Before you apply the coating to any concrete surface, it is essential to have a properly cleaned and prepped surface.

Once the surface is cleaned, prepped and primed, apply the epoxy floor paint. Make sure to stir the paint before applying. Apply a thin, even layer using a 9.5 mm (3/8") nap roller cover, a pad applicator or a nylon-polyester brush.
Cut-in using a brush to coat the perimeter of the surface area that is next to the wall.
Apply the stain, using long even strokes. Apply in one direction to avoid lap lines. Apply the stain when air and surface temperatures are between 10 - 32 degrees C (50-90 degrees F). Since concrete varies in texture and porosity, 2 coats may be required for uniform appearance.
Tip: The spread rate on a rough surface is approximately 28 - 37 sq m (300-400 sq. ft) and on a smooth surface, 37 - 46 sq m (400-500 sq. ft.).
Allow the first coat to dry for at least 4-6 hours before re-coating, if necessary. Apply the second coat in a criss-cross direction for uniformity of appearance. Do not apply more than 2 coats.
Tip: Use soap and water for any clean-up.
The surface must be fully cured before use.
Allow 24 hours for light foot traffic.
Allow 72 hours for heavy foot traffic and furniture.
Allow 7 days before subjecting to automotive tires.
Allow 30 days before rinsing or cleaning with a mild detergent.
Tip: Premature heavy traffic will cause paint failure which will require spot re-coating.If necessary, corrugated cardboard may be placed under auto tires after 72 hours.
