Application

Surface preparation

Concrete - Concrete to be treated must be at least four weeks old, completely dry and free of surface laitance (a weak dusty layer on concrete), contaminants and any previous poorly bonded coatings. All traces of grease or oil should be removed with Watco Bio D (or similar degreasant) and the area thoroughly washed off and allowed to dry. Very smooth concrete or concrete with surface laitance should be etched with Watco Etch & Clean to ensure adequate adhesion. The concrete should be thoroughly washed down and allowed to dry after treatment with Watco Etch & Clean.

Stone - Stone should be dry and free of all loose surface material and contaminants.

Painted Surfaces - Previously painted surfaces should be thoroughly abraded by sanding to improve adhesion and to remove any weak or loose material. A trial area is advisable to test compatability with previous coatings.

Bare Metal - Remove any rust and flaking material by disc grinding or wire brushing. Apply the coating immediately after preparation to the clean metal surface. Grease or oil can be removed using Watco Bio D a solvent free degreaser. Allow the metal to dry before coating.

Galvanised Metal - Do not apply the coating direct to galvanised metal surfaces without first preparing using Watco Galvaprime. Watco Galvaprime is a single pack wash primer for use on galvanised surfaces prior to the application of Watco Safety Grip. Surfaces treated with Watco Galvaprime should be allowed to dry before coating.

Mixing

Pour the liquid contents of the two small tins (resin and hardener) into the larger outer tin and mix thoroughly until uniform in colour. Do not mix in the anti-slip aggregate.

The mixed components must be decanted into a shallow roller tray and used immediately. If the mixed components are not decanted the mixing tin will quickly become very hot and could pose a hazard.

Application

If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first.

A pile-type roller (not foam) should be used to apply the mixed resin and hardener. Pour the mixed resin and hardener into a shallow roller tray. It is recommended that the product be applied in the following manner:

  • Apply the mixed resin and hardener by roller to a measured area of 5m
  • Immediately sprinkle the anti-slip aggregate uniformally onto the wet coat to obtain the desired surface finish (total or light coverage)
  • Using the same roller that was used to apply the mixed resin and hardener roll over the sprinkled aggregate to bed in and cover the anti-slip aggregate

It is not normally necessary to re-charge the roller with mixed resin unless very heavy quantities of grit have been applied.

In exceptional temperature conditions advice should be obtained from Watco’s Technical Department.
