Step by Step

Surface Preparation

The surface must be structurally sound and free of oil, grease, dust and other contaminants which will affect the bonding. Any structural cracks and potholes shall be repaired with a suitable repair mortar from the Polycrete* range of repairmortars. To fill pores, blowholes, minor honey combs or as a skim coat, Polyfill AC* shall be used. The surface to be treated should be presaturated with water prior to application. However, any standing water shall be removed prior to application. The temperature of the substrate should be min 10°C and min 3°C above the dew point of the air, temperature and relative humidity measured in the vicinity of the substrate.

Primer

Apply a penetrative primer coat of solvent based acrylic primer (Polyprime AC) to the prepared dry surface. This will impregnate the surface and form an impervious barrier to moisture and other environmental contaminants.depending on the porosity and nature of the substrate a second coat is recommended to be given after the first coat has dried off completely.

Mixing

Mix the contents of the Polyguard 102 T pail thoroughly before use.

Application

The first coat of Polyguard 102 T is to be applied on the dry primer. The coating can be applied with a brush, roller or an airless spray. Apply the second coat at right angles to the firstcoat at the same rate. The second coat is to be applied only after the first is completely dry.

Curing

The applied material will achieve its full properties after 7 days of application.
