Temperature limitations

Himfloor FC 130 shall not be applied at temperatures below 5°C, nor a substrate temperature which is lower than the dewpoint temperature plus 3°C. The maximum application temperature its 35°C. The maximum relative humidity is 80%.

Surface preparation

It is essential the thoroughly prepare the floor surface in order to achieve a sound, clean and dry substrate. Because Himfloor FC130 is a relatively thin coating, the substrate must be fine textured. Any surface irregularities may show through causing excessive wear on high spots and changing the perceived colour of the coating.

Concrete substrates: a sound, clean substrate is essential to achieve maximum adhesion.
Epoxy screeds: Himfloor FC130 may be applied to Himfloor epoxy resin screeds.
Asphalt floors: Himfloor FC130 can be applied to asphalt floors provided they are at least 6 month old.Himfloor FC130 can be used to overcoat Cemtop to provide a more easily cleaned, chemically resistant surface. Apply 2 coats of Himfloor FC130, generally 24 hours after the installation of Cemtop.


New concrete floors should be at least 28 days old and give a hygrometer reading not exceeding 5% (protimeter).


No primer is necessary.


Proper mixing of the base component should be poured into the hardener container. Mix the components for a least 3 minutes. The use a heavy duty slow speed drill fitted with a mixing paddle is desirable.

Material consumption(theoretical)

0.15/m² per coat depending upon substrate and preparation.

Product description

Himfloor FC130 is a tow-component water dispersed epoxy resin coating. The cured film forms a pigmented, matt seal to concrete and other substrates. The product is available in a wide range of standard RAL colours.


Himfloor FC130 can be supplied in 24 standard RAL colours. Please consult colour card.

Flooring system

2-3 coats of Himfloor FC130


The service life of a floor can be considerably extended by good housekeeping. Regular cleaning may be carried out using a rotary scrubbing machine with a water miscible cleaning agent at temperatures up to 50°C.


The mixed Himfloor FC 130 should be applied to the prepared surface using a brush or lambswool roller. Ensure that areas is completely coated and that “ponding” of the material does not occur since water may be trapped within the product, thus preventing complete cure. The second coat may be applied as soon as the first coat has initially dried (typically 16 hours). The time will be dependent on the type of surface and the ambient conditions. God drying conditions are requited to allow complete evaporation of the water as the resin cures. Adequate ventilation and air movement is necessary.

Potlife at 20°C

45 minutes

Curing time at 20°C and rel.hum.65%
