Application conditions The relative humidity of the concrete should not exceed 97%. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or coating should not fall below +15ºC during application or drying. Relative humidity of air should not exceed 80 %.
Preparation New concrete
Remove laitance by power grinding or hydrochloric acid etching. Choose the method best suited for the premises. After grinding remove dust carefully with a vacuum cleaner. Hydrochloric acid etching is carried out with diluted hydrochloric acid (1 part concentrated hydrochloric acid, 4 parts water). Rinse with plenty of water. Dry the floor.

Old concrete
Remove all grease, oil, chemicals and other impurities by MAALIPESU detergent. Remove old peeling paint layer by grinding. Clean out pot-holes removing all loose friable material. Open cracks with e.g. an abrasive tool. Remove loose material and dust.
Priming Prime with 5–10% thinned Fontefloor EP Clear lacquer. Add always the water needed to a ready mixture and stir thoroughly. Pour the mixture onto the floor, apply with a rubber trowel and level with a roller.
Patching Fill holes and cracks with a mixture of unthinned Fontefloor EP Clear and dry, clean sand. Mixing ratio e.g. 1 part by volume of mixture and 1–2 parts by volume of sand of grain size 0.1–0.6 mm. Sand the patched areas before finishing.
Note! Concrete surface should always be primed before patching.
Overcoating Finishing should be done not earlier than 16 hours after the priming. If the primed surface is not overcoated within 48 hours, it should be abraded.
Use 5–10% water to thin the Fontefloor EP Clear lacquer for the topcoat. Pour the mixture onto the floor, apply with a rubber trowel and level with a roller. Apply as thin as possible.
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. Mix the correct proportions of base and hardener thoroughly (3–5 minutes) by using a low speed industrial hand drill with a paddle. Insufficient mixing or incorrect mixing ratio will result in uneven drying of the surface, weaken the properties of the coating and risk the success of the application.
Cleaning of tools Water. Equipment should be cleaned immediately after use before the lacquer has dried.
