SECTION 8 FLAGSTAFF MONUMENT


1-1 DESCRIPTION: The work of this section consists of the
application of exterior stucco coatings to the base drum and
coquina steps of the Flagstaff Monument.

1-2 QUALITY ASSURANCE: American Society for testing and
Materials (ASTM); National Lime Association (NLA); Portland Cement
Association (PCA); and manufacturer's printed recommendations.

1-3 PRODUCT HANDLING: Deliver materials in original, unopened
containers with manufacturer's labels) intact and legible. Store
under suitable cover, off the ground, where directed and protect
from dampness. Handle and store lime and cement units in unbroken,
original manufacturer's packages.


PART 2: MATERIALS


A. Lime: ASTM C 207, Type S, high plasticity.

B. Portland Cement: ASTM C 150, Type I, tan.

C. Sand: ASTM C 144; salt free.

D. Water: Potable; salt free.

E. Latex Admixture; Nonreemulsifiable; ACRYL-60, Thoro System
Products, 4Iaaui, Florida, or equal.


PART 3: EXECUTION


3-1 PHYSICAL PROPERTIES: Match existing stucco as directed in
thickness, texture, pattern, color, and other relevant physical
properties.

3-2 STUCCO MIXES: All parts by volume. (Note, these mixtures are
subject to modification in consultation with the approval of the
Contracting Officer).

A. Scratch Coat: One part portland cement, two parts lime, six
parts light colored coarse sand, ACRYL-60 mixed with water in 3:1
ratio.

B. Brown Coat: One part portland cement, three parts lime, nine
parts dark colored coarse sand, ACRYL-60 mixed with water in 4:1
ratio.

C. Finish Coat: One part portland cement, three parts lime, nine
parts light colored fine sand, ACRYL-60 mixed with water in 5:1
ratio.


SECTION 8


FLAGSTAFF MONUMENT






3-3 MIXING MORTAR: Use approved mechanical batch mixer. While the
mixer is in operation, add approximately 3/4 the required mortar,
1/2 the sand coquina aggregate, and all of the lime and cement and
latex admixture; then the remainder of the sand coquina aggregate.
All the batch to mix briefly; add water sparingly until the mortar
is of a workable consistency. To insure complete hydration, mix for
10 minutes. If the mortar begins to stiffen, retemper the mortar
immediately by adding water and remixing the mortar. Use mortar
within 1-1/2 hour of mixing, after which discard unused mortar.
Retempering within these limits will be permitted only as necessary
to maintain workability.

3-4 CURING: Work shall be kept shaded at all times during this
work through the final curing period of the finish coat and all
applied stucco shall be kept closely and damp through the same
period. Secure approval of shading methodology and curing fabric
and proposed method of keeping stucco surfaces damp before
initiating work under this section.

3-5 SCRATCH COAT APPLICATION:

A. Surface Preparation: All voids and surface discontinuities
shall have been repaired as required to provide sound base for
stucco.

Prior to installation of scratch coat, substrate must be cleaned
with natural fiber bristle brushes to remove all loose or foreign
materials which could interfere with proper bond. Surface shall be
thoroughly washed and saturated with copious amounts of potable
water in advance of application of scratch coat. Work sections
shall be shaded in advance of this washing/saturation and kept
shaded until completion of application of all stucco. Substrate
shall feel and appear damp immediately before application of
scratch coat but shall not evidence a "film" of water.

A slurry of the scratch coat mix shall be thoroughly brushed on the
substrate with natural fiber bristle brushes so that the slurry is
forced into cracks, crevices, and other surface irregularities.

The scratch coat shall be supplied immediately over the slurry with
sufficient material and pressure so that a firm bond is achieved
with the substrate; cross-rake to provide bond for brown coat. Damp
cure scratch coat for 48 hours prior to application of brown coat,
keeping closely covered with damp burlap or other approved fabric
at all times during the curing period.

3-6 BROWN COAT APPLICATION:

Wet scratch coat with potable water just prior to application of
brown coat. Apply brown coat with sufficient material and pressure
to insure firm bond. Bring out to proper thickness and straighten
to a true surface without the use of additional water. Leave
surface rough to receive finish coat.

Maintain shade over work and, in addition, damp cure brown coat for
48 hours prior to application of finish coat keeping closely
covered with damp burlap or other approved fabric at all times
during curing period.





3-7 FINISH COAT APPLICATION:


Wet brown coat with potable water just prior to application of
finish coat. Apply finish coat with sufficient material and
pressure to insure firm bond. Finish coat shall be scratched in
thoroughly and immediately doubled back to fill out to a smooth
dense surface, free of surface blemishes and irregularities. Damp
cure 7 days, keeping closely covered with damp burlap or other
approved fabric at all times during curing period.

3-8 CLEANUP: As work progress and sections are completed, clean
excess stucco, droppings, or spatter from all areas. Remove stucco
rubbish, excess materials, scaffolding tools, and other equipment.
Leave areas in clean and acceptable condition.
