Description

Epoxy-resin concrete bonding agent for bonding new cementitious materials to existing cementitious surfaces, available in standard and slow-setting grades. For use on horizontal surfaces and on vertical surfaces where mortar or concrete can be supported by formwork.

Ideal for extensions and repairs to concrete in factories, loading bays, trucking aisles, bridges, roads, bonded or granolithic floor toppings.

Advantages:

  • Can be applied to dry or damp surfaces.
  • High mechanical strength.
  • Good positive adhesion.
  • Can be applied where a substrate/ repair barrier is required.

Standard product features

Composition:

Based on solvent-free epoxy resins containing pigments and fine fillers. It is supplied as a two-part material in pre-weighed quantities ready for on- site mixing and use. Coloured components, white base and green hardener, provide visual evidence that adequate mixing is achieved.

Performance:

Results for Nitrobond EP Standard, 20°C at seven days:

  • Compressive strength (BS 6319-2): 50 N/mm².
  • Flexural strength (BS 6319-3): 35 N/mm².
  • Tensile strength (BS 6319-7): 20 N/mm².
  • Slant shear bond (BS 6319-4): 25 N/mm².
  • Adhesive strength to concrete: In general the bond will always exceed the tensile strength of the concrete.
