MASONRY SURFACES

Pressure Cleaning

  1. Pressure clean all surfaces to be painted with a minimum of 2500 psi.
  2. Checked or peeling areas must be pressure cleaned using a rotating zero tip attachment, until all loose paint and scale is removed.
  3. Apply Clorox or chlorine diluted 5:1 or 10:1, respectively, to all previously mildewed surfaces.
  4. Thoroughly rinse all surfaces to remove chlorine and remaining debris.

Patching, Caulking, and Feather Edging

  1. After pressure cleaning procedures are complete allow surfaces a minimum of 24 hours dry time before patching and caulking.
  2. Patch all hairline cracks and caulk any seams with Acrylux 100% acrylic caulk or masonry patch (see crack repair detail for gap width guidelines).
  3. Scrape all areas where paint has peeled until all remaining paint is well adhered.
  4. All areas where paint has peeled (leaving a slight ridge) must be feathered with Acrylux brush grade masonry patch.
  5. Repair larger seams or cracks with NP1 urethane sealant (or equivalent). See crack repair detail for guidelines.

Priming

  1. After the patching and caulking procedures are complete, allow all products to dry for the recommended periods.
  2. Apply one coat of AC64 Sealer to all masonry surfaces. Sealer must be applied so that complete coverage is achieved.
  3. Apply one coat of XIM 400W rust inhibitive primer to all steel railings.
  4. Primer may be applied by brush, roller, or spray. Primer should be applied uniformly so that complete coverage is achieved.

Painting

  1. Apply two finish coats of Acrylux 100% Acrylic Exterior Premium to all primed surfaces. Paint must be applied at a rate of 200 ft²/gal as to achieve 5 wet mils. Paint may be applied wet on wet by spray and back-roll and re-spray.

CRACK PREPARATION AND REPAIR SPECIFICATIONS

A. Gap widths up to 1/64”: Repair cracks using Acrylux fibrated elastomeric patching compound. Patch must overlap cracks by at least ½” on both sides, on top and on the bottom. Patch must be brushed on at a minimum of 10 mils.

B. Gap widths up to 1/16”: Grind open crack surface mechanically and caulk using Acrylux elastomeric caulk. Inject caulk by using tubes and apply finger pressure to achieve proper penetration.

C. Gap widths up to 1/8”: Grind open crack mechanically and caulk using a one-part urethane sealant. Inject sealant by using tubes and apply finger pressure to achieve proper penetration.

D. Gap widths up to ¼”: Grind open crack mechanically and insert appropriate sized backer-rod. Caulk using one-part urethane sealant as described in Section C.
