Procedures

Mixing:

Mix with a drill mixer and jiffler paddle or similar paddle. Do not exceed 400 r.p.m. when mixing or the product could be air entrained which will pin holing and decrease bonding characteristics. Up to 8 ounces of clean potable water may be added to BMI Acrylic 500 until desired consistency is achieved.

Limitations:

Use BMI Acrylic 500 Fine Finish when surface and ambient conditions are above 40*F and below 100*F during application and cure time. BMI Acrylic 500 is not recommended for use on non-load bearing or frozen substrates. Finish color is very consistent but may vary slightly depending on suction, drying time, application technique and ambient conditions. BMI Acrylic 500 should be protected from rain for a minimum of 4 days (if curing at low temperatures, protect for 7 days).

Surface Preperations:

Surfaces must be clean and free of bond-inhibiting materials such as dirt, dust, rust, grease, oil, efflorescence, mildew, fungus, form-release agents, or any other contaminants. Remove or repair any loose paint, mortar, stucco, concrete or masonry by water-blasting, sand-blasting, scraping or using a wire brush. Substrate should be securely fastened. Repair all cracks with appropriate patching compound. Mask off area accordingly. Prime all surfaces with BMI Primer 100 before applying BMI Acrylic 500.

Application:

BMI Acrylic 500 Fine Finish should be applied with a stainless steel trowel. Enough material should be applied to cover all surfaces. Always apply BMI Acrylic 500 in continuous application, working to a wet edge to avoid cold joints. Finish material with a plastic float using a “figure 8” pattern. Avoid water drops and runs on uncured material.
