      • (2) Procedure
        • (a) Mix Ratio: 1 part mixed Hydro-Seal 75 to 2 parts Portland Cement
        • (b) Mortar joints, edges and the at perimeter with Epoxy Mortar System
        • (c) Lay fiberglass tape into mortared areas (joints, edges and at perimeter), as flashing, to avoid water intrusion.
  • 2. Concrete: should fully cured, clean, free of paint, oils, silicones, hardeners or other foreign materials. See Appendix A

B. INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

  • 1. Tools:
    • a) 3/8" or 1/2" nap roller
    • b) notched 1/8"squeegee
    • c) fiberglass chopping gun
  • 2. Procedure
    • a) Apply prime coat
      • (1) Apply Hydro-Seal 75 using a 3/8" or 1/2" nap roller.
      • (2) Drying Time: until surface is dry to touch
    • b) Apply body coat
      • (1) Apply NI-21 100% Epoxy using notched 1/8" squeegee
      • (2) Introduce fiberglass into epoxy with recommended chop gun.
      • (3) Back-roll to set glass into wet epoxy.
      • (4) Drying Time: until surface is dry to touch
    • c) Apply Top Coat
      • (1) Apply NI-21 100% Epoxy (pigmented) over system as finish coat with short 3/8" or 1/2" nap roller.
      • (2) Drying Time: until surface is dry to touch

F. SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

New Concrete must be cured a minimum of 28 days, free of sealers, curing compounds, oil, grease, hydrostatic pressure and moisture transmission. Old concrete or cement block must be clean; free of paint, stain or other foreign material that would prevent proper hydration and bonding. Refer to Northern Industries general preparation of sub-surfaces, installation manual page 7 through 14.

G. INSTALLATION

  • Prepare and abrade substrate, removing all foreign materials.
  • Fill and smooth all cracks with two component water soluble, heavy-bodied resin and Portland cement.
  • Lay fiberglass tape 3 inches width into prim coat, over all joints, edges and at perimeter, as flashing, to avoid water intrusion.
  • Apply 100% solids, clear, two component epoxy resin using recommended chop gun. Roll to set glass into epoxy. Allow drying.
  • Apply 100% solids, pigmented epoxy over system as finish coat with short nap roller.
