Antel SureDeck Flooring System is a 4 pack Epoxy Resin based material consisting of Epoxy Resin, Hardener and Graded Aggregates and fire retardant. Antel SureDeck Flooring System will provide a thin floor covering in situations where an anti-slip finish is required. Its formulation provides excellent workability, speed of laying, excellent adhesion coupled with high strength to resist lifting and cracking as a result of impact from abrasive or heavy objects.
1. As a high quality floor finish.
2. Gives anti-slip flooring
3. Gives Chemical Resistant flooring (specific)
20 kgs, 10 Kgs
Colour depends on aggregate used.
5. USAGE RATE
6. STORAGE/SHELF LIFE
Store in cool dry conditions in original containers. Protect from freezing. Keep out of reach of children.
12 months shelf life in sealed container.
7. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Surfaces must be dry and free from all forms of contamination. Remove all loose material by ‘grit blasting’ or at the very least by wire brushing.
A separate Data Sheet is available. Please read before use.
Apply a coat of Antel SureDeck Resin Primer to the prepared area by brush, roller or rubber trowel. Apply Suredeck Flooring System when primer is tacky.
Add the D pack to the A pack and mix well with drill and paddle.Then add the B pack to the A pack and continue mixing. Add the C pack aggregate into the mix in the bucket and continue to mix until uniform.
Note: further C pack aggregate addition is allowed if ambient temperatures lower the viscosity of the resin mix or if required to reduce flow.
The Epoxy Antel SureDeck Flooring System must be applied within 15 minutes of mixing. Apply using a notched trowel and finish with a spiked roller to produce a smooth flat surface (3 – 4 mm)
Pot life @ 25°C (160 g mix) = 20 minutes
Thin film set time @ 25°C = 12 Hours
@ 10°C = 24 Hours
Full Cure = 2 – 7 days at ambient temperature
12. OVER COATING WITH SEALER
Further protection can be obtained by using Antel SureDeck Sealer.
13. CLEANING TOOLS
Immediately after use tools should be cleaned using Antel Solvent.
14. TYPICAL PERFORMANCE PROPERTIES
14.1 Chemical Resistance
Complete chemical resistance over long periods for nearly all flooring systems can be an unobtainable goal and if obtained normally result in decreased performance in other areas such as colour formation and increased toxicity.
Here is a cross section of resistance figures for Antel Flooring Mortar.
5% Citric Acid = R 6 Months (1.9)
5% Acetic Acid = R 6 Months (6.9)
30% Nitric Acid = R 6 Months (4.5)
50% Phosphoric Acid = R 6 Months (19.0)
36% Hydrochloric Acid = R 6 Months (6.7)
75% Sulphuric Acid = LR 1 Week (Destroyed)
14.2 Other performance properties.
Compressive Strength = 76N/mm2
Tensile strength = 13N/mm2
Flexural Strength = 27N/mm2
Reagent (Organic Solvent)
R =Resistant to vehicular traffic
LR = Limited Resistance (Pedestrian Only)
Figures in parenthesis represent average % weight change over time period.
14.3 Abrasion Resistance
Coatings of floor systems should be resistant against daily wear and tear caused by frictional forces from foot traffic and cleaning. Load bearing properties and toughness are particularly important in flooring for vehicular usage in order for stress forces to be dissipated without chipping or cracking associated with poor abrasive resistance occurring.
10 x 10 x 0.4 cm cast sheets of unfilled binder were allowed to cure for 14 days at 25°C and determined for abrasive resistance under ASTM D 4060-90 using model 5130 Taber Abrader with a C5 -17 abrading wheel under 1 kg weight to replicate the pedestrian or vehicular traffic. Castings were subject to 1000 cycles with weight loss reported per 200 cycles. Results show improved performance with a weight loss of 17 mg compared with 23 mg for the industry standard flooring mortar.
14.4 Water Spot Resistance
A 200 m film was applied to a panel and cured at 10°C A saturated cotton ball was placed on the film following a 24 hour 48 hour 72 hour and 96 hour cure and left in place for a further 24 hours. After each period the film was examined for carbonation in the form of white spots. Results show excellent resistance to carbonation.
