SELF-SMOOTHING EPOXY POLYURETHANE FLOOR TOPPING
A specialist applied, self-leveling, epoxy resin floor finish combining outstanding wearing properties with chemical resistance and decorative properties. Ideally suited in areas where a seamless, joint free finish is required and maximum cleanliness is essential. Laboratories, clean rooms, and general light industry are just some of the environments that can benefit from this system.
Hard wearing - durable with low maintenance costs
Good abrasion resistance. Withstands foot and vehicular traffic
Resistant to a wide range of chemicals and liquids
Seamless - easily cleaned to maintain high standards of hygiene
Self-smoothing properties provide a flat high gloss finish
Available to any standard RAL Card upon request
It is essential that IF PUSL 10 D is applied to sound, clean and dry surfaces to ensure maximum adhesion.
NOTE: Thin coatings will reflect the surface texture of the substrates and as such high spots may lead to premature wear of the coating, thus surface preparation techniques should be chosen appropriately. The ideal substrate for application is a flat, lightly textured, clean concrete surface.
The concrete surface must be hard, sound and free of dust and other barrier materials such as paint, lime coatings, plaster, curing agents, laitance, adhesive residues etc., that will inhibit adhesion to the substrate.
Use a suitable degreaser to remove polish, wax, grease, oil and similar contaminating substances prior to mechanical preparation. Contaminated concrete surfaces should be mechanically prepared, either by scabbling, grinding or contained shot blasting equipment or similar, and be vacuumed clean prior to applying IF PUSL 10 D. Overwatered or otherwise weak concrete surfaces must also be suitably prepared down to sound, solid concrete by mechanical methods. Dust and other debris should be removed using vacuum equipment.
NOTE : Any joints or cracks in the concrete base where differential movement is anticipated e.g. movement joints, should be brought through to the finished surface. New concrete slabs must be allowed to cure for at least 14 days.
All areas to be treated with RIF PUSL 10 Dmust first be primed with CLI N18Solvent Free Epoxy Primer. One or more coats of primer may be required depending upon the condition and porosity of the concrete substrate. High porosity substrates may be revealed after preparation and will be evident by their rapid suction and absorption. If in doubt use two coats of CLI N18 Solvent Free Epoxy Primer. Poorly primed surfaces may lead to blistering or pin holing in the cured resin.
The individual contents of the IF PUSL 10 D should be thoroughly stirred before being mixed together. The entire contents of the Part B should be poured in to a larger mixing vessel to incorporate the Part A. Materials are mixed thoroughly with a spiral mixing paddle in a slow speed drill. The mixing of all the two should continue until a consistent homogenous mix is achieved. One or more packs may be mixed simultaneously to ensure a quick rate of installation.
NOTE : Once mixed, the IF PUSL 10 Dwill generate heat and lose working time if it is left in the mixing container or otherwise kept in bulk.
The mixed IF PUSL 10 D material should be applied to the prepared and primed surface without delay using a trowel or depth set rake to achieve the desired thickness. As soon as the IF PUSL 10 D has been laid and as work progresses, the surface should be gently rolled with a spiked roller in order to release any entrapped air from the mix also to blend out any trowel marks. The work area should be protected during the installation process and during the initial curing time to ensure that no debris can contaminate the surface of the resin, as this will lead to unwanted blemishes in the hardened, cured surface.
IF PUSL 10D should not be applied to floors that are known to have rising moisture or have relative humidity of greater than 75% at the time of application. These products should not be applied in temperatures less than 10ºC or where the ambient relative humidity is greater than 85%. Should it be determined that moisture is present in the concrete then the entire surface should be treated with CLI DPM Surface Damp Proof Membrane mixed and applied in accordance with the recommendations in the CLI product data sheet. Once the mixed material has exceeded its pot life, the viscosity and the characteristics of the product will change and any unused product should be discarded at this time. Do not steam clean or use hot water above 50ºC to wash the surface.
NOTE : All products are manufactured under strict Quality Assurance procedures, however it is recommended that where colour consistency is essential, wherever possible, products from one batch should be used.
IF PUSL 10 D can be removed from tools and equipment by using CLI Eco Sol 205 immediately after use. Any hardened material will need to be removed mechanically.

IF PUSL 10 D is resistant to a wide range of chemicals like Petrol, Engine oil, Brake fluid, Mineral spirit, Diesel, Mild acids, Detergents etc
STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE
IF PUSL 10 D has a shelf life of 12 months if kept in a dry, store between 5ºC and 30ºC in the original unopened containers. The product should be protected from frost, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat.
In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice and after contact with the skin wash immediately with plenty of soap and water (do not use solvents). Prolonged contact with the skin should be avoided, especially where the user has an allergic reaction to epoxide materials. Always wear gloves and eye/face protection is necessary. Observe personal hygiene, particularly washing the hands after work has been completed or at any interruption whilst work is in progress. Care should be taken when removing gloves to avoid contaminating the insides. In case of accidents seek medical advice.
DISPOSAL / SPILLAGE
Spillage of any of the component products should be absorbed onto sand or other inert material and transferred to a suitable disposable vessel. Disposal of such spillage or empty packaging should be in accordance with local waste disposal authority regulations.
