Step by step install of Vebro Polymers materials in a warehouse dilapidation
Step by step install of Vebro Polymers materials in a warehouse dilapidation

We’re on site at a warehouse dilapidations project, seeing the step by step installation of vebrores EP HBC in this end-of-tenancy transformation. 

First, a quick intro to vebrores EP HBC… 

vebrores EP HBC comprises two coats of vebro EP Universal applied over a prepped and primed, level concrete or screeded substrate. 

The 100% solids epoxy high-build system is designed for industrial applications where daily wear, impact and chemical attack, as well as heavy traffic, are expected.

Onto the install… 

Important note: While the installation shown here follows the standard application steps in the model specification for vebrores EP HBC, Vebro Polymers works with a network of highly skilled applicator partners who experienced in the installation of high-build epoxy coating systems, and can tackle more tricky application scenarios with ease, such as low temperature install conditions, substrates with high moisture content or additional substrate preparation requirements. 

After mixing vebro EP Universal Part A for two minutes, using a helical spinner at a slow speed, Part B is added into the container and the materials are blended for a further two minutes, ensuring no air bubbles are formed during the process. 

After mixing, the combined units should then be immediately checked to ensure the materials are of a suitable application temperature. Ideally, this should be between 15–20°C, but temperatures as low as 5°C can work. 

In the video, the temperature is shown as 8°C — the applicator here is using vebrores EP HBC LTC which is the low temperature cure alternative system. 

The material is then applied over the substrate — that has been prepped by shot blasting or vacuum assisted diamond grinding and then primed according to its moisture content — using a squeegee and spiked roller to spread the mixture evenly with a coverage rate of around 0.3 kg / m2 per coat. 

Before the second coat is applied, vebro EP Mortar can be used to make small filler repairs to ensure the finished surface is as smooth as possible.
