Quick Overview:

Share: Messenger


A fast curing epoxy paste for adhesive applications, suited for grouting and caulking when down time is critical.
Bonds to a variety of surfaces including steel, concrete, timber and fibreglass.
 
Extremely tough, designed originally as a rapid cure ceramic tile adhesive. Uses extend to fairing pitting on steel surfaces prior to coating and bonding or repairing piping or other equipment. Can be sanded or machined to shape or tolerances.
 
Epigen FC1 possesses excellent water resistance and resists many harsh and aggresive chemicals including degreasers, cleaners, aviation fuels and lubricants, acid and alkali reagents.


TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Ceramic Tile Adhesive
  • Fairing Pitting on Steel
  • Chemical Anchor & Rock Bolt Adhesive
  • Grouting Reinforcement Bars
  • Grout for Swages


FEATURES
 
  • Extremely resistant to a variety of chemicals
  • Food industry suitable
  • Non sag viscosity for easy installation
  • Free of all solvents - zero VOC
  • Tough and durable
  • Suitable on steel to void fill or fair surfaces
  • Strongly adhesive for optimum adhesion

Epigen FC1 is supplied as a two part kit comprising component “A” resin, and component “B” curative.
The entire kit is supplied in a pre weighed convenient size to make on site activities easier.
 
Peerless Industrial Systems can provide information on specific applications based on industry acceptable practices or historical results.

SURFACE PREPARATION                                                  
Methods for surface preparation prior to use include using chemical means such as washing & etching, high pressure water blasting, or mechanical techniques such as abrasive blasting, grinding or scarifying.                  
Specialist advice is available from Peerless Industrial Systems to ensure the correct preparation procedure is employed for specific application.

 
                             
APPLICATION                                                    
Mixing of product should be carried out using spatula or by slow speed blender, and completed by adding to the component “A”, component “B”. Ensure the mix is homog- enous and the final colour shall be even grey without streaks.              

Bedding:
                                                     
In all cases, the depth nominally 2mm minimum should be used to ensure sufficent adhesive is in place and afford reasonable compressive strength. There is no maximum thickness requirement. No primer is required to facilite adhesion unless the surface is loose or friable.      

Adhesive Applications:
                                                   
Apply a thin coat of Epigen FC1 to both surfaces before bringing the two together. Do not use where a flexible or resilient glue line is required. Recommended where a tough and strong, or heavy shock resistant material is required (eg: Ceramic Tiles to Steel on chutes, steel onto steel, concrete onto steel).
                                                         

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
Tested at 21oC. Samples cured for 10 days at 25oC. Curing at elevated temperatures will improve chemical resistance.

CURE

Variations in cure may arise due to the amount of material being applied, the thickness of material being applied, the surface temperature, and the product temperature. The cure may be increased by heating product or by leaving mixed material stand for 15 minutes before use. The cure may be decreased by cooling the product before mixing
