Epoxy, Epoxy Floorings

  1. 1. Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdEPOXY FLOORING & COATINGS
  2. 2. Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdUnderstanding about Epoxy Floor CoatingThere are different types of floor coatings, among them is the epoxy floor coatingwhich is widely used on: - Industrial floors - Pharmaceuticals - Warehouses - Food & Brewages - Residential Garage - Basement floors - Restaurants & even office facilities.The epoxy basically contains three components; - The resin component which is a light, odour free and colourless - The other component is the hardener which is usually dark in colour and has a strong smell - The filler component which is usually a of mixture of many chemicals blended together. With proper mixture and right amount, the combination will create a chemical reaction thereby producing a strong material guaranteed to last for a long time.USP: All other epoxy are brittle our is flexible Better Abrasion So because of brittleness every one is now moving towards PU
  3. 3. What is epoxy? Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdEpoxies are polymer materials that begin life as liquids and are converted to the solid polymersby a chemical reaction. An epoxy based polymer is mechanically strong, chemically resistant todegradation of the chemical elements in the solid form and highly adhesive during conversionfrom liquid to solid. There are a wide range of basic epoxy chemicals from which an epoxysystem can be formulated.Epoxies are known for their excellent adhesion, chemical and heat resistance, good to excellentmechanical properties and very good electrical insulating properties. Almost any property can bemodified.Is epoxy safe? Epoxy is safe and there are no known harmful effects of the chemicals used in the mixture. Italso has a high resistance to chemicals such as gasoline, salt, grease, oil and solvents.Some Advantages of using epoxy floor:• Protects concrete from wear, chemical corrosion and chemical deterioration .• Reduces wear to transport vehicles and reduces time spent on maintenance.• Provides faster material movement through working and transport areas and protects productsfrom damage.• Reduces floor maintenance and cleaning costs, producing a cleaner work environment anddecreases injuries with non-slip surfaces.• Increases light reflectivity and brightens work areas which saves on utility expenses andmaximizes work efficiencies.
  4. 4. Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdWhy to choose epoxy floors?There are many reasons why to go for epoxy flooring, as being seamless innature, hygienic properties, slip resistance etc.Impact Resistance: Epoxy floors are generally used in areas of industry where goods arehandled in specific spaces, such as production lines, warehouses, loading bays, and wherecompressive loads are generated by the movement of goods on trucks, pallets etc.Slip Resistance: Pedestrian traffic areas require varying degrees of slip resistance dependenton whether the environment is wet or dry.Fire Resistance: Fire escape routes, explosive production and storage areas underground carpark decks.Hygiene: Pharmaceutical, Automotive, food, beverage, chemical and electronics industrieshave very demanding sanitary requirements. These industries often need totally dust free andeasily cleanable floors, without cracks or angled Corners.Chemical Resistant: Epoxy floor coverings provide an impermeable seal to protect floor fromchemical attack.
  5. 5. POSSIBLE PROBLEM AND CAUSES Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdAir Bubbles:1.Air trapped in epoxy because of fast mixing of epoxy resins, applicator should use machine with maximum 300RPM - 400RPM2. Use of foam roller or thick nap roller3.Also occurs due to out gassing from the cement4.Always use large container to allow the material to rise under vacuum.5.Hydraulic hose fittings on vacuum lines allow for leak free connections and better vacuum.Basic steps to produce bubble free epoxy castings:1.Careful selection of the epoxy compound to be used. - the least number and amount of volatile ingredients. - the lowest possible viscosities .2.Mixing - Hand Mixingi) De-air each component containing fillers individually.ii) Do not use violent motion during mixing and scrape the sides of the container to insure a thorough mix. De-gas the mixture under vacuum if possible.iii) If vacuum is not available, allow the mix to stand for a period of time to allow the coarse bubbles to escape prior to pouring (dont forget to consider the pot life).iv) Mixing of material in set proportion as per manufactures instruction, once its been done applicator has the limited time of maximum 20 minutes to lay the epoxy.
  6. 6. Construction Chemicals Pvt. Ltd- Mix/Dispense Equipment i) Take precautions to minimize air entrapment while topping up the storage tanks. Slow,steady pouring into one spot will minimize air inclusion. De-air the materials in the storage tanks if possible.ii) Keep the fittings, valves and dispense pistons in good repair. Defective components will allow air to be sucked into the dispense lines.iii) Cavitations and lead/lag problems can be sources for air inclusions.3.Pouring - Pour slowly into one corner of the mould or container. Pouring slowly will allow therising material to push the air ahead of it minimizing air entrapment. - Pour with the least amount of turbulence4.Curing - If possible, de-air the poured assembly prior to cure. This step is not necessary for parts involving small volumes. Large mass castings or castings with complicated shapes, conducive to air entrapment, should be de-aired prior to cure for best results. - Establish and use the appropriate temperatures that result in slow, even gellation. Provide a sufficient reservoir of cool material to replenish the shrinkage that takes place
  7. 7. Pinholes: Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdWhen protecting concrete with epoxy floor coatings, or any surface coating, pinholes throughthe coating sometimes form.They have two possible cause:-1.Pinholes can be caused by air trapped below the coating in tiny surface voids.2.The air expands outward before the coating has cured due to solar heating.3.Application of laying primer to be checked properly, as due to porous concrete slab primertends to penetrate allowing some portion of top surface to dry quickly.4.Due to the surface inconsistencies and volatiles escaping.5.Use of lamb wool roller after application of primer.6.Surface tension causes epoxy film to pull away from pinhole before it gels.7.After applying epoxy with an 800 Roller Cover, force epoxy into pinholes with a stiff plastic ormetal spreader held at a low or nearly flat angle. Re-coat and tip off coating after all pinholes arefilled.
  8. 8. Fisheyes: Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdFish eying occurs due to surface tension differences between the coating and a grease or silicon(sometimes even dust) particle. Simply put, the coating pulls away from the contaminant, leavinga tiny crater like structure in the coating. This crater is not connected to a subsurface air filledspace. Fish eying is almost always a surface preparation problem.1.Contamination of the coating or surface preparation or improper abrasion for the coating.2.Be sure mixing equipment is clean. Avoid waxed mixing containers.3.Fisheying is almost always a surface preparation problem.Induction Time:Some epoxies (and most 2 part polyurethanes) have an induction time associated with them.This means after mixing the 2 parts you need to let the mixture sit for some period of time beforeusing it. If you skip this step, the epoxy may not get hard and/or the colour may be off.Color differences- Like with all other paints, there can be color differences between batches ofepoxy. If you order your epoxy in small units, it is very possible that the cans may come fromdifferent production batches.Also pigments can settle to the bottom of the cans and with thick epoxies that are harder to mixyou might get color differences just because you didnt re-mix the epoxys pigments in the cansequally well. Epoxies all yellow, even the pigmented ones.Epoxy that has been exposed to sunlight will become a different color than the same epoxy, fromthe same batch, still in the can.
  9. 9. Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdEpoxy stays tacky –If it is just tacky in spots but hard in other places, this is poor mixing. If the entire surface istacky, two parts are not mix in the correct ratio. The epoxy may also be tacky if is not given itenough time to get hard. Cure time is temperature dependent. Cold weather could slow thecure rate. Curing will continue when the temperatures warm back up. Still, the epoxy should behard within a few days at most.Epoxy stays tacky - Often occurs due to:-1. Components are not mixed in the correct ratio.2. The epoxy may also be tacky if is not given it enough time to get hard. Cure time is temperature dependent. Cold weather could slow the cure rate.3. Curing will continue when the temperatures warm back up. Still, the epoxy should be hard within a few days at most.4. Bond Failure: a weak surface layer of concrete (from either very old or very new concrete).Or due to less consumption of primer.Cracks :Existing active cracks and/or expansion joints. If you simply paint over them the coating willcrack or peal when movement or shifting takes place.
  10. 10. Epoxy Failures: Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdWater: Water in the concrete is a major cause for premature epoxy floor coating failures.Concrete tends to hold and retain water for a much longer period than most people can or willwait prior to coating. Floors can have dry areas and damp areas, including some damp areasthat never dry out. Touching the surface to test for dryness can be a misleading method fordetermining moisture.Humidity: High humidity can be as detrimental as moisture. Many coating products do notrecommend applications when humiditys exceed 75 or 85 percent.Moisture Flow: Migrating moisture, as opposed to simple standing water, creates a moredifficult problem. The common sign of this kind of failure is water filled blisters. Just a tinyamount of flow pressure under a still curing coating can ruin the bonding process still takingplace. There is no good answer here, but rapid drying/curing coatings have a better chance ofworking.Dust and Dirt: A layer of dust, dirt, or grease is not going to aid coating adhesion. The coatingsstuck, but to the dust and dirt on the floor instead of to the floor itself. The applicator will needto decide how much time and effort to put into surface dust removal.Salts: Salts and/or minerals either deposited out on the surface from the curing of freshconcrete, or from the evaporation of seawater on concrete can quickly ruin a coating. Forstarters the salts work like dust and other contaminants getting between the coating and thesurface. Without moisture, salts tend to form crystals, which can interfere with bonding.
  11. 11. Construction Chemicals Pvt. LtdGrease-oils-silicones: Few, if any, coatings stick to greasy, oily, waxy surfaces. Oily surfacescan be tricky. Even on what seems like a non-greasy surface, many coatings will bead-upleaving behind hollow, coating less circles or voids. Hosing down, high-pressure water, andeven grit blasting, is no guaranty that greases will be removed, indeed, they will probably staybehind. Greasy, oily surfaces require a degreasing chemical to remove the residuePorosity: Some coatings tend to be quite porous, permitting moisture, chemicals, etc. toinvade the coating and attack both the coating and its bonding interface. Some epoxies aremore porous than other kinds of epoxy.Brittleness: Many coatings will fail because they cannot handle the expansion/ /contraction (ormovement) of the underlying surface, or they crack when struck. Once a coating cracks, evena tiny micro fracture, that crack becomes a pathway for moisture and corrosion. It is thebeginning of failure for the coating.UV: Ultra-violet radiations from the sun, UV, will breakdown most coatings. Epoxies tend toyellow and chalk, other coatings, such as plastics, get brittle and crack. After too much UV thecoatings will fail.
  12. 12. FLOOR CARE Construction Chemicals Pvt. Ltd DO’S DON’T’SClean Immediately with detergent and Warm Spill chemical / oil / grease on the floorwater in the event of chemicals/Oil/greasespillageVacuum clean regularly clean floor with Let sand inside- use air lock or air curtaindetergent and warm water using soft Bristle toavoid scratch. Polish as per Manufacturer’sinstructionMaintain reasonably constant temperature Store react able solvent without proper instructionRegular maintenance of trolleys and forklifts. Use imbalance wheelsPrevent locking of wheelsUse Polyurethane or pneumatic wheels with Use black rubber / metal wheels on trolleys andwider contact area to reduce frictional stresses forklifts as it will lead to scoring and marking on the floorKeep mats underneath before placing heavy Drag heavy objects on the floor as it will lead toweights on the floor scratchesCheck the pallets and ensure that no nails or Drop sharp and heavy objects on the floor as itprotruding in trolleys/ forklifts will leave dents and marksRepair leakage in water pipes, air ductsimmediately to avoid pressure beneath thesubstrate which could lead to blisters on thefloor
