Sika SikaTop Armatec 110 EpoCem is formulated for concrete repair as corrosion protection for reinforcement. It is suitable as a bonding primer on concrete and mortar.
Sika SikaTop Armatec 110 EpoCem is suitable for control of anodic areas (Principle 11, method 11.1 EN 1504-9).
The concrete shall be free from dust, loose material, surface contamination and materials which reduce bond or prevent suction or wetting by repair materials. Delaminated, weak, damaged and deteriorated concrete and where necessary sound concrete shall be removed by suitable means. The surface shall be thoroughly pre-wetted and not be allowed to dry before application of the concrete repair mortar. The surface shall achieve a dark matt appearance without glistening and surface pores and pits shall not contain water.
Rust, scale, mortar, concrete, dust and other loose and deleterious material which reduces bond or contributes to corrosion shall be removed and reinforcement
cleaned to SA 2 in accordance with ISO 8501-1. Surfaces shall be prepared using abrasive blast cleaning techniques or high pressure water-blasting.
SikaTop® Armatec®-110 EpoCem® can be mixed with a low speed (< 250 rpm) electric drill mixer. Shake components A and B thoroughly before opening. Pour liquid components A and B into a suitable mixing vessel and mix for 30 seconds. While still mixing components A and B slowly add powder component C. Mix the three components together for a minimum 3 minutes, minimising addition of air. Leave to stand for 5–10 minutes until mixed coating material exhibits a brush-able, weakly dripping consistency. DO NOT ADD WATER.
As reinforcement corrosion protection:
Apply first layer approx. 1 mm thick, using medium hard brush or spray gun to the cleaned reinforcement. Apply 2nd layer when the first coat is fingernail hard (~2–3 hours at +20 °C). Apply subsequent repair mortars wet on dry (so not to wipe off the protection layer).
As a bonding primer:
Apply using medium hard brush or spray gun to prepared substrate. To achieve good bond, SikaTop® Armatec®-110 EpoCem® must be applied well into the substrate, filling all pores (minimum layer thickness 0.5 mm). Apply subsequent repair mortars wet on wet Freshly applied SikaTop® Armatec®-110 EpoCem® must be protected against contamination and rain until application of the repair mortar.

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.
