- Use stainless steel or galvanized nails to prevent nail staining. Countersink nail heads, repair imperfections and sand smooth. Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
- Use a high quality 3/8 -1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015 - .021" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
- Uncoated concrete or masonry surfaces: Allow new surfaces to cure 30 days. Clean and etch the surface using a product such as a muriatic acid etcher (read and follow all manufacturer's label directions) to achieve a textured profile similar to 150 grit sandpaper.
- Wipe your fingers over the clean, dry floor to check for dust or powder. Ensure there is no residue on your fingers that may have been left from the etcher. If residue is found, rinse the surface to remove residue.
- Allow the surface to dry completely. Sprinkle a few drops of water onto the surface.
- If water is quickly absorbed and the surface feels like 150 grit sandpaper, the surface is ready. If not, re-etch. Spread rate varies, depending on the surface texture, porosity and application method.
- Painted surfaces-concrete: For a painted surface in sound condition, use a product to clean and prepare the surface. If the coating is failing or peeling, use a paint stripper to remove old coating or scrape/sand down to a sound concrete surface.
- Scuffs and glossy surfaces: Clean and spot etch any exposed concrete. Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
- Longer dry time required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity. Allow 72 hours before subjecting to normal use.
- After 30 days, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent. Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
- Properly dispose of all soiled rags.
- For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your household refuse collection service
