How to use

Surface Preparation

The surface should be dry, free of any cement laitance, oil and grease, curing compound and any other contaminants, which may affect the bonding. Light mechanical scabbling, grit/captive blasting or grinding is recommended for cleaning the surface of such contaminants. New concrete surfaces should be 28 days old and the moisture content on the surface must be less than 5%. Surface irregularities and blow holes shall be repaired with Polypoxy BF or Polycrete ST. The surface should be vacuumed ahead of priming. Prime the prepared surface with Polyprime EP @ 4-5m2/L. The coating is applied when the primer is dry. However, in all circumstances, the coating shall be applied within 24 hours of application of the primer. If the primer surface is left open for more than 24 hours, then a fresh coat of primer has to be re-applied.

Application

Mix part A (resin) and part B (hardener) separately for 1 minute using a slow speed drill fitted with a paddle. Then add Part B into Part A and mix thoroughly for 2 - 3 minutes to achieve uniform consistency. Apply immediately after mixing. Polypoxy FC can be applied using a brush/roller/air less spray/squeegee the product can also be poured and spread evenly on the floor with a squeegee. The coating will then be finished by rolling the surface with a roller. When the first coat achieves initial cure (i.e. after 24hours) apply second coat at right angles to the first. After application the coating must be back rolled to reduce surface irregularities and improve bonding. For a non slip finish, broadcast non slip Aggregate No 3 into the primer coat or first coat of Polypoxy FC @ 0.3kg/m² and remove excess prior to application of next coat. 

Finishing

Store all material in a cool, covered dry place. Do not expose the pails to direct sunlight and keep away from all sources of heat. In tropical climatic conditions, the product has to be stored in an airconditioned environment and protected from high humidity. The shelf life of the product is 12 months in unopened condition if stored as per the recommendations. Exposure to high temperature and humidity will result in considerable deterioration of the product and reduce its shelf life.
