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 compatibility 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 should be treated with Watco Galvaprime or similar galvanised metal primer.
The tall outer tin contains a tin of Resin and a tin of Activator. Remove these two tins and stir the contents of each thoroughly (The Watco Paint Mixer is ideal for mixing two part products). Decant both tins into the tall outer tin. The two components should then be very thoroughly mixed together using a wide bladed stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is ideal. Mix for 2-3 minutes until an even colour and consistency are obtained. Best results are achieved in warm (minimum 10°C – 15°C) dry conditions with good ventilation.
If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first.
Apply by simulated sheepskin roller. A paint brush may be used for cutting in. Leave approx. 8-12 hours if recoating is required.
