Mixing and Application Instructions (1399)

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 temperature fluctuations may cause crystallization.
Surface Preparation
The most suitable surface 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 that 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.
Product Mixings
This product has a mix ratio of 9.2# part A to 8.2# part B or one part A to one part B by volume. 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. 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.
Product Priming
Primers may be beneficial in some applications, dependent on performance characteristics and substrate condition, but none are required for product application
Product Application
The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. However, the material can also be applied by a suitable serrated squeegee and then back rolled as long as the appropriate thickness recommendations are maintained. Because this material has a short pot life, it is beneficial in some applications to remove the material from the mixing pail by pouring the material onto the substrate and spreading it along the floor. Spreading out the material will allow the applicator more time to work with the material before it begins to cure. Aggregate should be broadcast into the applied material before applying suitable topcoats. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. If concrete conditions or over aggressive mixing causes air entrapment, then an air release roller tool should be used prior to the coating tacking off to remove the air entrapped in the coating. When using as a broadcast binder, always evaluate performance parameters with a test area which is dependent on aggregate size and thickness, prior to application. Contact your representative for details as necessary.
