The specified Flexipave® coating for the required layer is mixed on site (with water and silica sand 0.1.-0.3mm according to mix ratios listed). Each coat is applied to the prepared surface (see surface preparations) according to the Terraco Flexipave® Category specification and site specific method statement. The coating is spread and levelled by squeegee. The number of coats per layer and total consumptions for the 3 pace Categories Medium Slow (category 2) Medium (category 3) and Fast (category 4) are listed on the tables below.
