Application Instructions


Substrate Quality

The substrate must be sound, clean, dry, free from contaminants such as dirt, grease, oil, old coatings, release agents, laitance and other adhesion preventing or influencing substances.

On high absorbent, non-sound, contaminated, not cement based substrates precautions have to be taken and a suitable primer has to be used.

Substrate Preparation

Concrete Substrate:

  • Concrete substrate must be prepared mechanically to achieve an open textured surface.
  • Weak areas in the substrate must be removed and surface defects such as blowholes and voids must be fully exposed.
  • All dust, loose and friable material must be completely removed from all surfaces before application of the product, preferably by brush and/or vacuum.
  • Open voids and blowholes need to be closed with a suitable Sika pore filling mortar.
  • The roughness of the substrate needs to be levelled with a suitable Sika rendering and levelling mortar.

Steel Surface

  • Steel surface must be prepared mechanically using abrasive blast cleaning.
  • The level SSPC-SP 10 “near white metal blast cleaned” or level Sa 2 ½ according to ISO EN 12944-4 has to be achieved.
  • Welds and joints have to be prepared according to EN 14879, part 1.
  • After blast cleaning remove all dust dirt and blasting material.
  • In order to maintain the surface conditions after blast cleaning air-conditioning is recommended.

Mixing

  • Prior to mixing stir part A mechanically.
  • When all of part B has been added to part A mix continuously for 3 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved.
  • Use a low speed electrical stirrer (300–400 rpm) to avoid air entrapment.
  • To ensure proper mixing pour material into a clean container and stir again.

Application

  • Apply by brush, roller or airless spray.

Cleaning of Tools

  • Clean all tools with Thinner C immediately after use.
  • Hardened and/or cured material can only be removed mechanically.



Limitations


  • Do not apply Sikagard 62 on moist substrates
  • Sag resistance on vertical surface is approx. 200 μm.
  • Freshly applied Sikagard 62 must be protected from damp, condensation and water for at least 24 hours
  • For exact colour matching ensure using material from the same control batch numbers.

Question: 

Hi, there is a fountain in my apartment compound that has a fungus build-up and we are looking for a solution that can prevent the fungus build-up. This happens very often and we repaint this fountain every 2 to 3 months due to this. Is there a coating that can prevent this fungus buildup from your company?

Answer: 

Sikagard 62 can be applied to the concrete fountain (if preparation guidance is followed), however we cannot suggest that it will prevent fungus build up any more or less than what you are currently using as it has no special attributes as a product in relation to this.

Question: 

I have an old garden pond with a rendered and previously painted surface which has been leaking. I have repaired the visible cracks in the pond and now want to repaint it with a black coating which is not harmful to fish/plants and which will help to minimise leakage through any tiny cracks I have missed. Which of your products would you recommend? Thank you and regards Dr Andrew Mackintosh

Answer: 

We don't offer any products to paint fish ponds that will fill in any cracks, but Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber Paint is available in black and is suitable for use in a fish pond. It will help protect the concrete underneath providing waterproof protection. You will have to wait two weeks before putting the fish back into the pond to make sure the paint is fully cured and all the solvents have been released.

Question: 

Hi, does this adhere to cured epoxy resin? I am looking for a drinking water safe paint to coat an internal fibreglass watertank which I've coated with approximately 6 coasts of West Systems epoxy resin. Thank you.

Answer: 

Sikagard 62 can adhere to other epoxy coatings, however as the existing coating is not a Sika product you would have to run adhesion trials to be certain. Usual preparation would be to use an abrasive pad on the existing coating, solvent wipe with Sika Thinner C, let it evaporate and over coat with Sikagard 62.

However, in the DWI Instructions for Use manual for Sikagard 62, it states to remove all existing coatings from the substrate, of which this manual has to be followed in order to achieve the DWI approval.
