Chemical Resistant Coating – Epoxy HB – Rapid Cure

CPR 608 – Chemical Resistant Coating – Epoxy HB – Rapid Cure is a two-pack Epoxy coating which provides protective and decorative properties to concrete, steel and other substrates. The material is supplied as a two-pack system, comprising pre-weighed amounts of BASE and CURING AGENT. After mixing together, an easily applied chemical and abrasion resistant finish is produced with fast curing characteristics.

Typical Properties

  • Rapid Cure
  • Solvent free, low odour
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • Excellent adhesion to concrete and steel
  • High build
  • Tough and durable
  • Easily applied
  • Hygienic and easily cleaned
  • Slip resistant options
  • Range of colours

Direction for Use

Surface Preparations Concrete

  • Concrete shall be a minimum of 21 days old and/or the residual moisture content shall be below 6%.
  • Ensure that the concrete is clean and free from dust, laitance, grease, oil, curing compound and existing paint finishes, etc.
  • Blow holes and defective concrete shall be made good using a proprietary repair compound e.g. CPR 716 Concrete Patch Repair Mortar – Rapid Cure – Epoxy.
  • Using a suitable mechanical treatment such as vacuum grit blasting is the preferred treatment prior to application as this ensures a mechanical ‘key’ for the coating.
  • A primer coat of CPR 402 – Concrete Primer – Epoxy WB – Rapid Cure, @ 0.2kg/m², is recommended for absorbent concrete surfaces.
  • Allow to dry for a minimum of 2 hours @ 20°C prior to overcoating.

Surface Preparations Steel

  • Steel surfaces shall be shot blasted or grit blasted to a nominal Sa 2.5 Swedish standard.
  • All dust and grease shall be removed prior to coating application.
  • If a delay is likely to occur between blasting and application then it is recommended that a coat of CPR 410 – Metal Primer – Epoxy WB is applied as holding primer to obviate flash rusting.


  • Pour the contents of the CURING AGENT container into the BASE container and thoroughly mix, preferably by mechanical means until a uniform colour is achieved.


  • Apply by brush, or roller at a nominal rate of 0.25 to 0.3kg/m².
  • After a minimum of 4 hours and before a maximum of 24 hours, apply a second coat at the same rate.
  • Should a non-slip finish be required, then broadcast an appropriate Quartz or other aggregate immediately after the first coat.
  • Allow to cure.
  • Brush off excess aggregate immediately prior to applying the second coat.


  • Allow to cure for a minimum of 4 hours @ 20°C prior to light foot traffic access and 10 hours @ 20° prior to vehicular trafficking.
  • 3 days cure @ 20°C is recommended prior to exposure to chemicals.
  • Lower temperatures will extend the curing time.

Equipment Cleaning


  • Do not apply to wet or uncured concrete surfaces.
  • Do not apply at temperatures of 3°C or less.


  • A 5kg pack is sufficient to treat 8.3-10.0 m2 of surface with the recommended two coat treatment, providing an overall d.f.t. of 400-450 microns.
