SITE PREPARATION

  • All substrate must be structurally sound, solid, rough, clean and free of any substance that can reduce adhesion as grease, oil or dust. Portland concrete base must have a minimum of 3 days;
  • Break the substrate until to achieve a concrete with good resistance, minimum concrete depth of 0,8 in, leaving the vertical edges;
  • All types of substrate must be washed with water. Remove excess water before the application

 

PRODUCT PREPARATION

  • Mix each 55,12 lb bag of RAPFLEX PLUS with the second component,1 gallon of RAPFLEX PLUS additive, specially developed to increase adhesion to substrates.
  • Mixing time: 4 - 5 minutes
  • In manual mixing not use more than one bag and mix with energy;
  • Working time of mix: 25 minutes at 68° F or 15 minutes at 83° F;
  • For thicknesses above 1,5 in mix each bag of RAPFLEX PLUS with 16 lb of stone, which must be washed prior to mixing to remove all dust. The most practical way is to use the RAPFLEX 10. It is a micro concrete ready for use with the same technical characteristic.
