Surface preparation: All surfaces should be free from loose and flaking material, dirt, grease and vegetative growth such as moss. Brushing (Manual or Machine) may be suitable in particularly difficult areas such as those under trees or areas constantly in the shade.
Bituminous surfaces – weathered - It is recommended that asphalt, tarmacadam and other similar surfaces be allowed to through harden for up to 6 months before painting. Test trials should be carried out in the first instance on a small area.
Concrete & other cementitious surfaces – including powerfloat, tamped or brushed concrete, monoblocks & pavers – Ensure surface is sound, clean and free from laitance – we recommend a preparation method suitable for the specific location and surface is carried out before application of product, to ensure surface is properly prepared back to clean and sound substrate.
Examples of preparation methods that may be suitable are captive shot blasting, diamond grinding, scabbling or planing. It is critical that utmost attention is paid to cleanliness and good workmanship, whatever preparation method is used, as the presence of any loose material, dust, soiling or previous coatings are likely to reduce adhesion of new coatings.
New concrete should be left to harden before coating, as the curing process and residual moisture content can lead to product delamination if coated too early.
Primers: We recommend that all cementitious surfaces are primed with a mist coat of CourtCote, thinned at approx 30% using clean water
Mix thoroughly with power stirrer before use.
We recommend the use of airless spray equipment with minimum of 31 thou tip size, for best finish; it is usually necessary to remove inline filters to prevent clogging. Two coats are necessary for best results; the product may be thinned by up to 15%, using clean water, for first coat. Apply 2nd coat at right angles to the first coat and take care to apply evenly.
Do not apply when the air or surface temperature is below 10°C or less than 3°C above dew point, or if this is likely to occur during the curing period.
Do not apply when there is rain, mist, fog, or snow imminent; when humidity is high or the surface is wet with condensation or likely to be during the drying period.
Touch dry - 15-30 minutes at 15 deg C
Recoat time - 60-90 minutes at 15 deg C
Traffic time - 3 hours at 15 deg C
