Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be above 55° F to prevent crystallization.
Preparation: All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. We recommend that an aggressive shot blast be performed prior to the application of this product. A less adequate method would be acid etching, but the etch should properly profile the substrate. All edges and around columns or beams should be mechanically scarified. All termination points should not be feather edged, but should be saw cut with the termination ending at the sawcut. All large cracks should be V cut and filled with an appropriate crack filler. All expansion joints should be filled with an appropriate joint filler. When overlaying an expansion joint, a single saw cut through the epoxy overlay will prevent random fracturing. 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. No primer is necessary.
Mixing: It is important that the liquids be mixed together first. Mix the liquids in an oversized container thoroughly until streak free. After the liquids are thoroughly mixed, add in the aggregate. Mix in the aggregate with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer or rotating bucket/stationary mixing blade assembly. It is important that enough time is spent mixing in the aggregate to insure that the aggregate is thoroughly wetted out. No induction time is necessary.
Application: Apply the mixed material at 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness. Apply the material with a hand trowel or other suitable application equipment. Do not over-trowel the material as this may cause isolated blisters to form. Air currents directly across or above the mortar during the curing process may cause isolated blisters to form. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process.
No recoating or topcoating is necessary. For chemical exposure areas, we recommend a suitable topcoat to reduce porosity and chemical migration. For cleanup, use xylol. Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured.
