Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
PreparationBlank space if empty.

The following steps are required

For Uncoated Surfaces:

  • All surfaces must be clean, sound, dry and free of any dirt, oil and grease.
  • New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days prior to priming.
  • Patch all holes and cracks and allow to dry.
  • For touch-ups where surface coatings have failed, completely remove  all loose or peeling paint.
  • Use a paint stripper to remove any previous coatings or sealers.
  • Clean and etch 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.

For Previously Coated Surfaces:

  • 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.
  • Scuff sand glossy surfaces.
  • Clean and spot etch any exposed concrete.
  • Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
