conjunction with fillers and fine aggregate and requires the addition of Epoxy.com Product #695 MMA
hardener to start the hardening process. The amount of hardener must be adjusted
to the respective surface temperature (see table). At temperatures below 40°F, Accelerator 101 must be
used in addition to the amount of hardener used at the 40°F level (about ½ oz by vol./gal. @ 32°F up to 2.0 oz by
vol./gal. @ -20°F).

Typical Slurry/Topping Formula

slurry. Coverage is:

3/32 inch 30 sq ft
1/8 inch 22-23 sq ft
3/16 inch 15.0 sq ft
1/4 inch 11.3 sq ft

The fresh slurry coat must be broadcast to excess with a wearing coarse of
aggregate. Rates will vary from 0.25-1.25#/sq ft depending on type and size of aggregate. It is recommended to
broadcast 16-30 mesh aggregate. Do not use broadcast aggregate smaller than 30 mesh. Aggregate may be
natural or colored quartz, sand, aluminum oxide, emery, etc.

Epoxy.com Product #692  systems must be top coated, protected, or sealed with Epoxy.com
Product #693 Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Top Coating. These can be either
