Shield Kote (On Grade)
VAPOR SHIELD: Rough Slab Finish: 75 – 200 sq. ft/gal. Dense and Smooth Finish: 150 – 200 sq. ft/gal.
POND KOTE: Thickness: Coverage per Bag
1/6” = 120 sq. ft. per bag.
1/8” = 60 sq. ft. per bag.
1/4” = 30 sq. ft. per bag. (Should be done in (2) 1/8” layers).
Substrate, weather, and workmanship will cause coverage rates to vary.
Application & Use:
Refer to the Vapor Shield installation sheet for full detailed instructions.
Vapor Shield may be applied as a cure and seal, as soon as the concrete bleed water flashes off. When properly installed, applications of this sealer reduces wait time to apply coatings to an average of 5 days. Always check surface for excessive moisture content before applying coatings. For Vapor Shield to work properly pores of the concrete substrate must be opened for proper penetration.
Horizontal Surfaces: The surface being treated with Vapor Shield should be
pre-dampened with water using a very light mist prior to application of the Vapor
Shield sealer. After the first coat has soaked in, immediately apply the second coat
followed by a light mist of water. Avoid over-application and puddling on horizontal
surfaces. Excess unreacted Vapor Shield will leave white crystals on concrete. Brush
or broom excess material to more porous areas.
Vertical Surfaces: Apply from top to bottom to point of refusal. Apply sealer in two even coats using a low pressure sprayer. After the first coat has soaked in, immediately apply the second coat. Apply only as much material as the surface will readily absorb. Areas that absorb sealer at a faster rate will require additional coats. After the final coat of sealer is dry, spray a light mist of water over the treated area. After the first water mist is dry to touch, apply a second water mist.
POND KOTE Mixing/Application:
Refer to Multicoat’s Pond Kote Instruction sheet for full detailed instructions.
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 below. Dampen substrate with water before application. 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. Substrate must have a semi-rough profile for proper adhesion of the Pond Kote.
