Product reference: 3/08

Product title: Epoxy Laminating Resin

Valid from: 30thJanuary 1999

Last reviewed: May 2019


A low viscosity two-pack epoxy resin for use with reinforcing materials for
laminating and construction.

Suggested use

As a laminating resin, used in conjunction with multi
directional roving or other reinforcing materials.
Corrocoat Epoxy Laminating Resin may be over-coated
with any of the Plasmet or Corrocoat Epoxy products; it has
excellent structural properties.


Should not be applied at temperatures below 41°F (5°C),
where dew point is within 5° of air temperature or where
humidity conditions exceed 87%.

Health & safety

Read and observe the Health & Safety data sheet prior
to use.

Surface preparation

Corrocoat Epoxy Laminating Resin (ELR) may be applied
directly on to correctly prepared steel substrates, grit blasted
to SSPC-SP10 (ISO 8501-1 SA 2½) or equivalent
standard. Full instructions are in the Corrocoat Data
Sheets SP1 and SP2. ELR may also be applied over other
Corrocoat epoxy products.
For best results on concrete it is recommended the
substrate is primed using Plasmet ECPbefore application of

Mix ratio

100 Parts base: 57 parts activator.
Adhesion promoter: maximum 2% of total mix.

Application equipment

Brush, roller, dipping or spray in certain conditions.


Whether or not the surface is already primed or coated,
wet the substrate using the laminating (ELR) resin. Soak
the reinforcement/roving in the ELR to ensure that it is
thoroughly wetted out. Apply the soaked roving on to the
surface while the roving and primer are still wet. Ensure
there are no ridges or air bubbles present (these may be
removed using a hard grooved or spiked roller while the
resin is still wet). Apply ELR directly on to any ‘dry’ or lightly
wetted areas in the reinforcement and ensure full wet out
with airrelease


If required, add the adhesion promoter to the base and
mix thoroughly. Add all the activator to the base and mix
thoroughly. Transfer into a clean container and remix.
Mix only as much product as you can use during the limited
pot life.
