Polyaspartic Coating

Mixing and Application Instructions (3544)

Product Storage
Store product at normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degrees F. Low temperature or temperature fluctuations may cause crystallization.
Surface Preparation
The most suitable surface preparation would be a 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. 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 two parts A to one part B by volume (volumes approximate). Standard packages are in pre-measured kits and should be mixed as supplied in the kit. 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. After mixing, transfer the mixed material to another pail (the transfer pail) and again remix. The material in the transfer pail is now ready to be applied on the properly prepared surface. This product has a short usable pot life of about 15 minutes which is substantially shorter than the actual gel time for the product. Applying the product beyond the usable pot life can result in surface irregularities.
Product Priming
A suitable primer should be used before applying this product. However, whether a primer is used or not, it is advisable to apply a test patch prior to using this product to determine if the adhesion characteristics are suitable for the service environment.
Product Application
The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. This product is only intended for use as a thin build topcoat. Improper mixing may result in product failure. It should be pointed out that relative humidity can have a dramatic influence on the curing characteristics. The product will dry quicker and have less working time when the relative humidity is higher while a lower relative humidity will lengthen the dry time and working time.
Recoating or Topcoating
The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. This product is only intended for use as a thin build topcoat. Improper mixing may result in product failure. It should be pointed out that relative humidity can have a dramatic influence on the curing characteristics. The product will dry quicker and have less working time when the relative humidity is higher while a lower relative humidity will lengthen the dry time and working time.
Cleanup
The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. This product is only intended for use as a thin build topcoat. Improper mixing may result in product failure. It should be pointed out that relative humidity can have a dramatic influence on the curing characteristics. The product will dry quicker and have less working time when the relative humidity is higher while a lower relative humidity will lengthen the dry time and working time.
Floor Cleaning
The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. This product is only intended for use as a thin build topcoat. Improper mixing may result in product failure. It should be pointed out that relative humidity can have a dramatic influence on the curing characteristics. The product will dry quicker and have less working time when the relative humidity is higher while a lower relative humidity will lengthen the dry time and working time.
