Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Recommended methods are:
Powerfloated concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster to remove weak laitence 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.
Loose or friable concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster. 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.
Timber – remove any loose paint and abrade thoroughly. Ensure surface is clean and free of dust, oil and grease. See relevant Data Sheet prior to application.
Once prepared, the area must be kept clean and free of traffic.
Flortex PU Clear should not be applied to surfaces with a moisture content exceeding 4%.
Flortex PU is applied by brush or roller (Please note; a nylon, medium pile roller sleeve is best).
The most important consideration now is the porosity of the substrate, how much you would like the coating to penetrate and what sort of finish you would like.
The advice given for very porous surfaces is to ‘flood’ the floor so that good penetration is achieved as this will greatly strengthen the substrate. However, take care not to leave any standing coating to ‘puddle’ as the product may ‘foam’ and leave a milky white discolouration.
It is then important to note that the floor may then also look patchy, this being caused by some areas being fully coated (due to less porosity) and appearing glossy, whilst other more porous areas are left matt. This is simply where the coating has penetrated and disappeared from the surface. Give further coats until a uniform finish is achieved. Two coats will suffice for nearly all floors, although please note that very porous surfaces might take even three or four coats. Remember; the greater the porosity, the less coverage you will achieve.
Make certain that sufficient time is allowed between coats to allow the previous coating to fully cure, this normally being from 2-4 hours depending on humidity and temperature. If the interval between coats exceeds 48 hours, it is advisable to abrade the surface to ensure good intercoat adhesion. If the second coat is applied before the first coat has dried, this can dramatically affect the ultimate curing time and the adhesive strength of the material, once cured.
