English term or phrase:Tooth adn suction
Surfaces must alsohave an open capillary system to provide "tooth and suction" for the treatment.
Note: refers to admix treatment added to concrecte surfaces to waterproof it. I have an idea but would like to feel reassured.
Explanation: La superficie debe de tener un sistema de porosidad dentada para absorber el tratamiento.
tooth-(Other than the obvious)-To furnish (a tool, for example) with teeth. To make a jagged edge on.
jagged-Dentado, recortado de un modo desigual.
Priming: Some concrete surfaces are so dense that adhesion of primers is adversely affected. Before priming, such surfaces should be acid washed, lightly sandblasted, or dry rubbed with coarse grit abrasive stones, until the glaze is removed and "tooth" and suction for the primer are provided. Apply one coat of a water based primer sealer (DS700 or equal) over properly treated concrete or masonry surface. http://www.twidursystem.com/ds4000.htm
