Follow the directions below to apply the Polyshield. Polyshield is a 3-Part product. Once mixed with the Polyshield Comp B & Thinners, you will have 45 minute working time.
Standard consumption for Polyshield is 1l Comp A + 400ml Comp B + 125ml Polyshield Thinners for 1 coat over 10m2.
You will need a squeegee trowel and tray plus a clean mixing bucket and measuring jug.
Applying AquaMax Pro for Floors
Once the Polyshield has dried, you will need to add a coat of AquaMax Pro to get the desired finish.
The directions on how to apply the AquaMax Pro for Floors are also detailed below. AquaMax Pro is a 2-Part product. Once mixed with the AquaMax Pro Floors Comp B, you will have 45 minute working time.
Standard consumption for AquaMax Pro for Floors is 500ml Comp A + 100ml Comp B for 1 coat over 10m2.
You will need a medium pile microfibre roller and tray plus a clean mixing bucket and measuring jug.
Mixing the Polyshield
Add the Polyshield and the Polyshield Comp B in a mixing jug and stir gently with a mechanical paint mixer on a low speed for 3 full minutes. It will appear thick at first but will loosen as you mix it. To increase working time and fluidity, add 125ml Polyshield Thinners per 1l of Part A.
For this coat, you will need 1l Polyshield + 400ml Polyshield Comp B + 125ml Polyshield Thinners per 10m2.
The mixing ratio is 4 x Polyshield : 1.6 Polyshield Hardener: 500ml Polyshield Thinners.
To get the full benefit from the sealer, you must use the full consumption across the area.
Applying the Polyshield
Using a Squeegee Trowel on a Pole will help you to apply the Polyshield across bigger floor areas quickly and effectively.
Pour the Polyshield from the starting point across the width of the room. Using light pressure on the trowel, spread the Polyshield evenly across the floor, working from one side of the room to the other, taking care to get full coverage everywhere.
Aim for even coverage without ridges or thick spots.
IMPORTANT: Eye Protection, Gloves, Filtering Masks, suitable for use with Polyaspartic products must be worn when working with Polyshield.
Leave to Dry
Polyshield should be dry in around 12 hours but may vary depending on temperature and humidity. The finish is very glossy, so you’ll need to add a coat of AquaMax Pro for Floors over it to achieve the desired finish.
Mixing AquaMax Pro Floors
Mix the AquaMax Pro Comp A with the AquaMax Pro Floors Comp B in a mixing jug and stir gently with a paint stirrer for at least a minute. Do not whisk as it will put too much air in the mix. Leave to rest for a couple of minutes before applying.
For 1 coat, you will need 500ml AquaMax Pro Comp A + 100ml AquaMax Pro Floors Comp B per 10m2.
The mixing ratio is 5 x AquaMax Pro Comp A : 1 x AquaMax Pro Floors Comp B.
The mixture will only last for 45 minutes once combined.
Applying the AquaMax Pro Floors
Use a medium pile roller to apply the AquaMax Pro evenly across the entire area.
Starting in one corner, apply the AquaMax Pro in an area and then go back over it very gently with the roller to remove any excess product, air bubbles and lines.
Work quickly & randomly keeping the edge wet.
Ensure you cover the full area with AquaMax Pro and use the full amount provided (500ml+100ml per 10m2 for each coat).
Leave to Dry
Leave for at least 48 hours. Light use only for the first 14 days.
IMPORTANT: Like all cementitious products, microcement takes 28 days to full harden. It’s at it’s softest for the first 14 days after laying. During this time it should only be subjected to light use and light foot traffic.
Any heavy work is not recommended, but if it does take place then we recommend that you cover the floor with a breathable material or only cover down whilst working & lift the protection off for the majority of the time. The surface needs to dry out and harden. If airflow is restricted, it will stain & not cure correctly.
