Monarseal 322

What is Monarseal 322 V?

Monarseal 322 V is a high performance, water dispersible epoxy coating for the treatment of floors and walls. During application, Monarseal 322 is designed to be user and environmentally friendly so contains no solvents and has a very low odour. You can apply Monarseal 322 easily by either brush, roller or airless spray. This provides a decorative, abrasion and chemically resistant coating which has excellent durability

As well as these factors, Monarseal 322 is resistant to water, oils, Skydrol, dilute acids etc. This epoxy resin is also a hygienic resin and can be easily cleaned and sanitised. 

Advantages

  • You can apply it to dry or damp surfaces process
  • Available in a range of colours
  • Low odour
  • Excellent resistance to water, oils, Skydrol, petrol, dilute acids and alkalies and many solvents
  • Very good adhesion to concrete
  • Hygienic and easily cleaned

Recommended Uses

  • Floor coating in food factories, abattoirs, dairies, laboratories etc.
  • Chemically resistant coating for bund areas.
  • Anti-graffiti coating.
  • Hygienic, easily cleanable surface on walls, ceilings etc.

Surface Preparation

Ensure that the concrete is clean and free from dust, laitance, grease, oil, curing compound, existing paint finishes, etc. Blow holes and defective concrete shall be made good using a proprietary repair compound e.g. MONARCH EP mortar. Suitable mechanical treatment such as vacuum grit blasting, or chemical treatment such as acid etching is recommended to ensure a clean, uncontaminated surface.

Mixing

Pour the contents of the BASE component into the CURING AGENT container and mix by mechanical means until uniform colour and appearance are obtained. The mixed material may be thinned by the addition of up to a maximum of 5% by volume of potable water.

Application

Apply by brush, roller or airless spray to the prepared surface at a nominal rate of 0.20 to 0.25 kg/m² per coat, equivalent to a dry film thickness of 100 – 125 microns. A minimum two coat treatment is recommended, applying subsequent coats after a minimum interval of 18 hours curing. Ensure good ventilation after application, as this speeds up the physical drying stage of the curing process.

Note: For absorbent surfaces, it is recommended that a priming coat of Monarprime, be applied at a nominal rate of 0.20 kg/M², prior to the coating application.

Should a non-slip finish be required, a suitable silica sand should be scattered onto the first coat of Monarseal 322 V whilst still wet. The following day any excess sand may be swept from the surface using a clean brush prior to application of the second coat.

Equipment Cleaning

Clean all equipment with a suitable solvent prior to curing of the resin.

Curing

Allow to cure for a minimum of 24 hours @ 20°C prior to foot traffic, and for a minimum of 48 hours prior to normal traffic. Full chemical resistance will be achieved following 7 days cure @ 20°C.

Packaging

Monarseal 322 V is supplied in 5 kg and 10 kg packs.

Coverage

A 5 kg pack is sufficient to treat 10 – 12.5 Sq.mtr. of the surface with the recommended two coat treatment, giving an overall dry film thickness of 200 – 250 microns. (10 kg pack pro rata).

Storage and Shelf Life

Store in dry, frost-free conditions, at temperatures between 10°C and 25°C. Monarseal 322 V has a minimum shelf life of 12 months when stored in original, unopened containers in accordance with manufacturers instructions.

Limitations

Do not apply to wet or uncured concrete surfaces. Do not apply at temperatures of 3°C or less. In poorly ventilated areas forced extraction must be provided.
