Blome - Model EC-80 - High Performance Epoxy Coating
EC-80 is a 100% solids, Epoxy coating that is used as a chemical resistant coating and lining system for secondary containment structures, concrete floors, and other process applications that demand chemical resistance, and durability. EC-80 is typically aggregate filled by the “seeded” or blended methods. Aggregate filled EC-80 results in a non-slip yet cleanable finished surface. The product can be reinforced with EC-Scrim to provide a system with high impact and thermal shock resistance. EC-80 reinforced with EC-Scrim is crack resistant and will effectively bridge minor cracks in concrete. EC-80, as packaged, is a semi-leveling material. By adding a third component, Part C, a non-silica thixotrope, a high build coating is produced. The product may be applied by spray, notched trowel, squeegee, brush or roller. EC-80 is also installed as a 1/8” thick Dense Mortar Lining using Blome 410 Filler Powder. For a trowel/caulk grade or putty, add Part C or 410 Powder.
EC-80 is available in 1, 5, and 25 gallon units. Each unit consists of pre-measured Part A and Part B components. The mix ratio of Part A to Part B is 4:1 by volume. Bagged Part C thixotropic agent, and/or Blome 410 Filler Powder are ordered separately. Coverage will be affected by the condition and type of substrate being coated (degraded vs. smooth, steel vs. concrete, etc.) and the applicator’s ability to maintain consistent thickness. To calculate theoretical coverage per gallon, divide desired mil thickness into 1604. The result is the number of square feet per gallon.
