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 „ Specially formulated to provide resistance against ‘epoxy bloom’ in cold weather conditions, improving the floor’s resistance to water staining „ 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 Description Durafloor SLX is a self smoothing, solvent free epoxy screed. It is supplied 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 technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on-site technical assistance. Design Criteria Durafloor SLX 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.

Note: It is very important that all chemical spills are cleaned up immediately. Leaving chemical spills on the floor may result in higher concentrations of chemicals pooling, causing damage to the durafloor SLX. 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. December 2013
