Step by Step

Substrate Preparation

The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all contaminants like dust, traces of curing compound, oil and grease. All surface imperfections, protrusions, structurally unsound and friable concrete must be removed and repaired.

Priming

It is highly recommended to apply a priming coat prior to the application of the Polycoat RBE 5 coating on the substrate. The primer can be prepared in the site by diluting Polycoat RBE 5 with 20% water and applying this diluted coat as the primer. For very dry and porous substrates apply two coats of this primer. 

Application

Stir the contents of the drum thoroughly before application to remove all sediments. depending on the dry film thickness required, apply the rubberized bitumen coating 1–4m²/L/coat. On vertical areas, it is recommended to apply the coating in multiple layers in order to avoid sagging of the heavy bodied coating. Subsequent coats shall be applied only after the previous coat dries off completely and shall be applied at right angles to the previous coat.
