Pool Products


One-Step BOND-KOTE® is a unique super polymer-modified one-part cementitious coating that incorporates dry resin technology, eliminating the need for liquid additives. One-Step BOND-KOTE is an ideal substrate to mechanically bond pool plaster over existing or concrete plaster finishes.

Product Details


All materials and surfaces to be coated should remain above 50F° / 4.4°C (fifty degrees Fahrenheit / 4.4 degrees Celsius) or below 120°F / 48°C (120 degrees Fahrenheit / 48 degrees Celsius) 24 hours prior and 72 hours after placement. Do not apply in rain or extremely high humidity. Plaster should be applied to One-Step BOND-KOTE® within fourteen (14) days or re-apply One-Step BOND-KOTE®. DO NOT USE OVER PAINTED, VINYL, PLASTIC, FIBERGLASS, OR SEALED FINISHES.


WARNING — EYE IRRITANT CONTAINS PORTLAND CEMENT. Product is alkaline on contact with water. Use paddle for mixing to avoid splashing into eyes or contact with skin. During mixing or application avoid contact with eyes. In case of such contact, flood eyes repeatedly with water and CALL A PHYSICIAN. Wash thoroughly after handling and before smoking or eating. Do not take internally. CONTAINS FREE SILICA — DO NOT BREATHE DUST. Prolonged exposure to dust may cause delayed lung disease (Silicosis). This product may expose you to chemicals, including silica, which the State of California recognizes as a cause of cancer. For more information, visit the Proposition 65 Warnings Website (www.P65Warnings.ca.gov). Use NIOSH approved masks at all times to handle silica dust. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.


Check completely for hollow areas and remove all loose plaster. Remove all mildew, algae, fungus, and rust by either sandblasting or with an acid wash which must be followed by neutralization with soda ash. If the surface is unusually soft, painted, peeling or flaking, then the surface must be heavily sanded or water blasted. Regardless of the method used, thoroughly wash down with a “jet nozzle” hose and let the pool drain until there is no standing water present. Note: Special attention is required on pools below the water table and or leaking. Substrates should be prepared in a manner that leaves the CSP concrete surface profile rough and porous enough to ensure that Bond Kote can achieve a good chemical and mechanical bond to the substrate. Well prepared surfaces shall have the ability to absorb water prior to the application of Bond Kote.


One-Step BOND-KOTE® should be added to approximately six (6) to 6.5 quartz (5.7 to 6.1 L) of clean potable water per 65 lbs. Slowly add the powder to water and continue mixing for two (2) to four (4) minutes until One-Step BOND-KOTE® is mixed to a smooth batter-like consistency. Allow mixture to slake for five (5) minutes, then remix thoroughly.


To check the consistency of material, apply One-Step BOND-KOTE® with 1-1/4” nap roller onto a vertical test area. Once BOND-KOTE® is mixed to correct consistency, apply immediately; do not let material stand unused. Apply mixed One-Step BOND-KOTE® with 1-¼” nap roller to steps at the shallow end of the pool and let material set for approximately one (1) minute; then rough up surface to the desired finish with a clean textured roller as done in the test area. Continue this same process until the entire pool surface is covered to a uniform thickness ensuring the substrate does not show through the One-Step BOND-KOTE®. The wet membrane thickness needs to be at least 80 mil .08 (2.023mm). While applying One-Step BOND-KOTE®, check the depth of the coating occasionally with a wet film thickness gauge.


The minimum cure is reached in six (6) hours; setting and drying time may vary according to atmospheric conditions. For best results wait 24 hours before plastering.


Mist One-Step BOND-KOTE® with clean cool water prior to plastering to permit proper hydration. Make sure BOND-KOTE is free of any foreign matter before plastering.


One 65 lb bag covers 200-250 square feet of surface area, up to 350 sq. ft. when spray applied.


Clean hands, tools, and containers with warm soapy water. Note: use new roller with each application.


One-Step BOND-KOTE® lifetime will be greatly enhanced through proper and regular maintenance. est and record water chemistry values once a week, and adjust as indicated per water-balance table recommendations. Brush the entire pool, walls, and floor weekly. Remove any debris and foreign materials immediately to prevent staining. Check and maintain filter, pump motor, and skimmer baskets to maintain proper flow and filtering action. If unable to perform regular weekly maintenance, the services of a qualified licensed pool service professional should be obtained.
