Application Existing Buildings or New Buildings

Preparation Existing Buildings:

Apply 1 coat of Chemocide and completely waterblast total area using minimum of 3000 PSI unit, ensuring all mould, grease, grime, loose or flaky paint is compleely removed.  Allow to dry.  Repair any defects in concrete using Shieldpatch Acrylic Modified Cement mixed with Resin 50.

Preparation New Buildings:

Ensure building is clean and dust free. Repair any defects in concrete using Epoxyflex or Shieldpatch Acrylic Modified Cement mixed with Resin 50.  Allow to dry.  Do not use ordinary sand and cement, as loss of adhesion may occur.

Sealing:

Apply 1 coat of Strongwall Sealer using roller or spray to ensure proper adhesion to concrete and exxisting paint systems.

Basecolour:

Apply 1 coat of Basecolour using roller, airless spray, or pressure pot spray system at 5m2 er litre coverage.  On concrete allow 2 coats at 5m2 per litre coverage on blockwork.

Multifleck Application:

Apply 1 coat of Multifleck at 3m2 per litre coverage to achieve a minimum film build of 333 microns W.F.B.

Even though we use the same base colour, it is very important to completely overlap and interknit each spray pass of Multifleck at 50% completely obliterating the basecolour.  It is important that basecolour does not grin through.

Allow minimum of 8 -16 hours to dy before rain and overglazing.

Glaze Coat:

Apply 2 even coats of Crystal Glaze at 6m2 per litre coverage (allow to dry before heavy rainfall) for additional protection and improved performance especially in harsh weather environments.

Multifleck Application:

Apply Multifleck overlapping each spray pass by 50% holding spray gun 200-300 mm from surface and directly at surface (not angling, otherwise damage will result)

Continue this technique ensuring all Basecolour is completely obliterated (Basecolour or Multiseal should not grin through).

Continue fnishing with this technique completing the area as you go, this system requires only 1 coat.

Spray all angles, edges, and intricate tricky areas first, only then proceed to spray large flat areas maintaining Spray Gun directly at approximately 10-15 inches (200-300 mm) away from substrate for best results.

Glaze Coat:

Apply 2 even coats of Crystal Glaze at 6m2 per litre coverage (allow to dry before heavy rainfall) for additional protection and improved performance especially in harsh weather environments.  Multifleck Will Not spray through Suction Cup Guns or Airless Spray Pumps as too higher pressures will shatter the flecks
