Decra Kote 4000 is an interior/exterior water reducible acrylic finish with superior film properties, formulated to provide a low sheen & hard protective finish on asphalt, concrete or other masonry surfaces. Decra Kote 4000 may be applied over old paint if it is firmly bonded and shows no signs of delamination. Decra Kote 4000 may not properly bond to glossy paints. A test patch & adhesion check is recommended by using duct tape after two full days of proper drying. When selecting colors, dark colors are better for high traffic areas. Light colors are more preferable for foot traffic areas, such as patios, pool decks, & walkways as lighter colors are cooler.
Patios, walkways, pool decks, garage floors, concrete & asphalt driveways and metal surfaces. Not recommended for wood.
Note: When applying to metal surfaces, #5501 metal primer should be used prior to application of Decra Kote 4000.
