Substrate preparation:

The substrate has to be compact, clean, free of grease, oil, laitance and any substances which may compromise the adhesion of NOVACOL 2K ELASTIC. The minimum tensile strength of the substrate must be at least 1,5 N/mm² and the minimum compressive strength at least 5 N/mm². Existing cracks on the substrate should be bonded with the fluid epoxy resin EPO FLUID. On the still fresh EPO FLUID surface, scatter PLANOCOLOR GRANULATES S 500 silica sand or similar in order to create a mineral surface. Concrete based substrates should be prepared in example by grinding, in order to obtain a uniform flat mineral surface without protruding spots.
Existing ceramic, gres porcelain tiles, marble and stone coverings on floors and/or walls must be firmly attached to the substrate and free of laitance on their surface which may compromise adhesion. If required clean the coverings with appropriate detergent, depending on the type of dirt, like ALCALINE CLEANER or ACID CLEAN and rinse with plenty of water. For additional information refer to the Technical Data Sheets of the relevant products.

Preparation of the mix:

Components A and B are in a predetermined mixing ratio. Transfer the entire quantity of component B to the packaging of component A and mix it with an electric mixer at low revs (300 rpm) for at least 3-5 minutes. Mixing should be carried out until the mixture is completely homogenized. The product is ready for use. The mixture has about 1 hour pot life. In hot periods and in general, it is advisable not to expose the materials before using them in the sun (powders and liquids), otherwise the open time of the mixture is greatly reduced. Avoid mixing in any case by hand.

Application:

It is applied with a tooth spatula depending on the back site of the coating. Follow the coating manufacturer's instructions. The amount of adhesive applied should be sufficient to ensure satisfactory coverage. Apply uniformly the adhesive to a surface where you can stick the coating within 60 minutes.

Grouting:

In areas where resistance to strong chemicals is required like in example wet areas or industrial floors it is recommended to use the epoxy grout NOVAGROUT EPOXY or NOVAGROUT DECO EPOXY. For additional information refer to the Technical Data Sheets of the relevant products.

Recommendations:

  • Don’t apply on substrates and/or areas with temperature less than +15°C or higher than +30°C
  • Do not cover or apply the product over existing expansion joints
  • Do not apply to wet substrates, maximum humidity <3%
  • Do not apply on fresh asphalt surfaces or with oil drainage
  • Applying with a flat spatula is required to form a sealing membrane
  • Application must be done by professional applicators

Cleaning:

Tools, buckets, tiles etc. can be cleaned with NOVATHINNER PU as long as, NOVACOL 2K ELASTIC is still fresh.
