BOND-KOTE™ is a specially formulated, two-part cementitious coating, designed to be used as an ideal substrate to mechanically bond pool plaster over existing plaster finishes.
All materials and surfaces to be coated should remain between 50°F (50 degrees Fahrenheit) / 10°C (ten degrees Celsius) or below 100° F (100 degrees Fahrenheit) / 38°C (38 degrees Celsius) 24-hours prior and 24-hours after installation. Do not apply in rain or extremely high humidity. Protect the “Liquid Resin” from freezing. Plaster should be applied to BOND-KOTE within fourteen (14) days or reapply BOND-KOTE.
SGM BOND-KOTE is formulated in units consisting of two (2) 65 lbs. bags of a factory blended dry cement mix and one (1) five-gallon container of liquid resin.
Check completely for hollow areas and remove all loose plaster. Remove all mildew, algae, fungus, and rust by either sandblasting or with an acid wash which must be followed by neutralization with soda ash. If the surface is unusually soft, painted, peeling or flaking, then the surface must be heavily sanded or water blasted. Regardless of the method used, thoroughly wash down with a “jet nozzle” hose and let the pool drain until there is no standing water present.
Make sure the “liquid resin” is mechanically agitated before use to disperse all settled solids. Then pour the “liquid resin” (five-gallons) into a clean mixing container with flat bottom. Add BOND-KOTE (two 65 lbs. bags) while continuously mixing with a mechanical mixer. Continue mixing for two (2) to four (4) minutes until BOND-KOTE is completely dispersed. NEVER USE LESS THAN 115 LBS. OF DRY MIX PER FIVE-GALLONS OF LIQUID RESIN.
To check the consistency of material, apply BOND-KOTE with 1-¼” nap roller onto a vertical test area. Let material set for one (1) minute; then, using a clean textured roller, rough up surface to the desired finish. Material thickness can be adjusted by adding a small amount of “cement mix” if too thin or “liquid resin” if too thick. Adjust only one (1) time. DO NOT RE-TEMPER MIX. Once BOND-KOTE is mixed to correct consistency, apply immediately — do not let material stand unused. Apply the mixed BOND-KOTE with 1-¼” nap roller to steps at the shallow end of the pool and let material set for approximately one (1) minute; then, rough up the surface to the desired finish with a clean textured roller as done in the test area. Continue this same process with the wall areas and then proceed to the floor surface last. Starting at the deep end of the pool make sure the application is uniform in thickness and texture.
The minimum cure is reached in six (6) hours; setting and drying time may vary according to atmospheric conditions. For best results wait for 24-hours before plastering.
Mist BOND-KOTE with clean cool water prior to plastering to permit proper hydration. Make sure BOND-KOTE is free of any foreign matter before plastering.
One (1) unit covers 450—500 square feet of surface area.
Clean hands, tools, and containers with warm soapy water.
BOND-KOTE’s lifetime will be greatly enhanced through proper and regular maintenance. Test and record water chemistry values once a week, and adjust as indicated per water-balance table recommendations. Brush the entire pool, walls, and floor weekly. Remove any debris and foreign materials immediately to prevent staining. Check and maintain the filter, pump motor, and skimmer baskets to maintain proper flow and filtering action. If unable to perform regular weekly maintenance, the services of a qualified licensed pool service professional should be obtained.
