FILM THICKNESS PER COAT

Typical recommended specification range

Dry film thickness                            1-3 mm

Wet film thickness                           1-3 mm

Theoretical spreading rate           3-3.2 kg/m²

SURFACE PREPARATION

To secure lasting adhesion to the subsequent product all surfaces shall be clean, dry and free from any contamination.

APPLICATION

Application method:

The product can be applied by:

Brush:                   Use a stiff nylon brush.

Roller:                   Recommended.

To avoid air bubbles, it is very important to pierce the coating with a spiked roller when desired film thickness is achieved.

Conditions during application:

The temperature of the substrate should be minimum 10°C and at least 3°C above the dew point of the air, measured in the vicinity of the substrate. Good ventilation is usually required in confined areas to ensure proper drying. The moisture content in the substrate should not exceed 4% (by weight). The coating should not be exposed to oil, chemicals or mechanical stress until fully cured.

PRODUCT MIXING RATIO (BY VOLUME)

NO PART MIXING. Use a slow speed drill and mixing paddle. Pour the full contents of the mixed material onto the floor immediately after mixing is completed.

The temperature of base and curing agent is recommended to be 18°C or higher when the paint is mixed.
