PART 3 EXECUTION
 
3.1
EXAMINATION
A.
Examine substrates, areas and conditions, with Installer present, for compliance with requirements for maximum moisture content, installation tolerances and other conditions affecting installation or performance.
B.
If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Concrete surfaces shall be free of laitance, oil, grease, curing compounds, loose particles, friable matter, dirt, bituminous products and all other contaminants.
B.
Moisture Testing: Perform moisture vapor emission (calcium chloride) test in accordance with ASTM F1869 including:
1.
Perform three tests for the first 1,000 square feet (93 square meters) and then one test per subsequent 1,000 square feet (93 square meters).
2.
Application may only proceed when the vapor/moisture emission rates does not exceed 3 pounds per 1,000 square feet (1.36 kg per 93 square meters) in 24 hours.
3.
If the vapor drive exceeds limit specified above, install manufacturer's recommended vapor mitigation system to lower the value to the acceptable limit.
C.
Mechanical Surface Preparation:
1.
Shot blast all surfaces to receive resin flooring system with a mobile steel shot, dust recycling machine (Blastrac or equal). All surface and embedded accumulations of paint, bodycoats hardened concrete layers, laitance, power trowel finishes and other similar surface characteristics shall be completely removed leaving a bare concrete surface having a minimum profile of CSP 4 (medium shotblast) as described by the International Concrete Repair Institute.
2.
Floor areas inaccessible to the mobile blast machines shall be mechanically abraded to the same degree of cleanliness, soundness and profile using diamond grinders, needle guns, bush hammers, or other suitable equipment.
3.
Where the perimeter of the substrate to be coated is not adjacent to a wall or curb, a minimum 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) key cut shall be made to properly seat the system, providing a smooth transition between areas. The detail cut shall also apply to drain perimeters and expansion joint edges.
4.
Cracks and joints (non-moving) greater than 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) wide are to be chiseled or chipped-out and repaired per manufacturer's recommendations.
D.
At spalled or worn areas, mechanically remove loose or delaminated concrete to a sound concrete and patch per manufactures recommendations.
E.
Final installation surfaces shall be dry and any remaining dust or loose particles shall be removed using a vacuum or clean, dry, oil-free compressed air.
3.3
INSTALLATION
A.
Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
B.
The system shall be applied in four distinct steps as listed below:
