Sikafloor MultiDur ES-23 and 24: Smooth and fine textured unicolour epoxy floor covering

Sikafloor MultiDur EB-24 Broadcast - textured unicolour epoxy floor covering  

APPLICATION INFORMATION

Mixing Ratio Part A : part B = 79 : 21 (by weight)

Consumption ~1.8 kg/m2/mm (1L/m2/mm) applied as a self-smoothing wearing course. These figures are theoretical and do not allow for any additional material due to surface porosity, surface profile, variations in level or wastage etc.

For detailed info, please refer to the System data sheet Sikafloor Multidur ES- 23 / 24 and Sikafloor Multidur EB-24

Ambient Air Temperature +10 oC min. / +30 oC max.

Relative Air Humidity 80 % r.h. max.

Dew Point Beware of condensation! The substrate and uncured floor must be at least 3 oC above dew point to reduce the risk of condensation or blooming on the floor finish. Note: Low temperatures and high humidity conditions increase the probability of blooming.

Substrate Temperature +10 oC min. / +30 oC max.

Substrate Moisture Content < 4 % pbw moisture content. Test method: Sika-Tramex meter, CM-measurement or Oven-dry-method. No rising moisture according to ASTM (Polyethylene-sheet). Note: Use Sikafloor 161 Primer for substrates to 6 pbw. For substrates with moisture content above 6% pbw use Epocem 81  

Pot Life

  • +10 oC ~ 60 minutes
  • +20 oC ~ 30 minutes
  • +30 oC ~ 15 minutes 

Curing Time Before overcoating Sikafloor-263 SL allow:

Times are approximate and will be affected by changing ambient conditions particularly temperature and relative humidity. For accelerated curing times, Sikafloor Booster can be used.  

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

SUBSTRATE QUALITY / PRE-TREATMENT

Concrete substrate must be sound and of sufficient compressive strength (minimum 25 N/mm2) with a minimum pull off strength of 1.5 N/mm2.  

The substrate must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, coatings and surface treatments, etc.  

Concrete substrates must be prepared mechanically using abrasive blast cleaning or scarifying equipment to remove cement laitance and achieve an open textured surface.

Weak concrete must be removed and surface defects such as blow holes and voids must be fully exposed.  

Repairs to the substrate, filling of blowholes/voids and surface levelling must be carried out using appropriate products from the Sikafloor, Sikadur and Sikagard range of materials.  

All dust, loose and friable material must be completely removed from all surfaces before application of the product, preferably by brush or vacuum.  

MIXING  

part B has been added to part A, mix continuously for 3 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. When parts A and B have been mixed, add the quartz sand and if required the Extender T and mix for a further

2 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. To ensure thorough mixing pour materials into another container and mix again to achieve a consistent mix. Over mixing must be avoided to minimise air entrainment.  

Mixing Tools

Sikafloor-263 SL must be thoroughly mixed using a low speed electric stirrer (300 - 400 rpm) or other suitable equipment. For the preparation of mortars use a forced action mixer of rotating pan, paddle or trough

type. Free fall mixers should not be used. Care should be given to use a mixing head/ mixing vessel combination that has the mixing head submerged beneath the surface of the full mix. Failure to do this may entrain excess air into the mix that can create difficulties in expelling all air from the applied floor with the spiked roller.  

APPLICATION

Prior to application, confirm substrate moisture content, relative air humidity and dew point. If > 4 % pbw moisture content, Sikafloor EpoCem may be applied as a T.M.B. (temporary moisture barrier) system.

Primer:

Make sure that a continuous, pore free coat covers the substrate. If necessary, apply two priming coats. Apply Sikafloor 161 /-160 by roller then squeegee to overcome any possibilty of entrapped air from the substrate

creating pin/air holes in the finished product. Preferred application is by using a squeegee and then backrolling crosswise.

Levelling:

Rough surfaces need to be levelled first. Therefore use e.g. Sikafloor 161/-160 levelling mortar (see PDS).

Wearing course smooth:

Sikafloor-263 SL is poured, spread evenly by means of a serrated tooth pattern trowel or pin rake.

Roll immediately in two directions with a spiked roller to ensure even thickness and expel all latent, entrapped air from the mixing process.

Broadcast system:

Sikafloor-263 SL is poured, spread evenly by means of a serrated trowel. Then, level and remove any entrapped air with a spiked roller and after about 15 minutes (at +20 oC) but before 30 minutes (at +20 oC), broadcast with quartz sand, at first lightly and then to excess. When the floor has set hard (approx. 10 hours @ 21 degrees C), remove all excess broadcast sand by sweeping and thorough vacuuming. Note: Use Sikafloor Booster additive to accelerate this process; (refer to Sika Technical Dept for direction.) Apply finish coats of Sikafloor 264 high build flowable epoxy. Usually 2 coats required.

Coverage rates: 2-3m2 per L first coat . 5-6 m2 per L second coat ( rates will vary depending on the size of the broadacst aggregate selected  

CLEANING OF EQUIPMENT

Clean all tools and application equipment with Thinner C immediately after use. Hardened and/or cured material can only be removed mechanically.  

MAINTENANCE

To maintain the appearance of the floor after application, Sikafloor-263 SL must have all spillages removed immediately and must be regularly cleaned using rotary brush, mechanical scrubbers, scrubber dryer,

high pressure washer, wash and vacuum techniques etc using suitable detergents and waxes  

FURTHER INFORMATION

Substrate quality & Preparation

Please refer to Sika Method Statement: EVALUATION AND PREPARATION OF SURFACES FOR FLOORING SYSTEMS.

Application instructions

Please refer to Sika Method Statement: MIXING & APPLICATION OF FLOORING SYSTEMS.

Maintenance

Please refer to Sikafloor- CLEANING REGIME.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

Do not apply Sikafloor-263 SL on substrates with rising moisture.  

Do not blind the primer.

Contaminants such as silicone residue present on the job site, either airbourne or from equipment, may cause defects in the surface of the finished product due to a change in surface tension. A test area may  be required.  

Freshly applied Sikafloor-263 SL should be protected from damp, condensation and water for at least 24 hours.  

For areas with limited exposure and normally absorbent concrete substrates priming with Sikafloor-156/-161/-160 is not necessary for roller or textured coating systems.  

For roller / textured coatings: Uneven substrates as well as inclusions of dirt cannot and should not be covered by thin sealer coats. Therefore both substrate and adjacent areas must always be prepared  and cleaned thoroughly prior to application.  

The incorrect assessment and treatment of cracks may lead to a reduced service life and reflective cracking.  

For exact colour matching, ensure the Sikafloor-263SL in each area is applied from the same control batch numbers.  

Under certain conditions, underfloor heating or high ambient temperatures combined with high point loading, may lead to imprints in the resin.  

If heating is required do not use gas, oil, paraffin or other fossil fuel heaters, these produce large quantities of both CO2 and H2O water vapour, which may adversely affect the finish. For heating use only electric  powered warm air blower systems
