Usage

You can apply the mixed material with a brush, roller, trowel, notched squeegee, or even a gauge rake. Backroll evenly to maintain the desired thickness within the usable pot life time frame.

If concrete conditions or aggressive mixing causes air entrapment, an air release roller tool should be used prior to the coaling tacking off to remove the air entrapped in the coating. If the material becomes thick while applying and sticking to the application tools, stop applying, and discard the mixed material. At this point, it has reached the end of the usable pot life.

While applying, it is important to keep a wet edge to prevent streaking. It is recommended to work in sections usually using control joints as dividers to ensure proper application results. Do not allow to Puddle!

If recoating outside the suggested recoat window, sanding using an 80-100 grit sanding screen should be performed to ensure adequate adhesion between coats.

Applying material outside the suggested parameters may result in product failure. It is always recommended to test the product in a small, inconspicuous area (on the same concrete substrate) for desired results prior to application. Coverage rates may vary for all coatings and substrates depending on porosity, density, texture, etc. When applying, do not exceed 300 sq. ft. per gallon. Applying too thin of a coaling may cause inadequate film formation or performance expectations may be limited. DO NOT USE ON BRICK.
