Nevertheless, success in use will be determined by the implementation of good housekeeping practices. Instructions for use Surface preparation The long term durability of any resin floor system is deter - mined by the adhesive bond achieved between the flooring material and the substrate. It is most important therefore that substrates are correctly prepared prior to application. New concrete floors These should normally have been placed for at least 28 days and have a moisture content of less than 5%. Floors should be sound and free from contamination such as oil and grease, mortar and paint splashes or curing compound residues. Excess laitance deposits are best removed by light mechani - cal scabbling, grinding or grit/captive blasting followed by vacuum cleaning to remove dust debris. Old concrete floors A sound, clean substrate is essential to achieve maximum adhesion. As for new concrete floors dry removal of laitance deposits are best removed by light mechanical scabbling, grinding or grit/captive blasting. Oil and grease penetration should be removed by the use of a proprietary chemical degreaser or by hot compressed air treatment. Any damaged areas or surface irregularities should be repaired using one of the Nitoflor EU * † range products. Priming Priming is not normally required provided the substrate is sound, untreated and good quality nonporous concrete. If any doubts exist of the quality of the concrete, or if it is porous it should be primed with Nitoprime SP*. Contact the local Fosroc office for advice. Nitoprime SP should be mixed in the proportions supplied. Add the entire contents of the hardener can to the base can. When thoroughly mixed, preferably using a slow speed drill and paddle, the primer should be applied in a thin continuous film, using rollers or stiff brushes. Work the primer well into the surface of the concrete taking care to avoid ponding or over application. The primer should be left to achieve a tack-free condition before applying the top coat. A second coat of primer may be required if the substrate is excessively porous. Mixing the coating (Mix 1 colour pot of 0.35L with 4.15L pack of base & hardener / Mix 4 colour pots of 0.35L with 16.6L pack of base & hardener) The base and hardener components of Nitoflor FC150 should be thoroughly stirred. The entire contents of the colour pot should be poured into the base container and the two materi - als mixed thoroughly, then add the hardener component and mix for at least 3 minutes. The use of a heavy-duty slow speed, flameproof or air driven drill fitted with a Fosroc Mixing Paddle (MR3) is desirable. Mix these components in the quantities supplied taking care to ensure all containers are scraped clean. Do not add solvent thinners at any time. Standard application The first coat of Nitoflor FC150 should be applied using a good quality medium haired pile roller, suitable for epoxy application, or squeegee to achieve a continuous coating. Ensure that loose hairs on the roller are removed before use. A minimum film thickness of 200 microns should be applied. This can be increased where specifications demand. When the base coat has reached initial cure (12 hours @ 20°C or 5 hours at 35°C). The top coat can be applied by medium haired roller, at minimum film thickness of 200 microns. Care should be taken to ensure that a continuous film is achieved.

1. Nitoflor FC150 constructive solutions Fosroc Nitoflor FC150 Solvent free, high build , epoxy resin floor coating Uses Nitoflor FC150 provides a hard wearing, chemical and abrasion resistant floor finish. It is ideally suited for use in wet areas where a high degree of resistance to chemicals, oils and grease is required such as :  Dairies  Soft drinks production facilities  Chemical manufacturing plants  Car parks and workshops Advantages  Durable, low maintenance costs.  Proven against a wide range of industrial chemicals.  Solvent free - no odour during application.  Slip resistant - different textures available to suit condi - tions to avoid slipping.  Liquid applied providing complete protection.  Available in a wide range of colours to improve the working environment and identify slip hazard areas.  Specially formulated for use in Middle East conditions. Description Nitoflor FC150 is a solvent free system based on epoxy resins and curing agents specially selected for their ability to withstand chemical attack. The system consists of pre- weighed base & hardener components and a Nitoflor colour pack, all of which contain reactive elements that are essential to the installation of the system. A slip resistant texture can be provided by the use of one of a range of Nitoflor Antislip Grains which have been carefully graded to ensure an even texture. Specification The epoxy resin floor coating shall be Nitoflor FC150 from Fosroc. The total dry film thickness of the coating shall be a minimum of 400 microns and shall have a compressive strength of 70 N/mm 2 , flexural strength of 40 N/mm 2 and a tensile strength of 20 N/mm 2 . The floor shall be prepared and the coating mixed and applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s current data sheet. “Nitoflor FC150 complies with ASTM E648 for average critical radiant flux : Class I” Design criteria Nitoflor FC150 is applied as a floor coating system compris - ing of two top coats (depending on the substrate conditions a primer might be required), each top coat to be a minimum of 200 microns thick. To provide a slip resistant texture, the first top coat can be dressed with Nitoflor Antislip Grains*. Typical Properties The following values were obtained when tested at 20°C and 30°C. @ 20°C @ 30°C Pot life : 40 mins 20 mins Cure time : 24 hours 18 hours Maximum time between coats : 36 hours 15 hours Light traffic use after : 24 hours 18 hours Full traffic use after : 48 hours 24 hours Dry Slip Resistance @ 23°C : Extremely low (UK SRG classification) Resistance to chemical spillage : 7 days Compressive strength : 70 N/mm 2 Flexural strength : 40 N/mm 2 Tensile strength ( ASTM D638-99) : 20 N/mm 2 Water absorption : <0.1% ( ASTM D570-98) Shore D Hardness : 77 - 85 (ASTM D2240 : 1996) Reaction to fire : Class A (for Flame Spread Index(FSI) and Smoke Development Index(SDI)) VOC : 6.4 g/l Note: The values given are typical figures achieved in laboratory tests. Actual values obtained on-site may show variations from those quoted. Chemical resistance Fully cured Nitoflor FC150 samples have been tested in a wide range of aggressive chemicals commonly found in industrial environments. Tests were performed in accord - ance to ASTM D 543 standards over 168 hours (7 days at 23°C + 2)

3. Nitoflor FC150 - Page 3 of 4 Fosroc Nitoflor FC150 Antislip application If a slip resistant texture is required, the base coat shall be applied as per the standard application, but at a minimum film thickness of 250 microns. The base coat should then be dressed with the chosen Nitoflor Antislip Grain. This should be done as soon as possible after laying. The recommended pro - cedure is to completely blind the base coat i.e. apply excess dressing aggregate to completely obliterate the base coating. Alternatively, the Nitoflor Antislip Grains can be broadcast in a light random dressing to provide a less dense finish. When the base coat has reached initial cure (12 hours @ 20°C or 5 hours at 35°C), the excess aggregate should be vacuum cleaned from the surface. The top coat can now be applied by medium haired roller, at a rate of 4.0m 2 /litre. Care should be taken to ensure that a continuous film is achieved and the rough surface, caused by the aggregate, is completely sealed. This top coat must be applied within 36 hours @ 20°C (15 hours @ 35°C) of the application of the first coat. Expansion joints Expansion joints in the existing substrate must be retained and continued through the Nitoflor FC150 topping. Fosroc have a range of joint sealants specifically designed for flooring, contact local Fosroc office for advice. Cleaning Tools and equipment should be cleaned with Fosroc Solvent 102* immediately after use. Spillages should be absorbed with sand or sawdust and disposed of in accordance with local regulations. Limitations - Nitoflor FC150 should not be applied on to surfaces known to, or likely to suffer from, rising dampness, potential osmosis problems or have a relative humidity greater than 75% as measured in accordance with BS 8203 Appendix A, or by a Hammond concrete/mortar moisture tester type COCO. - Fosroc does not recommend acid etching as a method of floor preparation. If used, the method should be approved by the project consultant. - In common with all epoxy materials, some slight shade changes may be experienced over the long term when placed in adverse exposure conditions. Any such change in shade is not regarded as being detremental to perfor - mance. Technical support Fosroc offers a comprehensive technical support service to specifiers, end users and contractors. It is also able to offer on-site technical assistance, an AutoCAD facility and dedicat - ed specification assistance in locations all over the world.
