How Do I Apply Scratchcote?
The first step to applying ScratchCote is ensuring you have all the necessary equipment. This should be:
- Flat Blade Squeegee
- Gaffer Tape
- Power Drill Mixer
- Spectrum ScratchCote Kit
- Spectrum Ultraclean
Ensure the surface is sound, clean and free from grease, oil, rust, scale, dirt, or any other soiling that might affect adhesion.
Use Meon Gaffer Tape to mask out application area. Ensure surrounding areas are protected from splashes or over-runs.
Open the outer carton and remove the tin of resin. Replace lid and shake bucket gently to loosen the filler product.
Do not apply when the air or surface temperature is below 5°C or when rain, mist, fog, or snow is imminent.
Open the resin and add directly to the filler, mixing continuously as the resin is poured. Mix for approximately 3 minutes with a low-speed mixing drill until thoroughly mixed.
Pour out the mixed product onto designated area and spread around evenly with a flat squeegee to create a level and even finish.
When complete use Meon Ultraclean to clean uncured ScratchCote from tools and equipment.
