Primer required:

(Please note, this is not definitive but simply mentioned as a guide)

WD Primer: The most popular primer for almost all substrates including concrete, stone, ceramic and quarry tiles, brick, stone, wood, terrazzo, etc.

DPM Primer: For areas suffering with rising damp

OT Primer: For oil and chemical contaminated substrates

EP Primer: Suitable for almost all substrates but specifically for porous and unstable surfaces where excellent penetration is needed to stabilise and strengthen the substrate.

Preparation:Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Recommended methods are:
Powerfloated concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster to remove weak laitance and provide a surface key for the coating. If this is not possible, chemically etch with Polycote Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before applying Flortex Professional.
Loose paint or rust – remove, using a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster, Floor Grinder or equivalent method.
Loose or friable concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shot blaster. If this is not possible, chemically clean with Polycote Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Oil or grease – use Hot Compressed Air for large areas of contamination. Smaller, isolated deposits may be chemically cleaned with Polycote Degrease IT, then rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry.
Prior to application of Flortex® Professional a suitable Polycote primer should be applied, depending on the type and condition of the surface.
Please contact Polycote technical helpline, and prepare the surface in accordance with the appropriate primer data sheet.
Having fully prepared the substrate, stir the individual components before mixing together. As pigment may ‘sink’, ensure that the mixing is very thorough and from the bottom of the container. Add Part ‘B’ to Part ‘A’ and thoroughly mix for at least 3 minutes. For best results use a heavy duty slow speed drill with a mixing paddle.Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation.
Flortex Professional may be applied by brush, roller or squeegee, depending on the film thickness required.
It is normally applied at a rate of 0.3kg to 0.5kg per 1m2 using a roller or squeegee. When the quantity of resin used exceeds 0.5kg/m2, air bubbles may become trapped within the coating. These are removed using a Polycote Spiked Roller. This must be carried out immediately after application of the resin before curing takes place. Spiked shoes should be worn to avoid disturbing the wet coating.
To achieve a HIGH BUILD or TEXTURED finish – having applied the resin at a rate of 0.5kg to 1.0kg/m2, then gradually sprinkle Kiln Dried Aggregate onto the WET resin at a rate of 2-3kg/m2. The quantity of aggregate required will depend on the thickness of the initial coating. If a textured surface is required, all ‘wet spots’ must be re-covered with aggregate. Please note: spiked rolling is unnecessary for the first coat when using aggregate. Allow first coat to fully cure (preferably 24 hours) before removing all excess aggregate. A final coat of Flortex® Professional should then be applied using a roller or squeegee. The thickness of this coat may be varied depending on the finish required.
