Sika Sikafloor 169 is a two part, very low yellowing, low viscous, transparent epoxy resin for mortars, screeds and seal coats.
Sika Sikafloor 169 is formulated as a transparent binder for coloured quartz mortars and screeds such as Sika CompactFloor and Sika-DecoFloor systems. It is also suitable as a transparent sealer coat for broadcast colour quartz mortar screeds and smooth coatings fully broadcast to excess with coloured chips.
Sika Sikafloor 169 is suitable for normal up to medium heavy and heavy mechanical loading. It is particularly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries, for show rooms, workshops and production areas etc.
- Low VOC-content
- Low yellowing
- Good mechanical and abrasion resistance
- Low viscous
- Easy application
- Multi-purpose binder
Sika Sikafloor 169 may only be used by experienced professionals.
The concrete substrate must be sound and of sufficient compressive strength (minimum 25 N/mm2) with 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. High spots must be removed by e.g. grinding.
All dust, loose and friable material must be completely removed from all surfaces before application of the product, preferably by brush and/or vacuum.
Prior to mixing, stir part A mechanically. When all of part B has been added to part A, mix continuously for 2 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. To ensure thorough mixing pour materials into another container and mix again to achieve a consistent mix. Over mixing must be avoided to minimise air entrainment.
When using an additional C component like the Sikafloor DecoFiller, please add the C component after Parts A and B have been mixed, in the correct mixing
ratio (Wearing course Sika-DecoFloor; 1 part resin:1.5part Sikafloor DecoFiller) and mix for a further 2 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. For mortars add the premixed Sikafloor®-169 to the aggregates and mix until a uniform mix has been achieved.
Sika Sikafloor 169 must be thoroughly mixed using a low speed electric stirrer (300 - 400 rpm) or other suitable equipment. For the preparation of mortars use a forced action mixer of rotating pan, paddle or trough type. Free fall mixers must not be used.
