Additionally, when applying ERS ™ 400 epoxy paste adhesive and gel, it is essential to follow these instructions:
Ensure that the application surface is clean, dry, and free from any contaminants such as dust, grease, or loose particles. Proper surface preparation will promote better adhesion.
Thoroughly mix the epoxy paste adhesive and gel according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use a clean mixing container and mix the components until a homogenous consistency is achieved.
Apply the epoxy adhesive and gel onto the prepared surface using a suitable tool or applicator. Ensure consistent coverage, paying attention to specific application requirements or guidelines.
Allow sufficient time for the epoxy adhesive and gel to cure according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. For optimal curing performance, Maintain appropriate conditions, such as temperature and humidity.
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during the application process, including gloves, safety glasses, and respiratory protection, if necessary. Follow all safety guidelines and precautions provided by the manufacturer.
- ERS ™ 400 epoxy paste adhesive and gel should not be applied below five °C.
- Avoid diluting ERS ™ 400 with solvent, as it can reduce its resistance.
- Ensure that the substrate concrete has aged between 21 and 28 days, considering the curing and drying conditions.
- When selecting a coating, consider the requirements for protection, aesthetics, and fire protection.
