Properties

abe Construction Chemicals epidermix 314 Properties

Mixing

epidermix 314 is a heavy paste to the extent that it can only be mixed by kneading with GLOVED HANDS.  Set up equal volumes of base and activator side by side on a clean board.  Do not take more than about 250 ml of each compound at one time.  Knead the two components together (like mixing bread dough) for at least five minutes.

Coverage

1 m2/L/1 mm thick.

Application

Mixed epidermix 314 should be pressed into place in the repair area, always using a GLOVED HAND. The viscosity of epidermix 314 is sufficient to hold its place in soffit repairs and on vertical faces. If the void is too big to fill in one placing, leave the contact surface rough to act as a key for subsequent placing once the first application has set.

A final smooth finish may be obtained by trowelling off the surface of the still uncured epidermix 314 with a water dampened steel trowel.

Cleaning

Use abe® super brush cleaner before material has dried/cured.

Protection on completion

Protect against traffic and spillage until cured.  Most epoxies chalk and degrade in extensive sunlight.

Packaging

epidermix 314 is supplied in 2 L and 4 L kits.
