Yes, BallistiX can be applied to many surfaces including porous ones such as concrete with the help of our BallistiX Primer.

Squire will provide a very glossy finish while NCO will produce a slightly more muted yet brand new look to your surface. 

Once mixed, Squire can last up to 6 days but, if refrigerated, its lifespan can be extended to around 1 month. NCO must be used within 6 hours of mixing. 

BallistiX expiration can be detected by gelling of the product.

If you have leftover BallistiX after finishing an application, return the mixture back into the bottle. Do not attempt to reuse if the solution has started to gel. 

BallistiX can have a back-to-service curing time of only 4 hours. However, this time will increase in lower temperatures.

BallistiX coatings require only one application. A single coat is all that is required for your perfect finish.

Flow Agent should be added at 10% of the total volume of the solution.

We do not provide training videos, however, there are many videos on the BallistiX Facebook page demonstrating the correct application method. One of these can be viewed using the link below.

While it is possible to perform an application of BallistiX on your own, it is far more manageable with a helping hand. On porous applications, when BallistiX Primer is used, it will be a three-person job. It is also recommended that all beginners in this industry practice before applying for a customer.

BallistiX Primer will need to be applied 8 minutes before your topcoat. This short time window is the reason behind the additional third person. Worker 1 will begin to apply Primer and then begin a timer. Once this timer hits 8 minutes, workers 2 and 3 can begin following in worker 1’s footsteps with the topcoat sprayer and microfibre mop.

The coverage rate for BallistiX will depend on the surface that it is being applied to, for example on epoxy, you will get around 1200 sq ft per gallon. If laying over concrete or other porous substrates it could be as low as 800 sq ft per gallon, depending on porosity.
