Paint Chips

Mixing and Application Instructions ()

Product Storage
Store product in a dry area at normal room temperature.
Surface Preparation
Surface preparation will vary according to the type of complete system to be applied. For a two coat thin build system (3-10 mils dry per coat) we recommend either mechanical scarification or acid etching until a suitable profile is achieved. For a complete system build higher than 10 mils dry, we recommend a fine brush blast (shot blast). All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate with the system chosen.. A test should be made to determine that the concrete has an appropriate vapor barrier. 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 does not show signs of eventual hydrostatic pressure problems that may later cause disbanding.

Product Application
Application of the chips is dependent on system used and desired look. Typically, a primer is installed, followed by a mid coat selection. The chips are broadcast into the mid coat selection while the applied material is still wet. After the mid coat application has become tack free and cured, a flat blade squeegee can be used to break off any chips that may be protruding upward. After the use of the flat blade squeegee, excess chips can be vacuumed up. Finally, a topcoat is applied over the chipped surface to lock in the paint chips
