It is suitable for use on walls and floors in warehouses, garages, light industrial and food processing areas, kitchens and other areas of pedestrian and light vehicular traffic. Advantages „ Durable - good resistance to abrasion „ Economical - easy to apply, minimises cleaning costs „ Water based - low odour „ Good resistance to a wide range of chemicals „ Asphalt - can be applied to asphalt surfaces Standards compliance Nitoflor FC130 complies with BS 476, Part 7: 1987 - Class 1 spread of flame. Description Nitoflor FC130 is a two-component water dispersed epoxy resin coating system supplied in pre-weighed packs ready for on-site mixing and use. The cured film forms a resilient, semi-matt seal to concrete and other substrates. The product is available in Silver Grey, Mid Grey and Clear. 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 Nitoflor FC130 is designed for application in two coats to achieve an approximate total dry film thickness of 100 microns. Substrates should be dry and not suffer, or be likely to suffer, from rising damp. If necessary, suitable damp-proof membranes should be installed to prevent this. 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.

Excess material should be discarded after this point. Chemical properties Nitoflor FC130 is resistant to a wide range of chemicals. Specific data is available on request. 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 FC130 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. Refer to the Parchem “Guide to Industrial Floor Maintenance”. Application Instructions Surface preparation It is essential that Nitoflor FC130 is applied to sound, clean, dry substrates in order to achieve maximum adhesion between the floor coating and substrate. Because Nitoflor FC130 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 Dry removal of laitance by light grit-blasting or diamond grinding is preferable but, where this is not feasible, treat with an 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. January 2014
