If more than 48 hours elapse, mechanically abrade the primed surface and re-prime. Mixing & Placing Primer - Durafloor TF Binder Base resin must be mixed with the hardener component in the correct ratio of 3:1 by volume (Base : Hardener). Using suitable measuring jugs and mixing vessel, add 3.0 litres of base resin to every 1.0 litre of hardener. Mix thoroughly for a minimum of 3 minutes using a slow speed mechanical stirrer and suitable epoxy mixing paddle. Apply Durafloor TF Binder to substrate with a quality lambs wool roller. A wet film thickness of 150 microns minimum is required to ensure the necessary bond. Ensure the prime coat is wet or tacky and NOT TACK FREE prior to commencement of the main application of Durafloor TF. Trowel Mix – Durafloor TF Base resin must be mixed with the hardener component in the correct ratio of 3:1 by volume (Base : Hardener). To every 4.0 litres of mixed binder add 1 (0.5 kg) Durafloor colour pack and sufficient Durafloor TF fillers to provide a workable trowellable mix. A suggested ratio is for every 4.0 litres of mixed Durafloor TF Binder add 1 colour pack and 40.0 kgs of the Durafloor TF fillers. Total yield based on this proportioning will be 23.5 litres (approx). Total yield based on full Durafloor TF 20L pack (including fillers & colour packs) is 117.5 litres (approx). 1. Stir both base resin and hardener components thoroughly before use. 2. Using suitable measuring jugs and mixing vessel, add 3.0 litres of base resin to every 1.0 litre of hardener. Add 1 colour pack (0.5kg) and mix thoroughly for a minimum of 3 minutes using a slow speed mechanical stirrer and suitable epoxy mixing paddle. 3. Add the Durafloor TF fillers and mix for a further 2 – 3 minutes until a uniform colour and consistency is achieved. 4. Once mixed, apply the Durafloor TF by spreading the material over the primed surface. Compact to achieve a dense 5 mm screed. Finish to desired texture with a steel trowel and allow to cure. Overcoating For applications where non-slip or chemical resistant properties need to be enhanced, one or two coats of the Durafloor range of epoxy coatings can be applied. This should be done within 3 days of laying the Trowel Floor. Joints All existing expansion and movement joints should be followed through the new floor surface. Joints should be cleaned and prepared prior to installing the appropriate Parchem joint sealant. This will depend on the anticipated movement and chemical resistance requirements of the new floor. For further advice contact your local Parchem sales office. Cleaning Durafloor TF Binder or Durafloor TF should be removed from tools and equipment with Solvent 10 immediately after use. Hardened material can only be removed mechanically. Limitations Durafloor TF Binder or Durafloor TF should not be applied on to surfaces known to suffer or are likely to suffer from rising damp conditions or having a relative humidity of greater than 80%. Refer to Parchem for further advice if necessary. Durafloor TF Binder or Durafloor TF should not be applied to asphalt, unmodified sand/cement screeds, PVC tiles or sheet. For information on the suitability of other substrates, consult your local Parchem sales office. Durafloor TF Binder or Durafloor TF should not be installed at temperatures below 10°C. Supply Durafloor TF Binder: 20 litre pack (15 litre Base and 5 litre Hardener) Durafloor TF Fillers: 20 kg bag Solvent 10: 4 and 20 litre drum Coverage Durafloor TF 5 m²/litre Binder as a priming system: Durafloor TF as a Trowel system: Refer mixing instructions for proportioning, 23.5 litres yield when 40 kg TF fillers used with 4 litres of mixed binder. 23.5 litres of mixed Durafloor TF will cover 4.7 m² at 5mm thickness OR: 1 x Durafloor TF 20L pack (15L base & 5L hardener) + 5 x 0.5kg Durafloor Colour Packs + 10 x Durafloor TF Fillers 20kg = covers 23.5m² at 5mm thick. The coverage figures given are theoretical - due to wastage factors and the variety and nature of possible substrate, practical coverage figures will be reduced. Typically, an additional 10% should be allowed for surface irregularities and wastage although this will vary with site conditions.
