Mixing: This product has a mix ratio of 1.5 gallons part A to 1 gallon part B. 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 primed substrate.
Application: The mixed material can be applied by brush, serrated squeegee, or roller. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. The product can be used as a topcoat to seal in the broadcasted paint chip or broadcasted quartz base for the final coat. Use an air release roller tool when needed. 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. Mix only an amount that can be applied in the time allotted. Be sure that any tie-ins to previously applied material is also within the recommended time allotted for use as the previously applied material may begin to tack off in a short period of time.
Recoating/Topcoating: This material can be applied in multiple layers to increase build or can also be used as the final topcoat to seal in the aggregate filled base system. If you opt to recoat or topcoat this product, you must first be sure that the coating has tacked off before recoating. Always remember that colder temperatures will require more cure time for the product before recoating or topcoating can commence.
- Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured. It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on actual complete system application, surface may be slippery, especially when wet or contaminated; keep surface clean and dry.
- Some cleaners may affect the color of the floor installed. Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.
- Colors or clarity for clear may be affected by high humidity, low temperatures, or chemical exposure.
- For best results use a high quality nap roller.
- Slab on grade requires moisture barrier.
- Substrate temperature must be 5°F above dew point.
- Relative humidity must be below 75°F.
- All new concrete must be cured for at least 28 days.
- Improper mixing or too thick of an application may result in product failure.
- Do not expose this product to water until fully cured.
- Too thick of an application may result in surface imperfections or bubble generation.
