Application Details

  • Mixing: Stir before use with a flat paddle to an even consistency. Stir occasionally during use.
  • Method: Roller, brush.
  • Thinning: ProGold Mineral Turpentine.
  • Cleaning: Remove as much of the product as possible from the application equipment before cleaning with ProGold Mineral Turpentine.

Conditions:

  • Relative humidity of less than 85%, preferably between 10: 00 and 16: 00.

Drying time: 
6 hours. 
Note:  Higher temperatures will accelerate the drying times (approximately halved for every 10°C increase), whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying time (approximately doubled for every 10°C decrease).

Recoating time:
 18-24 hours at 23°C with substrate moisture level of 15% or below. Higher moisture levels up to 40% will require up to 48 hours before recoating.

Requirements:
 One coat as a primer, two to three coats as waterproofing barrier.
