Conseal Wet is a two-part, water miscible, epoxy primer that has a unique formulation that gives it the ability to be applied to damp substrates including concrete masonry, wood etc.
Conseal Wet can be used on any application where rapid completion of work is required on damp substrates or in any situation where it would be difficult or impossible to dry the substrate. Examples are fresh and waste water tanks, cisterns, and prior to the application of waterproofing systems. Any moisture on the surface of the substrate will react with the coating during the curing process and will become part of it. When cured the coating will be permanently bonded to the substrate.
Type: Two part epoxy coating
Mix Ratio: See label on tin
Hardener: Xyanco 511
Resin Density: 1.5kg/litre
Coverage: 5-6 m2/litre, depending on surface texture and porosity
Solvent: Thin with Xysol PU if necessary and for spraying
Colours: Red. Custom colours made for orders over 100L
Pack Sizes: 1, 2.5, 5 and 10 litres
Shelf life and Storage: 12-18 months in original, unopened container. Store in cool and dry conditions
Preparation: The substrate must be clean, sound and be free of surface laitance or any contamination such as oil, grease, organic matter etc. We recommend removing laitance by diamond grinding, blasting or UHP washing. Remove any oil or other contamination with a suitable detergent, followed by pressure washing with a high pressure water washer. Allow the bulk of the washing water to drain away or if in a tank remove by pumping. Use a jet of compressed air to remove as much water as possible from the surface or mop with a suitably absorbent material. Inspect the condition of the substrate to ensure that there are no areas of loose or friable material before applying Conseal Wet.
Mixing: Should be pre-mixed in the tin before the hardener is added. Add all of the hardener to the tin of resin and mix thoroughly with an electric mixer. Transfer all of the contents into a clean bucket and mix for another 2-3 minutes. When mixed, the resin and hardener will start to react, generating heat which will accelerate the reaction. The greater the mass of epoxy, the more heat will be generated and the shorter the pot life. To prolong pot life pour the resin into shallow trays to allow the heat to dissipate. If you require a smaller quantity or are unable to use all of the material within its pot life, weigh out resin and hardener in the proportions specified on the label using digital scales.
Application: Should be applied liberally by brush, roller or airless spray taking care to ensure that surface is completely coated and that it is free from pinholes and similar defects.
Thining: If thinning is necessary Conseal Wet can be thinned with up to 7.5% Xysol EP solvent. Be careful to avoid adding too much solvent as this will reduce application properties.
Over-coating: Should be allowed to cure for 24 hours before over- coating with other Conseal epoxy product such as Conseal Ceramic.
