Directions for Use

Surface Preparation: Concrete surfaces must be clean, sound, dry and free of all foreign materials such as oils, grease, loose paint, dust, and laitance. This may be accomplished by sand blasting or scarifying, followed by an air blast to remove dust and debris from the application area. New concrete surfaces should be acid etched, rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry. Steel surfaces should be sand blasted to SSPC-SP-10 near white. Water blast or mechanical abrading is an alternative method, as long as all rust, scale, paint, and other foreign materials are removed. Steel must be coated same day as cleaned. Wood surfaces should be roughened by sanding. Mix thoroughly 1 volume of Component A with 1 volume of Component B, being sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing container. Apply mixed epoxy by brush, roller or notched trowel. Do not mix more than can be applied in 30 minutes @ 75°F. Broadcast silicon carbide granules evenly over the surface before it starts to set.

Pot life: 30-45 minutes @77°F.
Coverage: 100 sq.ft/25 lb unit @ 16 mil thickness
