Chemsol 75 is high technology non-slip coating that is suitable for commercial and industrial use. Thus, installation by professional epoxy installers is recommended. As with most high performance coating systems, the performance, durability, and overall efficacy of this product depends highly on correct surface preparation as well as on correct product application procedures. If surface preparation and/or application procedures are not followed, the product warranty will be voided. It is critical for proper performance that surface preparation and application procedures are followed.
Atmospheric and General Notes:
- 24 hours prior to installation, store material between 70°F to 75°F ( 21°C to 24°C) for best results
- Substrate temperature should be between 70°F to 90°F ( 21°C to 24°C) for best results
- For best results humidity should be between 50% and 70% R.H.
- Moisture content should not exceed 3% fir concrete substrates and 15% for wood substrates
- Allow for proper joints in substrates and do not overcoat joints
- Do not thin the coating
- After surface preparation and prior to applying primer, use masking tape to tape off any areas that are not to be coated. Note: pay special attention to joints, bolt holes, areas of contact or abrasion, or hinges: tape off any area that does not require coating. Important: prior to material drying, remove tape.
Concrete: Completely remove oil, grease, dirt, and all other surface contaminants using a commercial grade cleaner/degreaser. Flush the area with water to remove any residue and allow to dry completely. Remove any paint, coating, contaminant, laitance, or loose concrete by scarification or blasting, or other mechanical means per NACE No. 6 /SSPC-SP 13 (Surface Preparation of Concrete). Smooth of glazed concrete surfaces should be roughened to improve adhesion. New concrete should be cured for at least 30 days prior to application. All release agents, hardeners, or sealers must also be removed. The concrete surface must be clean, dry, and abraded.
Metal: Completely remove oil, grease, dirt, and all other surface contaminants using a commercial grade cleaner/degreaser. Prepare the metal surface in accordance with NACE No. 2 / SSPC-SP 10 (Near-White Blast Cleaning). We recommend SSPC-SP 10 standard over any type of power tool or mechanical cleaning or abrading. Galvanized (HDG) steal should be prepared in accordance with ASTM D6386. Contact Chemsol Technical Representative prior to preparing for installation on aluminum, galvanized, or specialty metals.
Wood: Completely remove oil, grease, dirt and all other surface contaminants using a commercial grade cleaner/degreaser. Flush the area with water to remove any residues and allow to dry. Sand the surface to remove loose material and to create a surface profile for application. Ensure that surface is clean and free from saw dust and other contaminants. Wood must be dry.
Fiberglass/PVC/FRP/Tile: Completely remove oil, grease, dirt, and all other surface contaminants using a commercial grade cleaner/degreaser. Flush the area with water to remove any residues and allow to dry. Sand/abrade the surface to remove loose material and to create a surface profile for application. Ensure that the surface is clean and free from contaminants.
Other: Contact Chemsol Technical Representative prior to preparation of installation.
Priming: An appropriate substrate-dependent primer is always recommended for best performance. Use Chemsol's Waterborne Epoxy Surface Primer on porous surfaces such as concrete and wood. Use Chemsol's Metal Primer on metal, fiberglass, PVC, and FRP surfaces. Prime metal surfaces immediately following blast preparation to prevent flash rust. For all other substrates, consult with a Chemsol Technical Representative.
Ensure that the primer is pore-free, and provides uniform and complete coverage over entire substrate. Refer to the respective primer Product Data Sheet, MSDS, and application instructions.
Mixing: Do not mix more material than can be applied at one time. Use a mechanical paint mixer, preferable a metal mixing blade attached to a handheld drill. Do not use a paint shaker to mix the product. Open the container and mix thoroughly with the mechanical mixer. Use a moderate motor speed and avoid introducing air into the material. Move the mix blade throughout the entire of the container - up and down, side to side, touching all side walls and bottom of the container, and throughout the middle of the container. Ensure that all aggregate is dispersed uniformly throughout the material (aggregate can settle at the bottom of the container). Mix until a uniform consistency, including aggregate dispersion, is achieved. This should normally take about 3 to 5 minutes. Correct product depends on achieving a thorough mix. A thoroughly and completely mixed product will have equally dispersed aggregate throughout the solution, and a uniform color and consistency throughout the entire container. If the product is not mixed thoroughly, then the product may not cure properly.
Application Methods: The recommended application method is spreading via roller, trowel, brush, or other epoxy paint application tool. Spraying is possible but not recommended. The finished surface texture is highly dependent on the application tool used. Read below for the recommended applications tools and resulting textures. Consult a Chemsol Technical Representative with any product or application-specific questions.
Spread Rate: Apply Chemsol 75 at a wft of 23 mils. Note: the film thickness will be an average value due to the course and uneven surface profile of the coating. Evenly applying Chemsol 75 at a rate of approximately 70 ft²/gal wft is a general rule of thumb to achieve the overall recommended thickness. This coverage is an estimate and will vary under different circumstances. Ensure an even spread rate and avoid pooling and thick buildup.
Maximum Aggressive Texture Finish: Use a smooth phenolic roller cover will result in an aggressive "peaks and valleys" rough surface and will yield the maximum texture (surface profile). Pour a strip of non-slip coating on the substrate. Use a moderate to heavy amount of downward pressure and roll the coating in one direction. During application, ensure that the roller is rolling and not simply "pushing" the non-slip coating. Downward pressure should be applied to heavy enough to feel the aggregate under the roller as the roller is rolling and spreading the coating. Do not over-work the coating; one or two passes should be sufficient. Note: a straight epoxy floor squeegee (rubber or neoprene) can initially be used to spread the non-slip coating to the desired area once it is poured onto the substrate. Once the coating is spread with the squeegee, roll per the above procedure with a smooth phenolic roller cover.
Aggressive Texture Finish: Using a short hair (1/4 inch) nap roller cover will result in a moderately aggressive texture finish. The result will be similar to using a smooth phenolic roller cover, but with less overall aggressiveness and less peaks and valleys. Use the same application and rolling techniques as described above for using a smooth phenolic roller cover.
Notched or Troweled Finish: Using a notched rake (1/4 inch or other) or trowel will result in a raked finished with straight, uniformed peaks generated by the application tool. The notched rake or trowel can be used immediately after pouring the coating onto the substrate, or, the notched rake or trowel can be used to rake the surface after an epoxy floor squeegee has been used to spread the coating.
Flat Texture Finish: Using a straight epoxy floor squeegee (rubber or neoprene) or paint brush will result in a flat surface finish (profile) without the peaks and valleys associated with roller or trowel application. Ensure that the coating is spread to the recommended coverage. Use a light downward pressure on the squeegee to smooth down any peaks on the surface of the non-slip coating. Push or pull the squeegee in one direction. Be careful not to "push" of "pull" and redistribute the non-slip coating; rather, the squeegee is ised to flatten the peaks. Note: the surface will always have texture due to the nature of the aggregate package. This application technique, however, yields an overall flat surface profile compared to the other application techniques mentioned above.
