- Whilst application may be made to damp surfaces (e.g. new concrete) they must not be wet.
- Moisture content of less than 10% is recommended to allow sufficient penetration of primer into concrete.
- To test for excessive moisture, cover area overnight with a plastic sheet and observe condensation on the plastic sheet or a noticeable discolouration of the concrete.
- Add part A to part B. Mix thoroughly to a uniform milky colour. Mixing ratio 1: 2, 5 by volume.
- Total contents of part A and part B must be mixed together. No variation to this ratio is acceptable.
