PART 3 – EXECUTION

3.1 FIELD CONDITIONS

A. Environmental Requirements per manufacturer’s written recommendations, DIVISION 01, and
as follows:
1. Allow surfaces and product to attain a temperature of 36 deg F (2 deg C) and rising before
proceeding with product application.
2. Do not apply unprotected during periods of exposure to high winds.
3. Ensure that frost or frozen surfaces are thawed with no standing water.
4. Very Hot Weather and Direct Sunlight Conditions: Apply a fine mist spray of water on the
surface after application of SCPTM treatment to help alleviate premature chemical reaction
and/or drying from taking place prior to achieving maximum penetration.

3.2 EXAMINATION, PREPARATION, AND APPLICATION

A. Examination, preparation, and application per SCP’sTM written instructions, industry guidelines,
DIVISION 01, and as follows:

1. Acceptance of Conditions: Carefully examine installation areas with Installer/Applicator
present for compliance with requirements affecting Work performance.
a. Verify that surfaces, substrates, tolerances, levelness, plumbness, temperature,
humidity, cleanliness, and other applicable conditions are as required by product
manufacturers, and are ready to receive Work.
b. Test substrates as required by SCPTM to verify proper conditions.

NOTE: Penetrating colloidal technology is dependent upon water penetration/absorption into the
concrete. If water does not penetrate the concrete, then treatment will also not penetrate.

c. Proceed with installation only after unsatisfactory conditions have been corrected.

2. Provide or prepare substrates to ensure proper application of SCPTM treatment.

a. Protect in-place assets from overspray.
b. NEW CONCRETE: As soon after concrete placement, floating, and/or trowelling so that
it is hard enough for foot traffic or other surface loading without causing damage to the
surface.
1). Concrete mixes shall not use internal curing compounds or other membrane
forming chemical additives, such as crystalline silicate sealers (i.e. – sodium,
potassium, lithium, etc. silicate sealers) that can inhibit penetration of colloidal
concrete treatment.
2). Remove standing water.
3). Do not hard trowel or over-float the surface.
c. EXISTING CONCRETE & CONCRETE REMEDIATION: Physically remove curing
membranes, laitance, plaster, oil, adhesive residue, crystalline silicate hardeners, or
other contaminants from the substrate surface (i.e. – sand or shot blast, high-pressure
wash, etc.) then vacuum and/or pressure wash surface clean, removing all standing
water prior to application.

RED NOTE: Please refer to the blast media manufacturer for proper shot media selection.

3. SCPTM Application to NEW CONCRETE:

a. Apply SCPTM treatment as soon as the concrete is hard enough for foot traffic or other
surface loading without damage to the surface. Use a low to medium pressure air less
sprayer [i.e. – ≤ 1,500 psi (10 MPa)] set to a pressure that will not damage the surface[i.e. – approximately 300 to 600 psi (2.1 to 4.1 MPa)]. Apply at a rate of approximately
140-180 ft2 per gallon.
b. If necessary, spray a second application of SCPTM for porous concrete at a rate of
approximately 140-180 ft2 per gallon.
c. After 24 to 48 hours, apply leveling cements, acrylic primers, applicable Spray-LockTM
adhesive, and/or the final surface finish materials according to the respective
manufacturer recommendations.
4. SCPTM Application to EXISTING CONCRETE and for CONCRETE REMEDIATION:
a. Apply SCPTM using a low to medium pressure air less sprayer [i.e. – ≤ 1,500 psi (10
MPa)] onto existing concrete as soon as the application surface has been properly
prepared. Apply at a rate of approximately 70-180 ft2 per gallon depending on the
product and application.
b. If necessary, spray a second application of SCPTM for porous concrete at a rate of
approximately 140-180 ft2 per gallon.
c. After a minimum of 24 hrs, lightly sand & vacuum, or pressure wash, to remove any left
over contaminants and excess materials.
d. After 24 to 48 hours, apply leveling cements, acrylic primers, applicable Spray-LockTM
adhesive, and/or the final surface finish materials according to the respective
manufacturer published recommendations.
