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.

Immersion: SSPC-SP10

Non-Immersion: SSPC-SP6

Surface Profile: 3.0 mils min. (75 microns)

Concrete or CMU
Concrete must be cured 28 days at 75°F (24°C) and 50% relative humidity or equivalent. Prepare surfaces in accordance with ASTM D4258 Surface Cleaning of Concrete and ASTM D4259 Abrading Concrete. Voids in concrete may require surfacing.

Mixing & Thinning
Power mix separately, then combine and power mix. When non-skid fillers are used, slowly mix into the mixed materials with the power mixer running. Allow a 15 minute induction time at 75°F (24°C) before application. Mixing time should be considered part of induction time. DO NOT MIX PARTIAL KITS.

To thin, 6-19 oz/gal with Thinner 213 after induction time. Exact amount of thinner will depend on job site conditions. Add only enough to assure uniform flow. For horizontal application (i.e. Platform decks) only may be thinned with Thinner #2. Use of thinners other than those supplied or recommended by Carboline may adversely affect product performance and void product warranty, whether expressed or implied.
