Flowcoat does not normally require a primer. On porous concrete it is recommended that Flowprime SF is used.
Pre-mix the coloured resin component before use. Add the hardener component to the coloured resin component and mix using a low speed electric mixer (200 - 500 rpm) fitted with a mixing paddle designed to minimise air entrainment for 1 - 2 minutes until homogeneous. Care should be taken to ensure that any material adhering to the sides and bottom of the mixing vessel is thoroughly mixed in otherwise uncured patches may result.
Important: Both liquids are pre-weighed and designed to be mixed together in their entirety. It is essential that the full amounts are mixed together and until homogenous to ensure the product cures correctly and to the desired finish
Apply by brush, roller or airless spray. Depending on the substrate porosity, the first coat may be diluted with up to 10% water to aid penetration. The water should be added after mixing of the resin and hardener components is complete. Avoid ponding of the coating as trapped water will lead to incomplete cure. Do not apply subsequent coats until the previous coat is completely dry. This will depend on temperature, atmospheric humidity and degree of ventilation. Adequate ventilation and air movement is necessary. Each coat should be applied at right angles to the previous coat in order to minimise imperfections and unevenness overall. Uneven application may lead to differences in gloss level across the cured floor
