Flexible, self-leveling and hygienic

Description and Uses

The Acrylicon Variant System is an Industrial grade, mono-colour, self-levelling system which can be installed with or without scattered flakes and cures within 2 hours. The thickness of the floor may vary from 1mm to 3mm, depending on the level of impact resistance required by the customer. With an extremely high compressive strength the system is ultra-cleanable even with heavy traffic. The slip resistance can be adjusted based on the customer’s needs and specified regulations.

Designed for heavy industry and clean environments, for example heavy engineering, laboratories, clean rooms, paper mills, pharmaceutical and other areas where hygiene and cleanability are paramount.

Key Features and Benefits

  • High compressive strength – excellent durability and cleanability.
  • 1-2 hours cure time – rapid installation and minimum downtime.
  • Slip resistant – our floors exceed minimum safety requirements and can be tailored to each area.
  • Hard wearing – exceptional resistance to chemicals, abrasion, impact and fire.
  • Chemical bond/cure – a truly seamless floor with no cold joints or risk of delamination.
  • Low emissions – our products are solvent-free and contain very low VOC’s.
  • Long lasting – our floors do not degrade, become brittle or porous with use.

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 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 seal coat resins are transparent, solvent-free, medium viscosity and non-toxic when cured. Pigmented Acrylicon Bodycoat 1061 SW is used as a body coat to obtain tough mono-colour floors. Acrylicon Sealer is used as a colourless, wear resistant seal coat. 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.
