Ardex R6E Oil Tolerant Epoxy Primer is a two component, solvent free epoxy resin for use on oil contaminated concrete or cementitious substrates prior to installing Ardex polyurethane screeds and self-smoothing epoxy floor coatings. Blind with Ardex Fine Aggregate and use as a primer prior to applying thick applications of the Ardex SD-T/Ardex K 80 industrial floor system, or other appropriate Ardex cement-based products.
Ardex R6E Oil Tolerant Epoxy Primer may be used on surfaces which are contaminated with oily substances when the following application method is followed. For applications on new concrete or where the relative humidity (RH) of the substrate is in excess of 75%, Ardex Damp Proof Membrane should be used after application of Ardex R6E Oil Tolerant Epoxy Primer in accordance with the datasheet.
If subsequent toppings require a mechanical key, Ardex R6E Oil Tolerant Epoxy Primer may be seeded with Ardex Fine Aggregate immediately after application.
Working time: 20 mins at 20°C
Walkability: 6-8 hours at 20°C
Ardex R6E Epoxy Primer should be allowed to cure prior to the installation of the final floor finish, typically 12 hours at 20°C.
Approximately 24m2 per 6kg unit.
6kg units of Ardex R6E Epoxy Primer are supplied in pre-gauged metal duo containers. The hardener (component B) is in the small container and the resin (component A) is in the large container with room to mix in the hardener (component B).
