Description NanoPlast P123 is water reducing concrete admixture and is chloride free and based on
a blend of specially selected lignosulphonate and synthetic polymers. It is supplied as a low
viscosity brown solution which instantly disperses in water. NanoPlast P123 disperses the
fine particles in the concrete mix, enabling the water content of the concrete to perform
more effectively and improving the consistency of the concrete. This produces higher levels
of workability for the same water content, allowing benefits such as water reduction and
increased strengths to be taken.
Primary applications • Flatwork concrete
• Architectural concrete
• General purpose ready mixed concrete

NanoPlast AEA
Water reducing and air entertaining concrete admixture

Description NanoPlast AEA is a chloride free air entraining and water reducing admixture based on
synthetic surfactant and special polymer. NanoPlast AEA acts at the interface between the
mixing water and cement/aggregate particles to produce microscopic air bubbles, which are
evenly distributed throughout the concrete. The entrained air enhances durability by providing
protection against the rapid temperature changes found in freezing and thawing conditions and
with the use of de-icing salts.
Primary applications • Roads and bridge decks, airport runways and taxiways and other concrete exposed to
potential frost damage.
• To improve cohesion and workability of concrete mixes where poorly graded aggregates
must be used and bleeding, segregation or sand runs occur.
Advantages • Air entrainment increases the resistance of concrete to attack by frost and de-icing
salts,reducing problems of surface scaling and concrete failure.
• Entrained air bubbles assist in the formation of stable cohesive mix, reducing segregation
and bleeding.
• Air entrainment improves workability and helps produce a dense, uniform, close textured
surface free from gravel nests and sand runs, further enhancing durability.
• Excellent air bubble stability allows use with a wide range of aggregate qualities and mix
conditions.
• Typical dosage levels are higher than for standard air entraining admixtures, allowing
increased accuracy of dosing and better control in critical situations.
• Synthetic basis reduces potential for incompatibility problems during dispensing of
admixture combinations.
Specifications Complies with ASTM C-260.
Packaging 210 Ltr. drums, 1000 Ltr. totes and bulk.
Storage Store in a dry and cool place below 35°C. Protect from direct sunlight.

NanoForm O
Oil based, low VOC, concrete form release agent

Description NanoForm O is a concrete form release agent with exceptional performance and ease of use
that is unmatched by water based form release products. It is a specially formulated synthetic
based mould oil, having release properties which are superior to those of a conventional
mould oil. NanoForm O is supplied as a clear liquid ready for direct application. In addition to
preventing adhesion of the cement matrix to the form work, NanoForm O allows air, which
would otherwise be trapped, to escape from the surface during placing and vibration. This
air release property minimizes surface blemishes and results in a substantial reduction in
remedial costs.
Primary applications NanoForm O can be used on steel, timber, plywood and plastic form work
Advantages • Forms release easily and cleanly from concrete
• No staining
• Dramatically reduces the occurrence of voids and bug holes
• Tolerant to freezing conditions during storage and transportation
• Treated forms are ready for use quickly easy storage and shipping
• Very low odor
• Ready to use
Specifications Corp of Engineers CE 1401.01 (17.4) & CW 03101 (5.3)
GSA CE 204 (3-03-K) ACI 347-68.
Packaging 200 Ltr Drums.
Storage Store in a dry and cool place below 35°C. Protect from direct sunlight.
Shelf life 12 months if stored properly in original unopened packaging.
Properties Appearance: White liquid
Specific gravity: 0.9 + 0.01 at 20°C.
Instruction for use Mould preparation: All moulds, new or used, must be cleaned of surface deposits of rust
, concrete, oil or other materials. Inadequate cleaning may lead to surface blemishes due
to the adhering material. The use of a proprietary chemical degreaser or acid cleaning is
recommended.
Application: If only limited use of the form work is envisaged, new timber moulds may be
coated directly with blended NanoForm O solution. If forms are regularly re-used the surface
should initially be coated with a suitable polyurethane sealer. This provides increased
protection to the timber surface, improves ease of cleaning and prevents the buildup of
large residual levels of release agent in the timber of the form which may lead, over time, to
increased surface dusting or retardation. Blended NanoForm O can be applied by all normal
methods, including brush, sponge and conventional spray. Where suitable, spray application
is recommended. Non-absorbent surfaces require a single application. New, unsealed, timber
surfaces should be re-coated if delay in use of the mould leads to absorption of the release
agent into the timber.
Coverage Depending on the porosity and texture of the mould surface, typical coverage rates of 20
to 60 m² /liter will be obtainable from NanoForm O. Best results will be obtained with the
thinnest practical coating. Over application should be avoided. Excessive application on flat
surfaces or which leads to pooling of release agent in the corners of forms is uneconomic
and can lead to surface dusting or, in worst cases, surface retardation.
Cleaning & Disposal NanoForm O may be removed from tools and equipment with diesel when it is wet. On drying
may be removed with NanoSolvent. Don’t dispose of into water or soil but according to local
regulations.
Precautions/Limitations After application of NanoForm O, the treated area must be protected from rain before the
concrete placed.
Health & safety Possible risk of irreversible effects in contact with skin. Wear suitable protective clothing ,
gloves and eye / face protection. Barrier creams provide additional skin protection. Should
accidental skin contact occur, remove immediately with plenty of clean water and seek
medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately- do not induce vomiting.

Priming: NanoPrimer should be used. Mix NanoPrimer in the proportions supplied by adding
the entire contents of the hardener tin to the contents of the base tin and thoroughly mix.
Once mixed this should be applied to the substrate and rolled or brushed well in. If the
NanoPrimer is totally absorbed the substrate should be re-primed. The NanoMortar REP
should be applied between 15 minutes to 3 hours after the application of NanoPrimer, while
the NanoPrimer is still tacky.
Mixing: The NanoMortar REP base and hardener components should be thoroughly mixed
in the base container. In cold conditions it will greatly aid mixing if the materials are stored
in warm conditions. Once the base and hardener are thoroughly mixed they should be
transferred to a suitable forced action mechanical mixer and add the aggregate slowly.
Once all the aggregate is added, mix thoroughly for 3 -4 minutes until a homogeneous mix is
obtained.
Application: Apply the mixed NanoMortar REP to the prepared substrate by wood float,
pressing firmly into place to ensure positive adhesion and full compaction. Thoroughly
compact the mortar around any exposed reinforcement. In restricted location, or where
exposed reinforcing steel is present, application by gloved hands is an acceptable alternative

Storage Store in a dry and cool place below 35°C. Protect from direct sunlight.
Shelf Life 2 years in original, unopened packaging.
Instructions for use Preparation: Ensure all contact surfaces are free from oil or grease contamination.
Where feasible, insert drinking straws or wires into the crack at sites (150 to 400 mm
apart) selected for injection ports. Bond injection ports over the crack at these points with
NanoMortar FEP, removing the straws or wires after the NanoMortar FEP has hardened. (If
crack is obstructed at the surface, access may first be gained by vacuum flush drilling.) The
crack should then be sealed between ports with NanoMortar FEP.
Mixing of NanoMortar FEP: Mix only the quantity of sealant that can be applied within the
pot life. Pour a small quantity of the resin into a suitable bucket and slowly add the hardener.
Stir until a smooth thick cream consistency is obtained. Mix further quantities as required.
Mixing of NanoInjection Resin: Pour all the contents of Hardener pack into Base container.
Mix for 2 minutes or more until homogeneous. At extreme temperatures refer to gel time
information to enable required handling procedures to be adopted. Mechanical mixing
is preferable (i.e. Jiffy mixer in slow speed drill) ensuring that the sides and bottom of the
container are repeatedly scraped.
Injection: The product may be pumped into place using a standard ‘grease gun’ technique.
The size of the injection pump should be related to the job in hand. For small-scale jobs a small
Gun may be used. Where greater rates of injection are required a hand pump may be used,
or bulk supplies of NanoInjection Resin may be used with twin metering/mixing machines.
Connect the pump to the injection port using nylon reinforced PVC hose and clips. Injection
should commence at the widest part of the crack, or at the lower end if crack is uniform,
closing that port and transferring injection to the next when the resin is seen to have reached it.
12 to 18 hours after injection, the injection tubes should be broken off and any damage made
good using NanoMortar FEP.

NanoGrout Admix
Expanding and plasticizing grouting admixture

Description NanoGrout Admix is a powdered admixture used for the positive expansion and water
reduction for Portland cement concrete. Its functional mechanism is based on the
formation of an expansive component. The material is a combination of a plasticizing agent
and a gas producing expansion medium. The plasticizing agent allows the use of a reduced
water/cement ratio with consequent increased strengths and durability. The expansive
medium counteracts the natural settlement and plastic shrinkage of the grout and aids
stability and cohesion. Sufficient restrained expansion is developed to ensure a high degree
of interfacial contact.
Primary Applications • Flatwork concrete
• Bridge decks
• Parking structures
• Interior/Exterior
• Arena/Artificial skating rinks
• Walls/Parapets
• Storage tanks
• Watertight construction
• Bed grouting/Duct grouting
• Non-shrink in filling and jointing
• Pre-stressed cable ducts
Features /Benefits • The expansion characteristics of NanoGrout Admix allow shrinkage reduction for
concrete.

NanoGrout EP
General purpose epoxy grout

Instruction for use Concrete surface preparation:


All contact surfaces must be free from oil, grease, freestanding water or any loosely
adherent material. Concrete surfaces should be cut back to a sound base. All dust must be
removed and bolt holes or fixing pockets blown clean of any dirt or debris.
Steel Surface preparation:
All steel surfaces should be shot blasted free of rust and flaky mill scale. Cleaned surfaces
may be protected by the application of NanoPrimer.
Shuttering:
The form work should be constructed to be leakproof as NanoGrout EP products are free-
flowing grouts. Loss of grout once the material is placed, but not hardened, will result
in incomplete filling of the gap. For free-flow grout conditions it is essential to provide a
hydrostatic head of grout. To achieve this a feeding hopper system should be used.
Placing:
Pour all the contents of the hardener pack into the base container. Mix using a slow speed
power drill and paddle until homogeneous. Pour all the liquid into a container with a capacity

NanoGrout Anchor
Two component epoxy anchoring grout

Description NanoGrout Anchor is a two component epoxy anchoring grout supplied in pre-measured
quantities. The material cures quickly to give consistent, high performance anchorages. The two
versions of NanoGrout Anchor are available.
Pourable grade use in vertical down holes where the hole is 8 to 40 mm greater in diameter
than the bar. Thixotropic grade use in overhead or horizontal holes where the hole is up to 25
mm greater in diameter than the bar. The thixotropic nature of NanoGrout Anchor reduces flow
of grout out of the hole.
Primary Applications NanoGrout Anchor anchoring grouts are used for anchoring of steel bars into concrete,
brickwork, masonry and rock.
Recommended applications include:
• Installation of starter bars
• Base plate bolts
• MOT Bolts
• Installation of balustrades
• Installation of barriers and safety fences
• Installation of tie bars.
Advantages • Low creep characteristics under sustained loading.

NanoGrout Anchor
Two component epoxy anchoring grout

Hole preparation and formation


Optimum performance of NanoGrout Anchor grouts requires rough sided, dust-free holes. Use
of rotary percussive drills with air or water flushing is recommended. Diamond drilled holes
should be under-reamed or the surface roughened with a drill steel. Cast holes should preferably
be of inverse dovetail configuration. If parallel sided holes are cast they should be rough to
provide adequate keying.
Bar preparation:
All bars should be deformed. They should preferably be degreased and all flaky rust removed.
Mixing:
A complete pack of resin and catalyzed filler should be mixed in one operation. Mixing may be
carried out manually or mechanically. When a smooth, even consistency is achieved the grout
is ready for use and should be placed well within the gel time of the grout. Packs have been
designed to produce practical and economic volumes of grout.
Do not attempt to mix partial pack components.
Pouring:
The mixed grout should be poured steadily from one side only to eliminate the entrapment of air.
Continuous grout flow is essential. Sufficient grout must be available prior to starting. The time
taken to pour a batch should be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next batch. To pour
a batch should be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next batch.
Consumption:
Volume of NanoGrout Anchor required in ml for each 100 mm of bond length. (200 mm bond
length is the minimum recommended.).

50 180 150 90
62 280 225

These figures allow for a 25% wastage factor.


Cleaning & disposal All tools and equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with NanoSolvent.
Precautions & Limitations Keep away from sources of ignition - no smoking. In the event of fire extinguish with CO2 or foam.
Health & safety In common with most epoxy resin systems, the NanoGrout Anchor range will react exothermically
when mixed and left in bulk. The heat generated may be excessive and can lead to vapour emission
and splash damage to adjacent. To reduce the risk of exotherm, these products should only be
mixed when ready for use and then applied without delay. Any unused residue should be poured

The contents of the base and hardener cans should be stirred thoroughly to disperse
any settlement. The entire contents of the hardener can should be added to the base
container and mixed thoroughly for at least 3 minutes until a uniform colour is obtained,
taking particular care to scrape the sides and bottom of the container. It is recommended
that mechanical mixing be employed, using a Jiffy mixer on a heavy duty, slow speed electric
drill. To facilitate application at temperatures below 10°C the separate components should
be warmed in hot water to a maximum of 25°C before mixing. However, the mixed material
will need to be used speedily as the pot life of the standard grade will be reduced to 20
minutes. Alternatively the materials should be stored in a heated building and only removed
immediately before use.

Placing:The concrete slab is ready for the NanoFloor Premix when a thumb pressed hard onto
the surface only leaves a ‘print’ of about 3 - 5 mm depth. Broadcast the mix evenly by hand
or with a suitable spreading device. Apply approximately 4.0 to 6.0 kg/m² in two applications.
With manual application the surface bleed water should be removed or allowed to evaporate
and NanoFloor Premix should be sprinkled onto the screeded concrete evenly in 2 stages: (1st
stage 4 kg/m2, 2nd stage 2 kg/m2). Care should be taken to apply the powder so as to avoid
creating ripples etc. in the concrete surface. Casting NanoFloor Premix powder carelessly or
further than 2 meters from point of casting will reduce the consistency of finish. Wait until the
NanoFloor Premix has been evenly moistened by the water in the concrete. The first stage
should be worked into the slab using a low speed mechanical trowel, held perfectly flat, followed
immediately with the sprinkling on of the second measurement of NanoFloor Premix. NanoFloor
Premix results in the slab surface becoming stiff more quickly than usual. Careful trimming
should take place along the edges where adjoining slabs are to be poured. Final finishing to close
pores and remove undulations can be achieved either by hand or power trowel.

Note: If parts of the surface come loose or if the laitance rises, this means the concrete is still
too fresh.

NanoPrimer
High performance, surface primer

Description NanoPrimer is a adhesion promoter for use in difficult conditions where a more conventional
primer may not give adequate performance, providing a moisture barrier tack coat to
green or damp concrete and as an excellent anti-corrosion protection primer for steel.
Primary applications • All cementitious substrates including damp/green concrete allowing the application
of either epoxy or polyurethane self leveler or screed. To allow the early application of
methacrylate waterproof coatings.
• Steel.
• Chemical resistant primer.
• Other damp or difficult to wet out substrates.
Features & benefits Provides a barrier between damp or wet surfaces and moisture sensitive finishing coats
such as epoxy and polyurethane floor finishes. Offers a high degree of anti-corrosion
protection. Relatively low viscosity with good working properties.Outstanding adhesion to
damp concrete or sand blasted steel.
Properties Type: epoxy
S.G.: 1.08 + 0.01
Viscosity: 800-1200 MPa’s
Gel Time: 130 minutes @ 20°C
Coverage: 0.15-0.20 m2/kg
Packaging 1kg and 3kg pack.
Storage Store in dry and cool place below 35oC. Protect from direct sunlight.
Shelf life 24 months if stored properly in original unopened packaging.
Instruction for use Surface preparation:
Concrete surfaces should be clean, free from oil, grease and chemical contamination. Steel
surfaces should be degreased and blasted to remove rust, scale and oxide layers.
Mixing:
Add the contents of the hardener tin to the base tin and mix thoroughly for approximately
1-3 minutes until homogenous.
Application:
Application of the primer to steel should take place immediately after blasting or within
4 hours. Apply NanoPrimer to the substrate with a stiff bristled brush ensuring that the
primer is well worked into the surface. Coverage is 6-8 m2 per kg depending on surface
profile. Allow the primer to become tacky, between 2-4 hours depending on temperature.
Once the primer has achieved a tacky state, the subsequent coating/screed should then
be applied. Normal application temperature is between 5 and 15°C, higher temperatures
will reduce the time in which the over coating materials can be applied. Should the primer
dry on the surface, a further primer coating should be applied, always allow the primer to
become tacky before over coating.
Cleaning & disposal All tools should be cleaned with NanoSolvent. Do not dispose off into water or soil but
according to local regulations.
Precautions & Limitations In common with most epoxy resin systems, the NanoPrimer will react exothermically when
mixed and left in bulk.
Health & safety NanoPrimer is capable of irritating unprotective skin, we therefore recommend the use of
a suitable barrier cream and gloves.

Packaging 15kg pack
Storage Store in a dry and cool place below 35°C. Protect from direct sunlight.
Shelf life 24 months if stored properly in original unopened packaging.
Instruction for use Surface preparation:
All surfaces should be clean, dry, free from oil, grease and chemical contamination. Concrete
surfaces should be free from laitance which should be removed by grit blasting or scarifying. If
it is not practical to grit blast or scarify, it is possible to acid etch the floor. However, precautions
must be made to prevent the concrete from absorbing excess moisture. It is recommended
that concrete substrates should not have a moisture content of more than 75% RH. This can
be assessed using a hair hygrometer covered with polythene for 24 hours as recommended by
BS 8203. Should the strength or the surface stability of the concrete base be in doubt, then
we recommend a trial patch of NanoFloor Screed be applied to assess its suitability. On highly
polished/power floated floors, mechanical preparation or acid etching will be necessary.
Priming:
NanoPrimer should be used. Mix NanoPrimer in the proportions supplied by adding the entire
contents of the hardener tin to the contents of the base tin and thoroughly mix. Once mixed
this should be applied to the substrate and rolled or brushed well in. If the NanoPrimer is totally
absorbed the substrate should be reprimed. The NanoFloor Screed should be applied between
15 minutes and 3 hours after the application of NanoPrimer, while the NanoPrimer is still tacky.

NanoFloor Screed
Heavy duty, chemical and abrasion resistant epoxy floor screed

Mixing:
The NanoFloor Screed base and hardener components should be thoroughly mixed in the
base container. In cold conditions it will greatly aid mixing if the materials are stored in warm
conditions. Once the base and hardener are thoroughly mixed they should be transferred to a
suitable forced action mechanical mixer such as a crete angle the aggregate added slowly. Once
all the aggregate is added, mix thoroughly for 3 -4 minutes until a homogeneous mix is obtained.
Application:
The floor area can be divided into strips one meter wide with timber laths the thickness of the
required screed. The NanoFloor Screed is then laid in strips and worked into previously laid
sections and then allowed to harden. The mixed NanoFloor Screed should be raked evenly over
the primed surface and be tamped to ensure complete consolidation, then finished with a float
kept clean by wiping with a cloth dampened with NanoSolvent. NanoFloor Screed may be carried
up the wall to form a coving. Expansion joints in the floor must be maintained and filled with an
appropriate joint sealant. In wet areas where NanoFloor Screed is to be subjected to aggressive
chemical attack, it is recommended that the surface must be sealed with NanoCoat WB or
NanoCoat SB for added protection.
Cleaning & disposal All tools and equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with NanoSolvent. Do not
dispose off into water or soil but according to local regulations.
Precautions & Limitations Minimum application temperature 5°C. It is recommended that concrete substrates should not
have a moisture content of more than 75% RH.
Health & safety NanoFloor Screed and NanoPrimer, like similar products, are capable of irritating unprotected
sensitive skin, we therefore recommend the use of a suitable barrier cream and the wearing of
gloves and goggles.

NanoCoat SF
Solvent free, epoxy resin coating

Storage Store in dry and cool place below 35oC. Protect from direct sunlight.

Shelf life 24 months if store properly in original unopened packaging.

Instruction for use Surface preparation:


The surface to be treated should be dry, sound and free from loose materials. New concrete
should be at least 28 days cured and have a moisture content of less than 5%. Damaged or worn
areas should be repaired using NanoMortar FEP. Any laitance should be removed by physical
methods or by acid etching. If the strength or the surface stability of the concrete base be in
doubt, then we recommend a trial patch of NanoCoat SF be applied to assess its suitability. On
highly polished/power floated floors, mechanical preparation or acid etching will be necessary.
Priming:
Concrete should be primed with NanoPrimer. NanoPrimer should be mixed in the proportions
supplied. Add the entire contents of the hardener can to the base can. When thoroughly mixed,
preferably using a slow speed drill and paddle, the primer should be applied in a thin continuous
film, using rollers or stiff brushes. Work the primer well into the surface of the concrete taking
care to avoid ponding or over application. The primer should be left to achieve a tack-free
condition before applying the top coat. A second coat of primer may be required if the substrate
is excessively porous.
Mixing:
The base and hardener components of NanoCoat SF should be thoroughly stirred before the
two are mixed together. The entire contents of the hardener container should be poured into the
base container and the two materials mixed thoroughly at least 3 minutes. The use of a heavy-
duty slow speed, flameproof or air driven drill fitted with a Mixing Paddle is desirable. Mix these
components in the quantities supplied taking care to ensure all containers are scraped clean.
Application:
The first coat of NanoCoat SF should be applied using a good quality medium haired pile roller,
suitable for epoxy application, or squeegee to achieve a continuous coating. Ensure that loose
hairs on the roller are removed before use. A minimum film thickness of 200 microns should be
applied. This can be increased where specifications demand. When the base coat has reached
initial cure (12 hours @ 20°C or 5 hours at 35°C). The top coat can be applied by medium
haired roller, at minimum film thickness of 200 microns. Care should be taken to ensure that a
continuous film is achieved.

Coverage:
NanoPrimer: 6-8 m2/litre
NanoCoat SF (base coat): 5.0m2/litre@200 microns wft
NanoCoat SF (top coat): 5.0m2/litre@200 microns wft
Cleaning & disposal NanoCoat SF should be removed from tools and equipment with NanoSolvent after use.
Hardened material can only be removed mechanically. Do not dispose off into water or soil but
according to local regulations.
Health & safety Ensure adequate ventilation and avoid inhalation of vapours. Some people are sensitive to resins,
hardeners and solvents. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, and eye protection. If working
in confined areas, suitable respiratory protective equipment must be used. The use of barrier
creams provide additional skin protection. In case of contact with skin, rinse with plenty of clean
water, then cleanse with soap and water. Do not use solvent. In case of contact with eyes, rinse
immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek
medical attention immediately - do not induce vomiting.

Depending on the dry film thickness required, apply the rubberized bitumen coating @1–
4m²/lt./coat. On vertical areas, it is recommended to apply the coating in multiple layers
in order to avoid sagging of the heavy bodied coating. Subsequent coats shall be applied
only after the previous coat dries off completely and shall be applied at right angles to the
previous coat. Clean dry sand may be broadcasted onto the wet coating to provide a key
for the subsequent coats and achieve a greater dry film thickness. The coating should be
applied and finished up to the DPC level. If a plaster or cement render is to be applied on
the bitumen coated surface, clean dry sand shall be broadcasted on to the coating whilst it
is still wet. Leave the coating for curing for a minimum period of 48 hours before applying
any protection board or backfilling. Care shall be taken to ensure that the first coat is not
punctured during the application of the second coat. However, if the coating is damaged,
the area can be readily over coated provided the surface preparation is done properly.
Curing: 7 days

NanoFlex PS
Two part, polysulphide joint sealant

Coverage:

1 Liter of NanoFlex PS covers length of joints in meters


Depth of Joint Width of Joint (mm)
(mm) 6 10 15 20 25 30 40 50
6 27.5 16.5

15 4.4 3.33 2.6 2.2
20 2.5 2 1.6 1.25
25 1.6 1.3 1 0.8

Joint Fillers: Where applicable, joint filler should be used to partially fill the joint in order to
provide the correct depth of sealant. It is also necessary to provide a bond breaker between
the filer and the sealant. A suitable material is closed cell cross-linked foam polyethylene strip.
Masking Tape: Masking tape may be used to improve the neatness of the finished seal by
protecting the face edges of the joint. This should be removed immediately after the NanoFlex
PS has been applied.
Mixing: Combine the base and curing agent and use a slow speed electric mixer fitted with a
suitable paddle to stir until a homogenous mix is obtained. Ensure that the mixing paddle is taken
round the sides of the tin so that every particle of material is thoroughly mixed. A palette knife
should be used to scrape round the inside of the tin to return any unmixed sealantto the mass
of material.
Application: Application can be by pouring, gun or trowel according to the grade used. When
using a bulk-loading gun, place over the centre hole of the filler plate: apply steady downward
pressure whilst drawing the rod of the bulkloading gun, this will result in the barrel being filled.
Extrude the sealant firmly into the joint by maintaining an even pressure on the trigger ofthe gun.
Ensure complete filling of the jointto avoid slumping. Clean the gun nozzle occasionally to avoid
contamination.
Tooling & Finishing: To obtain a smooth finish, tool the sealant with a spatula wet with diluted
detergent. This breaks air bubbles and exposes any air pockets present whilst compressing the
sealant and promoting adhesion to the joint sides.

Cleaning & Disposal Clean tools and hands with soapy water. Do not dispose off into water or soil but according to
local regulations.

Precautions /limitations Do not use on dusty or damp surfaces.

Health & Safety NanoFlex PS is not classified as dangerous. During application wear suitable protective clothing,
