Preparation :

On Wood : Make sure the wood surface is clean, dry and well sanded to create an anchoring profile. It is important to seal porous surfaces beforehand with a thin layer of epoxy or varnish sealer such as live edge with bark and the cavities that are susceptible to let air escape, it may cause air bubbles.

On a Stain: If the product is applied over a non-sealing stain such as TANDEM-1, ensure that the cure time is 100% complete

On Concrete : The concrete must be clean, dry and without a trace of grease, oil, paint, cure agent or any contaminant that may affect the adhesion of the product. If the application is on new concrete, a cure time of at least 28 days is necessary before applying the product.

The resurfacing using a mechanical polisher for concrete remains the best tool for a good preparation. However, you can prepare the surface by sanding on most residential projects. Sand the surface using a sander with a 60 grit paper. You must remove completely all coats of paint.

On old Epoxy : If the product is applied on an epoxy surface that has been finished previously, more than 24 hours, the surface must be sanded with an abrasive 60 grit and properly cleaned with a vacuum before the application. This preparation is necessary in order to ensure an adequate adherence. Make a proper adherence test if there are doubts about the preparation of the surface.

Mixing :

It is important to calculate the mixture by volume (mL) and not by weight. 

Before proceeding to the final mixing, it is recommended to mix well parts A and B of the product individually at a low speed. A proper attention should be taken for the coloured versions of the product since the pigments may have separated themselves from the rest during storage. The mixing is completed only until there is a complete uniform colour.

Then, combine the two containers of part A with the container of part B with a mixer using a drill at low speed (300-450 tr/min) in a clean container. Be sure to use clean equipment in order to not contaminate the product. Mix slowly and carefully for three minutes in order to minimize the imprisonment of air in the product. Make sure to scrape well the sides all the way to bottom of the mixing container. For small projects, make sure to mix only the necessary quantity of product.

Once the product is mixed, you have 45 minutes to apply CRYSTALOPOXY.

Application :

Before applying CRYSTALOPOXY, make sure the temperature of the air and the area is between 10-30oC and the humidity level is no more than 85 %. Pour the product directly on the surface by tracing lines. Then spread the product using a scraper (squeegee), then roll with an 13 mm epoxy roller in both direction, parallel and perpendicular, in order to get a uniform surface.

CRYSTALOPOXY can be used as a base coat (directly on the concrete) and finishing coat. We recommend the application of a base coat and a finishing coat for a total thickness of approximately 20 mils.

On very porous surfaces, a primer coat of is recommended before using CRYSTALOPOXY.

A thickness of 4 to 6 mils of a primer coat is recommended.

Cleaning of tools :

The hardened product can be eliminated without restrictions. To eliminate according to provincial and federal regulations in place, the exceeding liquid of part A and B must be mixed together for it to harden and. All non-hardened liquids must be cleaned with citrus solvent, alcohol or any solvent following the instructions of the manufacturer.
