5. INSTRUTIONS FOR USE
The substrate must have a minimum compressive strength of 25 N/mm2. Moisture content should not exceed 5% and relative humidity at the surface should not exceed 75%. All oil and grease must be removed. The surface should be free of laitance, etc. Cleaning by mechanical means such as grit blasting or scabbling is very important.
Concrete surfaces must be clean and free of grease/contamination.
Concrete contaminated with oil or grease require suitable preparation such as steam cleaning using a suitable detergent to remove the contaminant.
Priming is necessary when the substrate is poor even after preparation. Failure to prepare the surface correctly may result in bad bond formation. Therefore it may be necessary to apply a primer.
5.2 Mixing – Please follow instructions exactly
Mix the resin and hardener components thoroughly with drill paddle. Do not speed mix as this can affect the workability of the material. Once mixed transfer to a shallow tray immediately. This will help to dissipate heat and give a longer working time.
The coating can be applied with a suitable brush or good quality foam-backed roller to achieve a smooth, even finish. A second coat if required, can be applied in the same manner once the first coat is tack free. If a non-slip finish is desired, a thin dusting of dry sand or grit may be applied between coats. A further 24 hours should be allowed before permitting traffic. Maximum inter coat time 24 hours.
