HOW TO APPLYSurface Preparation (See ICRI guidelines)
Concrete surfaces must be structurally sound, free of loose or deteriorated concrete, dust, dirt, paint, efflorescence, oil and all other contaminants. Abrade the surface by mechanical means to achieve a surface profile equal to CSP 2 in accordance with ICRI Guideline 310.2. Properly clean profiled area.
FasTrac Cement Wash requires 11 – 13 pts of potable water per 50 lb. (22.7 kg) of material. Additional water may be added to achieve desired consistency. Product may be mixed by hand or with a power drill with a “jiffy” type mixer to mix single bags for 3 minutes. Use of excessive water will reduce strength, causes crazing and may cause dusting under rapid drying conditions. Harder and tougher surfaces can be achieved by replacing one-half of the mixing water with FasTrac polymer. This will also aid in the curing process during rapid drying conditions.
At the time of application, the surfaces should be Saturated Surface Dry (SSD). Brush or trowel FasTrac Cement Wash onto the substrate, scrubbing or forcing the material into all pores and voids. After reaching the desired consistency, press firmly in place. Trowel to a smooth finish
Follow ACI guidelines for curing. In the case of high temperatures, high wind, or low humidity causing rapid surface drying, use a fog curing system or a water-based curing compound. DO NOT use solvent based curing compounds.
Clean all mixing and application equipment with water immediately following use. If allowed to dry on a surface, removal is extremely difficult.
Health and Safety
Make certain the most current versions of product data sheet and SDS are being used
KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. FasTrac Cement Wash is not a wearing surface. FasTrac Cement Wash can be applied to a maximum thickness of 1/8” (3.2 mm) per application. Do not over-trowel. Portions of the surface treated with FasTrac Cement Wash may have a different appearance than untreated surfaces. If a uniform appearance is desired, a decorative coating may be applied over the entire surface. Do not use solvent based curing compounds on this product. In all cases, consult the Safety Data Sheet before use.
In case of eye contact, flush thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes, and seek medical attention. In case of skin contact, wash affected areas with soap and water. If the irritation persists seek medical attention. Remove and wash contaminated clothing. If inhalation causes physical discomfort, remove to fresh air. If the discomfort persists, breathing difficulty occurs, or if swallowed seek medical attention. Refer to Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for further information
