Surfaces must be free from weeds, standing water, dust, dirt, loose material and oil spillage. Any potholes should be patched and any cracks should be filled with Colas Leoseal R or a Leoseal R and sand mortar mixture.
Leochip VLS can be poured from a watering can and spread by hand using an ordinary notched rubber bladed squeegee or sprayed through a specially adapted nozzle.
It should be applied at a spread rate of 1.3 to 1.8l/ m² depending upon the texture and porosity of the surface and choice of chipping size (2.8/6.3 Gc 85/20f1 chippings are recommended).
Leochip VLS should be applied in temperatures >10°C and dry conditions should prevail for at least 12 hours after application.
