Application Equipment
Protective clothing Roller assembly (18”) Jiffy® mixer blade Medium (3/8”) nap roller Slow speed drill (500 rpm or less) Spiked shoes 18-24” Flat rubber squeegee
Due to the limited pot life of the material, all application equipment, etc. should be ready forimmediate use. (Clean roller with tape to remove any residual lint.)
Recoat
RIO-COAT EPT Topcoat may be used to coat over an existing epoxy in sound condition. Detergent scrub and rinse with clean water toremove surface dirt, grease, oil and contaminants. Floor must be sanded thoroughly with 80 grit paper/60 grit screen prior to recoating. We recommend thorough sanding with a swing-type buffer so that multiple scratch marks cause an obvious gloss loss on all areas (depressions will remain shiny), and the floor is uniformly dulled. The ability to see individual scratch marks is an indication that sanding is not adequate. Scrub with detergent and rinse with clean water before coating.
Bare Concrete Application
RIO-COAT EPT TOPCOAT MUST BE APPLIED OVER A RIO HIGH SOLIDS EPOXY PRIMER. RIO-COAT EPT Topcoat is too thick to effectively wet out and penetrate concrete pores. (See appropriate epoxy product bulletin for application instructions.)
Application - Seal Coat
Seal with one coat of RIO-COAT EPT Topcoat. It can also be used to create texture over a RIO epoxy or as part of a RIO wall system. COVERAGE RATE: 5-8 mils (0.13-0.20 mm), 200-320 sq. ft. per one gallon (18.6-29.7 m2 per 3.78 litres). COLORS: Premix RIO Colorant before adding to RIO-COAT EPT Topcoat to ensure uniform color. Add colorant to RIO-COAT EPT
Topcoat Part A and mix using a Jiffy® mixer blade and slow speed drill. ADD RIO-COAT EPT TOPCOAT Part B TO RIO-COAT EPT TOPCOAT PART A and mix well using a Jiffy® mixer blade and
slow speed drill. MIX FOR 2-3 MINUTES using a Jiffy® mixer blade. POTLIFE: Mix only enough material which can be applied within 20 minutes.
POUR THE MIXTURE IN A BEAD over the cured mortar or epoxy. WITH A SQUEEGEE, SPREAD THE RIO-COAT EPT TOPCOAT. Sealing without backrolling will minimize texture. BACKROLL WITH A 3/8” NAP ROLLER for a uniform finish. The use of spiked epoxy shoes will allow freedom of movement on the wet floor.
NOTE: If backrolling, to ensure a more uniform texture, a separate individual may finish roll by pushing or pulling a roller across the floor in one direction. Unpigmented RIO-COAT EPT Topcoat will dry “milky” if put down at more than 6 mils (0.15 mm).
ALLOW SYSTEM TO CURE 8-10 hours at 75°F (24°C).
