Remmers Epoxy MT 100 is a special primer for matt damp substrates based on a transparent epoxy resin. It can be subjected to both mechanical and chemical loads and is free from plasticisers and nonylphenols.
Remmers Epoxy MT 100 is an unpigmented epoxy resin binder that is best used as an impregnation agent, primer, bonding layer, levelling layer and for the production of compression resistant mortars, flow mortars as well as a blinded layer for blinded covers.
The substrate must be firm, dimensionally stable, capable of bearing loads and free of loose constituents, dust, oil, grease, rubber marks and other substances that could interfere with adhesion. The tensile strength of the surface of the substrate must be at least 1.5 N/mm² on average (smallest individual value of at least 1.0 N/mm²), and the compressive strength must be at least 25 N/mm². The substrate can be slightly moist but without liquid film on the surface and should not be exposed to major temperature swings (vapour pressure). In this case the primer must always be applied twice.
- Concrete max 6 m% humidity
- Cement Screed max. 6 m% humidity
The substrate must be protected from exposure to moisture from underneath during utilisation. Weak absorbing substrates must be tested with regard to their suitability for coating, if necessary a trial surface must be set up. If the product is used on green concrete (water–cement ratio < 0,45) the substrate must be suitable for blasting or grinding.
Prepare the substrate by suitable means, e.g. steel ball jetting or diamond grinding, so that it meets the requirements specified above. Broken out or missing areas in the substrate should be filled flush with the surface using Remmers PCC systems or Remmers EP mortars.
Conditions for use
Temperature of material, surroundings and substrate: min. +5 °C - max. +25 °C. During the curing process, the applied material should be protected from moisture which could impair the surface and impair the adhesion. Relative humidity should not exceed 80%. The temperature of the substrate must be at least 3 °C above the dew point temperature during application and curing.
Unless otherwise specified, all of the values and application rates given above have been determined under laboratory conditions (20 °C). Slight deviations from these values may arise if the product is worked with on site. Primers must always be applied so that all pores are filled; it may therefore be necessary to increase the application rate or to apply a second coat. As mineral substrates have different absorption capacities, impregnated surfaces have a spotted appearance. Not suitable for high-visibility surfaces.
When coating continuous surfaces, only use materials with the same batch number as slight differences in colour, gloss and texture may occur. Abrasive mechanical loads leave traces of wear. Epoxy resins are generally not colourfast when exposed to UV light or weather. Further notes on working, system construction and maintenance of the listed products can be found in the latest Technical Data Sheets and the Remmers system recommendations.

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.
