DIRECTIONS FOR USE
The substrate should be a smooth or semi-smooth sound surface such as concrete or metal. It is most important to ensure that thorough surface preparation is undertaken prior to application of the Master Coat Coating.
Ensure concrete is free from excessive laitance, grease, oil, curing compound etc. Ensure concrete is sound. Cut back wherever necessary and make good using suitable cementitious or epoxy repair system. Ensure all blow holes and surface imperfections are made good prior to application of the coating. Wire brushing followed by degreasing, acid etching or grit blasting may be necessary to remove laitance. Ensure concrete is at least 28 days old.
All previous surface treatments should be removed taking the surface back to base metal. The base metal should be abraded and preferably shot blasted. Cleaning with solvent or a strong detergent is advisable to ensure surface is free from grease etc, Do not allow surface to re-oxidise before application of Master Coat.
