Throughout the application the sanded surface must be clean and dry.
STEP ONE: 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 minimumtheoretical dry filmthickness of 8 mils (203.2microns) per coat. Do not apply more primer to substrate than can be coated with FreedomTuff® 4280 within eighteen (18) hours of application. If primer is not coated within the allotted time, sand and re-apply primer. Allow primer to become tack free prior to application of FreedomTuff® 4280. 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).
STEP TWO: Apply 1¼ gallon (4.731765 liters) per 100 square feet of FreedomTuff® 4280 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® 4280 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. Recoat window is within 24 hours of application, if not recoated within 24 hours, sand and re-prime the surface and proceed with recoat. NOTE: Turn radii and ramps require an additional coat of FreedomTuff® 4280 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.
STEP THREE: 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® 4295, to achieve a slip-resistant finish. Excess aggregate must be completely removed. Do not apply more FreedomTuff® 4300 than can be top coated within twenty-four (24) hours. Allow Step four to dry prior to application of FreedomTuff® 4000.
STEP FOUR: Apply 1 gallon (3.7854) of FreedomTuff® 4000 top coat in enough quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical of 16 mils (406.4 microns). 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 64± mils (1625.6 microns) with primer (sand not included).
It is recommended that the end user check the suitability of using an epoxy paint for striping. Apply striping within eighteen (18) hours of applying FreedomTuff® top coats.
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.
All Spilled material, unused contents of containers, empty containers and secondary containment spills and leaks must be cleaned up in accordance with local, state and federal regulations. FreedomTuff® products have a shelf life of 1 year from the date of manufacture, in factory-sealed containers.
Perform an adhesion test prior to starting any coating project. 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.
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).
