Epoxy Mortar Grout Coat

Mixing and Application Instructions (944)

Product Storage
Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degree F. Low temperatures or great temperature fluctuations may cause product crystallization.
Surface Preparation
The most suitable preparation would be a fine brush blast (shot blast) to remove all laitance and provide a suitable profile. All dirt, foreign contaminants, oil and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. A test should be made to determine the concrete is dry; this can be done by placing a 4’X4’ plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate is dry enough to start coating. The plastic sheet testing is also a good method to determine if any hydrostatic pressure problems exist that may later cause disbonding.
Product Mixings
This product has a mix ratio of 2 parts A (8.7-8.9#/gallon) to 1 part B (3.95#/gallon) by volume for standard colors, and 9.3# part A to 4.6# part B for the clear. Standard packages are in pre-measured kits and should be mixed as supplied in the kit. We highly recommend that the kits not be broken down unless suitable weighing equipment is available. However, a direct 2:1 mix proportioning by volume can be employed. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. Continue mixing for another couple of minutes to insure a homogeneous mixture. Make sure you scrape the bottom and sides of the pail while mixing. Improper mixing may result in product failure.
Product Priming
This product is intended to be used over an epoxy mortar troweled system. It is advisable to select a mortar color similar to the color of the 944 to be used
Product Application
Make certain that the epoxy mortar overlay where the product is to be applied, is clean, sound and free of all laitance, dirt, dust, oil, grease, water, or foreign contaminants. Apply the mixed coating by a flat flexible rubber squeegee so as to spread out the material in a uniform manner removing all excess material from the surface of the mortar; then backroll at 6 mils (removing all excess material) with a fine nap roller. Depending on the porosity of the mortar overlay and the color selected, it may be necessary to apply more than one coat of material to achieve uniform coverage for 6 mil applications. When applied properly, the texture of the mortar will still be visible. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. For a one coat application, which may alter the texture of the mortar, roll out at 12-16 mils.
Recoating or Topcoating
Make certain that the epoxy mortar overlay where the product is to be applied, is clean, sound and free of all laitance, dirt, dust, oil, grease, water, or foreign contaminants. Apply the mixed coating by a flat flexible rubber squeegee so as to spread out the material in a uniform manner removing all excess material from the surface of the mortar; then backroll at 6 mils (removing all excess material) with a fine nap roller. Depending on the porosity of the mortar overlay and the color selected, it may be necessary to apply more than one coat of material to achieve uniform coverage for 6 mil applications. When applied properly, the texture of the mortar will still be visible. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. For a one coat application, which may alter the texture of the mortar, roll out at 12-16 mils.
Cleanup
Make certain that the epoxy mortar overlay where the product is to be applied, is clean, sound and free of all laitance, dirt, dust, oil, grease, water, or foreign contaminants. Apply the mixed coating by a flat flexible rubber squeegee so as to spread out the material in a uniform manner removing all excess material from the surface of the mortar; then backroll at 6 mils (removing all excess material) with a fine nap roller.
