Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Recommended methods are:
Powerfloated, loose or friable 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.
Loose paint or rust – remove, using a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster, Floor Grinder or equivalent method.
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. See relevant Data Sheet prior to application.
Once prepared, the area must be kept clean and free of traffic.
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 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 raw resin.
