BIF EP Coat-200 WB
BIF EP Coat-200 WB is a two-component water dispersed epoxy floor coating for use on concrete and polymer modified cementitious screeds.
BIF EP Coat-200 WB is designed to provide a tough, hard wearing protective coloured floor finish, which may also be applied to 7 day old ‘green’ concrete. Its easy to clean, silk finish makes the product ideal for garages, food and beverage industries, light industrial units, warehouse floors and other areas subject to pedestrian and light vehicular traffic.

A minimum of two coats are required. Some substrates may require additional coats depending on profile and porosity. Light or bright colours such as safety yellow or safety red may require additional coats to achieve full opacity. As a guide, a medium quality substrate may achieve 4 m2 /kg from 2 coats and a more porous substrate may achieve 3 m2 /kg from 2 coats.
As a guide, on a normal substrate:
1st coat - 125g/m2 (40.0m2 per 5kg unit)
2nd coat - 125 g/m2 (40.0m2 per 5kg unit)
Thoroughly mix Part A (coloured base) by mixer paddle attached to a standard drill (using a slower speed setting) for approx 2 minutes. Pour the contents of Part B (Hardener) into the Part A component and using the mixing paddle, thoroughly mix the resin for approximately 2 minutes so that no colour variation can be seen.
You may add clean water to the resin in the First Coat (max 10% by volume) which will improve penetration and absorption of the resin into the substrate. Apply coating to perimeter edges by paint brush before pouring the resin in a strip 100-200mm wide across the room and spread the resin by paint roller to achieve a consistent surface finish.
Allow to cure 24 hours before application of a 2nd coat.
Do not apply outside of the range 10 °C to 25 °C. Localised heating or cooling equipment may be required outside this range to achieve ideal temperature conditions.
The coating may be affected by “blooming” (white hazing caused by condensation or contact with moisture prior to final cure), therefore we advise that the climate above the uncured floor should be maintained at least 3 °C above the dew point for at least 48 hours after application.
Concrete & Polymer Modified Sand/Cement Screeds Substrates in contact with the ground should incorporate a functional damp proof membrane in accordance with CP 102 or in the case of basement floors, BS 8102, although this product will allow the floor to breath and older floors with no damp proof membrane will suffice unless there is a high ground water table.
We recommend that the coating is only applied to cementitious surfaces with a compressive strength of 26N/mm2 or above when tested using a rebound hammer in accordance with BS EN 12504-2 type N and pull-off strengths in excess of 1.5 N/mm2 when tested in accordance with BS EN 13892-8.
Not recommended for use on Anhydrite Screeds.
