The method for applying the following NOVACRYLIC products is the same for every surface: Novafil, Novacourt, Novaplay I & II, and Novabond. All are poured onto the surface and spread with a squeegee. Please refer to individual product data sheets for dilution instructions.
The surface must be clean (as described in the preparation instructions). Mix the coating according to the directions outlined in the description of each product in section 3. Pour a windrow along the length of one edge of the pavement to be coated. Using a rubber blade squeegee, insert approximately 1/3 of the width of the blade into the windrow, angle it so to "plow" the windrow further onto the pavement, pull the squeegee the length of the pavement. Upon reaching the end, reverse direction and repeat the procedure. This procedure should be repeated until the entire surface is covered. It's important to keep adding fresh coating to the windrow. Do not let the windrow run dry. When adding material to the windrow, care should be taken to work the fresh coating in with the older material. Do not stop for extended periods of time nor take breaks until the coat being applied is dry. Most NOVACRYLIC coatings will be part of a multiple coat system. After each coat is dry inspect the entire surface. Scrape and remove any excess material or foreign matter. If necessary, touch up any repairs. Except for the final coat, most defects will be corrected by the application of the next coat.
MINIMUM APPLICATION TEMPERATURE IS 50 DEGREES FARENHEIT AND RISING
IMPORTANT: All NOVACRYLIC coatings are water-borne and cannot cure in cold temperatures or when subjected to moisture. Care should be taken not to apply coatings when rain is forecast or sudden drop of temperature is expected. Climactic conditions such as very cool evenings and high dew points dictate that work should be completed early in the day so the coatings can be exposed to enough warm sunlight to form a film before sunset. The opposite applies during times of high heat, low humidity and drying breerzes. Under these conditions, work very early in the morning or very late in the day. If the product seems to be drying too fast in hot weather, mist the pavement with water to make the application easier. CARE MUST BE TAKEN TO ALLOW EACH APPLICATION TO DRY THOUGHLY PRIOR TO RECOATING. Tools and equipment should be cleaned with soap and water soon after use.
