Sub-Zero Deck Paint – MMA
CPR 824 – Sub-Zero Deck Paint is a three-pack Methacrylate resin system, modified to impart toughness, resilience and waterproofing properties to the cured membrane. It has the additional feature of curing at very low, sub-zero temperatures.
The abrasion and impact resistance, together with the low-temperature flexibility and excellent adhesion to concrete and steel make CPR 824 ideal for use as a membrane subjected to vehicular traffic. By broadcasting a layer of suitable aggregate, a slip-resistant surface can easily be achieved.
- Ultra-fast curing characteristics, particularly good performance in sub-zero environments
- Tough resilient, and highly durable
- Range of slip and skid-resistant finishes
- Resistant to oil, petrol, diesel and many industrial chemicals
- Flexible and abrasion-resistant
- Colour options to allow easy differentiation of specific areas e.g. walkways and parking bays in different colours
- Suitable for indoor and outdoor surfaces
Directions for Use
- Concrete surfaces 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.
- Blowholes and defective concrete shall be made good using a proprietary repair compound e.g. CPR 711 – MMA Concrete Patch Repair Mortar.
- Suitable mechanical treatment, such as vacuum grit blasting, is the preferred treatment prior to application as this ensures a mechanical ‘key’ that will optimise adhesion.
- Steel surfaces shall be shot blasted or grit blasted to a nominal Sa 2.5 Swedish Standard and to provide a medium blast profile.
- All dust shall be removed prior to coating application.
- A coat of CPR 412 – MMA Metal Primer shall be applied as soon as practicable after blasting, in order to obviate the possible occurrence of ‘flash rusting’.
- Concrete surfaces shall be primed with a coat of CPR 406 – MMA Concrete Primer, applied by brush, or roller, at a nominal rate of 0.3kg/m².
- Long nap lambswool rollers are recommended for primer application.
- Allow the primer to cure for a minimum of 40 minutes.
- Steel surfaces shall be primed with CPR 412 – MMA Metal Primer.
- CPR 824 Sub-Zero Deck Paint is supplied as a three-pack material consisting of the BASE component, and the CATALYST component and the FILLER component.
- Add the CATALYST component to the BASE component and mix thoroughly, preferably by mechanical means for a minimum of 2 minutes.
- Pour the contents into a mixing vessel and add the FILLER component whilst stirring.
- A low-speed drill with paddle attachment may be used or else a forced action mixer e.g. Creteangle type.
- Pour the mixed material onto the prepared and pre-primed surface and apply by serrated trowel to the desired thickness.
- De-aerate the material by spike rollering.
- Within 5 minutes, broadcast the appropriate aggregate at a nominal rate of 6kg – 15kg/m².
- When cured, sweep off excess aggregate.
- The application of a clear sealer coat is recommended to reduce the tendency towards staining and dirt pick up, and thereby ensure optimum ease of cleaning where required.
- Apply a roller coat of CPR 907 – MMA Clear Sealer or CPR 825 – MMA Colour Stable Coating at a nominal rate of 0.3 – 0.5kg/m² and allow to cure for a minimum of 2 hours prior to putting back into service.
- A second coat may be necessary where large Aggregate has been used as scatter.
- Clean equipment with CPR 200 – MMA Tool Clean Solvent immediately after use.
- Light Foot Traffic: 1 hour @ 20°C
- Full chemical resistance: 24 hours @ 20°C
Storage and Shelf Life
- Store in dry conditions, out of direct sunlight, at temperatures between 10°C and 20°C.
- Adequate ventilation of the storage area should be provided.
- Keep container tightly closed when not in use CPR 824 – Sub-Zero Deck Paint has a minimum shelf life of 6 months when stored in original, unopened containers in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
- CPR 824 – Sub-Zero Deck Paint is supplied in 20kg packs
- A 20kg pack is sufficient to cover an area of 2.8m² at a thickness of 4mm.
- Colour: Grey and Black as standard (any BS4800 or RAL colour can be supplied upon request)
- Pot life @ 20°C: 25 Minutes
- Thickness: Minimum 3mm, maximum 8mm
- Tensile strength: 6MPa @ 20°C
- Elongation at break: 180% @ 20°C
- Temperature range during application: -30°C* to + 40°C
- Temperature range during service: -40°C to + 60°C
- Chemical resistance: Excellent resistance to dilute acids and alkalis, oil, petrol, diesel, vegetable oils, and fruit juices.
- Refer to our Technical Department for advice.
- Do not apply to wet, uncured or unprimed concrete surfaces.
- CPR 824 – Sub-Zero Deck Coat will taint food during application so that all foodstuffs in the immediate vicinity must be removed or properly covered.
Health and Safety
- CPR 824 – Sub-Zero Deck Coat is flammable during application so that adequate safety precautions should be observed.
