FERROLIT 105 is a very fluid two‐component epoxy resin system with a modified amine hardener which is used for firmly closing cracks and pores.
Can be worked for a long period of time
Has highly penetrative properties on account of its low viscosity
Excellent colour deepening effect
Transparent and pale
Good grinding and polishing properties
Increases the firmness and improves the quality of natural stone surfaces
Increases the yield and the productivity
Colour - Transparent, pale
Density - Component A - 1.13 g/cm³
Consumption - approx. 100 ‐ 200 g/m²
Working time at varying temperatures and 125 g:
15°C: ‐ approx. 3‐4 hours
20°C: ‐ approx. 2 hours
30°C: ‐ approx. 1 hour
Hardening time for stone slabs which have been pre‐warmed to the given temperatures:
20°C: approx. 2 days
30°C: approx. 1 day
Field of Application:
FERROLIT 105 is mainly used in the stone‐working industry for strengthening porous and fissured natural stone slabs, concrete and concrete ashlars where a colour deepening effect is required.
The hardened product shows only a minimal tendency to yellow if exposed to ultraviolet light or to warmth.
Instructions for Use:
The stone slabs which are to be treated must be pre‐calibrated according to their nominal thickness and must be clean and dry.
Four parts by weight of component A are to be thoroughly mixed with one part by weight of component B (e.g. 100 g and 25 g) until the mixture is free of streaks. Alternatively, seven parts by volume of Component A are to be mixed with two parts by volume of Component B (e.g. 175 ml and 50 ml).
The mixture remains workable for approx. 2 hours at 20°C and is applied to the whole surface with a fine‐toothed spreader; apply more than once in the event of larger fissures or areas of greater absorption. Close continuous fissures on the rear side before application.
The surfaces can be ground and polished after approx. 2 days at room tempera‐ true.
The contact pressure of the grinding and polishing segments should be maximum 1 to 1.5 bar.
Tools can be cleaned with universal thinners.
Warmth accelerates and cold retards the hardening process.
Empty the container fully before disposing it off.
The optimal mechanical and chemical properties can only be attained by adhering to the exact mixing proportions; excess adhesive or hardener has the effect of a plasticizer.
Depending on the type of stone the treated surfaces may deepen the colour to a greater or lesser extent. Colour deepening may be more noticeable in the fissured area. Therefore, it is advisable to try on a testing area.
Component A and B must be taken from their containers with separate receptacles.
The resin is no longer to be used when it is already thickened or gelling.
Optimum surfaces can only be achieved by using high‐quality grinding and polishing segments.
The product is not to be used at temperatures below 15°C because it will not sufficiently harden.
The hardened resin can no longer be removed by means of solvents, only mechanically or by applying higher temperatures (> 200°C).
If the resin has been correctly worked it presents no hazard to health when the hardening process is completed.
Approx. 1 year under cool conditions in the firmly closed original container.
