Staroxy 101 SB

Solvent Based Epoxy Primer

Staroxy 101 SB


Staroxy 101 SB is a two-component amine cured solvent borne epoxy coating. It is a self-smoothing, easy to apply product, leaving a seamless surface. It has excellent chemical, abrasion, corrosion and impact resistance. If enhanced slip resistance is required Stanrose Antiskid can be used in the system. Can be applied directly in two coats or on approved primers depending on the conditions of the concrete substrate.


Designed for a wide range of surfaces with various levels of mechanical and chemical exposure. Recommended for warehouses structures, garages, dairies, factories, laboratories, aircraft hangars, food, beverage and plant rooms.


Staroxy 101 SB coatings provide optimum protection against abrasion, turbulence, corrosive fluids and extreme temperatures. Epoxy coating is not only durable, but also resistant to many corrosive substances. Epoxies are a top choice for many industrial coating applications, including steel, metal, concrete, and more.
Some of the many benefits of epoxy coatings include:
• Durability
• Non-Toxic
• Clean & Easy to Maintain
• Weather Resistant
• Impact Resistant.
• Chemical Resistant

Directions for Use

Substrate Requirements:
• To secure lasting adhesion to the subsequent product all surfaces shall be clean, dry and free from any contamination. Substrates Temperatures must be a minimum of 55-60°F. and a maximum of 85°F.
• Laitance deposits are best removed by Planetary diamond disc grinder or by captive blasting followed by vacuum cleaning to remove dust debris.
• Substrate must be clean and free of Dirt, waxes, curing agents and any other foreign material that will interfere with bonding.

Surface preparation:
Remove oil, grease and any other contaminants using thinner. Blast clean to minimum Sa 2½ (Swedish standard SIS 05 5900). If blasting is not practically possible, make full use of mechanical tools to remove loose rust and scale to St.2 Swedish standard. Surface should be clean and dry before application of Staroxy 101 SB. New concrete or cementitious substrates should have been placed at least 28 days and have a moisture content of less than 5% before topping with Staroxy 101 SB.
After surface is dry, all repair work like sealing of joints, crack filling of cavities and crevices should be carried out.
If the surface is Tremix or smooth surface then Shot Blasting is carried out to make the surface rough in order to enhance the bonding of the primer.
Concrete defects such as voids, bug holes, excess porosity, and physical and chemical damage are usually filled or repaired prior to the installation of the F/C system. (Materials such as slurries, mortars, and polymer concrete are used to level, smooth and patch concrete surfaces.

The laitance (A thin, weak, brittle layer of cement and aggregate on concrete surface) on in-situ bases and any surface sealer or curing membrane should be entirely removed by suitable mechanized equipment, e.g. shot- blasting, panning or grinding, to expose cleanly the coarse aggregate
Mixing and Application:
1. Pack components are pre-weighed for optimum performance. Never split packs.
2. Stir resin thoroughly and then mix two parts of resin with one part of hardener by volume. Empty contents of Resin into a mixing container and pre-mix to assure the suspension of solids. Stir resin thoroughly and then mix two parts of resin with one part of hardener by volume.
3. Add Hardner and continue to mix to a uniform consistency for 1-2 minutes.
4. Mix with slow speed drill or manually depending on the quantity in mixing bucket and helical spinner head for 2 minutes.
5. Spread the mixture on the floor immediately and allow it to dry for 4 hours.

Method of Application
Primer is normally spread with a brush, floor squeegee or roller and back-rolled with a 3/8" medium nap roller. Care should be taken to minimize the entrapment of air caused by over rolling.

Packaging Size, Storage and Shelf Life
