EPOGROUT PC EXTRA is supplied as a three-component kit consisting of base, hardener and a bag of selected, graded aggregate. The resin and hardener components should be stirred separately for three minutes or until thoroughly blended. The contents of the hardener should be added to the base component and stirred with a heavy duty drill until all the components are thoroughly blended. Then slowly add the entire amount of aggregates to the resin while the mixer is still running. Partial mixing of the three components should not be allowed under any circumstances.
Pour the mixed products steadily form one side only to eliminate the entrapment of air, assuring a continuous flowing of product. It is advisable to calculate and mix enough each time quantity for one pile or multiple of pile.
The mixed product should be strictly placed within the product pot life. Watch the formwork while placing the product, if any leakage is noted, seal the leaking spot immediately.
Once the product dries, the formwork can be removed. Clean the surface by sanding it manually to remove all traces of release agent, and to provide an adhesive key with the successor recommend waterproofing system.
