Thorough substrate preparation is essential before applying Flortex EP.
Recommended methods are:
Powerfloated concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster to remove weak laitence and provide a surface key for the Flortex EP 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 Polycoate 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.
Prior to application of Flortex EP, a suitable primer should be applied. These include Polycote EP Primer, WD Primer or OT Primer, depending on the type and condition of the surface.
Please contact Polycote Technical Helpline, and prepare the surface in accordance with the appropriate primer data sheet.
Having fully prepared the substrate, stir the individual components before mixing together. Add Part 'B' to Part 'A' and thoroughly mix for at least 3 minutes. For best results use a heavy duty slow speed drill with a mixing paddle.
Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation.
Apply by brush, roller or squeegee, making sure that the surface is completely covered.
Particular attention should be given to doorways and other areas of high traffic. When finished, DO NOT scrape the remaining contents from the container as this will invariably include unmixed resin.
