Application instructions

After the CSH has been applied to the concrete, floated, trowelled and tested for firmness, RA should be applied after being thoroughly hand mixed in its container.

RA should be gently cast onto the concrete surface; do not cast over long distances as it will become airborne. Do not over apply – only a very thin layer is needed, sufficient has been applied when the CSH colour is masked by the colour of the RA. When the area to be printed has been covered with RA, the first imprinting mat can be placed

Approximate coverage

6m2 to 7m2 per kg.
