    HP Spartacote® Introduces Sparta-Flex® XT™, High Performance Polyaspartic Top-Coat for Concrete Surfaces

HP Spartacote® Introduces Sparta-Flex® XT™, High Performance Polyaspartic Top-Coat for Concrete Surfaces

HP Spartacote® is pleased to announce the release of Sparta-Flex® XT™, an ultra-durable polyaspartic top-coat for concrete surfaces and resinous flooring systems.
Sparta-Flex® XT™ represents the latest in high performance polyaspartic concrete coating technology, offering increased durability and chemical resistance. This green-friendly, low-emitting material offers a 1-2 hour dry time with next-day full return to service. A 92% solids formulation, Sparta-Flex® XT™ is manufactured  from only the highest grade resins available with no excessive fillers or additives.

Exhibiting extremely high chemical and abrasion resistance, Sparta-Flex® XT™ may be incorporated in numerous types of applications and environments.  Along with the material’s UV stability, it maintains superior weathering capabilities and is a suitable as either an interior or exterior flooring solution. Sparta-Flex® XT™ can be used as a protective top-coat over polyaspartic, epoxy or urethane coating systems. It’s low VOC (<50g/l) and very low odor qualities offer viable applications within active heavy-traffic commercial and industrial environments.
One of the most exciting uses for Sparta-Flex® XT™ is as an alternative top-coat on all standard HP Spartacote® resinous flooring systems. Sparta-Guard™, Sparta-Chip™, Sparta-Quartz™, Alpen-Glow™, Sparta-Stain™ and Sparta-Seal™ applications may all substitute specified top-coats with Sparta-flex® XT™ in situations calling for an ultra-durable wearing surface with little to no residual solvent odors.
Aircraft hanger floor coatings, commercial resinous flooring systems and high performance industrial coatings represent the most common uses for Sparta-Flex®XT™. It’s immunity to hot-tire pickup failures common with epoxy floor coatings combined with a unique resistance to some of the harshest industrial chemicals constitute the primary reason why Sparta-Flex® XT™ is an ideal choice for some of the most demanding situations. The material performs remarkably well as a clear or pigmented top-coat for trowel down or broadcast urethane cement floor coating systems common within […]

Slip Testing – Standard 4 Coat Sparta-Quartz System
R2117/12

24th February 2012
We were supplied with a ply board panel coated with standard 4 Coat Sparta-Quartz System on 21st February 2012, in order to carry out Slip Resistance measurements. The quartz system was beige in colour.

Slip Resistance
The equipment used was a TRRL Pendulum manufactured by Stanley and calibrated in May 2011. Testing was in accordance with BS7976 Pt 1-3:2002. The equipment was fitted with a 4S rubber slider as stated in the UK Slip Resistance Group Guidelines Issue 3 2005. Wet and dry measurements were taken. The floor sample was tested as delivered i.e. not cleaned. The room temperature was 17.5ºC.

 

Discussion
According to The UK Slip Resistance Group Guidelines Issue 3 2005 Pendulum Test Values (PTV) are related to slip potential as follows (when
using a 4S Slider) :-

– High Potential for slip:  PTV 0-24Moderate Potential for slip PTV 25-35
– Low Potential for slip:  PTV 35-65
– Extremely Low potential for slip:  PTV Above 65

All the readings were in the Extremely Low Potential for slip class.
It was noted that the surface was very aggressive & the slider had to be reprepared
after each run.
