Polyfusion for concrete coating

Polyfusion System features 

Polyfusion has been specifically designed to provide a tough long lasting, fusion bonded coating on concrete and other porous surfaces. It is based on an alloy of acid modified polyolefins.

Chemical & Physical Characteristics

  • Resistance to penetration of liquids (anti-osmotic characteristics); 
  • Enhanced smooth fluidity; 
  • Excellent resistance to chemicals (acids, alkali, solvents *(1) ); 
  • Excellent resistance to adverse weather conditions; 
  • Outstanding UV protection; 
  • Excellent behaviour in case of fire (material that would not easily catch fire); 
  • Stain resistance, there are no pores for calcium, rust or other staining agents to grab or imbed into; 
  • Anti-bacterial properties (special formulations).
*(1) Contact IBIX ® for specific chemical resistance requirements.

Mechanical Properties

  • Excellent Adhesion; 
  • Abrasion-resistance (Taber ASTM 60mg/500g); 
  • Remarkable elastic properties (elongation at break: 500%); 
  • Excellent resistance to blistering, chalking, peeling, cracking and other signs of deterioration in normal use; 
  • Excellent flexibility, even at very cold temperatures; 
  • Resistance to cold (-50°C).

Appearance and Technical Characteristics

  • Smooth, durable and long-lasting coating; 
  •  Antislip version available; 
  • Colour and pattern uniformity which will last for many years to come; 
  • Easy to repair if accidentally damaged (Thermoplastic); 
  • Eco Friendly; 
  • No porosity.

Application Method

Polyfusion is commonly applied through flame spraying prior application of the epoxy primer Polyres N using special coating applicators developed by IBIX, such as HERCULES manual or semi-automatic.

Application Procedure – in brief

  • Removal of existing coating; 
  • Surface Preparation:
    • Inspect the surface for any delamination or hollow spots. If hollow spots are found they must be chopped out and repaired using appropriate repairing material;
    • Sand and/or smooth existing surface to a flat finish with a sanding disc and/or a cement-based product. 
  • Blast/acid wash to clean the surface; 
  • Coat the concrete surface with the sealing bi-component primer Polyres N and wait until it dries; 
  • Apply a second layer of Polyres N and wait until it reaches a “tacky” status (it should not be too dry nor too wet, sticky but without leaving any residues at the touch.) 
  • Apply Polyfusion System through IBIX flame spray system. 
Please, refer to the POLYFUSION application manual for further information about the application procedure.
