6. Installation:

6.1 Resinous flooring system shall be installed at a minimum depth of 20 mils thick DFT in strict accordance with the manufacturer's installation instructions, by an applicator trained and approved by the manufacturer.

6.2 Primer: Apply a coat of Epoxy.com  Product #899 or other primer recommended by the manufacturer for the specific application at a rate recommended by the manufacturer. Any cracks in the concrete that exist at this time shall be evaluated by the ENGINEER.

6.3 Base Cove: A base cove of 4 inches high will be applied to all wall surfaces where noted in this section or on the drawings. The base cove (if any required) shall be installed so as to have a 1/2 inch radius at the bottom of it.

6.4 Base-coat: Apply two coats of Epoxy.com™ Product #2 resin at a thickness so as to insure a total thickness of the system of not less than 20/1000 inch dry film thickness.
