ESD hard grain coating
Downloads & documents
The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.
Field of application
- Textured hard grain coating
- Conductive textured coating
- Dissipative / ESD-compliant
- Resistant to wear
- Can be subjected to mechanical loads
- Can be subjected to chemical loads
- Physiologically harmless once fully cured
The substrate must be firm, dimensionally stable, capable of bearing loads and free of loose constituents, dust, oil, grease, rubber marks and other substances that could interfere with adhesion.
The adhesive pull strength of the surface after priming must be at least 1.5 N/mm² on average (smallest single value min. 1.0 N/mm²), compressive strength at least 25 N/mm².
Suitable Remmers epoxy primers, epoxy scratch coats or epoxy mortars must always be used.
Before the application of the product a smooth surface must be produced, e.g. with a scratch coat.
Install earthing elements and copper strands prior to application, based on the size and shape of the surface. Make sure that no point on the surface is more than 10 m from an earthing point or a connected copper strand.
Refer to the current Technical Data Sheet for detailed information on the single products.
Add the entire quantity of the hardener (component B) to the base compound (component A).
Mix thoroughly with a slow-speed electric mixer
(approx. 300 - 400 rpm).
Pour the mixture into a separate container and mix again thoroughly.
Mix for at least 3 minutes.
Insufficient mixing is indicated by streaks forming.
Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +15 °C to max. +25 °C
As a general principle, higher temperatures will reduce and lower temperatures will increase the times stated.
Working tools / cleaning
Smoothing trowel, suitable textured roller, suitable mixer
More detailed information can be found in the Remmers Tool Programme.
Clean tools, equipment and splashed material immediately while fresh with V 101 Thinner.
Take suitable protective and waste disposal measures when cleaning.
Storage / shelf life
If stored unopened in the original container and kept cool, dry and protected from frost, min. 12 months (component A)/min. 24 months (component B).
Dependent on application (see application examples)
Add the material to the prepared area and smooth with a trowel.
Work through with a suitable structured roller and work through again with another structured roller in one direction without any pressure.
approx. 0.6 kg/m² binder
Unless otherwise speciﬁed, all of the values and application rates given above have been determined under laboratory conditions (20 °C) using standard colours. Slight deviations from these values may arise if the product is worked with on site.
When coating continuous surfaces, only use materials with the same batch number as slight differences in colour, gloss and texture may occur.
Colours with low hiding power (e.g. yellow, red or orange) tend to act as a translucent coating, meaning that a primer of the same colour must be used.
Low levels of air humidity can cause a higher discharge resistance, uneven or thicker layers can even lead the coating to not be conductive at all.
Before checking the ESD values, we recommend cleaning the ESD shoes, the electrodes and the floor coating with isopropyl alcohol or ethanol (95%) and waiting until it has evaporated.
The resulting surface texture is heavily dependent on the conditions on the building site, as well as the working procedure used. It is therefore not covered under product liability.
Low thickness and low temperature can affect the visual effect of the finished surface.
Depending on the application and system, pores may be created due to air pockets when texturing the thixotropic coating material. These may accumulate dirt during use.
Abrasive mechanical loads leave traces of wear.
Suitable for vehicle traffic with rubber tyres; not suitable for vehicle loads with metal or polyamide tyres nor for dynamic point loads.
Epoxy resins are generally not colourfast when exposed to UV light or weather.
In case of repairs on the surface or working up to existing surfaces, there will be a visible transition in appearance and texture.
Anti-slip floors naturally require more cleaning effort than smooth surfaces. Therefore, the use of cleaning machines with soft brushes is recommended.
Further notes on working, system construction and maintenance of the listed products can be found in the latest Technical Data Sheets and the Remmers system recommendations.
Larger quantities of leftover product should be disposed of in the original containers in accordance with the applicable regulations. Completely empty, clean containers should be recycled. Do not dispose of together with household waste. Do not allow to enter the sewage system. Do not empty into drains.
