Surface must be clean & free from dirt, grease, oil & any loose materials. Concrete is best to be acid etched with a 4:1 water to hydrochloric acid mix & then thoroughly scrubbed. Then wash off with water or water blast.
For surfaces in good condition and previously sealed surfaces, water blast well or clean & scrub with a surface cleaner then wash off well with water.
For well prepared & porous surfaces priming is not necessary. However, for dense concrete & smooth & glossy previously painted surfaces, priming is recommended. In these cases a number of primers can be used such as QA SB Primer & QA Supa Bond mixed 1:1 with cement. This extra step in uncertain situations ensures maximum adhesion of the coating system.
Apply 2 coats by roller & cut in with a brush or apply by airless spray gun. A coverage of around 8m²/ltr will be achieved per coat giving a total usage with 2 coats of 4m²/ltr.
Wash up is with water.
