Pyrocrete 40 is applied using the wet method, with a worm gear machine. To be able to carry out the application we must prepare the surface and put mesh in place if the constructive design so requires.

First of all, we must check that the surface is free of oil, grease, dust or any other substance that could prevent the correct adherence of the system. After checking the surface, a primer is used if required. No primer is required for application on galvanized steel, but if required, contact the technical department to use a primer that is compatible.

Depending on the thickness of application, the product will be sprayed in one or more layers, not exceeding 12.5 mm for the first layer. The time between layers should be between 2 and 24 hours.

The Pyrocrete 40 mortar can be finished with paint by applying two coats of Carboguard 1340 plus the subsequent application of an additional coat of Carbothane 134 Series.
