Installation Instructions

SURFACE APPLIED RediMat™ 1. After ensuring “General Conditions”(above) have been met, and surface has been properly cleaned, place mat(s) in desired final position. If mats are placed side by side, leave a 1/8 in. gap between them.
SURFACE APPLIED RediMat™ 2. While standing on the mat to prevent movement, remove one section of the paper backing.
SURFACE APPLIED RediMat™ 3. Roll and press the exposed portion onto the surface. While standing on the attached end,remove the remaining sections of the backing and press and roll onto the surface.
SURFACE APPLIED RediMat™ 4. To insure a secure bond is achieved, roll the mat both lengthwise, widthwise and most importantly along the edges, with the handheld RediMat™ Roller. For mats with an offset pattern, hold the roller at a 45° angle and use the outer roller pad to roll between the domes diagonally from front to rear and along the edges.
SURFACE APPLIED RediMat™ 5. Using the drill and a 5/32 in. masonry bit, drill through the pre-drilled holes into the concrete to a depth of 1 1/4 in. If the mats are trimmed so a predrilled hole is removed, a new hole must be drilled in the mat using a 3/8 in. standard drill bit, 2 in. from the side edge and 1 in. from the beveled edge.
SURFACE APPLIED RediMat™ 6. Be sure the screw and the matching washers are oriented so the neck of the screw falls into the inside taper of the washer. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, fasten the screws into the drilled holes. The proper screw tightness will allow a slight finger twist of the washer. Do not overtighten.
SURFACE APPLIED RediMat™ 7. Cut the nozzle of the sealant tube at the 1/4 in. mark. Apply a smooth, thin bead of sealer around the perimeter (sealer is not required between adjoining mats). Mats are ready for immediate use once installation is completed and edge sealant has dried to the touch. Tip: To make the edge sealer dry faster, mist with water.
