Product preparation

PLAST-EPO can be mixed by hand or with a low speed mixer:

  • open the main pack, which contains component A besides the pot of component B;
  • Open the pot of component B and pour it into component A;
  • mix the two components until a uniform grey colour mixture is obtained;
  • a smaller amount of a full pack can be mixed, if abiding by the 1:1 cross-linking ratio both by volume and by weight;
  • while mixing PLAST-EPO, it must be kept in mind that its pot life (see the Specifications table) decreases when the temperature and the amount of mixed product increase.
Product application

As a filler:

  • thoroughly clean the surface to be filled by removing any loose bodies by brushing, sanding or grinding;
  • thoroughly de-dust the area to be treated;
  • apply PLAST-EPO with a flat putty knife;
  • remove as much as possible all existing product burrs;
  • Wait at least 24 hours before sanding.


As an adhesive:

  • remove all brittle coatings or paint from the surfaces to be bonded by chemical stripping and / or brushing, sanding or grinding;
  • all rust or oxides must be removed from metal surfaces by brushing and / or sanding. Blasting (purity grade Sa 2 ½) can also be performed according to ISO 8501-1 or SIS055900;
  • apply a PLAST-EPO layer to both surfaces to be bonded making sure that the product penetrates well into roughness;
  • hold for at least 2 hours;


In combination with NORDSEAL TAPE:

  • make the housing for NORDSEAL TAPE joint cover ready and perfectly dedust it;
  • rub NORDSEAL TAPE with a clean cloth soaked in TILEPUR BASEso as to remove the dust;
  • allow a few minutes for NORDPROM to dry and then fill all the housing with PLAST-EPO and let the NORDSEAL TAPE joint cover adhere over the wet product.
