Technical Guideline No. 310.2R-2013 Selecting and Specifying Concrete Surface Preparation for Sealers, Coatings, Polymer Overlays, and Concrete Repair
The following abstract is from ICRI’s website:
Summarizes the capabilities, operating requirements, and limitations of the various methods used to prepare concrete surfaces for the application of protective sealers, coatings, polymer overlays, and concrete repair. Benchmark profiles are included which provide visual standards for purposes of specification, application, and verification. In this updated version of the guideline you will find; surface retarders and handheld breakers have been added to the surface preparation methods; surface preparation methods have been updated; and a new appendix summarizes considerations for selecting surface preparation methods and describes various test methods used to evaluate the prepared surface. Plus, concrete surface profile (CSP) 10 has been added to reflect a more aggressive CSP used for concrete repair.
