LOW MODULUS FAST SET EPOXY GEL

Strong Semi-Flexible Epoxy Gel

Epoxy Gel for Shallow Repairs on Vertical or Horizontal Surfaces

Epoxy.com Product #2005


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel is a two component 100% solids epoxy gel designed for shallow repair on either vertical or horizontal surfaces. This product is easy to mix and use and has the consistency of Vaseline petroleum jelly. Additionally, the product, because it is a 100% solids product, can be applied thicker on horizontal surfaces when required.  This is a make to order product.

RECOMMENDED USES

Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel is recommended for repairing cracks and defects in concrete, masonry, and non-pressure treated wood.  The fast set time makes this product an ideal quick repair gel.

PRIMER

None necessary

TOPCOAT

Optional: This product can be overcoated with many suitable epoxy and urethane products.

LIMITATIONS

  • Color stability may be affected by environmental conditions such as high humidity, temperatures, chemical exposure or exposure to certain types of lighting such as sodium vapor lights.
  • Colors or clarity may vary from batch to batch.
  • This product is not UV color stable and may discolor when exposed to UV light sources.
  • Substrate temperature must be 5°F above dew point.
  • This product has a very short pot life. Therefore, mix only an amount that can be used in a short period of time.
  • Do not topcoat over this product until it has sufficiently hardened.
  • All new concrete must be cured for at least 30 days prior to application. 
  • Physical properties are typical values and not specifications. 

MIXING AND APPLICATION

PRODUCT STORAGE

Store Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel at normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90�F. Low temperatures or temperature fluctuations may cause crystallization.

SURFACE PREPARATION

All dirt, foreign contaminants, oil, and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. A test should be made to determine that the concrete is dry; this can be done by placing a 12"x12" plastic sheet then taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate is dry enough to start repair work. This product is intended for hairline cracks and other fractures up to 1/8 inch in width. Remove all unsound concrete from within the crack to be repaired and thoroughly vacuum all debris and dust from within the crack opening. See Epoxy Surface Preparation Procedures for more details.

PRODUCT MIXING

Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel  has a mix ratio of 1 part A to 1 part B by volume. To mix, simply measure out equal volumes of the material and mix them together thoroughly with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. Mix only an amount of material that can be used in a short period of time. A two gallon volume of material will have a usable pot life of about 7-10 minutes. Smaller volumes will be easier to work with as well as adding more time to the usable pot life. Improper or insufficient mixing may result in product failure.

PRIMING

No priming is necessary.

PRODUCT APPLICATION

The mixed Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel can be applied by marginal trowel, putty knife, or any other suitable equipment.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING

When placing a topcoat over a repaired crack, allow the Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel  to cure before installing the coating. If excessive amounts are spread well beyond the crack repair or in areas where surface repairs have been implemented, it is best to check the cured areas for any possible amine blush (a whitish, greasy film or deglossing) prior to coating over this material. If a blush is present, it must be removed prior to topcoating or recoating. A standard type detergent cleaner can be used to remove any blush. Many epoxy coatings and urethanes are compatible for use over this product as well as multiple coats of this product.

CLEANUP

Use xylene

FLOOR CLEANING

Caution! Some cleaners may affect the color of the fast gel installed. Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.

RESTRICTIONS

Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel is fully cured (see technical data under full cure). It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle.
