SLOWING NEO WITH MATRIX™ RETARDER
You can extend the working time of NEO by adding a very small amount of Matrix™ Retarder to the mix.
Step 1: Add 5 g of Matrix™ Retarder to 240 g of room temperature water to create a solution. Mix until powder is fully dissolved. This can be stored for future use. Retarder solution must be pre-mixed before using after storage.
Step 2: Mix Part A and B together until powder is fully integrated, about 1 min.
Step 3: Add Retarder solution while mixing.
Step 4: Continue to drill mix for another 30 seconds. Important: Excessive mixing can shorten the pot life.
