Description

POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING is a low temperature / faster cure version of our POXI-ROCK FLOORING. It is a 2 component, 100% solids epoxy binder resin to be blended with ROCKTRED aggregates to create a trowel grade mortar that can be applied down to 40 degrees F. POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING meets all USDA guidelines for use in federally inspected facilities.

 

Uses

POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING is used to create resurfacing epoxy mortar overlays, for repairing non-moving joints, cracks and spalls in concrete floors and for installing hand formed cove base, ramping and slopes in floors. It is formulated for easy hand or power trowel applications in work areas between 40° - 60° F or for use above 60° F when a fast cure is desired. May also be used as a low temp primer or self-priming coating.

 

Typical Coverage

POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING will cover approximately 25 sq. ft. at a ¼ inch thickness when 0.75 mixed gallons of liquids are combined with 50 lbs. of trowel grade aggregate. When used neat typical coverage is between 125 – 150 sq. ft. per gallon.

Limitations & For Best Results

  • Do not thin this product.
  • Do not apply when humidity exceeds 70% indoors.
  • Do not allow to puddle during application.
  • Allow each coat to dry to tack-free or clear prior to re-coat.
  • When re-coating, always apply the next coat within 24 hours of completing the previous coat.
  • Mortar should be installed at a minimum 1/8” thickness.
  • Pre-condition the liquids and aggregate to the application temperature prior to using in a cold area.
 

Product Application

Install mortar mix over wet prime coat of the same material. Finish using a steel hand or power trowel. ROCK-TRED product test data is based on environmental temperatures of 75° F. Viscosity and working time are always affected by temperatures above or below that mark. When applying product always consider the ambient, surface, and product temperature at the time and place of installation.

 

Color and Textures

POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING is manufactured in Amber/Clear and can be pigmented using ROCK-TRED Universal Colorants. When pigmenting a 100 lbs. mix of POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING aggregate mortar use ½ BAG-PAK of Universal Colorant. Dark colors work best to color an aggregate mortar. 

 

Chemical Resistance

Always refer to ROCK-TRED’s chemical resistance chart for specific information on each product / system or contact ROCK-TRED directly.

 

Product Storage

DO NOT allow ROCK-TRED products to freeze. All ROCK-TRED products should be properly stored above the floor on pallets or shelves, and in an area that has a constant minimum temperature of 50°F.

 

Surface Preparation

Always apply ROCK-TRED products to a clean / sound substrate that is free of laitance, grease, oils, debris, and curing compounds. Concrete substrates should be cured for a minimum of 28 days prior to application of product [except as otherwise noted on the individual Product Data Sheet]. Whenever possible, remove existing coatings and/or flooring systems completely; if complete removal is not possible always perform tests to determine adhesion and compatibility to the existing flooring. Mechanical preparation by means of a shotblasting or diamond grinding machine to a minimum CSP-3 profile followed by wet priming with POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING liquids is the best and recommended installation method for POXI-ROCK LT FLOORING mortar applications. If the substrate is not properly prepared and the appropriate profile is not achieved, failure of the product to adhere to the substrate may occur.

 

Clean Up

Application tools and equipment can be cleaned with soap and water immediately after use, or with solvent once the product has begun to cure.

 

Disposal

Product containers will contain product residue and must be disposed of properly. Label warnings must be observed at all times. All containers must be disposed in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations.

 

Important Notice

Always read and acquaint yourself with ROCK-TRED’s Product Data Sheet, SDS [safety data sheet], and product labels for each individual product prior to mixing and prior to use. For further assistance, product questions, additional information and/or unexpected or unusual installation conditions – contact your Area Sales Representative or ROCK-TRED directly for recommendations. Kit components are pre-measured for optimal performance. Catalyzation errors due to incorrect mixing in the field voids product warranty.
