PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS:

Product Description

Fortec 4550 LPL Hi-Modulus Fiber Matrix is a 100% solids, solvent-free, two-component MOISTURE INSENSITIVE EPOXY. Fortec 4550 Fiber Matrix is a low viscosity epoxy for wetting and use with carbon fiber for structural repairs.

Advantages

  • Easy mix ratio: 2 Parts A to 1 Part B by Volume
  • Long Pot Life with rapid strength development
  • Provides high early strength and excellent adhesion to most structural materials
  • Insensitive to moisture before, during and after cure
  • Low temperature cures – As low as 40oF (4oC)

Physical Properties

  • Moisture Insensitive & low temperature cure
  • #4550 LPL Fiber Matrix Structural Epoxy

CAUTION
  • Minimum surface application temperature is 40oF (4oC)
  • Do not seal slabs on grade
  • Material is a vapor barrier after cure
  • Not for sealing cracks under hydrostatic pressure
  • Minimum age of concrete must be 21 – 28 days
  • Test for surface vapor transmission. Moisture passing through the substrate by pressure during the application and curing will cause bond failures
  • Due to many variables in bonding on damp or underwater surfaces, be certain to test application under the same conditions as full-scale work

Temperature

Will cure at temperatures as low as 40oF(4oC), providing the temperature will be 40oF and rising during the next 72 hours. Epoxy materials should be stored at least 24 hours prior to use at 80oF(26oC),or higher. Epoxies stored below 60oF(15oC),will cause the epoxy to thicken substantially, making it difficult to properly blend the two materials and obtain a proper mating of resin and hardener. Protect from inclement weather and freezing. If product temperature falls below 50oF(10oC), it is recommended that a product temperature of 80oF(26oC) be obtained prior to using. Store dry at 40oF(4oC) – 100oF(38Co). Condition to 70oF(26Co) – 85oF(29oC) before using.

CAUTION -FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY:
FORTRESS FIBER MATRIX epoxies contain alkaline amines. Strong sensitizer MAY CAUSE SKIN SENSITIZATION or allergic response ranging from a mild wheezing to a severe asthmatic type attack. Avoid contact with skin or eyes. IN CASE OF CONTACT immediately wash skin with soap and water. Flush eyes with water and obtain medical attention. Wear protective clothing, goggles and barrier cream on all exposed skin.Provide adequate ventilation.
