A-7000 System Summary
A-7000 Americrete Stamp Description
This specification and the products outlined below are specifically designed for installing Americrete’s ¼” Stamp System. Stamp texturing tools used with the A-700 Stamp Crete to produce designs and textures at various thicknesses over structurally sound concrete.
- A-7000 stamp Crete system is easy to apply. All the contractor has to do is add water and pigment to the pre blended A-700 stamp material. Special chemicals and polymers have added at our blending facility so no extra chemicals are needed. This simplicity guarantees the ease of application every time.
It is imperative that the structure that is to be repaired or overlaid be structurally sound. Deteriorated, cracked or spalled concrete should be repaired. Americrete recommends that all structural concrete substrates be tested for structural integrity and chemical contamination prior to application of any surfacing materials.
Preparation of surface
Americrete will bond to properly cleaned and porous concrete surfaces. Mechanical or chemical abrasion may be necessary in order for Americrete to properly adhere to the surface. See Specification A-2000
Existing Coated Floors
All existing coatings, sealers, curing agents and other foreign materials must be removed by shot blast equipment in order to reveal clean concrete.
The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all contamination by scrubbing the surface with A-100 Degreaser. Broom A-100 Degreaser evenly over the entire surface. Allow the degreaser to remain on the surface for approximately 30 minutes. Power wash surface with a 3000 to 4000 psi machine.
Chalking, weak or freeze-thaw damaged concrete must be treated to increase concrete strength and reduce vapor transmission. The top surface should be removed and then treated with two coats of A-200 Concrete Prep and Seal or two coats of A-2250 Concrete Penetrating Sealer (C.P.S). Spray evenly to saturate the surface, but do not allow the material to puddle. Allow to dry 30 to 45 minutes and rinse with water and a broom to remove any residue.
A-6300 penetrating Vapor seal epoxy is also used to control moisture vapor, especially with concrete on grade with high alkali and moisture problem. Refer to technical data sheet A-6300.
Small repairs and cracks require pre-filling. Large spalls and cracks should be pre-filled prior to resurfacing using Americrete Crack Repair Procedure. See Specification number A-17,000 for complete installation instructions.Americrete does not guarantee that the cracks will not appear at a later date.
Low areas, surface voids and other irregularities that cannot be repaired using a thin coat application may be repaired using this leveling procedure prior to resurfacing. Prime surface with A-375.Apply A-600 Concrete Resurfacer mixed with 6 to 6 1/2 quarts of water per bag, for any areas from 1/8” or 3/8”. For deeper areas, other mixing ratios with larger aggregate are required.
