PLANOFINISH CRYSTAL

Two component paste

Two-component epoxy paste for filling holes in polished terrazzo coatings which occurred during the mechanical polishing process. It is applied to an intermediate grinding step (after 180 or 220) by using a metallic trowel. It is mixed with NOVACOLOR UNIVERSAL and/or GLITTER in a proportion of 3 – 5 % by weight, according to the requirements. It is only suitable for indoor. It can also be used for marble slabs surface repair if applied indoors.

Consumption: Depending on the application
Package: Containers (0,6+0,4) kg

Description

  • PLANOFINISH CRYSTAL epoxy paste for filling pinholes is used:
    • as a filling and protection material in:
        • traditional terrazzo coatings
        • mosaics made with NOVACEM TERRAZZO
        • natural stones
    • for indoor application in areas such as:
        • floors in houses, offices, shopping centers
        • kitchen or, bathroom benches
        • floors with regular use such as public buildings, schools, offices, hospitals,exhibitions halls
        • in combination with Glitter – of appropriate granulometry – for creating opalescent surfaces
  • Form: liquid
  • Compressive strength (1:1 with silica sand 0,1 – 0,4 mm): ≥ 50 N/mm²
  • Flexural strength (1:1 with silica sand 0,1 – 0,4 mm): ≥ 25 N/mm²
  • Adhesion: ≥ 2,5 N/mm²
  • Abrasion resistance: AR1
  • Application temperature: +15°C up to +30°C

Substrate preparation:

It is recommended to apply PLANOFINISH CRYSTAL after the initial grinding, as all embedded aggregates appear uniformly on the surface. Clean the surface thoroughly from dust and abrasive residues and rinse thoroughly with clean water. Allow the surface to dry completely and then apply PLANOFINISH CRYSTAL.

Application of the mix:

Add B component to A component and mix for at least 2 - 3 minutes until a homogeneous mixture is formed. Apply the mix in an intermediate state of the polishing process on a perfectly clean and dry surface. Then, with a metallic or, plastic flexible trowel, press the paste evenly across the surface, filling all the holes, leaving no big amounts of material on the surface. After 24 hours, continue to grind to the desired degree of polishing according to the shape and type of the aggregates.

Recommendations:

  • Always use the preset quantities of A & B components
  • During application, the minimum substrate and ambient temperature should be +15°C and maximum +30°C
  • Low temperature and high humidity rates prolong the time of hardening while significant high reduce the working time
  • The substrate temperature should be at least 3°C above dew point to reduce the risk of condensation
  • Before applying, confirm that the moisture content of the substrate is <4%
  • Do not apply to areas with direct and sustained exposure to solar radiation
  • Protect the applied surface for the first 24 hours from moisture, water and any kind of chemical and mechanical stress
  • Application should be performed by a professional user

Cleaning:

Clean immediately after use with NOVATHINNER PU solvent. Cured material can only be removed mechanically.
