Important: It is a necessary requirement to prime the substrate from Lankem Kemikote primer before Lankem Kemikote epoxy floor paint application. Read and adhere Lankem Kemikote primer label instructions carefully before application.
Preparation: Stir coloured base well and mix two components, based to hardener 2:1 ratio by weight till the mixture is homogeneous. The full contents of tins will provide 1kg or 1 litre and will cover 85-100 sq. ft. depending on the porosity of the surface. For smaller floor areas, combine two parts of base with one part of hardener. i.e. to paint 25 sq. ft. use only quarter from each tin.
Application: Once mixed, Kemikote has a pot life of 4 – 5 hours. It hardens after and cannot be used thereafter. Ensure that the floor is ready for painting before mixing, and start painting immediately once the mixture is ready. Kemikote can be applied by a brush, roller or spray. Use Kemikote thinner to dilute if necessary or if applied by spraying. Clean brush, roller, sprayer, bucket and other equipment with Kemikote thinner immediately after painting. If the brush is not cleaned with Kemikote thinner it cannot be used subsequently.
Re coatable: After the first application, second coat is recommended to be applied after 24 hours and within 48 hours. The second coat should not be applied when the first coat is still wet. Once application is complete, light foot traffic can be permitted after 72 hours. Furniture should be introduced only after 7 days.
