Clear Epoxy Resin Binder System, Solvent Free
flooring resin epoxy binder system is a solvent-free, clear, two-component, low viscosity epoxy resin system which is cycloaliphatic amine cured (clear light colour).
flooring resin is currently used as the preferred binder system in abecote® 400 hi-build; abeflo®; abescreed QC; abescreed SLC P epoxy primer (high mechanical shock areas for SL cementitios screeds).
Please refer to specific Technical data sheet for details.
Other uses include the following:
- Primer/pore sealer for suitably prepared cementitious substates for subsequent epoxy or PU coating/screed application.
- Clear sealed finish to diamond ground concrete.
- Fine sand bulked up for a scraper coat repair work prior to twin pack/two part decorative floor application finishes.
- Proven system
- Universal formulation
- Solvent free
- Reduced moisture and carbon dioxide sensitivity
- Cures well down to +10 °C
- Easily applied
- Good chemical resistance
- Less sensitive against humidity
- Low viscosity
The concrete substrate must be sound and of sufficient compressive strength (minimum 25 N/mm2) with a minimum pull off strength of 1.5 N/mm2.
Must be free from rising damp. Dry to a moisture content below 75% RH as per BS 8203; 1987.
All contamination must be removed to give a clean, dry and open textured surface.
Laitance and contamination to be removed by totally enclosed shot blasting, light scarification or diamond grinding. All residues must be removed including vacuum cleaning to provide a dry, dust-free, open textured surface. Porous floors (high air cavities) will need two coats of primer.

Kit components are pre-weighed for optimum performance.
Do not mix by hand. Pour activator into base and drain container thoroughly. Ensure that the materials are thoroughly mixed using a slow-speed industrial hand drill, Helical spinner or Jiffy mixer.
Refer to recommended specification.
Prevailing weather conditionsmust be taken into account otherwise surface defects can occur (see under “typical physical properties”).
2 m2/L per coat otherwise, refer to recommended specification.
flooring resin, a low viscosity epoxy resin binder, is supplied by a.b.e.®, installation to be carried out by a trained applicator.
Cleaning of Equipment
Use abe® super brush cleaner before setting. Rinse thoroughly under running water.
flooring resin should be applied at temperatures between 15 ºC and 35 ºC. Temperatures should not fall below 5 ºC during the first 24 hours after application.
Available in 1 ℓ, 5 ℓ, 6 ℓ and 15 ℓ kits.
Storage & Shelf Life
Stored unopened in dry conditions at 5 – 25 ºC, shelf life will be 12 months minimum. Do not expose to frost.
