Equipment & Tools

Brush, Roller or Spray

Equipment Type

Good quality Brush and Roller Sleeve.

Spray application will depend on the type of finish required.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be free from Rust, Oil, Grease, and all other surface contamination. New concrete must have a pH level less than 10 and had at least 28 days to cure. New and old Concrete should be Acid Etched using 1 Part Hydrochloric Acid or Nu EcoSafe Concrete Etch to 10 Parts Water. High Pressure Water Blast area (> 2000Psi) and allow to completely dry. Painted concrete in poor condition should be stripped using our Nu Ecosafe range of paint strippers and acid etched before application.

Paint Mixture

Mixing Ratio

3 Parts A to 1 Part B.

After drill mixing leave to stand for 10 minutes before using to allow full activation. Stirring with a stick by hand is inadequate.

Pot Life

Safety Precautions

  • Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and a recommended respirator for spray application.
  • Make sure there is good air flow and ventilation before applying this coating.

Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for additional safety and user information.

Slip Hazard

Sealing of smooth and sloping concrete surfaces will reduce pedestrian and vehicle safety. For greater slip reduction a Coarse or Fine 2PK Anti Slip can be sprinkled on the wet freshly applied surface of the first coat and encapsulated with a subsequent coat of EPiC PolyCryl. Testing is recommended before proceeding to ensure that a potential slip hazard is avoided. Refer to your Nutech specialist for alternative recommendations on steep, smooth surfaces.
