Epoxy coating

An epoxy coating is a coating compound consisting of two distinct elements: an epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener (also known as a catalyst). When mixed, the resin and hardener engage in a chemical reaction that creates cross-linking of the elements as it cures. When the epoxy coating is fully cured, the resulting product is a durable, rigid plastic coating with numerous desirable mechanical properties.


1. Multi-layered smooth coating

  • Prepare the substrate as specified (we
    recommend shot-blasting or rough
    grinding with a diamond disk) and remove
    dust with a vacuum cleaner.
  • Apply Primer SN at a rate of 0.2 kg/m2 (if
    required).
  • When the primer has hardened apply the
    first coat of Mapefloor FC 200 ME by
    straight trowel or roller.
  • Apply finishing coat of Mapefloor FC 200 ME
    with a straight steel trowel down to a
    feather edge and then backroll crosswise
    with a short-piled roller or apply the mix
    directly on the surface with a
    medium-piled roller.

2. Multi-layered non-slip coating

  • Prepare the substrate as specified (we
    recommend shot-blasting or rough
    grinding with a diamond disk) and remove
    dust with a vacuum cleaner.
  • Apply Primer SN at a rate of 0.2 kg/m2 (if
    required).
  • When the primer has hardened pour
    Mapefloor FC 200 ME onto the floor and
    spread it out evenly with a straight trowel
    or roller.
  • Fully broadcast with Quartz 0.5. If a higher
    degree of non-slip finish is required, sand
    with a larger particle size may be used. In such cases the consumption rate of the next coat will be higher.
  • When the first coat of Mapefloor FC 200 ME
    has hardened remove any excess sand
    and remove the last grains of sand
    with an industrial-grade vacuum cleaner.
  • Apply the finishing coat of Mapefloor FC
    200 ME with a straight steel trowel down to
    a feather edge then backroll crosswise with
    a short-piled roller, or apply the mix directly
    on the surface with a medium-piled roller.
    Make sure the roller strokes criss-cross to
    get a better finish.
