Application & Mixing Guide
1. The surface needs to be clean and free of all contaminants.
2. Make sure relative humidity is below 75% and there will be no rain in the 12-hour period following application.
3. Repair any cracks and defects with APC’s Epoxy Putty Concrete Repair Kit.
4. A black or very dark primer coat of EPO100T® is usually applied using 15% - 20% Epoxy Thinners.
5. Ensure that the primer coat has thoroughly sealed the surface, if in doubt apply another primer coat of EPO100T® using 10% 150 Epoxy Thinners. This coat should look even and covered in full, not patchy in any way.
6. Once primer coat has dried (8-10 hours) you are now ready to apply the Metallic Coat. First sand the primer coat with a 100-grit sanding screen or paper, vacuum debris and use a microfibre mop to collect all dust.
7. Mix 1L of Metallic Tint for every 30L of Glaze and pour on the floor in long trails at the rate of 1 Litre per square meter.
**DO NOT USE THINNERS ON THIS STEP**
8. Use spiked shoes to spread the Metallic Coat with a squeegee or lint free roller (microfibre short nap is suitable).
9. Once the Metallic Coat is cured (24-48 hours) a clear top coat can be applied. Use either Tetrathane® (non-yellowing Urethane), EPO100G® Clear Glaze or Polyaspartic.
10. 24 hours after the clear coat has been applied the surface is ready for light foot traffic, full cure is 7 days, Vehicle Traffic 7 Days.

Therefore, the sample or product may not look exactly like the image that you see on your screen. *Coverage rates for coatings are based on smooth dense surfaces. The surface texture and porosity of the concrete can vary considerably and allowances should be made for this. *Premium colour range will attract a surcharge.
