Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
- 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.
- Remove the lids of Part A (may be marked as ‘Resin’ or ‘Base’) and Part B (may be marked as ‘Hardener’ or ‘Curing Agent’).
- Mix Part A separately to ensure any settlement in the can is stirred into the product.
- Mix Part A and Part B together using a slow-speed drill for 2-3 minutes until both are completely mixed together and smooth.
- Pour the mixed product into a roller scuttle or paint tray.
- Using a hand brush, paint the product around the edges of the area you are working in. Be careful not to waste the product.
- Once you have been painting the edge for around 5-10 minutes, start rolling the remaining product on the floor using a roller kit with a medium pile roller head. (Do not use foam). Please note: At this point you will only have 15-20 minutes left of your working time.
- To add a non-slip aggregate:
- As you are applying the coating, sprinkle the granules over the wet paint and, using the same roller, roll over the aggregate to cover it.
