- Resistant to UV degradation allowing for long-term protection
Proper preparation should be followed to ensure adequate coating adhesion to substrate and to optimize product performance. Testing should be done to determine whether or not the following ASTM standard preparations are necessary to maximize coating adhesion and performance:
*Etching is not typically necessary*
- All curing agents, hardeners, oil, grease, form release oil, dirt, laitance, concrete dust or other contaminants must be removed prior to beginning coating processes. *Do not use over sealers containing waxes or silicone.
- Surface preparation methods should result in clean surface, devoid of contaminated surfaces with ideally an adequate surface profile (surface similar to medium grade sandpaper).
- Inspect surface for soundness. Repair or remove any surface irregularities and loose concrete. Use an approved crack filler on holes and cracks. When surface is clean, sound and dry proceed with coating application.
- When using for the first time it is advisable to coat a small test patch on representative concrete and verify adhesion level before proceeding to large scale coating projects.
How to Apply
- Shake mixture vigorously for 30 – 45 seconds and then let sit for 5 to 10 minutes before applying.
- Product may be thinned with water if required.
- ECO ADVANCE DUSTPROOFER & SEALER May be applied by spraying, rollers or by brush.
- In order to avoid “cracking” do not allow product to pool and do not apply the coats too thick during.
- To prevent lapping and dry marks be sure you are using the recommended coverage rate of 200-300 sq/ft per/gal.
- Avoid over-application, heavy runs and drips should be brushed or rolled smooth.
- If ideal surface preparation is not possible the addition of 2 oz. per gallon of Eco-Bond Adhesion Promotor can be used to increase coating adhesion and performance. This also improves adhesion on metal surfaces.
- Metal surfaces should be clean and free of rust and contaminants. If rust is present, removal with high pressure wash is advised. A metal primer is recommended if all rust cannot be removed.
Allow approximately 2 hours for coating to dry before applying additional coats.
Pad Application: Pour a 6” to 8” wide line of finish along the starting wall. Draw a clean, pre-dampened applicator forward. Moving the finish toward the opposite wall. Hold the applicator at a “snowplow” angle to maintain a wet edge at all times. (Maintain at least 3” wide wet edge at all times to ensure proper coverage rate.) To prevent lapping and dry marks, be sure you are using the recommended coverage of 400 to 500 sq. ft. per gallon. Roller Application: Pour a 4” to 6” wide line of finish along the starting wall Roll at moderate speed using a short nap roller (maintain at least 3” wide wet edge at all times). Spray
Application: Spray until substrate is uniformly coated. Avoid over application, heavy runs and drip should be thoroughly brushed into surface. On extremely porous substrates a second coat may need to be applied. Do not spread too thin. Allow your first coat to dry 2 to 4 hours.
