Installation Guide

Substrate

The surface must be clean, dry and completely dust free. (Dust must be removed using an industrial vacuum cleaner).

Application

The material is applied either by being sprayed, rollered  or brushed on. It is applied until the treated surface can absorb no more; typically two coats.The objective of the application is not to create a coating on top of the surface, but rather maximise the amount of material that can be absorbed into the substrate. When applying more than one coat, the previous coat must not have dried out before the next is applied.

Any treated surface must be protected from rain and direct sunlight for at least 6 hours. The treated surface should be covered during this period to avoid the risk of damage.

Neither the temperature of the substrate, nor temperature of the ambient air, shall be below +5 °C or above +30 °C during application. If the temperature rises above +25ºC the diluent evaporates quicker, and therefore the ability of penetration to the deeper parts of the substrate reduces.

Tools and equipment used during application can be cleaned with water.

Note: Because of the long-lasting effect of Freezteq APD-10’s hydrophobic qualities, consideration must be given if paint is to be applied over it. It is imperative that trials and appropriate testing be carried out under project conditions, so as to ensure there is compatibility and adhesion between the proposed paint and the treated surface.

Note

Standards may vary from region to region. The user should make contact with their local approval body prior to carrying out any work so as to ensure they are fully compliant with any standards that are enforce.
