Install a minimum 4’ by 4’ test area site mock up for approval of acceptable color, texture, finish, adhesion, and any other critical requirement acceptable to the owner prior to proceeding with the installation.
Verify current versions of product technical data sheets (PTDS), material safety data sheets (MSDS), and installation guidelines (IG) at www.miracote.com.
Protect materials from excessive heat and cold and regularly check wet film thickness with mil gauge and monitor consumption to ensure correct application thicknesses and rate are obtained.
OVERVIEW OF INSTALLATION
Apply two coats by brush, roller, conventional or airless spray. Strain material before spray application. Allow for losses due to application methods, conditions and surface irregularities. Dries to touch in approximately 20 minutes. Allow 4 hours dry time between coats.
Caution: Miracote Colorbond XL slip resistance characteristics can be reduced when used in conjunction with other Miracote sealers.
Apply only to clean, relatively dry surfaces.
SLIP RESISTANCE and CLEANABILITY
In general, the more aggressive the finished surface the greater the coefficient of friction and corresponding slip resistance, the more difficult to clean. The smoother the finished texture the easier the surface is to clean, but there is a loss of skid resistant properties.
ASTM D1308 Standard Test Method for Effect of Household Chemicals on Clear and Pigmented Organic Finishes.
Crossfield Products Corp. Proprietary Testing.
Note: Chemical resistance is a functional test, usually limited to changes in weight or thickness measured in loss or gain and does not evaluate subject aesthetic issues. To determine aesthetic issues, Crossfield recommends testing the products or system in accordance with intended end use.
Cleaning and disinfecting compounds and cleaning techniques can affect the color, gloss, texture and performance of the system. As a precautionary step, Crossfield recommends that the end-user test their cleaning and disinfecting compounds on a sample or on a small, out of the way finished area, utilizing the intended cleaning technique prior to cleaning the entire surface area. If no deleterious effects are observed, the procedure can be continued. If the cleaning and disinfecting compounds or cleaning techniques damage the system, modification of the cleaning material or techniques will be required.
