epidermix 372 is used:
Any surface to be treated must be clean, sound and dry. It must be free of foreign matter such as oil, grease, paint, dust, debris of preparation and any other form of contamination. Smooth surfaces should be roughened by some appropriate method.
Preparation of speciﬁc surfaces:
No priming required.
Mixing ratio: Two base to one activator by volume. Carry out mixing on a ﬂat clean surface, such as a board or plate.
Set up carefully measured quantities (two volumes base and one volume activator) of each component, side by side on the mixing plate. Do not mix until application site operations are ready. Use separate tools to remove each component from its container thus preventing contamination. Mix the two components until a completely homogeneous material results with putty knives, paint scrapers or similar ﬂ at tools. The larger the volume of the mix the longer should the mixing time be. If a ﬁlled material is required, add the ﬁller only after complete mixing of the base and activator has been achieved. Remove mixed material to a clean surface and carry on mixing to ensure no unmixed material from the ﬁrst mixing area is incorporated in the ﬁnal product.
Note: This information makes no allowance for site wastage.
Maximum application rate:
As an adhesive: Use thinnest possible ﬁlm allowing for full wetting of adherents.
As a ﬁller: Up to 15 mm thickness.
As a grout: Do not grout unﬁlled epidermix 372 into a hole larger than 1.5 times bar diameter. When grouting with ﬁlled epidermix 372, the hole should be kept as small as possible.
Application by putty knife, trowel or mastic gun.
As an adhesive: Mixed material should be spread onto the face of one adherent, thickly enough to extrude when both faces are mated. Bonded mating faces must be kept under compression until the adhesive layer has set.
As a filler: Mixed material should be smoothed into place using a trowel or similar tool.
Tools, brushes and mixing equipment should be cleaned immediately after use and before material has set with abe® super brush cleaner followed by washing with soap and water.
If used as a ﬁller, an epoxy coating is required. Allow a minimum of 12 hours and a maximum of 48 hours before commencing with applying the epoxy coating.
90 ml, 500 ml, 1 L, 5 L containers.
