Paint with flooring capebilities

Description and Uses

The Acrylicon Variant Paint System is a thin coating system. It consists of the same primer and sealer as our Variant System with a paint coat of colour as the body. This gives a hard wearing seal coat for the concrete that provides dust proofing, waterproofing, chemical protection and good aesthetics.

Designed for sealing and colouring concrete, for example light engineering, car parks, plant rooms and other areas where a resin coating is required.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Clean regularly using a mechanical Scrubber/Dryer. Cylindrical machines with a built in vacuum are best suited in combination with a neutral degreaser. Contact your nearest AcryliCon office for advice.

Cure Time

The Variant Paint System is fully cured within 2 hours after installation and may be put into full use by the customer.

Properties and Application

Acrylicon primer, body coat and sealer resins are transparent, solvent-free, medium viscosity and non-toxic when cured. The curing time is about 1 hour at 20°C/68°F (ambient). The lowest application temperature (substrate and material) is 5°C/41°F.

Substrate

The concrete strength must not be less than 22.5N/mm2 (3250psi). Cores may be required for laboratory testing if any doubt exists. The substrate must be solid, free of dirt, oil, dust and other contaminants that would prevent bonding. It is necessary to protect the substrate from rising moisture and ground water pressure.  Acrylicon systems can be applied onto 28 day old concrete at a Relative Humidity of up to 95%. Should there be any doubt about the moisture in the concrete, an insulated hygrometer is recommended for testing the vapour leaving the substrate. In situations requiring rapid installation, AcryliCon can provide fast cure systems as alternatives to traditional concrete. AcryliCon systems can also bond to other substates. For further advice please contact your nearest AcryliCon office.
