Surface should be intact, clean, dry, and free of any contaminant. We recommend removing sand, dust, dirt, grease, wax, silicone, and glue which could affect the bonding of the TECHNO COATING™ to the concrete surface.
CONCRETE: Mechanical or chemical preparation (muriatic acid). It is very important to remove existing coatings before applying TECHNO COATING.
Minimum age of concrete surfaces prior to application is 28 days, depending on curing and drying conditions.
IMPORTANT: Moisture content of all concrete substrates must be no greater than ~4%. This moisture content can be measured with a calibrated moisture meter. We recommend applying TECHNO COATING early in the morning or late in the afternoon so that the concrete floor is not too warm. Do not apply on porous surfaces where moisture vapor transmission will occur during application.
LIMITATIONS: TECHNO COATING™ is best installed by skilled and experience applicators. We strongly recommend validating your application by doing a test on a 12 x 12-inch area before launching production.
CLEANING PROCEDURES: Collect and contain spills with an absorbent product. Discard in accordance with applicable regulations. Once hardened, product can only be removed mechanically. Clean tools and brushes with POLYMÈRES TECHNOLOGIES POLY CLEANER™.
AMBIENT AND SUBSTRATE TEMPERATURES:
To apply TECHNO COATING™, we recommend an ambient temperature of 22°C (72°F), relative humidity less than 70% and both TECHNO COATING parts (A/B) at a temperature of 22°C (72°F). At lower temperatures, curing times will be extended.
MIXING OF PARTS A/B:
Pour the contents of the part B container (small one) into the part A container (large one). Do not hand mix the TECHNO COATING™ A/B parts resin materials; mechanically mix with a drill and jiffy mixer only. Mix thoroughly for a minimum of 10 minutes making sure to regularly scrape the sides and bottom of the container. Use a 2-inch metal spatula to scrape the sides and move the resin towards the center of the container. When done, do not leave the resin in the container, pour it onto the floor and use a roller or a straight/notched squeegee to spread TECHNO COATING.
We recommend applying the first coat (thickness of~0.010 of an inch) as a sealer and a thickness of 0.015 inch for the topcoat.
