Euclid Quick Stitch Characteristics
- Can be applied at a range of thicknesses with the use of clean, oven-dried silica
- Very fast cure time
- 33 colors available through the use of color packs
- Static mixers available with needle tips – for neatly injecting very narrow cracks
- Low viscosity – deep penetration into cracks
- Wide application temperature range: 0 to 110 °F (-18 to 43 °C)
- Low VOC and no solvent odor
- Cracked concrete surfaces, interior and exterior
- Spalled floor joints
- Repair of pop-outs and delaminations on floors
Quick stitch is initially dark gray/ black upon mixing but turns light gray after curing. When used with sand, the final color of the repair will depend on the type, color, and gradation of the sand. Manufactured or colored quartz can be blended on the jobsite to match the color of the floor. Neat Quick Stitch is not UV stable and will discolor when exposed to sunlight or interior UV light. Two gal (7.6 L) units can be pigmented through the use of Euclid Universal Color Packs, which are available in 33 standard colors.
Directions For Use
All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants, and laitance must be removed to assure a good bond to the concrete. For repair of spalled concrete or pop-outs, a stiff wire brush or twisted wire wheel on a grinder can be used to remove all loose or unsound concrete. Cracks should be similarly cleaned with a diamond blade saw, wire brush or wire wheel. After preparing area, remove all dust and debris with an industrial vacuum and oil-free compressed air. All surfaces must be clean and dry before installation of Quick Stitch.
Condition Euclid Quick Stitch to room temperature, 60 to 80 ºF (16 to 27 ºC) before using. Any sand used with the product must be dry and kept at room temperature. Warmer material and/or application on hot concrete or in a warm environment will accelerate curing of Euclid Quick Stitch. Cold material, cold concrete, or application in a cold environment will delay curing. Heat cold concrete to remove any visible frost before application of Quick Stitch.
Cartridges of Euclid Quick Stitch must be shaken well before using. After shaking, let cartridge stand for one minute to allow any entrapped air to disperse. Insert cartridge into a dual component, 300 ml x 300ml manual dispenser with a 1:1 mix ratio. Open the cartridge by first removing the clear retaining nut. After removing the retaining nut, remove the red plug. Save the retaining nut and plug; they can be re-inserted to save a partially used cartridge. Hold cartridge at a slightly upward angle and slowly dispense a small amount of material into a disposable container until both materials flow evenly from cartridge. Continue to hold cartridge & gun at an upward angle and install flow control and mixing nozzle onto cartridge. Next, point mixing nozzle straight up and slowly begin gunning material through the mixing nozzle until it reaches the tip. Point upwards at a 45° angle and dispense one stroke into a disposable container.
Crack/Spall Repair, Cartridges:
Gun Euclid Quick Stitch directly into cracks, allowing adhesive to penetrate into the crack and top-off as needed. Kiln-dried medium grade (30 mesh) silica sand or dry floor grindings can be sprinkled on top of the wet Quick Stitch to add texture and closely match the appearance of the surrounding concrete. Alternately, larger cracks can be filled with dry, medium grade silica sand then saturated with Quick Stitch. Keep Euclid Quick Stitch flowing to prevent material from hardening in the nozzle. Mixed Quick Stitch will be tack-free in 10 minutes at 75 °F (24 °C). Excess material may be removed immediately or within 20 to 30 minutes after installation by scraping/shaving with a sharp blade. If necessary, cured Qwikstitch can be ground smooth with a brick rub or hand grinder approximately one hour after application.
- Wet substrates or wet sand can cause foaming of the Euclid Quick Stitch and result in a low strength, less durable repair.
- When used without sand, Euclid Quick Stitch will discolor when exposed to UV light.
- In all cases, consult the Safety Data Sheet and Technical Data Sheet before use.
