MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

1) 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 60 and 90 degree F. Keep from freezing 2)

SURFACE PREPARATION: Preparation methods may vary depending on the system being applied. For a complete system thickness that is higher than 10 mils dry, a fine brush blast (shot blast), is recommended. To assure a trouble free bond, all dust, oil, dirt, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed. It is recommended to perform a moisture test to determine that the concrete has an appropriate vapor barrier. This can be done by placing a 4’X4’ plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. Once 24 hours has passed, and the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate does not show signs of eventual hydrostatic pressure problems that may later cause disbonding. This test does not guarantee, however, that there may not be future hydrostatic pressure issues in the future.

PRODUCT MIXING:  This product has a mix ratio of 1.5 parts A to 1 part B by volume (volumes approximate).  Standard packages are in pre-measured kits and should be mixed as supplied in the kit.  After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free.  After mixing, transfer the mixed material to another pail (the transfer pail) and again remix.  The material in the transfer pail is now ready to be applied on the properly prepared surface.

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.

PRIMING: A suitable primer should be used before applying this product. See the front side of this technical data for primer information. However, whether a primer is used or not, it is advisable to apply a test patch prior to using this product to determine if the adhesion characteristics are suitable for the service environment.

PRODUCT APPLICATION: The mixed material can be applied by brush, serrated squeegee, or roller. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. The product can be used as a topcoat to seal in the broadcasted paint chip or broadcasted quartz base for the final coat. Use an air release roller tool when needed. Improper mixing may result in product failure. It should be pointed out that relative humidity can have a dramatic influence on the curing characteristics. The product will dry quicker and have less working time when the relative humidity is higher while a lower relative humidity will lengthen the dry time and working time. Mix only an amount that can be applied in the time allotted. Be sure that any tie-ins to previously applied material is also within the recommended time allotted for use as the previously applied material may begin to tack off in a short period of time

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING:  This material can be applied in multiple layers to increase build or can also be used as the final topcoat to seal in the aggregate filled base system. If you opt to recoat or topcoat this product, you must first be sure that the coating has tacked off before recoating.  Always remember that colder temperatures will require more cure time for the product before recoating or topcoating can commence.  Refer to the cure schedule as a guideline to follow, however it is best to test the coating before recoating or topcoating. 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 coating the floor can be done. Note, colder temperatures require longer cure times before product can be recoated. Prior to coating the floor, make sure there are no contaminants exist. If contaminants or a blush exists, remove with a standard detergent cleaner and ensure floor is clean and dry prior to coating.

CLEANUP/FLOOR CLEANING:Use Xylol for cleanup. Caution! Some cleaners may affect the color of the floor installed. Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.

RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure). It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on actual complete system application, surface may be slippery, especially when wet or contaminated; keep surface clean and dry.
