Technical Information
Product Description

Vetotop EL383 is a two component solvent free, conductive epoxy flooring system which consists of an insulating primer, self-adhesive conductive tape, conductive primer and a conductive top layer with excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. Anti-static floors are required to control static electricity such as in hospital operating rooms, cleaning rooms and hazardous & chemical environments.

Advantages
  • Self-smoothening consistency
  • Protects sensitive electronic parts from the effects of static charges.
  • Prevent explosions due to sparks of accumulated static charges.
  • Excellent adhesion to concrete and cement screed substrates.
  • Conductive-anti static floor overlay
  • High mechanical and anti-static
  • Extremely resistant to variety of chemicals  such as alkalis, diluted acids, brine, mineral oil, lubricants and
  • Attractive, availability of wide range of colors.
Compiliance Standard
  • ASTM F150
  • BS 2050
  • DIN 51953
  • DIN-EN:1081

Application Information
Instructions for use

 

Priming

The substrate is to be primed by Vetoprime EP491prior to the application of Vetotop EL393.

Vetoprime EP491 should be mixed in the proportions supplied. Add the entire contents of the hardener can to the base can. When thoroughly mixed, preferably using a slow speed mixer, the primer should be applied in a thin, continuous film using rollers or stiff brushes.

Work the primer well into the surface of the concrete taking care to avoid ponding or over application. The primer should be left to achieve a tack-free condition before applying Vetoprime EP381.

After the drying of Vetoprime EP491, fix self-adhesive conductive tape over the primed surface.

Mix Vetoprime EP381 as per above mixing instructions of Vetoprime EP491. Apply Vetoprime EP381 at a rate of 8-10m2/liter in a single coat.

 

Earthing

Consult Saveto technical representative for proper installation procedure as per the established norms and guidelines for optimum connectivity and results.

Mixing

Vetotop EL383 is supplied in two pre-weighed packs (base and hardener) which are ready for immediate on-site use. Part mixing of these components is not acceptable and will affect both performance and appearance of the finished floor. Mixing should be carried out using either a forced action mixer; or a heavy duty mobile mixer fitted with a jiffy type mixing paddle. All such equipment should be of a type and 

capacity approved by Saveto. The components should be mixed in a suitably sized mixing vessel. Stir the base and hardener components individually then empty them into the mixing vessel scrapping the edges and mix for 2 minutes. The contents of the filler pack should be slowly added and mixing carried out for a further   3 minutes until a completely homogeneous material is obtained.

Application

Ensure that there are sufficient labor and materials to make the mixing and subsequent application process a continuous one for any given, independent floor area. Once mixed, the material must be used within its specified pot life. The material should be poured onto the prepared and primed substrate as soon as mixing is complete. It should be spread to a thickness 1.5-2mm using a notched trowel or a gauged spreader; with care taken not to overwork the resin, spreading evenly and slowly. Immediately after laying, the material should be rolled, using a spiked nylon roller, to remove slight trowel marks, and to assist air release. The rolling should be carried out using a ‘back and forth’ technique along the same path. An overlap of 50% with adjacent paths is recommended. Further light rolling may be required to remove surface imperfections, or for subsequent release of trapped air, but should be prior to the setting of the product.

Cleaning

Vetoprime EP491, Vetoprime EP381, and Vetotop EL383 should be removed from tools and equipment with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use. Hardened material can only be removed mechanically.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc. Laitance and weak surface layer shall be removed using mechanical methods such as grinding or blasting in order to provide a sound well profiled surface.

Materials should be pre-conditioned at 25°C to reduce the possibility of flash and slow setting.

All necessary repairs should be made prior to application by using epoxy mortar from Vetorep ER range.

New concrete floors shall be at  least  28  days  old  with moisture content of less than 5% (shall earlier application be required testing of substrate for moisture conditions shall be made).

Limitation
  • Vetotop EL383 should not be applied on to surfaces known to, or likely to suffer from, rising dampness, potential osmosis problems or have a relative humidity greater than 75%.
  • In areas where significant thermal shock is likely to occur, for e.g. cold rooms etc., please consult the local Saveto office.
  • Vetotop EL383 should not be applied to asphalt, weak concrete below 25 N/mm2 compressive strength, unmodified   sand/cement    screeds, PVC tiles or sheet or substrates known to move substantially e.g. steel
  • Vetotop EL383 should not be installed at temperatures below 15°C or above 35°C. If in doubt, or for application outside these temperature limits, please consult your nearest Saveto
  • In common with all epoxy materials some light shade changes may be experienced over the long term when placed in adverse exposure conditions. Any such change in shade is not regarded as being detrimental to performance.
Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetotop EL383, Vetoprime EP491,Vetoprime EP381 and Vetonit Solvent XX400 should not come into contact with skin and eyes or be swallowed. Ensure adequate ventilation and avoid inhalation of vapors. Some people are sensitive to resins, hardeners and solvents. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, and eye protection. If working in confined areas, suitable respiratory protective equipment must be used.
