Preparation and Application

Surface Preparation
Surface must be firm and free of loose debris, dirt, oils, grease, mildew, or any substance that may interfere with bond. All cracks larger than 1/32″ need to be filled with a good grade acrylic caulk. All other types of repairs or patches must be made prior to coating as well. Allow repairs to cure before beginning application. Surfaces may be slightly damp but not wet. An overly damp surface may promote runs or sags.

It is advisable to test previously coated or treated surfaces by first applying POLAGARD FLEX-O-TEX to a 4′ x 4′ area and allow it to cure. Later, inspect the test area for adhesion, voids or sags. It may be necessary to sand or rough previously painted surfaces to improve bond.

Application
POLAGARD FLEX-O-TEX is applied straight out of the can after 2 minutes of low speed stirring or mixing. Apply the product using a brush, texture roller or spray technique.

POLAGARD FLEX-O-TEX may be thinned with no more than 4 oz. of water per gallon if necessary. Apply POLAGARD FLEX-O-TEX in 2 coats at a wet thickness of about 15-18 mils per coat. Apply the 2nd coat after the first coat has set (about 2-4 hours)

Clean up
Clean tools and equipment with water before the product dries; after that, solvent cleaning may be necessary.

Limitations
Do not apply to frozen or saturated surfaces. Do not apply if the temperature is predicted to drop below 35°F within 4 hours of completion of application. Do not apply if precipitation is forecast within 4 hours of completion of application. Shelf life is 12 months in closed containers stored indoors. POLAGARD FLEX-O-TEX dries faster than ordinary coatings. On warm sunny days, work in the shade as much as possible. Back rolling or retouching areas that have begun to dry may peel the coating.

Read the container label warning and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for important health and safety information prior to the use of this product.
