Fish Hatchery System
Multicoat’s Hatchery Restoration System is comprised of a super bonding, polymer modified cementitious coating that is field mixed with potable water and is designed to restore the function and appearance of old concrete. Cured product seals and forms a protective coating over concrete surfaces which are submerged underwater. The longer the product is submerged the tighter the polymers bond. Specifically designed for application to fish ponds and hatcheries.
A primer coat of VAPOR SHIELD should be applied prior to POND KOTE application. See the Multicoat “Shield Kote” system.

POND KOTE: Thickness:
Coverage per Bag
1/16” 120 sq. ft. per bag.
1/8” 60 sq. ft. per bag
1/4” 30 sq. ft. per bag. (when 1/4″ is desired, two 1/8″ layers are to be applied)
Substrate, weather, and workmanship will cause coverage rates to vary.
Application & Use:
SURFACE PREPARATION: Substrate must be structurally sound and free from grease, oil, dirt, dust, sealers, water repellents and other foreign materials which may interfere with proper bonding. Shot Blasting, sand blasting, or water blasting may be necessary over some surfaces to achieve proper bonding. On concrete block walls, all head and bed joints must be free of holes and finished flush with block substrate. For new poured in place walls, a water-based form release should be used. If an oil base form release must be used the wall must be scrubbed with tri sodium phosphate (TSP), power washed and rinsed.
Horizontal cracks should be treated with Multicoat’s Speed Bond Crack Repair or Speed Mix 2000. Fill any voids, vertical cracks or large cracks with Multicoat’s Speed Mix 2000.
APPLICATION: Use a 1/2” drill and Multicoat Cage Mixer to mix material. Mix 1-3/4 to 2 gallon of clean potable water to one 65-lb bag of POND KOTE until well blended and lump free. Application on walls can be by spray and trowel, floor can be by broom or squeegee. Apply at coverage rates listed above. Dampen substrate with water before application. Allow material to dry 7 to 10 days prior to filling with water. After filling, run circulation pumps/filters followed by a light brushing to remove any surface containments prior to adding fish. Longer dry time will be required for interior applications.
Do not bridge expansion or control joints with the POND KOTE. All expansion or control joints must be cut and cleaned out and filled with approved caulking material.
