Surface Preparation


  • Surface must be clean and dry. Employ adequate methods to remove dirt, dust, oil and all other contaminants that could interfere with adhesion of the coating.


  • Normally applied over clean and dry recommended primers. When applied directly to steel, blast clean to min. Sa2 or power tool clean to St2 (ISO 8501-1).


  • Apply over clean and dry surface. Concrete must be cured min. 28 days at 24°C and RH 50% or equivalent. A test patch is recommended to check adhesion.
