How to use

SURFACE PREPARATION

Concrete Surface:
Clean the surfaces which shall receive the coating of all
dust, dirt, moss, oil and grease, loose particles, cement
laitance and all other deleterious materials which will affect
the adhesion of the coating with the substrate. Cracks and
potholes shall be repaired with concrete repair mortar from
the Polycrete* range.
Metal surface:
Clean the surface of all rust scales. This can be achieved by
wire brushing or grit blasting.

PRIMING

Polytex shall be diluted with 20% water and applied as
primer coat on the concrete surface to seal the pores
and stabilize the surface. The primer also functions as an
adhesion promoter for the top coats. This primer coat can
be applied by a brush, roller or airless spray and allowed to
dry completely before the application of acrylic coating. 

APPLICATION

Mix the contents of the drum prior to the application to
remove any sediment. Polytex can be applied by soft
bristled brush, roller or an airless spray. When applying
by airless spray then dilute the coating with approximately
5% water to reduce the viscosity of the coating. Apply
the first coat of undiluted material at a coverage rate of
1L/m²/coat to get a Dry Film thickness of 0.50 mm. It is
important to ensure that each coat has to be cured totally
before applying the next coat. The second coat should be
applied at right angle to the first at the same coverage
rate, to ensure a full unbroken coating to the substrate. For
improved strength and flexibility, embed a 65 g/m2 non
woven geo-textile membrane whilst the first coat is still wet
on all corner joints, fillets and pipe penetration joints. Allow
the coating to cure fully for 72 hours to achieve its full
properties.
