Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Recommended methods are:
Powerfloated concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster to remove weak laitance 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 before applying Flortex Professional.
Loose paint or rust – remove, using a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster, Floor Grinder or equivalent method.
Loose or friable concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shot blaster. 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.
Prior to application of Flortex® Professional a suitable Polycote primer should be applied, 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. As pigment may 'sink', ensure that the mixing is very thorough and from the bottom of the container. 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 Professional may be applied by brush, roller or squeegee, depending on the film thickness required.
It is normally applied at a rate of 0.3kg to 0.5kg per 1m2 using a roller or squeegee. When the quantity of resin used exceeds 0.5kg/m2, air bubbles may become trapped within the coating. These are removed using a Polycote Spiked Roller. This must be carried out immediately after application of the resin before curing takes place. Spiked shoes should 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 Kiln Dried Aggregate onto the WET resin at a rate of 2-3kg/m2. The quantity of 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® Professional should then be applied using a roller or squeegee. The thickness of this coat may be varied depending on the finish required.

- Worked their socks off and did a fantastic job
I just wanted to drop you line to say thank you for organising the rectification of our corridor. Larry and Michael worked their socks off and did a fantastic job. It now looks just like the finished article I was expecting the first time. Our corridor looks great and nothing like the first attempt. In business, mistakes and problems arise all the time. It’s how you deal with those problems that define you as a company and in this instance, you have dealt with it really well and I am extremely pleased with the result. So, thanks again. I am now a happy customer!!
Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to Larry and Michael when you see them. They have an amazing work ethic and high standards!

Polycote can and professionally installed this product for us back in 2014 and it has been excellent. So hard wearing! We had a battery crack and leak acid over the floor and even that didn't cause it to lift. It did however discolour the reason but they assured

We applied this onto a new wooden deck, mezz floor and it is still absolutely fine 4 years down the road. It stands up to anything. It takes a lot of scratching
