        Preparation:

        • Substrates must be sound and free of dust, oil, laitance, paint and other materials which might affect adhesion.

        Priming:

        All substrates require priming to ensure bonding.

        – Type 1 (Dense or uneven surfaces):

        • 1:1, Technocryl 2001:cement (or sand and cement mix as for topping). Brush slurry into surface. Lay topping while primer remains wet.

        – Type 2 (Sound porous surfaces without movement):

        • 1:1, Technocryl 2001:water. Brush into surface. Allow to dry for four hours and re-apply. Lay topping while primer remains wet.

        Application:

        – General:

        • Lay in accordance with BS 8204, 'Code of practice for polymer modified cementitious wearing surfaces'.
        • Consult supplier for specific application.

        – Materials:

        • Use sands and aggregates in compliance with BS 63 'Specification of single size aggregate for general purposes' and BS 882 'Specification for aggregate from natural sources for concrete'.

        – Granolithic and Terrazzo: 

        • For pale colours use white cement.
        • For pigmented floors use cement mix with Cementone No1 colours 1:10–1:40 by weight.
        • High alumina cement may be used for demanding applications, such as food processing or fertiliser stores.

        – Curing:

        • Do not force dry.

        – Suitability using Ordinary Portland Cement:

        • Light foot traffic: After one day.
        • Light wheeled traffic: After four days.
        • Heavy vehicle traffic: After fourteen days.
