1. FEATURES & BENEFITS

• Flowable material; easy to apply
• Ready-to-use; just add water
• Use to rejuvenate old concrete surfaces
• Alternative to expensive concrete replacement
• Polymer modified for superior bonding strength

2. USES

For resurfacing concrete walks, slabs, driveways and patios. Can be applied in a flowable consistency using a squeegee, or in a stiffer consistency using a trowel.

3. PROCEDURES

READ ALL DIRECTIONS BEFORE STARTING WORK.
ATTENTION: WEAR GLOVES, SAFETY GLASSES and PROTECTIVE CLOTHING!

PROCEDURES
Use only when the product, air and surface temperature are above 10°C (50°F) and remain that for a minimum of 24 hours.

Surface Preparation: The substrate must be sound, clean, hard and free of dust, dirt, grease, oil, paint, sealers, curing compounds and other materials that will interfere with the bonding of the new material. Pressure washing is recommended with a 17 MPa (2500 psi) pressure washer. Prior to application, fill any cracks and pitted or deteriorated areas with SAKRETE Flo-Coat mixed to a trowelable consistency: 8 parts powder to 1 part water by volume. Allow any repairs to set before resurfacing begins.

NOTE: DO NOT USE WITH A BONDING AGENT.

Mixing: One 18.1 KG (40 lb) bag requires approximately 3.3 L (3.5 qts) of clean water. First, add most of the water to a 20 L (5 US gallon) bucket. Then, pour the powder into the bucket and mix with a high-torque, variable-speed drill using a paddle mixer attachment, running at low rpm to avoid splattering. Mix for approximately 2 minutes, adding remainder of the water as needed. Let the material sit for 1 minute, then finish mixing for another minute to a lump-free, pourable consistency. Excess water reduces strength, durability, bonding and can cause cracking. Use cold water to slow the set in hot weather.

Placing: Dampen the surface with water. Pour the mixed material onto the surface and spread it with a long-handled squeegee. If squeegee marks are evident, drag a stiff bristle broom over the material immediately after using the squeegee. If done when the SAKRETE Flo-Coat is still fluid this will evenly blend the material together. Do not allow the material to spill into expansion joints and control joints, as these should be preserved with tape or other means.

Finishing: For a textured finish, use a broom in complete strokes over the surface after SAKRETE Flo-Coat stiffens but before final set. To build up the application thickness, use additional thin layers after each layer cures for 24 hours.

4. CURING

Curing means maintaining proper moisture and temperature. Allow newly placed material to set until surface is hard to the touch. Under most conditions SAKRETE Flo-Coat requires no special curing. When temperatures are above 32°C (90°F) spray with a fi ne mist for 24 hours. Protect from freezing for a minimum of 24 hours. Protect surface from rain for 8 hours.

5. TECHNICAL DATA

7. YIELD

18.1 KG (40 lb) yields approximately:

  • 6.7 m² at 2 mm depth (72 ft² at 1/16”), or
  • 1.7 m² at 6 mm depth (18 ft² at 1/4”)

8. STORAGE & SHELF LIFE

Aspiration Hazard
Can cause lung damage if aspirated based on human experience.

STOT (Specific Target Organ Toxicity) – Repeated Exposure
Causes irritation of the respiratory system. Respiratory tract injury has been observed. Respirable crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and National Toxicology Program (NTP) as a lung carcinogen. Prolonged exposure to respirable crystalline silica has been known to cause silicosis, a lung disease, which may be disabling. While there may be a factor of individual susceptibility to a given exposure to respirable silica dust, the risk of contracting silicosis and the severity of the disease is clearly related to the amount of dust exposure and the length of time (usually years) of exposure.

Respiratory and/or Skin Sensitization
May cause an allergic reaction (skin sensitization) based on information for closely related chemicals.
