Mapecoat I 24 is an excellent protective coating for concrete surfaces such as floors, reservoirs and concrete pipes, resisting the aggressive action of acids, alkalis, salts, oils, hydrocarbons and solvents. After applying two coats of Mapecoat I 24 paint to flooring it is ready for light foot traffic after 24 hours.
Mapecoat I 24 can be used to protect purification tanks, sewage pipes, exhaust tanks for oil and hydrocarbons and industrial floors from chemicals. Mapei Mapecoat I24 is ideal for the chemical protection of sewage pipes, protective coating of purification tanks, chemical and mechanical protection of industrial flooring, and protecting recovery tanks for oil, hydrocarbons, first-flush rainwater, etc.
The surfaces to be coated must be completely clean, solid and dry. Sandblast surfaces to remove loose particles, dust, grease, and traces of form-release oils and paint. Seal cracks or deteriorated areas with products from the Mapegrout range. Seal all pores and gravel clusters and level off any uneven areas in the sub-layer with Mapefinish fine textured smoothing and levelling compound. Porosities and small surface imperfections can be levelled with Mapefinish smoothing compound.
In case of damp substrates Mapecoat I 24 must be used after applying Triblock P, three-component epoxy-cementitious primer (consult the technical data sheet for Triblock P). Triblock P, diluted with water, can be used as it is, or with sand, such as Quartz 0.25 or Quartz 0.5, which should be added when a skim coat suitable on irregular concrete surfaces is desired. Mapecoat I 24 can only be applied when the complete curing of the substrate has occurred.
The two components which make up Mapecoat I 24 must be mixed together. Pour component B (hardener) into component A (resin) and mix with a stirrer at low speed to avoid the formation of air bubbles, until a homogeneous paste is obtained. Do not use partial quantities of the components, thus avoiding accidental
errors in dosage that would compromise the hardening of Mapecoat I 24.
Mapecoat I 24 is available in white and neutral and in various RAL colours upon request. Upon request the neutral Mapecoat I 24 may be coloured with Mapecolor Paste while preparing the product. For each 5 kg Mapecoat I 24 packaging, 0.7 kg of Mapecolor Paste (colourer in paste form) must be added. Add 1.4 kg of Mapecolor Paste for each 15 kg kit of neutral Mapecoat I 24.
Mapecoat I 24 can be applied with traditional methods, that is with brush, roller, or airless spray gun in at least 2 coats. The second coat can be applied from 6 to 24 hours later, depending on ambient conditions. Protect the coated surface from rain for at least 12 hours. Mapecoat I 24 is ready for light foot traffic after 24 hours.
The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
