Application

Application

Preparation:
The surface must be sound, clean and free of loose or friable materials.
Mould or algae must be brushed off and the area should be treated with Polycote Destroy IT.
Any oil or grease must be removed using Polycote Degrease IT, followed by thorough rinsing.
Please refer to relevant Data sheets.

Priming:
No priming is necessary.
Dry surfaces may be dampened with water to assist adhesion.

Mixing:
Gradually add the entire contents of a 25kg unit to 7.5 - 8.5L of clean water in a suitable bucket, mixing continuously while adding the powder.
For best results – use a heavy duty slow speed drill with a mixing paddle. Mix for at least 3 minutes after all the powder has been added until a creamy consistency is achieved.

Application:
Two coats should be applied using a brush or spray.
The first coat should be applied in a horizontal direction, and a 24 hour interval allowed before applying a second coat at right angles to the first.
Where water is penetrating under pressure, please contact Polycote technical helpline to confirm suitability and application method.
