Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Recommended methods are:
Powerfloated concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster to remove weak laitence and provide a surface key for the coating. If this is not possible, chemically etch with Polycote Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Loose paint or rust – remove, using a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster, Floor Grinder or equivalent method. Loose or friable concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster. If this is not possible, chemically clean with Polycote Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Oil or grease – use Hot Compressed Air for large areas of contamination. Smaller, isolated deposits may be chemically cleaned with Polycote Degrease IT, then rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry.
Use of the correct epoxy primer is vital to success. Contact the Polycote technical help line for advice and follow all preparation and application guidelines on the relevant primer data sheet.
Clean, sound, dry concrete – prime with EP Primer.
Oil-impregnated or damp concrete – use OT Primer.
Quarry/Ceramic tiles or terrazzo – use WD Primer.
In any case, Flortex® Freeflow should be applied within 36 hours of priming to ensure a good intercoat chemical bond. If the interval is exceeded, abrade the primer coat to provide a mechanical key.
Having fully prepared and primed the substrate, stir parts 'A' and 'B' individually, then add Part 'B' to Part 'A' and thoroughly mix for at least one minute. For best results use a heavy duty slow speed drill with a mixing paddle. The mixed material should then be loaded into a rotary drum mixer or similar and the filler Part 'C' be added gradually. Continue mixing until an even consistency is obtained.
Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation..
The mixed material should be applied immediately to the desired thickness using a serrated trowel or squeegee. DO NOT scrape the contents from the sides of the container as this will invariably include unmixed resin. The WET coating should be allowed to settle for 10-20 minutes, and should then be rolled using a spiked roller to eliminate air bubbles trapped within the coating. Spiked shoes should be worn to avoid disturbing the wet surface. DO NOT attempt to re-roll later.
