Application

Substrate Preparation

Prior to the application of PORAX, the surface should be washed with a scrubbing brush or a monobrush using NORDECAL P diluted with water in a ratio ranging from 1:5 to 1:10 by volume (1 liter of NORDECAL P in 5 or 10 liters of water). Rinse thoroughly with water and completely remove all resulting liquid avoiding formation of stagnation zones on the area to be treated.

 

Application

After 7-8 days from washing, once the floor is completely dry and clean, it is possible to proceed with the application of PORAX with a short hair roller or a flat brush in 3 or 4 coats spaced 1-2 hours apart from each other depending on the aesthetic effect to be achieved.

It is advisable to pour the product into a mixing container where the roller or the brush is to be dipped into, then apply PORAX taking care of evenly impregnating the substrate, avoiding the formation of any product's puddles.
