Calculate the amount of paint needed for optimal coverage using this formula:
Length of pool x width of pool x 1.7 = Square footage
Multiply square footage x 2 (for recommended 2 coats), then divide by 500 (approximate coverage of a 2 gallon kit.
Resulting number is number of kits needed for optimal coverage. Note: coverage may be less on bare or sandblasted surfaces.
Remove all paint, dirt, grease, or oil from pool surface by water blasting. Scrub surface with a Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) wash, and then etch with a muriatic acid solution (15-20%). Thoroughly rinse with TSP and plenty of fresh water. Allow pool to dry thoroughly. If the previous surface had a glossy finish, power sand for proper adhesion (80 grit profile).
No primer needed. Only apply Pro Master Platinum at temperatures between 50 – 90 degrees F. Not recommended for vinyl lined pools.
Mixing & Application
Mix parts A and B separately for at least 2 – 3 minutes. Combine parts A and B at a 1:1 mix ratio and mix for another 2 – 3 minutes. Allow solution to rest for up to 5 minutes before applying. Estimated pot life is 30 minutes to 1 hour at 75°F (humidity at 50%). Higher temperatures will decrease the pot life. Only mix enough epoxy that can be used within 1 – 2 hours.
For optimum rollout performance a recommend reducer may be used, such as Xylene or High Flash Naphta, as long as it does not exceed 10% of each gallon.
Apply Pro Master Platinum by roller (highly recommended), spray or brush. Choose an appropriate roller, such as a 3/8' or 1/2' nap mohair metal, lambskin, phenolic core roller. Keep roller wet. Roll in one direction, rewet, then cross roll. For conventional air sprayers, a tip size of 0.055 – 0.070 is recommended at 50 – 70 psi. For airless sprayers, use a tip size of 0.019 – 0.023 at 2200 – 2500 psi.
Pro Master Platinum dries to a gloss finish. For a non-skid finish, add pumice stone, marble dust, or sand to paint as needed.
Pro Master Platinum dries to the touch within 6 – 8 hours at 75°F. Higher temperatures and lower humidity will decrease drying time. A second coat (recommended) may be applied within 16 – 72 hours.
Before filling the pool with water, wait a minimum of 5 days to allow for complete cure. For each day of rain that occurs during the drying time, wait one additional day before filling.
