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

Priming is always recommended prior to coating as it not only penetrates into the concrete pores and seals the substrate. It also acts as an adhesion promoter for further coatings. The primer coat can be made in the site by diluting the same bitumen emulsion with 20% water. The primer may be applied by a brush, roller or airless spray. Allow the primer to dry before any further coats are applied. However, if the primer after application is left open for more than 24 hours after it becomes dry, clean the surface of any settled dust and apply a fresh coat of the primer.
