How to use Zembond
1. Surface Preparation / Paghahanda ng paglalagyan
The surface must be structurally stable & level. Concrete surface must be clean & free from contaminants such as dirt, dust, loose materials, oils & chemicals. If needed, acid etch the surface to be plastered (e.g marble or granolithic floors). For wall applications, remove flaking paint from the substrate using paint remover, or by scraping it off the wall. Slightly dampen concrete surface before application.
Shake well before use.
