The optimum dosage of SMOOTHER to meet specific requirement depending on porosity and rough substrate, the normal dosage range is from 0.7 to 1.0 kg/m2 per 0.5 mm thickness of layer. Substrate Preparation Substrates should be clean sound and free from oil, grease, laitance and loose particles. Metal surfaces should also be clean and free of rust, oil, grease and contaminants. Thoroughly clean repair area using high pressure water jet to remove all loose debris and contamination. The concrete should be presaturated for preferably 6 hours with water before application.
SMOOTHER is simply mixed with water to yield a stiff easily workable compound with shrinkage compensating properties. The quantity of water depends on the desired consistency but as a guide, we recommended, the entire contents of the bag should be added to the pre-measured (8.7 litres approximately) water while mixing. Mix with a paddle mixer or trowel to ensure a homogenous lump free material is achieved. Mix for approx. 3 minutes. Do not try to remix the product after losing workability by the addition of more water.
Apply SMOOTHER with a trowel or spatula. Press hard by hand. Thicker repairs may be achieved by working in layers. Build up in layers if nece CURING Keep repaired areas damp, with spraying water at least 24 hours
