Typical Physical Properties:

Technical data should be considered representative or typical only and should not be used for specification purposes.

Limitations: Not recommended for outdoor use

Surface Preparation:

For METAL SURFACES, use a wire brush or sandpaper to remover rust and scale from the surface to be protected.

Surfaces may be shot blasted or abraded using a wire wheel for best results. All dirt, grease, and old paint should be removed. A clean dry surface is essential for the best results.

Begin with a sound, clean, dry and roughened, oil-free application surface, as it is essential to the success and performance of this product.

Spot test surface by mixing a small quantity of the resin and hardener without the silica filler. Apply the compound to a small, clean test area. Old paint may wrinkle or lift. If it DOES NOT, wait five (5) days and test the bond strength by scraping surface with a sharp instrument. A pressure-sensitive tape test can also be used as follows: cut an “X” into surface and place tape firmly over the cut. Remove the tape with a hard, fast pull. If the coating fails either test, proceed with instructions for previously coated concrete (see below).

For NEW POURED CONCRETE, allow to fully cure (28 days @ 70°F)prior to application. Remove any curing membrane by sanding or etching with a strong detergent.

For OLD CONCRETE, thoroughly clean surface with a grease-cutting detergent to remove grease and oils, and remove any loose or unsound concrete by chipping, scarifying, shot blasting, sanding, or grinding. Proceed as for new poured concrete.

For PREVIOUSLY COATED CONCRETE, applications should be considered short term because the coating system is only as strong as its weakest component. Remove any peeling or degraded paint by sanding or using a paint stripper. For intact paint, thoroughly clean the surface with a strong detergent, then lightly sand to remove any gloss. Treat any areas worn down to the original concrete as bare concrete.
