It provides a dense, impervious, coloured and chemically resistant floor surface which is hygienic and easy to clean. Typical applications include hospital clean rooms, laboratories, food processing plants, film studio floors, prisons, supermarkets and light industrial plants. Advantages „ Applied from 2 - 4 mm thickness „ High flow characteristics combined with an attractive self smoothing finish „ Fast application - minimises downtime „ Chemically resistant - good resistance to a wide range of chemicals „ Durable - good abrasion resistance „ Hygienic - provides a dense, impervious, seamless floor surface which is easily cleaned „ Attractive - available in a wide range of colours to enhance the working environment „ Durafloor SL is suitable for use in food processing areas, where non-taint is important „ Complies with BCA, for building material fire hazard properties specification C1.10a for critical radiant flux and smoke development rate values. Description Durafloor SL is a self smoothing, solvent free epoxy screed. It is supplied pre-measured, multi-component system ready for on-site mixing. When laid, it provides a smooth, durable surface. It is available in a wide range of standard colours, and if required, can be overcoated with Durafloor HP to provide anti-slip finishes. Technical Support Parchem offers a comprehensive range of high performance, high quality, flooring, jointing and repair products for both new and existing floor surfaces. In addition, the company offers a technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on-site technical assistance. Design Criteria Durafloor SL is designed for application at a nominal thickness of 2 - 4 mm. Thickness will generally depend on the impact resistance requirements of the finished floor - thicker floor being capable of withstanding greater impact. Substrates should be dry and not suffer, or be likely to suffer, from rising damp. Substrates should not have a relative humidity greater than 75% at the time of installation (refer to Limitations section). Properties The values given below are typical figures achieved in laboratory tests at 23°C. Actual values obtained on-site may show minor variations from those quoted. Physical properties &RPSUHVVLYHVWUHQJWK 90 MPa )OHXUDOVWUHQJWK 30 MPa &XUHWLPH foot traffic: 24 hours vehicular traffic: 48 hours chemical: 7 days Chemical properties Durafloor SL has excellent resistance at ambient temperatures to a wide range of industrial chemicals. Specific data is available on request. Note that it is especially important that spillage is cleaned up since very much higher concentrations of chemicals may occur on evaporation. Maintenance The service life of a floor can be considerably extended by good housekeeping. Regular cleaning may be carried out using a rotary scrubbing machine with a water miscible cleaning agent at temperatures up to 50°C (refer to Parchem’s “Guide to Industrial Floor Maintenance”). In some applications where long term appearance of the floor is important, clear sealers / polishes may be necessary to protect the epoxy and provide a renewable top coat. Consult Parchem for further advice in these circumstances. November 2013
