The SAFTI-TRAX™ Plastic Sheet

DETECTABLE WARNING SYSTEM

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

The SAFTI-TRAX™ Plastic Sheet Detectable Warning System contains the following:

  1. DURABAK 18™ totally flexible one-step slip-resistant coating
  2. Accelerator packets (if required)
  3. COTE-L's special stipple rollers
  4. Truncated rubber domes attached to 2'x2' plastic sheets in A.D.A. specified matrix.

In addition, you will need:

  1. Xylene, for cleaning surface and for thinning of DURABAK™, if necessary
  2. Heavy duty rubber gloves
  3. Masking tape -- preferably duct tape
  4. Paint roller pan
  5. Recommended electric drill with paint mixer attachment

Procedure
Please read all instructions carefully before proceeding.

  1. Clean surface as specified in DURABAK™ instructions. New concrete should be fully cured and cleaned with a concrete cleaner. (See new concrete instructions.) Remove all residue. Old concrete should be cleaned with Muriatic Acid or a citric cleaner or scarifying machine. Again, remove all residue. Surface should then be thoroughly dried. Old or new concrete should be wiped finally with Xylene immediately before the first coat of DURABAK™ is applied. The Xylene should be allowed to evaporate.
  2. Lay out SAFTI-TRAX™ plastic sheets with truncated domes for sizing. Be sure to leave white paper release sheet in place underneath domes. If required, cut sheets to size with scissors. When more than one sheet is to be installed in a single area, be sure to line up the alternating rows of domes correctly.
  3. Mask off area to be covered by SAFTI-TRAX™
  4. Place plastic sheet with domes still attached outside work area.
  5. If supplied with kit, add packet or can of accelerator to quart or gallon of DURABAK™ and mix can thoroughly and frequently, preferably with an electric mixer. Apply one coat of DURABAK™ onto masked-off area. Check packing slip and accelerator container to make sure proper amount goes into quart or gallon. Do not coat an area larger than one sheet at a time as the domes will need to be placed on wet DURABAK™ within 10 minutes (see #7).
    NOTE: After each coat, close can tightly. Lightly wet stipple roller with Xylene and cover with plastic bag so roller will not dry out. If application is by spray gun, clean spray gun between coats with Xylene.
  6. Lift plastic sheets (with domes attached) and remove the white, bottom release sheet from SAFTI-TRAX™ PLASTIC SHEET.
  7. While the DURABAK™ is still wet (within 10 minutes of application), lay domes (with top plastic sheet still attached) in place on wet surface. Without removing plas- tic sheet, lightly press domes down with a small flat board to ensure that the bottom of all the domes are making contact with the wet DURABAK™. If surface is uneven, you may need to remove and press some individual domes down by hand.
  8. After the plastic sheets are in place, slice the sheets in straight lines with a razor cutter between every two rows to allow the air to circulate between the domes and to enable the DURABAK™ to dry faster.
  9. Do not remove plastic sheets from the domes for two to three hours or more, until the domes are solidly attached to the DURABAK™ and the DURABAK™ is dry. Lighter colors, such as Safety Yellow, may require more time to dry, depending on climactic conditions.
  10. Gently and slowly peel off top plastic sheet parallel to surface, holding the individual domes down with one hand while peeling the sheet back with the other, being careful not to dislodge domes. If a dome should become dislodged, apply some DURABAK™ to the bottom of the dome and press firmly back into place. Let dry.
  11. Apply 2nd coat of DURABAK™ over truncated domes and entire masked-off surface, making sure DURABAK™ covers the outside base of the domes. Roll in several different directions to ensure complete coverage.
  12. When the 2nd coat of DURABAK™ has become touch dry, repeat step 11 with two more coats, allowing each coat to dry to the touch before applying the next one.
    NOTE: The completed system will have one base coat and three top coats.
  13. Slowly remove masking tape and let SAFTI-TRAX™ dry. If tape is not removed promptly and is sticking to the DURABAK™ , cut along edge with a razor knife and then remove tape.
  14. SAFTI-TRAX™ surface can be walked on in 6 to 12 hours in conditions of average humidity. For special circumstances, average walking time may be able to be reduced. For information, contact authorized SAFTI-TRAX™ representative.
