EPX Primer

Two-Component Solvent-Free Epoxy Based Primer

EPX Primer is a two-component, solvent-free, low-viscosity epoxy-based primer used on concrete / timber columns & beams to increase the adherence for strengthening systems of ticm Carbon Fabric and ticm EPX FRP or ticm Carbon Plate and ticm EPX CP.

Application Details
  • The ambient temperature should be between 15-30°C during the application.
  • Prior to the application of EPX Primer, the surface of the structural elements (beam, column, etc.) should be free of debris, all cracks should be repaired with ticm RPM 40. At debut, EPX Primer should be applied to the surface, then ticm EPX FRP or ticm EPX CP, after that ticm Carbon Fabric or ticm Carbon Plate should be placed over the surface.
  • The consumption rate may vary depending on the surface conditions
Areas of Usage
  • Strengthening of damaged buildings or structures.
  • Strengthening of structural elements.
  • Improving the earthquake performance by providing an enhancement on the load bearing capacity.
  • Damaged structures, old reinforced concrete buildings where the steel bars are getting corroded.
  • Strengthening of the buildings, bridges, domes and other structures with ticm Carbon Fabric or ticm Carbon Plate.
