A clear, two-pack, water-based epoxy primer and sealer with extraordinarily long-pot-life that quickly cures to a fully-bonded primer or tough, chemically resistant sealer.
Primer on damp or “green” concrete substrates for BITUTHENE® LM, AQUAGARD™ polyurethane and NEWFLEX™ water-based membranes.
Sealer to prevent efflorescence and calcium leachate staining on surface of tiles and step risers.
Very low VOC and low odour
Long-pot-life, fast-cure, no waste
Simple and economical application
Easily mixed full sets, easy clean-up
Also bonds to damp or green concrete – 10% maximum moisture content to damp or green concrete
Substrates must be structurally sound, smooth, clean and dry. Remove all dust, laitance, loose matter, oil, curing compound, form release agents, or other contaminants.
Concrete should have a minimum strength grade of 25 MPa, and be moist-cured as required by AS 3600. Minimum age of concrete at time of waterproofing application should be 14 -28 days depending on concrete thickness and GCP primer being used.
Detail according to NCC, and AS 4654.2 and AS 3740 requirements for external above ground and internal wet areas, respectively. Detailing should be completed before priming process starts.
Add Part B to Part A, mix for 3 minutes using a slow speed mixer – allow to stand for 5 minutes and then re-mix.
Apply undiluted EPOCOTE™ F100W Clear by brush or roller. For porous concrete substrates prone to pin holes, prime using EPOCOTE™ F100W Clear diluted 10% with clean water. Apply undiluted EPOCOTE™ F100W Clear within 24 hours as second coat.

Pot-life will reduce in hot weather. Cold weather or application onto cold surfaces will slow curing time.
Take care to discard material that has started to get gel.
Generally – 0.25 kg/m2 (4m2/litre) dependent on substrate condition.
Unopened containers have 12-month shelf life from date of manufacture, when stored in a dry, cool place.
Generally throw-away brushes and rollers are used. Water will remove uncured product. Xylene may assist removal of gelled product.
