Novafast 1000 liquid epoxy resin, is blended with an aggregate to produce an epoxy mortar. This can be both trowelled or set levelled to provide excellent chemical resistance and compressive strength.
Novafast 1000 is designed to be blended with both natural or coloured quartz aggregate. For troweling the aggregate should be a blend.
Novafast 1000 Flooring Series is primarily designed for the repair and protection of concrete floors in chemical food and beverage Industries.
Where concrete flooring is subjected to fats from food processing, the surface is eroded in time by acidic nature of fats. NovafastT 1000 Flooring Series will prevent this surface breakdown and contamination to the end product.
Novafast 1000 Series is suitable for and widely used by the following industries:
Due to quick curing times, Novafast provides an economical and practical alternative for repairs in factories and industrial plants during maintenance shutdowns.
|Mix Ratio:||Volume to 3% hardener|
|Cure Time:||1 hour|
|Pot Life:||15 minutes|
|UV Exposure:||Contains UV Inhibitors|

Chemical Resistance: NOVAFAST 1000 is resistant to spillage of cleaning agents, caustic solutions, oils and dilute acids. For Improved resistance to hot fats and strong solvents a seal coat of NOVAFAST 1000 is recommended.
Surface Preparation: Existing surface is cleaned, free of fats, oils and contaminants. Fats need to be removed by using an alkaline detergent wash. This is followed by an acid wash and light water blast.
Priming and Sub Fill: The working area is primed with Novafast 1000, being diluted 3:1 with methylated spirit and applied at the rate of 5-7 sqm per litre. Large holes and variations in floor levels need to be corrected using a sub fill prior to coating. For sub fill, a sand to epoxy ratio of 10:1 can be used. Larger aggregate may also be used.
Mortar Topping: Epoxy resin and hardner are mixed. Aggregate is then added to the mix and blended throroughly. The mixed material (generally 20 kg batches ) is applied to the floor using a screed bar to control topping thickness. The surface is finished by hand troweling, non skid is then cast onto the surface.
Seal Coat: Novafast 1000 resin is then coloured as per specification, is cured to the mortar topping at a rate of 3-4 sqm per litre where areas are subject to organic acid attack.
