When using one of our bonding compounds for concrete, it is crucial to properly prepare the surface. Now, this may differ from product to product. So it is important to review the instructions for the particular item. However, there are some common aspects that we can go over to ensure you properly prepare the surface for bonding.
Why is it important? Well, contaminants, such as oil, grease, tar, asphalt, paint, wax, curing compounds and surface impregnants, such as linseed oil are present on any older concrete surface. Removing them ensures a firmer bond. Any loose of weak concrete should also be removed.
If you are bonding to asphalt, this process slightly differs. When you do, the asphalt surface should be more rough, so that the clean aggregate is exposed.
For any bonding job, DO NOT apply the epoxy adhesive in the rain or if there is still standing water. Here are some of the common ways to prepare a surface:
Depending on the type of surface you are cleaning, you will need to select the preparation method that is best for it. Getting the surface ready is a key step in the process and ensures a stronger bond that lasts longer.
