Fontefloor EP 100

A two-component water-borne epoxy paint, that can be used for new, old and ealier painted concrete floors and walls. Tintable paint in many colors.


The paint is suitable for interior floorsThe paint is water-borne

Multi-purpose paint

Fontefloor EP 100 is recommended for moderate mechanical and chemical stress in industrial, workshop, storage facilities, as well as hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry for coating of floors. Fontefloor EP 100 is suitable for moist concrete as well.

M1-approved paint

The product has M1 Building material emission classification for indoor use, and emits extremely low levels of compounds into the environment.

Easy to use

Priming and painting cab be done with the same product. Easy to apply by roller.  Water is used for thinning and for cleaning of tools. 


Complete water-borne system for concrete floor

Now we are offering complete environmental and user-friendly Fontefloor EP coating system for concrete floors. A significant advantage of this system is that you need only one hardener or the same EP Hardener can be used for all Fontefloor EP products.


Replacing solvent-borne coatings with high-performance water-borne alternatives can offer many advantages:

  • Reduced solvent exposure and associated health risks
  • Fewer concerns with flammability and the impact on insurance costs
  • Easy soap-and-water clean-up
  • Less hazardous waste disposal and associated cost

Application instruction of Fontefloor EP water-borne coating system

Prime the surface with 20–40 % thinned Fontefloor EP Primer or 0-30 % thinned Fontefloor EP 100 epoxy paint.

Overcoating may be carried out 16-24 hour after priming by applying Fontefloor EP 100 thinned 0-30 % with water.

Topcoating with varnish is done with unthinned or 5-10% thinned Fontefloor EP Clear.

Anti-slipping performance of the varnish can be enhanced by adding Tikkurila anti-slip agent. Furthermore, design and mosaic floors can be created.


Fontefloor EP 100 is widely used for:

Coverage

Coverage on concrete floors is on the average:

 

Priming                                5–7 m2/l

Finishing                             7–10 m2/l

 

Practical coverage depends on the porosity and evenness of the substrate and on the application method.
Thinner Water
Mixing ratio Base 3 parts by volume 35V series
Hardener 1 part by volume 008 4571
Application method Apply with a rubber trowel and level with a roller.
Pot-life (+23°C) Approx. 50 min after mixing.
Drying time at 23°C and 50% relative air humidity

Dust dry after 6 hours

Recoatable after 16 hours

Fully cured after 7 days

 

Drying and recoating times are related to the film thickness, temperature, the relative humidity of the air and ventilation.
Solids volume approx. 58 %.
Density 1.3 kg / l (mixed).
Product code Base paint 35V-s. and hardener 008 4571

APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions The relative humidity of the concrete should not exceed 97%. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or coating should not fall below +15ºC during application or drying. Relative humidity of air should not exceed 80 %.
Preparation New concrete
Remove laitance by power grinding or hydrochloric acid etching. Choose the method best suited for the premises. After grinding remove dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner. Hydrochloric acid etching is carried out with diluted hydrochloric acid (1 part concentrated hydrochloric acid, 4 parts water). Rinse with plenty of water. Dry the floor.

Old concrete
Remove all grease, oil, chemicals and other impurities by MAALIPESU detergent. Remove old peeling paint layer by grinding. Clean out pot-holes removing all loose friable material. Open cracks with e.g. an abrasive tool. Remove loose material and dust.
Priming Prime with 25% thinned Fontefloor EP 100 epoxy paint. Add always the water needed to a ready mixture and stir thoroughly. Pour the mixture onto the floor, apply with a rubber trowel and level with a roller.
Patching Fill holes and cracks with a mixture of unthinned Fontefloor EP Primer and dry, clean sand. Mixing ratio e.g. 1 part by volume of Primer mixture and 1–2 parts by volume of sand of grain size 0.1–0.6 mm. Sand the patched areas before finishing.
Note! Concrete surface should always be primed before patching.
Finishing Finishing should be done not earlier than 16 hrs after the priming. If the primed surface is not overcoated within 48 hrs, it should be abraded. Thin the paint 25% with water. Pour the mixture onto the floor, apply with a rubber trowel and level with a roller.

The total dry film thickness of the paint film should be approx. 100µm applied in two layers.

For painting of walls thin Fontefloor EP 100 epoxy paint 5–10% with water. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.013" –0.017" and pressure 160–180 bar.
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. Mix the correct proportions of base and hardener thoroughly (3–5 minutes) by using a low speed industrial hand drill with a paddle. Insufficient mixing or incorrect mixing ratio will result in uneven drying of the surface, weaken the properties of the coating and risk the success of the application.
Cleaning of tools Equipment should be cleaned immediately after use before the paint has dried.
