Preparation & Application

Surfaces 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.

For most applications: SSPC-SP6 to obtain a blast profile of 1.0-2.0 mils (25-50 microns). May also be applied over SSPC-SP 3 for certain applications.

Galvanized Steel
Galvanizing requires a roughened surface for optimum adhesion/performance of high build epoxies. Remove any contaminants per SSPC-SP1; ensure there are no chemical treatments that may interfere with adhesion; and abrade the surface to establish a suitable roughness (typically 1 mil). SSPC-SP7 or SP11 are acceptable methods.

Concrete or CMU
Concrete shall be designed, placed, cured, and prepared per NACE No. 6/SSPC-SP 13, latest edition. Abrade to remove all laitance, loose concrete, etc. and to create surface profile in accordance with ICRI CSP 2-5.

Power mix separately, then combine and power mix. DO NOT MIX PARTIAL KITS.

Normally not required but may thin as follows:

Spray: Up to 15 oz/gal (12%) with Thinner 10.

Brush & Roller: Up to 16 oz/gal (12%) with Thinner 33. Thinner 236E or 243E may be used as an exempt thinner in lieu of those listed above. Thinner 229 is used when very hot surfaces up to 140°F are encountered.
