Duram EP S100 is a heavy duty, roll-on epoxy coating for floor and walls. Not only is Duram EP S100 aesthetically pleasing it is hard wearing, very durable and easily cleaned.
Duram EP S100 has 100% solids (No Voc's), has high chemical and stain resistance, and is suitable for foot and vehicular traffic including forklifts.
Anti-slip media can be incorporated in to the product to provide the required anti-slip rating.
Duram EP S100 epoxy roll-on coating is suitable for:
Industrial, commercial, residential and domestic floors and walls.
Heavy duty industrial traffic.
Food, meat (abattoirs) and beverage production or processing areas.
Garbage and refuse areas.
Waste water treatments.
Chemical production areas.
Motor Vehicle workshops.
Wash and change rooms.
Mining operations and facilities.
Port and marine facilities.
Duram EP S100 is mainly used on concrete surfaces, but it is also suitable for steel surfaces, timber and CFC Sheeting.
Duram EP S100 can be used for high traffic, chemically demanding, anti-staining areas.
The information contained in this product data sheet is typical but does not constitute a full specification as conditions and specific requirements may vary from project to project. The instructions should be considered as a minimum requirement but the applicator or contractor must use their skill, knowledge and experience to carry out additional works as may be necessary to meet the requirements of the project. Specification for specific projects should be sought from the Company in writing.
Avoid applying when relative humidity is greater than 80% and temperature is below 12 C.
The product should only be used by a person suitably experienced and skilled in applying epoxy (2 parts) products.
Product mixed off ratio may result in the non-curing or improper curing of the product and will certainly diminish or negate the performance of the product.
Texture and Profile of the Product
The finish, profile and appearance of the product may vary dependent upon the size, porosity, strength and type of aggregate and the finish of the concrete. On sound surface the range of variation can be controlled and/or limited to closely resemble the referenced CSP standard. As the depth of removal increases, the profile of the substrate will be increasingly dominated by coarse aggregate.

Priming and Surface Preparation
Good preparation is essential. Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, clean and free of dust, loose, flaking, friable material and substances that may diminish adhesion.
Good and proper surface preparation is essential for a successful project.
Concrete must be at least 28 days old, dry and free of curing agents, oils, grease, dirt, dust and contaminants.
Drummy, friable, loose, weak and doubtful concrete should be removed and then made sound using a suitable high density, high strength mortar. Allow to properly cure.
If contaminated, then clean with industrial strength heavy duty degreaser the thoroughly flush. This process may need to be repeated.
Remove laitance, best by mechanical abrasion (grinding) to exceed CSP 3 Standard.
If this is not possible then aid etch (50:50 hydrochloric acid: water), then apply at about 2m²/Lt and allow this to react for approximately ten minutes. Apply an acid neutralising base then thoroughly flush with water, allow to dry, then scrub with a stiff brush/broom to remove loose material.
Timber and CFC
Surfaces must be dry, free of oils, grease, dirt, dust and contaminants.
Prepare steel surfaces in accordance with AS 1627-2002.
All paint must be removed. This can be done by using a paint stripper, degreaser / cleaner then grinding or sand-blasting to a bright metal finish.
Note: As good preparation is vital, the surfaces should be checked for preparation adequacy before proceeding with the application.
Add colour pack to Compound (resin component). This mix is stable and can be stored indefinitely.
Add hardener to the above mix in the correct volumetric ratio.
Mix only sufficient material that can be easily applied within 25 minutes at normal temperatures of between 20 C and 25 C.
Mix thoroughly using a mechanical stirrer at low speed (>400 rpm). Ensure that the sides and bottom of containers are scraped so that all material is thoroughly mixed.
Avoid air entrapment.
Mix by volume in the following ratio. 3 parts resin (incorporating the colour pack) to 1 part hardener.
Note: It is critical that the product is mixed in the correct ration. Deviations may result in non or improper curing and the diminution and negation of the product's performance.
Ensure that the area has been correctly prepared.
Ensure that the correct fixed volume of product is at hand can be applied to over the area at the correct application rate.
The product mixing area should be isolated from the application area, and care should be taken that unmixed products or spills do not contaminant the area.
Using a slow mechanical mixer (400rpm), thoroughly mix the colour pack in to the resin component them add the hardener component and mix until homogenous. Sides and bottoms of containers should be scraped to ensure that all product is properly mixed.
Apply at least two coats by roller or airless spray to achieve a final 300 micron dry film thickness. The first can be diluted (if required) up to 20% with Duram Solvent to promote easier working. If Duram Solvent is used then it is important to ensure that all solvent has evaporated before applying the next coat.
If more than 24 hours are elapsed between coats, the first coat should be abraded to a uniform dull finish with all dust and lose material removed.
The select aggregate should be broadcast in to the first wet coat. Any excess aggregate should be brushed away and then a top coat should be applied.
Optional Clear Coat
A coat of Duram EP S100 Clear can be applied for additional glass and ease of cleaning.
The stated average coverage rate may vary depending upon type, condition, porosity, texture of the surface and application technique.
Approximately 4m2 to 6m2 per Lt per coat, usually applied in two coats.
8 Lts covers 24m2 @ 160 microns dry film thickness per coat. Final DFT is 320 microns.
16 Lts covers 48m2 @ 160 microns dry film thickness per coat. Final DFT is 320 microns.
Duram EP S100 Colour packs are available in the following colours:
White, Black, Light Grey, Koala Grey, Deep Grey, Red Oxide, harbour Blue and Sand.
Drying and Curing
Drying and curing of the product is affected by type, dryness and porosity of the surface, temperature, humidity, ventilation, climate conditions and application technique and therefore drying and curing can only be given as a guide.
Pot Life @ 25 C: 30 minutes
Tack Free Time @ 25 C: 10 hours
Re-Coat Time: 12 to 24 hours.
Cure Time at 25 C: 7 days
Self Life (Unmixed in original unopened containers): 2 years
Store in cool, dry conditions away from corrosive chemicals.
Spills should be avoided as they are difficult to clean particularly off porous surfaces. Wet spills may be cleaned using a cloth and Duram Solvent.
Tiling, Topping or Top Coating
For full safety data refer to the products Material Safety Data Sheet. Observe precautions as per label.
Tests and Technical Data
The table below is given as a guide only and tests should be carried prior to use for a given application and requirement. The chemical resistance is based on spillages and not long term contact. Duram EP S100 is resistant to wide range of chemicals but specific data should be sought from the Company.
Ammoni, Volatile hydrocarbon solvent, Kerosene, Sulphuric Acid 30%, Diesel Oil, Petrol, Acetic Acid 5%, Hydrochloric Acid 20%, Sodium Hydroxide 30%, Sodium Chloride, Vegetable Oils
Staining may result from contact with some aggressive chemicals.
The product is UV stable but may yellow dependent upon colour
