NXT AquaGuard requires two coats to ensure that the surface is 100% waterproof. Before application, the surface must be cleaned and dried, and joins should be re-enforced using Poly Fabric. The entire surface should then be primed with a suitable primer.
Two coats of NXT AquaGard should be applied using a brush, roller or airless spray unit with a 20-30 thou tip. Allow 4 hours drying time between coats, and up to 72 hours for a weatherproof finish.
