Carbofix Coldcrete Epoxy Patch Repair System is suitable for use in the repair of worn and damaged concrete where a high strength repair material is required in cold store areas as low as – 40ºC or when temperatures do not permit the use of Palatine’s Carbofix 3k Concrete Patch Repair products. Carbofix Coldcrete Patch and Repair System can be used in food environments and is also low odour.
Carbofix Coldcrete Epoxy Patch Repair System is based on a blend of epoxy resin, curing agents and selected aggregates. All items are pre-weighed and packed, so they are ready for mixing on site. The finished material provides a non-skid and abrasive resistant surface, with good resistance to dilute acids, petrol, oil and grease.
- Good abrasion resistance
- Good chemical resistance (specific chemical resistances should be checked with our Technical Department)
- Pre-weighed packs.
Use with Epoxytread Primer if surface is in poor condition or on new, unmatured concrete.
