DE NEEF® Denepox Rapid Gel

Two Component Epoxy Gel

Product Description

DE NEEF® Denepox Rapid Gel is a non-sagging, rapid curing, 100% solids, two component, fast setting epoxy gel used for patching, surface sealing, and bonding substrates. DE NEEF® Denepox Rapid Gel is a thixotropic gel with 1% elongation that works well for port adhesion and surface patching when injecting epoxies, especially if done the same day. DE NEEF® Denepox Rapid Gel is moisture insensitive so it can be applied in damp or even wet conditions. This product meets ASTM C-881, Type: IV, Grade: 3, Class: A, B and C.

  • No shrinkage
  • High strength
  • 100% solids
  • Easy to apply
  • Tenacious adhesion
  • Non-sag

Product Applications

  • Surface patching
  • Surface sealing
  • Bonding substrates

    Installation Guidelines

    Surface of application should be clean and sound. The surface must be free of dust, oil, grease, laitance, curing compounds, or any other contaminants. It may be dry, damp, or wet, but must be free of standing water. The very best results are obtained on dry concrete. Do NOT apply on surfaces which have been sealed with a permanent type of form oil, curing compound or release agent. Remove these substances before application. The surface temperature must be 40°F and rising. Precondition the materials to between 65°F – 85°F before using. Refer to DE NEEF® Surface Preparation Guidelines for more details.

    Mixing Procedure: Stir each component separately. Mix 1 part A with 1 part B by volume into a clean mixing container. Mix the epoxy with a slow speed drill with a mixing paddle attachment. Carefully scrape the sides and bottom of the pail during mixing with a paint stirring stick. Blend until a consistent color is observed. Mix only the amount of materials that can be used within the pot life. Please note: Large batches of epoxy will cure much faster than small batches. Mixed epoxy will cure much faster in hot weather than in cold weather.

    Application:

    Due to its very short pot life, DE NEEF® Denepox Rapid Gel must be placed quickly. Best when applied in less than 25 mil thickness. For thicker applications use several thin layers. Allow cooling time before doing additional layers because of exothermic reaction.
