For a modern, durable and neat environment, choose our ready-mixed or personalized colours and our decorative flakes.
A NOTE ABOUT CONCRETE The concrete floor must have been poured at least 90 days prior to being coated. Perform a humidity test; the humidity level should be below 4%. If the test fails, do not apply Passeport Élite 100% Solids Epoxy.
WARNING Always wear safety goggles, nitrile gloves and long sleeves and pants to avoid any contact with the epoxy. If skin contact occurs, wash immediately with warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
Proper surface preparation is crucial. The concrete must be clean, dry and free of oil and contaminants.
CLEANING: Clean the concrete surface using Passeport Élite Concrete Preparation. Rinse thoroughly and leave to dry for at least 48 hours. For stubborn oil stains, use Passeport Élite Degreaser.
SANDING: Resurfacing with a polisher is by far the best surface preparation method, but it can be replaced by sanding for most residential projects. Sand the concrete surface using a sander fitted with 60-grit sandpaper in order to remove old paint.
REMOVING DUST: Remove all dust from the concrete surface using a shop vacuum. Remove all contaminants or fine concrete dust from the surface.
FILLING CRACKS: Expand the cracks using a grinder in order to free up friable particles, and clean with the shop vacuum. Use a concrete filler. Passeport Élite 100% Solids Epoxy can be applied 4 to 6 hours later.
READY-MIXED COLOURS: You only need to stir it a little before adding the epoxy hardener.
PERSONALIZED COLOUR: Pour all of the tint in the epoxy resin container (component A). Mix, scraping the sides and bottom of the bucket to get a homogeneous colour. If a coat requires more than one 4.5 L container, mix the containers together in a 5‑gallon pail and pour back into the original containers according to volume.
IMPORTANT! Colour variations may occur if epoxy tinting, mixing and application procedures are not followed.
Stir each component separately. Pour all the epoxy hardener (component B) in the epoxy resin (component A). Mix well for 4 minutes at a low speed (300 to 450 RPM) using a drill fitted with a mixer. Do not mix at a high speed to prevent air entrapment bubbles. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bucket frequently with a stir stick to get a homogeneous epoxy mixture. Let the mixture stand for 2 minutes. Apply all of the mixture within 30 minutes.
IMPORTANT ! Mixing must be done properly in order for the epoxy hardener to have a uniform effect. The epoxy must be applied within 30 minutes of mixing.
Pour the epoxy directly onto the floor in consecutive and parallel strips. Using a brush, quickly cut in the edges. Then, using a squeegee, spread the epoxy and back roll (left to right, then toward you). It is important to get a uniform epoxy coating and avoid puddling.
On vertical or sloped concrete surfaces, apply THIN COATS of the epoxy to prevent sagging.
IMPORTANT! The epoxy will start to cure quickly after 40 minutes and will be completely unusable after 50 minutes.
ANTI-SKID SAND AND DECORATIVE FLAKES: To get an anti-skid surface, sprinkle quartz sand evenly within 60 minutes of applying epoxy. Back roll (left to right, then toward you).
Use the same technique to add decorative flakes. Apply an additional coat of clear epoxy to prevent the flakes from chipping.
AMOUNT OF DECORATIVE FLAKES BASED ON DESIRED HIDING LEVEL/100 SQ. FT.
|Very light||2%||0.3 lb.0. / 125 kg|
|Light||5%||0.7 lb. / 0.3 kg|
|Medium||12.5%||1.75 lb. / 0.8 kg|
|Intense||25%||3.5 lb. / 1.6 kg|
|Very intense||50%||7 lb. / 3.2 kg|
|Complete||100%||15 lb. / 7 kg|
Allow a minimum of 24 hours before permitting foot traffic and a minimum of 48 to 72 hours before permitting vehicles on it. The temperature and humidity will affect the epoxy curing time.
Clean all tools with xylene immediately after use. Always keep your goggles and gloves on to avoid any contact with the epoxy.
IMPORTANT! Once the epoxy has cured, it can only be removed mechanically.
