AD-TEX T5 Spray-On

AD-TEX T5 Spray-on Paving

DESCRIPTION

A high strength pre-blended coloured concrete surfacing formula combining graded silica sands, Portland cement and other chemically reactive agents.

PURPOSE

To provide a concrete or masonry surface (vertical or horizontal) with a coloured decorative finish.

COVERAGE

2 coats, depending on finish. One coat gives 8-10sq metres per 20kg bag.

WARNING:
DO NOT APPLY IN WET WEATHER OR WHEN TEMPERATURE IS BELOW 10 C OR ABOVE 30 C.

SURFACE PREPARATION

A clean, sound surface is required. Evaluate the condition of the concrete to be resurfaced. Concrete in a poor state of repair, e.g. with cracking or spalling, should be repaired, or replaced well in advance of coating. Oil, grease stains, paint or other types of surface contaminants must be removed before installation. Acid washing, Degreasing, Sand blasting, Scabbling and Surface grinding are some of the methods that can be used to prepare the concrete surface.

Wherever possible, finish your preparation by washing and cleaning down the concrete surface using a high pressure water blaster minimum 2000psi.

If cracks are to be repaired, we recommend that you use a two pack epoxy repair system. Small irregularities in the surface can be filled and levelled using a quantity of base coat mix. For larger voids use AD-TEX "Patch & Repair" non shrink grout. All surrounding areas should be masked off to protect them from overspray.

PRIMING THE SURFACE

Once you have completed the surface preparation, you must apply a coat of primer to the area that is to be recoated. PRIMER ONE part AD-TEX T5 Modifier (liquid) and TWO and a HALF parts fresh clean water.

Mix thoroughly and apply a good even coat using a roller, soft-bristled broom or sprayer. Do not let the primer pool - a good even coat is best. Allow primer to dry before the next stage of preparation.

MIXING PARTS A & PART B

Stir the Modifier. Into a clean 20ltr bucket, pour 2.5 litres of AD-TEX T5 Cement Modifier and a further 2.5 litres of fresh clean water. Blend together, then slowly add one 20kg bag of AD-TEX T5 Powder. Mix continuously as you blend the two ingredients, using an electric drill mixer on medium speed for at least 3 minutes or until Parts A & B are thoroughly blended. Depending on conditions, if a thinner mix is required, blend in a quantity of AD-FLOW (as little as 50mls will decrease the viscosity quite considerably). DO NOT OVERDOSE WITH WATER as this will reduce product strength. Allow the mix to sit for 2 minutes, check, if all is well, lightly remix and application can commence (pour via a sieve into hopper). Water can be reduced down to 2.0 litres per bag during colder conditions (DO NOT vary Modifier T5 Part B content).

DESIGN & PATTERNS

Use an AD-TEX  Stencil Pattern  from our range (shinny side up - only for Batch Numbers after 160902) or set out a free-hand design with AD-TEX adhesive tape to create the authentic look of brick, stone, tile and much more. Secure raised stencil with Blu-tack before coating.

APPLICATION by TROWEL or SQUEEGEE

(ONLY FOR COLOUR, NOT STENCIL PATTERN)
Pour the mix onto the concrete surface and spread out evenly (approx. 3 mm thick) keeping a wet edge as you go.

APPLICATION - HOPPER SPRAY GUN

Set up spray gear to achieve the required texture. Spray in a circular pattern and build your texture in coats (2 at least). A good solid coat of at least 3mm must be provided. If you are using a Stencil Pattern for this process, watch for overspray, particularly under the pattern.

TOP COAT HIGHLIGHT COLOURS

Highlighting your top coat with secondary colours can transform your single colour installation into a work of art. These colours can be added in the form of flecks and speckles, blushes, misting and so on.

THE HIGHLIGHT PROCESS

Clean your hopper gun. Select the required highlight colour/s mix as per instructions. Keeping the mix slightly fluid, select one of the smaller nozzle settings and test spray off the job.
Be conservative at first, slowly work up to required shade.
Do not add highlight colours carelessly; aim for that authentic look.

REMOVAL OF STENCIL and TAPES

Should be carried out after the coating has dried sufficiently. Test for this by carefully placing your hand flat on the concrete surface palm down. If you can feel any dampness or see any traces of moisture on your hand, it′s too early for removal. Drying time will depend on weather conditions at the time.

Early removal might result in damage to the pattern and produce chipped edges. Late removal might result in stencil or tape being difficult to remove. After removal use a leaf blower to dust off the slab and remove any waste colour.

SEALING THE AD-TEX SURFACE

We strongly recommend the application of 2 full coats of AD-TEX Sealer, which is UV inhibited to protect and enhance your new coloured AD-TEX surface. Apply only after the coatings are dry and best results are obtained by using a wool roller.

PACKING & STORAGE

Shelf life approx. 6 months if stored in dry conditions above 7 C.

PRECAUTIONS:

AD-TEX T5 Colour Hardener is non toxic, but as with products containing Portland Cement, it has an alkaline nature that can be irritating to skin and eyes. Wear dust masks, eye protection and gloves when handling. If irritation persists seek medical advice. Do not use below 10 C.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
