INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
SURFACE PREPARATION - CONCRETE
It is essential that the substrate surfaces are correctly prepared prior to application. New concrete or cementitious substrates should have been placed for at least 28 days, unless specially water reduced and give a protimeter reading of less than 75% RH before applying the Aquasol system. All substrates should be sound and free from contamination with oil, grease and other matter. Any oil or grease contamination must be removed completely by grinding, scabbling or shotblasting the contaminated areas to provide a clean substrate. It may be possible to prepare lightly contaminated
areas by treatment with XD80 Degreaser (please refer to Technical Services Department). Laitance should be removed by vacuum blasting, grinding or light scabbling. Old concrete floors should be prepared by one of the mechanical methods mentioned above. Ensure that all concrete substrates are free from rising damp.
SURFACE PREPARATION - STEEL
When applying to steelwork the surface should be cleaned to a bright metal finish by either grinding or shotblasting to S.A. 2.5. A two-pack epoxy zinc primer should then be used prior to the application of the Aquasol.
SURFACE PREPARATION - WOOD
Timber surfaces should be sanded to a clean base and be free from dust, oil or grease prior to the application of Aquasol.
MIXING AND APPLICATION
AQUASOL is a two component system, supplied in pre-weighed units ready to mix on site. Mixing is made easier by using an electric drill with a mixer paddle. Pour the entire contents of the hardener container into the base container and
mix to an even creamy consistency. When thoroughly mixed (after approximately 5 minutes) it should be allowed to stand for 5 minutes before use. Aquasol has a usable life of 2-3 hours after mixing, depending on temperature. Application is by brush or roller. Two or three coats are recommended depending on the porosity of the substrate.
COVERAGE AND PACK SIZES
Pack Size kg - Pack Size ltr - Approx. Coverage Per Coat
3kg - 2.5 ltr - 18-24 m2
6kg - 5 ltr - 36-48 m2
10kg - 8 ltr - 60-80 m2
N.B. Coverage is dependent on surface texture and porosity
AQUASOL is a non-flammable product and has very low odour. Aquasol should not be allowed to come into contact with skin and eyes or be swallowed. Epoxy resins and hardeners may act as skin sensitizers to some people. Gloves, goggles and a suitable barrier cream should therefore be used. Ensure adequate ventilation if working in enclosed areas. Skin contamination with any of the products should be removed immediately with soap and water. In the event that mixed Aquasol comes into contact with the skin, it must be removed before it hardens with a good quality resin removing cream, followed by washing with soap and water. Do not use solvent. If accidental eye contamination occurs irrigate with copious quantities of clean water and seek medical advice. If ingestion of any of the materials takes place, seek medical
attention immediately. Do not educe vomiting.
All tools and equipment should be cleaned with water immediately after use. Spillage should be absorbed with sand or sawdust and disposed of in accordance with statutory regulations.
Shelf life at least 12 months if stored in original containers between 10 degrees Celsius and 25 degrees Celsius.
