Preparation

The following steps and products are required.

  • New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days.

  • Remove old coating or sealer, if present, using a product such as KILZConcrete & Masonry Paint Stripper. Test: Sprinkle a few drops of water onto the surface. If water is quickly absorbed, the surface is ready. If not absorbed, re-etch.

  • For proper penetration and adhesion of topcoat, use a product such as KILZ Concrete & Masonry Cleaner & Etcher to clean and etch the surface.

  • Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product.

  • For areas subject to automotive traffic, apply a product such as KILZ Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer to increase adhesion of topcoat to the surface

  • Follow all label instructions.

Application

  • DO NOT DILUTE.

  • Intermix all cans of same product to ensure color uniformity. Stir stain before and occasionally during application.

  • For best results, apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F.

  • Apply a thin, even coat using a 1/4"-3/8" nap roller cover, pad applicator or a nylon/polyester brush. Use long, even strokes in one direction to avoid lap lines. Since concrete varies in texture/porosity, two coats may be required for uniform color appearance. Apply a second coat in a criss-cross direction if uniformity is needed.

  • Periodic touch-ups may be necessary.

  • COVERAGE: 500-600 sq. ft. per gallon on smooth surfaces and of 400-500 sq. ft. per gallon on rough surfaces.

Dry Time

  • Dries to touch in 2 hours. Longer dry time required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity. Recoat between 2-4 hour.

  • The floor may be subjected to light foot traffic after 24 hours. Allow 72 hours before subjecting surface to heavy foot traffic or repositioning furniture.

  • Park tires on corrugated cardboard for 14 days after applying stain. After two weeks, dry stained surface may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.

Cautions / Limitations
