Application Guide

Equipment Type

Good quality brush and roller sleeve. Spray application will depend on the type of finish required.

Do not store mixed product in spray equipment to avoid damage.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be free from Rust, Oil, Grease, and all other surface contamination. New concrete must have a pH level less than 10 and had at least 28 days to cure. New and old Concrete should be Acid Etched using 1 Part Hydrochloric Acid or Nu EcoSafe Concrete Etch to 10 Parts Water. High Pressure Water Blast area (> 2000 Psi) and allow to completely dry. Painted concrete in poor condition should be stripped using our Nu Ecosafe range of paint strippers and acid etched before application.

Mixing

For Clear: Mix 3 Part A to 1 Part B. For Colours: Mix 4 Part A to 1 Part B. Drill mix, then leave to Stand for 10 minutes before using to allow full activation. Stirring with a stick by hand is inadequate.

Do not use after Pot Life has expired (2 hours for clear, 3 hours for colour).

Thinning

For use with spray, Aqua Epoxy may be thinned 10% - 15% with clean water. Do not thin for brush or rolling.

Bare concrete and masonry surfaces thin 20% - 25% for first coat application for penetration and adhesion.

Drying and Curing

Aqua Epoxy should be touch dry and able to be recoated after 2 hours. For a full cure, allow to dry for 7 days.

Warnings

Wear a suitable respirator for Spray application.

Ensure there is good air flow and ventilation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Safety Precautions

Sealing of smooth and sloping concrete surfaces will reduce pedestrian and vehicle safety. For greater slip reduction an Anti-Slip Additive can be mixed into the product and rolled out as a final coat. Testing is recommended before proceeding to ensure that a potential slip hazard is avoided. Refer to your Nutech specialist for alternative recommendations on steep, smooth surfaces.
