MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

PRODUCT STORAGE: Product must be stored in an area that will bring the product to room temperature prior to using. Continuous storage should be between 70 and 90 degree F. Keep from freezing

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION: Ensure your substrate is clean, dry and free of dust, wax, and contaminants. When coating over wood, it is recommended to seal the wood prior to applying a flood coat. Deep Ice may be used to seal the wood prior to coating over it.

PRODUCT MIXING: This product has a two to one mix ratio by volume-merely mix 2 gallons of part A with 1 gallon of part B. After the two parts are combined, mix well for 3 minutes with slow speed mixing equipment or a wood mixing stick until Deep Ice is thoroughly mixed and streak free. Avoid whipping air into the coating. Improper mixing may result in product failure. When pigmenting the product, mix the Part A and Part B first for one full minute, then add desired pigment and mix and blend very well until material is thoroughly mixed and streak free.

When pigmenting the product (ex. making a 3 gallon batch), pour 2 gallons of Part A into a measuring/mixing bucket, then add the desired amount of pigment into the Part A and mix until blended. Typically 4-6 minutes maximum.  Then add the part B up to the 3 gallon mark and mix and blend very well until material is thoroughly mixed and streak free.  Do not mix A and B together no more than 2 minutes.

Improper mixing may result in product failure. For best mixing results and proper blending of parts A and B, recommend a Jiffy Mixer style drill mixer.

Product Application: If applying Deep Ice over a varnish, stain or other coatings, make sure the existing product is fully cured before applying Deep Ice. If using Deep Ice as a seal coat, make a small batch, pour the product on the substrate and roll out with a 3/8” phenolic roller. If using Deep Ice as a flood coat, an example using it in a River Table, apply product evenly from one end of the table evenly to the full length of the table. If some parts are thicker, then take a trowel and even it out. If another flood coat is necessary, wait until a minimum of 16 hours before applying another coat.

Product and substrate must be 70°F or higher during application

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING: Installing multiple coats of this product is acceptable. If recoating this product, be sure that it is fully cured, especially when top coating with a solvent-based product. When applying a second coat, refer to the cure schedule as a guideline to follow, however it is best to allow at least 16 hours of curing, and to test the coating before recoating or top coating. This is done by pressing your thumb on the coating to ensure a fingerprint impression is not visible. If there is no impression visible, then applying a second coat is acceptable. Note, colder temperatures require longer cure times before product can be recoated. When applying a solvent-based product over Deep Ice, make sure it is fully cured, otherwise the solvent in the top coat will attack the uncured Deep Ice and it will not bond. If coating over Deep Ice that has been down for over 48 hours, it is recommended to lightly sand the counter with 220-300 grit sand paper to ensure a good bond. It is recommended to wipe the substrate clean with solvent to remove any fine dust that may be present prior to applying Deep Ice.

CLEANUP/FLOOR CLEANING: Use solvents for cleanup of installation tools. When cleaning tables and counters, CAUTION! Some cleaners may affect the color of the installed product. Test each cleaner used in a small area, ensuring no damage occurs.

RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the tables and counters from heavy use and non-harsh chemicals until the floor is fully cured, refer to the cure schedule. Allow the areas to remain completely dry during the curing process.

LIMITATIONS:

  • Colors or gloss may be affected by high humidity, low temperatures, chemical exposure, or exposure to lighting such as sodium vapor lights.
  • For best results use a 3/8” nap roller
  • Do not use in low temperatures
  • Product and substrate must be 70°F or higher during application
  • Do not rapidly mix product with high-speed mixer
  • Physical properties are typical values and not specifications
  • Colors may vary from batch to batch, therefore use only product from the same batch for an entire job.
