Unishield SL epoxy floor topping is supplied in a two part system, comprising of a UNI - Primer and Unishield SL Topping.
UNI - Primer - Add the UNI - Primer hardener unit to the contents of the UNI - Primer base container and mix thoroughly. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before application onto prepared concrete.
Topping - The pigmented base must be thoroughly stirred and agitated to disperse sedimentation and achieve consistency of colour. Using a suitable mechanical mixer add the Unishield SL base and Unishield SL hardener units together, mix thoroughly for 2 min. and then slowly add the Unishield SL powder. Mix thoroughly for a further 3 - 5 min. and then allow standing for 5 min. before use.
Due to the expertise required in applying this product only approved applicators are used.
UNI - Primer - Using either a suitable brush or roller or airless spray apply the primer to achieve an even coating of surface area and allow curing overnight.
Unishield SL Topping - Apply the well mixed floor topping to the primer layer using a serrated trowel, followed by multiple wet rolling with a spiked roller to release any entrapped air. Care must be taken not to roll onto partially set areas. The substrate and material temperature should be at least 15°C during application
