Application Instructions

SURFACE PREPARATION

Surface must be clean, sound and free from oil, grease, curing compound, or any contamination. Any contaminants should be removed by light grit blasting. Water jet is then used as the end step of substrate cleaning.

Avoid the use of acidic or alkaline chemical detergents and cationic surfactants. If detergents are used for cleaning, it is necessary to rinse well the cleaned surface by water in order to remove any detergent residue.

APPLICATION

It is recommended to apply two consecutive coats of Repelicone K at the stated rate of application with a maximum recoat time of 10 minutes, or one flood coat. Impregnation can be carried out using airless spray machine, brush, or roller.

Repelicone K should not be applied on glass, wood, plastic, aluminum and metals. Rinse immediately with water in case of accidental exposure.

Repelicone K should not be applied when rain is forecasted within 24 hours. Wait at least 24 hours after rain or water cleaning.

Be sure that impregnated surfaces by Repelicone K are not exposed to water and rain for at least 8 hours after application. Allow the treated surface to dry for at least 24 hours to develop maximum water repellency.

DO NOT USE DETERGENTS for cleaning impregnated surfaces by Repelicone K, washing occurs only by water.

CLEANING

Tools and equipment can be cleaned with water when wet.

CURING

The water repellent properties fully develop in approximately 24 hours @ 25°C.

PRECAUTION

Care should be taken during use and storage to avoid contact with skin, eyes and mouth. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Should accidental skin contact occur, remove immediately with plenty of clean water. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately - do not induce vomiting.
