Hind Actcolor is recommended to be used on concrete floor which needs to be stain resistant, chemical resistant. It is ideal for concrete courtyards in Real Estate Project, Industrial floors in Car manufacturing factory, Pharmaceutical factory, Food product manufacturing unit, Beverage/Bottling Plants, Dam Power House floors etc. etc. It offers High performance-high solids-high pigment loading-Fast drying. It conforms to ASTM D 870 for blistering, adhesion and discoloration. Passes ASTM D 2795 standards for gasoline and motor oil resistance. It also conforms to abrasion resistance standard as per ASTM D 4060.
♠ Out performs epoxies, urethanes and acrylic floor coating in durability, adhesion and low maintenance cost.
♠ Excellent bonding and chemically reacts with concrete forming a durable insoluble bond with the substrate that does not peel, flake or delaminate.
♠ Creates a stronger, more impenetrable and better looking finish that is dust proof, resistant to staining and deterioration.
♠ Produces a tough trafficable surface for high abuse areas that are subject to light trafficking in 2 hours.
♠ Reduces maintenance, cleaning costs and costly repairs. Only damp mop, machine scrub or recoating is required.
♠ Environmentally friendly, Low VOC content, Non toxic, Non-flammable, Easy water cleanup and Fast-curing.
♠ Maximum performance may take up to 14 days to develop, depending on temperature and humidity. Do not allow standing water to be left on the surface.

Smooth –troweled concrete treated with Hind Actcolor coating was tested for stain resistance from various substances. These compounds were checked at regular intervals upto 24 hours to determine the amount of penetration/staining after checking with a non-abrasive, neutral pH cleaner. After cleaning , the stain was evaluated according to the following scale with ‘0’ indicating no change in the appearance of the stain and ‘10’ indicating the stain was completely removed.
|SUBSTANCES||30 min||60 mins||90 mins||24 hours|

Note: This information contained herein, is to the best our knowledge and belief, accurate and is to be used as a guide to product selection. However, since the conditions of handling, installation and use are beyond our control, we make no guarantee of results.
Special conditions for application: Horizontal masonry & concrete substrate only. Keep dry for 24 hours after installation. Do not allow standing water to dwell on surface for 7 days. do not allow traffic until protective coating surface is completely dry, generally 30 – 60 minutes under typical interior conditions.
APPLICATION PROCEDURES & INSTRUCTIONS
Substrate Preparation: Cement Concrete/Cementitious products
For long term placement create a rough surface profile using diamond grind about #180 for Clean and neutralization. The surface must be dry, free of surface containments and in sound condition. Grease and oil should be removed as per ASTM D 4258-83 and release agents should be removed as per ASTM D 425-88.
Refer to SPC-SP13/NACE No. 6 mechanical or chemical surface preparation methods for preparing concrete to suitable cleanliness for intended service. Surface preparation methods should impart sufficient surface profile for mechanical adhesion to occur. Ensure surface is thoroughly rinsed and dry prior to preparation and application. Uneven concrete substrate, scratches and cracks are to be repaired with polymer mortar to achieve the smoothness. Mask Areas that do not receive the coating topcoat finish and surface hardener is to be protected from over spray.
♠ Complete mixing is essential for good product performance. It is necessary to use a paint-mixing tool mounted on a drill motor or machine agitation (paint shaker) to mix this paint. Mix well and after mixing the coating to be applied immediately.
♠ Spray first coat and work in surface with stiff broom or scrubbing pad on a scrubbing machine.
STEPS FOR APPLICATION
At first concrete is to be poured mixed with surface hardener and allowed to cure for 28 days to achieve the targeted compressive strength. Secondly application of Hind Actcolor top to be done by rake attached sponge brush. Consumption varies from 0.03 ~ 0.04 Kg/m2 . More than 2-3 hours curing under 200 C make the surface ready for next coating stage. In case the application is done in high moisture environment ventilation must be provided to dry and curing of the coating. The second coat of Hind Actcolor to be applied by rake attached sponge brush and the consistency of the coated color to be ensured as like the first coat. Consumption varies from 0.025 ~ 0.03 Kg/m2 . After curing for 2-3 hours under the same conditions like the first coat the surface becomes ready for application of the Hind Actcolor Sealed coat. The application of the sealed coat is done by the same method and allowed to full cure. Consumption varies from 0.02 ~ 0.25 Kg/m2 . Finally the fully cured surface is polished properly by the floor polishing machine attached with scrubbing pad.
200 ~ 250 m2 / 18 kg ( 0.09kg/m2 ) depending on the porosity of the substrate and the finish.
Routine sweeping, mopping, washing and mechanical scrubbing of floor with water and neutral pH cleaners (if necessary) are recommended. Water only is sufficient for most environments.
Note: Do not use cleaners that are acidic or that have citrus(de-limonene) or Butyl compounds. Although Hind Actcolor, coating is chemically resistant and helps reduce staining, its application in specific chemical environments and some acidic concentrates, may etch the surface causing a residual stain. If unsure check with a conversant concrete technical representative. Regular maintenance and cleaning will help prolong surface shine. Wipe up any chemical spills as soon as possible. Always test adhesion and performance for suitability and desired results before application.

Hind Actcolor is an aqueous Lithium Silicate solution and alkaline in nature and may cause eye & skin irritation. Use hand gloves and goggles while applying the same. Avoid ingestion and prolonged skin contact. If contact with eyes occur wash immediately with clean water and seek medical advice. At the time of application workmen should be cautious because Hind Actcolor applied wet surfaces are slippery.
