FREEDOMDECK™

FREEDOMTUFF® FREEDOMDECK™ is an integrative group of hand applied coatings utilizing an epoxy primer and multiple two component polyurethanes that provide an elastomeric waterproof coating with a theoretical dry film thickness of 56± mils (1422.4 microns) for vehicular traffic. These coatings are 100% solids, solvent free and odorless, applied vertically or horizontally on concrete forming a continuous seamless membrane. The FreedomDeck is available with a 5-year leak free warranty if preapproved in writing prior to the start of the project by Freedom® Chemical Corp, and with an independent third-party inspection service, hired by owner.

FREEDOMTUFF® FREEDOMDECK™

PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY

Read and understand all the information contained in the Product Information Bulletin’s, Specifications, SDS’s and product labels prior to starting any project. Nothing contained in any of Freedom® Chemical Corporation’s materials relieves the end user of the obligation to read and follow the warnings and instructions for each of Freedom® Chemical Corporation’s products.

PREPARATION

Do not place coating over metal pan decks vented or unvented, split slab membranes, or other locations containing trapped moisture without prior written approval from Freedom® Chemical Corporation.

Concrete should be cured for 28 days (less than 28 days a Moisture Vapor Reducing primer maybe required) prior to product application and have at least 3000 psi compressive and 220 psi tensile strength.

Surface preparation is the essential first stage treatment of a substrate before the application of any coating. The performance of a coating is significantly influenced by its ability to adhere properly to the substrate material. It is generally established that correct surface preparation is the most important factor affecting the total success of surface treatment. Surfaces will be clean, dry, and sound, the presence of even small amounts of surface contaminants, dust, efflorescence, laitance, salts, curing compounds, dirt, oil, form release agents, and other foreign matter can physically impair and prevent coating adhesion to the substrate.

Shot Blast concrete between CSP 3 – 7

Profile steel between 4-6 mils

Grinding is permitted only in areas that are inaccessible to shot blasting equipment.

COVERAGE RATE

Freedom® Chemical Corporation’s coverage rates for all products are approximate and vary based on type of substrate, substrate porosity, roughness and size of broadcast aggregate.

PACKAGING

See individual Product Information Bulletin.

PRIMER

Select appropriate primer from individual Product Information Bulletin’s. FreedomTuff® primer is required on all substrates, except on properly prepared steel (immersion requires primer).

MIXING

See Product Information Bulletin’s.

Do not dilute or mix partial containers of multi-component materials

Do not dilute under any circumstances.

APPLICATION

Throughout the application the sanded surface must be clean and dry.

The substrate may require more than one coat of FreedomTuff® primer. After selection of primer, mix and immediately pour primer onto the substrate at a rate of 100 to 200 square feet per gallon (9.29030m² to 18.5806m² per liter) in enough quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical dry film thickness of 8 mils (203.2 microns) per coat.

Apply coating over primer within eighteen (18) hours, if not coated within the time allotted, contact Freedom® Chemical Corporation.

Allow primer to become tack free prior to application of FreedomTuff® 4300.

For optimum results proceed with application while air and substrate temperatures are between 40º F (4.4° C) and 104° F (40° C) 6º (-14.44º C) above the dew point and rising.

FreedomTuff® 4300 Part-B should be mixed individually prior to combining, add Part-A to Part-B while mixing, using a mechanical mixer at medium speed making sure not to encapsulate any air. Mix until a homogeneous mixture and color is obtained (a minimum of 2 minutes is recommended).

Apply 1¼ gallons (4.731765 liters) per 100 square feet of FreedomTuff® 4300 in enough quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical 20 mils dry (508 microns) film thickness (or more to meet architectural specification). Immediately pour the FreedomTuff® 4300 onto the horizontal surface and spread evenly over the entire surface using notched trowel or squeegee then back roll using a ¼ “mohair roller with a phenolic resin core.

NOTE: Turn radii and ramps require an additional coat of FreedomTuff® 4300 at 1-gallon (3.78541 liters) per 100 square feet or in enough

quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical 16 mils dry (406.4 microns) film thickness.

Apply 1¼ gallons (4.731765 liters) per 100 square feet of FreedomTuff® 4300 in enough quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical 20 mils dry (508 microns) film thickness (or more to meet architectural specification). Immediately pour the FreedomTuff® 4300 onto the horizontal surface and spread evenly over the entire surface using notched trowel or squeegee then back roll using a ¼ “mohair roller with a phenolic resin core.

Prior to its full set, broadcast a washed, dry, rounded, contamination free 20 x 40 nominal sieve size sand (0.0331”/.850 millimeters, .0165”/.425 millimeters) with 6.5 Moh’s minimum hardness into the FreedomTuff® 4300, to refusal.

Excess aggregate must be completely removed.

Recoat window is within twenty-four (24) hours of application of FreedomTuff® 4300, if not recoated within the time allotted, contact Freedom® Chemical Corporation.

Allow Step three to dry prior to application of FreedomTuff® 4000.

Apply 1 gallon (3.7854) of FreedomTuff® 4000 top coat in enough quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical of 16 mils (406.4microns). Immediately pour the FreedomTuff® 4000 onto the horizontal surface and spread evenly over the entire using a flat edge squeegee and then back roll using a ¼” mohair roller with a phenolic resin core.

Proceed with application while air and substrate temperatures are between 40° F (4.4º C) and 104° F (40º C).

DRY FILM THICKNESS

Over occupied space Freedom® Chemical Corporation’s FreedomTuff® Freedomdeck™ is a theoretical dry film thickness of 56 ± (1422.4 microns) without sand.

STRIPING

Striping or application of any other finishing products should be applied within eighteen (18) hours of the after applying FreedomTuff® 4000. It is recommended that an epoxy paint be used.

SPECIFICATION AND FIELD ASSISTANCE

Contact Freedom® Chemical Corporation for assistance.

Jobsite visits by Freedom® Chemical Corporation’s employees or its independent agents are solely for determining qualification for warranty.

DISPOSAL

All spilled material, unused contents of containers, empty containers and secondary containment spills/leaks, must be cleaned up and disposed of in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

See Product Information Bulletins for substrate preparation, packaging, coverage rates, primer, mixing and application information for each product selected.

FreedomTuff® products have a shelf life of 1 year from the date of manufacture, in factory-sealed containers.

TESTING IS REQUIRED FOR LEAK FREE WARRANTIES

Test the entire surface of the protective liner by spark testing at 100 volts per dry mil of lining thickness as per NACE Standard RPO 18B or ASTM D-1562 (steel) or ASTM D-4787 (concrete).

Substrate adhesion test should be performed seven days after application. All testing should be performed by a qualified testing agency. Freedom® Chemical Corporation is not responsible for testing.
