INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE OF EPOXY RESIN WORK SURFACES



Durcon Epoxy Resin tops are manufactured from shop drawings or other detailed information provided by the customer. The following suggestions and information may be helpful in installing and maintaining Durcon Epoxy Resin tops:


General Information

Durcon tops will arrive at the installation site in crates with each piece marked with a part number. This part number will appear on an unfinished edge or on the top surface. A copy of the shop drawings that accompany the shipment are marked with corresponding numbers.

The tops should be unpacked and sorted with the help of the marked drawings and distributed to the proper rooms and elevations. Durcon tops may be stored at the jobsite in a flat condition, covered to protect from damage.


Installation

Durcon tops must be fastened to casework or understructure which has been leveled and connected. The Durcon tops can be installed with flat, smooth joints by shimming or clamping pieces together to reduce natural variations in thickness and flatness. Durcon maybe deflected enough to insure proper jointing by clamping or applying pressure without concern for breakage.


The factory will supply epoxy cement when ordered.


The epoxy cement may be used for jointing and fastening the tops to the casework. Mixing instructions are printed on the cement container. All parts to be cement together must be clean and free of dirt and grease. A rough surface will form a stronger joint than a smooth surface, so use coarse sandpaper where required. Epoxy cement will harden in about 30 minutes at 73°F. The actual curing time will vary with temperature and humidity. Masking tape can be used to keep the epoxy cement from finished surfaces, but the tape must be removed before the epoxy hardens. Before it fully hardens, epoxy cement can be removed with a putty knife and a damp rag.


Durcon must never be used as scaffolding or for a convenient storage area. The installer should protect the work surface after installation to prevent damage from abuse until accepted by the client.

Field fabrication

Durcon can be fabricated in the field to accommodate jobsite conditions.


Cutting is best done with a worm drive portable saw, a 7" diamond blade, and water spray attachment. Masonry carborundum abrasive blades can be used, but the blade life will be much shorter than a diamond blade.


Drilling is the best done with diamond core bits and water attachment. Carbide tipped drill bits can be used but again, with much shorter life.
