Effective adhesion and repair solutions for flooring systems
MAPEI introduces Mapefloor™ I 900, a two-component, epoxy resin, as well as Mapefloor EP 19 and Mapefloor EP 20, which are three-component, epoxy binders. All three of these new products are designed for use with industrial flooring.
Mapefloor I 900 is a low-viscosity epoxy resin that is used as a primer before the application of resinous flooring systems. “Mapefloor I 900 is also very effective at priming absorbant concrete substrates,” said Shane Edwards, Product Line Manager for Industrial Flooring. “It has [good] chemical and mechanical resistance, and enhances the bond of multilayer resinous flooring systems.”
Mapefloor EP 19 is a three-component, epoxy binder that features excellent chemical and mechanical resistance. “[Mapefloor] EP 19 has been specially designed to enhance the adhesion of multilayer flooring systems, such as MAPEI’s Mapefloor EP 20 and Mapefloor I 302 SL,” Edwards said. It provides leveling for floors with a slight slope and can be used to fill in hollow spots or in areas with deteriorated concrete.
Mapefloor EP 20 is a three-component, epoxy binder with excellent chemical and mechanical resistance; similar to Mapefloor EP 19, it is designed to enhance the adhesion of multilayer flooring systems. “[Mapefloor] EP 20 is typically applied on concrete substrates that require re-profiling and can be applied on vertical substrates,” Edwards said.
All three products are excellent for interior use in industrial settings, including institutional buildings, storage and logistical areas, and wet and dry processing areas.
