Flortex Freeflow Product Details
Flortex Freeflow is THE answer for smoothing out slightly rough or pitted surfaces. Using our unique self smoothing FreeFlow resin technology, enables the resin to flow and smooth over those annoying dings and bumps that cause so much trouble, whether it is pushing over heavy loads to slip, trips and twisted ankles!It is an incredibly strong, solvent free, 100% solids twin pack epoxy. This product can be used in sensitive areas such as laboratories, food factories, school, hospitals, etc, etc. Flortex Freeflow is a highly advanced floor levelling system, achieving a seamless, smooth and totally impervious gloss finish with outstanding chemical resistance. Should a matt finish be required, then we can supply the necessary coating that can be applied over, the following day.

Thorough substrate preparation is essential.The recommended method for concrete surfaces includes the use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster. this will easily and professionally achieve the dust free removal of weak laitence and any such loose material, in order to provide a perfect surface key for the coating. If this is not possible, then two other approved methods would be with the use of a Vacuum Assisted diamond Grinder and/or Polycote Etch IT. Having applied the Etch IT, you can then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry – see relevent data sheet.
Where there might be oil or grease contamination, these can be cleaned with Polycote Degease IT. Again, rinse thoroughly and allow to dry – see relevent data sheet.
Use of the correct epoxy primer is vital to success. Contact the Polycote technical help line for advice and follow all preparation and application guidelines on the relevant primer data sheet.Clean, sound, dry concrete – prime with EP Primer.Oil-impregnated or damp concrete – use OT Primer.Quarry/Ceramic tiles or terrazzo – use WD Primer.In any case, Flortex® Freeflow should be applied within 36 hours of priming to ensure a good intercoat chemical bond. If the interval is exceeded, abrade the primer coat to provide a mechanical key.
Having fully prepared and primed the substrate, stir parts ‘A’ and ‘B’ individually, then add Part ‘B’ to Part ‘A’ and thoroughly mix for at least one minute. For best results use a heavy duty slow speed drill with a mixing paddle. The mixed material should then be loaded into a rotary drum mixer or similar and the filler Part ‘C’ be added gradually. Continue mixing until an even consistency is obtained.
Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation.
Starting at the furthest corner from the exit pour the material evenly onto the floor to the required thickness and allow the material to start levelling.The use of depth adjustable floats or a pinned/notched leveller is recommended to assist in spreading the screed to a constant thickness.A spiked roller should be used immediately over the freshly poured material to eliminate any bubbles trapped within the screed. The next mix of material must be rapidly produced and poured along the wet edge of the material as well as across the exposed floor.Each application should be laid within 10 – 20 minutes of the area adjoining in order to blend evenly into the edge of the previously laid material. (Please note that the times mentioned are completely dependant upon temperature/conditions of the surface/area. The blending in of each batch can be helped by gently trowelling along the joint, if necessary.Once the workable time has been exceeded it is not possible for the new material to be blended into previously applied material. Therefore the floor topping should be applied to the entire area in one continuous operation. DO NOT scrape the contents from the sides of the container as this will invariably include unmixed resin. The WET coating should then be rolled using a spiked roller to eliminate air bubbles trapped within the coating. Spiked shoes should be worn to avoid disturbing the wet surface. DO NOT attempt to re-roll later.
Do not mix more than can be applied in 20 minutes (maximum)
