APPLICATION PROCEDURE

SURFACE PREPARATION

All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from any contaminates such as dust, oil, wax, grease, curing agents or other substances that may affect adhesion performance.

PRIMING

Porous Substrates: Prime with ASCOGUARD using brush or roller. Allow Primer to reach a touch dry film prior to apply. Do not over dilute Primer. Mix 1 part of Primer to 2/3 parts clean water. Extremely porous surfaces may require second coat.

THINNING

Not recommended but can be thinned up to 10% with clean water for workability if necessary.

APPLICATION METHOD

  1. ASCOGUARD is pre-mixed and ready to use.
  2. ASCOGUARD may be applied by brush or paint roller in two (2) to three (3) coats on a correctly prepared and primed surface.
  3. Recommended time interval of 6-8 hours between 2 coats.

CURING

Optimum performance level is reached after 24 hours of curing.

* Kindly follow the required health and safety precautionary measures. (Refer our Safety Data Sheet for more details)
