M-PRIME 100 – Low Viscosity Epoxy Concrete Primer
MaxPrime 100 -Epoxy concrete primer sealer, is a solvent-free clear epoxy primer, which provides outstanding penetration into concrete and other cementitious substrates and helps to consolidate weak surfaces.
Ideally used in conjunction with other MaxKote lining or coating systems
Once mixed the product is used for priming concrete floors, bunds and concrete structures with a moisture content below 8%.
- Easy application
- High penetration capabilities
- Solvent free
- Concrete structures
- Concrete storage tanks
- Bunds and containment areas
- Floor areas
- 100% Solids material
- Easy mix formulation
- Safe to use in a confined space
- No coating shrinkage or cracking
- Aids application on site
- Prepare the surface
- Mix the material
- Stripe coat all joints and seams
- Apply the primer at a target film thickness of 150 microns
- Allow for curing
Remove any contamination and lightly abrasive blast or scarify taking care not to expose the aggregate. Allow new concrete to cure for a minimum 21 days and remove any surface laitance before coating. Ensure the moisture content of the concrete is 8% or below. Suitable for application where the surface temperature is 5°C (40°F) or above
Mix the base component (amber liquid) with the activator component (amber liquid) in full units as supplied, ideally, use slow speed paddle mixer. For small quantities us a mixing ratio of:
2:1 By volume or 2.25:1 by weight
When mixing both materials, it is essential to have a uniform clear fluid, that is streak free. Once mixed, the material should be used within 40-45 minutes at 20°C.
To ensure best results use the mixed fluid as soon possible after mixing.
Application Base Coat
Mix and apply the material directly to the prepared surface, using a brush, roller or squeegee. Check the wet film thickness on a regular basis ensuring correct coating thickness of a minimum 150 microns.
When coating concrete, apply the mixed material onto the prepared surface by brush or roller.
Coverage will depend on porosity and roughness but as a guide a practical coverage rate of 3 – 4 sq metres per litre is typical for the first coat and 5.5 sq metres per litre for subsequent coats. For priming a single coat should be applied, for coating, two or more coats should be used
Usable life at 20°C
Minimum – as soon as it is touch dry.
Maximum – over-coating time 36 hours.
