Surface Preparation is the most critical portion of any successful resinous flooring system application. Work must be performed by trained or experienced contractors or maintenance personnel. Before grouting, clean joints and the tile surface with a damp sponge to remove dust, dirt, and other contaminants. Do not leave water standing in joints. Do not clean tiles with acid cleaners. All leaks must be stopped using Antel Water Stop, Antel Epoxy Putty or Antel SBR Bonding Agent as appropriate. Where damp or wet surfaces exist constantly, seek technical advice. For pools that are already painted make good the surface and then sand and clean the existing paint or coating to ensure a sound base.Particularly attention should be made to degreasing surfaces before application.
The performance of the coating can be seriously impaired if the following instructions are not strictly adhered to.
Empty entire contents of the small pack in the big pack. Wtih a slow speed drill, mix until materials are completely blended and no lumps are present. When the mix is complete it is advisable to mix/stir for a further 2-3 minutes to ensure complete dispersion of the 2 components.The material is now ready to apply immediately to the prepared areas.
WARNING – DO NOT APPLY IN TEMPERATURES BELOW 10 DEGREES C
Apply mixed material onto working area using a grout applicator following standard epoxy and grouting techniques. Be sure all grouted joints are completely filled. Remove excess grout with grout float. Do not leave excess grout on face of tiles. Remove excess along the grout line with a scraper before wiping. Using a damp grout sponge, wipe along grout line to remove final excess. Finally, wipe in circular motion over grout joint to finish. It is very important to wash the grout sponge many times during the entire above procedure. Apply to an area of 2 square metres at a time.
11. HEALTH & SAFETY
It is recommended that all skin contact is avoided and that any areas of contact are washed immediately with soap and warm water. It is advisable to use a barrier cream and gloves when applying. Always consult the safety data sheet.
