The performance of this product will depend upon the degree of surface preparation. The surface to be coated must be clean and free from contamination.
Remove any fungal growth or algae with household bleach (3,5% solution of sodium hypochlorite) thinned 2 parts bleach to 1 part water by volume. Leave on the surface for approximately 1 hour and then scrub with a hard bristle brush to
remove all dead growth. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if necessary. Allow to dry.
Previously Painted Surfaces
Previously painted surfaces in good condition: Remove loose and flaking paint back to a sound substrate and a firm edge by scraping and sanding. Spot prime bare areas with appropriate primer. Clean with Sugar Soap solution to remove all contaminants and chalked material. Rinse with clean water to remove all traces of Sugar Soap. Alternatively, clean with high pressure water jet. Sand glossy enamel surfaces to a matt finish to aid adhesion.
Remove completely by scraping, wire brushing, sandpapering, etc. to expose the underlying substrate. Apply Ultimate Bonding Liquid or Ultimate Alkali plaster Primer. N.B. Bonding Liquid must be allowed to dry for 16hrs and overcoated within 3 days after application.
Previously painted surfaces in poor condition: Completely remove paint by most appropriate means or by stripping with Paint Stripper. Treat as for new work.
Asphalt: Clean, dry and apply the product directly to the surface. Concrete or screeded cement surfaces: Wet and brush the surface with stiff bristle brushes to remove dirt and excess laitance. If the surface is contaminated by oil use Hydrosolve. Scrub the Hydrosolve detergent into the surface and rinse off.
Remove the water and treat the damp surface by acid etching. Use ‘swimming pool acid’ i.e. hydrochloric or sulphuric acid. Acid etch as follows:
Mix water and acid in 3 or 4:1 ratio. Add clean, clear water to a plastic bucket.
Very carefully pour the acid in, being sure not to cause any spills or splashes. Do not use a metal container. Always pour acid into water. Never pour water into acid. If acid splashes back into your face, it can lead to disfiguring injuries or even blindness. Observe basic acid safety measures. Wear long sleeves, gloves, eye protection, and, if necessary, a face mask to protect against any fumes.
Test the strength of the acid, it should immediately begin to bubble and react.
Use a sprayer or watering can to distribute the acid. Rather than pour all of the acid onto one spot of the floor, which can leave some of the acid spent by the time it reaches the far corners of the concrete, use a plastic sprayer or watering can. This ensures a more even application. Immediately after spraying, use a squeegee to manually distribute so that the whole floor receives an even coating.
The floor needs to stay wet the entire time you are acid etching. Do not let the acid dry on the floor — if necessary, wet areas that are drying out.
Wait for the acid to react with the floor. Ensure that the acid has been evenly applied; wait for it to stop bubbling. Usually, this will take about 2-15 minutes. As the acid reacts with the floor, it will open up small, porous holes in the concrete, making it much more accepting of the paint coating. Inspect the surface as the acid works. The acid should be reacting evenly and uniformly across the surface. If there are spots where the acid is not reacting, this can be a sign that an unnoticed grease stain or contamination was present on the concrete. In which case, use a mechanical grinder, to finish etching the concrete. Neutralize any remaining acid with Alkali pH Restorer (powder dissolved in water)
Rinse the floor thoroughly. At this point, the concrete should have a clean, freshlyetched appearance. Clean up washings and dispose of them legally. Do not pour them down the drain.
Allow to dry, sweep surface to remove any dust & debris prior to coating.
Extremely porous surfaces – Unpainted cement: remove dust, dirt, loose granules, and friable and powdery material with a high-pressure water jet or by scrubbing with a hard bristle brush and water. Allow surface to dry. Apply undiluted Ultimate Bonding Liquid (refer to technical data sheet for application
details). Allow to dry for at least 16 Hours at 25°C before overcoating with
Tennis Court Paint. Overcoat before contamination of the surface can take place, within 48 hours.
Existing Tennis Courts
Ensure all surfaces are free from grease dust and debris & lightly abrade the surface to remove all loose coatings then patch prime all exposed steel
Sweep surface to remove any dust & debris prior to coating
