It is suitable for use in heavy traffic areas such as light industrial traffic, stairs, fuel station forecourts, driveways and parking stations. Advantages „ Economical and easy to apply „ L ow maintenance „ Simple to recoat or touch up „ Has good wear resistance „ Reduces dusting of concrete floors „ Resistance to yellowing Description Nitoflor FC120 HB is a decorative, wear resistant surface coating with a low gloss finish based on suitably chlorinated rubbers. Nitoflor FC120 HB is a heavy duty chlorinated rubber based floor coating which is resistant to yellowing from ultra violet radiation resistant to attack from automotive fuel spillages. Care has been taken to ensure that colours manufactured under modern processes are as close as possible to samples available. However, it should be noted that no guarantee can be given of exact colour matching from batch to batch. Technical Support Parchem offers a technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on-site technical assistance. Design Criteria Nitoflor FC120 HB is designed for application in two coats to achieve an approximate total dry film thickness of between 60 and 160 microns depending on colour and grade used - refer to coverage details. Substrates should be dry and not suffer, or be likely to suffer, from rising damp. Substrates should not have a relative humidity greater than 80% at the time of installation. Properties The values given below are average figures achieved in laboratory tests. Actual values obtained on site may show minor variations from those quoted. 1LWRIORU)&+% Nitoflor FC120 HB 6SHFLILFJUDYLW\DWƒ&DSSUR 1.25 6ROYHQWFRQWHQWZZDSSUR 60% 'U\LQJWLPHPLQLPXP 24 hours /LQHPDUNLQJSDLQWDGKHVLRQWRFRDWLQJ 'XOX5RDGPDVWHU$ Excellent 'XOX5RDGPDVWHU$ Excellent Chemical properties Nitoflor FC120 HB is resistant to a range of chemicals. Substances to which Nitoflor FC120 HB is not resistant include: Concentrated Phosphoric and Nitric Acid or Ammonia, Chromic Acid, Sodium Hypochlorite, Bromine Water, Sulphur Dioxide, Acetic Acid, Oleic Acid, Animal Fats and Oils, Vegetable Oils, Synthetic Oils (Brake Fluid) or Aromatic and Chlorinated Solvents. Good housekeeping is essential in areas where chemical spillage is likely to occur. It is especially important that such spillage should not be allowed to dry since very much higher concentrations of chemicals will then result. Maintenance The service life of a floor can be considerably extended by good housekeeping practices. Regular cleaning of Nitoflor FC120 HB may be carried out using a rotary scrubbing machine with a water miscible cleaning agent or by hot water washing at temperatures up to 50°C. Application Instructions Surface preparation It is essential that Nitoflor FC120 HB is applied to sound, clean, dry substrates in order to achieve maximum adhesion between the floor coating and substrate. Because Nitoflor FC120 HB is a relatively thin coating, the substrate must be fine textured. Any surface irregularities may show through causing excessive wear on high spots and changing the perceived colour of the coating. New concrete floors Unless water-reduced, the floor should be at least 28 days old or give a hygrometer reading not exceeding 80% RH. Dry removal of laitance by light grit-blasting or diamond grinding is preferable but, where this is not feasible, treat with 10% Hydrochloric acid wash, followed by a neutralising solution then thorough rinsing with water and complete drying. Dust and other debris should then be removed by vacuum brush. Old concrete floors A sound, clean substrate is essential to achieve maximum adhesion. Light grit blasting or acid etching should be carried out as for new concrete floors. Oil and grease penetration should be removed by hot compressed air treatment or with a chemical degreaser. A test area should be done to verify January 2014
