WHERE TO USE
Epoxy.com Product #26HP is used to seat and support reciprocating machinery and other equipment where heavy loads, impact, torque and other operating stresses occur. Typical applications include:
Mixing ratio of Epoxy.com Product #26HP Resin only - 100 A to 16 B by weight
Proper preparation of the substrate and the contact area of the base plate is essential. Substrate must be both clean and sound. Remove laitance, oils and grease from concrete by sandblasting or bush hammering. If possible, sandblast bottom of base plates and wipe clean and dry. Apply grout as soon as possible after cleaning steel surfaces to prevent recurrence of oxidation. (If corrosion resistant primer for steel base plate edges or top surface is required, use Epoxy.com Product # 1200 - Epoxy Zinc Rich Primer.)
Initial mix temperature must be 50°F minimum. For best performance, mix entire pack. Pour B Component into pail of A component. Mix for two (2) minutes with low speed mixer until uniform. Scrape sides and bottom to ensure complete mixing, avoid entrapping air. Slowly add filler while continuing to mix resin until all is added or desired consistency. Mix additional one (1) minute and place grout.
If less than full unit is required, carefully measure 100 parts Component A and 16 parts Component B by weight and add desired amount of filler. Do not thin Epoxy.com Product #26HP. Solvent will prevent proper cure, and may cause shrinkage.
Construct containing form with head box, if necessary. Any form surface in contact with Epoxy.com Product #26HP must be coated with release agent. Seal forms tightly to prevent leakage. Leakage that causes grout in place to subside below plate bottom level will cause loss of contact and voids at grout/base plate bottom interface. Re-establishing complete contact will be difficult at best. Be certain that all tools and mixing materials are at hand prior to mixing of Epoxy.com Product #26HP.
Mix Epoxy.com Product #26HP in accordance with mixing instructions. Pour grout into form from one side only. Pour continuously while maintaining a minimum of one (1) inch of head above the base plate bottom until grout appears full width of the base plate at opposite side of the form. Continue pouring at a reduced rate until Epoxy.com Product #26HP levels at 1/4" above the plate bottom on all sides. Clean equipment with MEK, Xylene, or similar solvent before Epoxy.com Product #26HP hardens. If placement depth exceeds three (3) inches, contact Epoxy.com Technical Service for assistance.
