Method of Use Surface Preparation The substrate must be firm, clean, dry and free from all contamination (e.g. oil, grease, fats, chemicals, rust, paint, form release and curing membrane residues, etc.). All loose particles and excess laitance should be removed by mechanical or chemical methods. The freshly applied cementitious mixtures must be cured at least 28 days.
Mixing For optimum performance, all components should be conditioned to between (18°C and 25°C) prior to use. Pour all Component B (hardener) into pail containing Component A (resin). Mix thoroughly by gloved hand or slow speed mixer to avoid air entrapment. Pour mixed liquids into mortar mixer. While mixing, slowly add Component C (aggregate) and mix until a homogenous and lump free mixture is achieved.
It can be applied by variety of instruments such as trowel, scraper or filling knife on to the prepared surface.
Uncured material may be cleaned from application tools, etc. by using thinner. Cured material can only be removed mechanically.
It depends on the surface condition but as a guide, it is about 1.7kg/m² for 1mm.
