Building material emission class M1

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 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. Choose the method best suited for the premises. Clean out pot-holes removing all loose friable material. Open cracks with e.g. an abrasive tool. Remove loose material and dust.
Priming Prime using 25% thinned Fontefloor EP 100, Fontefloor EP Primer or Temafloor 220W. Always add the water/thinner needed to a ready mixture and stir thoroughly. Pour the mixture onto the floor, apply with a rubber trowel and level with a roller.

If necessary, repeat priming to get a non-porous surface. A porous priming coat will result in holes and air bubbles in the finished coating.
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 Patch pot-holes and cracks with a mixture of unthinned Fontefloor EP Primer and dry, clean sand. Mixing ratio e.g. 1 part by volume of varnish mixture and 1–2 parts by volume of sand of grain size 0.1–0.6 mm. Sand the patched areas before overcoating, if necessary.

Note! Concrete surface should always be primed before patching.
Finishing Overcoating 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 and apply it with a trowel and level with a roller.

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

Note! Add the remaining mixture to the next batch of the product, do not scrape it out of the container onto the floor.

Applying on walls: 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.

Note! There is a natural tendency of epoxy coatings to chalk and discolor on exterior exposure
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. Mix the correct proportions of base and hardener thoroughly (approx. 3 minutes to get homogenous mixture) 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.
