Do not apply outside of the range 10 °C to 25 °C. Localised heating or cooling equipment may be required outside this range to achieve ideal temperature conditions. To reduce the risk of “blooming” caused by condensation, the climate above the uncured floor should be maintained at least 3°C above the dew point for at least 48 hours after application.
The ambient temperature of the works area should be a minimum of 15°C. Localised heating or cooling equipment may be required outside this range during the application and curing period, if not adhered to this can affect the colour and appearance of the system. Materials and substrate temperature must be above 10°C.
Concrete: Concrete substrates must be a minimum of 28 days old, dry, clean and free of surface laitance and contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, poorly bonded coatings and surface treatments. Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. In coatings, there is a tendency for the finish to mirror imperfections in the substrate. Grinding, or light vacuum-contained shot-blasting is therefore preferred over planing for these systems. Concrete must include a functional damp-proof membrane. Oil and Grease: For large areas of contamination, use hot compressed air treatment. Small, isolated contamination should be removed using an appropriate degreaser, rinsed thoroughly and allowed to completely dry. A coat of Flowprime OT should then be applied (see separate datasheet).
Materials should be stored at 15 ºC to 25 ºC for a minimum of 8 hours prior to use. 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) for at least 3 minutes until homogeneous. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing vessel several times as unmixed material will result in uncured patches in the final finish.
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.
Best results are obtained in warm conditions (minimum 15 ºC). Apply with a medium pile simulated sheepskin roller working well into the surface taking care not to exceed the coverage rate. Edges and difficult to reach areas may be applied thinly by brush.
An anti-slip finish may be achieved by fully sprinkling the first coat with 0.3 - 0.6 mm kiln dried silica sand at 2 - 4 kg/m² . Allow the first coat to fully cure (24 hours at 15 ºC or longer in colder temperatures) then remove all excess sand with a stiff broom and vacuum and apply a second coat to encapsulate the grains. Coverage rate will depend on surface profile but will be greater than for the first coat.
