Concrete surface must be clean and free of all contaminants and water. Do not apply if rain is forecast within 24 hours. If moisture is present or if the surface is not clean and free of all contaminants, the sealer may have white spots and have premature delamination and failure.
Substrate temperature must be no less than 50 degrees F and not exceed 80 degrees F. If applied outside these limits the sealer may not achieve adequate film formation and may have excessive air entrapment, bubbles, blushing or hazing. Note that in direct sunlight, substrate temperature can exceed 150 degrees F which can cause extreme bubbling issues.
Stir well before using. Material may separate during long term storage.
Apply using a 3/8” – 1/2” nap roller cover using long even uniform strokes at approximately 200-350 square feet per gallon depending on porosity and texture of substrate. A Chapin style solvent resistant sprayer is not recommended for this sealer due to high content of solids. Thick or puddle areas may prevent the solvent from evaporating and may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which may cause milky white spots. Applying too thin may cause sealer to prematurely delaminate, flake or wear away. Allow sealer to dry for 24 hours for light traffic and at least 48 hours for heavy traffic. If ap-plying two coats, wait approximately 4 – 6 hours between coats.
It is always recommended to test the product in a small, inconspicuous area (on the same concrete sub-strate) for desired results prior to application. Coverage rates may vary for all coatings and substrates depending on porosity, density, texture etc. If applying by spray method, extended coverage rates may be achieved, but be aware that less material will be applied and inadequate film formation or performance expectations may be limited. DO NOT USE ON BRICK.
