Patching and Coating With Epoxy.com Products at and Below the Water Line

Q: I am looking for a material that I can use to patch and coat a concrete seawall.  I need to repair areas where the salt damage has eaten away
the concrete, and protect the rest of the surfaces. The area I need to do is in the tidal zone.  I can clean up the concrete, dry it up (if I
need to) and apply the a material  during low tide, but the product will need to be either very fast setting or be able to cure under water when
the tide comes in.  What do you recommend?

Norm Lambert: First you will want to do good surface prepartion – www.epoxy.com/surfaceprep.aspx. Then you will want to use Epoxy.com Product #707 Splash Zone Coating and Underwater Paste is a moisture-insensitive, two-component, 100% solids epoxy-resin system. When mixed at a 1:1 ratio, by volume, this product produces a paste-like material that is ideal for protection or restoration of concrete, steel and timber piles and other structural elements in marine environments. It will easily do what you are looking to do and a whole lot more as well.

 Epoxy.com Product #707 Splash Zone Coating and Underwater Paste has a long pot-life, and is available in a
fast Cure.  Epoxy.com Product #707 Splash Zone Coating and Underwater Paste can be hand applied, above, at or below the water line. 
It resists wave action and will even bond to wet surfaces.

What Epoxy for a Mechanical Room Floor.

August 18, 2010

I have a concrete mechanical room floor that I want to install a waterproof coating over. It has areas under it that I do not want to get wet. Due to the vibration I want to be sure we have good crack isolation for the concrete floor as well as being waterproof. Which Epoxy.com Coating System do you recommend?

Norm Lambert:

1.Prepare the concrete properly – www.epoxysystems.com/surfaceprep.aspx.

2. If there are any random cracks, repair them with Epoxy.com Product #685 – www.epoxysystems.com/685.htm MMA Polymer Crack Healer & Sealer. This material will weld the cracks back together structurally, making it as though the cracks never happened.

3. Fill any saw cut relieve joints with Epoxy.com Product #11 – www.epoxysystems.com/11.htm 100% Solids Epoxy Joint Filler.

4. Cold joints can be saw-cut and filled with Epoxy.com Product #11.  If cold joints are large enough, saw cutting may be optional.  Or if the cold joints are to be non-moving you can fill them with Epoxy.com Product #685.

5. Install 1 coat of Epoxy.com Product #899 –  www.epoxysystems.com/899.aspx  –  100% Solids Low-Mod Low Viscosity Zero (0) VOC Epoxy Primer at a rate of 250-300 SF per gallon per coat. Allow to dry overnight.

6. Install 2 coats of Epoxy.com Product #32 –www.epoxysystems.com/32.aspx – Epoxy.com Product #32 100% Solids Flexible Epoxy Membrane – Crack Isolation Epoxy. Allow to dry overnight after both coats.

7. Install 2 coats of Epoxy.com Product #2 – www.epoxy.com/2.htm – 100% Solids Epoxy Based Chemical Resistant Coating with an optional Epoxy Product#50 (small) or Product #51 (large) Anti-Skid additive. Epoxy.com Product#50 and #51 are polypropylene beads that mix with your Product #2 to produce the desired Anti-skid.
