Surface Preparation
Surface Preparation is the most critical portion of any successful resinous flooring system application. Remove all curing compounds, sealers, and any other foreign substances from joints. Immediately prior to applying KEY RESIN 783, remove all water and dust from all surfaces with an oil free air blast. Work must be performed by trained or experienced contractors or maintenance personnel. The KEY RESIN COMPANY service department is pleased to answer any questions.
Mixing & Installation
KEY RESIN 783 is mixed by combining equal parts by volume of Part A and Part B. Pre-mix each component prior to combining. Mix combination with a low speed drill for a minimum of three minutes.

KEY RESIN 783 can be poured from a suitable container or applied with a caulking gun. Two passes may be required, as pourable materials have a tendency to dish out. The filled joint MUST be flush with the floor. For complete installation instructions, contact your Key Representative or Key Resin Company's Technical Service.
Clean UpClean skin with soap and water. Tools and equipment should be cleaned with xylene or lacquer thinner before KEY RESIN 783 gels.
Availability

Maintenance
KEY RESIN 783 is typically installed as a joint material for Key Flooring Systems. However, if needed, KEY RESIN 783 is easily cleaned with neutral soaps or detergents. Routine mechanical scrubbing is recommended for all surfaces having a non-skid texture.
