The EPOXY PRIMER is a two-component VOC-free and 100% solids primer epoxy coating system. It offers a combination of long pot life/working time and fast curing. It has been formulated to obtain superior adhesion on concrete for high traffic applications. The EPOXY PRIMER formulation is based on a high-performance cycloaliphatic amine technology and has a very low viscosity and excellent early blush resistance.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Concrete should be clean, dry and free of grease, oil, paint, curing agents or any contaminants that may inhibit proper adhesion. Concrete should be cured at least 28 days before applying the coating system. If the concrete slab has been installed within 28 days, the LABPOX MVB moisture mitigation system can be considered. Proper testing procedures should be practiced with regards to soil acidity and moisture vapor transmission. Take a pH reading to ensure concrete is neutral (a reading between 5 and 9 is acceptable). Use a calcium chloride test to measure moisture vapor transmission. Readings of 3.5 lbs/1000 sq. ft. during a 24-hour period or less are acceptable for applying coatings. Floors with higher results can receive the LABPOX MVB moisture mitigation system. Surface must be shot blasted or prepared with an equivalent mechanical means in line with CSP-2 or more. Ensure the surface is free of contaminants, and the pores are open to allow the product to penetrate.
MIXING: Before final mixing, pre-mix part A individually at a low speed. Then, mix two parts of A and one part of B together at low speed in a separate container. The mixing container must be clean and free of any outside particle. Mix thoroughly for a minimum of three minutes, until a completely homogeneous mixture is obtained. Use a low speed drill (300-450 rpm) to minimize the entrapment of air. It is recommended to activate the mixer in the reverse mode after 90 seconds for the liquid to mix from the bottom of the mixing can to the top. Make sure to scrape sides and bottom of mixing container so no unmixed material remains. Mix only the necessary quantity to be used according to the specific pot life / working time.
APPLICATION: Apply only when air and slab temperature is between 60° AND 86° and the relative humidity of less than 85%. If a heated floor is installed, ensure that the system is turned off during application and for the full duration of the cure. The product has been designed to adhere to concrete surfaces. It is recommended to use only the quantity required to seal the concrete prior to applying an epoxy base and topcoat (LABPOX 30 or LABPOX 40 UV). Apply with a squeegee in a thin coat without back rolling to seal the surface properly. This will also help reduce the creation of pin holes. If there is a significant presence of pinholes due to the porosity of the concrete, sand and plug the pinholes with epoxy gel. A thickness of 4-6 mils is recommended for the EPOXY PRIMER. Coverage rates can vary significantly depending on the concrete’s porosity.
RECOAT: Labsurface’s top coat epoxies will bind to the EPOXY PRIMER without sanding if installed within 24 hours. Beyond 24 hours, the floor surface should be sanded/abraded until a uniform dullness is achieved. There should be no gloss on the prior coating after vacuuming and before applying the next coat.
LIMITATIONS: Requires a dry substrate. Moisture content of the substrate must be below 4% before applying the product. This product should not be applied to concrete substrates that show high levels of moisture/humidity unless a moisture a LABPOX MVB moisture mitigation system is used. The LABTEC Universal Pigment Pods are not compatible with the EPOXY PRIMER. Although this product may be applied in a wide range of thickness, limitations may apply when taking into consideration curing time. Everything else being equal, thicker is the film, quicker is the curing time. Drying time will be faster in a hot environment. Conversely, the drying time will be longer in a cold environment and the appearance of the surface may be affected. Do not clean the finished surface during the week following installation. Keep the product stored at room temperature to ensure consistent results. Not suited for exterior applications.
