Advantages

It provides waterproofing; protects from corrosion; is resistant to friction, strokes, and certain chemicals. Because it does not contain any solvent, it can be safely applied indoors. It has strong adherence to surfaces it is applied. It is very durable.

Surface Preparation

The surface to be treated must be clean, durable, free from grease, and definitely dry. POLIXA 2 results in effervescence when applied to wet surfaces.

Application

The whole amount of hardener contained in the small pail is mixed with the whole amount of main component contained in the big pail to a homogenous consistency. The mixture must be consumed within 30 - 45 minutes; later it cannot be applied due to jelling. It must be applied at least in two coats, and each coat must be applied 6 hours later than the preceding coat. If this interval exceeds 24 hours, the first coat must be sandpapered prior to the application of the second coat. After the application the surface must be protected from water for at least 6 - 8 hours. It can be applied by a brush, or roller.

Cleaning Of The Tools

The equipment can be cleaned by using cellulosic thinner immediately after application.

Consumption

1,20 -1,50 kg/m2 in two coats.
