Epoxy Resin Saturant(ERS400)

Thixotropic epoxy resin saturant (code ERS ™ 400 and ERS ™ 300) is a high viscosity resin that is designed to install carbon and glass fibers and fabric in a wet and dry method. It is available in forms of gel. FRP paste can be used in cases such as base plates of beams and slabs as well as vertical surfaces where it is not possible to use low viscosity epoxy adhesive. The drying time of FRP paste epoxy gel is very suitable and its mechanical and chemical stability is great after hardening. This type of epoxy is also widely used for installing FRP rebars in NSM method, installing FRP laminates, composite sheets as well as steel sheets in steel jacket method. Due to its high technical and chemical specifications, this product can also be used in corrosion-prone environments.


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FRP paste epoxy gel has excellent adhesion to building materials such as concrete and steel. This gel or adhesive has high mechanical and chemical resistance and dries in a suitable time. Epoxy adhesives and gels (ERS ™ 400 and ERS ™ 300) are very useful and suitable in retrofitting projects and places where it is not possible to impregnate and saturate FRP fibers in the points under beams and ceilings or to install saturated fibers. Other applications of this product are installation of FRP rebars in NSM method and installation of FRP laminates.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive?

Epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive is a combination of resin and hardener with relatively high viscosities. For this purpose, these types of adhesives have a paste or gel-like state. They also have a good drying or hardening time. This matrix provides excellent mechanical and chemical adhesion and stability after hardening.

For which surfaces is epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive suitable?

Epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive, due to its high concentration, is very suitable for vertical and sub-surface surfaces such as the surface under beams, columns, slabs, etc.

What is the difference between epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive and ordinary epoxy adhesive?

Epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive have a higher viscosity than ordinary epoxy adhesive. In addition, the pot life or working time of epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive is longer than that of low viscosity epoxy adhesive.

What are the applications of epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive?

Epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive are widely used in strengthening and retrofitting various structures. Epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive in applications such as producing FRP composite products and installing them on concrete and steel surfaces, etc., planting rebars and bolts in concrete, repairing damaged concrete surfaces and filling surface cavities, connection Structures of steel plates to concrete and other building materials are used as leveling and substructure of surfaces, etc.

What are the properties of epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive?

Epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive, with features or advantages such as high adhesion strength, high strength, high resistance to heat and moisture, good saturation, environmental friendliness, resistance to electricity, high resistance to chemical attacks And it has corrosion, curing or slow cooking, high user opportunity, etc.

What is the price and value of epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive in the market?

The price of epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive is determined per kilo unit. Due to market fluctuations, it is not possible to offer a single price per kilo of epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive. For this purpose, to inquire about the daily price of the product, you can contact our sales experts in Afzir.

What are the methods of applying epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive?

Epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive, due to their high viscosity, are mainly applied by manual layering.

What are the rules and regulations for applying epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive?

FRP paste epoxy adhesive and gel should not be applied at temperatures below 5 °C. It should not be diluted with solvent as it will reduce the resistance. Bedding concrete should be between 21 and 28 days old, depending on the curing and drying conditions. The surface must be free of any contamination before applying FRP paste epoxy adhesive and gel. Do not apply FRP paste adhesive and gel until the surface is dry, as curing may not be performed properly.

How to apply epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive?

To apply epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive, the surface must first be cleaned of any dirt and loose stains. Then mix epoxy gel and FRP paste adhesive according to the criteria in the product datasheet. Finally, apply the FRP paste epoxy glue and gel to the desired surface using a trowel or roller and allow to work well.

What are the physical properties of FRP paste epoxy adhesive and gel?

The color of the two components A and B (resin and hardener) that make up the adhesive and the epoxy gel of FRP paste are gray and white, respectively. Finally, by combining these two components, the epoxy gel and the FRP paste adhesive turn a grayish color. FRP paste epoxy adhesive and gel, at 21 ° C, provide about 90 minutes of working time.
