Throughout the application the sanded surface must be clean and dry.
For optimum results proceed with application while air temperatures are between 40º F (4.4º C) and 104º F (40º C). Insure that the outside temperature is at least 6º F (-14.44° C) above the dew point and rising. Apply while the outside temperature is descending, high or Low temperatures and humidity can significantly affect the cure time and pot life.
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 minimum theoretical dry film thickness of 8 mils (203.2 microns) per coat.
Do not apply more primer to substrate than can be coated with FreedomTuff® 4300 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® 4300.
STEP TWO: Apply 1¼ gallon (4.7317 liters) of FreedomTuff® 4300 at 100 square feet per gallon (9.290 m²) or in enough quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical 20 mils dry (508 microns); film thickness, immediately pour the FreedomTuff® 4300 onto the horizontal surface and spread evenly over the entire surface using notched trowel or squeegee.
Prior to its full set and starting to gel, broadcast to refusal a washed, dry, rounded, contamination free 30 x 70 nominal sieve size sand (.0232”/.600 millimeters, .0083”/.212 millimeters) with 6.5 Moh’s minimum hardness into the FreedomTuff® 4300, or as required to achieve the specified 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 FreedomTuff® 4300 to dry prior to application of FreedomTuff® 4440.
STEP THREE: Apply ¾ gallons (2.839 liters) of FreedomTuff® 4440 top coat at 100 square feet per gallon (9.290 m²) or in enough quantity to obtain a minimum theoretical of 12 mils (304.79 microns). Immediately pour the FreedomTuff® 4440 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.
FreedomTuff® 4440 should be applied in a smooth pattern to establish a uniform thickness and appearance.
Re-coating FreedomTuff® 4440 the surface must be properly prepared and may require priming prior to re-coating.
DRY FILM THICKNESS
Freedom® Chemical Corporation’s FreedomTuff® mechanical room with primer is a theoretical 37± mils (939.8 microns) dry film thickness without sand using FreedomTuff® 4440 top coat.
SAND OR AGGREGATE
Apply sand to refusal for the FreedomTuff® mechanical room deck for a slip resistant finish.
