Product Description

Centrecoat Armourcoat WB 2-80 is a 2 pack water based epoxy floor paint for use on concrete and polymer modified cementitious screeds.Category FeRFA Type 1 & 2 floor coating.

Best Uses

Centrecoat Armourcoat WB 2-80 is formulated to provide a tough, hard wearing protective floor finish to standard 1 -2 FeRFA. Armourcoat WB 2-80 is available in a range of colours including clear.

  • Water based technology
  • Resistant to general chemical spillages
  • Durable and non-dusting
  • Economical and easy to apply
  • Suitable for application to sanded power floated floors
  • Can be applied to 7 day old 'green' concrete due to breathable nature

As Centrecoat Armourcoat WB 2-80 is water based, it can be applied to 7 day old 'green' concrete. Due to its easy to clean silk finish, Armourcoat WB 2-80 is ideal for garages, food and beverage industries, light industrial floors and other areas subject to pedestrian and light vehicle traffic.

BS 8204 Part 6 Synthetic Resin Flooring Type Categorisation

FeRFA No Type Description Duty Typical Thickness
1 Floor Seal Applied in 2 or more coats. Generally solvent or water borne LD > 150μm
2 Floor Coating Applied in 2 or more coats. Generally solvent free LD / MD 150 - 300μm
3 High build floor coating Applied in 2 or more coats. Generally solvent free. MD 300 - 1000μm
4 Multi-layer flooring Aggregate dressed systems based on multiple layers of floor coatings or flow-applied flooring, often described as sandwich systems MD / HD > 2mm
5 Flow-applied flooring Often referred to as ‘self-smoothing’ or ‘self-levelling’ flooring and having a smooth surface MD / HD 2 - 3mm
6 Resin screed flooring Trowel-finished, heavily filled systems, generally incorporating a surface seal coat to minimise porosity MD / HD > 4mm
7 Heavy duty flowable flooring Having a smooth surface HD / VHD 4 - 6mm
8 Heavy duty resin flooring Trowel-finished, aggregate filled systems effectively impervious throughout their thickness. VHD > 6mm

LD – light foot traffic, occasional rubber tyre vehicles, MD – regular foot traffic, frequent fork lift truck traffic, occasional hard plastic-wheeled trolleys, HD – constant fork lift truck traffic, hard plastic wheeled trolleys, some impact, VHD – severe heavily loaded traffic and impact

Application

The concrete substrate must be sound with a minimum compressive strength of 25 N/mm2 and a minimum pull off strength of 1.5 N/mm2. The substrate must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, coatings and surface treatments, etc. Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. In coatings, there is a tendency for the finish to mirror imperfections in the substrate. Grinding, or light vacuum-contained shot-blasting is therefore preferred over planing for these systems. Percussive scabbling or acid etching is not recommended. The substrate should be smooth as surface irregularities will show through the coating and excess wear will occur on high spots.

Pre-mix the coloured resin component before use. Add the hardener component to the coloured resin component and mix using a low speed electric mixer (200 - 500 rpm) fitted with a mixing paddle designed to minimize air entrapment for 1-2 minutes until homogeneous.Care should be taken to ensure that any material adhering to the sides and bottom of the mixing vessel is thoroughly mixed in otherwise uncured patches may result.Apply by brush, roller or airless spray. Depending on the substrate porosity, the first coat may be diluted with up to 10% water to aid penetration. The water should be added after mixing of the resin and hardener components is complete.

Avoid ponding of the coating as trapped water will lead to incomplete cure. Do not apply subsequent coats until the previous coat is completely dry. This will depend on temperature, atmospheric humidity and degree of ventilation. Adequate ventilation and air movement is necessary. Each coat should be applied at right angles to the previous coat in order to minimize imperfections and unevenness overall. Uneven application may lead to differences in gloss level across the cured floor.
