Usage Summary
Preparation

Proper surface preparation is required

  • New or Unpainted Surfaces: New concrete must cure 30 days. Test for loose concrete by pressing masking/cellophane tape on surface, then pull off abruptly. If the tape doesn’t remove concrete, it can be painted. If concrete is removed, scrape down to a sound substrate.
  • Below grade application: Patch all holes or cracks with a fast setting hydraulic cement.
  • Above grade application: Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. All surfaces must be clean, free of dirt, efflorescence and oil. Clean surface with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM™ NO. 991 Cleaner & Etcher.
  • Previously Painted Surfaces: BEHR PREMIUM DryPlus NO. 875 provides best results on bare/untreated surfaces. PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES IN GOOD CONDITION MAY BE PAINTED. HOWEVER, BEHR WILL NOT GUARANTEE RESULTS. Test for loose concrete as stated under “New/Unpainted Surfaces” above. Remove deteriorated coatings. Follow all prep instructions under “New/Unpainted Surfaces” above.
Application
  • Stir well before use.
  • Do not thin or apply at greater spread rate.
  • Use with adequate ventilation.
  • Use product when air/surface temperature is 10-32° C. Apply to dry or slightly damp surfaces. Wipe off any moisture before painting. Apply with a 13-19 mm nap roller, 4 cm nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer @ 155-225 kg/cm2 (2,200-3,200 lbs/in²) PSI using a .023 -.025 spray tip.
  • Two coats minimum are required: First Coat: Use a brush or roller, work onto the surface covering all pores or voids. Repeat for 2nd coat. Spot application may be needed depending on porosity.
  • Important: If leaking persists after 2 coats, it indicates voids and pinholes are still open. Reapply to area.
Dry Time
  • Low temperatures or high humidity conditions will affect drying time.
  • Full cure should be reached in 7-14 days.
Disposal
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product contact your household refuse collection service.
