  5. Use Stellar Materials approved nozzle and pump set.
  6. Check that equipment is clean and in proper working condition.

  2. When applicable, mix dry material with the appropriate amount of liquid activator in a
    pan or paddle type mixer to pre-dampen.

Placing

  1. At the nozzle, adjust liquid activator to obtain the proper wet-to-dry ratio.
  2. Nozzle should be 3-4 feet (1 meter) from the substrate.
