- Ensure the floor is clean and all weak or loose paints or screeds are removed.
- Once cleared, carry out the final surface preparation using: Etch IT – for a clean, unpainted surface. Degrease IT – for floors with oil and grease contamination. Mechanical preparation – is necessary if you need to remove old coatings screeds or if you are wanting to smooth out the surface.
- Ensure your application tools are unwrapped, made up and ready to use.
- Having fully prepared the substrate, add all the contents of the curing agent – Part B to the epoxy resin – Part A.
- Mix thoroughly for several minutes using a low-speed electric drill until a clear homogenous mix is obtained
- Keep all components at room temperature for at least 24 hours before use.
- The material should be poured into the crack immediately after mixing using a jug or suitable pouring vessel.
- A bead of caulk/ sealant may be applied temporarily along each side of the crack to prevent the flow of the material onto the surrounding area.
- Surplus mixed material may generate considerable heat within the container at the end of the pot life.
- Any unused material is best mixed with sand to reduce heat output before leaving to cure off and then discarding.
