  • No harmful solvent odors
  • Resistant to most industrial cleaners and degreasers
  • Has excellent abrasion and non-marking properties
  • Resists yellowing by sunlight
  • Eliminates surface dusting
  • Protects against soil penetration and air pollutants on exterior surfaces
  • Resistant to damage by standing water
  • Exceeds UL requirements for anti-slip coatings

APPLICATION

Interior Floors:

  1. Remove all grease, oil, and other foreign material by scrubbing with a heavy-duty concrete cleaner.
  2. On permanent type coatings, it is recommended that the surface be abraded with a 80-100-mesh screen back disc. Put down a test patch if there is any question of adhesion. Extremely dense concrete may require etching prior to application.
  3. For best results, apply with a lambs wool applicator or a low-pressure sprayer (recommended 40 psi) such as a Hudson, airless or power sprayer.
  4. Allow 30 minutes to one-hour dry time, depending on conditions, before applying a second coat. A third coat is recommended to ensure protection and higher gloss.
  5. The final coat should dry for 6-8 hours before subjecting to heavy traffic.

Exterior Surfaces:

  1. Apply in shade or at a time of day to avoid high surface temperatures or direct sunlight (recommended application temperature range is 50° to 80°F).
  2. Do not apply to new concrete less than 30 days old. 3. Hose down surface with water then clean with high pressure equipment and cleaner. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
  3. Apply with sprayer (40 psi). Use a heavy, wet application to insure adequate sealing. In vertical surfaces, work from the bottom up.
  4. Allow 30 minutes to one-hour dry time, depending on conditions, before applying a second coat. A third coat is recommended to ensure protection and higher gloss.
  5. Allow 30 minutes or more to dry, depending on conditions, before applying second coat. A minimum of two coats is recommended for optimum protection and weathering resistance. Reduce amount of product sprayed on vertical surfaces after first coat to minimize runoff.

NOTE: If there is any evidence of streaking or poor leveling, immediately moisten surface by damp mopping or mist spraying.

CAUTION:

Apply in shade or at time of day to avoid high surface temperatures or direct sunlight. (Recommended application temperature range is 50° - 80°F).

  1. Do not apply to new concrete less then 30 days old. 2. Do not pour unused material back into original container. Product will be damaged if this occurs. 3. Avoid exposure to standing water for 24 hours.

    NOTE: FOOD AREAS: remove any exposed food or food products from area where AQUA CRETE is being applied and while product is drying.
