PART 3 – EXECUTION
 
 
3.01         PREPARATION
 
A.          Protection
 
1.      The Applicator shall be responsible for the protection of equipment and adjacent areas from contamination.
 
 
            B.      Surface Preparation
 
 
                     1.      Cast-in-Place Concrete
 
 
                              a.        New concrete shall have cured a minimum of 28 days in accordance with ACI-308.  No concrete curing agents shall be allowed on the new work. Surface shall be finished as trowel with light broom. Water vapor emission tests (anhydrous calcium chloride test ASTM F 1869-98) must be conducted by other parties and accepted by applicator prior to accepting the surface for preparation and application of system. Results not higher than 3 lbs/1,000 sf/24hrs.
 
 
                              b.       New and existing concrete surfaces shall be free of oil, grease, curing compounds, loose particles and moss.
 
 
                              c.        Removal of contaminants and surface preparation shall be performed by means approved by the individual certified applicator in conjunction with the Engineer.
 
 
                              d.       The substrate shall be sounded and all spalls repaired by general contractor prior to placement of the primer coat.  Spalls shall be repaired with methyl methacrylate based rapid cure concrete patch materials per the Engineer’s and Manufacturer's recommendations.
 
 
                              e.        There shall be no visible moisture present on the surface at the time of application of the system.  Compressed oil-free air and/or a light passing of a propane torch and/or electric heat gun may be used to dry the substrate.
 
 
                     2.      Related Materials
 
                              a.        The Manufacturer’s individual certified applicator shall be consulted to determine feasibility of application and recommended preparation.
 
           
            C.     Inspection
 
                     1.      Prior to the priming of the surface, the Engineer and the individual certified applicator shall inspect and approve the prepared substrate.
 
                     2.      Random tests for adequate bond strength may be conducted by the applicator at his discretion on the substrate in accordance with the Manufacturer's recommendations, at a minimum frequency of three (3) tests per 5000 ft².  Smaller areas shall receive a minimum of three (3) tests. The purpose of these tests is to determine the depth of penetration of the primer into the concrete substrate. This is not a moisture test. The purpose of this test is to verify that the permeability of the porosity of the concrete substrate has been opened by the surface preparation activity. Shot blasting tends to block the permeability by impinging laitance into the porosity.
 
                     3.      Based on the test results, the individual certified application and the Engineer may request additional substrate preparation before proceeding with the installation of the system.
 
                     4.      Cracks and joints shall be treated in accordance with the system Manufacturer's recommendations as approved or directed by the Engineer.
 
 
 
3.02     APPLICATION
 
            A.     General
 
                     1.      For new cast in place concrete the system may be applied in six distinct steps as listed below: (delete step c. if pigment hide is not necessary)
 
                              a.        Substrate preparation
                              b.       Priming
                              c.        First bond coat without quartz broadcast(if required for pigment hide).
                              d.       Second bond coat application with quartz broadcast
                              e.        First sealer application, wet solve after fully cured if required
                              f.        Second sealer application
 
                     2.      Concrete surfaces on grade shall have been constructed with a vapor barrier to protect against the effects of water vapor transmission and possible delamination of the system. Delaminations caused by water vapor emissions or transmission are not warrantable acts.
 
                     3.      Immediately prior to the application of any component of the system, the surface shall be dry and any remaining dust or loose particles shall be removed using a vacuum or clean, dry, oil-free compressed air. Metal bead shot blasting is not permitted on new or old exposed concrete surfaces. If existing coating is to be removed it should be removed by scarifying or grinding.
 
                     4.      The handling, mixing and addition of components shall be performed in a safe manner to achieve the desired results in accordance with the Manufacturer's recommendations as approved or directed by the individual certified applicator in coordination with the Engineer.
 
                     5.      The system shall follow the contour of the substrate unless pitching or other leveling work has been specified by the Engineer.
 
                     6.      A neat finish with well defined boundaries and straight edges shall be provided by the Applicator.
 
 
            B.      Priming
 
                     1.      All areas to receive the system shall be primed with the Manufacturer's approved P2MMA low viscosity (<90cps) primer to seal and penetrate the substrate providing a strong bond for the coating to the substrate.
 
                     2.      Porous concrete may require application of the primer be monitored to insure there are no areas in which the primer was fully absorbed without leaving a shiny film of primer on the surface.
 
            C.     Binder Coats
 
                    1.      The binder coat shall consist of one pigmented binder coat installed on the primed, prepared areas where indicated for color hide on light colors, if necessary..
 
                     2.      Colored quartz shall be broadcast to refusal in the final binder coat.
 
 
            D.          Sealer Coats
 
                     1.      The sealer coats shall consist of two coats installed on the cured binder coat. The surface, after sealer coats, should be greater than a .6 SCOF, wet surface.
 
                     2.      No traffic or equipment shall be permitted on the material during the curing period.  Under no circumstances shall the unsealed coating be opened to service.
 
 
3.03     FIELD QUALITY CONTROL
 
 
            A.     Tests, Inspection
 
 
                     1.      The following tests shall be conducted by the Applicator and recorded on a form to be submitted to the Engineer:
 
                              a.        Temperatures: Air and substrate temperatures and, if applicable, dew point.  Dew point shall be calculated from temperature and humidity using standard tables.
 
                              b.       Adhesion Tests: Adhesion tests of the cured system to the substrate may be checked as per Clause 3.01 C.
  
 
3.04     FINAL REVIEW
 
            A.     The Engineer and the Applicator shall jointly review the area(s) in which the completed system has been installed.  Any irregularities or other items that do not meet the requirements of the Engineer or these specifications shall be addressed at this time.
