Technical Application Data
Primer 5000 may be applied within temperature ranges from 50°F to 100°F. This primer has a max working time window of 24 hours. Re-coat will be necessary if the 24 hr drying window is exceeded. Proper application time is when the primer begins to become tacky to the touch which is dependent on humidity. A catalyst may be added to decrease dry time if working in humid conditions. Levels of 0.1 to 1% can reduce the drying time to 10 min if necessary. Topcoats are applied immediately to tacky surface. If primer becomes totally dry, then re-coat. Application of primer may be airless sprayer, brush or roller. Recommended wet film thickness is 5-10 mils. Material coverage per mixed gal 250 sq.ft/ gal. depending on roughness of surface and application method. Always wear protected respiratory and eye protection when using.

Substrate Surface Preparation
As always, preparation of substrate surface prior to the application of any SuperSkinSystem material as it is extremely important to achieve proper bonding of the total system.
Concrete must be fully cured and should be cleaned with a high pressure steam cleaner combined with an alkaline detergent wash solution or secured with a sandblasting or shot-blasting procedure depending on the severity of the concrete surface condition. After surface cleaning a thorough rinsing procedure must be completed to remove residual cleaning agents. Power blow drying then natural evaporative air drying is usually a sound procedure to eliminate moisture. For patching, use our calcium carbonate filled fast-set Acrylic Modified Epoxy applied by trowel. For expansion joints, use our Joist Seal applied by hand cartridge dispensing gun. Metals must be prepared and standardly prepped to be clean and free of contaminants.
