Application Instructions:

Note that application procedures are virtually the same for both the aerosol and the bulk gallon liquid. First, properly prepare the surface in order to ensure the best possible adhesion of Traction Kote 400 to a hard surface. Any application requires a clean surface, regardless of the surface material.

To create the proper profile use a 60 to 100 grit sanding disc and lightly abrade the surface. Next, mask the area to be treated to ensure a uniform finish that looks professional and also eliminates over-usage. Apply Traction Kote 400 by using either the aerosol spray can or (if using the bulk 1 gallon can) applying the paint with a 3/8 inch solvent-resistant roller.

After applying, remove the masking tape immediately and let the coating dry completely before opening the area to traffic. Depending on the humidity and weather conditions at the time of application, drying time may be 4-6 hours. (If closing an application area is not possible due to its constant flow of heavy traffic, consider doing a partial application).

Application Instructions Based On Surface Type:

Over Painted Surfaces:
For proper adhesion, the existing coatings on any surfaces must be in good condition and free from any flaking and/or delamination prior to the application of Traction Kote 400.

Wood Surfaces:
Traction Kote 400 is not meant to be applied to green or uncured wood surfaces (with less than 90 days exposure to environment). This product may be applied to any cured wood surface.

Steel, Aluminum, Quarry Tile, Ceramic Tile, Porcelain, And Concrete Surfaces:
To insure proper adhesion, these surface types must be cleaned and abraded with a 80 or 100 grit sanding disc.

Asphalt Surfaces:
Traction Kote 400 is not meant to be applied to untreated asphalt. When applying to treated asphalt, note that the surface must first be primed with a water based (acrylic) primer.

Fiberglass Surfaces:
No special preparation is necessary when applying Traction Kote 400 to fiberglass surfaces. It will bond to all fiberglass without abrading, etc. Simply clean thoroughly and apply.
