Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Prior to application of Flortex Flexiset a suitable primer should be applied.
These include Polycote EP Primer, WD Primer or OT Primer, depending on the type and the condition of the surface.
Please contact Polycote Technical Help line, 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.
Flortex Flexiset may be applied by brush, roller or squeegee, depending on the film thickness required.
To achieve a smooth high build finish – apply Flortex Flexiset at a rate of 0.3kg to 1kg per 1m2 using a roller or squeegee.
When the quantity of resin used exceeds 0.5kgm2, air bubbles may become trapped in the coating. These are removed by using a Polycote Spiked Roller and must be carried out immediately after application of the resin before curing takes place. Spiked shoes should also be worn to avoid disturbing the wet coating.
To achieve a high build or textured finish – having applied the resin at a rate of 0.5kg to 1.0kg/m2, then gradually sprinkle 0.3-0.6mm Kiln Dried Aggregate onto the WET resin at a rate of 2-4kg/m2.
The quantity of the aggregate required will depend on the thickness of the initial coating. If a textured surface is required, all ‘wet spots’ must be re-covered with aggregate.
Please note: spiked rolling is unnecessary for the first coat when using aggregate.
Allow first coat to fully cure (preferably 24 hours) before removing all excess aggregate.
A final coat of Flortex Flexiset should then be applied using a roller or squeegee. The thickness of this coat may be varied depending on the finish required.
