temperatures curing times will be extended. If the over coating interval of 36 hours is extended, the first coat should be abraded to ensure inter-coat adhesion.

Priming

Strongcoat ID does not normally require a primer on dry substrates.

When treating extremely porous or damp concrete, prime as follows:

Substrate relative humidity <75%: Flowprime SF (Weak or porous)
Substrate relative humidity >75%: Flowprime DPM (’green’ concrete)


Application Conditions:

Strongcoat ID is a relatively viscous coating. Do not apply outside of the range 10 °C to 25 °C. Localised heating or cooling equipment may be required outside this range to achieve ideal temperature conditions. To reduce the risk of “blooming” caused by condensation, the climate above the uncured floor should be maintained at least 3°C above the dew point for at least 48 hours after application.

Surface Preparation:

Concrete substrates must be a minimum of 28 days old, dry, clean and free of surface laitance and contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, poorly bonded coatings and surface treatments. Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. In coatings, there is a tendency for the finish to mirror imperfections in the substrate. Grinding, or light vacuum-contained shot- blasting is therefore preferred over planing for these systems.

Concrete must include a functional damp-proof membrane.

Priming:

Strongcoat ID does not normally require a primer on dry substrates. When treating extremely porous or damp concrete, prime as follows:
Substrate relative humidity <75%: Flowprime SF (Weak or porous)
Substrate relative humidity >75%: Flowprime DPM (’green’ concrete)

Mixing:

Materials should be stored at 15 ºC to 25 ºC for a minimum of 8 hours prior to use. 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 at least 3 minutes until homogeneous. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing vessel several times as unmixed material will result in uncured patches in the final finish.

Application:

Best results are obtained in warm conditions (minimum 15 ºC ). Apply with a medium pile simulated sheepskin roller working well into the surface taking care not to exceed the coverage rate. Edges and difficult to reach areas may be applied thinly by brush. An anti-slip finish may be achieved by fully sprinkling the first coat with kiln dried silica sand at 3 - 4 kg/m². Allow the first coat to fully cure (24 hours at 15 ºC or longer in colder temperatures) then remove all excess sand with a stiff broom and vacuum and apply a second coat to encapsulate the grains. Coverage rate will depend on surface profile but will be significantly greater than for the first coat. As a guide:
application measurement
Note: These coverage figures are approximate as silica sand grading can vary widely as can site conditions. If in doubt, order extra material to account for wastage or install a test area prior to starting works. The pendulum test values given above are derived from testing in a controlled laboratory environment and are given for guidance only. Results derived from testing field-applied samples may vary dependent upon site conditions and application technique. Slip resistance can reduce over time due to poor maintenance, general wear or surface contaminants. Good housekeeping practices should be observed.
