Surface Preparation The surface must be clean, dry or slightly damp, and free from stains, oil, grease, dirt, and incompatible coatings to ensure proper adhesion and performance.

For Fresh Concrete

  • Apply as soon as the surface water has evaporated and walking on the concrete won’t mar the surface. Apply uniformly at 300-400 sq ft per gallon. For enhanced curing and sealing protection, a second coat may be applied at 400 sq ft per gallon once the first coat has dried.

For Existing Concrete

  • Apply to clean, dry surfaces to renovate existing concrete, brick, or terrazzo floors, making them brighter and easier to maintain. This can be applied at a rate of 400-600 sq ft per gallon, adjusting for porosity and texture of the surface.

Additional Application Notes

  • Do not apply on hot surfaces or in direct sunlight. For optimal results, maintain high pressure in pump-up sprayers to ensure a steady, even spray pattern. Keep the sprayer tip within 12 inches of the surface.
  • Apply in thin, uniform coats. Avoid one heavy coat to prevent puddling. Two thin coats are recommended, with the second coat applied only after the first has thoroughly dried.


Available in 5-gallon pails.
