General application guidelines and other dry guff.

  1. To increase Ultra-BondFirst penetration qualities, wash down substrate with water.
  2. Never mix any product, except Ultra-Products, into material. Never thin with water or other chemicals.
  3. Always shake or stir Ultra-Products before and during application.
  4. Ultra-BondFirst dries as a clear membrane. Mix 10% Ultra-Coat into Ultra-BondFirst to help with visibility of application and to give better covering property.
  5. Where Ultra-BondFirst doesn't penetrate a surface, scrub or sand Ultra-BondFirst into substrate while still wet using a wire brush or 40 grit sandpaper.
  6. Very smooth surfaces or some porous surfaces might require a second coat of Ultra-BondFirst. Always sand the surface before applying Ultra-BondFirst. Re-sanding or scrubbing with Ultra-BondFirst to penetrate the surface is a golden rule.
  7. After applying Ultra-BondFirst, allow to dry fully and ensure that Ultralast top coats are applied within twelve (12) hours of Ultra-BondFirst drying.
  8. Always apply at least two (2) coats of the chosed Ultralast top coat.
  9. If Ultra-Super Seal is used, apply three (3) coats and cover with two (2) coats of Ultra-Coat.
  10. Seal all vertical walls next to concrete roofs at least 200/300 mm. high to stop moisture creeping underneath sealed surface.
  11. Stains can be made using Ultra-Coat and Ultra-Clear. Ultra-Coat 10% and 90% Ultra-Clear as standard, mixture should not exceed 50/50 ratio.
  12. Expanding and contracting cracks must be sealed using a membrane. Ensure that the membrane has enough play to take up movement of both surfaces in climatic change. Dry season will increase crack size and wet season decrease size.
  13. Small cracks can be filled with cement, river sand and Ultra-BondFirst mixture. Follow cement manufacturer's specifications but replace water with Ultra-BondFirst. Ultra-BondFirst increases the elasticity of the dried product.
  14. Where material with different expansion and contraction properties join, a membrane must be used. Ensure that the membrane is saturated with Ultra-BondFirst and Ultra-Coat.
  15. Roofs should not be painted when the galvanized iron is hot or air bubbles will occur. Paint in the morning and afternoon or cool hours of the day.
  16. Marine substrates must be sandblasted, and then Ultra-BondFirst applied before at least three (3) coats of Ultra-Coat is used.
  17. Ultra-NuPave AS needs to be chemically dry before anything is placed onto the surface, which usually requires a minimum of 24 hours and 7 days to fully Cure.
  18. Directional lines and artwork should be applied before Ultra-Clear is applied as final coat. If alterations are needed, a protective coating of Ultra-Clear must be applied after thorough cleaning.
  19. Clean all brushes, rollers or spray guns with water. Warm water and soap can also be used.
  20. If you have any doubts or unusual applications contact a friendly Ultralast product specialist.
WALLS

Plaster (old and new), brick and just about any previously painted surface. Walls to be painted should be free from all dirt, oils, fat, and flaking or peeling paints.Sand down all surfaces, use crack filler to level surfaces. Crack filler can be mixed with Ultra-BondFirst to give it more elasticity.Enamel to be sanded down until "sheen" is gone.Plastered walls can be painted as soon as "teardrop" is gone. Apply Ultra-BondFirst primer one
(1) coat. 10% Ultra-Coat can be mixed with Ultra-BondFirst to increase opacity / coverage if desired.Where algae, effloresce or lime bloom occurs Ultra-Clean must be used.
