Surface Preparation
Surface Preparation is the most critical portion of any successful resinous flooring system application. All substrates must be properly prepared as outlined in KEY RESIN COMPANY’S TECHNICAL BULLETIN 1. Work must be performed by trained or experienced contractors or maintenance personnel. The KEY RESIN COMPANY service department is pleased to answer any questions.
Installation
KEY LUSTER METALLIC is normally applied as a three or four coat system.

KEY RESIN 502 EPOXY PRIMER or KEY RESIN 535 WATER EMULSION FINISH are used to prime the surface.

KEY LUSTER METALLIC is applied in two coats spreading with a flat trowel at 100-125 square feet per gallon on each coat. The second coat is sprayed lightly with a dispersing agent to distress the surface. A seal coat of Key urethane or epoxy will provide excellent wear and abrasion.
Clean UpClean skin with soap and water. Tools and equipment should be cleaned with xylene or lacquer thinner.

Availability
Key Resins are available throughout the United States, Canada, and a number of other countries. Contact the KEY REPRESENTATIVE in your area for details.
Maintenance
After completing the application of KEY LUSTER METALLIC, the installer should provide the owner with maintenance instructions. If floors become slippery due to animal fats, oil, grease, or soap film, clean and rinse thoroughly.

KEY LUSTER METALLIC is easily cleaned with neutral soaps or detergents. Routine mechanical scrubbing is recommended for all surfaces having a non-skid texture. Waxing is optional. Long periods of heavy traffic may cause wear patterns necessitating a maintenance application of a finish coat.
