Please consult the technical data sheet for full technical product data.

Preparation:
Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Remove all loose material – wire brushing is advisable. Sweep clean or vacuum.
The surface must be free from grease, oil or contamination. A gas torch will help to remove oil from the surface. If this is not practical, Polycote Degrease IT may be used to clean the area but this must be thoroughly rinsed off and the substrate dried, before applying Cretex EP.

Mixing:
Important: Thoroughly stir both parts individually before mixing ensuring the resin is evenly dispersed, making sure you get right to the bottom of the container.
Having fully prepared the substrate, simply mix the parts A and B together at a ratio of 1:1 to the quantity required, whether it be a complete unit, or a spoonful for a small repair. Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation.
Keep all components at room temperature 24 hours before use.

Application:
Apply by trowel, or by hand for small isolated areas, wearing suitable protective gloves.
Being resin-rich, Cretex EP has a typically sticky consistency and smoothing may be assisted by wetting the trowel using Polycote Solvent Cleaner as a release agent.
For vertical repairs – where step nosings or expansion joint edges have broken away, the vertical face of the repair material should be supported to prevent slumping.
Suitable sized wooden shuttering should be covered with polythene to reduce adhesion, and should be removed as soon as the material is firm.
