Ultra-Top forms a protection coating, is easy to clean and maintain and is resistant to algae and mold growth.

Ultra-Top should be applied in dry conditions avoiding the presence of humidity or water coming from the surface to be coated or the substrate, whether at the time of application or subsequently.

Apply on dry, firm substrates, with a surface temperature of between 3 ºC above dew point, and an ambient temperature of at least 10 ºC.

Ultra-Top must be applied in thin layers, with a roller, brush or airless spray equipment (nozzle: 0.007” to 0.011”; nozzle tip pressure, 180 to 200 kg/m²). It can be thinned using pure xylene, up to 5% for applications with airless spray equipment. Do not apply on swimming pools or, in general, on surfaces that are subject to total immersion.

Ultra-Top can be applied as a non-slip finish as follows: Apply a thin layer of Ultra-Top and broadcast silica sand or aggregate. If required an additional layer of Ultra-Top can be applied on the aggregate to encapsulate the antislip system.

Yield

The yield of Ultra-Top varies depending on the layers applied, the type of substrate or the final use. If applied in thin layers, consumption is approximately 150~175 g/m²/layer.

Packaging

5kg tins – coverage 30 sqm approx.

Shelf Life
