Parex High Build Protective Coating
Parex High Build Protective Coating is a two part solvent free epoxy resin product consisting of a pigmented base resin component plus a pale yellow hardener component. The colour coding enables homogeneous mixing to be easily achieved. The product is applied as a high build protective coating to steel, concrete and other construction materials. Applied coatings are resistant to mechanical damage, abrasion and will give protection against weathering and chemical attack. The product gives a high build coating in a single application which cures to hard semi-gloss finish within 24 hours.

Instructions For Use
All contact surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and provide a good mechanical key. For steel surfaces rust, millscale or any other impurities should be removed bringing the surface to a bright metal condition. For concrete surfaces remove all loose material, paint, plaster and oily deposits. For best results light grit blasting is recommended.
No special priming is required.
The Parex High Build Protective Coating base resin component is supplied in a container which is large enough to receive the hardener component and act as the mixing vessel. Pour the entire hardener component into the base container and mix using a slow speed high torque drill with a Mortar Stirrer. Mixing should be continued for two minutes to achieve a uniform consistency and colour.
Apply the High Build Protective Coating as a single thick coat using a stiff bristle brush. Do not attempt to brush out the applied material. The applied thickness of 300 microns may be monitored using a simple thickness gauge to check the application during the work.
All tools and equipment should be cleaned with Solvent. Hardened High Build Protective Coating may only be removed mechanically.
Parex High Build Protective Coating may be applied at temperatures between 10°C and 35°C. For applications outside this range contact the Technical Service Department.
