3.2 Color shall be FROM THE MANUFACURER�S STANDARD COLORS as specified by the architects.

3.3 Type and gradation of anti-skid additives used (if any) shall be those recommended by the manufacture of resinous flooring resin.

3.4 Samples. Before installation begins, resinous flooring contractor shall provide 2 samples of each color for approval by the architect.

4.  Acceptance of Substrate

4.1 Before installing any resinous flooring system, the applicator shall inspect the substrate and immediately report to the general contractor, architect, or owner any unsatisfactory conditions.

5. Preparation of Substrate

5.1 Surface preparation shall be done accordance with manufacturer�s specifications. At a minimum the concrete surface which is to receive the resinous flooring system must be dry, clean, and free from contamination. Any loose or corroded segments of existing concrete shall be removed and the area patched with a grouting compound as described and supplied by the manufacturer of the resinous flooring system.

5.1.1 Any cracks in the concrete shall be evaluated by the ENGINEER. In the event that the ENGINEER decides that it is cost effective and necessary, all cracks (if any exist) shall be injected by Epoxy.com Product #303 injection resin (non-moving cracks) or Epoxy.com Product #4 flexible chemical grout (moving cracks), depending on whether the engineer determines the cracks to be moving or non-moving cracks. Upon the approval of the Engineer Epoxy.com  Product #685 Crack Sealer and Healer, may be used to repair the cracks. The cost, and specifications of these repairs (if necessary) will not be part of this section, but shall be handled under section of this specification.
5.1.2 In the event that the ENGINEER decides not to inject the cracks (if any exist), CONTRACTOR shall fill the cracks with an elastic jointing compound compatible with the resinous flooring system used.

5.2 Bond tests as recommended by the manufacturer of the resinous flooring system shall be conducted in order to assess the condition of the prepared substrate. No materials shall be applied without the consent of the resident Engineer.

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 TopCoating: Apply two coats of Epoxy.com� Product #633 Novolac Epoxy Resin Coating at a thickness so as to insure a total thickness of the system of not less than 20/1000 inch dry film thickness. This coating will contain an anti-skid plastic bead.  The size of the anti-skid bead will be called out on the plans.  The anti-skid is available in fine and large.

 

Proper mixing and installation is critical to the optimal success of all product.  See Installation Tips, Techdata, & MSDS for more details on our products.  Be sure to contact us with any questions and/or concerns that you have.
