Description

Features

Super Ceramic Filler can be used with any of SHIMICOAT Epoxy or Sealer products offering the following features and benefits:

Features Benefits
Cost reduction Over 7% savings on resin, due to optimised surface area to volume ratio.
Super Low Density Blended products are lighter and more efficient , easier to apply and non-sagging.
Improved Rheology Less than 100micron in size engineered spherical structure, offering massive surface contact, easy to roll-on in matric and flow.
Triple Applications Crack Repair & Filler Materials
Screeding, Leveling and Surface Maintenance
SlipRes Slip Resistant Floors

In addition to above, Super Ceramic offers the following benefits:

  • Non-Sagging Filler Materials
  • Engineered for high compression strength and high-pressure resistance
  • Improved wear and abrasion resistance resulting from hardness and ceramic composition of Slip Resistant materials
  • Enhanced acoustic properties owing to its capacity to absorb sound and vibration within the Epoxy matrix
  • Improved Fire Rating performance due to its non-combustible nature and super high temperature melting point materials used within the body of Epoxy
  • Colour-fast and superior gloss retention due to spheres being uniformly being coated with Epoxy and naturally rising, surfacing and positioning over the top surface
  • Ideal Epoxy Coating over the spheres outer layer, due to the surface tension.

  • Improve ware and abrasion resistant of finished surface.
  • Inert, Non-Reactive non-absorbent with all resins.
  • Ideally suitable with single or dual pack resin systems
  • Triple Applications:
    • Crack Repair & Filler Materials
    • Screeding, Leveling and Surface Maintenance
    • SlipRes Slip Resistant Floors
  • Very easy to use and apply
  • Fire and thermal Resistance (up to 1,800øC)
  • Chemical Resistant (Acid, Alkali and Solvents)
  • Acoustic & Noise Insulation
  • Easy match to any d‚cor ‘off-white colour’
  • Colour and gloss retention
  • Environmentally friendly containing inert inorganic composition
  • Economical.

Usage

Crack Repair: Twice as much as resin quantity (200% by volume)
Screeding: Same quantity as resin used (100% by volume)
SlipRes: 10% (by Volume) of the quantity of resin used.

Preparation

Clean and dry surface. Ensure surface to be coated is free of all dirt, grease, oil, paint, curing agents and other contaminants. Removal of Oil Contamination by degreaser and alkaline cleaning pressure wash.
Acid-wash to enhanced surface porosity and etch the surface

Ensure moisture free surface. Allow to completely dry, run Dry Test. Place a piece of plastic over a small area, tape the edges and leave for 1 hour. Remove plastic, if there is no moisture on either surface, concrete is sufficiently dry.

Ideally, always consider surface grinding and removal of loose materials. Grinding is always advisable prior to application of all Shimicoat Epoxy products, to maximize adhesion.

For further information, please refer to SHIMICOAT Instruction for ‘Surface Preparations’.

Application

Crack Repair:
Use any of SHIMICOAT Clear Epoxy Resins, mix at correct ratios and add Super Ceramic Filler twice as much as resin, at a rate of 200%. Mix for 2-3 minutes and apply to your surface within curing time-frame of Epoxy product used.

For example, if using Ultra Clear Epoxy, add 1.0Lt of Part B (Curing Agent) into 2.0Lt of Part A (Resin), mix for 2-3minutes and add 6.0Lt (2.7Kg) of Super Ceramic Filler. If necessary, add EpoSeal Diluent at a rate of 5% to smoothen the paste.

Screeding:
Use any of SHIMICOAT Epoxy Resins, mix at correct ratios and add Super Ceramic Filler same quantity as resin, at a rate of 100%. Mix for 2-3 minutes and apply to your surface within curing time-frame of Epoxy product used.

For example, if using Premium Tinted Epoxy, add 1.0Lt of Part B (Curing Agent) into 3.0Lt of Part A (Resin), mix for 2-3minutes and add 4Lt (1.8Kg) of Super Ceramic Filler, mix for another 2-3minutes. Apply within half an hour before it cures. If necessary, add EpoSeal Diluent at a rate of 5% to smoothen the paste.

SlipRes:
Use any of SHIMICOAT Epoxy Resins, mix at correct ratios and add Super Ceramic Filler at a rate of 10% by volume. Mix for 2-3 minutes and apply to your surface by roller or brush within curing time-frame of Epoxy product used.

For example, if using Premium Tinted Epoxy, add 1.0Lt of Part B (Curing Agent) into 3.0Lt of Part A (Resin), mix for 2-3minutes and add 300mL (135gr) of Super Ceramic Filler, mix for another 2-3minutes. Apply within half an hour before it cures. If necessary, add EpoSeal Diluent at a rate of 5% to smoothen the paste.

Direction

Super Ceramic Filler has three distinctive applications:
NO Application Usage Direction
1 Crack Repair Twice as much as resin quantity (200% by volume) Trawl and fill the crack.
Let it cure over-night (8-16 Hours depending on temperature)
Sand and Clear Up, to get the surface ready for Coating Application.
2 Screeding Same quantity as resin used
(100% by volume) Screed over the entire floor.
Smooth off using trawl or squeegee.
Let it cure over night (8-16 Hours depending on temperature).
3 SlipRes 10% (by Volume) of
the quantity of resin used Add to your resin.
Mix and apply using roller or squeegee.
Continuously mix to ensure ideal suspension, as SlipRes Super Ceramic may float to the surface over time.
Let it cure over-night (8-16 Hours depending on temperature)

Super Ceramic enhances the performance of Epoxy matrix by improving compression strength, density and specific gravity reduction, improved rheological characteristics, increased thermal and fire rating properties and ultimately, Slip Resistant attributes.

Super Ceramic provides major functional benefits and added values through enhanced performance of surface coating beyond non-slip properties:
1. Durability,
2. Easy cleaning feature, Easy Mop, Easy Wipe.
3. Enhanced Mechanical and chemical resistant properties,
4. Fire resistant properties,
Mixing:

  • Prepare Epoxy mix by adding appropriate quantity of Curing Agent (Part B) into the resin (part B).
  • Mix thoroughly for 2-3 minutes manual or with mechanical mixer at low speed (750rmp Max).
  • Add the correct quantity of Super Ceramic materials (depending on your application) and mix for extra 1-2min to ensure complete suspension of particles into the epoxy matrix.
  • Apply to the surface and use well within curing time.

Crack Repair: Twice as much as resin quantity (200% by volume)
Screeding: Same quantity as resin used (100% by volume)
SlipRes: 10% (by Volume) of the quantity of resin used.
